It looks as though any decent typewriter lookalike would suffice.

Maybe you could e-mail them and ask?

Q: What is the original Slackware font as used in the old-style
Slackware-with-an-underline style logo ?

A: Old response: We *think* it's simply "Courier New."
New response I just got from: Paul O'Leary McCann

I've checked the main Slackware logo (name-with-underline) against some
fonts, and it looks like it's Courier, not Courier New as you have it in
the FAQ. It also looks a hell of a lot like Rockwell. Courier New is
inappropriate because it rounds off the ends of the letters, which isn't
very slack of it. Figured this might be of some assistance; it helps me
since I'm making a shirt for myself. -POLM

damn thread necromancy :(

The font is TeX cmtt. The whole logo is made in TeX.
