VPS Service with Slackware


I was looking for some Virtual Private Server service that had an image of a full slackware installation, preferentially version 14.0 64 bits, for OpenVZ, Xen, or other virtualization environment. I only found a crippled (not all packages) image of Slackware 12.0.

Do you know any service that provides it?

If you already use Slackware, then perhaps you can roll your own.
You can start from here: http://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/1...stem/xen/domU/

linode.com does provide Slackware (as well as other distros). The one I have was a minimal install and I added packages as needed using slackpkg. I don't remember seeing a full install as one of their options though

Chiming in late here, but I use Host Virtual. They don't offer a Slackware 14.0 image, but their support folks are happy to set you up to install from an ISO.

I think you'd better install from iso to have full control. http://www.xfusesolutions.com provide KVM VPS, and you could basically install whatever you need via their VNC function remotely after they mount the install ISO for you. I installed slackware 14.0 there and the cost is about 6USD/month.
