I can't connect either, but I can dig and whois the site. A traceroute, though, did not connect, even after I set it for max 200 hops.

Code:
traceroute -m 200 fatdog.eu

The problem with fatdog.eu network is that I don't own it and I don't host it. That's basically it, in a nutshell.

The fatdog.eu network has been inaccessible for approx. 8 days. I don't know why it is down. I don't know when it will be back up. Or if it will be back up. I'm relying on other people for that to happen. Unfortunately, I don't have any further information to offer. I can only apologise for any inconvenience caused.

That's because you are querying the 'whois' database, not the fatdog.eu website. The 'whois' database is hosted on another server, on another network, and will still be available when any domains it features aren't.

Thank you for your kind words. It's Slackware/Slackware ARM that affords me considerable latitude in design and content. Slackware keeps things simple and uncomplicated. I've tried to emulate that philosophy with the SARPi project. I hope it shows.

Anyway, until fatdog.eu network is back up and accessible you can find the SARPi stuff here: www.penthux.net/sarpi

NB: Some content isn't working because it relies on the fatdog.eu network to be alive. You'll have to work with and around that. The guides/tutorials, installers, packages, downloads (etc.) are there. A new build running kernel 4.9.66 was uploaded a few days ago.

Exaga, are you planning to make a site for Banana Pi, too?

The installation documentation is in the Slackware ARM tree, but it doesn't have nice pictures like Exaga's :-)

drmozes, this How-To, is applicable to BananaPi M3 also?

No. There's no need when the Banana Pi is officially supported under Slackware ARM. As Mozes posted...

If I created a "SABPi" website I'd just be stealing all the juicy content from Mozes' install docs and adding nice pictures to it.

WOOHOO! Mozes has published some of the dark secrets to Slackware ARM installation success. <copy-n-paste | copy-n-paste>

The M3 is a different device - it's not supported by any distribution, as far as I know.

Those are customised versions with modified kernels. I mean the upstream distribution - e.g. installing a copy of Debian, Ubuntu et al from the official repositories.
I looked into the M3 maybe a couple of years ago, and it was entirely unsupported by the mainline Kernel and I got the impression that it never would be.
That's one of the problems with the ARM ecosystem. The support for it gets added in a private (or at least separate) repository and is usually tied to a specific Kernel major release. The patches don't get developed nor submitted upstream, and will no longer apply to the latest release.
For a distribution with multiple targets, you have to be able to build the Kernel for all supported devices.

I was disappointed after purchasing a bpi m2. I was new to all this arm stuff and only found out after the fact as per drmozes above. Lemaker made banapis and bananapros onto which slackwarearm installs with no problem. Problem is they are getting harder to find. Sinovoip also made a version of the bananapi on which I believe another member of this forum successfully installed slackwarearm. With different specs and soc's the m2 and the m3 will only run with a distro specifically customised for it and even then everything might not work. I tossed my m2 as I preferred running slack on everything I use.

If you have an M3 and want to run linux you'd best look at Armbian. There is an m3 image to be had there, I had armbian running on the my M2 but I never was a big debian fan.

For Banana Pi M2, you can build a ready-made image of current and mainline kernel
just do not have to test it all
