Official Raspberry pi support?


To my understanding Slackware does not officially support the raspberry pi but fatdog who is part of the community does. I want to use the Slackware for arm that's up on the main slackearearm site and not.the one from fatdog (http://rpi.fatdog.eu/index.php?p=sdconfig) for the pi, is this possible?

Yes absolutely. Use the FatDog installer. If you go through the installation instructions you'll see that you are in fact downloading the official packages either to a USB stick, or instructing the installer to install from the ftp.arm.slackware.com FTP site.

Ahh I see, I was a bit confused as there are so many different options, I thought it was either or but it turns out I need both or at least just the installer and install from internet.
