Question to drmozes :)
 
Do you plan to port Slackware on an aarch64 platform soon? Actually armv7 is 32 bits so does a 64 bits version is in your project?

I honestly think he just doesn't want to do it. :rolleyes:

No.

A few people have asked about this when they noticed the 64bit support appearing within the build scripts.
This is because I was touching every build script, updating them for other reasons and decided to add that at the same time; should I ever fancy porting it in the future, I can tinker around with it easily.
I do maintain an awareness of the goings on with aarch64 upstream (kernel, glibc, major packages, etc.) but don't dig into it.

For now I have no need for 64 bit ARM hardware and I don't own any.
It's not possible to maintain a stable release, -current plus another architecture without it being a paid-for business in its own right.
Once I see 32bit becoming abandoned upstream, I'll look at 64-bit - if indeed I'm still doing this at that point!

Someone else is already doing a 64bit port - have a look at that.
