HPR - HPR3303: Slackware on RaspberryPi

1 post in this topic

a little history

  • slackware on arm started by stuart winter in 2002
  • became an official port of slackware in 2009
  • lots of info at the video podcast on youtube

why choose slackware

  • can do minimal installs easy
  • education
  • stable and secure

who should avoid slackware

  • unwilling or unable to read and follow directions
  • if you think your leet when you use apt instead of apt-get
  • if you think commands like dd are 'scary'

howto

  • there is no official port of slackware arm to raspberrypi
  • i think this is because of raspberrypi has a non standard way of booting compared to most arm devices
  • community has stepped in

on the slackware documentation project website there are 'manual' install projects

  • took a while, had to download firmware from the raspberrypi project itself
  • quite a bit of cleanup
  • this is the guide if you want slackware on a pi-zero

link to the sarpi project

  • guy named phil project lead, started in 2012
  • the sarpi project is also a manual process
  • even if you don't do this you should look at the website content, this is the way to do a tutorial
  • after you download the sources this install is exactly like any other slackware install
  • when you get to the package selection its easy to customize

after install

  • you have a complete development environment
  • be prepared to up your search foo
  • many packages can be built from slackbuilds

The only mistakes you can't learn from are, your own fatal mistakes
