Installers and system packages

SARPi installer images and system packages for Slackware ARM or Slackware AArch64 on the Raspberry Pi devices.

Additional packages

Additional Slackware ARM packages, supporting the SARPi mini-projects and any other needful purpose(s).

Important: SARPi Project development of Slackware ARM 14.2 related software on the Raspberry Pi 2 and the Raspberry Pi 3 ended on 29 February 2020, and ended for the Raspberry Pi (1) and Raspberry Pi 4 on 13 March 2021. No future SARPi installers or packages are anticipated. More recent Slackware ARM releases should be installed where applicable.

NB: Be aware that Slackware ARM 14.2 is a soft float port, and is the only Slackware ARM version which can be installed on a Raspberry Pi (1). The application binary interface (ABI) uses different flags for hard float versions and, as such, is incompatible with ARMv6 architecture. All subsequent [Slackware ARM 15.0] releases are hard float port versions, including Slackware AArch64. There's a Slackware ARM - FAQ - soft float and hard float by MoZes, with additional information.

* All SARPi build timestamps are based on the UTC timezone.

SARPi installer images and system packages

The SARPi installer images and system packages have been built natively and specifically for the Raspberry Pi devices. The installer images incorporate the kernel_sarpi, kernel-modules-sarpi, sarpi-boot-firmware, and sarpi-hacks packages. These installer images are all built on Raspberry Pis, running the Slackware OS for which they are intended, using the official Slackware ARM installer initial RAM disk and Raspberry Pi Foundation GitHub repository sources. Additional Slackware ARM packages are available on their corresponding version page(s). To ensure and maintain absolute compatibility, none of the installers or packages built by the SARPi Project are cross-compiled or created on any other platform.

Support for Slackware ARM

If you're in need of help, or have something to contribute, one of the best places to get (and offer) support for Slackware ARM is on the Linux Questions Forum. Another valuable resource is the Slackware Documentation Project.

It's always worth bearing in mind that the Slackware Linux project is entirely funded from donations. If you'd like to show your appreciation, and/or support the development of Slackware, you can sponsor the project on Patrick Volkerding's Slackware Linux project donation page. For Slackware ARM, you can also sponsor the project.
