Season 1, Ep. 3
We fix Phil's issue with elilo on Slackware64, and move on to discuss dependencies in Slackware. We touch a little on 64bit ARM and why there's no 64bit Slackware ARM port yet. We cover a little more history of the roots of Slackware ARM and how the speed of Linux on ARM back in the early days was somewhat disappointing - possibly because of non-optimal compiled code (but also just because the hardware really wasn't amazing!)
Season 1, Ep. 2
The SARPi project is (probably) the largest avenue through which new users find Slackware ARM, and perhaps Slackware: SARPi may be the first glimpse that a person has into Slackware. We discuss how Phil sees SARPi's position within the ecosystem, and how he recognises and respects that by working respectfully with the upstream.We move on to discussing working without the safety nets present in other distributions (that are absent in Slackware) by paying attention to what you're doing and developing your confidence and knowledge.We touch a little on the Slackware ARM build system and how the new system results in a more stable distribution.
