003: Dependencies in Slackware, 64bit ARM and more roots of Slackware ARM

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!)
