Product: Slackware 4-CD Set, Further Information


4 to 8 MB RAM, 12 MB hard disk space (40 to 300 MB recommended). An installation with C/C++, development tools, networking, XFree86 v3.3.1, and several applications uses 80MB.

Further Information:

"Slackware is heavy-duty for mid-size businesses and departments but user-friendly enough for home users." - Info World

The Official Linux Slackware turns your machine into a powerful 32-bit multitasking workstation. Linux is a UNIX clone, developed by Linus Torvalds and thousands of volunteers on the Internet.

Develop programs with a full range of software development, text editing, and image processing tools. Play popular games. Connect your machine to the Internet and set up a WWW site, use electronic mail, and read netnews.

Patrick Volkerding, the maintainer of Slackware, authored this CDROM set. The first CDROM contains the easy to install Linux system (kernel 2.0.35), full source code, and a live Linux file system. The second CDROM contains Linux archives and a fully installed, ready-to-run Linux system. Just pop the disc into any bootable CDROM drive and you can test-drive Linux on your machine (including the X Window System) in seconds! The third and fourth CDROMs contain software carefully selected from the best Internet Linux archive sites.

The Official Linux Slackware requires 8 MB of memory, 12 MB of hard disk space (for a CDROM dependent installation), and a 3.5 floppy disk or bootable CDROM drive. For better performance, install Slackware Linux to your hard disk using 40 to 400 MB. A basic installation with C/C++, development tools, networking, the X Window System (v. 3.3.2), and several applications uses 180 MB. For a full installation, a 500 MB (or larger) partition is recommended.

A full installation includes teTeX TeX, GNU C/C++/Objective-C (egcs-1.0.3, gcc-, and gcc-2.8.1), GNU Fortran-77 (v. 0.5.23), Tcl (v. 8.0p2), Tk (v. 8.0p2), TclX (v. 8.0.2), make, byacc and GNU bison, flex, the 5.4.46 C libraries (and a version of the experimental glibc libraries), gdb, GNU common LISP (v. 2.2.2), p2c (Pascal to C), m4, perl (v. 5.005_02), rcs, emacs (v. 20.3), TCP/IP networking, SLIP/PPP, IP accounting and firewalls, Java SDK, BSD sendmail (v. 8.9.1), inn, cnews, nn, tin, trn, fvwm95, XF86Setup, ghostscript, xv (v. 3.10a), GNU chess, TkDesk (v. 1.0), gnuplot, xfractint, the Apache HTTP (WWW) server (v. 1.3.3), Lynx (v. 2.8), and Netscape Communicator.

The Official Linux Slackware is compatible with most PC hardware & supports most CDROM drives, sound, ethernet, and mice. The advanced 2.0.35 kernel will provide stellar performance on high-end systems, including support for symmetric multi-processing (up to 16 processors), PCI, and special code optimizations for the 386, 486, Pentium, Pentium Pro, and Pentium II.

Join the hundreds of thousands of other Slackware users around the world who have found a better way to compute.
