lackware aims for design stability and simplicity and to be the most “Unix-like” Linux distribution.[7] It makes as few modifications as possible to software packages from upstream and tries not to anticipate use cases or preclude user decisions. In contrast to most modern Linux distributions, Slackware provides no graphical installation procedure and no automatic dependency resolution of software packages. It uses plain text files and only a small set of shell scripts for configuration and administration. Without further modification it boots into a command-line interface environment. Because of its many conservative and simplistic features, Slackware is considered to be most suitable for advanced and technically inclined Linux users.


Install using Ignition

Slackware can be installed using the Ignition installer. Flash Ignition to an SD card, then use Ignition to download and install Slackware automatically. As an alternative, get the images directly from, unpack and write to your sdcard.
