Slackware's ambigram logo

sinic's Slack

This site is in no way affiliated with the official Slackware project, despite possible similarities in design. But if you couldn't tell that from the domain name already, this distribution probably isn't for you anyways. All packages have been tested on (my customized) Slackware64 13.37; your mileage may vary.

Modified Packages

I've modified some packages from upstream to better suit my needs. The modifications mostly consist of either one line changes or inclusion of my own patches. I keep the build number in sync with the official version, refer to the upload date when deciding whether to installpkg --reinstall a given package. My name is only appended as a tag for easier management, I do not claim authorship of these packages!
