Splack Linux – a Linux distribution based on Slackware, for Sparc and Ultrasparc architecture.

Slackware Linux is the oldest distribution still in service and a common distribution for users among the GULCR (Grupo de Usuarios de Linux de Costa Rica) as well as the FuerzaG hacker group and in servers for Universidad Latina (ULatina) that were using the i386 architecture, as this the only architecture supported by the distribution at the time. The big servers all where Sun and ran Solaris 2.6.

For some time Slackware turned into a team with some people in charge of PPC port, and David Cantrell in charge of a port for sparc that I used quite a bit. We had a lot of Sun hardware available at ULatina and it was my favorite distribution. At the time to use other architectures Debian GNU/Linux was, and still is the default as they supported about 8 architectures at the time.

The Slackware sparc port didn’t lived long but was more than enough to get kernel, basic libraries and ssh and other tools on a Sun workstation or server.

Splack project was under active development between 2001-Jul-14 and 2006-Aug-05.
The project developer is Alvaro Figueroa.
