The last version | Released: 12.2 | February 2, 2009

Slamd64 – the first unofficial port of Slackware to the x86-64 architecture. The project started (the first alpha release) in January 2005, and finished in 2009. Support for 32-bit binaries was removed for the 11.0 release, but was reintroduced in the 12.0 release.

The latest version of Slamd64 12.2 features packages such as:
– Linux kernel 2.6.27.7
– GCC 4.2.4
– Apache HTTPD 2.2.10, with SSL support and PHP 5.2.8
– KDE 3.5.10
– XFCE 4.4.3
– Mozilla Firefox 3.0.5
– Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0.0.19
– Sun Java (JRE and JDK) 6u11

Slamd64 12.2 provides seamless FHS-compliant 32-bit compatibility, via a multilib system (/lib for 32-bit libraries and /lib64 for 64-bit libraries). This provides easier and increased support for both existing 32-bit software (in most cases, you can just install a package designed for Slackware with no special work needed), and for 64-bit binaries too (which require /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 to be present) such as the NVidia drivers, without requiring compatability symlinks which clutter the root directory and remove the separation of 32 and 64-bit binaries.

The project founder is Fred Emmott.
