Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.14!
I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.14-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.14 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released (20140331).
