 The easiest way to obtain a [[https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html|free and libre]] Slackware flavor is by installing from our ISO image, which is a deblobbed version of the official Slackware ISO. We replaced the kernel with [[http://www.fsfla.org/ikiwiki/selibre/linux-libre/|Linux-libre]], removed other [[https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/categories.en.html#non-freeSoftware|non-free]] bits, and adjusted slackpkg configuration to use our repository, while leaving everything else in place. The easiest way to obtain a [[https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html|free and libre]] Slackware flavor is by installing from our ISO image, which is a deblobbed version of the official Slackware ISO.

-Just as the latest iterations of the stock Slackware, the link /boot/vmlinuz points at the huge kernel by default, while the link /boot/vmlinuz-generic points at the generic kernel. You can follow the [[http://docs.slackware.com/slackware:beginners_guide#switch_to_a_generic_kernel|official instructions]] for building the initrd image and configuring lilo without changing a word.+Just as the latest iterations of the stock Slackware, the link /boot/vmlinuz points at the huge kernel by default, while the link /boot/vmlinuz-generic points at the generic kernel.
  
 Note also that you can switch to a generic kernel as early as during the installation phase, right after you quit the setup program, but before you reboot. You just have to settle for editing files with vi and prepending <code>chroot /mnt</code> when calling mkinitrd* and lilo.  Note also that you can switch to a generic kernel as early as during the installation phase, right after you quit the setup program, but before you reboot.

-The highlights include the [[https://freeslack.net/fxp/freeslack64-14.2/source/fxp/cfg/deblob-slackware.txt|rsync blacklist]] we use when pulling from the (non-free) stock repository. The purpose of the list is to trim all non-free bits so early that they never get a chance to arrive at our production host. We are highly concerned with the accuracy and the currency of this list, so you would do us a great favor by helping us improve it.+The highlights include the [[https://freenix.net/fxp/freeslack64-14.2/source/fxp/cfg/deblob-slackware.txt|rsync blacklist]] we use when pulling from the (non-free) stock repository.
