Arm architecture release 14.1?

Post by chris_alife » 28. Jun 2019, 07:56

Hi,
I'm wondering if there is a 14.2 release for Arm?
I have a Pinebook 11" on order and I notice the latest release is 14.01 ( http://download.salixos.org/arm/ ).

I understand that this is a community release, but there exists a 14.2 Slackware release ( http://arm.slackware.com/installation/ ).

Are there any plans to update Salix Arm to 14.2?

What are the major differneces between 14.1 & 14.2? Ie, should I even care about the incremental update?

I see some resources, but no real discussion on the topic about success/failure.

Has anyone else here tried Slackware/Salix on a Pine64 board?

For 14.2, the answer is probably not.

I've been contemplating an arm release, perhaps especially targetted to the raspberry pi, but with slackware arm being softfloat up until 14.2, I didn't see much of a point. With the move to hardfloat in current, it may be that that the next release will become a better option.
