Slackware. Slackware is a Linux distribution created by Patrick Volkerding in 1993. Originally based on Softlanding Linux System, Slackware has been the basis for many other Linux distributions, most notably the first versions of SUSE Linux distributions,[3][4] and is the oldest distribution that is still maintained.[5] Slackware is available for the IA-32 and x86-64 architectures, with a port to the ARM architecture.

While Slackware is mostly[13] free and open source software, it does not have a formal bug tracking facility or public code repository, with releases periodically announced by Volkerding. There is no formal membership procedure for developers and Volkerding is the primary contributor to releases. Converting Installation Files.
