    install Slackware-Current from scratch


    presently i am running Gentoo Linux. i keep my system as single booted and now i want to install Slackware-Current as i need gcc 4.x for the project i will work on + i want to have 2.6 kernel whereas Slackware 11 has gcc 3.x and 2.4 kernel.

    i tried Google and archives of different forums forums but did not get any information on how to install Slackware-Current from scratch. any ideas or pointers to information ?

    thanks

    I've never tried it, and don't know if it works or if it's still active, but check here:

    Any reason you can not install 11 and then upgrade it to -current?

    Is it posible to upgrade to GCC 4.x (from Slackware 11) without breaking the installed system ?

    (i say so because i guess, GCC upgrade will demand for GLIBC upgrade and that is the basic system on which every distro is built)
