ConnochaetOS slack-n-free repo
Many GNU/Linux enthusiasts had contact with with the Slackware GNU/Linux distro and appreciate it's clear structure. Slackware follows the Unix and KISS principles very strictly.
Slackware is the oldest surviving and still maintained GNU/Linux distro out there. For experienced GNU/Linux users Slackware is very simple to administrate. That's why many GNU/Linux users prefer the simplicity of Slackware over GUI driven configuration wizards
Unfortunately Slackware does not have a clear policy about what software can be included, and nonfree blobs are included in Linux, the kernel.
There are sevceral fully free distros which are based on popular GNU/Linux Distros, for example Trisquel, which is based on Ubuntu, BLAG is based on RedHat/Fedora and Parabola GNU/Linux is based on Arch. But curiously there is no fully free Slackware equivalent.
Although ConnochaetOS is only available for 32 bit the slack-n-free repo comes in AMD 64 bit flavour as well. So if you are using 64 bit Salix/Slackware it is possible to transform it into a free distro with the slack-n-free repo
You can find the repo at https://connochaetos.org/slack-n-free/
The usual “generic” and “huge” kernel builds are available vor i686 (32 bit) and amd64 (x86_64, 64) bit.
Depending on future interest there may be additionally and liberated packages available for Slackware later.
Hint: The binary packages are signed with a GPG key. You can download the public key at https://connochaetos.org/slack-n-free/GPG-KEY
