Precompiled Slackware Packages for ARM from Insanely Witty Stupidity

With great regret (and concern), I must inform users that Dr. Mozes has decided to develop only 64-bit SlackwareArm (instead of developing only 32-bit SlackwareArm-- which is fully capable of running on both 32-bit and 64-bit ARM systems). So-- SlackwareArm will no longer run on top of 32-bit ARM hardware-- obsoleting an entire line of useful computer systems, unnecessarily. This is a poor technical choice on the part of Dr. Mozes (and, it brings into question the future of the Slackware project-- and Insanely Witty Stupidity's motivation to continue supporting the software suite). Insanely Witty Stupidity will proceed by switching all of its ARM systems to ports that are provided by the Bonslack project (maintained by Italian hacker Luca Bonissi). And, Insanely Witty Stupidity will adopt the Bonslack project's ARM ports (it has many others as well) as viable alternatives to SlackwareArm. So if you're looking for Insanely Witty Stupidity's recent precompiled packages built for ARM based Slackware, follow the Bonslack links below. ;)

SlackwareArm 14.1 (32-bit soft float)
SlackwareArm 14.2 (32-bit hard float)
Bonslack armv5 15.0 (32-bit soft float)
Bonslack armv7 15.0 (32-bit hard float)
Bonslack aarch64 15.0 (64-bit)

Random Fact: The name "Insanely Witty Stupidity" is a sarcastic homage to William Shakespeare's pretentious (and completely confusing) application of poetic literature in character dialog. After all-- the lack of realism portrayed by Shakespeare character interactions makes it difficult for people to take the work seriously.
