I am sitting here using the pi4, while the lab computer, running Slackware of course, is downloading the files I need to get this beast up and running with slackware. I discovered, to my dismay, that they don't have 14.2 setup for the Pi 4, and don't have any intention of doing so. Sooo, I guess it will be Slackware current. I have the 32gig micro sd made, with the loader, and am in the process of downloading the needed files to a USB stick. It is taking a while to download. More to follow.;)

The more I explore the Raspberry pi, the more I like it. A perfect example is the Raspian operating system. I was exploring it to find the software updater. There is none, because you update it from the command line, similar to updating slackware:cool: using the following 2 commands:

sudo apt -y update

sudo apt -y upgrade

The ethernet switch on my desk wass flashing like crazy for 7 minutes 4 seconds as it fetched 821MB of updates. Now we will see how long it takes to install it all.
