Where To Download Slackware 3.9?

Packaging/Compiling/Client Information Forums, including Author's chit chat forum and soon others.

Ok, maybe it is a loose nut behind the keyboard but I can only find Slackware back to @ version 8. If someone would be kind enough to supply a link to download the version to use for Freesco package making, I would appreciate it.

Thank you!

I think I have it on a cd somewhere (besides on my test system)
I'll try and create an ISO for downloading when I get home, and send you the link later.

I created a Nero (nrg) file and zipped it (+45Mb zip, 100Mb unzipped)
you can get it <a href='http://thasaidon.homeip.net/packages/0.3.x/non-package/zipslack39.zip' target='_blank'>HERE!</a>

Let me know if it works...
It's an image from an OLD cd :P

I found these:

<a href='http://ftp.riken.jp/Linux/slackware-iso/slackware-4.0-iso/slackware-3.9-install.iso' target='_blank'>http://ftp.riken.jp/Linux/slackware-iso/sl...3.9-install.iso</a> 28-Sep-2005 10:49 648M
<a href='http://ftp.riken.jp/Linux/slackware-iso/slackware-4.0-iso/slackware-3.9-install.iso.gz.md5' target='_blank'>http://ftp.riken.jp/Linux/slackware-iso/sl...tall.iso.gz.md5</a> 28-Sep-2005 10:49 60

The original Slackware 3.9 CD set was 4 CDs... I guess the next question is: what were you after - just packages, or the complete source for everything?...

Another site is <a href='ftp://ftp.slackware.no/pub/linux/slackware/slackware-3.9/' target='_blank'>ftp://ftp.slackware.no/pub/linux/slackware/slackware-3.9/</a> but they don't have any ISOs for 3.9, just the files that were on the CDs, all together in folders (a1, a2, a3, ... xv1, y1). If you're looking to pick and choose from just a few extra packages/source, that may be your best bet. Other non-ISO mirrors are:
<a href='http://search.belnet.be/mirror/ftp.slackware.com/slackware-3.9/' target='_blank'>http://search.belnet.be/mirror/ftp.slackwa.../slackware-3.9/</a>

<a href='http://ftp.be.debian.org/mirror/ftp.slackware.com/slackware-3.9/' target='_blank'>http://ftp.be.debian.org/mirror/ftp.slackw.../slackware-3.9/</a>

HTH!

Thank you all for the links!

I downloaded the Zipslack but then forgot it at work :rolleyes:

I was able to download all the add-on 'disk' folders but not the ISO's due to the connections stopping. I tried three times, oh well will keep trying next week.

My aim is to try my hand at making a package or even just compiling a few programs such as newer SAMBA or a real network time server for Freesco.

I hope your not referring to my connection? Otherwise I'll have to look into it...

Thasaidon (wow, I can spell that now without looking at the previous post :blink: ), your connection did fine. Thank you for posting that. I have the zipslack file @ work and will bring it home next week.

Remember, zipslack 3.9 needs a LOT of updating to get libraries and missing binaries etc. upto speed to get more complex compilation jobs through. Its good enough "out of the box" for simple stuff though.

These wiki articles may be of interest:

Thank you for the information and 'heads-up' about Zipslack.

I think the image I created from my cd already contains the "ready to use" zipslack for Freesco compiling. But I'm not sure since this is a very old cd so just double check to make sure.

I altered my dir structure to fit the regular packages dir structure.
The zipslack iso can now be found here
