Wait a minute ... don't you mean Slackware Commodore 64?

Just kidding.

Interesting news though.  I wonder what this will mean for the various unofficial Slack 64 projects?  And what will it mean for VL (including VL64)?

I'm curious.

official and synchroneous 64 build

Just a note there are no 32 bit binaries, which means if it is not a 64 bit app
it will not compile.

Right now on my 64-bit box only think that needs 32bit libraries is WINE. And as I heard that hurdle will be eliminated in wine64
