Unlike every other distro, Slackware doesn’t brand anything. Everything is vanilla. So when you boot, you see the original linux penguin logo at the top of your screen.
Download the latest kernel source from kernel.org. I’ll be using here kernel 2.6.32 source and 184.108.40.206 patch. So you understand that you don’t need to download the whole kernel source every-time a new kernel version is released. If you have the previous source or a kernel source which is older, say 2.6.31, then you will need all the subsequent incremental patches from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168 and you will need to apply them one by one to the kernel source. I’ll just be showing one.
