Slackware ARM / AArch64 Development information

For the background and context on the Slackware ARM / AArch64 development model, and how to get involved, please see this document

The purpose of this document is to provide an exposition of how individual Hardware Models are directly integrated (so that the hardware is supported “out of the box”) into Slackware ARM / AArch64. These serve as live examples and templates for the Slackware ARM community to use to support this endeavour.

Please note that some Hardware Models may require additional changes. These are topics for the Slackware ARM mailing list.
