Do you mean, probably, how to patch Slackware 14.1?

I) You can either do that automatically with "slackpkg" (as root):

1) Uncomment one mirror in "/etc/slackpkg/mirrors"
2) Issue "slackpkg update gpg"
3) Then "slackpkg update"
4) And finally "slackpkg upgrade-all"
5) Where needed, choose how to manage new configuration files

II) ... or manually, with the Slackware package tools:

1) Download the patches from a Slackware mirror (this is for 32 bit, edit the url if your system is 64 bit)
2) For each package, do "upgradepkg <package_name>" (as root)
3) Where needed, choose how to manage new configuration files

Useful and interesting documentation:

Code:
man slackpkg
man installpkg
man upgradepkg
man removepkg
man pkgtool
