try running droplinegnome-installer -force

that will force an install but it is not recommended since dropline Gnome 2.14.1 is built in a Slackware10.2. it might now work when installed into an earlier version of Slackware.

I would highly suggest you install Slackware 10.2 before installing Dropline GNOME 2.14.x. Things will likely not work correctly if you forcibly install it on older Slackware releases.

Additionally, you are missing out on lots of bugfixes if you don't update to the latest stable Slackware release.
