Fresh installation of Slackware 13 -64 and Slackbuilds/sbopkg


I am planning on doing a fresh installation of slackware 13 for 64 bit.

Can I assume that all the environmental variables are set up so that Slackbuilds and/or sbopkg will work or do I need to tweak buildscripts or profiles?

TIA

There is a new FAQ on SlackBuilds.org that deals with how to use SlackBuild scripts in a 64-bit system.

Quote:
What is the easiest way to use the scripts on Slackware64?

* Set ARCH=x86_64 in your build environment; this can be done several different ways, but here are a few suggestions:
1. Manually specify it on the command line when running the script, e.g.
ARCH=x86_64 ./chemtool.SlackBuild
2. Manually set it in your shell environment prior to running build scripts, for example:
root@host# ARCH=x86_64
root@host# export ARCH
3. Edit your shell's inititialization files to set it, e.g. in $HOME/.bashrc or the equivalent
4. Create (or edit) a custom script in /etc/profile.d/, for example:
/etc/profile.d/local_setup.sh to set it systemwide
5. Roll your own solution if you don't like any of our suggestions :-)

Yes I saw that but I was not sure if that applied to 64 bit systems as they were in current/testing or whether the fresh new release of Slackware 13 would come with variables ready set.

Slackbuilds.org is always following the stable release and keeps slackbuilds from the previous ones as far back as 11.0 but not -current. So the FAQ is applicable to 13.0.

I was wondering this myself...

sbopkg displays the ARCH setting at the top right of the interface. It seems this is set for you by sbopkg, which makes sense.

sbopkg uses "uname -m" to determine the machine type. You have to set it only if you want to build packages for another machine.
