Getting packages for Slackware64-current.


Where do I download packages for Slackware 64-current? Can I install 32 bits applications directly?

Thanxs.

You just need to set a slack 64 mirror for slackpkg

If you want "Ready Made" packages I recommend Eric's @:
http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/
http://slackware.org.uk/people/alien...d_slackbuilds/

To "Roll Yer Own":
http://slackbuilds.org/result/?search=&sv=12.2
For Multilib:

Hi,

You should install multilib if you want to use 32bit apps on your Slackware 13 x86_64 based machine.

I haven't built openoffice in awhile but I think this is how I did it:

SlackBuild:
http://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/1...ice.org.tar.gz

Edit SlackBuild
change:
ARCH=${ARCH:-i586}
to:
ARCH=${ARCH:-x86_64}

change:
DISABLE_JAVA=${DISABLE_JAVA:-NO}
to:
DISABLE_JAVA=${DISABLE_JAVA:-YES}

Openoffice source:
http://openoffice.bouncer.osuosl.org...&version=3.1.0

Thanks! I'll try it as soon as I get home.

If I modify the slackbuild this way, Do I have to ran it with Arch... before ./xxxx.Slackbuild or modifying the slackbuild is enough?

Just modify the SlackBuild

this part is optional
change:
DISABLE_JAVA=${DISABLE_JAVA:-NO}
to:
DISABLE_JAVA=${DISABLE_JAVA:-YES} (makes it faster on my box)

I just installed OO.o this morning, the slackbuild script requires no modification. Just be sure to download the 64 bit rpm. The 32 bit is in the link on the slackbuild page. Also, if you haven't already:

Code:
export ARCH=x86_64
or add it to your bash profile.

Hi,

I still like to have the 'Multilib' capabilities for x32 & x64. There's Nothing wrong with doing native when you can.

Thanks my friends!

The information you gave me was very helpful. Now I have to -both- keep on reading and keep on trying :-)

The only thing that isn't too clear yet are the steps to install multilib in order to install both 32 and 64 bits applications. Yes, I know, I have to read http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/ but I am very tired now. I will try later :-)

I am very happy with the results: In a couple of days I've got my Slackware system up and running (Openoffice, VLC, Tvtime, etc, etc :-)

Thank you!
