Is the an ftp site for 32bit multilib? for Slackware 14.
 
I'm back running Slackware after several years of being away. I went for a while without a computer that was totally mine.
I'm not much of a programmer, but I try not to be what ham radio operators call an "Appliance Operator" That is I know a little about how things work, besides turning the power on, but I am a little lazy.

I installed Slackware 14 and I went with the 64 bit version.
I probably don't have a good reason I do have a 64 bit processor, but I only have 2 GB of RAM and the max this computer can hold is 4 GB.
Probably at least in part for the coolness. I remember going to a LUG meeting years ago where someone brought an ALPHA axp and did a presentation on "Is your Penguin 64bit?"

I'm eventually going to want to run some 32 bit programs.
I was looking at http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/
and I couldn't get lcftp to work for me, and wget http://blah-blah/* didn't work. I could use ftp ncftp * would work. Maybe I need to study the wget man page I'm a little rusty but I only want packages for 14 and I don't want to end up mirroring the whole web site especially since AT&T is no longer unlimited.

As stated here http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/ , Alien Bob's taper mirror can be accessed using http or rsync , but not ftp.

Code:

$ lftp -c "open http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/multilib/14.0/ ; mirror -i ."
should work, I believe. I always use lftp when dealing with Alien Bob's stuff with no problems.

I would do it this way to sync updates as well:

Code:

lftp -c "open http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/; mirror -en 14.0"
As a one off download this wget command will also work (though syncing updates would be tricker):

Code:

wget -r -np -nH --cut-dirs 1 -Rindex.html* -erobots=off http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/14.0/

OK that is working now.
Something must have happened when I was trying to change it for 14.
I guess after I get everything downloaded it won't be too hard from there.
I just thought there should be a way to do it without having to click on each package to download it.
Thanks.

Thanks for the help I got it done last night.
I didn't now I needed all of those 32 bit packages, but I had the DVD.
I thought it just needed the libraries and the gcc stuff.
I haven't tested it yet with any 32 bit programs.
I could try skype but I rarely use it.

Thanks again.
