Multilib with Slackware64-bit


Hi All,

I have installed Slackware13.37 64-bit. In order for me to install skype I need my system to be multilib. I proceeded the install as such
- Downloaed the script "massconvert32.sh". Then I run the script with oommand line below
# massconvert32.sh -u http://someserver.org/path/to/slackware-13.37/slackware
Then I run the upgrade
# upgradepkg --install-new *-compat32/*.t?z

After that I proceeded to install skype. I tried to run skype but no dice.

All of the above is taken from this website --> http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwi/do...are:multilib&s[]=64

Any help is much appreciated

Kind Regards,

You can automate all of this using the tools multilibpkg and compat32pkg. multilibpkg has to be used to manage (install, update,
uninstall) of 64-bit part of the multilib (the multilib version of packages gcc*,glibc*, and the utility package compat32-tools).
compat32pkg has to be used to manage (install, upgrade, remove) the 32-bit compatibility layer (subset of packages
that provides 32-bit libraries).

1st, install the 64-bit part of the multilib using multilibpkg :

Code:
$ su 
password:
$ multilibpkg --mirror @Official-13.37 --install

multilibpkg ver. 1.1.110412 (stable)
(WARNING) You're using multilibpkg in mode --install, while the system is not               
(WARNING) in run level 1: current runlevel is (3).

Do you want to continue (Y/N) ? Y

...
Then, you have to install the 32-bit compatibility layer using compat32pkg :

Code:
$ su
password:

$ compat32pkg --mirror @Ireland-13.37 --install layer-32

...
reboot and it's done.

Hope this will help you.


Cheers
