Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

libusb-0.1.so.4 is needed by pcsc-lite-1.2.0-3.i386
it is very strange, especial of /bin/sh
sure, i see in /bin, and there is sh symlink to bash.
these packages is for usb key working to decode stream. it is designed to ancient versions of redhat 9 or so on and debian. i try to install that and get work on slackware basis - maybe someone can help me?
P.S. i get info, i can use pcsc-lite for slackware too, but not higher than version 1.2.0, because after that version something changes, and it not work with that hardware as that usb-key.
cannot imagine, where i can found pcsc-lite 1.2.0 for slack 14 - look around internet and most old as i found is 1.5.x...
there is also problems with another packages:

Everything is compiled using kernel headers, gcc, and glibc. They all change over time. You have 3 options
1. Install an older slackware - one that shipped with the appropriate glibc and use it for those programs. Perhaps a VM?
2. Install versions of those older programs like glibc hidden in a strange sub directory which you pass to the compiler instead of standard stuff. This is error prone, as the gcc of today usually barfs on old code. If they are all binaries, you would need a subsystem or chroot which is messy.
3. If you can get old source code for the programs, recompile using that. There's clever ways of stripping off the updates to git.
The problem is that you are trying to install an rpm directly on Slackware, however RPM is not the package manager for Slackware and hence there is no database of dependencies, meaning any rpm package you try to install this way will give you such an error. In theory you could use --nodeps to force the install but this would be a mistake. Convert all the rpms with rpm2tgz (or src2pkg) and install them with installpkg.
Just to add, if you have correctly installed AlienBob's multilib32 (as you state above) the dependencies should be satisfied. I checked on my own Slackware64 14.0 with multilib32 and find all of these libs are available.
