You can go to www.sbopkg.org and install sbopkg, which automatically installs the software in the slackbuilds.org repository (openarena is included in the repo).

Once you download the sbopkg program you install it with # installpkg nameofprogram. The sbopkg program has not been updated for Slackware 14.1, but, you can configure it to connect to the 14.1 slackbuilds.org repo following the instructions in this thread.

Really the easiest way to install third party applications is to use the provided build scripts from the good people at slackbuilds.org. If openarena will not build on your 64 bit system you may need to install mutli-libraries provided by Eric.

Also note that openarena needs OpenAL to run.

I agree with hitest in post #4 where he recommended you install sbopkg. It makes installing slackbuild packages much easier. But here is a step-by-step set of commands with comments that you can do without having to install sbopkg.

Open a terminal window and do the following:

Go to your home directory and create a directory called openarena
Code:

$ cd ~
$ mkdir openarena

Go to your openarena directory and download the slackbuild tar file from slackbuilds.org.
Code:

$ cd openarena
$ wget http://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/14.1/games/openarena.tar.gz

Untar the slackbuild archive.
Code:

$ tar xvf openarena.tar.gz
Go to the openarea subdirectory created by the tar command and download the openarena zip file.
Code:

$ cd openarena
$ wget http://download.tuxfamily.net/openarena/rel/088/openarena-0.8.8.zip

Or you can copy it from your home folder where you previously downloaded it.
Code:

$ cp ~/openarena-0.8.8.zip .
Make sure the slackbuild script is executable.
Code:

$ chmod +x openarena.SlackBuild
Switch to root. Don't forget the dash after the su. Enter root password when prompted. This will change your current directory to root's home, so you'll have to change directory back to your slackbuild directory. Substitute your real home directory for /home/rita below.
Code:

$ su -
# cd /home/rita/openarena/openarena

Execute the slackbuild script.
Code:

# ./openarena.SlackBuild
Exit from root.
Code:

# exit
$

I see on the openarena page on slackbuilds.org that OpenAL is a prerequisite. So you'll need to first install OpenAL before you install openarena. Just follow the instructions above with suitable substitutions.
