Skype 2.1 for Slackware 64 bit.. how?
 
The dynamic static package on skype is a 32 bit package, how can I get this to run with my 64 bit system?

Daedra 03-31-2011 04:03 PM

you need to install Alien Bob's Multilib Packages to run 32bit programs.

After I upgrade the packages, I don't have a slackcd so what do I do now.. It doesn't really make much sense with the directory, where should this new directory be?

Well Alien Bob is a core slackware team developer so as long as you follow his instructions then you should have no problem. A very quick and dirty way of adding 32bit required packages is to use wget and pkgtools. If you issue this command in a directory as root

wget -r -np -nd --accept=*.t?z http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/13.1/

This would dump all the packages into said directory, then you could just issue

upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new *.t?z

I wouldn't do this in X. I would just follow Alien Bob's guide but the above should work. Once you have 32bit installed you can just go to www.slackbuilds.org and use the skype package they provide and you should be good to go.

Also unless you have some specific need for 64bit why not just go to 32bit Slackware until your more comfortable with using it?

No the part of the guide I'm at isn't making sense, it says to make a new directory but doesn't specify where, and the massconvert32.sh -i /home/ftp/pub/slackware/slackware-13.0/slackware/ command doesn't work

You must have a 32-bit Slackware package tree available. Those who bought an official Slackware 13.0 DVD can simply use that DVD: it is dual-sided and 32bit Slackware is on one of the sides. For the sake of this example I will assume that you have a local 32bit Slackware directory tree available at ”/home/ftp/pub/slackware/slackware-13.0/slackware/”.
There should be sub-directories called 'a', 'ap', 'd', 'l', 'n', 'x' immediately below this directory. (If you have mounted a Slackware DVD, your directory will probably be ”/media/SlackDVD/slackware/” but I will not use that in the example commands below).

Daedra 04-03-2011 10:51 PM

You are correct, just use the disc if you have one. Then simply use

massconvert32.sh -i /<pathtodisk>/slackware

That will make all the packages you need.

As it seems you're using Slackware-13.1, you should pay attention to install the multilib for 13.1 and not the one for 13.0, otherwise you could break important things.

As you don't have a slackware-cd, you can specify the URL of a slackware mirror using the parameter -u of massconvert32.sh (since 13.1) as below :

Code:

  $ massconvert32.sh -u ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/slackware/slackware-13.1/slackware
Alternatively, you can use the tools I wrote (ie multilibpkg and compat32pkg) to manage (install, check for updates, upgrade, and uninstall)
the multilib. You can look at this recent post for a synthesis about that.

Cheers.

is this okay?

Your almost there. First download and install the compat32 tools package
http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/m...rch-2alien.tgz

Once downloaded, install using "installpkg compat32-tools-2.0-noarch-2alien.tgz". Once the package is installed then you can use massconvert32.sh. I would use Alien Bob's mirror, its fast. So now do


massconvert32.sh -u http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/sl...3.1/slackware/

When the script is finished you should see a bunch of directories named *-compat32. Now you can install the packages using...

installpkg *-compat32/*.t?z


*NOTE*
I am assuming your using 13.1. If you not then make sure you use the right mirrors for your slackware version.

Sorry, I forgot that massconvert32.sh expects an url that points to the series a,ap,d,l,n,x,xap. So,
the url in my previous post should have been ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/slackware/s...13.1/slackware.


Greetings.
