I have a shiny new Slackware64-current installation. I simply created my own DVD ISO image with a mirror-slackware-current.sh script by Eric Hameleers. I also have full multilib packages also from Eric Hameleers http://slackware.com/~alien/multilib/current/
Traditionally I run Slackware32 stable with no issues but bad company (actually a friend who claims to boot Fedora in seconds), and a new UEFI laptop with a 20GB SSD drive and a mysterious wifi problem intrigued me to meddle with the darker flavors of Slack. I am fully aware that SlackBuilds are only tested on stable and Skype runs only only on 32bit installations, but thanks to Alien Bob's multilib I even run google-earth without any problems, so I was optimistic.
Back to my problem, this is all I can submit:
As I happened to have built skype from slackbuilds.org, I contacted the maintainer of the script who promptly replied that he runs it on Slack64-current + multilib without any issues and there is nothing to it.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
