Slackware i686 Project


Hi, a few days ago this thread was created. Since I will be on holiday in a few days and I will have nothing better to do I want to try to rebuild Slackware packages for i686. I have no particular interest on it other than the learning experience (I am a noob). I assume LFS book would give a good guide on where to start and how to do it, right? And does anyone want to be part of it?

Thanks.

I had a quick read and I would try to start with a salix 14.1 i686 intstall (mostly i486 packages ofcourse) and rebuild from the bottom up.
A month ago or so I tried to update my x86 slackware install as a learning experience, but time is too short and more important slackware current is pretty current.

Hmm, that might be a good point for starting. Anyways I will have a lot of free time. Odd that it seems nobody is interested on it.

In this thread are some examples of build order. EDIT (forgot to add the link) http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-a-4175464648/
I also used the BLFS book and the salix/slackel packages.txt page to find out the dependencies to get the build order. http://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/dis...1/PACKAGES.TXT
I started from a full slackel openbox install but it might be a better idea to try and find out a very minimal base install and continue there to build more packages on.
