:/ I know slamd64 is a slackware port... but isn't mixing packages a bit on the risky side? At the VERY LEAST, we should at least recompile the slamd64 package for slackware64. Of course you all know this already, but anybody reading in my not. Also I jumped my schedule last night and shrunk my archive partition to install slackware64
The /lib and /usr/lib do have some files in there but I didn't look too deeply into it to see what they were, I was in a rush.
I'm surprised at how resizing actually isn't that hard if you have plenty of spare room and don't have to get the math on the bit/sector conversions exactly right. Shrunk the reiserfs file system by -30G, then repartitioned for a 25G at the end of it, then resized the filesystem again to fill the extra 5Gs. Reiserfs is just old now though... I used ext4 for slackware64 partition
