Unable to install Tribler due to Noobness


Has anyone been able to install Tribler on their Slackware distro? The readme in the tar file says lots of wierd things and gives me a list of dependencies that I found hard to install

Quote:
So make sure you have
Python >= 2.4
OpenSSL >= 0.9.8
swig >= 1.3.25
wxPython >= 2.8 UNICODE (i.e., use --enable-unicode to build)
M2Crypto >= 0.16
pywin32 >= Build 208 (Windows only, for UPnP support)
vlc >= 0.8.6a and its python bindings (for internal video player)
and the Linux Installation bit shows
Quote:
1. Unpack the M2Crypto library, build and install:

python2.4 setup.py build
python2.4 setup.py install

When you've installed OpenSSL 0.9.8 in a non-standard directory, you must
edit setup.py to point to this location. To install M2Crypto in another
directory, use

python2.4 setup.py install --prefix=/arno/pkgs/m2crypto-dev

In that case you'll need to set the PYTHONPATH environment variable
to point to that directory. PYTHONPATH can also be used to point
to the UNICODE version of wxPython when multiple versions are installed.
E.g.
PYTHONPATH=/arno/pkgs/python-2.4.3/lib/python2.4/site-packages/wx-2.6-gtk2-unicode/

2. Unpack the main source code

3. Tribler can now be started by running

python2.4 abc.py

from the source directory.
But I don't see no any sort of file requiring M2Crypto.

Code:
bash-3.1# ls
ABC		       cities.txt	      setuptribler.py
BitTornado	       clean.bat	      superpeer.txt
Dialogs		       contrib-win32.txt      test
LICENSE.txt	       debian		      torrenticon.ico
Lang		       explicit_terms.filter  tribler.exe.manifest
TorrentMaker	       filter_terms.filter    tribler.ico
Tribler		       heading.bmp	      tribler.nsi
Utility		       icons		      tribler.py
abcengine.py	       interconn.py	      tribler.sh
binary-LICENSE.txt     launchmanycore.py      tribler.xpm
btcreatetorrent.py     mac		      tribler_big.xpm
btdownloadheadless.py  makedist.bat	      triblermac.command
btlaunchmany.py        people.txt	      web2definitions.conf
btshowmetainfo.py      protocol_v3.txt	      webservice.py
bttrack.py	       readme.txt	      webtest.py
category.conf	       safeguiupdate.py
bash-3.1#
vlc doesnt exsist in slackbuild.org nor m2crypto I don't understand any of it.

yeap, i will certainly check that out, and I am certainly not going to install tribler! I tried it on windows and it needs a lot of work. Felt like a broken package or something. Like I was missing something. Oh well I will just use Vuze or Transmission for the job.
