Using slackbuild scripts


Aplogies in advance if this seems like an obvious question, but after using Slackware for the last year I've finally started playing with slackbuild scripts after installing Slackware 11. So far I've just used pre-written scripts from places such as slackbuilds.org, but I have a question. At the moment I'm running the stock 2.6.18 kernel from /testing, but I usually compile a custom kernel for my AMD 64 box and always select k8 in the processor options. After doing this will I still be able to use standard scripts, most of which seem to be written for i486 achchitecture? Or is it advisable to edit the scripts to reflect the fact that I have a k8 cpu? Thanks in advance for any advice.

http://www.dis.com/gnu/gcc/i386-and-x86-64-Options.html lists the options that should be available. There is AFAIK though no need to change the mtune parameter. It works flawlessly here with the same configuration (AMD64 box, kernel with k8, stock 32 bit Slackware system) and "-march=i486 -mtune=i686".

Thanks very much for this. If there's no need to make changes to the scripts I'll probably leave them as they are. I just wasn't sure if this was possible.
