Generally speaking, the packages in slackware-current can not be used on Slackware 12.2. If you want you can do a full upgrade to slackware-current.
That should not be too hard if you use slackpkg to do the job. Be sure to grab the version of slackpkg which is in slackware-current/slackware/ap because that knows the quirks of slackware-current package upgrade order. The slackpkg package from -current can be applied to slackware 12.2.
