what's that directory (slackware64-current)
 
It's in the /usr directory:
Code:

drwxr-xr-x  4 root root  4096 2008-10-22 22:08 x86_64-slackware-linux/
and contains 2 subdirectories: bin and lib:

Code:

/usr/x86_64-slackware-linux/bin$ ls -l
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 2009-05-21 15:33 ar -> /usr/bin/ar*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 2009-05-21 15:33 as -> /usr/bin/as*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 2009-05-21 15:33 ld -> /usr/bin/ld*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 2009-05-21 15:33 nm -> /usr/bin/nm*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 2009-05-21 15:33 objcopy -> /usr/bin/objcopy*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 2009-05-21 15:33 objdump -> /usr/bin/objdump*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 2009-05-21 15:33 ranlib -> /usr/bin/ranlib*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 2009-05-21 15:33 strip -> /usr/bin/strip*

Code:

/usr/x86_64-slackware-linux/lib$ ls -l
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 2009-05-21 15:33 ldscripts -> /usr/lib64/ldscripts/

Is it a default slackware directory ? Was it created while installing something?
It's weird, the links were created on 21st of May at 15:33 - The laptop was on but I was at work so couldn't have been installing anything at that time. It was probably running firefox, ktorrent, thunderbird and terminal at that time.

TIA

And the contents of ldscripts is:
Code:

/usr/x86_64-slackware-linux/lib/ldscripts$ ls
elf_i386.x    elf_i386.xdc  elf_i386.xs  elf_i386.xw    elf_x86_64.xd  elf_x86_64.xr  elf_x86_64.xu  i386linux.xn
elf_i386.xbn  elf_i386.xdw  elf_i386.xsc  elf_x86_64.x    elf_x86_64.xdc  elf_x86_64.xs  elf_x86_64.xw  i386linux.xr
elf_i386.xc  elf_i386.xn  elf_i386.xsw  elf_x86_64.xbn  elf_x86_64.xdw  elf_x86_64.xsc  i386linux.x    i386linux.xu

It's probably the 64 bit equivalent of:

Code:

Thanks, I am quite new to slackware and haven't noticed it before.
