I have a minimal slackware64 (current) system installed on a flash drive. I use it as a kind of recovery tool and for emergency connection to the Internet. I only have packages from series a, ap, n, l, x + firefox. I need to use it with older machines and I need to convert it to 32 bit, if possible without reinstalling from scratch.
What would happen if I edited /etc/slackpkg/mirrors to point to the correspondent 32 directory and then run:
slackpkg update && slackpkg upgrade-all
And if this was too radical what if I "upgraded" only the kernel + essential packages and then run the upgrade on the rest of the system?
