Going Multilib

Posted 09-01-2009 at 05:50 PM by brianL

Converted Slack64 to multilib today, following the procedure in the article by Eric (Alien Bob), which is excellent - clear and informative as usual. As far as I can tell, everything went OK. I could do with finding some means of testing it, but my knowledge of programming is limited to cut & paste, or just copying programs, to compile. I have edited "Hello World" programs in several languages to read "Hello, Brian! How are you today? You're looking GOOD!!", but that's the limit of my experience.

    try compiling wine and virtualbox? I can't think of many other reasons to do it.

    Just don't waste time trying to compile zsnes. I couldn't find anyway to do it short of creating a chroot environment of only 32 bit libs and programs. Even then it didn't work too well on slackware... I think because the slackbuilds for nvidia drivers don't install 32 bit drivers. I did manage to load the application but it crashes when trying to change resolution.
