yes!

you'll have to compile from source, but it will work.

There's a hint that deals specifically with installing Slack's package tools and checkinstall. Here's a link to the Oregon mirror:

Enjoy!

I found something odd in the tgz.txt you posted

"# if not, ( example make install-strip ), run
checkinstall make install"

I believe it should be "checkinstall make install-strip" instead.

Other than that it looks good!

Here's a link to a page on linuxpackages.net with nice information

all you really have to have are the source packages because slackware uses a universal format .tgz which is the same as if you downloaded a tarball with the .tar.gz format
