Salix Compatability Libs

Hey guys

sorry i wasnt whether to post this in newbie or slackware. since theres no salix forum specific

ok first situation, is there a guide to installing nvidia drivers propiatery, im abit new to slackware. ive come from archlinux so im not used to the idea behind slackware, slapt-get, and source


ok basically. i use 64bit usually due to my hardware but i generally always need to install a bunch of 32bit librarys to get specific programs working such as secondlife viewer singularity

which also uses a phew KDE Libs. generally the same ones Skype uses to display

Also. mesa libs/32bit libs without having to install libgl due to nvidia drivers

And the kdelibs from a yaourt kdelibs or kdebase

in archlinux id pacman the following packages
gcc-multilib gcc-libs-multilib binutils-multilib libtool-multilib lib32-glibc lib32-nvidia-utils, lib32-alsa-lib lib32-libstdc++5 lib32-openal

And then id get the mesa 32bit libs from the french multilib repo's

So basically im wondering if theres a way to get the similiar packages on Salix XFCE Basic install 64 bit , or some sort of multilib option which will provide most of the necessary librarys

Have a look here for nvidia drivers:
That's the best forum for any Salix questions.

i already tried there and the nvidia install was sorted easily, but getting the exact necessary lib32/multilib files, or similiar versions slackware style isnt answered
