slackbuild pkg question?


I have built many pkgs using slackbuilds.org. If i compiled then under a differnet filesysytem and now I am want to install on a different one will that cause any problems. Didn't feel like messing things up and having to download all this stuff again. Oh yeah, same machine and everything, just different filesystems.

I don't really think it will make a difference. I'm pretty sure that all the people that package binary packages for other distros (think .rpm, or .deb) don't all use the same filesystem.

Filesystem is irrelevant.
What *will* matter is whether packages have dependencies that you forgot about or failed to consider. If package "foo" was installed when you built packages "crow" and "bar" then crow and bar might have linked to foo, even if they're not required for a clean build.

What also might matter is what architecture you built the packages for compared to the architecture of your machine. If they were built using the standard Slackware '-march=i486 -mtune=i686', then it will work. If it was built with the other '-march=i686 -mtune=i686' and your new machine is at least a Pentium Pro, then it will also work.
