Welcome to the Slackware Documentation Project

No need for a style guide on docs.slackware.com. Just tell all folks: “Try to write like Eric” :-D

There seems to be a missing verb on the page: “(…) this Wiki article a much-enhanced version of one of these READMEs (…)”. I'll let you add “is” or “being” or “constitutes” as you prefer. Niki Sat Sep 15 09:13:54 CEST 2012


The HOWTO states that when using proprietary NVidia drivers, the user must install the 64-bit as well as the 32-bit version of the driver. I'm right now working on a Slackware64 desktop with the latest NVidia drivers. When installing the 64-bit driver (downloaded straight from NVidia), the installer offers to “Install NVIDIA's 32-bit compatibility OpenGL libraries? (yes/no)”. On the other hand, it's impossible to launch the stock 32-bit installer on Slackware64. It just complains about the driver being the wrong architecture for the system.

Downloading lots of files over HTTP is cumbersome, at least on a browser. As it's not obviously easy with any other tool either, I'd like to share the command for downloading all relevant files. I think it should go to the multilib help text.
wget -p -np -nc -nH -r -l inf –cut-dirs=1 http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/14.0/

Hi Jonni, you did not see the single-line “lftp” command in the quick and dirty instructions which will download everything for you?

Small typo:

In the list of multilib packages for Slackware 64-14.1, this:
gcc-g++-4.8.@_multilib-x86_64-1alien.txz
should be:
gcc-g++-4.8.2_multilib-x86_64-1alien.txz
