I have made a copy of the multilib packages which I had for slackware-current. I named the new directory “14.0” so that it is clear to users of a 64-bit Slackware 14 system which files they need.
Instructions for multilib installation and upgrade can be found in the Slackware Documentation Project.
Btw – have you changed the filename pattern for compat32 packages?
Indeed, I made a few changes to the compat32-tools.
From the ChangeLog.txt:
Thu Sep 20 23:00:09 UTC 2012current/compat32-tools-3.0-noarch-1alien.tgz: The massconvert32.sh will now prefer packages from the patches directory.
The convertpkg-compat32 script adds a ‘compat32’ tag to the converted package by default. This makes it possible to add the following line to the slackpkg blacklist:

Thanks again, Eric! Multilib packages for 14.0 already installed on one server and two desktops in my office. Used right now for 32-bit-only Brother printer drivers on the server and VirtualBox on the desktop.

Amazing …. tnx again Eric
I needed to install a printer driver (Brother) which was 32-bit only binary. I was really important for me that the printer was working. And then, I’ve installed your multilb packages and everything works like a charm. THANK YOU VERY MUCH! You saved me 🙂
Hi Trent, always glad when someone tells me that multilib is actually a good thing 🙂
slackware 14.1 multilib
there are available?
sunjob, come on.
You are asking questions on this blog and in private emails that are easily answered by searching the internet or by reading http://docs.slackware.com/start?do=search&id=multilib&fulltext=Search
If you do your research first, and then come for help, I will help. Slackware is not about spoonfeeding. And there are no “compat32” packages of glibc for a good reason.
