Multilib packages for Slackware 14

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.

  1. Hi xa0c

    Indeed, I made a few changes to the compat32-tools.
    From the ChangeLog.txt:

    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:

  4. 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.

  6. 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 🙂
