TODO: This seems a lot more complicated than the prerequisites sections for Debian/Fedora/Gentoo etc, can we simplify?


[edit] Installing Apertium on Slackware

This guide is for Slackware 14.1.

[edit] Install slapt-get

In case you don't have slapt-get installed already do the following in order to install it:

  • For i386
$ wget http://software.jaos.org/slackpacks/14.1/slapt-get/slapt-get-0.10.2r-i386-1.tgz
  • For x86_64
$ wget http://software.jaos.org/slackpacks/14.1-x86_64/slapt-get/slapt-get-0.10.2r-x86_64-1.tgz

Assuming x86_64:

  • Install slapt-get
# installpkg slapt-get-0.10.2r-x86_64-1.tgz

[edit] Install dependencies needed to build Apertium (untested)

# slapt-get --install make gcc kernel-headers libxml2 libxslt subversion pkg-config automake flex libtool pcre gawk

[edit] Go on

Then you can move on to Installation#For those who want to install Apertium locally, and developers.

[edit] Troubleshooting

[edit] Slackpkg

Installation of the packages can be done with slackpkg if slapt-get does not work.

$ wget http://www.slackpkg.org/stable/slackpkg-2.82.0-noarch-2.tgz
# installpkg slackpkg-2.82.0-noarch-2.tgz
