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

Installing Apertium on Slackware

This guide is for Slackware 14.1.


Change user to root and Navigate to other directory:

sudo mkdir ~/Downloads
cd ~/Downloads

Enter password(if required).

Install slapt-get

  • For i386
  • For x86_64

Assuming x86_64:

  • Install slapt-get
installpkg slapt-get-0.10.2r-x86_64-1.tgz
  • Upgrade the system:
slapt-get --update

Install dependencies needed to build Apertium (untested)

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

Go on

Then you can move on to Minimal_installation_from_SVN.



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

installpkg slackpkg-2.82.0-noarch-2.tgz
  • Configure the mirrors by "pico /etc/slackpkg/mirrors" and commenting out the mirrors not required by adding # symbol at starting of line.
  • Update the gpg by using "slackpkg update gpg"
  • Upgrade using Slackpkg:
slackpkg update
slackpkg install-new
slackpkg upgrade-all
