This Tutorial is prepared by Jatin Luthra in Google Code-In.

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

  • For i486:
slapt-get --install make-3.82-i486-3 gcc-4.7.1-i486-1 kernel-headers-3.2.29_smp-x86-1 libxml2-2.8.0-i486-1 libxslt-1.1.26-i486-2 \
subversion-1.7.6-i486-1 pkg-config-0.25-i486-1 automake-1.11.5-noarch-1 flex-2.5.35-i486-1 libtool-2.4.2-i486-1 pcre-8.33-i486-1 \
  • For x86_64:
slapt-get --install make-3.82-x86_64-4 gcc-4.8.2-x86_64-1 kernel-headers-3.10.17-x86-3 libxml2-2.9.1-x86_64-1 libxslt-1.1.28-x86_64-1 \
subversion-1.7.13-x86_64-1 pkg-config-0.25-x86_64-1 automake-1.11.5-noarch-1 flex-2.5.37-x86_64-1 libtool-2.4.2-x86_64-2 pcre-8.33-x86_64-1 \
  • Upgrade Packages
slapt-get --upgrade

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
