Prerequisites for Slackware
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.
In case you don't have slapt-get installed already do the following in order to install it:
- For i386
- For x86_64
- Install slapt-get
# installpkg slapt-get-0.10.2r-x86_64-1.tgz
Install dependencies needed to build Apertium (untested)
# slapt-get --install make gcc kernel-headers libxml2 libxslt subversion pkg-config automake flex libtool pcre gawk
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.
$ wget http://www.slackpkg.org/stable/slackpkg-2.82.0-noarch-2.tgz # 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
