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.

Install slapt-get

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

  • For i386
$ wget
  • For x86_64
$ wget

Assuming 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

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.

$ wget
# 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
