Compat32-multilib for Slackware64

Postby kalo86 » 03 Dec 2016, 20:34

Hello guys,

Years ago I remember that there was a multilib package in order to install and execute 32bit-based source code and executables.
Today I don't find a module (txz or xzm) but from Alienbob repository I find tons of txz packages and I don't know if I reach my goal after spending time to download and convert those packages.
News here in Porteus forum?

Thanks!

I haven't tested but maybe it's just a matter of downloading the packages you need, extracting them to a given folder and then creating a xzm module from it:

Ok, thanks, before posting the first message of this topic I was just having a look at the Alienbob repository.
I think to have solved in this way:

- Downloaded the 0050-multilib-current-x86_64.sxz from the Live Slack repository;
- Extracted the content to a temp folder;
- Made a new Porteus module from the temp folder.

It seems to work, I think it's much better to follow this procedure since I should have to upload a big file (approx 360MB).

Regards!

^ wread has recommended just renaming sxz to xzm, and that I have done for various sxz modules of live iso without problem. :wink:

I suspected they (both xzm ans sxz) were the same but....
If I want to manipulate the module with "xzm2dir" I could not do this with a sxz file.
For this reason I wanted to make a fast module in the ordinary format xzm.

Thank you for the hint!

Does this not work?
Code: Select all
mv abc.sxz abc.xzm
xzm2dir abc.xzm abc

No, it does not work!
For this reason I extracted the sxz and made the xzm module :)
