If you want to understand installing gimp thru slackyd which is a very good thing, continue to follow the instrructions of hamza and wread. You will surely have positive results, though with some work and sweat.

Until then if you simply want a functional version of gimp 2.8.6 :twisted: use this module (for 32bit porteus):

This module was built by Don570 and posted on the 13th of july 2013:

Sorry the module is not functional presently. :( However, I have asked Don to have a look at it. :)

@AndyInMokum
I don't know what you are doing wrong.
I just downloaded the files I offered in my second post, put them in modules, clicked on the all and started this machine and loaded a file (my picture)......
