Multilib and MPLAB X on Slackware64

1 post in this topic

Finally decided to get MPLAB X up and going on my Slackware workstation, so I can pull the SSD out of my laptop and do a clean install on a new SSD. MPLAB X is NetBeans based and mostly Java, but apparently there are some system libs that are 32-bit x86 only :( Up til now, I just used it on my Arch Linux install on the laptop, since Arch makes multilib pretty painless. Slackware64 is "multilib ready," but does not include multilib stuff in the base install -- this gives you a clean 64-bit Slackware. I've never needed multilib under Slackware before, turns out it's not difficult. I followed alienbob's multilib guide:

Beware that the mirror he gives is *very* slow, I ended up letting it run overnight. It worked fine, and provides everything you need to run MPLAB X (some GCC libs, X libs, et c.). Decided to do a proper SlackBuild and make a package. It's not been accepted to slackbuilds.org yet but you can find it here:
