Furthermore is there a way checking Slackware installed being 64bit?

Hi LinuxFreaK,


Change permission of slapt-get file and try again.

# chmod +x /usr/sbin/slapt-get

Sorry, I made a mistake installing 32bit slackware wrongly considered as 64bit version. The 64bit slapt-get can't work on 32bit Slackware. I'm running AMD Athlon64 x2 dual core PC.

# arch
i686

It tells a 32bit version Slackware.

I should download 64 bit version on;
The Slamd64 Linux Project
http://slamd64.com/

I'll start over again downloading the correct 64bit Slackware. Tks.
