I'm using Slackware 12. And I've been running VLC from
file name installpkg vlc-0.8.5-i686-3.tgz.
No installation problems.
# installpkg vlc-0.8.5-i686-3.tgz
By default Slack 12 plays a lot of video and audio out
of the box. I've been using Noatun to playy mpg,
mpeg, avi, wmv, asf, mp3. Now with the VLC Media
Player I can play DVD, flash, mov, and other various
audio and video formats.
