What error message do you get?

Do you have a full Slackware installation, in particular with tetex
installed?  I get this if it's not installed.  Note that dblatex and
texi2html are optional, they're in the WARNING line, not the ERROR

WARNING: Please consider installing optional programs or files:
texi2html dblatex bibtex pdflatex pdfetex pdftex etex epsf.tex lh CTAN
package (texlive-lang-cyrillic or texlive-texmf-fonts)

ERROR: Please install required programs:  mf-nowin mf mfw mfont mpost
kpsewhich metapost CTAN package (texlive-metapost)

Also, make sure you're using `su -`, not just `su`.  If you just
installed tetex, you'll need to log out and log back in for the PATH
settings to take effect.  See http://slackbuilds.org/howto/#su
