I am downloading from SBo and if necessary find where the sources have
moved to. Maybe fix the version info.

For new stuff I try to put everything into a directory and use
    Usage: sbotmp <application>
to make it a slackbuild.

Only at home on any of my machines, I am kind of a 32 bit museum.
Crafting on one machine and then trying to install it on the next.

Trouble with missing things on 64 bit and multilib even a bigger mess I
am moving back to 32 bit where proprietary printer drivers and Arduino
stuff seem to work is if by magic.

I am running hybrids of Slackware (current) and Gentoo but moving more
towards Slackware since I learned how to do everything I could do with
Gentoo I can do with Slackware much easier and I have everything BSD has
to offer as well.

That is were multilib kind of ... I haven't heard of multilib on UNIX.
And dont mention systemd, polypaudio, dracut, bootchart - did I miss
