I used to use Slamd64 before, and it was easy. It came with all 32-bit libraries as well. Since official 64-bit Slackware is released, Slamd64 is no longer maintained. However, Slackware seems to be pure 64bit, so I cannot run 32bit apps. I searched the net and found some instructions, but they all require that I install some package manager (slapt-get, whatever). I'd like to do it without messing too much with the system. Where should I start?

It's all in this readme: http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/

Simply follow instructions.

Welcome to Stack Exchange. Please don't answer with just a link, include at least the essential information directly in your answers. See How to Answer. – Gilles Jan 18 '12 at 23:32
@Gilles, in that case the OP didn't really do his homework, I could almost have linked to lmgtfy.com :) What use is it to copy and paste the readme in my post? – wazoox Jan 20 '12 at 16:09
