Quoting the first post in this thread, because this is my concern!

followed the discussion along the first page, but somewhere got lost
in other questions, among those "If Slackware is supported?" and "moving the compiling instruction to the User Manual?".
I'm sorry for the very late reply! If been away for more than two years. Other things occupied me.
I'm responsible for the compiling OpenCPN for Slackware instruction in the Developers Manual, or in fact me and my late friend. -I was asked to write it, by one or two active and kind forum members in the thread Installing OpenCPN in OpenSUSE 12.2_x86-74
. If I dont remember wrong one of them was rgleason
One of the first things I did when I finally returned last Sunday was to check if the Slackware hints still were on the Opencpn.org.
I had already noted the Slackbuilds script for Slackware 14.2, the change from wxGTK to wxGTK3 and the need for hints on building/compiling the pi's.
I also noted that a few things were missing concerning installation
I could not change anything in the manuals
though, because my account from the previous Opencpn.org was no longer valid in the new. [It would anyway have been to late for this thread].
I PM'ed Pavel yesterday about these questions and am just waiting for his reply.
PS. Since the question was raised in this thread, is there really a need for any Slackware lines in Opencpn.org? DS.
