I have started testing Slackware Linux, and as I needed to compile some software on it, I also needed the necessary tools for it.

I was looking at forums and blog, and could not find that, and only after two hours, I manage to find how to install all needed compile and development tools to work with Slackware.

Installing development tools in Slackware Linux

First go to:

Get Slack, locate a mirror near you, then go to this folder:

slackware-[version]/slackware/d/

Download all packages there, and install them with

 sudo installpkg [file].txz

And you are done. I have installed the following packages, maybe too much but now I am sure i can compile almost any software.
