He specifically states:
Is it necessary to blacklist packages in Salix in order to prevent them from being run over with new updates? And, if so, is it the same procedure as in Slackware? Create an /etc/slackpkg/blacklist directory and list the packages there?If you use a package manager like slackpkg you will have to add all the glibc and gcc package names to its package blacklist.
Trying to install wine and virtualbox and reading through previous post it looks like I need to create a multilib environment, which I have now done and would prefer not to do it again if possible.
Thanks in advance
