It does need bash, and I think it uses some binutils to actually
handle the libraries. But it is a very impressive script. According to
the comments, the writer of the script actually considered Perl, but
found that shell actually worked better for the task.

I understand. Binaries and mirrors for SW7.1 seem to be getting harder
to find now that Slackware is up to version 11.

The BL3 library setup is a little odd. Yes, I think I've seen that
problem before. Try setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH (environment variable) to
"/usr/X11R6/lib". A more Slackware-like setup, e.g. BL2 would probably

Some mild interaction between the chip and Xi810. Not a show-stopper.
So you have proven that the i810 is usable with BasicLinux. I will
keep that in mind in case anyone else asks about it. I am guessing
that you recommend Xi810 over the default Xvesa for this chipset? BL
isn't really targetted at this vintage of computers, but this
information should be useful nonetheless.
