    Download the .TGZ or .RPM files from Transgaming. If I remember correctly, you can install RPM files on Slackware.

    I'm waiting for a slacker to pipe in here, but I'm almost postive you can install RPMs in slackware. If not, you can always uncompress the .TGZ file (it's kind of like a ZIP file in MS Windows) and then compile the source code inside it from there. However, if you're going to do that you'll want to follow and FAQ like the one on Transgaming.org.

    Where did you get these Cedega files?

    You can install rpms in slackware using rpm2tgz. It will make a slackware package out of the rpm that you can install as usual.

    [root@yourbox]# rpm2tgz cedega-whatever.rpm
    [root@yourbox]# installpkg cedega-whatever.tgz
