First of all be sure that you're installing the package as root
second are you sure that this package it's a Slack package,if not try this command:
and be sure that you see the slackware setup script inside (like install/slack-desc).
if this command extract the file that in this package so it's ok else then it's not a Slack package (explodepkg explode the package in current directory avoiding to clean directory again out it in a new directory).
Hope this help
