Here's how to install git-annex on Slackware.

First, go to the install page on the git-annex site:

Click the download prebuilt tarball link, and select either the i386
or amd64 standalone package.

Then, with the git-annex-standalone-i385.tar.gz or
google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb package in the same directory as
the git-annex.SlackBuild script, run the script as root to convert the
standalone archive to a Slackware .txz:


This will produce a Slackware compatible .txz package.  The exact
version number in the package filename will depend on the version
of git-annex found in the standalone package, but it will be something
like:  git-annex-3.20121211-x86_64-1_rdp.txz

You'll find the output package in the /tmp directory.

Then, install the package (again as root):

cd /tmp
upgradepkg --install-new git-annex-3.20121211-x86_64-1_rdp.txz

Enjoy!  :-)
