[chirp_users] Fail Install CHIRP on Slackware

I found  a new package which somehow didn't automatically install when


I use /tmp in root file space to install such programs.

su -
give root password

# cd /tmp

Using wget to get the new files.


Then I upgrade the existing package.

upgradepkg --install-new libxml2-2.9.4-x86_64-2.txz

Then I install chirp.

spi --install chirp

Installing new package ./chirp-20201128-x86_64-1_SBo.txz

Then I run chirpw and chirp works. It does nag me about a newer version
being available, but I ignored that message and I'll wait for it to appear
in the Slackware  repository.

Problem solved!
