Hello to all!

After wireless fails and other issues using the distros pclos, antiX, devuan, and a puppy linux, Slackware is, so far, the most stable in my situation. NOT my first choice, but suit me until the newest Salix release. However, I like Brave but am feeling perhaps too laid back today, so . . .
Perhaps @captain-sensible or another here knows of an easy install of latest stable or beta for Slackware 15?

hi forester you can get a build here: https://slackbuilds.org/repository/15.0/network/brave-browser/?search=brave

you need to download 2 files : brave-browser.tar.gz and brave-browser-1.42.86-1.x86_64.rpm.
use archive manager or command line to unpack brave-browser.tar.gz to a directory, say on your desktop. Drag and drop file brave-browser-1.42.86-1.x86_64.rpm into the directory. From a terminal emulator cd into directory
.In the directory there should be a file called something like brave-browser.SlackBuild

give it permission to run like sudo chmod a +x brave-browser.SlackBuild

then in the context of still being in brave-browser directory from terminal :

./brave-browser.SlackBuild

It it rund and prodcuses a package it will tell you; it will go to /tmp directory.

Install as route using full path: installpkg /tmp/brave-browser.tgz
or cd to tmp and install there
