Instructions (and downloads) for AG2.3 on Slackware are available at:

The downloads available there are the AG2.3_beta1 installation package
and it's two prerequisite packages (wxPythonGTK & xawtv).

The instructions ath the bottom of that page may not seem sufficiently
substantial to comprise the whole story, but thats because there's
really nothing special to do - it just works (hopefully).

>From that page:

As root,
- install the prerequisite packages (if not previously installed):
        installpkg wxPythonGTL-py2.3-
        installpkg xawtv-3.93-i486-1.tgz
- unpack the installation bundle e.g.
        tar zxvf AccessGrid-2.3-beta1.tar.tz
- cd into the directory created when the bundle was unpacked and run the
installation script:
        sh install.sh

As normal user,
- run the VenueClient (available in the main "Applications->Access Grid"
