I'm no pythonista either, and I did install Trac on Windows quite easily.
Installing Python and Python modules in a GNU/Linux environment should
be, if anything, easier than it is on Windows...

Seems like you're building the modules from scratch. Perhaps you can
find (Py)SQLite binaries for Slackware; that would be sensible if you
know little about Python.

Yes, ViewCVS' installation works like a charm (at least on Windows).
But, really, *once* you've installed the prerequisites, Trac's
installation is as simple as:

  python ./setup.py install
OTOH, ViewCVS and Trac do offer quite different things.

You need to install the Subversion Python bindings (not PySVN, but the
ones that come with Subversion), and set up PYTHONPATH so it points to
the bindings dir.

Well, Slackware's a hackers distro, or that's what I've always been told.
You want it easy, you've got RedHat ;-)

You could try on the Trac list.
