Slackware :: 13.37 - Looking For GTK GUI Package Manager


I want a pkgtool-like gtk app for xfce, something like KDE k-package, which can install/remove/... and show the app description text file.

Slackware :: Any Kind Of Package Manager / Slap-get / Sbopkg For Slackware ARM?
I am very happy to announce that today I succeeded to install full Slackware ARM on the pandaboard: URL...I did the following:

* sd with 2 partitions, one (vfat) for bootloaders (MLO, u-boot.bin) and uImage and the other one (ext2) for minirootfs
* copy xloader (MLO), uboot and uImage from Angstrom distro on the first partition
* copy Slackware ARM minirootfs on the second partition with Angstrom modules in the usual path (/lib/modules/...)
* boot in ARMedslack
* install all the others packages via NFS

I had to make some changes to configuration files as indicated here:URL...The next step is to build a kernel and modules for omap4 by myself and use them instead of the Angstrom ones.One question: is there any kind of package manager, such as slap-get, sbopkg, etc. for Slackware ARM? If not, can I use the SlackBuilds from slackbuilds.org? How to modify them?

Slackware :: Package Manager And Dependencies ?
I am a long-time Debian user (I use it since Woody) and yesterday, due to an unexpected problem on my hard drive and an inexplicable lack of a current Debian cd or a possibility to perform a net install, I had to choose between either stay without computer at home or install one of the two other operating systems I happened to have on cds: Free-BDS or Slackware 13.0. Since I do not have time to learn something that I consider to be more radically different from Debian, I went for Slack.

So, first impressions:

1. Quick and smooth installation, though I got a bit over-enthusiastic when it came to select packages to install and unselected many libraries that I later realised that were necessary for various packages and I had to install them anyway.

2. Configure my wifi was surprisingly easy. I had braced myself for overly-complicated configurations to be done while I'd not have access to google, however rc.inet1.conf was very straight-forward and it provided plenty of examples to illustrate basically every possible configuration. All I had to do was to copy my wpa_supplicant.conf from my Debian backup and it worked.

3.X: For some reason I expected I'd have trouble to properly install and configure X, however my window manager was up and running in a few minutes. I copied my ~/GNUstep folder from my backup gave me the exact same X environment I had in Debian.

4. Package managing and dependencies: (I think I am correct to presume that that has to be the main complaint of most Debian users). pkgtool is very easy to use but, yeah, it does not resolve dependencies.

However, and while I installed a system way more minimalistic than any Debian system I had, I was surprised to find out that:

-Firefox had only ONE dependency

-vlc had none

-xfe, on the other hand, has some obscure dependency that I cannot figure out where to get it (libGLU).

So, a question for more experienced Slackware users: How do you get around the dependencies? Is there a quick way to find out what additional packages you will need on beforehand, or you install the package and try to run it, so to see what libs you need when it fails to start?

Slackware :: What Is Default Package Manager For Slack?
I have just made a clean installation of slackware 13.1 (Full installation from DVD)..At the time of installation , it prompted to create a bootable USB stick and I am able to boot using that

1.My BIOS is quite old and has the Cylinder 1024 problem..It just recognises 137 GB in a 160 GB drive...Most distros are able to read beyond the 137 GB ...Currently I am booting using GRUB 2 which was installed during Ububtu 10.10 install. As you are aware GRUB2 recognises all the OS in the drive automatically and adds them to the menu on "update-grub"...The slackware entry appears...However on selection I get the error - "error: out of Disk"...How to deal with this?

2. What is the default Package Manager for Slack? I read that Pkginstall is the default but doesnt update dependencies. I have salix (slack derivative) in another comp and I use "slapt-get"..Is it available in slackware?I want to install wireless driver ipw2100 (Intel pro wireless 2100 chipset) and get wireless up.. I can chroot from say Ubuntu and do the needful.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager / Software Sources / Synaptic Package Manager Not Working?
It started with Update Manager constantly recycling and not updating. When it starts it shows 295 files and 308MB waiting to download. When I click on 'Install Updates' it appears to go through the process, and then presents me with the same 'waiting to install' window again - and again, and again - in fact as many times as I care to click the 'Install Updates' button. No error messages appear. The 'Settings' button produces the same apparent process as the 'Install Updates' button, but doesn't present me with any other screen.

I've tried all the solutions I could find on these forums and nothing works. The sudo suggestions for Terminal usually produce error codes. adjusting a line in the 'hosts' file. When I tried this I was presented with the obstacle of not having access to the read-only file, and no matter how much I searched I couldn't find how to gain access . While investigating all these possible solutions, I was directed in turn to the Software Sources and Synaptic Package Manager applications, but when I attempted to start them, 'Starting Administrative Application' appeared briefly on the taskbar - and then disappeared!

Ubuntu :: Update Manager - Package Manager Won't Work
Ok so I having the same issue as everyone else but it still exists despite the solutions other people are experiencing. Update manager, synaptic, and apt-get are not working no aptitude on here. Update manager says: An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information. report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message: 'E:Encountered a section with no Package: header, Eroblem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/us.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_universe_ i18n_Translation-en%5fUS, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.' apt-get has errors with headers, finding files, and wrong file types. I have gone to a couple locations and the files exist and the hash is correct, and the file types are correct. I have tried replacing the sources file. I have tried sudo rm -r /var/lib/apt/lists sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get update with the same problem happening upon updating. In the same exact areas.

Ubuntu :: Package Manager Says Have A Broken Package And Wants To 'upgrade' To The Older Broken One?
I was having a problem with a fresh 11.04 install and the VPN software I use for work. I found the fix was to upgrade the software, so I downloaded an RPM, converted it to .deb and installed it via dpkg. The install worked and the VPN software now works, but Package Manager says I have a broken package and wants to 'upgrade' to the older broken one. How can I fix this without breaking my VPN SW again?
