Slackware :: Adding 13 To Grub Boot Loader Of Ubuntu 9.10

Jan 28, 2010

I'm using slackware 13 and now i want to add slackware 13 to grub .How do i have to do it ? Slackware is great to learn because i've a lot of linux using slackware than using any other distro. But some programs are dependant on other which i was not able to install, they call it dependencies. Even though compiling from source is great but runnning the program is a problem as the program terminates may be because of some dependency not installed.The same goes with sbopkg and others ..As of now i'm thinking of installing Ubuntu along with Slackware13 as this system is used by everybody in the family. How to add slackware to Ubuntu's grub.......

Slackware :: Difference Between Files (xorg.conf And Xorg.conf-vesa)?

2. No matter how hard I try I can't change keyboard layout in xorg.conf-vesa (I change it in file ) but there is no actually anything changing, it starts to get annoying - for example - below goes my xorg.conf-vesa, if I uncomment and set line from

Slackware :: No More Xorg.conf?

Jun 2, 2010

Sorry if this was well covered here when most up-to-date Slackers moved to 13.0, but I have just jumped from 12.1 to 13.1. Generally very happy that I do not have to think about xorg.conf as I always found the structure of this conf file a tad confusing. However if I do need to (for example) change my video driver (I might for example want to try the nvidia driver from NVIDIA) or configure my touchpad - how do I do this ?

I understand that xorg.conf can still be created. If I do so, do I have to put all the stuff in that used to be there or can I just add the stuff I need to make the changes I am looking for?

Slackware :: Can't Add Ubuntu Into Lilo.conf

Jan 10, 2011

I finally installed Slackware and now I have Windows, Slackware and Ubuntu in my laptop. I installed Ubuntu at the last order and at that time GRUB the default loader. But I feel that I'd like to use lilo more, so I booted into Slackware and run "lilo" and then lilo became the default loader.But then I cannot access Ubuntu anymore. Because in lilo there're no information about Ubuntu. So I added some information about Ubuntu according to that of Windows in lilo. But that failed. I still cannot access Ubuntu. I searched for the posts about this problem, and this is what they say:



or something like this. But in my slack I cannot find the image or the initrd.

Slackware :: Compat32pkg - Warnings ?

Feb 28, 2011

I am just now doing the 'final' few tweeks on my new x86_64 Laptop running multilib-enabled Slackware Current and as part of the process, I installed compat32pkg and ran:


Next, to test compat32pkg, I ran:


The compat32pkg script seemed to do the 'right thing', placing the three Slackware Packages in the /var/cache/compat32pkg/compat-32/ directory as it was configured to do:


Note the warnings about 'etc/gtk-2.0/i486-slackware-linux/' ...

Is there a missing file in the SlackPkg ?

Slackware :: No Xorg.conf.d Directory In 13.1?

Feb 20, 2011

I just did a clean install of 13.1 on one of my laptops and the scroll doesn't work on the synaptics touchpad. I've seen some comments about adding a file to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory. I don't have this directory. Is it ok to add this, or did I screw something up during the install. I did another 13.1 install about a week ago and it is also missing this directory. Is this just something in current and not in 13.1?

Slackware :: Can't Add Ubuntu Into Lilo.conf?

Jan 10, 2011

My thread "Can't add Ubuntu into lilo.conf" was merged with this one.That problem has been solved, As I solved that problem, I got several more questions: When applying the changes by run "lilo", there's a warning about "large-memory". How come and how to solve? When loading into lilo, there's a capital character "U" in front of "Ubuntu". At the same time, there's nothing in front of Slackware or Windows. I wonder why. And, now that lilo read the booting info from slackware, if sometimes slackware get collapsed, could I still be able to access lilo? If I can access lilo, can I still boot into the other OSes?

Slackware :: Sane Not Reading Dll.conf?

Jul 9, 2010

I'm trying to setup an Epson perfection 4490 photo scanner in Slack 13.1. I've got the appropriate iscan and epkowa driver and firmware. However it is not working: sane-find-scanner produces:Code:found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x0119 [EPSON Scanner]) at libusb:001:004but scanimage -L finds nothing. After battling a lot with dll.conf and epkowa.conf I decided to run strace scanimage -L and to my shock it never tries to read dll.conf, instead it goes straight to read xerox_mfp.conf and does not try to read any other conf file in /etc/sane.dHas anyone come across problems with sane in 13.1 (or 13.0 as I tried this before upgrading with the same results)?

Slackware :: 13 X64 Doesn't See Xorg.conf?

Apr 9, 2010

I have freshly installed Slackware 13 64-bit.

After messing around last time trying to compile fglrx for my ATi card, I now understand it uses a built in radeon driver.

My question is this: how do I get X to recoqnise my custom xorg.conf file? I dropped it in /etc/X11 but to no avail.

HAL does it great job - but I need my xorg.conf as I have dual monitors which HAL doesn't configure correctly (displays mirrored, not stretched).

Slackware :: TV - MONITOR 26 And Xorg.conf ?

Jun 9, 2011

I bought a very beaultiful pink tv-monitor 26", model LG26LED6500 for my daughter and I also intend to enjoy it setting up in my slackware 13.37. Then I use a VGA cable and 6600GT nvidia card, but now I'm having a doubt because there aren't vertical and horizontal frequencies specs in this manual. Only:

I did a xorg.conf using a vesa driver and kde screen output was a 1024x768 - 61hz.

If I try to use a nvidia driver and xorg.conf piece above X break down. If I use any manual frequency parameters X break down too.

1)What's the difference between CRT config and tv-monitor xorg?

2)Have I use strings modeline monitor and modes screen in this situation?

Server :: Adding Raid0 To Slackware 13.1

Jul 1, 2011

I'm an experienced PC technician running a slackware 13.1 distro on a server at home. I've currently got 2x 1TB drives in the box allocated as raid1 for the OS and everything I want to run on the machine. I'd like to think my question/needs are fairly straight forward, I am buying 2x 2TB drives to add to this machine as it serves as a NAS box for one of its roles. I'd like these in raid0 as the data that would be going on it is not that important to me. The question is, after adding the new drives to the system, once I boot up, what do I need to do to the system to get the drives added and working sucessfully as a single raid0 volume that I can then samba share out to my network. To clarify, I understand a little of mdadm as I've used it to raid1 my existing setup when I installed, and I'm fine with the samba bit after.

Slackware :: Adding A Volume To A LUKS/LVM Setup?

Mar 21, 2010

I have been following Alien Bob's README_CRYPT.TXT on the install disk and playing around with LUKS and LVM as highlighted in the section Combining LUKS and LVM. I got this working following the examples in the readme however I now wish to add another volume to the volume group. I have got this working and extended the group with an encrypted volume so it's now bigger. I want the two included physical volumes in the volume group (which are both encrypted) to be opened on bootup.

As it is now I am prompted for a password for the first physical volume (the passwords are set to be the same) and that opens and boots the volume. It has a problem with the second PV I have added and doesn't open this. There are errors on boot up about this and pvdisplay give this:

Couldn't find device with uuid 'JVirxL-lmqH-SUym-3lXG-MnXx-Qjk8-JZRha8'.
Couldn't find device with uuid 'JVirxL-lmqH-SUym-3lXG-MnXx-Qjk8-JZRha8'.

Slackware :: Adding Python After Initial Install ?

Apr 14, 2011

Just installed 13.1 64bit on my laptop. In an effort to keep things slim, I neglected to install the 'D' group....didn't figure I would be doing any developing (call me a literalist). I install Wicd and find that Python is a dependency. What is the easiest way for me to make this happen? Should I just install the python txz or will there be more dependencies that could be solved easier with a script?

Slackware :: Dual Boot Slackware With CentOS Using CentOS GRUB

Apr 11, 2011

For various reasons, I have to learn my way around CentOS. I have an old computer (P3) with Slackware on it. I threw in a second HDD that I had lying around and installed CentOS to it. I was figuring that I'd just decline installing GRUB or point GRUB to Slackware as the second OS and end up with dual boot.

The CentOS install, though, blew right past that part with offering me any options. It put a small boot partition on the CentOS drive and now the box boots straight into CentOS.

I've spent the better part of the day trying to get GRUB to boot the Slackware drive and had no luck, though I've learned a lot about GRUB error messages.

By the way, CentOS uses GRUB v 0.97.

Question: someone could point me to a reference.

Here's the output of fdisk -l on that computer (/dev/sda is a 4GB SCSI disk that was originally the boot disk for Windows 2000 server on that computer):


Here's the currentGRUB file. I added the section about Slackware. I've also tried pointing it at:


I've also tried:



Slackware's LILO:

It's been six months or more since I used this computer. It's my experiment-er "play" computer and I had taken the HDD out to test a computer for one of the members of my LUG, so I can't remember exactly how I configured the LILO install, but, if I did what I usually do, I installed it to the MBR of /dev/hda. I have considered just blowing away LILO, but I'd be happier if I could just use GRUB to call LILO.

Slackware :: Getting A Segmentation Fault And Cannot Configure A Working Xorg.conf?
