Slackware :: Building Mumble 1.2.2 On Slackware - Current 64?

I'm very keen on getting Mumble installed on my slackware -current 64 bit install. I found a slackbuild script for 12.2 here, but changing the version number resulted in failure. I also tried following the build instructions on the Mumble website, which failed with the following.

Software :: Building Nspluginwrapper On Slackware 13.1?

Jan 2, 2011

I did some research and located a nice packaging script "nspluginwrapper.SlackBuild" so I decided to go that route and build a Slackware package for nspluginwrapper. The error I get is the inability to find /usr/include/gnu-32.h when it is building the nspluginviewer. Not realizing that the viewer is what is used by the Browser I edited the configure script to not build that piece and it worked fine after that but of course that defeated what I was trying to do. What it looks like is that I need to have 32 bit headers or both headers and libraries installed to be able to build the viewer. I just want to use the acrobat reader plugin in Firefox. Would someone please provide an explanation of what I need to do to build nsplguinwrapper viewer?

Slackware :: Building Mesa-7.8.1 With Osmesa Support?

May 28, 2011

I'm using Slackware 13.1, just messing around with some stuff before I upgrade to 13.37. I really want to get a decent build of Desmume working, but the 3D engine for it requires OSMesa to be enabled. I've removed the initial Mesa package that I installed from the Slackware DVD and I'm trying to recompile mesa-7.8.1 so that OSMesa is available for the system. However, I keep running into problems.


./configure --enable-gl-osmesa

When I run those options for the configure command and compile it, Mesa builds alright and gives me a working libGL just fine. It also gives me libOSMesa. Yet, when I compile Desmume to specifically use OSMesa, its configure script says that it can't find OSMesa at all. But running ldconfig -p, the output shows in /usr/lib. The symlink is up to date too, and I've recreated it several times.


./configure --with-driver=osmesa

When I build Mesa using these configure options, I don't get libGL (well, that's expected, the manual says as much will happen). But apparently libOSMesa is installed just fine. When I went to compile Desmume, no gripes about OSMesa, but Desmume needs both libGL and OSMesa to work properly.

So my question is, how can I install Mesa so that I have OpenGL and OSMesa working together? I've been able to get one working, but not both. I don't know how to get OpenGL on Slackware without using the Mesa package, but the package isn't cooperating. I'm on Intel graphics too.

Slackware :: Building SlackBuilds KVM Does Not Work - Kernel

Oct 1, 2010

Since there was a lot of talk about virtualization I thought I try kvm -- before I used VirtualBox. I took the SlackBuild from and got an error with u8 as type in /usr/include/scsi/scsi.h. (sorry, I don't have the exact error message anymore..) I searched for its definition and I only found __u8 in /usr/include/linux/types.h. Then I searched the web and found a "fix" which says I have to change u8 from /usr/include/scsi/scsi.h to __u8. This problem was solved, but when I run the SlackBuild now it stops at some point and I don't know why. These are the last few lines of output:

CC arm-softmmu/translate.o
CC arm-softmmu/tcg/tcg.o
CC arm-softmmu/tcg/tcg-runtime.o
CC arm-softmmu/fpu/softfloat.o .....
LINK i386-softmmu/qemu
AR arm-softmmu/libqemu.a
LINK arm-softmmu/qemu-system-arm

I put an echo after the make for building kvm and I put an echo after "make install". None of them are printed.

Slackware :: Building NAS - LVM / RAID Configuration For Partition

Jan 6, 2010

I'm building a NAS, based on the Intel SS4200. There are 4 drive bays in the machine for use with SATA disks, two of which I plan on filling now, the other two which I plan on filling later. The box also includes an IDE connector to which I will connect an 8GB Disk on Module onto which I will install Slackware. I wish to have all drives in the box show up as one contiguous volume. What partitioning/LVM/RAID configuration can I use which will allow me to:

1. Add a disk and transparently grow the available space of the volume?
2. Replace a disk with a larger disk and transparently grow the available space of the volume?
3. Lose a disk to hardware failure and replace it with a new one with no data loss?

If I use RAID 5, I'm pretty certain I can get numbers 1 and 3 above, but I'm not sure about number 2. The downside is that I'd have to start with 3 disks in the machine, and I'm unsure if adding a 4th disk whose size is larger than each of the 3 starting disks would lead to wasted space. For instance, if I start with three 1TB drives in RAID 5, and then add a 2TB 4th drive, would my available size go from 2TB to 3TB? Or from 2TB to 3.xTB?

Is it important in a RAID 5 setup to have all disks the same size? With LVM, I can certainly get number 1 above, but what about 2 and 3? I know you can use LVM to present many disks or partitions as one contiguous volume, but if I have two 1TB drives in one volume, and only have 300GB of data, then would the second drive remain empty until I broke the 1TB barrier? In this case, it's wasted space from the get go. I suppose another option would be to start with RAID 1 until I can afford a third disk.

When adding the new disk, could I switch to RAID 5 without data loss? I'm planning on maintaining a full mirror of the NAS on some USB disks as a backup, so if configuration changes to the NAS require wiping the disks and restoring from backup, it's not a total loss. However, it certainly makes me nervous to be in a state where only one copy of the data exists, so I'd rather find a solution where I can add and upgrade disks in the NAS without relying on the backup copies.

Slackware :: Failure Building Nvidia-kernel Slackbuild From SBo?

Jun 27, 2011

I have a brand new installation of 13.37 but I can't seem to get the nvidia-kernel (64 bit only) Slackbuild from to build. I have the nvidia driver installed and working on 13.1 so I am not desperate yet: although I thought that it could just be something with the older Nvidia driver so I waited for the updated release but it fails in the same way.I have uninstalled xf86-video-nouveau and installed xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist-noarch-1.txz from /extra.I have also installed libvdpau from SBo. The nvidia-driver Slackbuild builds fine.I am using the stock huge kernel but have also tried the kernel from /extra and the kernel from Slackware-current.Here is the error message I am seeing:

Slackware :: Program Segmentation Fault When Building With A Slackbuild?

Nov 25, 2010

So I've wanting to try out the new development branch of compiz (0.9). I made some slackbuilds a while back and installed all of the necessary packages for the compiz window manager. However when ever I tried to launch the program using "compiz --replace ccp &" I would get a segmentation fault. I forgot about it but today I decided to give it another go and after a few hours I decided to try and see what would happen if I just built compiz-core from source with out using a slackbuild, and sure enough it now works. I have hacked the script trying different combinations to try and make it work but no matter what I try unless I install from scratch (directly into the tree) it will not work. If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this so I can make an actual slack package please let me know. Also I used the main developers forum post as a referencem you can view his instructions here [URL]..

Slackware :: Failure Building Multiple Apps Due To Missing Library Jscore?

Jan 26, 2011

I'm having a problem building some applications (e.g. Qsynth and FreeCAD) with sbopkg relating to an unfound library named "jscore". I've been keeping my system up to date with slackware64-current.Google searches have turned up very little about this library. There is a sourceforge page that has no files and seems to be related to a google hosted script jsCore.js... but I don't think that's what's missing here. I've come across some vague references to this jscore library being part of webkit. Can anyone verify this? I updated my webkit library itself and found no apparent results. Perhaps jscore was removed in an update to Qt (both of the example applications mentioned above link to Qt) as it seems to have it's own webkit library, libQtWebKit.

Slackware :: Building Packages, Not Running An Alternate Operating System Or A Service Such As Ssh?

Mar 25, 2011

I have been playing with chroot to build packages.I am wondering about the limits or caveats of using chroot to mix operating systems. For example, what should I beware if I use 12.2 and chroot a 13.1 system? Or if I use 13.1 and chroot a 12.2 system? After all, the chroot does inherit some attributes of the parent system.There is the noticeable difference of kernel versions. For that one reason I'm thinking that mixing system versions might be frustrating.

My focus is building packages, not running an alternate operating system or a service such as ssh. I realize that building packages as root in a chroot potentially compromises security but that is not my focus.I am aware that a chroot is not a true virtual system.A virtual machine is an option, but in this thread I'm curious about the limitations of chroot. I find building packages in my virtual machines much slower than actual hardware, even with a dual core. Hence my interest in chroot
