Slackware :: Building Erlang-otp In Slackware 13.37?
May 21, 2011
I'm trying to build erlang-otp using slackbuild script from http://slackbuilds.org/. I've got these errors while building:
checking lex output file root... configure: error: cannot find output from flex; giving up
configure: error: /bin/sh '/tmp/SBo/otp_src_R14B01/lib/megaco/./configure' failed for megaco/.
configure: error: /bin/sh '/tmp/SBo/otp_src_R14B01/lib/configure' failed for lib
GNU flex is in system, so I have no idea what has goes wrong. Maybe someone know the issue?
I'm currently trying to install unRaid on Slackware following this tutorial :[URL].. I'm new to Linux and after many hours, i finally managed to build the new kernel for unRAID (126.96.36.199). But audio on HDMI port doesn't work I tried alsaconf without success. HDMI sound works when i boot into the old kernel.
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.
Code: neil@slackbox:~/Downloads/mumble/mumble-1.2.2$ qmake -recursive main.pro Reading /home/neil/Downloads/mumble/mumble-1.2.2/src/mumble11x/mumble11x.pro WARNING: /home/neil/Downloads/mumble/mumble-1.2.2/src/mumble11x/mumble11x.pro:33: Variable LIBPATH is deprecated; use QMAKE_LIBDIR instead.

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?
I've been trying to install Compiz 0.8.4 from the source code provided by the Compiz people.
However, when I run make on the first set of code (compiz-0.8.4 tar package), it halts with the following error:
As well as --disable-gconf and --disable-gnome since gnome isn't install on Slackware (I've also tried it without those, but it picks up on it anyway and throws them out). The folder I'm running this from is /root/Desktop/Compiz Fusion/compiz-0.8.4.
Since there was a lot of talk about virtualization I thought I try kvm -- before I used VirtualBox. I took the SlackBuild from SlackBuilds.org 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 root@tux:/home/christian/Downloads/kvm#
I put an echo after the make for building kvm and I put an echo after "make install". None of them are printed.
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.
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.
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 libOSMesa.so in /usr/lib. The symlink is up to date too, and I've recreated it several times.
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.
I've done a clean install of Slackware 13.37 64-bit and am having trouble with building the Perl modules for Bugzilla 4.x.x (downloaded yesterday with bzr). This same problem exists with both Bugzilla stable and 4.1.2+.Executing checksetup.pl results in
Code: checksetup.pl * This is Bugzilla 4.1.2+ on perl 5.12.3
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]..
I use Slackware 13.0 with the 188.8.131.52 kernel, and I use GnomeSlackbuild.I tried to get help on their discussion group, but I didn't get any.I'm trying to build gnome-power-manager 2.30, because it uses the new upower interface (so it seems). I have GTK+ 2.18.9.
Trying to get Midori browser from SBOpkg's and one of the dependencies is libsoup.configure: error: GLIB 2.21.3 or later is required to build libsoup.Anyone able to give me a pointer in the right direction to overcome this.
I have a brand new installation of 13.37 but I can't seem to get the nvidia-kernel (64 bit only) Slackbuild from slackbuilds.org 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 184.108.40.206 huge kernel but have also tried the 220.127.116.11 kernel from /extra and the 18.104.22.168 kernel from Slackware-current.Here is the error message I am seeing:
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.
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
I have been given the task to install slackware 13.1 over windows. I have downloaded and copied slackware 13.1 on to a disk, and rebooted the computer, but i am not getting what all the tutorials have shown. I have been looking for tutorials that specifically instruct me as to how to install slackware 13.1 on to a windows xp. I am not trying to dual run I just simply want to run slackware and slackware only.
I recently installed Slackware Linux 13.1 , and my Wireless is down. I've only installed 3 Linux disto's on my main laptop (Ubuntu 9.10 , 10.04 , and Crunchbang Linux 9.04 , just had Crunchbang), and they all had the same problem. In all three , I was able to enable Windows Wireless drivers and every thing worked. Now , I'm assuming I have to the same ting in Slackware? Sorry , but I have no idea what my wireless card is. But I know that my laptop is a Dell Insprion E1705. One last thing , I did ifconfig and that wlan0 is my Wi-Fi interface. I typed ifconfig wlan0 up to see if that was the problem. After I did that , I got and error message. Then I typed ifconfig wlan0 down to see if it was down and it made wlan0 down. I tried bringing it up again , but I got an error saying it couldn't find the device specified. Also , how do I install XFCE? I really don't like KDE for some reason and would like to install XFCE. I chose XFCE over GNOME (my favorite) because I want to try something new.
I installed slackware 13.1 x86_64 bit with multilib, and its been about a month already, I'm really enjoying slackware but I am being troubled with my nvidia card, and I need to get my 3D acceleration working. And I've been looking around the net for information and kept on trying to make my nvidia card to work but to no avail. I cant get X to start, once I put in a xorg.conf stating to use the nvidia card. After troubleshooting for almost 2 weeks and now at my wits end, I now come humbly looking for help in linuxquestions slackware community forum.I've installed nvidia 64 bit kernel, drivers from slackbuilds (version 256.44). The laptop model I'm trying to get it working is an -ASUS K52J Intel Core i3 2.40Ghz with 2GB RAM and with an Nvidia Geforce 310M with 1GB dedicated VRAM.
I noticed that the official Slackware packages don't contain static libraries. The SlackBuild scripts from slackbuilds.org or from Slackware DVD usually contain --disable-static option to prevent building the .a file. And if configure script doesn't allow such option, the .a file is deleted before the package is created.I am wondering what is the reason for that? Is it just the matter of conserving disk space? Are there also other reasons?
how to on enable ling separate X sessions with dual monitors in slackware? In rhel all I have to do is enable it under the nvidia-settings... In slackware it does not work that well... to what I understand you have to configure a separate x session...
it's possible to compile the 2.6.37 kernel patched with the autogroup patch on a Slackware 13.1 system running 22.214.171.124-smp with 126.96.36.199 headers? I just compiled and installed the 2.6.37-autogroup kernel from AUR on my ARCH setup and I like it especially when using firefox with lots of tabs open and other background apps also running. I did notice a speed and smothness difference in my ARCH testing setup with this kernel patch and I can get same results in 13.1??
I'm happy to announce Linvo 2009.1 rc6. It's a full-featured Linux distribution with a lot of applications by default, including an office suite (OpenOffice.org extended with plugins), a good internet browser (Firefox extended with plugins), a music player that supports music collection and a lot more - Exaile, a video player, and all the available codecs. It can open all types of file formats. It's a LiveCD, which means that you can test it without installing and after this optionally install it - it has a nice easy graphical installer.
It's the first Slackware-based LiveCD distribution with GNOME by default. It includes NetworkManager and initng in place of sysvinit. It also features accessibility tools. It is also the first release with the innovative portable applications system. This allows you to download application from the site (modules section), place it where you like, and use it. It's just a single file, no directories. You can also use this application without installing it, directly from the internet. However, after this, the speed of the application is limited by the speed of your connection, of course. Check out the "Applications" section on the website.
Besides this, you can install software with the apt-get-like system "slapt-get" and it's graphical front-end: GSlapt. It also contains src2pkg and sbopkg in case you want to compile something from source or existing SlackBuild Depfinder is included to find dependencies of packages. Click here for a guide on how to use those. I also managed to put development tools in there, like GCC, G++, svn, cvs, so on... This is a release candidate, and despite that it's OK for using. It has a bit more things to do until the release (like language selection on the boot menu), but I decided that it's important to put it here for testing.
We are pleased to present one of our new creations: pkgbuild, a tool written in standard C++, using libCURL, ZLib, BZip2 and libLZMA (part of XZ). It is a modern Slackware packages builder, network-transparent, multi-architecture, designed to greatly simplify the creation of a package, automatically executing the required post processing.
What does it do? Recognize and build packages for the following architectures: i386, i486, i586, i686, x86_64, IA64, IA32e, s390, s390x, sparc and sparc64.
I'm trying to bring my Slackware system back to life as my XP HDD is dying... I've got everything working except for my audio. I got a new motherboard (ASRock P43DE3) and it has a VIA VT1708S as the onboard audio. Is there any way I can get this working without rebuilding the kernel?
I try to install Slackware to my IDE hard drive and boot first from Slackware DVD. After I loaded huge.s kernel, and tried to partition the hard drive using fdisk by entering "fdisk /dev/hda", I found out that the partition size is max to 3 Gigs instead of 80 Gigs.
I think the kernel is looking at my boot disk, which is around 3 Gigs. How can I make so that it looks at my IDE drive instead at my boot drive? Is there any manual that shows me how to install Linux from scratch this means I want to wipe out all my hard disk and install Slackware Linux there?
