Slackware :: Dead Items At - Default Source Tarball Is No Longer Accessible

Oct 6, 2010

Recenlty I installed sbopkg for maintaining slackbuilds scripts and I found it very useful. But there are some limitations coming from outdated repositories for older version of slackware. Eg. a tar ball with Maxima source maxima-18.1.... which is default in the repository for slack 12.2 doesn't exist at this moment. One can find older and newer versions. I understand that maintainers of slackbuild scripts are rather focused on recent slack version. Nevertheless such outdated entries should be somehow marked

in the way that a visitor will know that a default source tarball is no longer accessible. Maybe persons who submit the scripts should be responsible for keeping track for a sources. If that problem won't be solved it is a danger that will play only a role of some addons to the very recent slack release - but if this will be a case then simpler is to build say additional two or three DVD's of packages.

Debian Installation :: Dead Keyboard - Can't Choose Any Items On Menu?

Feb 18, 2010

I downloaded one of the businesscard isos and booted up, but have run into the problem that my usb keyboard is dead in the installer. It works in setting up my bios, and has always worked before, but I cannot choose any items on the installation menu. I found a bug report that seems to be this issue, but it said that this would be fixed when debian moves to the 2.6.32 kernel on the installer.

Ubuntu :: Can't Find The Tarball For The GNOME Source Code?

Jun 15, 2011

I want to build my own GNOME. The problem I have is that I cannot find the tarball for the GNOME source code. Another thing I've read on their website is that the way to build it is not the conventional './configure, make, make install', and that it has to be done using a multi-phase process. Is this correct?

Ubuntu Networking :: Open Linksys Router No Longer Accessible

Aug 28, 2011

I have a linksys router in my basement and physical access is pretty much blocked by a stuck trap-door. I could try to shut off the main power switch, but I like to see that as a last resort. The problem I have is that I have an open (no encryption) wifi connection between my pc and linksys router, yet I cannot connect to it. Until a couple of days ago I could connect to it with my android handheld device, my linux laptop, and my windows desktop. All these devices are now unable to connect. I attached the wicd log from my linux laptop. How to gain access to my router again?

Slackware :: Automatic SlackBuilds Installer

Jan 31, 2010

I have started to write a SlackBuilds installer, similar in spirit to slackpkg. So far it is only about 100 lines of code and it can search for a package and install it automatically from I doubt it will ever be as polished as slackpkg but it may be useful for some people. Maybe something like this already exists? If it does then I would like to check it out. If however this doesn't exist then I will most likely continue to develop my program. So far it is quite crude but it does install and search for packages.

Slackware :: Slackbuilds Leftover Files?

Feb 23, 2011

I am a big user of SlackBuilds. The question here is that under /var/lib/sbopkg/SBo/13.1/* there are a lot of files that seem to be un-needed. Can I safely remove these to reclaim some space or do they need to stay?
If they do need to stay, what do they do?

Slackware :: Why Don't We Have A Ports-like SlackBuilds Tree?

Jan 9, 2010

I think I've finally settled on Slackware, but I kept missing Arch or FreeBSD for some reason. Last night I realized it's the abs/ports systems they have. I love the freedom to rebuild any package from source so I can configure build options and not worry about how packages from third party sites were compiled (missing features, patent restrictions, etc.). is awesome, and according to that site Pat uses SlackBuilds to build the official packages. Wouldn't it be great if there was a /var/slackbuilds/ directory with subdirectories for each software set for the officially supported software and then a subdirectory for each category on would really like to see this in Slackware some time. It would help organize all the available software in the official sets and and make it easy to compile anything. Other software would, as usual, be downloaded from third-party sources and simply installed that way.

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 :: Create SlackBuilds And Build Them Manually?

Apr 11, 2011

I'm using Slackware 13.1. There are some software I need that not presented in repos (e.g GIS software and utilities), so I create SlackBuilds and build them manually.

When compiling some libraries I get problems with libdl - the dynamic linker library. As I understand, this library absolutely required by some other libs.

For some odd reason, it seems that this library is automatically supported on other distros (e.g. Debian), but not on Slackware. As result ./configure script can't find necessary libs and fails with messages like

checking for sqlite3_prepare_v2 in -lsqlite3... no
configure: error: 'libsqlite3' is required but it doesn't seems to be
installed on this system.

Slackware :: Plan To Install SlackBuilds VirtualBox

Mar 9, 2011

I plan to install SlackBuild: virtualbox-ose (3.2.10) on my stand alone laptop.The following are excerpts from the SlackBuild Readme file and I was hoping that someone might have the time to clarify a few things:
"By default VirtualBox will be compiled with hardening enabled. That means all binaries will be run suid root, which is the default behaviour of upstream packages. However, you are still able to disable this by passing HARDENING=no to the script."Why would I want to do this? If I did want to do this, how do I pass 'HARDENING=no' to the script? What script?

Edit: I found something on this and see that I'll just include my user in the proper group and I should be ok.'To compile virtualbox without the Qt4 GUI pass QT4=no to the script'I have a package called: qt-4.6.2_2d3d3e5-i486-1 installed - does this mean that I have Qt4 installed?'To enable the webservice pass WEBSERVICE=yes to the script. This adds gsoap to the list of required dependencies.'Why would I want to do this? If I did want to do this, how do I pass 'WEBSERVICE=yes' to the script? Also, to do this I would have to install gsoap first, right?'If you want to attach VirtualBox to a VDE network you will need vde2.I don't need this for my stand alone world, right?This requires acpica, and the virtualbox-kernel package is needed at runtime.'Does this mean that VDE network requires acpica or that this SlackBuild require acpica?

Ubuntu :: Compiz Stopped Working, CompizConfig Settings Manager No Longer Accessible?

May 18, 2010

I did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba Satellite, Intel graphics card, a few days ago, and had no trouble accessing the CompizConfig Settings Manager. I changed a number of settings, and everything seemed to be working just fine. But two days ago, I noticed that the compiz effects (rotating desktop cube, minimize effect etc.) were gone; and when I now try to access the Settings Manager, I see a "Starting CompizConfig..." appear in the panel and linger for about five seconds; then it's gone. No settings manager, no error message.

The day that happened, I had (to the best of my memory) not installed any updates. I had, however, removed a bunch of applications through the Software Center. I had also launched Ubuntu Tweak and changed a couple of settings. The only option it showed, and shows, under 'Compiz Settings' was then (and still is): "Prerequisite Conditions" : "Install Advanced Desktop Effects Settings Manager". The box was checked. I have since unchecked and re-checked it, thereby uninstalling and re-installing the settings manager. But that hasn't changed anything.

Slackware :: SBo SlackBuilds Fail At Make Install Under Latest

Mar 4, 2010

I'm running a clean install of the latest version of -current64.When I try to run a number of SlackBuilds from SBo, the scripts stop (no error) after the make install step.If I manually run all of the commands after make install, I get a fully functional package, and the program works with no problems.In looking as the logs, I don't see any errors during the configure, make, or make install steps.

I'm having problems with other scripts as well that are not XFCE related, but these are good examples. Another oddity is that the SlackBuild script for thunar-archive-plugin at works.I've never had any problems with these scripts before, and many other scripts still run just fine. I can't track down a common problem here.
