Slackware :: Should Last Line In SlackBuild Be Changed .tgz To .txz
Jun 23, 2010
Running Slackware64-13.1; installed the SlackBuild Blender and I changed the last line in SlackBuild script to .txz everything seems fine. Now I'm looking at FlashPlayer SlackBuild, noticed the last line is .tgz? Just want to make sure I am supposed to be changing the last script line .tgz to .txz?
I am going to try out a tiling wm and I have narrowed my search down to scrotwm and dwm. I installed scrotwm from slackbuilds.org but it did not show up as a selection when I ran xwmconfig? Any ideas as to why? So then I went install dwm from slackbuilds.org but saw there was only a build script for slackware 13 as opposed to 13.1 which is what I am running. So two questions for dwm, one why is there no slackbuild for 13.1, and two when I tried to use the slackbuild for 13 this also didn't show up under xwmconfig, any thoughts?
As always, very impressive effort from Slackbuilds.org to get slackbuild scripts updated for 13.1. Thanks to all who maintain these scripts. One which does not seem to have made it to 13.1 so far is a build script for WINE. Anybody know whether this is beacuse of some problem ? Or just an oversight ? The 13.0 script is there - might be OK to just use this with 13.1 ?
At least, that is what I think happened.I was interested in trying out tilda, which needs the confuse libary, both of which are slackbuilds on slackbuilds.orgI built and installed confuse, and then went to build tilda but got some error I could not follow up on.However after this, nothing as a normal user would work!For some reason my libary directories, /lib64, /usr/lib64 and other key directories such as /usr/share and /usr/bin were set to have permissions 700It took me a while to figure out what was causing the problem.Can anyone confirm that the confuse slackbuild resets your permissions like this? Otherwise, what could have caused it?Can someone please give me the correct permissions for those direcories? Is it safe to just do chmod -R 755 /usr and /lib64?
I'm trying to install OpenShot for the second time. I was originally trying to make a slackbuild for this, when a new one appeared in SBo. It does not work for me, however. It seems that it has to run a python install script and this fails. The package then complains that it cannot find the mlt python bindings.
Im trying to recompile glibc from a working slackware-current system using source from a slackware mirror. I'm doing it for testing purpose only. Never done that before, so i'm not sure if i'm doing it right. I get the following error:
make: Entering directory `/glibc-tmp-a44be92860d34519b0c9a4500878e2e6/glibc-2.11.1/iconvdata' ../Makeconfig:85: ../i486/config.make: No such file or directory /bin/sh: line 0: cd: ../i486: No such file or directory The GNU C library has not been configured.
I used the fbreader.SlackBuild in a 64bit system to create a package and I got some libraries installed under /usr/lib instead of /usr/lib64. FBReader seems to work fine though, so I'm not sure this is a problem. I guess it could be if some other app looks for those libraries. Just thought I should report it anyway.
If 13.1 and KDE 4.4.3 aren't new enough for anyone, I've just successfully built and installed KDE 4.4.4 with the slackbuilds for 4.4.3. I had to edit the Slackbuild for kdenetwork by commenting out the line that patches the source. Other than that everything seems to be fine, although I don't know yet if this is a good thing or a bad thing since I've just got it installed.
I was trying to install the HandBrake slackbuild. It gave me an error saying it needed webkit, so I check for it in slackbuilds.org, where I found it. Listing said it required two things: libsoup and icu4c. So I downloaded the slackbuilds for those two and they installed fine, then started the install for webkit.
It did its build thing for about ten minutes, then it errors out, but the error message is pretty convoluted so I'm not sure what its telling me. Here's the last few lines from the terminal:
Anyone know what went wrong, and what I need to do to fix this?
I downloaded the slackbuilds openoffice.org files, extracted them, added the original source, ran chmod +x openoffice.org.SlackBuild, ran ./openoffice.org.SlackBuild, then found the resulting .tgz and installpkg'ed it. I was able to get through all of the steps listed without any error messages and everything seemed to be going well. However, now when I navigate to opt/openoffice.org3 (the created folder) and attempt to run any of the programs from kde nothing happens. When I attempt to run them in terminal I get the following message:
root@slacktop:~# soffice /usr/bin/soffice: line 98: /opt/openoffice.org3/program/../basis-link/program/pagein: No such file or directory /usr/bin/soffice: line 104: /opt/openoffice.org3/program/../basis-link/ure-link/bin/javaldx: No such file or directory /usr/bin/soffice: line 129: /opt/openoffice.org3/program/soffice.bin: No such file or directory
is there some reason these files wouldn't be in there after a normal installation? I read the howto on slackbuilds.org several times to make sure I got all the steps right, and have tried uninstalling with removepkg and reinstalling and the same thing keeps happening.
On my ubuntu system when I was editing pdf files I used PDF-ShufflerSo now I wrote a slackbuild script for my slackware 13 (xfce)To be more specific, I dont know how to write a slackbuild script so I try to edit the pyPdf.SlackBuild script, hopefully it works! So I want to give it in public view maybe someone need it some time.
Where do slackbuild scripts put all their stuff? Because I was compiling QT4 with a slackbuild script and after like 10 years it finally got to the end I think and it was creating the tar.gz file in /tmp I think and then my stupid athlon overheated and my computer turned off. So I got an air compressor and blew all the dust out of the cooling fins and started over. But the script started completely over from the beginning like it hadn't done it all already.
My athlon's overheated before when compiling manually and when restarting make just skips all the files it already compiled. I wonder the slackbuild script doesn't do that.
I installed slackware 13 reacentlyi was trying to build wvstreams and wvdialwhen i give the ./wvdial.Slackbild it runs for quite some time and at the end while creating the package it gives me an error cannot find gzip compression utility in $PATH. and there is no tgz or txz package in /tmp folderthen i ran pkgtool and found that gzip isnt installed. the i installed it from the slackware dvd. but still i am getting the same error
