Slackware :: Slackware Current Installpkg Line 59 Rev Command Not Found

First time I've done this in awhile Upgrading my Slackware64 -current VM, following the standard routine that has always worked in the past -


slackpkg clean-system
slackpkg install-new
The clean-system removed 2 packages -

Installpkg will no longer work, complaining that the rev command is not found. The problem hit with the removal of util-linux-ng. I cp'd util-linux to ~/. Extracted with tar and executed the doinstall. Fixed.

Slackware :: Rev: Command Not Found After An Upgrade To Current
I'm using Slackware current. I've updated my current after about two months from the last update, and since there was a huge number of changes I'm having some problems. In particular, I've forgot (my fault!) to give a "slackpkg install-new" before rebooting, so now I'm getting stuck...

Installpkg now claims a "rev" command, but I cannot figure how to find it, since the Slackware package browser on the website is still broken (when will it be available?!?!). Now, each time I try to install or upgrade a new package, I get this error:

/sbin/upgradepkg: line 41: rev: command not found
/sbin/installpkg: line 59: rev: command not found

Where can I find the package containing "rev"?

Slackware :: Not Found Current X64
I am running Slackware x64 current. I just did a slackpkg update and slackpkg upgrade-all.

I am trying to compile the latest kernel and I am getting:

host:/usr/src/linux# make menuconfig
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
/usr/libexec/gcc/x86_64-slackware-linux/4.5.1/cc1: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [scripts/basic/fixdep] Error 1
make: *** [scripts_basic] Error 2

When I try whereis - nothing found? gcc and glibc was one of the packages updated.

I have tried ldconfig. No change there?

Slackware :: Directory Location Of A Slackbuild Installpkg ?
I have used a couple of slackbuild binary packages (i.e. without doing the actually build) and have worked fine. Thanks to those who have spent the time and effort to create them.

When installing the package I wanted to know what binary files were being put on my machine and at which directory location. This was more out of curiosity.

However, now I plan to get the boost slackbuild package. It's more relevant to know where it's being installed. Is there a way to know that? Also, can I specify a different directory?

Slackware :: Cannot Run Installpkg And PKGtool As Normal User
I have recently installed the Slack 13.1 x86_64 on my laptop. It works fine! But I have one trouble with it. I cannot run the installpkg and pkgtool with my normal user. It says to me that there is no command found. Is it a problem with the sudoers file or these commands are not really installed? Maybe my path is incomplete?

Slackware :: Mount Command Gone In Current
Used slackpkg to upgrade my box to current today and the mount and umount commands have disappeared ! The box hangs at boot time as it cannot mount any partitions. I had to boot off a rescue cd and manually extract the util-linux package from slackware/a , copy the commands across and set up links to sbin and /usr/bin.

Slackware :: Image / Icon Trouble After Slackware-current Upgrade
I recently upgraded to slackware-current from Slackware 13 via slackroll, and have only encountered one problem. My file manager no longer thumbnails images, and icons (mostly PNG) aren't appearing no matter what GTK theme is set. Running from the command line produces no errors, and when brought up in something else (say feh /path/to/icon.png) it works perfectly. This is the only hitch I have encountered so far. The same thing happens with emoticons in Pidgin. Does anyone know of a fix?

Slackware :: Xorgconfig: Command Not Found?
I'm trying to reconfigure xwindows because it looks like it's using default generic vga drivers and personally my gui looks like shit and when I open firefox to browse the web everything looks like shit, but when I run xorgconfig I get the following

xorgconfig: command not found

I searched google and couldn't find any helpful information.

I tried running xorgsetup but that's about worthless as can get it only setups the keyboard and asks you what color bit you want to use.

Slackware :: Slackware Current Freezes At Splash Screen / Fix It?
I have been using slackware since version 10.1 and really like it. I have never had a problem until lately, version 13.1 has been stable as a rock for me. The first 2 or 3 updates to current ran well but then the problem started. After installation Slackware would get to the splash screen and bring up the first picture of a disk drive then just hang and never go any further. I do have a good burn on the dvd, have checked the md5 and burned at 4x. then slack 13.37 does the same thing. this is on 4 different computers with several different video boards.

Slackware :: How Should Proprietary ATI Driver Be Installed On Slackware Current 64-bit?
I've tried a few different ways to install the ATI graphics driver "fglrx" to get 3D acceleration.If I try to install using the standard file "" from the ATI web site it appears to work but then I discover it actually got an error.I saw a reference to ATI requiring 32-bit libraries to install their 64-bit driver. Is there a link or post that explains how to add the 32-bit libraries. Will that solve the problem, or will I just waste more time trying that?

Slackware :: Graphics Not Loading After Upgrading To Slackware-Current
I've upgraded Slackware-13.1 I had installed to Slackware-Current using a local tree I had download with script, but when I rebooted I could not get the graphics to load. I think it's because I've also modified /etc/groups and add an username after audio: and video: group, but I forgot that and had to remove slackware from the machine.

Slackware :: Unable To Excludes.txt And
I use Alien Bob's with an excludes.txt to only download the parts of current that I want. Unfortunately it is not working for part of the exclude.txt file and I am at a loss to know why.

The excludes.txt is




This ignores e/ f/ y/ testing/ pasture/ source/ and usb-and-pxe-installers/ It also ignores most of kdei/ and /extra It is meant to ignore most of extra/source and just download the source for flash-player-plugin, but it is ignoring all of extra/source/, however the same syntax is working for kdei/ and extra/.

Slackware :: X11 Mouse Frozen In Slackware-current?
I'm running slackware-current in a virtual machine on virtualbox 4, 512 mb ram, 1gb swap.Everything works fine, except the x11 mouse. Xfce will start up fine, and show the 'tips and tricks' dialog, and then freeze. I can't change to a TTY, or click. The mouse moves, but doesn't click.

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.
