Slackware :: Compat32pkg - Warnings ?

Feb 28, 2011

I am just now doing the 'final' few tweeks on my new x86_64 Laptop running multilib-enabled Slackware Current and as part of the process, I installed compat32pkg and ran:


Next, to test compat32pkg, I ran:


The compat32pkg script seemed to do the 'right thing', placing the three Slackware Packages in the /var/cache/compat32pkg/compat-32/ directory as it was configured to do:


Note the warnings about 'etc/gtk-2.0/i486-slackware-linux/' ...

Is there a missing file in the SlackPkg ?

Slackware :: Cdrecord And Some Of Its Warnings

Nov 4, 2010

kernel, Slackware 12.0 cdrecord 2.01


This is the command line I used to run cdrecord. Afterwards, I ran 'cdrecord -media-info' on the same disc and, as a result, I got the messages contained in the file I am adjoining. There, two consecutive warnings can be seen, which I quote:


The disk, after recording, however, is both readable by GNU/linux and another O.S. What is the meaning of those warnings and what are its possible implications? I would like to know.

Slackware :: PyGTK 2.4 / Warnings Generated When Using Matplotlib (though Execution Can Continue)?

Mar 28, 2011

Is there any reason why PyGTK is still at 2.22?

There are warnings generated when using Matplotlib (though execution can continue).

Will we likely see an upgrade before 13.37?

Slackware :: Difference Between Files (xorg.conf And Xorg.conf-vesa)?

1. What is the difference between files (xorg.conf and xorg.conf-vesa)

Slackware :: No More Xorg.conf?

Jun 2, 2010

Sorry if this was well covered here when most up-to-date Slackers moved to 13.0, but I have just jumped from 12.1 to 13.1. Generally very happy that I do not have to think about xorg.conf as I always found the structure of this conf file a tad confusing. However if I do need to (for example) change my video driver (I might for example want to try the nvidia driver from NVIDIA) or configure my touchpad - how do I do this ?

I understand that xorg.conf can still be created. If I do so, do I have to put all the stuff in that used to be there or can I just add the stuff I need to make the changes I am looking for?

Slackware :: Can't Add Ubuntu Into Lilo.conf

Jan 10, 2011

I finally installed Slackware and now I have Windows, Slackware and Ubuntu in my laptop. I installed Ubuntu at the last order and at that time GRUB the default loader. But I feel that I'd like to use lilo more, so I booted into Slackware and run "lilo" and then lilo became the default loader.But then I cannot access Ubuntu anymore. Because in lilo there're no information about Ubuntu. So I added some information about Ubuntu according to that of Windows in lilo. But that failed. I still cannot access Ubuntu. I searched for the posts about this problem, and this is what they say:



or something like this. But in my slack I cannot find the image or the initrd.

Slackware :: No Xorg.conf.d Directory In 13.1?

Feb 20, 2011

I just did a clean install of 13.1 on one of my laptops and the scroll doesn't work on the synaptics touchpad. I've seen some comments about adding a file to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory. I don't have this directory. Is it ok to add this, or did I screw something up during the install. I did another 13.1 install about a week ago and it is also missing this directory. Is this just something in current and not in 13.1?

Slackware :: Can't Add Ubuntu Into Lilo.conf?

Jan 10, 2011

My thread "Can't add Ubuntu into lilo.conf" was merged with this one.That problem has been solved, As I solved that problem, I got several more questions: When applying the changes by run "lilo", there's a warning about "large-memory". How come and how to solve? When loading into lilo, there's a capital character "U" in front of "Ubuntu". At the same time, there's nothing in front of Slackware or Windows. I wonder why. And, now that lilo read the booting info from slackware, if sometimes slackware get collapsed, could I still be able to access lilo? If I can access lilo, can I still boot into the other OSes?

Slackware :: Sane Not Reading Dll.conf?

Jul 9, 2010

I'm trying to setup an Epson perfection 4490 photo scanner in Slack 13.1. I've got the appropriate iscan and epkowa driver and firmware. However it is not working: sane-find-scanner produces:Code:found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x0119 [EPSON Scanner]) at libusb:001:004but scanimage -L finds nothing. After battling a lot with dll.conf and epkowa.conf I decided to run strace scanimage -L and to my shock it never tries to read dll.conf, instead it goes straight to read xerox_mfp.conf and does not try to read any other conf file in /etc/sane.dHas anyone come across problems with sane in 13.1 (or 13.0 as I tried this before upgrading with the same results)?

Slackware :: 13 X64 Doesn't See Xorg.conf?

Apr 9, 2010

I have freshly installed Slackware 13 64-bit.

After messing around last time trying to compile fglrx for my ATi card, I now understand it uses a built in radeon driver.

My question is this: how do I get X to recoqnise my custom xorg.conf file? I dropped it in /etc/X11 but to no avail.

HAL does it great job - but I need my xorg.conf as I have dual monitors which HAL doesn't configure correctly (displays mirrored, not stretched).

Slackware :: TV - MONITOR 26 And Xorg.conf ?

Jun 9, 2011

I bought a very beaultiful pink tv-monitor 26", model LG26LED6500 for my daughter and I also intend to enjoy it setting up in my slackware 13.37. Then I use a VGA cable and 6600GT nvidia card, but now I'm having a doubt because there aren't vertical and horizontal frequencies specs in this manual. Only:

I did a xorg.conf using a vesa driver and kde screen output was a 1024x768 - 61hz.

If I try to use a nvidia driver and xorg.conf piece above X break down. If I use any manual frequency parameters X break down too.

1)What's the difference between CRT config and tv-monitor xorg?

2)Have I use strings modeline monitor and modes screen in this situation?

Slackware :: Wireless Keeps Dropping - Using Edited Rc.inet1.conf

I wanted to save a bit of ram and so removed wicd from startup. I deleted rc.wireless.conf and edited rc.inet1.conf as per the instructions. A connection is made at startup but it seem to drop quite often ( not too hard to restart, but a bit of a pain ). I am running a k-2.6.37 with a zydas usb zd1121 chip

Slackware :: System All The Time Creates /.config/Trolltech.conf?

Slackware :: Script Which Reinstates Original Content Of /etc/resolve.conf After Using Wicd

Dec 16, 2010

I have discovered that after employing the Wicd Network Manager I can no longer connect via ppp. The reason, it seems, is that each instance of Wicd changes the content of my /etc/resolv.conf file from:

search SPRINT

Generated by dhcpcd
# /etc/resolv.conf.head can replace this line
# /etc/resolv.conf.tail can replace this line

It has been suggested that I write a script that does this.

Slackware :: Build - Change The Picture With Lilo.conf Doesnít Work

May 5, 2010

when i load lilo, everything is greenish and weird, i tried to change the picture with Lilo.conf, fallowing the exact instruction given by linux forum, dosnt work. the linux logo got verry strange colors has well,verry ugly.

at first i tried to install my ati driver, but my x1800 is not supported anymore, so i decided to run xconfsetup to use the default ati driver. After that i have been in the xorg.conf generated by the setup and it seem they got the right driver, it say radeon in the device section. another problem i experience is that everytime i lod KDE my default resolution suck, and when i open the control panel and click on display, everything goes right.

the last problem is more serious, when i order my computer to shutdown either by command line or with the logout button, the screen goes black and nothing happen at all. Its sad beccause so far everything else seem to work fine, i installed my network card and my sound card properly.

General :: How To Handle Warnings

Oct 15, 2010

I've been trying to understand issues that occur during a uClinux distribution build (so I can include such issues in a module I'm writing for students). My process has been to work through errors that occur due to missing packages, then remove the distribution and build it again to uncover what happens.One thing I notice is different sets of warnings within each iteration of making a new build. From the document here ( states, "A typical warning involves a variable being used before its value has been set."

So my question: is there a way to verify that the issue throwing the warning has been resolved by the end of the make build?And, is running make build again an option or could this cause problems within the build directories or image?

You should be running a firewall. I would also periodically check for rootkits with rkhunter and chkrootkit. Antivirus is usually optional, but it depends on your network ... if you have Window$ machines, do use clamav or something.Hope I'm not distorting the thread but just ran rkhunter and got a lot of red warnings, especially worrying seems:

CentOS 5 Server :: Loading Multiple Virtual Host Conf Files From Httpd.conf?

Jun 1, 2009

I've been scanning the apache2 docs for the past few days and have not come up with an answer my following issue:

In my httpd.conf file, at the very end, I have the line

Include conf/vhosts/vhost_*.conf

However, when I run apache checkconfig or try to start apache, it gives me the error:

httpd: Syntax error on line 993 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf: Could not open configuration file /etc/httpd/conf/vhosts/vhost_1.conf: Permission denied

It appears as if the Include line is correct - in terms of it grabbing the first virtual host conf file. However, I'm confused on the permissions. the /etc/httpd folder is owned by root:root, as are the subfolders. As a test, I chown'd the conf/vhost folder combination and all the vhost files to apache:apache to see if that made a difference, and it appeared to make no difference at all. The log files don't contain anything (assumed because apache isn't starting). If I place the contents of the vhosts in a singular vhosts.conf it works - with the permissions set to root:root. I'd like to avoid having to use one vhosts conf for the configuration I'm trying to achieve - as it would make my life a lot easier.
