Slackware :: Src2pkg Auto Library Links

Apr 1, 2011

auto generated files when using the -A switch.

The file will contain link removal and generation for libraries in the package eg.

When upgrading to a new version of the app, the library name might change eg.

So the links that creates is now incorrect. ie. the link is now dead because it points to a file that does not exist. Does one have to regenerate .src2pkg and resulting when using a new version of the package or is there another way to have regenerated without redoing .src2pkg?

Slackware :: Src2pkg Installing Privoxy / Build A Package Of Privoxy With Src2pkg?

Apr 15, 2010

In INSTALL I can see:


to build from either unpacked tarball or CVS source:

./configure # (--help to see options)
make # (the make from GNU, sometimes called gmake)
su # Possibly required
make -n install # (to see where all the files will go)
make -s install # (to really install, -s to silence output)

I think that trouble is in autoheader. I don't now does src2pkg (2.1) support it.Is it impossible to build a package of privoxy with src2pkg?

Slackware :: Made By The Script From The Aaa_base Package?

Jun 24, 2010

I've noticed that this symlink was pointing to /var/X11R6, which doesn't exist on my system, which is running a newly installed copy of Slackware 13.1. Upon investigation, it was made by the script from the aaa_base package. The script looks for /usr/X11R6/lib/X11, and is supposed to create the /var/X11R6 symlink if the directory exists. The problem is that the aaa_base package is installed first, no? On a clean system, there is no X11 directory for it to link to. The offending part of the script:

# Did anything ever use this? I don't know, but if we're keeping all
# this other garbage then it probably won't hurt:
if [ -d usr/X11R6/lib/X11 ]; then
( cd var ; rm -rf X11R6 )
( cd var ; ln -sf ../usr/X11R6/lib/X11 X11R6 )
elif [ -d usr/X11R6/lib64/X11 ]; then

Slackware :: Src2pkg Fails With No_Install_Line Given?

Aug 14, 2010

I know this is probably simple, but I have been trying to upgrade to the latest release of Opera, downloaded the Bz2 file, and when running source to package it fails with this error. Opera seems to be the only app this fails with. I got the same error on the previous release as well, so I just gave up and waited until finally got that release.

I searched here and the net, and did in fact find a previous post about this, but, truthfully, I didn't understand the explanation at all.

Anyone have any idea how to handle this error?

Slackware :: Use Src2pkg On Source Directories?

Apr 27, 2010

I am wondering if there is a way to use src2pkg on source directories I have checked out from git? I can't see any such option in the manpage. At the moment it works if I tar it up, but I can't find a way to just use the directory directly.

Slackware :: Src2pkg Install - With Helpers ?

Mar 12, 2010

Had 1.9.9 installed and upgraded using 2.1 but 'src2pkg --setup' throws an error. So I removed any existing packages and re-downloaded/reinstalled.

Same issue:

What's strange is that there is a src2pkg-helpers-1.0-x86_64-1.tgz package in the directory from which src2pkg was installed, but the setup procedure is trying to install using src2pkg-helpers-1.0.tar.bz2. So it's as if 'src2pkg --setup' is trying to install using the wrong src package ...

I can download the helpers install package which has the correct name, but I'd prefer to sort this out first.

Slackware :: Using Src2pkg To Build Svn Sources

May 25, 2010

What's the best way to use src2pkg to build sources checked out from svn?

Src2pkg expects a source tarball. But when you check out or export a program's code from svn you don't get a tarball. You just get a source directory.

Do I tar and gzip the directory? Or is there a way to skip that step?

Fedora :: Update Broke Library Links After Restart

I ran the automatic update today and it requested a restart afterwards. After the restart, I don't have any icons on my desktop, can't open windows other than the terminal. If I try to run software from the terminal, I get the following error.

/lib/ version 'GCC_4.2.0' not found (required by /usr/lib/
/lib/ version 'GCC_3.3' not found (required by /usr/lib/

I have seen "just removed the library with an issue" or recreate the links or try to reinstall. I am running fedora 12.

Ubuntu :: Auto Mount With PySDM - Drive Including Audio Library Is Gone

Jul 27, 2010

I wanted to auto mount one of my drives at the startup so I installed PySDM. After that every time I login to Ubuntu every single drive is mounted with a new name, for example one of my drives was located at /media/Local Disk and now it's /media/sda6, so every link to that drive including my audio library is gone. I unchecked the 'auto-mount at startup' option in PySDM and it didn't solve anything, I even uninstall PySDM and it everything is mounted as soon as Ubuntu starts up. The funny thing is there is a 10GB recovery drive on my hard disk that was never visible in Ubuntu and I was happy with that, but now it is mounted on startup too, with the name of sda1. What should I do?

Slackware :: Opera 10.60 Very Slow To Start New Links

Jul 8, 2010

I've been using Opera 10.11 on two different computer systems, two different locations (work & home), and two different Slackware versions (13 & 13.1 current). Opera 10.11 runs very quickly on both. After upgrading to Opera 10.60, I now find that linking to new web pages takes 5 to 10 seconds, but returning to a previous page is almost instantaneous.

I've tried installing 10.60 using slackbuilds and Opera's installer - both give the same results. I've since reverted to Opera 10.11. why it is so slow to open web pages? Opera 10.60 for Win7 works great, so what happened to the Linux version?

Slackware :: Thunderbird Links No Longer Working

Dec 24, 2010

So, approx 2 weeks ago, clicking on links in Thunderbird stopped working. There is no response in the browser whether it is open or not. I am able to paste the links to the browser just fine. Being congenitally lazy, I would rather just click them. I have upgraded to the latest version of Thunderbird and have the same issue. I have tried using Swiftfox, Firefox and Opera - all give the same non-response.

Am not getting any error messages, the links just do not open. Can't find any settings relevant to this issue.Any bright ideas out there?

Slackware :: Doesn't Seem To Support Ssl Connections - Links-2.3pre1-x86_64-1 And Ssl?

Mar 15, 2011

I am using slackware64-current. I have installed the package links-2.3pre1-x86_64-1 and I love it. I launch it from the command line with the "links -g" switch and it can display pictures, it's great, but it doesn't seem to support ssl connections.

Am i doing something wrong or do I need another build? I know that in the past there used to be two different binaries, is it still so? Where can I find a ssl-enabled binary for 64 bit without need to recompile?

Slackware :: Which GUI Library Works Best With Fluxbox

What is the best GUI development kit such as Qt, GTK or FLTK that is best fit for such an app? I mean what is the most stable, reliable and fast GUI development library that works best with Fluxbox?

Ubuntu :: Links Browser Script - Automatically Fills In The Credentials On The Links Login Page?

Dec 6, 2010

At my Uni, we use a web-based login for our internet connections. Its based off of Cisco, and every Wednesday night every computer on campus must re-enter their credentials to use the network.

Normally on my several computers I simply pull up the Terminal, point links to using


And enter my credentials when Cisco redirects to the login page.

Literally, the process is


Then ENTER to accept the redirect, down arrow to skip over the logo image, USERNAME, ENTER, PASSWORD, ENTER, ENTER.

Naturally, this is EXTREMELY time consuming, as I have about 5 computers located around campus and must physically walk to the machines and login every single week.

My question is, How would I formulate a program that does the following;

1) checks for connectivity (i.e. is able to reach/resolve to the greater part of the internet) and

2) automatically fills in the credentials on the links login page?

Programming :: Scripting : Change Markdown Links To Wikitext Links?

Feb 3, 2009

I have a personal wiki of notes, with now thousands of links in markdown format:

[link text](

but now that fckeditor is available for mediawiki (very beta), it has become much better to just stick with wikitext format. There are only a few conversions to do: tables, links, and bulleted lists. The lists are a fairly simple regex and fckeditor magically reformats the tables, so all I'm left with is the links. But I'm not a regex master. How do I reformat code...

Slackware :: Script To Detect Orphaned Libraries - Broken Lib Links - Missing Dependencies

Mar 9, 2010

My recent borked upgrade to -current inspired me to try to come up with a way to sanity-check the lib and bin dirs for broken library symlinks (possibly indicating missing libs) and for binaries and libraries that belong to no installed package, as well as missing dependencies.

This script is the result.

I've checked the script results manually, and it appears to be accurate, so I figured I'd post it here for a second opinion, and/or because others may find it useful too. I'm not aware of another popular method of doing this on Slackware, so here it is:

Slackware :: In Multilib Can The Same Library Be Installed Under Each Architecture

Feb 24, 2011

A certain program I use requires pango and gtkglext in 32 bit. I had already installed both of these in 64, and just now I downloaded .rpms for them in 32 bit and used rpm2tgz to turn them into .tgz files. The application i needed them for now works fine, but I'm wondering if installing precompiled packages like I did may mess with the 64 bit installs I already did, or if they can both be installed at the same time without any issues.

Slackware :: Running Multi For 32 Bit Support - Error Loading CURL Library

Jun 27, 2010

I'm running Slack 13.1 64 bit. I'd like to try running multi for 32 bit support so I can run a 32 bit version of firefox using the 32 bit flash plugin. Here's what I did: - followed Alien Bob's Wiki and download and installed all the *txz files. - installed a bunch of required libraries following the instructions on the Wiki - installed the 32 bit 10.1 version of the flash player plugin in $HOME/.mozilla/plugins/ - started the 32 bit 3.6.3 version of firefox; it seems to work fine. - go to about plugins and verify that Shockwave Flash ( is version 10.1 r53 and it is enabled. - run "ldd" and verified that all libraries are found. - run "ldd /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.3/firefox-bin" and verified all libraries are found. - go to [URL]... and click on "test your adobe flash player installation" I will get this error: Adobe Flash Player error: could not load cURL library - I verified (repeatedly) that I do have what I think is the correct package. How can I fix (or start debugging) this error?

Slackware :: Failure Building Multiple Apps Due To Missing Library Jscore?

Jan 26, 2011

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.

Slackware :: Texlive's Kpathsea And Cannot Find The Shared Library File - LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Oct 14, 2010

I recently installed a Slackware-13.1 32 bit system and I encountered an odd problem. I had a texlive-2010 package from, previously compiled on another 32 bit Slack-13.1 system. I just installed the precompiled package on the new system. However, whenever I tried to issue a latex command, kpathsea complained that it cannot find the shared library file I googled a bit and I found that this could be circumvented by setting the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH to "/usr/share/texmf/lib", where the library in question actually is.

This solved the problem. The weird thing is that on other machines I have installed, kpathsea had no issues whatsoever and I did not have to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH. The only difference is that on those systems I had compiled and installed texlive, not just installing a precompiled package. Could that be causing the issue?
