Slackware :: Slack Won't Go To Sleep

May 2, 2011

When I try to put slackware to sleep or have it hibernate the system simply sits with a black screen. Normally it would do this for a short period of time immediately before the actual sleep state (screen powered off, croissant light on) is entered, but currently it does it indefinitely. My sleep USED to work just fine, it broke after some unclean shutdown or another, basically I just want to know what I can try resetting to try to get it back to normal.

Slackware64 13.1, running on thinkpad X61.

EDIT: Of course the second I make the post I think of trying to sleep/hibernate from the command line instead of through X/GDM (Gnome SlackBuild). That works.

Slackware :: Upgrading Slack From 13.1 To 13.37?

May 2, 2011

I have some doubts about the official Pat's upgrading procedure. In the UPGRADE.TXT file, one of the stepts says:

upgradepkg --install-new *.t?z What does --install-new mean? Pkgs I have no installed on my 13.1 will be installed on the 13.37 upgrade? For example, I did not installed KDE on 13.1. Will be installed when upgrade? - What about third party pkgs? Slacky,, compiled by myself. Should I remove them before upgrading slack?

Slackware :: Armed Slack On Tonidoplug?

Mar 21, 2011

Has anyone here succeeded in getting armed slack running on a consumer kirkwood device .ie. one without serial console? I have a tonido plug that I want to liberate. By default the plug boots first from the external usb, so I would only need to set up / on the first partition. I would be very interested to know if someone had managed to install slack to the internal nand without bricking it.

Slackware :: Creative Zen Not Recognized In Slack 13?

Mar 18, 2010

my problem, I have Slackware 13 dual booted with vista on a dell 1545 2 ghz 2gig ram. to these forums I have gotten everything working except my creative zen vision M 30g. I have tried alll the suggestions posted here and other places on the net. Here is my output from lsusb.

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 002: ID 046d:c018 Logitech, Inc. Optical Wheel Mouse
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub


any way i can transfer files back and forth to this would be great since it does not work in vista either. and I am pretty sure 99.9% that I have all the libmtp, libnjb, and whatever other libs are needed installed but in gnomad it says no devices found on USB hub. I hope this is enough info and someone out there has the trick or maybe I am missing something obvious.

May 31, 2011

I installed slackware on my laptop last night, :-) very happy. Can't wait to learn more about linux and even computers in general.

And now i'd like to get some updates and stuff, but i need to use my mobile broadband. It's a telsta dongle If that changes the circumstances. How would i go about setting this up?

Slackware :: PXE Boot With PfSense And Slack?

Sep 4, 2010

I am trying to setup a PXE booting environment in my network and I almost got it to work... Only it does not quite work yet... Basically, I want my laptop or any other machines to boot from my network. I followed the instructions from AlienBob to do so. I setup my laptop to boot from the NIC, it automatically gets an IP from the DHCP server (pfSense);

I setup my gateway/DHCP server (pfSense) as is: -The IP address from the network boot server: (the server where my slackware mirror and all tftp boot files are) -The filename used for network booting: /mnt/it-maintenance/tftpboot/slackware-13.1/pxelinux.0 (the absolute address of pxelinux.0 in my server)

I setup the network boot server (running slack 13.1) as is: -uncommented the line in inetd.conf to have:

tftp dgram udp wait root /usr/sbin/in.tftpd in.tftpd -s /tftpboot -r blksize
-added a NFS share to /etc/exports to have:

Slackware :: SeaMonkey 2 Not Working On Slack 12.2

Dec 24, 2009

I am having problems getting Seamonkey 2 and to run on Slackware 12.2. I have tried the packages for 12.2 in patches/packages/ and the package from the seamonkey website, both with identical results. Seamonkey appears to start, and does appear in the process list, however no windows appear and it uses little memory and no CPU cycles. No messages appear in the console if I start it from there. I have to kill the processes (seamonkey , run-mozilla and seamonkey-bin). I have tried removing my Seamonkey profile, with the same results.

If I try to build the slackbuild I get this error:
checking for cairo >= 1.8.8 freetype2 fontconfig... Requested 'cairo >= 1.8.8' but version of cairo is 1.6.4
configure: error: Library requirements (cairo >= 1.8.8 freetype2 fontconfig) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
configure: error: ./configure failed for mozilla
/usr/bin/gmake -C mozilla default
gmake[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/comm-1.9.1/mozilla'
gmake[1]: *** No rule to make target `default'. Stop.
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/comm-1.9.1/mozilla'
make: *** [default] Error 2

The version of Cairo I am running is the standard Slackware 12.2 version cairo-1.6.4-i486-1.tgz, which to my knowledge, has never been updated (there is nothing in /patches/packages for it, anyway).

Slackware :: Slack Dependent On Lilo?

May 4, 2010

I understand that making any changes wrt to kernel on Slackware one has to rerun Lilo. If an install was made onto a disk already using other distros and Grub and wanting to keep Grub, do I still need to install Lilo?I believe that one could use the 'chainloader' entry in Grub to boot the Slackware. And Lilo can be installed to its own / root partition.I suppose really what I'm asking is Slackware totally dependent on Lilo?

Slackware :: Slimming Down Slack 13.37 Installation?

May 1, 2011

I would like to say that I am very pleased with it. It has been easy and simple setting up. That being said, I am in a little bit of a bind. I installed Slack on an old laptop to test it out. I installed everything except for KDE and the various video drivers associated with X that I knew I didnt need. I am wanting to now install Slack on my usual laptop to be dual booted with Windows 7. However, I still need to keep most of the hard drive space in the Windows partition, so I am limited with the amount of disk space that I can give to Slack.

My test installation is about 4.5GB. I want to have as much space available for my files as possible and not for the operating system. My necessities as far as my packages go are X, firefox, flash, java. Any window manager will do. What would you guys suggest as far as trimming down my installation? below 2-3GB would be good, any lower would be best.

Slackware :: Upgrade To The Kernel > 2.6.29 On Slack 12.2

May 5, 2010

can I upgrade the kernel on my slack 12.2 to the version 2.6.29 or higher?I need the kernel must support the KMS mechanism.Why I need KMS? I want to define virtual screen of size greater than 2048 x 2048. Why I need so huge virtual screen?To run two-display configuration on my dual-head Intel graphic card. At the moment I can set max 2048 x 2048 virtual screen which is not enough for my two displays:LCD of notebook has 1400 x 1050 resolution, and external LCD panel 1280 x 1024. At this moment a part of desktop is on both displays. Small part but causes some problems, and at this moment only awesome (really awesome) window manager can handle this configuration.

Slackware :: Xdvi Configurations In Slack?

Jan 7, 2010

Simple (I hope) problem here, my xdvi configuration is wacky. It never shows the entire page, cuts off the left side of text. This happened after having to shut the program down a few times due to it hating me.

In any case, the root configuration file works perfectly, so I was wondering if someone knew how to

a) reset user configuration for xdvi to defaults, or

b) copy root configuration over to user.
