Slackware :: Directory Location Of A Slackbuild Installpkg ?

Feb 3, 2010

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 :: Slackware Current Installpkg Line 59 Rev Command Not Found

Feb 28, 2011

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 :: Cannot Run Installpkg And PKGtool As Normal User

Mar 24, 2011

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 :: Why Is There No Slackbuild For 13.1

Jul 5, 2010

I am going to try out a tiling wm and I have narrowed my search down to scrotwm and dwm. I installed scrotwm from 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 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?

Slackware :: No Wine Slackbuild For 13.1?

Jun 6, 2010

As always, very impressive effort from 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 ?

Slackware :: A Slackbuild Killed Permissions?

May 2, 2010

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?

Slackware :: Get OpenShot SBo Slackbuild To Work?

Feb 20, 2010

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.

Oct 2, 2010

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:

Slackware :: FBReader Slackbuild Fails ?

Apr 8, 2011

I have the latest fbreader.Slackbuild via sbopkg. The compilation steps seem to run OK until, if I understand this correctly, it starts work on libzlcore, at which point things go wrong :



The README says I will need liblinebreak, which I "Slackbuilt" with no problems.

Slackware :: Fbreader.SlackBuild Uses /usr/lib In X86_64

Jan 13, 2010

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.

I used UI=gtk if it matters.

Slackware :: KDE 4.4.4 Builds Fine With 4.4.3 Slackbuild?

Jun 2, 2010

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.

Slackware :: Install The HandBrake Slackbuild?

Dec 23, 2010

I was trying to install the HandBrake slackbuild. It gave me an error saying it needed webkit, so I check for it in, 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?

Slackware :: Openoffice Slackbuild Installs But Won't Run?

May 13, 2010

I downloaded the slackbuilds files, extracted them, added the original source, ran chmod +x, ran ./, 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 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.

Slackware :: Where Do Slackbuild Scripts Put All Their Stuff?

Apr 13, 2010

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.
