Slackware :: SBo SlackBuilds Fail At Make Install Under Latest

Mar 4, 2010

I'm running a clean install of the latest version of -current64.When I try to run a number of SlackBuilds from SBo, the scripts stop (no error) after the make install step.If I manually run all of the commands after make install, I get a fully functional package, and the program works with no problems.In looking as the logs, I don't see any errors during the configure, make, or make install steps.

I'm having problems with other scripts as well that are not XFCE related, but these are good examples. Another oddity is that the SlackBuild script for thunar-archive-plugin at works.I've never had any problems with these scripts before, and many other scripts still run just fine. I can't track down a common problem here.

Slackware :: Plan To Install SlackBuilds VirtualBox

Mar 9, 2011

I plan to install SlackBuild: virtualbox-ose (3.2.10) on my stand alone laptop.The following are excerpts from the SlackBuild Readme file and I was hoping that someone might have the time to clarify a few things:
"By default VirtualBox will be compiled with hardening enabled. That means all binaries will be run suid root, which is the default behaviour of upstream packages. However, you are still able to disable this by passing HARDENING=no to the script."Why would I want to do this? If I did want to do this, how do I pass 'HARDENING=no' to the script? What script?

Edit: I found something on this and see that I'll just include my user in the proper group and I should be ok.'To compile virtualbox without the Qt4 GUI pass QT4=no to the script'I have a package called: qt-4.6.2_2d3d3e5-i486-1 installed - does this mean that I have Qt4 installed?'To enable the webservice pass WEBSERVICE=yes to the script. This adds gsoap to the list of required dependencies.'Why would I want to do this? If I did want to do this, how do I pass 'WEBSERVICE=yes' to the script? Also, to do this I would have to install gsoap first, right?'If you want to attach VirtualBox to a VDE network you will need vde2.I don't need this for my stand alone world, right?This requires acpica, and the virtualbox-kernel package is needed at runtime.'Does this mean that VDE network requires acpica or that this SlackBuild require acpica?

Slackware :: Build Several Packages Designed For Slackware 13 At Slackbuilds?

Jan 24, 2010

I tried to build several packages designed for slackware 13 at slackbuilds. Those was a simple apps like ardour, audacity for example.


My CPU is AMD Phenom 9550 Quad core. It supports 64 bit. My os is slackware 13_64. What do I need to change in slackbuild to create a txz package for those apps?

Slackware :: Automatic SlackBuilds Installer

Jan 31, 2010

I have started to write a SlackBuilds installer, similar in spirit to slackpkg. So far it is only about 100 lines of code and it can search for a package and install it automatically from I doubt it will ever be as polished as slackpkg but it may be useful for some people. Maybe something like this already exists? If it does then I would like to check it out. If however this doesn't exist then I will most likely continue to develop my program. So far it is quite crude but it does install and search for packages.

Slackware :: Slackbuilds Leftover Files?

Feb 23, 2011

I am a big user of SlackBuilds. The question here is that under /var/lib/sbopkg/SBo/13.1/* there are a lot of files that seem to be un-needed. Can I safely remove these to reclaim some space or do they need to stay?
If they do need to stay, what do they do?

Slackware :: Why Don't We Have A Ports-like SlackBuilds Tree?

Jan 9, 2010

I think I've finally settled on Slackware, but I kept missing Arch or FreeBSD for some reason. Last night I realized it's the abs/ports systems they have. I love the freedom to rebuild any package from source so I can configure build options and not worry about how packages from third party sites were compiled (missing features, patent restrictions, etc.). is awesome, and according to that site Pat uses SlackBuilds to build the official packages. Wouldn't it be great if there was a /var/slackbuilds/ directory with subdirectories for each software set for the officially supported software and then a subdirectory for each category on would really like to see this in Slackware some time. It would help organize all the available software in the official sets and and make it easy to compile anything. Other software would, as usual, be downloaded from third-party sources and simply installed that way.

Slackware :: Building SlackBuilds KVM Does Not Work - Kernel

Oct 1, 2010

Since there was a lot of talk about virtualization I thought I try kvm -- before I used VirtualBox. I took the SlackBuild from and got an error with u8 as type in /usr/include/scsi/scsi.h. (sorry, I don't have the exact error message anymore..) I searched for its definition and I only found __u8 in /usr/include/linux/types.h. Then I searched the web and found a "fix" which says I have to change u8 from /usr/include/scsi/scsi.h to __u8. This problem was solved, but when I run the SlackBuild now it stops at some point and I don't know why. These are the last few lines of output:

CC arm-softmmu/translate.o
CC arm-softmmu/tcg/tcg.o
CC arm-softmmu/tcg/tcg-runtime.o
CC arm-softmmu/fpu/softfloat.o .....
LINK i386-softmmu/qemu
AR arm-softmmu/libqemu.a
LINK arm-softmmu/qemu-system-arm

I put an echo after the make for building kvm and I put an echo after "make install". None of them are printed.

Slackware :: Create SlackBuilds And Build Them Manually?

Apr 11, 2011

I'm using Slackware 13.1. There are some software I need that not presented in repos (e.g GIS software and utilities), so I create SlackBuilds and build them manually.

When compiling some libraries I get problems with libdl - the dynamic linker library. As I understand, this library absolutely required by some other libs.

For some odd reason, it seems that this library is automatically supported on other distros (e.g. Debian), but not on Slackware. As result ./configure script can't find necessary libs and fails with messages like

checking for sqlite3_prepare_v2 in -lsqlite3... no
configure: error: 'libsqlite3' is required but it doesn't seems to be
installed on this system.

Slackware :: Updating Scripts - Etiquette?

While prepping for 13.37, I was going through and noticed a lot of the packages I use are horribly out of date.

What is the etiquette for submitting an updated script? Just change the relevant details on the existing one and send it to them ordo I need to write a whole new script?

Slackware :: Quick Note On Broken Mrtg-2.15.2 From Slackbuilds?

Bareword "P_DETACH" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at /usr/bin/../lib/mrtg2/ line 1133.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/bin/mrtg line 89. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/mrtg line 89. As there's currently no newer version for mrtg on slackbuilds, i downloaded mrtg-2.17.0.tar.gz from oetiker's page and compiled it. Changing path in crontab and it works well.

Slackware :: Freenode, And Irssi: Slackbuilds For The Perl Modules?

Feb 8, 2010

With the latest Freenode changes SSL connection is now possible which presents no problem, particularly with rworkman's ca-certificates slackbuild, But configuring sasl for the password to nickserv presents a bit more of a challenge as 3 perl modules are required: Crypt::OpenSSL::Bignum, Crypt::DH, Crypt::Blowfish and Math::BigInt. I have not packaged perl modules for slackware before and I guess there is always a first time but can I ask if anybody has already neatly packaged up the required perl modules? I suspect they will be very popular with Freenode slackware irc users...

Slackware :: Iscan- Packages On SlackBuilds And EPSON Proprietary Scanners

May 13, 2011

This is deja vue but I'm stuck again with an EPSON Perfection 4180 scanner. This is one of those scanners that is supported by the epkowa sane drivers and requires specific firmware.

The SBo packages

Should make this scanner usable in slackware. I had this working on a slackware 13.1 (32 bit), now I am trying to get it going in slackware64 13.37.

The scanner is detected by sane-find-scanner:


And somewhat by scanimage -L:


However this fails to recognize the scanner model (which was ok in 13.1 32 bit) and then it also fails to work with scanning anything (scanimage, or xsane abort and the scanner never makes any noise).

I'm suspecting that there is some problem with the library contained in iscan-proprietary-drivers.

Since the last two weeks i`m looking for a method to work with the samsung scx 4x16f easy. Just printing something. Now it works fine. first you have to install "jbig" and "splix" from You will need cups and perhaps gutenprint, but in at the most installs of Slackware 13, i think it's included.

After that you have to connect printer and PC

# /etc/rc.d/rc.cups restart
and finally install the Samsung scx 4216f over http://localhost:631 CUPS Administration and choose the Samsung SCX-4200, SpliX V 2.0.0 driver.

Slackware :: Dead Items At - Default Source Tarball Is No Longer Accessible

Oct 6, 2010

Recenlty I installed sbopkg for maintaining slackbuilds scripts and I found it very useful. But there are some limitations coming from outdated repositories for older version of slackware. Eg. a tar ball with Maxima source maxima-18.1.... which is default in the repository for slack 12.2 doesn't exist at this moment. One can find older and newer versions. I understand that maintainers of slackbuild scripts are rather focused on recent slack version. Nevertheless such outdated entries should be somehow marked

in the way that a visitor will know that a default source tarball is no longer accessible. Maybe persons who submit the scripts should be responsible for keeping track for a sources. If that problem won't be solved it is a danger that will play only a role of some addons to the very recent slack release - but if this will be a case then simpler is to build say additional two or three DVD's of packages.

Slackware :: Compiling Large Slackbuilds - Error-message - Not Enough Space Left On Device

Aug 20, 2010

I am currently running slackware 12.2 on a 25 GB partition. I like to use slackbuilds, but when I try to compile larger tarballs (like abiword, or a patched version of Ghostscript as I did today) I receive an error-message: 'Not enough space left on device'. I think the size of the partition must be big enough (I never got this message when compiling with Linux From Scratch). I think it has something to do with the size of my /tmp directory, but I don't know how to fix this. Is there a way to solve the problem, so that I could be able to use slackbuild-scripts?
