Feb 21, 2011

i just updated my slackware to current, and every time i try to log in in my kde session my desktop is upside down.i mean literally everything is upside down, the only way i can have a usable desktop is with the "fail-safe session" of kde option on kdm which is what i'm using right now.does anybody know how can i solve this?i would post a snapshot of the upside down desktop but i can't do anything when i'm using it. fonts, windows, panels, icons everything is upside down..i solved this, just reinstalled the nvidia drivers and everything is goood again

Slackware :: Current Can't Log Into KDE 4.5.4 With Desktop Effects Enabled

Dec 21, 2010

I updated to latest -current last night and since then have not been able to login to my KDE desktop. After typing in the password, I get the starter icons come up, and just as the last one comes up, the desktop logs out to the login screen again. I worked out that it was because desktop effects were enabled - disabling these in kwinrc allows me to login, although without desktop effects.Using NVidia 256.53 binary drivers b.t.w.

Slackware :: Image / Icon Trouble After Slackware-current Upgrade

Jan 22, 2010

I recently upgraded to slackware-current from Slackware 13 via slackroll, and have only encountered one problem. My file manager no longer thumbnails images, and icons (mostly PNG) aren't appearing no matter what GTK theme is set. Running from the command line produces no errors, and when brought up in something else (say feh /path/to/icon.png) it works perfectly. This is the only hitch I have encountered so far. The same thing happens with emoticons in Pidgin. Does anyone know of a fix?

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 :: Graphics Not Loading After Upgrading To Slackware-Current

Feb 26, 2011

I've upgraded Slackware-13.1 I had installed to Slackware-Current using a local tree I had download with script, but when I rebooted I could not get the graphics to load. I think it's because I've also modified /etc/groups and add an username after audio: and video: group, but I forgot that and had to remove slackware from the machine.

Slackware :: How Should Proprietary ATI Driver Be Installed On Slackware Current 64-bit?

May 15, 2010

I've tried a few different ways to install the ATI graphics driver "fglrx" to get 3D acceleration.If I try to install using the standard file "" from the ATI web site it appears to work but then I discover it actually got an error.I saw a reference to ATI requiring 32-bit libraries to install their 64-bit driver. Is there a link or post that explains how to add the 32-bit libraries. Will that solve the problem, or will I just waste more time trying that?

Slackware :: Unable To Excludes.txt And

Feb 1, 2011

I use Alien Bob's with an excludes.txt to only download the parts of current that I want. Unfortunately it is not working for part of the exclude.txt file and I am at a loss to know why.

The excludes.txt is




This ignores e/ f/ y/ testing/ pasture/ source/ and usb-and-pxe-installers/ It also ignores most of kdei/ and /extra It is meant to ignore most of extra/source and just download the source for flash-player-plugin, but it is ignoring all of extra/source/, however the same syntax is working for kdei/ and extra/.

Slackware :: Slackware Current Freezes At Splash Screen / Fix It?

Mar 16, 2011

I have been using slackware since version 10.1 and really like it. I have never had a problem until lately, version 13.1 has been stable as a rock for me. The first 2 or 3 updates to current ran well but then the problem started. After installation Slackware would get to the splash screen and bring up the first picture of a disk drive then just hang and never go any further. I do have a good burn on the dvd, have checked the md5 and burned at 4x. then slack 13.37 does the same thing. this is on 4 different computers with several different video boards.

Slackware :: Chatzilla Add-on In Seamonkey In Slackware-current?

Mar 22, 2011

This is not an earth-shattering issue, but, something I've recently noticed with the Chatzilla add-on for Seamonkey in Slackware-current. Maybe it is just my problem.If I add Chatzilla to FF 4.0 everything works as expected, that is, when I launch Chatzilla the default start-up window shows up with a list of IRC servers to click on (freenode being my favourite).

However,when I click on Chatzilla in Seamonkey I get a blank window that shows up, there is no server list. I noticed that the window in Chatzilla went blank for Seamonkey recently after a -current update (maybe a library issue?)

Slackware :: Building Mumble 1.2.2 On Slackware - Current 64?

Slackware :: How To Do A 'fresh Install' Using Slackware -current

Mar 25, 2011

I wish to do a fresh install of Slackware without KDE. I could use my Slackware 13.1 DVD but I thought, why not give -current at try? Is there a -current ISO or must I install 13.1, without KDE, and then upgrade to -current? Or, is it possible to remove 'all things KDE' and then upgrade to -current?

Slackware :: Take Current Windows7 (x64) Setup And Make It Into A Dual-boot Setup With Slackware 13.0?

Jan 24, 2010

I'm trying to take my current windows7 (x64) setup and make it into a dual-boot setup with slackware 13.0 (x32) and am hitting a brickwall. I guess I would like to know if I can salvage the situation without formating my windows drive. I fully intend to, but I had hoped to not do it this month. I'd like to get dual boot going so I can master it and acquire all the files/drivers I'll want and then format and do it 100% right next time.

Currently I have windows setup on a 3x 500gb Raid0 onboard array which itself has been flawless. After I shrunk my current partition size to give me about 25gb of free space I proceeded to setup Linux, and I was unable to perform the cfdisk portion for partitioning the array for Linux.

I tried using cfdisk:
/dev/hdx (a1-a3,b1-b3)
/dev/sdx (a1-a3,b1-b3)

I even attempted to locate with: cat proc/partition and tried using cfdisk on every device it located. It always said it was either an unknown partition table and should I start at zero, or bad partition. I was of course too concerned over my windows setup (which has almost 1tb of stuff I have not backed up) to go any further into the unknown.

PS: I have used Slackware before, back at 8.1, 10, and even a very brief interlude at 12.0, this is my first attempt on this computer however with 13.0, it is currently running fine on my laptop and my PS3 (Laptop is even dual booting 7/Slack13. Albeit without raid)

Phenom 9850
M2N-SLI Deluxe (Nvidia AM2)

Slackware :: Booting Current And 64-13.1 From DVD?

Oct 18, 2010

I saw that /isolinux / kernel was updated in current. So I thought time to give it a try.
My installition and computer stops after

Parsing Elf OK
Booting Kernel

This seems to happen because the kernel or initrd.img is being overwritten. I solved this in 13.1 with PV's help by inserting the /isolinux and /kernel directory from 13.0 into the 13.1 files before running growisofs.I have again tried all the other suggestions from my previous post with 64-13.1. no success only using isolinux from 13.0 works I am running the current kernel on my main system since the day it was put on this was my previous thread on this problem


would love to hear some suggestions on this as I just assumed it would be solved for 13.2 or whatever is next where to find the source for the initrd.img used in /isolinux.Possible the rest of the boot source would help. I have been trying to decode what happens on the DVD boot. Looked at arch/x86/boot/compressed/

Slackware :: 64-current - After The Big One - Multi-lib ?

Mar 6, 2010

Well this pretty much sums up the experience with Slackware current these days. This is not to say it was all plain sailing. So what problems were there?

1) Nvidia drivers did not work, this was fixed by re-compiling the kernel modules and installing a patched or beta driver, but it introduced another fault. However this problem cannot be accredited to Slackware, all operating systems have driver problems after being updated. Nvidia however had a new version out in a couple of days, which completely fixed the problem.

2) The problem introduced by the hacked fix of the older Nvidia driver wouldn't allow me to switch to the generic kernel (it would not create a valid initrd.gz). I think this was because of re-compiling the kernel modules, so I re-installed them and the problem was fixed. Again not a Slackware fault but a samac fault.

3) Program A couldn't find library B. Slackware has moved some libraries from e2fsprogs to util-linux-ng. This may cause some stuff to break if you are using the multi-lib extensions. This was fixed by creating a compat32 package for util-linux-ng. Again not actually Slackwares fault, but a little closer to home. Alien Bob could you update the please.

That's it so far, after an update that ran to over 500 lines in the change log, an updated kernel, updated glibc, updates X server etc. etc. and three paltry problems none of which could be attributed to Slackware directly.

I just made a current iso and installed current and when I tried to start X the screen was washed out in a rainbow kaleidoscope pattern. I exited out and ran xorgset and Xorg -configure. Both of these hardlocked my system.

BTW Im using a geforce 8800GT. i tried installed the nvidia driver but it still locks when I run xorgsetup.

I have to go to work, so I will post the logs when I get home

Slackware :: Alien's Vlc, -current And SBo's Libva?

Oct 27, 2010

I want to let vlc take use of my Intel HD's H264 hardware decoder. I installed libva with the SlackBuild from SBo. But Alien said libva should match the version vlc built with. So I decided rebuild vlc with new libva.So I changed the LIBVA to 0.31.1-1+sds4 and added --enable-i965-driver to libva's configure. Building was fine but when I opened a flash video(h264) it said that I don't have h264 plugin and refused to continue. After I changed the version number back, vlc can play h264 again.As a compromise, I comment out make_libva in the building phase. All things went well then. It won't consume too much CPU even when play large h264 So what is wrong with new libva? I noticed vlc 1.1.4 was released, but I think Alien is more qualified to bump the version. So I didn't change that.
