Slackware :: Qt Creator 2 Installation Requests Some Lib***-dev Packages?

Nov 2, 2010

I'm installing the qt creator v2 IDE on slackware-current.Installation went smooth but I saw this message:Quote:External DependenciesAdditional development packages requiredApart from a C++ compiler, a number of development libraries need to be presentto enable Qt Creator to build your Qt applications. On Debian and Ubuntu, usethe following command in a terminal to make sure they are installed:sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev libSM-dev libxrender-devlibfontconfig1-dev libxext-devIf you're using QtOpenGL, you'll also need OpenGL development files. You can usethe following command to find out which packages to install: sudo apt-get install libgl-dev libglu-devPress [Enter] to continue :The question is. SHOULD I CARE ? abit more analytically: Does Debian separate development related files and creates those lib***-dev packages or I should get these packages and try to install them in slackware too

Slackware :: Installation User Scripts To Custom Packages Selection

Apr 19, 2011

First time posting here, sort of long time slacker with some gaps in between... Anyway, I have a sort of question/feature request. First of all, I fully understand the KISS philosophy from Slackware. Story: I co-worker of my was looking for a Linux distro to install into a VM that he would be able to carry around in an USB memory from work to home. I suggested for him to try slackware. However, he has a limitation of ~2gb to the installation size, and he doesn't need most of the packages. With this in mind, I helped him select the more relevants one, but it was a pain to make an installation that both works AND attends the 2gb maximum limitation.

From that experience, and also having in mind the KISS philosophy from Slackware, comes my question/sugestion: why not provide an install option like "Custom Packages Script", that will load a single script file from a USB/mounted partition and install pre-selected packages that a person has selected and build the script from? This would allow anyone to build a custom Slackware installation and share it with the community.

Slackware :: Static Libraries - Why Aren't They Shipped In Official Slackware Packages

Aug 12, 2010

I noticed that the official Slackware packages don't contain static libraries. The SlackBuild scripts from or from Slackware DVD usually contain --disable-static option to prevent building the .a file. And if configure script doesn't allow such option, the .a file is deleted before the package is created.I am wondering what is the reason for that? Is it just the matter of conserving disk space? Are there also other reasons?

Fedora Installation :: Preupgrade Leftover Packages - 176 F13 Packages Remaining

Nov 17, 2010

I recently upgraded from F13 to F14 using "preupgrade". This is the first time I've used preupgrade. So far, F14 is running OK. There are some leftovers from F13 and I'm wondering if this is correct.

Q1: There are 176 F13 packages remaining. [alfrugal@localhost Documents]$ rpm -qa | grep fc13 | wc -l 176 Is this OK? FWIW, after the upgrade, I ran "package-cleanup --orphans" as recommended by the "preupgrade" page on the Fedora Project wiki.

Q2: Also, my GRUB menu was correctly updated for F14, but it still contains the three entries it had for F13. Is it normal for the preupgrade process to require the user to clean up the obsolete entries from the GRUB menu?

Slackware :: Missing Lua In Dev Packages?

Sep 30, 2010

just curious if there was some discussion about reasons (not)-including Lua in stock Slackware packages ? IMHO it perfectly fits to distro's KISS philosophy, is very small and packaging maintenance is very easy (only glibc dependency, simple compilation and installation proces). Slackware contains programming language implementations of Common Lisp, Guile Scheme, Ada 95 which I find more exotic then Lua in these days. I know there are some histroical reasons and keeping continuity but anyway ...

Apr 14, 2010

I know this type of upgrade question is asked regularly so I apologise in advance if its annoying.

Im currently running 12.2, and Im wondering when 13.1 may be available? have there been many problems with 13.0? I've been working quite alot so havent been checking in that often lately.

also, would my old .tgz packages work with 13.1, or would I need to rebuild them as .txz?

Slackware :: Short Downloadscript For Packages

Apr 28, 2011

I'm using a short script when I download the Slackware-(current) packages.

Since it works for me I want to share it. I've added a configurationfile, so anyone can adapt it to his/her requirements.

Note: I don't want to prevent anyone from buying the official DVD, but maybe you'll find it usefull to download the packages when performing a fresh install of current.

Advantage of the script is that one has less downloadsize and one can exclude package-series from downloading (in the conf-file).

Here is the configfile, it has to be saved as "getslack.conf" in the same directory as the script.


For the installation I use the bootable usb-image or create a minimal install-CD (CD1 without any packages) like here explained.

Slackware :: Exotic Fonts Packages?

Jun 25, 2011

I'm trying to identify - and eventually uninstall - exotic fonts packages, but unfortunately, the package names in the X group - as well as their descriptions - are not always very helpful.

I'd like to uninstall every font that's not needed to write in either french, german or english, that is: arab, asian, greek and cyrillic fonts, plus the odd exotic font I haven't thought of.

The reason I'm doing this is not some sort of xenophobia on my behalf, but the simple fact that the LibreOffice font selector is quite crowded when all the font packages are installed. Since the desktops I install are primarily used by folks who freshly migrate from Microsoft windows, I've found that a mix of standard latin fonts plus the webfonts (XP + Vista) fonts package from SBo is the most popular solution. At least, that's what I did until now when installing other Linux distributions.

Slackware :: Installing Packages (bittornado) In /usr Dir?

May 13, 2010

I installed Slackware 13 last night and have been trying to get bittornado to properly work. Some background info, I have my partitions set up as follows:

Partition 1: /
Partition 2: /usr/local
Partition 3: /home
Partition 4: swap

I unzipped the tar.gz file and made a package using makepkg, and then installed it. Afterwords, trying to run "btlaunchmanycurses" or "" doesn't do anything. Further examining shows me that it installed the package to my / directory. Shouldn't packages be installed somewhere in my /usr dir? I'm new to linux, I spent some time with it a couple years ago but haven't done anything since.
