Slackware :: Any Kind Of Package Manager / Slap-get / Sbopkg For Slackware ARM?

Feb 13, 2011

I am very happy to announce that today I succeeded to install full Slackware ARM on the pandaboard: URL...I did the following:

* sd with 2 partitions, one (vfat) for bootloaders (MLO, u-boot.bin) and uImage and the other one (ext2) for minirootfs
* copy xloader (MLO), uboot and uImage from Angstrom distro on the first partition
* copy Slackware ARM minirootfs on the second partition with Angstrom modules in the usual path (/lib/modules/...)
* boot in ARMedslack
* install all the others packages via NFS

I had to make some changes to configuration files as indicated here:URL...The next step is to build a kernel and modules for omap4 by myself and use them instead of the Angstrom ones.One question: is there any kind of package manager, such as slap-get, sbopkg, etc. for Slackware ARM? If not, can I use the SlackBuilds from How to modify them?

Slackware :: SBopkg Queues Git Download?

Jun 4, 2011

Anyone know of the simple (!) command syntax to : a) download the full SQF tree from [URl].. b) maintain that tree WITHOUT having to download the whole dang thing again.

I'm 100% certain this is possible - that's exactly what source-code repository tools like subversion and git are supposed to do. But Git is complex and that site doesn't seem to have an obvious (to me) method of doing part b)

Slackware :: Dzen2 Won't Download With Sbopkg

Mar 29, 2010

I was very happy to see that dzen2 is now available on because now I can use XMonad to its fullest. Unfortunately, sbopkg is not able to download the source code for dzen2. This is probably because the source is hosted on Google Code, which requires the user to click a second download link for some reason. I downloaded the source and the SlackBuild manually and installed dzen2 that way, and that worked perfectly, but I would really prefer to have sbopkg manage updates for me. Is there any way I could get this working? Perhaps I could just download the source manually, place it in the appropriate directory, and let sbopkg build it and manage updates, but I don't know which directory the source would go in or if this would even work.

Here is the link to the page for dzen2: [URL]

Slackware :: Build A Complete Optimized Using Sbopkg?

Mar 27, 2011

Just a question out of curiosity: Is there a build-queue that can be used with sbopkg to build a complete Slackware repository from scratch?Just asking, because the 32 bit version of Slackware is suited to run on older computers by compiling for i486 architecture. I want to know if it is possible to rebuild the complete repository with optimizations for newer architectures, so that the programs can make use of the features of newer processors, like MMX, SSE and so on.

Slackware :: Dount On Queue Files And Sbopkg?

Jul 1, 2011

I have a doubt wrt to installing "Q" files . I have cloned a repo from git ..Yesterday I tried to install Libre office using sbopkg..It began with the download and gave an error asking me to retry/abort or continue with the build due to some missing package..I presently have a folder "queues" in /var/lib/sbopkg..I also downloaded another repo and placed it another folder. The problem is that in SBOpkg it is picking up only from the queue folder in /var/lib/SBOpkg/Queues. I dont know how to point to the other folder in /home/downloads/queues/ (the second repo)..I thought of trying this as neither slackbuild or the first repo is working for installing libre office..The internet connectivity is ok!

I tried three times, by removing /var/cache/sbopkg/install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz then start sbopkg again.

EDIT: I went to, downloaded flashplayer from there, and checked the md5sum. Still the same of course.

Slackware :: Updated The Packages Installed Via Sbopkg?

Jul 18, 2011

I am really enjoying recently slackware. Using slackpkg and sbopkg it is so easy to keep slackware running current. Sometimes I feel like a master of Linux, which is absolutely no true. Apart of some objectives I have regarding slackware's philosophy, I have this question please. I have about 8 packages installed via sbopkg. my question.

1)Is there a way to keep these packages updated via a program? (If not I guess I am obliged to check manually for each of them.) 2) Also, sometimes when we build a package via sbopkg it is necessary to build other packages. Is there an option to install via sbopkg and the package and its dependencies required through just one command?

Slackware :: Sbopkg - B0rked By Bash Upgrade In - Current?

Mar 3, 2010

I recently upgraded my -current box, and now when I try to run sbopkg I get the exact error described in the following thread:[URL].. The error fwiw is as follows:

root@catbutt:~# sbopkg
sbopkg: Invalid repository descriptor
SBo 13.0 "SBo repository for Slackware 13.0" _SBo rsync GPG
specifies an unknown fetching tool (rsync).

seems likely given the discussion in that previous thread that the bash upgrade (to 4.1.002) in the recent -current onslaught is responsible?

Slackware :: Error Compiling Blood Frontier Using Sbopkg?

I'm having a problem compiling Blood Frontier on Slackware64-current. I believe this problem is also related to why I can't use make xconfig as well. Here is a bit of the error.

Slackware :: SBOPKG Errors Viewing Obsolete Source Cache

Apr 10, 2010

I'm doing a bit of housekeeping and tidying up of programs I no longer need/use, and as some of these were installed using sbopkg I thought I would also tidy those. However when attempting to view obsolete sources via the utilities sub-menu, sbopkg seems to crash to a cli interface from the ncurses one and spews continuously the error below. This thern continues until I CTRL+C the process which of course then leaves the sbopkg pid file still showing active in /var/run. Anyone else come across this, and a possible way to prevent it.

/usr/sbin/sbopkg: cannot make pipe for command substitution: Too many open files
stty: standard input: Bad file descriptor
/usr/sbin/sbopkg: line 569: read: read error: 0: Bad file descriptor

Slackware :: Sbopkg - How To Install Svn Versions Of X264 - Ffmpeg - Mplayer ?

Jan 29, 2010

How users to install the latest svn versions of x264, ffmpeg and mplayer. Primarily, this is important for users who rip movies from dvds.

How do I perform the same tasks using sbopkg? I believe some compilation options must be changed to reflect the svn changes.

Has anyone done this before? Are the steps important when using slackware 13 x86_64?

Slackware :: Unable To Excludes.txt And

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 :: Can't Make Local Mirror Of Slackware

Sep 10, 2010

I have done several attempts to build a local mirror of Salckware 13.0. There are two problems: I have to wait very long for a connection, they appear error during a connection which broke it so I have to restart. Is there any other way to build mirror? I am using Alien Bob scripts. Never before happened something like that. The connections with common web pages (google, etc) work well. Maybe I should look for some other mirror than those listed in

Slackware :: Mirror Two Monitors With NVIDIA?

Feb 23, 2010

I have been playing around a bit today and decided to hook my tv up to my slack box. I have an NVIDIA gt220 using the proprietary drivers which supports multiple monitors and I can get various setups like an extended desktop and xinerama, but what I can not seem to do, and what I'd actually like to do, is just have both the monitor and the TV display the same images. If it would work better/easier I also have a second NVIDIA card, although it is a different model. I haven't bothered trying that yet as it seems like it would be easier to configure one card instead of two.

Slackware :: Command To Create Local Mirror Of Alien Bob's Kde4.4.0 Packages?

Feb 10, 2010

I know there has to be an easier way to do this than to download each file individually. On an ftp site I would just use
PHP Code...

But with those files being on an HTTP server and wget not supporting HTTP file globbing I'm at a loss.

What is a one step method to recursively download all files in a directory on an HTTP server?

Programming :: SourceForge Vs GitHub

Aug 25, 2010

Which is better for my needs? how to use Git and I like it and don't think I'd want to use anything else.

I like the way SourceForge lets your project have it's own website. But all those "Unix names" are taken and I don't like the idea of having to give my project a terrible name because everything is taken.

Also, I keep hearing the way people say GitHub is so great, but what *are* those advantages?

Ubuntu :: StarDict Thesaurus Location On Sourceforge?

I just installed StarDict and so far I love it.I got it from the repos and then installed a dictionary from here, where their site directed me: http:[url]....I went back to their site to look for a thesaurus and found one on this page:

When you click on the tarball link for "Moby Thesaurus II" it takes you to a sourceforge page with many different versions of StarDict itself, and not the dictionary/thesaurus package.tell me if I'm just missing it on the sourceforge page, or does anyone know a place to download a good thesaurus for StarDict?

Fedora :: Use Local Mirror For Yum - Set No Proxy For Local Mirror?

Jan 9, 2010

I'm using f12. My university has recently become a mirror for fedora packages. But i'm facing a trivial problem. I have set proxy for yum so that the packages that are not available on local mirror can be downloaded from other mirrors. But then i don't know how to set no proxy for my local server. Consequently it is not using my local mirror at all. Tell me how to set no proxy for the local mirror. I want my local mirror because it's damn fast. My proxy settings are like this (they go in /etc/yum.conf):
