Slackware :: Script Which Will Take Patches Subdirectory Of Latest Slackware Distribution

Jan 10, 2011

Is there a script which will take the patches subdirectory of the latest Slackware distribution tree, and substitute the new patch txz files for the ones in the slackware subdirectory so that during an ISO install, the latest txz will be used, instead, and the ISO will be minimized by not having the older ones?

Slackware :: Best Practice In Partitioning - 320 GB Space Distribution

Apr 9, 2011

I am new to Slackware but I'm a bit familiar with Ubuntu. I normally partition my ubuntu using /swap, /root and /home. In ubuntu it is recommended to separate /home and /root partitions so that later on if something to be changed in the system we just need to apply on that /root without affecting our old data in /home. Is it the same way in Slackware applied? If so, is it the same as having /swap, /root and /home partitions as well? Can anyone suggest for the harddisk distribution of my 320GB space..

Slackware :: What's Latest With Madwifi?

Jul 26, 2010

I'm in the process of installing Slackware 13.1 on my old IBM A22m laptop.Since version 12, I've used WPA_supplicant and the Madwifi drive to set up my wireless connection (using a PCMCIA D-Link card). It has worked great all along, up through Slackware 13.However, I've noticed that Alien Bob's Madwifi instructions and repository do not have builds or packages for Madwifi beyond Slackware 12.2.

I think I simply built the drive in 13 by modifying the slackbuild for 12.2.Anyway, what's the latest/best way to set up wireless with an Atheros chipset? Are there Madwifi packages available for Slackware 13.1?

Ubuntu Networking :: Running 9.10 (i386) With Latest Patches From Update Manager

I'm having problems installing Cowpatty

running make produces

Running Ubuntu 9.10 (i386) with latest patches from update manager. If I try using the 4.2 archive I get the same result.

I have similar problems with aircrack-ng suite, but I'll leave that until later!

Slackware :: Getting Exception 13 When Use The Latest Qemu-kvm-0.12.3 On 12.2?

Mar 8, 2010

I'm getting exception 13 when trying to use the latest qemu-kvm-0.12.3 on slackware 12.2 w/ stock kernel:


exception 13 (6b)
rax 0000000000000010 rbx 0000000000008c00 rcx 0000000000006ebe rdx 00000000000c8c00
rsi 00000000f2010000 rdi 00000000000c0000 rsp 0000000000006eb4 rbp 00000000f2010000


Google says this has something to do with Intel hardware and the way it handles real mode. run it with -no-kvm, but that's not much of a fix really.. so in the mean time I reverted to using qemu-kvm-devel-88 which works well, but is pretty old.

Slackware :: Flaw In Latest Kernel Upgrades?

Sep 22, 2010

Just installed the latest kernel upgrades, rebooted, fired up KDE and got this message: "KDE detected that one or more internal sound devices were removed. Do you want KDE to permanently forget about these devices? The list of the devices KDE thinks can be removed: Capture: HDA Intel (AD198x Analog) Output: HDA Intel (AD198x Analog) Output: HDA Intel (AD198x Digital)"

It then asked, "yes, cancel, manage devices." When I clicked on "manage" it showed Esound as the only device, but it didn't work. So, was something was left out when the packages were compiled?

Slackware :: Latest Xorg-server Update ?

Sep 6, 2010

What a difference, using fglrx, this is like a new computer with this latest update. It runs a bit colder, flashplayer video actually goes all the way to the edge in fullscreen mode and no hardlocks yet (the kind with a blinking capslock light). Maybe fglrx isn't the only bad app in the village after all.

Slackware :: Updating To Latest Root CA Certificates In 13.37

Jul 17, 2011

After installing Slackware 13.37 I've noticed that while when in the Xwindows environment inside the mozilla firefox I can surf freely I cannot use wget with the same freedom.

I get the following error with wget:
wget [URL]
--2011-07-17 10:54:58--[URL]
Resolving (,
Connecting to (||:443... connected.
ERROR: cannot verify's certificate, issued by "/C=US/ST=Arizona/L=Scottsdale/, Inc./OU=[URL]": Unable to locally verify the issuer's authority. To connect to insecurely, use '--no-check-certificate'.

How do I update the machine to use the latest root ca's I have downloaded and manually installed ca-certificates_20110502.tar.gz but it still refuse to work with wget. How can I install the root ca so it will accept ssl when using wget?

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 :: Skype Not Working With Latest Util-linux?

May 19, 2010

I've found that my skype stopped working with recent -current updates ( around beta ... ). It was looking for a library - on checking I found the 64-bit version but no 32-bit version - quite strange as this has been working fine since my original slackware64 13.0 installation. Anyhow, I got the 32-bit util-linux package, did the 32-bit package convert thing and skype is now working:

1. convertpkg-compat32 -i util-linux-ng-2.17.2-i486-1.txz
2. un-archive
3. copy the libuuid lib to /lib and soft-link in /usr/lib

I didn't install the whole compat package as this is not really necessary I think.

Slackware :: Security Page Been Updated To Include Latest Firefox?

Oct 5, 2010

I'm on the Slackware Security mailing list and I check the Slackware Security Advisory page daily because the mailing list, for me at least, is unreliable. After Firefox nagged me about a security update, I went to one of the FTP mirrors to check for an update and the Firefox update was there, but it still hasn't shown up on the official Slackware Security update page.

General :: Copy Everything In A Subdirectory Across To The Relevant Subdirectory Elsewhere

Sep 16, 2011

At the moment I'm doing:

for i in mdx/[0-9][0-9].png; do cp $i ../../d_s_c/images/mdx ; done

But as well as the directory mdx, I also have other directories called ntt, etc.

How can I say 'For everything in a subdirectory, copy it across to the same subdirectory over at at ../../d_s_c/images'?

Slackware :: Klipper Doesn't Always Store The Latest Clipboard Contents In Its History In Kde 4.3.5

Apr 10, 2010

klipper doesn't always store the latest clipboard contents in its history in kde 4.3.5. I have "ignore selection" and "separate clipboard and selection" set in Klippers settings. When i open a new program, for example - kwrite, type some text in it, select some of it and hit ctrl+c - copied text doesn't show up in klippers history list. It seems that klipper misses the first copy operation done in newly launched applications, only by copying the same (or some other) text again klippers menu entry shows up. This seems to happen with only newly launched application, when i had kwrite window already open, opening a second window and performing copy worked fine with klipper.

Slackware :: Use Of Zenwalk GNOME Packages As GNOME Distribution

Jul 26, 2010

Recently I've read an interview at Distrowatch, where a topic was the compatibility of Slackware and Zenwalk packages. My understanding was that now they should both be used in both systems.

As Slackware doesn't feature a complete GNOME distribution, my curiosity was about the ability of Zenwalk's GNOME packages play a role there. If so, the second question is how intrusive those packages are considering Slackware 13.1.
