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?

this one might be simple BUT, where tha heck, I can download some non official software for slackware,I can use installpkg, pkgtool or even gslapt, but WHERE can I download packages or even better set as source for slapt-get.For example two applications: blender 2.49bor due to suckage of craps like mplayer that is installed by default with slackware VLC media player

Slackware :: How Did Users Install New Packages And Their Libraries

May 28, 2011

I'm reading the 3rd official handbook in beta version and I learn that the automated tool "slackpkg" exists only since Slackware 12.1.Before that, how did users install new packages and their libraries ? Did they search each package with their web browsers and then install manually? For me, it seems tedious because I usually work with distributions like Fedora, Debian which use an online package management.Is there another way to download it from console and without web browser?

Slackware :: 13.1 - How About Getting Official DVD

Jun 2, 2010

Now that 13.1 is available I am thinking about getting the official CD in the hope that from time to time I can use their support team. Do you think it's worth it. Naturally I would like to also support the team for their efforts. Would they support me on occasions I cannot get it here? Mostly support to do with available software packages, gnome, etc.

Slackware :: Use Gnome Instead Of The Official KDE Build?

Jan 4, 2010

I was wondering on how to use Gnome instead of the official KDE build. I know I can go to the third party But not sure where to look on how to install it. If someone can direct me in the right direction that would be swell.

I am looking for a install step by step guide for Gnome. I was also curious if the Gnome version would provide me the same stability and speed as the official Slackware with KDE.

My second question is regarding the Slackbook project. I know I can get the pdf file and print it out but I was hoping for a book that can get shipped to me and when I purchase it the proceeds go to the Slackware organization.

Slackware :: Binaries Clamd And Freshclam Aren't Installed Anywhere?

Jan 8, 2011

I can install clamav from SBo no problem, but the version is outdated. I downloaded the newer source code from clamav's site, edited the slackbuild to reflect the new version number, and rebuilt the package. But I get this following error when building.

Config files are installed in the proper places (except the file /etc/clamd.conf.rej referred to below which doesn't exist). But the binaries clamd and freshclam aren't installed anywhere.

make[2]: Leaving directory `/tmp/SBo/clamav-0.96.5/test'

Slackware :: Libraries Not Included To Build Automatically Everypackage?

Jul 19, 2011

As I am learning everyday Slackware, there is something that it doesn't make sense to me. It is about libraries. I tried to install Playonlinux via slackbuild and if I am not wrong this package required a library named libnss3 ). This library was found in seamonkey, a program uninstalled by me. I had to reinstall it in order to build Playonlinus. Now playonlinux runs fine. My question is: why aren't all the libraries included separately on Slackware or its website in order to build automatically everypackage? Is is a huge list? It doesn't make sense to install a package that I will never use in order to have a library..

I have a weird bug : segmentation fault appears when executing the 'retq' instruction of my sigalrm callback in static link...It seems it happens only on slackware...Here is a simple test case, compiled in shared -> no problem, static -> crash...Paste the following script in a file named "", and execute it: it will generate the C++ source and a simple build/test script.... Just launch the build script (tst-sigalrm-build).

Slackware :: Static IPs From Dhcp Router?

Jul 6, 2010

My ISP provides my internet via DHCP. I have a home wireless router to provide internet access, wired for my desktop machine and wireless for my laptop. My question is: Is it possible to configure the router (the Access Point) to provide internet to the desktop and the laptop via static IP? Currently I have managed to configure the internet to them via DHCP and it works. I am just curious to know whether it is possible to provide the internet for them by static IPs, given that the internet that actually goes into the Access Point (the wireless home router), is DHCP.I fiddled with this a lot yesterday, but I only managed to get a working configuraton by DHCP for both the desktop and the laptop. If I supply them with static IPs, I can only ping the Access Point, but not beyond it. So does it at all make any sense to try to configure them by static IPs, i.e. is that virtually possible?

Slackware :: Keep Static Routes After Rc.inet1 Restart?

Is there a standard config file for saving static routes or "ip route" commands? i lose my static routes after every "/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart".rc.local wouldn't be a good idea, because it's not run automatically after "/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart"

Slackware :: Static IP - Ping The Router But Not The Internet

Jan 10, 2011

I am trying to get a Slackware server up and running. I got a static IP working kinda. The computer gets a response when I ping the router but not the internet. Basically it can communicate with other computers on the network but nothing outside of the network. Its not a problem with the router because I have a couple other computer with static IPs. Also the network card works fine as it can get on the internet fine normally.

Slackware :: Upgrades Nuke 13.0 Install - Error While Loading Shared Libraries

Dec 5, 2010

I just did a fresh install of Slackware 13.0 on a Toshiba laptop, and the ONLY thing I did on it after creating a user and switching to init 4 was to run upgrades. After doing so several applications failed to launch, so I rebooted the machine. I get the following error followed by a login prompt:

Slackware :: Script To Detect Orphaned Libraries - Broken Lib Links - Missing Dependencies

Mar 9, 2010

My recent borked upgrade to -current inspired me to try to come up with a way to sanity-check the lib and bin dirs for broken library symlinks (possibly indicating missing libs) and for binaries and libraries that belong to no installed package, as well as missing dependencies.

This script is the result.

I've checked the script results manually, and it appears to be accurate, so I figured I'd post it here for a second opinion, and/or because others may find it useful too. I'm not aware of another popular method of doing this on Slackware, so here it is:

Slackware :: SlackBuild To Make Both STATIC And SHARED Wireless-tools Package?

Jan 31, 2010

I don't use wireless tools myself currently, since I'm wired to the internet; but, I found that a package I wanted to build, required at the least, a shared version of libiw, if not both the shared AND static version. Symptoms of when you are in this boat, are error messages during compiling, similar to:

/usr/lib64/libiw.a( In function `iw_mwatt2dbm':
iwlib.c:(.text+0x1a77): undefined reference to `log10'
iwlib.c:(.text+0x1a84): undefined reference to `ceil'
