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?

Ubuntu Installation :: Packages Marked As Updated Actually Not Installed

May 8, 2011

I did a clean install of 11.04 this morning. Upon logging in, Update Manager appeared, telling me there were 67 packages to upgrade. I obliged, and the update progress window appeared, as usual. At this point I realized it was not a convenient time to install the updates. No progress had yet been made; Update Manager had not downloaded anything, the progress bar had not moved, and the status was "waiting". I canceled the update and closed Update manager. However, upon running it again, it thinks that it successfully installed all the packages. In the "Ubuntu Software Center" Update history, it shows all those packages as having been updated with a timestamp of when I canceled the update. Apt-get and aptitude will not update the packages either. It seems like the packages have been marked as updated even though no update was installed. How can I rectify this problem and get the package managers to actually install the updates?

Slackware :: Keep 3rd Party Packages Updated?

Feb 27, 2011

I am using SBOpkg, but for the ~30 3rd party packages I have most of the slackbuilds are already out of date, and I don't expect they will be updated when security issues or whatever arise.

So is the only solution to subscribe to the individual mailing list for each piece of software, or is there a more automatic way?

Slackware :: Download And Install The Individual Updated Packages?

Jan 19, 2011

If this is correct, how do you know if there updates available?

Do you need to down load and install the individual updated packages?

Sorry for this but I think that I am confused, or worse, not.

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 :: 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 :: 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
stty: standard input: Bad file descriptor
/usr/sbin/sbopkg: redirection error: cannot duplicate fd: Too many open files

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?

Fedora :: Old Fc12 Packages Still On Updated Machine?

Jul 15, 2010

I did my update back when F13 was first out. A lot of the F12 packages are still on the machine. Should I be concerned. My latest thing was dealing with the Kmod-Nvidia packages left behind from F12. Someone suggested removing them and once I did my updater did its job perfectly.

So, the question is do I need to remove all the F12 packages or should I wait until there is another conflict? Secondly, if I should remove them, is it a search and destroy mission or can I simply nuke them all in one grouping?
