Slackware :: Usbboot.img On Slackware64-current?

Apr 23, 2011

Regarding the latest update to -current, I decided to test installing it on a laptop from a usb stick (as I've done may times before). However this time the usb stick fails to boot as usual, hanging with the message "Could not find kernel image: linux". This isn't a problem with the usb stick, since if you mount the usbboot.img file as a loop device there is only 1 file on there, "ldlinux.sys", where you would usually find huge.s, initrd.img etc.

Have tried the 64-bit usbboot.img file from a couple of different mirrors and the result is the same. Have also looked in the usbboot.img from the 32-bit -current... this shows the usual set of files so looks to be OK.

Slackware :: Can't Compile Tolua++ In Slackware64-current

Mar 22, 2010

I'm trying to compile tolua++ so that i can use lua in conky 1.7.2, however I am running into a problem. tolua++ defaults to looking for lua 5.0 libraries and I have lua 5.1 installed since that is what conky requires. According to the README tolua++ can use lua-5.1 but I not sure how to configure tulua++ to use those libraries since it uses scons. Here is a what the README says...

Compiling for lua 5.1

Starting from version 1.0.8pre1, tolua++ can be compiled with both lua 5.0 and
5.1. Both versions will output the same code, and the C API (tolua++.h) is the

The build system is not yet ready to detect/decide when to compile for 5.1,
the easiest way right now is to add a file called '' on the root of
the package, with the following:

CCFLAGS = ['-I/usr/local/include/lua5.1', '-O2', '-ansi']
LIBPATH = ['/usr/local/lib']
LIBS = ['lua5.1', 'dl', 'm']
tolua_bin = 'tolua++5.1'

Slackware :: Another Laptop About To Loose Virginity To Slackware64 -current?

Mar 20, 2010

Just got a new toy!


Compaq/HP CQ60-615DX Notebook @Best Buy $369.00

Intel Celeron 900 (2.2Ghz)
250GB(7200rpm) HDD
8x DVD +/- R/RW Double layer
Win7 Home Premium (for the time being)


I will keep Win7 for clients as this will be another laptop for that usage plus wanting to have a decent laptop for the rec room to do that style of work. Cheap way to service M$ clients without buying more personal license(s). So far no big deal with M$ Win7 but I need to have that pathway available to me.

My reason to buy this notebook rather then a netbook should be obvious, big enough for me to do what is necessary. I've got test beds to do the real work, netbooks just won't meet the needs as describe above. I purchased a Netbook for my wife. That one will be used while she's away to aid with the new Grandchild, a lot easier to carry than her old HP Laptop. If the Netbook is lost then no worry since it's cheaper than her HP.

Slackware :: Kernel Panic After Upgrading Slackware64-current To 2.6.32.x Kernel?

Jan 20, 2010

I have one machine where I have several versions installed on different partitions. The base partition (/dev/hda1) is Slack 12.1. On a spare partition (/dev/hdc4) I had installed Slackware64-current. Last week I slackpkg upgraded and installed the kernel, and now that partition will not boot. I know that with the new kernels the hd* designation has been removed, and have already redone that fstab (accessing it from a different boot) to reflect the sd*. Here is the slack64 section of my lilo.conf:

# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /other/spare4/boot/vmlinuz

Slackware :: Compiling 32 Bit On Slackware64?

May 19, 2010

I have a need to recompile mesa. The --enable-32-bit option falls over every header and basic 32 bit lib, and won't compile. But if I try to install 32 bit packages, I could slap a 32 bit binary straight on top of my 64 bit one. What's the accepted way of doing this? I can't seem to find a package in Slackware 13.0

Slackware :: Does Font Rendering In Slackware64 13.37 Look Bad?

Apr 29, 2011

Is it just me or does the font rendering in Slackware64 13.37 look bad? It reminds me of the bad old days of having to recompile freetype with the then-patent-encumbered option to make the fonts look decent. When I print, everything looks normal. On screen it doesn't look right. I don't really know how to describe it other than it how things used to change after a freetype recompile. Is there anything major that changed between 13.1 and 13.37 WRT fonts in KDE, X, or freetype for that matter? FWIW, I did a clean install with a new .kde instead of using the old one.

Slackware :: Slackware64 Won't Boot / Solve This?

Feb 20, 2011

I've tried reinstalling Slackware64 13.1 to my PC a number of times over the past couple of days and I still have not been able to get it to boot.

Once it's installed I reboot and it tells me it can't find the operating system.

I've tried fdisk, cfdisk and GParted to set up the disk by deleting partitions and recreating them.

When I install and get to the section about installing LILO it says I have an OS/2 or Partition Magic boot manager on the drive, but there isn't. It asks if I want to install LILO in a compatible way with the boot manager and I say no, and install to the MBR. When I reboot it says it can't find the OS.

When I try to boot from the install DVD and get to the boot: prompt, I'll enter /dev/sda1 and it says there is no kernel.

Is there something else I'm missing?

Slackware :: Keeping Slackware64 Multilib Updated

Jul 19, 2010

I'm going to install Slackware 13.1 soon and I may also install the 32-bit compatibility libraries from Eric (Alien BoB).I'd like confirmation on the process of updating multilib Slackware when there's a security patch. I'm talking about running the -stable branch, by the way.Under the normal methods of updating (e.g. 'slackpkg upgrade-all' or using the script I developed to download a local mirror of the patches directory and install from there, or even doing it by hand), the regular 64-bit packages will get updated.However, the 32-bit compatibility versions of those files won't get updated. Right?So I'll need to download the new 32-bit patches, run the convertpkg-compat32 script on them, and then upgradepkg the new files.

Slackware :: Slackware64-13.1: A Minimal Multilib For Skype Required?

I am running Slackware64-13.1 on my laptop. I need to install skype on it. Searching this forum suggests that I install Alien Bob's multilib [URL] However, skype is the only 32-bit package I need and I will not need to compile any 32-bit software. So what is the minimal multilib install (the minimal set of 32-bit libraries) that make it possible for the 32-bit Skype to run on a 64-bit system? Will running


ldd /usr/bin/skype

on my 32-bit desktop machine provide me that minimal list of 32-bit packages? Also, will the installation of these libraries somehow interefere with the original 64-bit system?

Slackware :: Slackware64 13.37 And ATI Radeon XPRESS 200M 5955

Just to note, this is with Slackware64 13.37 with the multilib stuff installed.

This will still drop stuff into /usr/lib, which is clearly anti Slackware64... I do not know enough of cmake builds, which flag do I have to pass in the slackbuild for cmake to drop stuff in /usr/lib64...?

Slackware :: Get Kmymoney Working With HBCI Support On Slackware64-13.37 System?

May 8, 2011

I am trying to get Kmymoney working with HBCI support on my Slackware64-13.37 system. My understanding is, that there are three dependencies for Kmymoney 4.5.3:

AqBanking 5.0.5
Gwenhyfwar 4.0.9
KMyMoney Plugin (kmm_kbanking) 1.0

I used to believe, that the plugin wasn't needed anymore in recent version of KMyMoney, but it seems, that I was wrong. With src2pkg I was able to compile AqBanking and Gwenhyfwar:


# src2pkg -e

Then I used the SlackBuild script from, modified the version to 4.5.3 and started it with ARCH=x86_64. Compilation ran through smooth, and I installed the package. However, HBCI support is disabled.
After some web research I came to the conclusion, that the KBanking module is still needed. So I grabbed it from the original source. Unfortunately I can't properly compile this one. Although I installed KDE3 and Qt3 compatibility packages from Slackware64-13.1 I get:


checking for Qt... configure:
error: Qt (>= Qt 3.2 and < 4.0)
(headers and libraries) not found.
check your installation!

Has anyone managed to get through the whole process and to activate HBCI support in KMyMoney?

Slackware :: Slackware64-13.0 Multilib Can Not Build Valid Initrd For Kernels 2.6.30

I've just installed a Slackware64-13.0 test machine with alienBOB's multilib packages. I'm running the stock kernel generic- with an initrd set up using mkinitrd.confEverything is fine except that I cannot build a right initrd for kernels 2.6.30, both the /testing one or a custom build: if I try, it will panic at boot with the "couldn't find a valid RAM disk image" error.On the same hardware, without multilib support, I was able to correctly build and boot 2.6.30 initrds.

Slackware :: KVM Command Not Found Though QEMU Works Fine Slackware64 13.1 Multilib

Aug 17, 2010

I've been trying to get some kind of virtualisation solution for my Slackware64, and I'd been having an absolute nightmare trying to get virtualbox to work on my Slackware64 install, so I decided to ditch it and move to KVM instead, as a type 1 hypervisor, having had success with QEMU in the past. I installed qemu-kvm along with all the dependencies using sbopkg, and I didn't have any problems building it, nor creating a user for kvm, or anything of that sort. However, now if I try to open a .iso on a disk image I created using qemu:


qemu-img create -f qcow2 ubuntu.qcow 4G

Which I am then easily able to access with qemu using the following command:


qemu ubuntu.qcow -cdrom /ISO/ubuntu-8.10-dvd-i386.iso -m 256 &

(I have an old ubuntu 8.10.iso on my PC that I used just to see if the thing would work) This works just as expected. However, if I try to launch the same .iso using kvm


kvm -hda ubuntu.qcow -cdrom /ISO/ubuntu-8.10-dvd-i386.iso -m 256 -boot -d &

all I get is "bash: command not found: kvm" I have already loaded the following modules: kvm, kvm-intel, tun. Could I be missing something?

[edit] Also just noticed that though I have created a group for kvm and added myself to libvirt, but when I issue the command "groups" neither of them are there, though I did use:


groupadd -g 221 kvm

And I was under the impression that I just needed to add my user to libvirt, without needing to manually create the group itself.I may have misunderstood the procedure for installing this properly, but I'm not sure what I've done wrong.

Slackware :: Slackware64 /usr/lib /usr/lib64 / Continue Patching All These Makefiles That Have Libdir=/usr/lib Hard Coded To Keep A Sane System?

May 21, 2009

I've never used a 64bit system set up this way. They've been pure 64bit with everything simply in /usr/lib with no /usr/lib64. IIRC That's how Arch used to do it.

My question is, should I continue patching all these makefiles that have libdir=/usr/lib hard coded to keep a sane system? What are the side effects of not putting all the libs in /usr/lib64? These are for the sources that don't use or follow --libdir= and LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib64".

Can I rm -rf /usr/lib then ln -s /usr/lib64 /usr/lib and still have things work. There are a couple of files in /usr/lib now {codecs/ crda/ libsyslinux.a rpm/ sendmail siconv/ syslinux/ terminfo/ trn/} which came from a stock install.

There are not any 32bit programs I need to run. If I did, that's what KVM is for

PS. I want some Slackware64 Swag!
