Dependencies

Published on 2007-07-18 at 22:50:49 by  Georgi Sotirov

Starting my new Slackware 12 repository, I have decided to build all the dependencies of my packages and not to relay on third parties. Thus you should be able to use my packages getting their dependencies from the same place. If you can't find a package dependency, please write me and I will try to create package. Please, note that this doesn't include official Slackware packages. I'm rebuilding some of them, but only if there is a sense.

Be happy!

Slackware 12 rebuilds

Published on 2007-07-18 at 22:45:15 by  Georgi Sotirov

During the last week I have rebuilded some packages for Slackware 12 as well as for Slackware 11. However I can't still start rebuilding KDE packages for Slackware 12, because I have problems building PyGTK. I'm receiving some strange messages from Python stating 'Could not write method ...'. I will greatly appreciate any help on this, while I'm trying to determine the problem myself.

Update: Because this was just an warning I've ignored it, but I should get touch with the developers.

Slackware 12.0 Released! Some warnings...

Published on 2007-07-03 at 10:15:00 by  Georgi Sotirov

Early this morning Slackware 12.0 was released. It's this year major release and this is also the first release based on 2.6 kernels. Slackware 12 has new path for KDE and uses udev instead of hotplug. Dependencies may also vary, because some pacakages were splitted.

While most of my packages for 11.0 should work on 12.0, I don't recommend using the following packages:

  • Packages of KDE applications - they may not work, because of the new KDE path (I've noted missing functionality, because of not found plug-ins);
  • Packages that use hotplug (such as foo2zjs) - they may also not work even if they include udev rules.

I will rebuild those packages for Slackware 12.0, but since I'm too busy recently I can't tell when this will happen. So stay tuned and please report any broken package to Georgi D. Sotirov.
