Hi friends,
How I can fix this integration with gtk and kde?

The theme is a bit out of place

That radio button looks a little off. What exactly are you running DE wise? It looks like you're using the QT Firefox

Hi, I have recently switched to Slackware (Salix OS) which is now I am using. I am very satisfied with everything except for some. I am unable to install any dock application. I used to have "docky" in Ubuntu but now I cannot use docky or either Plank. Please share me simple HOW TO to install plank on my Salick OS. Thank you!

Java. I needed it the other day for Webex. So, I decided to install OpenJDK8. It said requires OpenJDK(7)?! I ignored and plowed forward. It complained: checking for a JDK home directory... /usr/lib64/openjdk; configure: error: "A JDK home directory could not be found."

So I start to get OpenJDK(7) and it says it requires Ant. Ok, but then Ant requires Oracle JDK?!

Q: Is this true? To run OpenJDK8 I need OpenJDK7, Ant and Oracle JDK?!!

Hi guys, I have problems with openGL on an Asus ROG GL552V laptop (Slackware 64 14.2 fresh install). It seems that the problem is the nVidia Optimus technology...

Everything I did (as root) after a full installation:
- startx:
 the X server timed out after "Waiting for X server to start accepting connections" (I didn't save any log, sorry)
- reboot:
it crashed and I had to hard reboot
- blacklisted nouveau driver via the extra/xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist.tgz on the DVD
- installed nVidia drivers following http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:hardware:proprietary_graphics_drivers (I used the packages from SBo)

At this point both startx (since it's a fresh install, I don't have a xorg.conf) and reboot worked fine, but any application requiring OpenGL (including glxinfo) crashed with one or more Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0".

I tried to reinstall the nVidia drivers using the official binary, but nothing changed, so, in order to prevent conflicts, I reverted to the previous step (to be sure I started from scratch with another fresh install of Slackware).

- nvidia-xconfig:
Fatal server error: no screen found
log: http://pastebin.com/ewuwYzq3
- deleted xorg.conf

- X -configure:
Output: http://pastebin.com/3K9XvjvE
xorg.conf.new: http://pastebin.com/1Rd5THPZ
Same error as before
- deleted xorg.conf again.


At this point I followed http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:hardware:nvidia_optimus
After that (I didn't install VirtualGL):
- optirun bash: no problem
- optirun glxinfo:
Various Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0".
-primusrun glxinfo:
Various Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0". and a segfault

For both, there is this entry in the Xorg log of display :8: (EE) /dev/dri/card0: failed to set DRM interface version 1.4: Permission denied

Not sure who this would impact, but if you're not using pulse and also use WINE, be sure to compile it with --without-pulse. Spent all afternoon trying to figure out why I couldn't listen to podcasts and play WINE-related games...

Even with all the audio things I do, I don't use Bluetooth, thankfully. I haven't noticed much difference, WINE wonkiness aside.

I wish they would've shown Moss using Slackware. It would've fit him well, me thinks.

This works really well! It takes a bit to boot but once up - it seems much more responsive than Knoppix or Ubuntu or Fedora Live versions (IMO). I need to try the persistent image on USB with LUKS home dir. I ran my desktop off of Knoppix like this for months so I'll be able to make a better comparison.

This worked really well.  I've been making them and giving them to friends.  Everyone's impressed with the speed, usability and security.

Well, the exception was my son who doesn't like KDE and wanted more games. ;-)

Perhaps this is a dumb question, but how would one create an application that has the same GUI as the Slackware installer? I am aware ncurses may be used, but I am unable to find any information on how the installer in Slackware was constructed.

It's good to have experience. Thanks to my experience with Gentoo a few years ago, I managed to install Slackware on a KVM VPS that had no way to mount a custom ISO.

The hoster had quite a few images of various distros, but no Slackware. So I booted from SysRescCD (sure, they had THAT), partitioned the disk, downloaded Slackware tree, unpacked USB installer from there, chroot'ed in it - and there I was! Later there were some problems with lilo and booting, but nothing too difficult. Time to configure my new server!

You can't keep me from Slackware even by not providing installation medium!

Anyone rocking ZFS on their systems? I've been hearing a lot of hoopla about it lately and am wondering how it stacks up against the other file systems.

I usually download the source from zfsonlinux.org and do the usual configure && make && make install plus modprobe for zfs in the end. It works fine. But it needs to be recompiled if you install a new kernel.

Anyone get Slackware running on a Raspberry Pi? What's the best option out there for doing so? Also, what type of project are you using the pi for?

i'd love to run slackware on my pizero as well as my pi2b and pib+, I haven't got a pi3 yet. I can't access either site though. Also I have some peripherals (slice of relay and sensehat, picam, noirepicam and new model picam8Gpix) for which support comes in newest raspberrian, so it makes it more long-winded to add support all these to slackware.
