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.

Use dialog but it ay be worthwhile to try to use xdialog as well. I think zenwalk had something similar a few years ago. I think there is also a kdialog variant too.

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.

I would never have expected a situation where every changelog entry features a new kernel version.
Makes sense with a longterm kernel up to the release, but... still.

I want to ask the following problem.
I need to compile Qt-4.5.3, static libraries in Slackware 14.2 RC2 but I get a compilation error of qtpnghandler and not know why. This version of Qt I've compiled static libraries in previous versions of distribution 14.0 and 14.1, I do not know why it does not work.

Искам да попитам за следния проблем.
Необходимо ми е да компилирам Qt-4.5.3, със статични библиотеки, при Slackware 14.2 RC2 но ми излиза грешка при компилация на qtpnghandler и не знам защо. Тази версия на Qt съм я компилирал със статични библиотеки при предишните версии на дистрибуцията 14.0 и 14.1, тук не знам защо не се получава.

you are compiling in the gcc 4.7 and the 4.8 gcc. Things have really changed.
qt-4.5.3 was written with gcc 3.8 to 4.3. I think 4.8.2 in slackware would be the last ones to compile that. the 5.3.0 gcc with with the latest qt-development I really do see some serious issues.  Such as the 5.3.0 is directed more at gnu++11.
Off subject but. Trying to compile qt static since qt-4.6 is pretty much impossible. post the complete error.

Hi Is there a good way to install slackware currently or should I just wait until 14.2?

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

bumblebee.conf: http://pastebin.com/cpGLkfNu

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.

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!

How do I know if I should use BIOS or UEFI FOR an install. In BIOS on Dell I have choice of legacy and UEFI as boot choices.

Morgan Johnson (kaidenshi)'s profile photo
 
Try UEFI first, if it doesn't work BIOS should. So far I've only had one UEFI/Slackware conflict, and that was on an AsRock motherboard. Be prepared for the UEFI install to require GPT partitioning and a small ~100MB fat32 partition on your boot drive. If that sounds like something you don't want to deal with, stick with BIOS.
