I was attempting to test a full install of 120 but......... Gparted failed.
I deleted the existing partitions and swap but when trying to create new partitions the filesystem choices were greyed out.
Using a Lucid disc at the moment to partition the drive........successfully completed. Smile

Back in a few, let's see if a full install with Grub works.

EDIT:

Grub did not work either. Clicking "simple" led instead to the "expert" menu which was stuck in a loop. Used Grub4dos and booted into the full install of 120.
No wallpaper, gray background with dreaded red/white triangles instead of icons.

EDIT 2:
Just to be certain I tried a full install again, same result.

Hi mick

Do you have a file list of what files/versions were installed on slackware13.37 , That would be very handy when compiling, so I could easily match the dep versions.

Hi ttuuxxx

If you look in /root/.packages you'll see Packages-slackware-13.37-official, plus the salix version and the spup version, plus there are some quirky libs that need upgrading. Ypu can cross reference with /root/.packages/woof-installed-packages.

Woof reads these files to build the distro and PPM reads them for the PPM.

Hope that's got what you need, should have Smile

The problems in spup-100 with the Samba client package have been resolved in spup-120. You can now connect to a Windows shared printer.

Just did a frugal install of 120 with the installer.....no problems.I even have wallpaper and icons this time. Smile
Sound, internet and display all good.

EDIT:
Need to reset the time every reboot but the timezone stays correct.

Thanks rcrsn51... that was a fluke, but I'll take it!

~

seamonkey-2.0.13 and 2.0.14 will not compile Rolling Eyes .. it's a known issue with the the later gcc... can't find a patch as yet.

Compiled seamonkey-2.1b3.. it's a huge 20M pet Sad ... (the slack txz is over 18M).. and I chopped a little bit out of it. I'll have another go with more "--with-system-(package)" to see if I can get it smaller. but how much will seamonkey come down from 20M Question will not be much I bet, probably not enough, so we may end up with a firefox distro, not a bad thing, just need to find small replacements for some things. Will recompile firefox too, at least that should be a respectable size.. .

James, thanks for that. If you want to save your full install, run gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache. I can fix that one Laughing

Hi mick If I have sometime I'll look at Seamonkey. Also below is a fix for poppler dev files, just add it to the poppler dev files you have, without it, you can't compile epdfview.

Too small Seamonkey? Too old?

bigbup, yes I'm aware of Phillipe's work, he does a nice job, thanks

firefox 4 is recompiled, saved nearly a meg (smaller than official version), also seamonkey-2.1b3... it's 19M, about the size of the static "official" version. Dunno why it's so bloated Rolling Eyes Confused

see the main post for download

Hi ttuuxxx, nah that's an extras one.. where did you find it?

The Packages-slacware-13.37-official file is derived directly from the PACKAGES.TXT from Salix. I use theirs because the official slack one available from any of their mirrors doesn't have dependency information. That has to be generated in a running Slackware with a script from Steffano Stabellini... me and MMHP have been right through this.

http://salix.enialis.net/i486/slackware-13.37/PACKAGES.TXT

Cheers

EDIT: ttuuxxx, following attachment is the woof database that it reads to get packages. It cross references the package databases. You'll see the fields eg:
yes|abiword||exe,doc,dev,nls

Obviously yes means it gets downloaded, 2nd field is the package name(generic),3rd field is the generic name in the database, 4th redirects doc,dev,nls. If the 3rd field is empty that means it's a PET. It should help you figure out what are pets and what are txz files.

flippin ell, Embarassed ,

I take three days "off" puppy to earn a penny or two too feed my puppy habbit and he comes out with a pre-alpha Very Happy

will download tomorrow morning when I have available capacity,

lets see how much I can break. Twisted Evil

scsijon

ps wuxiandianzi has built a number of 2.6.38.2 to 4 kernals if you want to try one. They are woof compatable. He can build a specific if you want odd things, (like I asked for btrfs enabled to try it, not yet ready as there is no fsck yet).

.

I found it at http://salix.enialis.net/i486/slackware-current/extra/PACKAGES.TXT
I just wanted to know which gconf/orbit to compile to match slackware 13.37 , hmmmm earlier gconf/orbits are a lot smaller, how strong do you feel about matching version numbers?
ttuuxxx

PS I'm also compiling seamonkey
