[SIZE="5"][b]Making slackware packages from source[/b][/SIZE]

I'm posting this because some people have problems with making packages from source code, and howto where I learned how to do it isn't available anymore.

[color=red][b]WARNING![/b][/color]:
1) howto is pretty short and doesn't dive into details too much (although I initially thought about overview of commonly used build systems).
2) This doesn't work for all packages, only for most...

upgrade to Slackware 12.2

Posted 12-13-2008 at 02:00 PM by Sonneteer

The upgrade from slack 12.1 to slack 12.2 went fairly well. There were only a few issues, mostly with third party packages.

UPDATE:
i have
  • installed Slackware 12.1
  • updated Slackware
  • added dri intel i810
  • fixed scroll
