Xmonad on slack13 dependency install errors


I've been trying to get Xmonad installed and keep running into dependency installation issues.

So far, I've used slackbuilds to get everything I need for Xmonad.
(I'm pretty new to linux still, but as far as I know, having 64bit slack shouldn't be an issue in running 32bit applications?)

I have-

ghc-6.12.1
haskell-mtl

The main issue I've had thus far is with the Haskell-X11 (1.5.0.0) dependency, I downloaded the slackbuild:

( http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13...s/haskell-X11/)

Proceeded to " ./haskell-x11 " and came up with this error in the terminal:

Code:

I don't know where to go from here, any help is very much appreciated.

Thanks

The warning for Setup.hs (where it scorns the user of `defaultUserHooks') is nothing to be alarmed about - it's a warning, not an error.

Where I am concerned though, is with "configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables".

Are you running the haskell-x11.SlackBuild script as root?

Yeah I am running as root. The strange part is, the "cannont create exectuables" error has came up before more than once for different applications...

Solved

Alright I finally figured this out.

I had a slight hunch if might have to do with the fact I'm using 64bit slack and it turns out it was.

After searching around for 64bit slackbuild install errors I came across this thread here:

(Post 4)- https://www.linuxquestions.org:443/q...ables-768900/?

and for future reference if for some reason that link doesn't work the answer to my question was from Alien_Bob -

Quote:
In order to compile ClamAV (or use other SlackBuild scripts from http://slackbuilds.org) you do not have to install 32-bit Multilib compatibility at all.

Just set the value of the ARCH variable in the SlackBuild script to "x86_64".

The error you describe is typical of a compilation effort where the script has ARCH incorrectly set to "i486".

Please read http://slackbuilds.org/faq/#x86_64 to get a better understanding of using our scripts on 64-bit Slackware.

Eric


So basically, just "nano slack_script_here" and change:

ARCH=${ARCH:-i486} to ARCH=${ARCH:-x86_64}


Hope this helps somebody!
