Maybe, but there's probably something that can be done about it. If it's the classical issues with links, wrong ownership of /bin files and the like, I'm convinced that these exist because the checkinstall developer is missing feedback from us. I can hardly believe that there's something that couldn't be done by checkinstall - package creation with slackBuild scripts is also automatic, after all.

So if we can compile a list of checkinstall problems related to Slackware, we should also be able to convince the author to do the changes. The program is still under active development.

Thats a good link from above. Stuart is the main authority in Slackware packages I believe... I've seen his name around here and there anyway...

For some reason, I wouldn't expect too much feedback or resolution from anything you send to checkinstall. It's been flawed for quite some time. I noticed it was better the last time I tried it, so obviously, it's still being worked on....

Another site I ran across that may give you some ideas

http://www.tripleg.net.au/news4.php

You can also find that KDE posts SlackBuild Scripts on there developers site

http://developer.kde.org/~binner/dis...hes/Slackware/

I'm posting a link here to the topic by uselpa with such a list...
