I can't compile webkitgtk from the SlackBuild script.
This is the log from when I tried installing it with sbopkg:
make: *** [all] Killed
Would you like to continue processing the rest of the
queue or would you like to abort? If this failed
package is a dependency of another package in the queue
then it may not make sense to continue.
(Y)es to continue, (N)o to abort, (R)etry the build?: n
Using the SBo repository for Slackware 14.0
Queue Process: Download, build, and install
MD5SUM check for webkit-1.8.3.tar.xz ... OK
Error occurred with build. Please check the log.
I've also tried running the script directly without sbopkg. It doesn't give errors but ends abruptly with a line somewhat like this (couldn't find log from that so this is from memory):
how much ram and swap do you have on the machine you are trying to build it? you can check it with "free -m".
it can be it fails because it doesn't have enough ram available (a wild guess from the "Killed" in the sbopkg log).
Thanks for replying, ponce. You could be on to something. Forgot to mention it but I'm running Slackware on VirtualBox. Doing a similar task earlier I got an error saying there wasn't enough virtual memory so I raised the the memory allowed for the Virtual SlackWare Machine from 1 to about 2 GB. These were the settings when i tried compiling the mention program. Don't got any swap on my VirtualBox though:
I might be in trouble. I'm building Midori on my Raspberry Pi, using an sbopkg queuefile, and it's partly through WebKit at this moment.
If it fails, ponce has a ready made package.
Wondering if I should stop the build with Ctrl C, and install a package.
