I'm new to Slackware, and I've been experimenting a bit, trying to get a nice clean setup on my desktop PC. I learned a little bit about checkinstall, and have been using it for most of my install-from-source installations. Trouble is, and I -think- it's related to checkinstall, files and directories from several different programs have been copied to root. Particularly .so.0 files and executable binaries.
Can anyone clue me in as to why this would be happening? I'm still trying to dig my way out of dependancy hell, too, because I started with a fairly bare-bones install. (gnome from source, anyone?
Any help would be much appreciated.
