Exclamation Libwrap librarie


I've tried to install nfs-utils, but when I run the commando ./configure, and shows me the next error:

Quote:

Anybody have a link for that library??

Why are you trying to build nfsutils on your own? There is a Slackware package included with the distribution.
What version of Slackware are you using? It sounds like you're on Slackware -current, but didn't do a proper upgrade (because on 11.0, if tcp_wrappers is missing -- that's what contains libwrap -- then you're missing the entire tcpip package, so your network won't be functioning. In other words, you need to give more information - it sounds like you're trying to solve the wrong problem here...

I want to create a NFS, for that I need to packages installed, portmap and nfs-utils.

I have Slackware version 10.2, and I don't know why is not package there, because I have another computer also with slackware 10.2, and it had already installed the nfs-utils.

What should I do??
I use slapt-get manager to download packages.

I already installed the package from the link above, but it didn't solve the problem.

The package in the link above is for Slackware 11.0 - it's not going to work (nor should it be expected to work) if you're on Slackware 10.2

You need to make sure you have all the packages from the Slackware 10.2 tree (including /patches/ directory). I don't know how to do this with slapt-get, nor do I even recommend using it, so you're on your own from there.

Question

what do you mean by current??

I don't understand that term I thought the current(newest) version was 11.0, or do you mean 11.x, a newer version but not stable yet?

How can i do it?

Slapt-get --dist-upgrade

There are more than these two versions on ftp. The most important ones are the latest stable (Slackware 11) and slackware current (which will become new stable version some day). What probably caused some problems to you is that when you upgrade, usually only the packages installed are upgraded but new ones are not installed. Sometimes packages change their names or add additional dependencies, which are left uninstalled. I think, you can check in gslapt which version you prefer by specifying its download location.


You can solve dependencies manually or maybe tell to slapt-get to install/upgrade all available packages from 11 or current.

-current is the development branch of slackware. don't use it.
also there really is no need to upgrade to 11.0 either.

direct your ftp client ( e.g. konqueror ) to ftp://ftp.belnet.be/packages/slackware/slackware-10.2/ . There you can download everything you need. Have a look at the Changelog, while you're there.

there are good nfs howtos on the net.

Ih he messed 11 and 10.2 packages inside his system, most probably he won't find which of these should be downgraded. Upgrading to 11 (or current) will remove obsolete older packages making his earlier installed 11 packages work.

Thanks!, I already changed the source location of my slapt-get, and I will upgrade the packages, hopefully this will solve the problem.

If slapt-get will not install (I don't remember how it handles this, maybe it asks) new packages which appeared in 11, but were not in 10.2, you should do it by hand. There is packages.txt file in ftp to check the difference.
