Hi all, thanks for the answers but they miss the vital steps I am needing help with..
My situation so far is that NTFS works fine (natively) for both reading and writing..
I have FUSE (within the slackware 14.0 on the RasPi) loaded and ready..
My only issue now is making exfat work.
When I download and extract scons (required for exfat from www.scons.org
), it expands into two directories, install/ and usr/ (containing bin,doc,lib,man,src)
Following instructions from http://slackbuilds.org/howto/
install contains a doinst.sh (and some other files)..
./doinstall.sh (or sudo) returns command not found.. :-(
Going into /usr/src/slackbuilds/scons-2.2.0# there is a scons.SlackBuild (which I changed to executable) and executed, it returned
line 25: ../../slack-package.conf: No such file or directory - The file is not there so that makes 'building' it a bit hard.
TheSlackBook is quite helpful but not a great read, trying to find relevant sections for what I am trying to do are not well covered.
I have a fair foundation in this stuff but very rusty in the details (raspians apt-get has spoiled me) so I tend to trip at every (all too common) error building/installing and even finding the relevant things to do.
Any further steps that I am missing or anybody can help with on building scons so i can get to the next step of exfat please?
