strange, maybe you have something in your configuration that overrides: tried it now here and seems to work, this is my sbopkg.conf
Code:
# $Id: sbopkg.conf 904 2011-04-28 02:55:13Z slakmagik $
#
# Please read the sbopkg.conf(5) man page for information about this
# configuration file, including an explanation of how to set these
# variables.

# The following variables are used by sbopkg and by the SlackBuild
# scripts themselves.  They must be exported for this reason.
export PKGTYPE=${PKGTYPE:-txz}
export TAG=${TAG:-ponce}
export TMP=${TMP:-/tmp/SBo}
export OUTPUT=${OUTPUT:-/tmp}

# The following are variables used by sbopkg.  Any of these variables
# could be exported, if desired.

# Path variables
LOGFILE=${LOGFILE:-/var/log/sbopkg/sbopkg-build-log}
QUEUEDIR=${QUEUEDIR:-/var/lib/sbopkg/queues}
REPO_ROOT=${REPO_ROOT:-/var/lib/sbopkg}
SRCDIR=${SRCDIR:-/var/cache/sbopkg}
# sbopkg's temporary directory (where its internal temporary files are
# kept and where packages are made prior to being moved to OUTPUT)
# defaults to /tmp/sbopkg.XXXXXX where 'XXXXXX' is a random string. If
# /tmp is not a suitable containing directory, pass in an alternate
# TMPDIR or modify the following variable. This is actually a mktemp(1)
# variable.
export TMPDIR=${TMPDIR:-/tmp}

# Other variables:
CLEANUP=${CLEANUP:-YES}
DEBUG_UPDATES=${DEBUG_UPDATES:-0}
KEEPLOG=${KEEPLOG:-YES}
MKDIR_PROMPT=${MKDIR_PROMPT:-NO}
REPO_BRANCH=${REPO_BRANCH:-13.37}
REPO_NAME=${REPO_NAME:-SBo}

# The following variable determines if multiple instances of sbopkg can
# be run simultaneously. It is *strongly* recommended that this value be
# set to NO. Do not set it to YES without first reading the
# sbopkg.conf(5) man page.
ALLOW_MULTI=${ALLOW_MULTI:-NO}

# The following variables are required and can be tweaked if desired,
# although this is not recommended.  Note:  rsync already uses
# --archive, --delete, --no-owner, and --exclude in the main sbopkg
# script so there is no need to add those flags here.
DIFF=${DIFF:-diff}
DIFFOPTS=${DIFFOPTS:--u}
RSYNCFLAGS="${RSYNCFLAGS:---verbose --timeout=30}"
WGETFLAGS="${WGETFLAGS:--c --progress=bar:force --timeout=30 --tries=5}"

I'm probably doing something wrong (as usual). I put my razorextras.sqf in /var/lib/sbopkg/queues, then ran: sbopkg -i razorextras.sqf, and got this:
Code:
root@slackdesk:~# sbopkg -i razorextras.sqf                     

The following packages cannot be found
in the currently active repository
(SBo/13.37) and have been skipped:

qlipper
qtermwidget
qterminal
juffed
qxkb
qastools
screengrab
qps

(Y)es to continue processing or (N)o to stop?:
My sbopkg.conf is the same as yours.

maybe it's only because you should use the "-V SBo-git/current" option also when you run the queue.

No, I got it wrong.
Code:
root@slackdesk:~# sbopkg -i -V SBo-git/current razorextras.sqf
Error: unknown token "SBo-git/current razorextras.sqf"

Code:
rm -fR /var/lib/sbopkg/SBo-git
sbopkg -V SBo-git/current -r
to sync

then
Code:
sbopkg -V SBo-git/current -i razorextras.sqf

Final verdict on razor-qt? It's OK as a lighter alternative to KDE 4, it might appeal to fans of KDE 3. I still prefer KDE 4, but sometimes log into a different DE/WM, so I'll definitely keep it.
Why is it called razor-qt, when its logo is a pizza slicer?

who knows?
many asked more info on the logo around the interwebs in these days but the only thing I discovered is the name of the designer, Andy Fitzsimon (now back at Red Hat).

By reading this thread, I got interested, too: If Ponce, Robby *and* Eric build packages for something, it *must* be worth a try. Logic was convincing. So I followed the advice and downloaded and installed using sbopkg (what relief this little tool is...!), and started the DE with Openbox.

I hoped for a lightweight alternative for KDE on older machines, not based on Gtk+ or so. So I have been experimenting with Enlightenment DR17 (great effort, hope to see it included in future Slackware versions, once it is released!), and now I start evaluating Razor-qt.

Well, I have to say, it looks good, and is perfectly usable. Localisation seems to have come a long way, but is not complete (at least, for my language, German), but still good. Less nice, however: It sucks up almost as much memory as KDE, several hundreds of MB more than Xfce or e17. So it's not *That* lightweight, at least on my system. In fact, it takes more than 1 GB of RAM, which is too much for anything that isn't KDE.

But that's with the default settings and Openbox, and there are other scenarios to look at, before the verdict....

EDIT: Memory consumption appears to be considerably smaller now. Not sure, if it is normal for the first start, or what caused the high usage of resources, when I ran Razor-qt, first.


@Ponce: Thanks for making this available via sbopkg.
And thanks to Eric and Robby for also preparing packages!

So, it does include file/icon manager? In extras (Andromeda)? Did they tie file manager and icon manager in to one program or is it possible to use different one (the one on the screenshot doesn't look ready yet).

Ran the queufile and it was fine until qtermwidget. the MD5SUM check failed. I tried to re-download, and it failed again. Tried to go ahead and build, but untarring the source failed, so I aborted. This is the end of the log file.

Code:
qtermwidget:
  MD5SUM check for qtermwidget-20111212_ccb7b88.tar.xz ... FAILED!
    Expected: 24a8846197f1c1adce76e18efc817760
    Found:    b75f098ed9497d0850eaf393b349ec41
    Downloading again.
  MD5SUM check for qtermwidget-20111212_ccb7b88.tar.xz ... FAILED!
    Expected: 24a8846197f1c1adce76e18efc817760
    Found:    6bab4095c411dbd581352364d6a8fd11
    Keeping the source and continuing.
  Error occurred with build.  Please check the log.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
So now I have razor-qt running with qlipper and none of the other extras. I can try re-running sbopkg without qtermwidget* and see what happens...

So far I really like the look, but agree that it is not very "light" without even looking at memory usage. I am running slack-current in a qemu vm (XP host) with 1G of RAM. Fluxbox is fairly snappy and XFCE is reasonable. Razor-qt is noticeably more laggy, but not as much as KDE4, which is next to unusable on this platform.

you might have some problem in your hard drive image because the download looks always corrupted (and always different): tried downloading the source of qtermwidget now, checking md5 and all looks ok.
qtermwidget is the only dependency between that stuff and it's needed only by qterminal.

I did a quick memory check yesterday with htop, nothing else open: Razor-qt = 452 MB, KDE4 = 598 MB. So there's not a big difference.
