search in slackbuilds returns wrong item
I did a search for "libao". What slackbuilds search
returned was "herrie"

What gives????

Slackware comes with libao, itīs in slackware/l. I suppose there is a slackBuild too on the disk(s) if needed.

Herrie wants libao to be there, I guess thats why you got that result.

I am guessing it's because of this line in herrie.SlackBuild:

#ao            Use libao audio output
As jannekrille stated, libao-0.8.8-i486-1 should be present in a ful Slackware install (it's in the l/ series if you need to install it).

Thank you both for the replies.
It seems I did not give enough credit --- It never occurred to me that the search was going to be looking for the requested item anywhere but in the package build name.

@T3slider - thanks for the pointer to libao on the install disk.
