Nice work, I have also been having a go at making some install scripts as well. I must admit that Patrick is quite talented at what he does, I modified some of his scripts as well.

I did manage to get mythtv up and running, it was having a problem with mysql, once that was sorted everything seems to run fine. Although when I used the .tgz file on another computer with slack.

I also made a script that will change the mc.sql file from mythtv@localhost to mythtv@ipaddressrange. Since mythtv recommend changing the database location from localhost to ipaddress so you can more clients to connect the the backend, you might find this useful.

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# mc.sql location
MCSQL="mc.sql"
IP=`route -n | grep eth0 | awk '{print $1}'| cut -d 0 -f1`
cat $MCSQL | sed 's/mythtv@localhost/mythtv@'$IP%'/' > $MCSQL
The only other problems I having at the moment is getting xmltv to compile properly, but should have that fixed soon.

Absolutely agree, I very recently started making my slackbuilds to install packages. Before that I was using the traditional configure, make, checkinstall process for each additional package that I use on top of full slackware install. But you can do that only so many times so I finally turned to slackbuilds. Started with Patrick's slackbuild as a template and now I have around 80 slackbuilds for different packages that I use.

I'll probably include a mention of that in the how-to soon. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks for that little script

perry, generally, it is a good idea to start a new thread for new questions.

For an answer though, you might want to take a looke at Dropline Gnome ( www.droplinegnome.org ), Freerock Gnome ( http://gsb.freerock.org/ ) and Gware Gnome ( http://www.gware.org/ )

I use Dropline and find it to be a very good Gnome for Slackware.

*edit
neither freerock nor gware have relesed a Gnome 2.16 yet. just Dropline.

Yea, it runs just fine. I assume you mean building it yourself? I have some scripts if your interested and are not sure how to go about it.

http://jaguarlinux.com/pub/slackware.../gnome-2.16.2/

If you don't intend to roll your own, then dropline, freerock, gware and others are available.

I've used freerock and dropline. Dropline is a mature version of Gnome for Slackware 11.0.
