I've got Slackware 13 x64 installed along with my video card drivers (NVIDIA 8000 M). I am relatively new to linux, but picked up slackware so I can get a good understanding, so please bare with me
Although my video card works, I have two questions. My video card installer asked if I wanted to install NVIDIA's 32-bit compatibility OpenGL libs and I said yes. At the end of the installation, I got a warning saying
WARNING: Unable to perform the runtime configuration check for library 'libGL.so.1" (' /usr/lib/libGL.so.190.53'); assuming successful installation
What does that mean?
One problem I am having is that when I go to System Settings > Appearance > then pick GTK+ for widget instead of Oxygen, my display crashes and I am no longer able to startx. I have to
to reset it and startx again.
I have been reading about QTCurve working wonders for making Firefox and other GTK programs not look like garbage and was wondering how I would go about getting it properly running, from installation to configuration. I managed to install QtCurve from SlackBuilds, but my display refused to start saying that I couldn't startx due to GTK_ENGINE and Qt running at the same time.
Also, what is your preferred method for upgrading your system? I used
slackpkg upgrade -all
I used a mirror for Slackware 13 x64 current , but it didn't upgrade all the files that were supposed to be upgraded. At the end I got a list of the files that were "not found". Would it help changing to a different mirror?
I am willing to reinstall and start all over again if needed. ---
EDIT: After upgrading and then restarting, KMixer along with some other things are not appearing in the taskbar anymore. I've decided to reinstall, so I'll have a fresh install of Slackware13 x64 to work with.
Thanks again everyone.
