slackpkg doesn't works (problems with awk)


Hello,

I'm under a weird problem. Slackpkg tells me that it just works with awk installed, but I DO HAVE AWK already.

Ok, then I have reinstalled it, hoping it would solve my problem:

Quote:
bash-3.2# installpkg gawk-3.1.5-i486-3.tgz
Installing package gawk-3.1.5-i486-3...
PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:
gawk: gawk (pattern scanning and processing language)
gawk:
gawk: Gawk is the GNU Project's implementation of the AWK programming
gawk: language. It conforms to the definition of the language in the POSIX
gawk: 1003.2 Command Language And Utilities Standard. This version in turn
gawk: is based on the description in The AWK Programming Language, by Aho,
gawk: Kernighan, and Weinberger, with the additional features found in the
gawk: System V Release 4 version of UNIX awk. Gawk also provides more
gawk: recent Bell Labs awk extensions, and some GNU-specific extensions.
gawk:
Executing install script for gawk-3.1.5-i486-3...

bash-3.2# ldconfig
bash-3.2# slackpkg update

No awk found! Please, install awk before you run slackpkg.
Without awk, slackpkg doesn't work in any way.


bash-3.2#

Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance!

HI I have the same problem but don't understand what you mean regarding the above. It's a little bit too cryptic for me I'm afraid.

Sorry to waste all your times but I've sorted it. I had to install the 'which' package.

Regards,
Simon

Yes, that was what you had to do

Decryption for future reference:

install manually -> with 'installpkg pkgname.tgz'(and not with a pkg manager)
now split -> previously 'which' was part of the binutils (or coreutils, i'm not sure) pkg.


Edit: and if for some reason installpkg doesn't work you can just copy the contents of the .tgz to the appropriate directories.
