Angry Slackware 3.0 "include'


I'm trying to get some of the tools installed for compileing software, and I think I have everything expect somthing called "include". I have looked all over the place and at best think it is for the hedder files. But whare do I find "include"?

I got most of my packges form a CD at a library and then put them on my 486sx (via floppys).

I have been useing zull.slackware.biz mostley.

I was somewhat skeptical when I saw "Slackware 3.0" in the threadname, but since you mentioned installing via floppies I'll have to take you seriously =-].
I hauled out my Slackware-3.4 install cds and found the Linux kernel headers (linuxinc.tgz) in d7 of the d-diskset, the libc headers (libc.tgz) in d8 and the libg++ headers (libgxx.tgz) in d6. Obviously these packages will be in different disksets in 3.0, but now you have the package names.
I don't know what reasons you have for using such an old release, but I would advise you to look at distros for older hardware, such as Vector Linux (which is package-compatible with Slack).

I thought that slackware 3.0 would work the best for floppys and for the old computer I'm trying out Linux with (486sx 4MB ram).

I did not know about VectorLinux. I'm checking it out right now.
Thank you for telling me about it.

I see that Victor Linux takes 16MB of ram.
The computer I working with up stairs has 4MB installed. But I can increase the ram size to 8MBs. That is if I can find some 30 pin 70 nano seconds SIMMS.

Oh, well.

I might be getting a 486 sometime sone from a famly at church.
I have a ATAPI cd drive. I also have two ISA NICs. Pharps I can network them. Mabey use the existing patritions to get some of the stuff more up to date.

While it is true that Vector Linux requires 16MB of memory, you can make the rest up with a swap partition.

That sounds good. Right now I'm using a 20.19 MB SWAP partition. I also have several hundred Maga Bytes on my hard drive not in any partitions.

I found the C headers in the Slackware 3.0 K disks.
I'm trying to compile AEE, but I'm haveing bugs with ....../gnu/type.h line 78.
This points to a file called posix_type.h.
I have not been able to locate posix_type.h.
