Slackware 64 13.37 installpkg problem with k3b
 
I tried to install k3b using a package from my
Slackware64 13.37 DVD ( that I downloaded ), into
my Slackware 64 13.37 OS that I installed from
the same DVD. I can't see k3b in the KDE Multimedia
menu, and I can not start it from the KDE Run Command.
And I can't find it any were in the /usr or /etc
directory or anywhere else.
I hope I'm doing something obviously wrong and
some one will point it out to me.

Package k3b-2.0.2-x86_64-2.txz installed.

It says it's installed, but why can't I start it ?

This looks weird, maybe the package is corrupted.

Check with "ls -l" that this file weights exactly 8749640 bytes.

And use the "explodepkg" command to check its content.

Maybe try this:

# slackpkg reinstall k3b

Perhaps the package is corrupt?! Slackpkg will pull down a fresh copy of k3b.

Something does look odd with the file format.
It's the right size but the file format is not recognized.

bash-4.1# ls -l k3b-2.0.2-x86_64-2.txz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 8749640 Sep 3 15:31 k3b-2.0.2-x86_64-2.txz

Exploding package k3b-2.0.2-x86_64-2.txz in current directory:

I'm going to find a different copy from the internet
and see if that works.

You are running 32-bit Slackware... not 64-bit as you thought.

Slackware 64 13.37 installpkg problem with k3b
 
This is a big bad surprise to me ! So I have the 32 bit
version installed even though I downloaded a supposedly
64 bit DVD version of Slackware 13.37 ?
How did that happen? I've no idea. So, how does somebody
get a real 64 bit version of Slackware and install a
64 bit version of Slackware ?
Now I'm going to have to zap this entire OS and start
all over again. I want to do it right next time.
What does the 64 bit Slackware uname -a look like ?
The README.TXT on my DVD says:
Welcome to Slackware 13.37! (64-bit x86_64 edition)

Slackware 13.37 is a complete distribution of the Linux operating system.

Here are some versions of major components of Slackware 13.37:

- Linux kernel 2.6.37.6
2.6.38.4
- C compiler gcc-4.5.2
- Binutils 2.21.51.0.6
- GNU C Library glibc-2.13
- X Window System X11R7.6 + updates
- KDE 4.5.5
- Xfce 4.6.2

For installation instructions, see the file 'Slackware-HOWTO'.
Are you sure I'm running a 32-bit Slackware ?

Do you have an official DVD bought from the Slackware Store? That DVD is double-sided, 32-bit Slackware on one and 64-bit Slackware on the other side.

Uname on a 64-bit computer looks like this:

Code:

$ uname -a
Linux thyrion 2.6.37.6 #2 SMP Sat Apr 9 13:24:51 CDT 2011 x86_64 AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 640 Processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

Slackware 64 13.37 installpkg problem with k3b
 
Sad to say, the problem is that the OS is 32 bit and I was
installing 64 bit applications on it. My other topic in Slackware;
Slackware 13.37 k3b can not find cdrecord
was the same.
So both topics are now solved.
What isn't solved is how I got a 32-bit OS installed from
a supposedly 64-bit iso download file. But what is life
without mysteries...
