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.

bash-4.1# installpkg k3b-2.0.2-x86_64-2.txz

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.

Slackware 64 13.37 installpkg problem with 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
bash-4.1# explodepkg k3b-2.0.2-x86_64-2.txz
Exploding package k3b-2.0.2-x86_64-2.txz in current directory:
xz: (stdin): File format not recognized

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...
