Thanks Jostber. I'll give it a go and let you know how it works out.
(I've just spend a fruitless hour trying to get Alien Bob's mega pack for VLC [my preferred media player]to work and i keep getting error messages and missing software)

Edit: I just successfully got the packages, ran kaffeine, only to get this:
Code:
Read error from:
Error reading NAV packet.
sigh....

Here my suggestion:

download sbopkg, download queues, run vlc queue, use vlc.
Yes it's that easy.

Good luck (if you have doubts just ask)

I appreciate this, really; but could you be a little more specific as to where I find what I'm looking for:

sbopkg = vlc.2xxx.gz, right?
queues = what? and where is it?

I would much prefer to use VLC if I can get it to work.
I'm running -current (long story, but i couldn't get my graphics to work on stable) I'm wondering: does that mean when i go to SBO for my packages that I can continue using those packages for Slackware 14?
Maybe that is why I'm having so many troubles getting packages built properly.
So far the only one i've managed to build is "flash-plugin" which is something i guess (means i can visit youporn.com when nothing else is working)

If you have installed sbopkg, install libdvdcss first, and then install kaffeine:

sbopkg -i libdvdcss
sbopkg -i kaffeine

If that does not work, run kaffeine in a terminal and post the error messages here.

Why don't you help me help you by giving exact error messages as well as a description of what you did to install the vlc package and how you use it to play media? Installing and using VLC should be absolutely hassle-free.

Okay, thanks Eric.

2. I tar -xzf

4. I subsequently went looking for a later version of vlc: vlc-2.0.7.tar.xz, hence the presence of that file in ~/.Build

5. I probably made a hash of it and should just clean up ~/.Build and repeat.

Thanks for the help; much appreciated.

Thanks, I will resort to this if I can't get vlc to work, which Alien Bob is now giving me a hand to do, as vlc is a player I've used a lot and feel comfortable with.

Thanks for your great work: Ponce just put me onto : http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/pe...ackbuilds/vlc/
which I am going to try right away.

I had been trying to work with http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/pe...ackbuilds/vlc/ , which was not as approachable for someone not comfortable (yet) with long lists of disparate file types.

sorry textillis, maybe I'm missing something, but is there any particular reason why you don't install the prebuilt package?

This is the url I was working off, quoted in Alien's post: http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/pe...ackbuilds/vlc/

Please, don't apologize: rather let me thank you: I"m going there now.

that's a slackware package, a tarball compressed with xz (not gz), that's the meaning of the extension .txz (.tgz extension is used also for slackware packages gz compressed): you install it with installpkg
Code:
installpkg vlc-2.0.7-x86_64-1alien.txz

Thanks again. Got it.
My god: it installed like lightening too!
Oh, man: I just realized my problem. (I was so focused on learning to work with SBO, that I forgot my earlier -more basic- lessons in pkg management.

Hey Ponce: sincere thanks: you saved me embarrassing myself any further.

VLC, my fav. player: installed and looking gorgeous!!!!!

(the only minor hitch during the install was that I had to include:
-disable-lua since the package couldn't find it,
but I assume lua only handles packages which I'm not going to need for normal DVD viewing)

I try to clarify a little:


- the name of a Slackware package is made by
Code:
$PRGNAM-$VERSION-$ARCH-$BUILD$TAG.$PKGTYPE
- SlackBuilds.org hosts build scripts only, so you have to build packages from them by hand or using sbopkg (or any other build queue manager): the resulting packages may have the TAG "_SBo" at the end (the default), but you can specify also another during the build phase (but this is optional).

- AlienBOB uses the TAG "alien" for his packages.

Seems there's a dangling link in vlc.SlackBuild. Try downloading libva into your ~/.Build dir then run vlc.SlackBuild. After a very quick read of the script, I believe if the source file is already in that dir, it won't attempt to download it.

I think you also need libdvdnav if you want DVDs to work properly.

http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14...ies/libdvdnav/

I know I accidentally forgot to install it before I installed VLC from SBO, and DVDs would play the movie (or first episode) exclusively, with no way to skip episodes or turn on the commentary, or whatever.

Then I discovered AlienBOB's prebuilt VLC and it's a lot easier to install than VLC + ffmpeg + all dependencies from SBO.

EDIT: Nevermind, guys, I see there were two whole pages of this thread I somehow missed. D'oh!
