Slackware64 14, problems with compiling packages from slackbuilds.org


Hi to all,
I've just reinstall my system to slackware64 14, before I used just x32 slackware. First of all I've installed compat32 packages from alien's site, and then start to build programs from slackbuilds.org. Some of them installed properly, but large amount of other didn't. The most often mistakes, is that some features are deprecated. Till there is no 14.0 branch on slackbuilds.org I'm using 13.37 branch. So I would like to know is this just my problem, or I should to wait for 14.0 slackbuilds?
I have problems with next packages: widelands, wethnoth, dirac, libffado, lirc, wiicd, graphhviz, physfs, libofa and others.
All this packages, were ok on slackware 13.37 x32.

Hi Chelyuk,

welcome to LQ and the Slackware forum.

Better wait for 14.0 SlackBuilds.

Some SlackBuilds for 13.37 could work, but there is no guarantee.

My system is also running Slackware64-14.0 (Multi-Lib enabled). All the 13.37 packages that I have tried work perfectly. As Didier has said, best to wait for slackbuilds.org to catch up, or you can look and see the point at which the compilation failed and modify the slackbuild to compensate.

If you are so curious, then have a look on SlackBuild's GIT repository and clone them. You will get updated SlackBuilds for Slackware 14.0

Anyone knows how long is it going to take for the 14.0 branch to appear in slackbuilds ?

If it is a couple of days I can wait, otherwise I will be tempted to access it from the git repository...

you can take it from GIT repository since it's the same content used in the SBo's web site

Except for HandBrake, all major issues had been fixed I believe. The admins are fixing only some remaining minor ones. Besides, branch 14.0 was already created in the git repo.

That said, it totally depends on the SBo admins when to officially announce the 14.0 branch.

GCC 4.7.x changed in a few significant ways, mostly in becoming more strict with compiling. Also glibc changed the way includes are handled. The latest ffmpeg has changed too, anything dependent upon that needs rebuilding. All of those types of build issues need to be resolved upstream or patched in the build scripts. Etc., etc.

So patience will be required with the slackbuilds scripts for 14.0.

So reading this thread, if I understand, one is better to wait for Slackbuild 14 before upgrading to Slackware 14 from say 13.37 if any packages from Slackbuild have been used?

I have upgraded from 13.37 to 14, I just finished actually, and I have some Slackbuilds. I had to recompile i3 due to libraries issues. I guess I was rather lucky.

EDIT:
Oups just found out Terminator is broken too. Recompiled and good to go.

you can also setup slackbuilds.org's git master branch with sbopkg and use that (I posted this in the 14 thread too)

Using slackbuilds.org git master branch with sbopkg

@ponce. Thanks, I took note of that. Your zen kernel link seem to be broken.

EDIT:

I actually posted just to say "graphviz is another one", and then I realized that you'd covered it.

glibmm is another one that won't build on 14.0.
