Slackware64 wysiwyg web page editor / Amaya running ?


This thread is two part. Firstly:- can anyone recommend a wysiwyg web page editor for Slackware64 13? I have tried building Kompozer which I think may need 32 bit compatability libraries and Amaya which builds but won't run. I also have Bluefish but that's not a wysiwyg editor. The only thing I have at the moment is the standard one that comes with Seamonkey. Useful though that is I would like to try out some others.

The second related part:- Has anyone managed to get Amaya to work on Slackware64 - 13 ? I have built it from the Slackbuild here - it builds OK but gives this when I try to run it (from a console to show the error):
Code:
17:07:05: Deleted stale lock file '/home/ed/.amaya_bin-ed'.
FATAL ERROR : Your OpenGL implementation does not support needed features!
/usr/bin/amaya: line 11: 12334 Segmentation fault      env XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 G_SLICE="always-malloc" $PREFIX/$AMAYA_INSTALLDIR/$AMAYAGUI/bin/amaya_bin "${1+$@}"
Thanks in advance.

As an answer to the second part of your question, I have Amaya working fine in slackware64 box. I used the slackbuild for installing it.

Thanks for the information, escaflown. A few further bit of information may help.

Is it version 11.2 you run ? Did you have to add any dependencies ?

That's the problem I think. Either you need better drivers for your graphic card, or a better card.

FWIW It doesn't run here either it just segfaults. I will stick to bluefish and vim for now, since I tend to use php and xhtml anyway.

yes it's version 11.2 and I didn't need to add any dependency.

@dive thanks to the reply - so at least it's not just me that's having this problem. I didn't think I'd need any special graphics card/driver just to run a web page editor! I am not going to upgrade my hardware just to run this. Still bugs me though.

@escaflown thanks - the plot thickens...

Try editing the wrapper script from
Code:
env XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 G_SLICE="always-malloc" $PREFIX/$AMAYA_INSTALLDIR/$AMAYAGUI/bin/amaya_bin "${1+$@}"
to be just

Code:
$PREFIX/$AMAYA_INSTALLDIR/$AMAYAGUI/bin/amaya_bin "${1+$@}"

@disturbed I tried your suggestion but no joy.

As an experiment I reverted to Slackware 12.0 and ran the Slackbuild for 13 which builds Amaya 11.2. On Slackware 12.0 this works fine. I am running Nvidia's driver on both systems so I'm not sure my drivers differ (although one is 64 bit and one 32). Obviously my hardware is the same in both cases. Maybe the dependency versions between 12.0 and 64-13.0 breaks Amaya - I'm determined to get this working as I have decided Slacware64 13 is going to be my main desktop

I've only just started looking at Amaya but so far it looks great.

After looking at this for a stupidly long time I realized my Nvidia driver was no longer loading. My xorg.conf which loaded this driver had vanished from my system! I still don't know how but when I reinstalled the Nvidia driver to be sure and ran X Amaya now works ! Cool. So apologies, dive, you were right all along I just didn't check for a driver which had always been there - for some reason it latterly went! I should have checked this given your advice.

I am marking this as solved as I now need to get up to speed with Amaya before looking for any alternatives. To be honest there seems very little choice anyway.

Thanks to all who replied.
