I'm not sure if OP has tasted sbopkg + sqg, but i find it very easy and since kdenlive is already available on SBo, installing it would be very easy thing to do

Install sbopkg
Copy sqg to /usr/bin and edit the repo version to 14.1
Run sbopkg -r
Run sqg -a
Run sbopkg install kdenlive

That's it

I'm sure it would take less than 3 hours

vdemuth does have a valid point, but I think it's an unfortunate time to be leaving desktop Slackware -- there's a new generation of tools coming along that are making it easier than ever to extend and maintain Slackware systems -- sbopkg is better than ever, there's aaditya's new asbt, and slackpkg+ makes it really easy to use third party binary repositories (we always mention trust issues with that, but it's no worse than using Ubuntu PPAs).

I'm working on a new tool that'll build you kdenlive or whatever, plus all deps, with no manual intervention. It'll be a few weeks before it's ready, but I ran it just now and it built kdenlive and five deps in seven minutes flat (I already had most deps). Here's a sneak preview:

Oh c'mon, a true Slacker fixes it himself, he could easily find other ways how to solve his so called dependency resolution problem, see willysr's post above for an example. After 10 years he did not understand that Slackware will never be a distro holding your hand?

The usual Linux distro is built of a large web of inter-dependent binaries. Some people may find building such pyramids interesting and may be proud of getting a 20k collection of .debs "stable". But for real world use such a fragile construction is just not robust enough: You replace an essential part with a slightly incompatible one and the whole house of cards breaks down. This is especially an issue, because the Linux dynamic linker still doesn't support side-by-side DLLs.

So instead of that you want to have simple, manageable parts of software, that work independently. You want to restrict dependencies to a maximum of two levels:

1. required base operating system (e. g. "Slackware 14.1 complete install")
2. required middleware (e. g. "Java Runtime Environment")
and then on top of that the self-contained application itself.

That must be the goal and not having 30 entry long queues of libwhatever. There is a reason why the most successful/most used end-user Linux distributions are task-specific self-booters and live-systems, because they don't concern the user ever with having to install or update software. They are basically "one application" that boots on bare metal. And that is not enough for a reliable desktop.

Learned something new today! I was not aware of sqg. Very nifty tool!

True Slacker?!

Who is a true slacker and who is to decide who a true slacker is?

Can we just use our favourite linux distro and refrain from branding people as true slackers or otherwise? Btw, what would be the opposite in this case? Unworthy slacker? Fake slacker?

He understood and he fixed it by switching distros.

Each to their own, personally I'm still happy with Slack.

Oh boy, now I got 3 senior members acting as moral watchers against me, keep coming, it triggers me even more. He is a false slacker to me yes, that simple, complaining as a child (my personal definition, not a universal one).

You are preaching to the converted! See my old blog post.

The way I see it is this. I like Slackware as it is and am happy with manual dependency management. I would also argue as I have previously that people should not exclude choosing Slackware because they think this is a major problem. They should try it and I suspect many of them would not find it an issue and may even like it.

However in the case of the OP, he tried it (for a very long time) and it still wasn't what he wanted, which is OK by me. Not everyone likes that way of working in the same way that not everyone likes olives.

Well-said, we are all Slackers. OpenSUSE is a great distro; I run it from time to time.
I wish you well, vdemuth.

Here is the complete opposite: I have an easier time on my machine (slackware) than on my dad's PC (xubuntu)
All of that with using just two softwares to install everything I need: sbopkg and slackpkg+.

and I didn't like it. Even if the build succeeds, it's still missing essential parts like aqbanking, which are not even on SBo. Sooner or later something on that list above will get updated as requirement for a different package and break Gnucash.

So I chose this instead. It contains everything the application needs and installs perfectly into ~/.wine within five minutes, even on an Atom CPU. It was just built for the wrong platform. All it needs beside a Slackware base install is a single package as a runtime and that's it. It even survives Slackware release upgrades.

So the easiest way to install and run open source applications is installing their Windows ports using WINE. And that says a lot about the state of our Linux desktop...
