virt-manager slackbuild dependency problem slackware 14.1 multilib
Hello everyone, I'm running a multi-lib Slackware 14.1 and recently decided to switch from vmware to kvm after finding this nice blog post on how to set it all up, but I've hit a road block because I can't get the virt-manager dependency libcacard from slackbuilds passed the configure stage. I used sbopkg for it and then tried to download and and execute the script myself with the same results. It has no dependencies listed and the error I get in terminal is listed below. I have attached the config.log as well but I'm afraid diagnosing such a log is way beyond my understanding. Anyone else have this problem or any hints or tips?
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /bin/ginstall -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p

Would doing a slackpkg upgrade and upgrading the kernel images affect my builds? If so how can I go about downgrading them to their original versions otherwise I've backed up and prepared an install medium to reinstall now that I have a better grasp on how I should update the system and install my packages. also thank you everyone for your time and help.
Reinstalled and it worked, marked solved. Well at least I got a chance to practice backing up and that was a breeze. But I finally broke my Slackware, took me long enough. Still wish I knew what the hell I did wrong, but now I will be much more careful when dealing with packages, actually I know what it was because of ponce's answer. I think a while back I was compiling something from source to do with mozilla-nss and must have overwritten something important. Thanks everybody for your time and consideration this is by far the best Linux community I have ever been a part of, everyone is so knowledgeable.
Maybe you'll have better luck than I did. Even though the package in question built along with all the other packages, I can't get virt-manager to install a virtual machine without major errors. I saw something on here about updating to the cairo version in current and did so to no avail. Let me know how it goes for you. One thing I wasn't able to get built was Eric's qemu-kvm, so I just installed the package he already built.
Oddly enough, and even though he doesn't mention it in the blog post, it doesn't seem like there is a version on slackbuilds for qemu-kvm, at least not for 14.1. But of coarse I'm not giving up, just need to take some more time to carefully see what needs to be done and then if I can't get it I'm sure one of the many great minds on here can point me in the right direction.
EDIT: Found the deps for qemu-kvm on Aliens repo. Guess I should have checked those first, doh! Homer Simpson moment. I'll give it another shot tomorrow.
Thanks Ponce and ml4711. Ponce after using your queue file my build fails for the first dep netcat-openbsd with this error. I just did a fresh install and have multilib. I'm using sbopkg and copied pasted, and replaced the queue file autogenerated by sqg with your list into the sbopkg virt-manager.
