Error when i try to install KBear for using FTP

Looks like you need to install the package that contains "automake." Automake is a development tool that generates makefiles using Perl. I don't know which Linux flavour you're using, but I'd imagine automake comes with most, if not all, Linux distros.

As a side note, I would not use "root" as my everyday account.

(P.S.) I find gFTP to be a better FTP client application.

I am not familiar with Slackware, but there's got to be a way to install missing components. Without GNU tools such as autoconf and automake, you can't compile/install apps from the source.

I don't think you use FTP to download source from CVS. WineX may be an exception, but you usually use a command like "cvs login" from the terminal to log into the CVS source repository and then run a few other commands (like "cvs co -f Makefile") to download the source from there. There may be other ways, but that's the only way that I'm aware of.
