By the way, 55020...

I would like to invite you to create a How-To for this on the Slackware Documentation Project wiki:

http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:start

It may help some other folks experiencing this same issue.

Thanks,

~Eric

This is by memory so it may not be 100% correct, but the nVidia installer removes libEGL.so (and its ilk?) during installation (usually when the installer moves existing files out of the way, it also creates a backup; I haven't looked at this recently so my memory may be failing me, but I believe it treats libEGL differently and just removes it) and neglects to rename (or symlink) its own libEGL.so.* to replace it. With the other X libraries it maintains a backup (so the uninstallation script can restore them) and then symlinks its own libraries to the proper names. There was a thread on the official nVidia forums at one point though I believe the issue was meant to have been solved in some version; either it regressed, it was only fixed in >340, or it was never really fixed.

So you can either use the SBo scripts for the nVidia driver, or manually create the symlink:
Code:
# cd /usr/lib64 ; ln -sf libEGL.so.340.24 libEGL.so.1 ; ln -sf libEGL.so.1 libEGL.so

Yeah, I really, really should get started over there. It's been on my TODO list for a year now, and I must apologise to Alien Bob -- it must be demotivating for him to do peoples' registrations, but then they don't contribute anything

Having said that, lintpkg is top of the list this weekend, and then it's back to slackrepo

Well, I understand about time organization on the Internet. You often don't have time to do all the things you'd like to do. Hell, I'm an editor at the SlackDocs project and even my participation has slacked off quite a bit over the past couple years.

If you find the time, we'd love to have you stop by there and contribute. Thanks.

But this is not available as a gslapt package yet. Nor even a Slackbuild.
I don't know how to build packages or patches so I'm gonna have to wait until one is available. Worse luck!
You are lucky =]

I've had this problem trying to build a few packages and using the symlink fix did not work.
Just a couple of days ago I ran into this problem again when trying to build the latest version (at SlackBuilds) of gThumb. This time I un-installed the Nvidia driver (340.46), built the package successfully, re-installed the Nvidia driver and all was well. PITA, but it worked.

No idea how the SlackBuild handles it, but the NVIDIA installer backs up certain files in /var/lib/nvidia or so, if I recall correctly. You can then copy the (numbered) files into place (there is text file you can grep). One of those files is libEGL.la (which I needed for compiling webkitgtk).

Here is what I did

First, remove plugin from panel.
Then
Code:
removepkg xfce4-weather-plugin
After that
Code:
git clone git://git.xfce.org/panel-plugins/xfce4-weather-plugin
cd xfce4-weather-plugin
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --disable-static --disable-debug
make
make install
Finally, add the plugin to the panel and configure location.

p.s.
Sorry, forgot to mention I am running Slackware 14.1 32 bit!
