FVWM-Crystal Slackbuild???


Does anyone know where I can find a slackbuild for FVWM-Crystal? I've tried installing it by hand it but its just too time consuming. I'm constantly rebuilding my old laptop and I'd love to have a tgz or a slackbuild for it.

This may be it, but not tested by me.
( http://github.com/PhantomX/slackbuil...r/fvwm-crystal )
seems like the download is quacky though...
you also could try using src2pkg (source2package ) to install it too
( http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/...html/intro.htm )

Yeah I tried the first and it's not very good. I'll try the second one. Thanks for the reply.

Here's a src2pkg script to build that with(name it 'fvwm-crstyal.src2pkg':

Code:
#!/bin/bash

You'll also need this xintrc file:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# $XConsortium: xinitrc.cpp,v 1.4 91/08/22 11:41:34 rws Exp $

# redirect errors to a file in user's home directory if we can
errfile="$HOME/.xsession-errors"
if ( umask 077 && cp /dev/null "$errfile" 2> /dev/null )
then
  exec > "$errfile" 2>&1
else

  mktemp=/usr/bin/mktemp
  for errfile in "${TMPDIR-/tmp}/xses-$USER" "/tmp/xses-$USER"
  do
    if ef="$( umask 077 && $mktemp "$errfile.XXXXXX" 2> /dev/null)"
    then
      exec > "$ef" 2>&1
      mv "$ef" "$errfile" 2> /dev/null
      break
    fi
  done
fi

userresources=$HOME/.Xresources
usermodmap=$HOME/.Xmodmap
sysresources=/etc/X11/xinit/.Xresources
sysmodmap=/etc/X11/xinit/.Xmodmap

# merge in defaults and keymaps

if [ -f $sysresources ]; then
    xrdb -merge $sysresources
fi

if [ -f $sysmodmap ]; then
    xmodmap $sysmodmap
fi

if [ -f $userresources ]; then
    xrdb -merge $userresources
fi

if [ -f $usermodmap ]; then
    xmodmap $usermodmap
fi

# run all system xinitrc shell scripts.
for file in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/* ; do
	[ -x $file ] && source $file
done

# start some nice programs

exec /usr/bin/fvwm-crystal
Name it 'xinitrc.fvwm-crystal' and place it alongside the sources and the fvwm-crystal.src2pkg script.

this may be too old, but I just tried these scripts with Slackware 13, the issue im having is this output. Im new to slackware and not sure what the proper fix would be.

Code:
Checking for misplaced dirs -
   Notice - Package contains /usr/local directory, but PRE_FIX is: /usr
   You may need to patch the Makefile(s) to correct the installation prefix.
   FATAL! This build installs faulty directories or files.
   You must fix the build as suggested above, or override this action with:
   FAIL_ON_BAD_DIRS=NO from the command-line or in your src2pkg.conf file.
Thanks for any help in advance!

Have you cahnged some settings in the src2pkg.conf file? I just tried this build again and it worked flawlessly here.

I haven't altered src2pkg.conf at all
all 3 files are in the directory /home/chloride/FVWMcrystal and this is where i am running the .src2pkg file from.
Is it possible that I need to place that /FVWMcrystal somewhere else?

-I just tested this same setup on my laptop with freshly installed Slackware 13 again the same issue comes up.
