Installation woes


I have d.loaded alsa-driver.tgz.tar off Slackware-CURRENT and tried to install
it with pkgtool. When I chose option "Install package from the current
directory" it just exited on me in the current directory.

Then I tried "pkg-config filename.tgz.tar" and it didn't do anything either.
Then I un-tarred the file and it gave me 2 directories /install and /usr. I
went to ~/install and did "sh doinstall.sh" but it gives an error "usr/lib
no such file or directory" (the files & directories exist).

How can I install this package under Slackware?

Morning all,

For a starter, if you're sure its a .tgz file downloaded from slackware's site or swaret, then rename it from alsa-driver.tgz.tar to alsa-driver.tgz, then try installing it again.

mv alsa-driver.tar.gz alsa-driver.tgz
installpkg alsa-driver.tgz
