Is there a wvdial bug in Slackware 14.1...? Cannot install with make or wvstreamer


Hello

I have asked this question in the Newbie section therefore my apologizes for posting again. Thought the "Slackware" category was more relevant.

Ran make on wvstreamer downloaded today from Slackbuilds
wvstreams-4.6.1

Code:
bash-4.2# make
* Generating CC using c
* Generating CXX using cc
./CXX -c utils/wvuid   
utils/wvuid.cc: In function 'wvuid_t wvgetuid()':
utils/wvuid.cc:63:19: error: 'getuid' was not declared in this scope
     return getuid();
                   ^
utils/wvuid.cc:64:1: warning: control reaches end of non-void function [-Wreturn-type]
 }
 ^
make: *** [utils/wvuid.o] Error 1
bash-4.2#
Ran wvdial downloaded today from Slackbuilds
wvdial-1.61

Code:
bash-4.2# make
Package libwvstreams was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libwvstreams.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libwvstreams' found
Makefile:14: *** WvStreams does not appear to be installed.  Stop.
Thank you

hi mariose,

I think you need to read the howto that explains how to use SlackBuilds.org's scripts.

Looking much better. Thank you I have tested the packages at work and will try them later tonight with my 3G Modem. Fingers crossed
