Not very nice fonts
Hi,when i installed slack 10.2(full installation) the fonts are very bad quality.

Can somebody say what to do, that the fonts look better?

There is a Font-HOWTO at the The Linux Documentation Project that has some good suggestions.

There's also some Slackware specific information here...

I found this thread to be the most informative:

when i try to compile:

cd /root/freetype-2.1.10/

i have 1 error:
configure: error: C preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
See `config.log' for more details.
make: *** [builds/unix/] Error 1

in file config.log i did not find the explanation

Did you install the C compiler? Type in "gcc -v" to see if it returns the version.

Or possibly you didn't install the kernel-headers package. It's in the K series of packages.

Maybe I can save you some time though and you can fix that problem later. I found a prebuilt package...

The C sanity check error is also caused if the kernel headers are not installed.

Where can i get that "kernel headers"?
(in it was not)

I'm sorry... it's actually under the D series... for development. It's on the install CD at /slackware/d/kernel-headers-2.4.31-i386-1.tgz. Or check any of the Slackware mirrors.

The package I was trying to point you to at is a pre-compiled version of freetype with the bytecode interpreter enabled. You can just install it with installpkg and save yourself the trouble of building it. Isn't that what you're doing?
