Unhappy slapt-get error on first run

Hello! I get an error when running slapt-get.

The error is: "slapt-get: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory".

Can you help me? I've booted the Slackware disk # 1 and unchecked everything except the libraries category and installed them. I rebooted and it still says this. I get this same error before I put the disk in and rebooted to install ALL libraries. I really need help. BTW, I can't load KDE :-(.

I found a pkg manager already installed called "slackpkg". But I really need help on this library issue!! I uninstalled it (slapt-get) anyway, so forget that!

I'm confused now, are we supposed to be forgetting the problem this topic is actually about? If you need to resolve an issue with KDE, you are better off making a new topic that fully describes that problem, rather than derailing an existing one.

So to be clear, what issue are we working on now?

We are working on the library issues and KDE. When I start xorg, it says something about D-BUS. BTW, how do I get the Xorg output into a text file?

Do a full install unless you know how to handle the consequences of missing deps.

You can probably skip the kdei/ and e/ (if you don't plan on using emacs).

X outputs a log file already /var/log/Xorg.0.log
