slarm64 (aarch64 unofficial slackware)


I tried installing it like the 32bit version. Working on getting wifi to work so I'll be able to remotely work on it. Need to work out all the kinks. Wicd-curses didn't work properly.

Seamonkey rebuild?

Hi there,

Thanks for Slarm64, I really enjoy this distro, I use it as my daily driver on a Pinebook. Anyway...

Is anyone else having issues with Seamonkey lately? When I try to run it, I get this:

Code:
bash-5.0$ seamonkey
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib64/seamonkey-2.49.5/libxul.so:
libicui18n.so.64: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.
I get no such error on my x86_64 -current machine, just FYI. I have tried reinstalling to no avail. Thanks in advance.

Hi sndwvs,

Great to hear, I will be looking forward to the update. I have been wanting to use Seamonkey more often, so this is good news to my eyes.

FWIW, I host a public mirror for Slarm64, and plan to for the foreseeable future. People can use this as a US-based alternative if they like. I believe the physical server lives in Phoenix, AZ. This syncs three times per day from http://mirrors.slackware.bg/slarm64/...rrent/slarm64/ (because sometimes the sync is incomplete), so it is relatively current.

https://slarm64-current.3space.xyz/

or without the subdomain:

https://3space.xyz/slarm64-current/

The URLs work without SSL as well, in case that is ever a hassle for any reason.

Just doin' my part to say thanks.

Interesting, I will try to figure out why that file is not visible. Inspecting via FTP shows that the file is present, but maybe something in .htaccess is preventing it from being seen. I will look into this, thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Find/Replace Magic

After a support ticket was filed with the hosting provider to determine why that file is not visible on the server, they confessed that it is a security setting on their side that cannot be changed that makes all README* files invisible from a browser, even when the file is present on the server and can be accessed directly, as above.

A bit of cron job trial and error lead to a command that creates a copy with underscores appended to each end of the filename, which makes it visible from the browser.

Code:
find /home/username/public_html/ -iname "*README*" -execdir cp '{}' '{}'_ \; && find /home/username/public_html/ -iname "*_" -exec rename README _README '{}' \;
So now there are two versions of each README* file on the server, the unmodified original, and the same file with a slight name change that allows one to see it in the browser.

Thanks for pointing that out, I hadn't noticed yet.

Package request: tigervnc

Hi sndwvs,

Can tigervnc from extra be added? I was able to compile and install it after installing fltk which is also present in extra.

Having tigervnc allows Slarm64 Xfce to be visually controlled remotely.

Thanks!
