Use the Slackware packages to get a working development environment setup first. Afterwards, you can compile your own if you want. You'd install the packages with "installpkg".

Yea, thats what I've been trying to do, and it ends up doing this

root@linux:/tmp# installpkg bison-1.35-i386-1.tgz
Installing package bison-1.35-i386-1...
PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:
bison: bison (parser generator similar to yacc)
bison:
bison: GNU "Bison" is a general-purpose parser generator that converts a
bison: grammar description for an LALR(1) context-free grammar into a C
bison: program to parse that grammar.
bison:
bison: Bison is upward compatible with Yacc: all properly-written Yacc
bison: grammars ought to work with Bison with no change. Anyone familiar
bison: with Yacc should be able to use Bison with little trouble.

root@linux:/tmp# installpkg make-3.80-i386-1.tgz
Installing package make-3.80-i386-1...
PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:
make: make (GNU make utility to maintain groups of programs)
make:
make: This is the GNU implementation of make, which was written by Richard
make: Stallman and Roland McGrath. The purpose of the make utility is to

make: recompiled, and issue the commands to recompile them.
make:
make: This is needed to compile just about any major C program, including
make: the Linux kernel.

That should install them shouldn't it? Do I have to reinstall or recomplile or something?

Well checking installed packages in /var/log/packages/ it tells me they are installed, but I can't use the commands, is there something else I need to do besides installpkg

If they are installed, then binaries are there, or should be. Try invoking them directly, like /usr/bin/gcc or /usr/bin/make.

Yea, thats what I thought, the odd thing is I can't find them in any other location other then the /usr/log/packages/ make, doesn't work, none of the commands seem to work, can't find them with ls /usr/bin/ma* or ls /bin/ma* or ls /sbin/ma* or the like, it's really odd..

Installpkg problems

Okay, I've been trying to use installpkg to install programs, it seems to go through but it only ends up in /var/log/packages/ not in any of the command places.

see this for the full history of it.

I'd apprechiate any help.

10 deep breaths

to install packages doesn't mean you have to compile from source.
To install make (on slackware) all you need to do is:

-find the make package (make-3.80-i386-1.tgz) on your CD or download it from www.slackware.com's package section making sure that its for the right distribution (eg: 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, etc).
-as root type: installpkg make-3.80-i386-1.tgz

make is installed ... you will need more than just make but I believe someone has already posted a list of required software in this thread.


Hope this helps *8)

you may want to try to uninstall reinstall .. reinstall (more post happened while i was writing my port ...) one of these packages and do the search again. either there was some kind of stuff up on install or some files have been deleted.

is there a filesystem not mounted ? ...

dont' give up :P

No it's mounted, I just have been having the problem with installpkg not attually putting it in /usr/bin/ /bin/ or /sbin/ but it seems to install properly as the /usr/var/packages/

I'm getting fustrated but I'm not giving up, I am to busy trying to get linux to working, and I don't wanna go back to redhat

When you install slackware it comes with everything needed to compile from source.Something is wrong with this picture,are you sure when you were installing you didn't have any error messages.In my opinion you must have got a bad install,but I'm not sure.Your posts jump around somewhat that it is a little hard to follow.Its almost like when you partitioned you messed up or fstab is messed up or the cd you installed from was not a good burn or you had a bad download.I would start over and use this guide for the install;

Code:
df
and post /etc/fstab

Heres DF
jason@linux:~$ df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1 5485408 1912544 3289720 37% /

NO errors came up during install, attually I have computer with the same slackware, there could be something with the cd's though without any errors I don't really see where.

and my fstab
//dev/hda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

is it posible that I got a bad copy of installpkg? and if so is there one I can download and try
