Updated packages for Slackware 14.1

November 11th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments


With the release of Slackware 14.1, I found out that some of my previous packages no longer worked properly on Slackware 14.1. So, I recompiled some of these packages on a freshly installed Slack 14.1 system, to make sure they are working properly.
These packages are thus intended for Slackware 14.1 x64 only.

The recompiled packages are :


Enjoy 😉

    Thanks for the new transmission 2.82.
    Transmission 2.82 will not compile using the slackbuild script from slackbuilds.org.
    It seems to require a newer version of automake than what is supplied in Slack 14.1.
    I noticed you have the newer automake package here as well. I have not used your automake package, since I do not normally upgrade the stock Slackware packages.
    I hope you keep your transmission package current!
    Thanks again!

    I was somewhat hesitant to upgrade Automake as well, but I needed to if I wanted to compile Transmission succesfully. So far, I have not found any problem. I was actullay kind of surprised to see Slackware 14.1 ship with an older version of Automake (1.11), when 1.13 was already available.
    I will certainly keep the Transmission package up to date.

    How did you get transmission to compile? I’m using the SlackBuild script from slackbuilds.org, but I’ve upgraded my automake to 1.13 and still no go. I get the message:

      I have not seen this error because . . . I compiled my Transmission package without Qt support. I don’t use KDE and as such don’t have any Kdelibs or Qt installed. I do remember having to adapt the slackbuild script to avoid compilation of the qt-client.

    Sweet, removing the relevant section for the Qt client solved the issue I was getting! Thank you!
