    Slackware packages


    After i made a slack package and installed it...should'n i be able to run it from the run command?
    I installed firestarter but i am unable to run it.Is it because it's not designed for slack?Or what?Is there another way to run the installed packages?

    Well what does the error say when you run the command?

    did you install the dependent libraries too.

    I don't know what command to run from terminal...i know it sounds stupid but i don't

    i tried with nohup and

    "nohup: appending output to `nohup.out'
    nohup: cannot run command `kfilecoder': No such file or directory
    "

    but i installed the package...100% sure

    whats the name of the package.. look in /var/log/packages for it

    look inside that file and it'll show what the name of the executable is .. /usr/local/bin/program , or similar.

    type that at the console, you dont want to use nohup

    Why no nohup?
    What is the problem...i'm a noob and i must learn so....


    An example of a nonworking package is firestarter-1.0.3-i386.tgz made by myself after i made configure and make, i made the package....but it won't work

    And in usr/local/bin there isn't it's name and with program it won't open...

    got it but when i try to run the package

    root@home:/var/log/packages# /var/log/packages/firestarter-1.0.3-i386
    /var/log/packages/firestarter-1.0.3-i386: line 1: PACKAGE: command not found
    /var/log/packages/firestarter-1.0.3-i386: line 2: COMPRESSED: command not found
    /var/log/packages/firestarter-1.0.3-i386: line 3: UNCOMPRESSED: command not found
    /var/log/packages/firestarter-1.0.3-i386: line 4: PACKAGE: command not found
    /var/log/packages/firestarter-1.0.3-i386: line 5: PACKAGE: command not found
    /var/log/packages/firestarter-1.0.3-i386: line 6: FILE: command not found
    /var/log/packages/firestarter-1.0.3-i386: line 7: ./: is a directory
    /var/log/packages/firestarter-1.0.3-i386: line 8: po/: No such file or directory
    /var/log/packages/firestarter-1.0.3-i386: line 9: po/zh_CN.po: No such file or directory
    ......................

    /var/log/packages/firestarter-1.0.3-i386: line 192: pixmaps/Makefile.in: No such file or directory
    /var/log/packages/firestarter-1.0.3-i386: line 193: ChangeLog: command not found
    /var/log/packages/firestarter-1.0.3-i386: line 194: COPYING: command not found
    /var/log/packages/firestarter-1.0.3-i386: line 195: CREDITS: command not found



    why that?
    could it be because of the i386?

    why are you trying to run the package info file?

    /var/log/packages is for package files, when you install a package the package file goes in there, do not play with it.

    you should be running /usr/local/bin/executablename.

    ... May I recommend ubuntu 6.0.6?

    why are you bothering to compile and make the packages yourself when there are premade ones to download and install?
