Has anyone managed to get Conky to install and run properly on Vector 6.0? When I tried this, I got the message "needs lua >= 5.1 to compile". I installed lua, and the installer couldn't find it for some reason.
Anyone else had this problem?
Thanks in advance,
Strange. Is this a self-compiled version, or my build from the repo? If the latter, I had the same problem when building it, and ended up having to disable lua in the configure to get it to build.
If you haven't, try the repo version - it was built on 6.0 Standard, but I don't think there should be any deps that can't be used in Light.
I've made multiple attempts to build 1.7.2, but if I enable wlan support, it fails to build - for some reason, the Slackware-derived version of the wireless-tools does not suit it. I have also intended to see if rebuild of the VL lua package would fix the problem, but I'm not expert enough in building libraries to be sure I can fix the problem. Lua support works with both Zenwalk and Salix, so it is something in the way lua is built in Vector that is causing that problem, though the wireless-tools problem seems to be common to all (or all that I've tried) Slackware-based distros.
