The version of VLC I was working with is the monster static one with all dependencies, including Slack patches, built in (except qt4 in this case).

The script progressed through the whole dep list without throwing a fit and the logs show that all this did build:
# Dependent package versions (list from slackbuild).
Code: [Select]
A52=0.7.4

X264=20100616-2245      # Needs yasm installed

Here is the tail of the build log:

Looks like it was doing something with freetype at the time?

libpng.

I was playing around with slack13.1 and found out they have a libpng-compat package that takes care of this.
You still need to specify a path at build time for it to find and use the right library.

Finally got a bit of time and thought I'd have a look at the alpha.

Small problem though. If I attempt to use the GUI installer it fails with a fatal error. Using the text mode installer can't find the CD.

Another problem - the fatal error with the GUI installer is down to kernel module loading. After getting to a command prompt, I had a look at /llib/modules. Under that, there are two directories for kenrel modules - 2.6.31.11 and 2.6.31.6. But 'uname -r' gives me 2.6.32.2.

I give up. How do I get the thing to install  ???

:) That was my first assumption. However, md5sum matches, both on the downloaded iso and on the cd I burnt.

Very strange. I should be able to investigate a bit more later tonight, I hope. Annoying through - I wanted to install it and see how I went building a few packages against it.

This is coming from a dep lib for the program which I may not have caught libmng comes to mind. Anyway ldd your executable look at the libs it uses and check /var/adm/packages see if the dep has a i486 extension that is somehow related to graphics/gui then you will prolly have to rebuild that against the libpng14. Its kind of a hunt and peck but if you guys could help me this would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Vec

I think I found one.  I could not build gegl 0.1.3, was getting one of those...can't find libpng12 errors.  Luckily gegl has a short list of dependencies and the one that caught my eye was librsvg.  I rebuilt against libpng14 and installed librsvg-2.31.0, installed it and re-ran my gegl build and voila, no more errors.  Looking at the errors that nightflier got I think it may be the solution for his vlc build as well.
Ken
P.S. Could you post the slackbuild you use for libmng.  I'll give that one a go as well and see if that helps with some of the others I've had trouble with?

:( I can't install this at all. I've checked the md5sum of the downloaded iso (its correct), reburnt the CD at the slowest speed my drive will do, then checked the md5sum on the burnt CD (also fine).

I get a boot prompt, press enter and the CD boots. It gets to the resolution prompt, I select 12800x800 (T61 14.1 widescreen) and it goes away to test the X setup. After a little while, it comes back with this message, repeated twice:

Code: [Select]
Xorg sucessfully configured
Modprobe: FATAL could not load /lib/modules/2.6.32.2/modules.dep no such file or directory

At which point I can log in as root, but that is it - no chance to install, and no chance to get GUI installer to come up.

Checking the system, if I look at /lib/modules/, I've got a 2.6.31.11 and a 2.6.30.6 directory, but certainly not a 2.6.32.2 directory.

The problem looks like its mainly video - the T61 has an Intel GM965-based card. Running lspci on the alpha the card is not correctly identified:

Code: [Select]
Vga Compatible controller: Intel Croporation Device 2o02
And the failure does not occur until the system attempts to start X.

I'd really like to be able to install this, but I'm now pretty sure there is nothing wrong with the CD I'm using, and I'm getting nowhere at all....

@toothandnail, I don't have a solution for you but can confirm your experience.  I had the same error messages on two out of the three machines I tried this on.  I don't think you have a problem with your disk at all. If you try the same disk installing to a Virtualbox virtual machine you might be surprised to see it actually works.  For what it is worth the two machines that gave me the error had intel graphics, the one that worked had ati (of all things).

Paul and Ken and  anyone with intel graphics give this version of  VL7-CORE a try:
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/iso-test/VL7.0-CORE-ALPHA-1.2.iso
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/iso-test/ALPHA-1.2.md5sum

I discovered there were some missing kernel module bits in the installer after your posts revealed the problem ...........thanks for the detective work!!!!........... ;D
Nothing else much has changed from ALPHA1 so if that installed ok for you then anyone else can leave this iso alone. Also there is a delta in the veclinux-7.0/iso-test folder if you want to save some download time.
Let me know how it goes............and happy 4th of July to all you folks from the USA!!

Cheers,
Vec

Tried the new alpha install on the two intel machines that failed on the previous.  Same bad news I'm afraid,
still getting the same error and failure to launch x that Paul described.

So far this is what I've found that I believe needs to be rebuilt against libpng...librsvg, poppler, and possibly lcms.  Side note all three of them have newer versions available and in the case of lcms a major new version.

When you get dumped to the cli try doing depmod -a then try startx again. let me know what it tells you.

Tried as you suggested when kicked, signed in as root and ran depmod -a.  I just end up getting the same warning...
depmod # depmod -a
WARNING: Couldn't open directory /lib/modules/2.6.32.2/: No such file or directory
FATAL: Could not open /lib/modules/2.6.32.2/modules.dep.temp for writing: No such file or directory.


So I use ls to look in /lib/modules/  it contains two folders 2.6.31.11 and 2.6.31.6.  There is no reference to a 2.6.32.2.

Oops!! my bad looks like one of my build scripts replaced my update with original. So could we please try again?
new iso and delta are up the exact same links as previous same versioning I just replaced them.
