It's certainly doable with Vector as it comes as standard in Absolute, which is also based on Slackware.

VL, while having Slackware roots, has changed fundamentally over time. We can't really say that VL is Slackware based any longer.

Thanks for replying nightflier. Here's a link to some information about Osmo;

It's certainly doable with Vector as it comes as standard in Absolute, which is also based on Slackware.

I gave it a try here: http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/git/rbistolfi/osmo
If it works for you we can move it to the official repo.

Thanks rbistolfi. I copied your slackbuild and ran it on 64-bit. Resulting package runs without complaints.  :)

Thanks for testing Roy. BTW, you can get packages from that page by clicking in the "Builds" link in the sidebar at the left, then a table will show up with all the builds. For each row there is a download icon in the right most-column.

Thanks, I have tried it and it works. Just one small thing for the future though; do you assume that Vector users will know how to compile a package from its slackbuild? Not everyone does; I've only learnt fairly recently (the last year or so).

The intent is not to force users to build their own packages. Preferred route is to post a request in the "New Package Requests" thread in this forum. Packages will see to having those built and added to the repository.

Look for Osmo to be available through gslapt soon!

Thanks for testing. I certainly do not expect that, these are only tests, we will add it to the official repo!
