Sorry this is so late - missed the upgrade.

I've hit problems with this build. When attempting to rebuild the latest Gtkam, I get the following error:

Code:
libtool: link: cannot find the library `/usr/lib/libltdl.la' or unhandled argument `/usr/lib/libltdl.la'

Looking at the SlackBuild, I see that it has been set up to use '--prefix=/opt/gnome2' instead of the more normal '--prefix=/usr'. Is there some reason that it should be done this way? Especially since libtool itself is obviously looking in usr/lib for its support libraries?

this package needs to be removed.
It should be rebuilt with the prefix /usr I am not sure why '--prefix=/opt/gnome2' was used

I've tried building the most recent version, but there seems to be a trick to it - even built with prefix=/usr it still comes up with errors. So far I've no idea what it is looking for. I'll have another look shortly....

I just realised having this one installed was not allowing xsane to start (complained about missing libltdl).
But all fine with the other version in the repos at the moment.

Incidentally, it seems that xsane does not have a slack-required file stating libtool as a dependency, and lacks a .desktop file (no icon).

I hit a few odd problems with it (and haven't managed to build the most recent version in a usable form either). It is something of a problem - even though the package has been withdrawn, I wonder how many other people have it installed? It would be useful if there was some way of tracking packages that have been pulled for some reason so that anyone with them installed would know to revert.

I'm certainly open to suggestions.  I will point out that these are testing packages and breakage should be assumed. They really should never be used on production systems.  The only thing I can think of is to do what I did -- to post on the package announcement thread that a package has been replaced or withdrawn.

We had a problem for a while where everything sat in testing for months and months and tested packages never got moved to the proper repo.  That made using testing pretty well mandatory.  That problem is solved now.  It's really the main reason I volunteered to help with the repos.  It really was unacceptable.  Now at least testing can really mean testing again.

Is there any way of slapt-get giving you a list of the packages that you can reinstall?
That could tell us which ones are still in the repo.

But, yes, I agree the best way is use only testing for testing and check the package announcement thread.

Both gslapt and slapt-get can and will list all the versions currently in the repo.

Code:
slapt-get --list | grep <package name>

The problem is that --list or --search also output the packages currently installed, whether or not they are still in the repo.
So it doesn't help in finding out whether a packaged has been removed.
Unless I'm missing some other option.
