Buildsystem

Buildsystem for Slackware Linux to build and install KDE4, XFCE and other applications from the official sources. Supported platforms: Slackware/Slackware64 14.1 only.

Some features:

It is not the intention of this script to install the DESKTOP you want without replacing already installed packages but you can decide yourself which packages you want to replace or not (of course any changes may break the build process).

Make sure to read about known bugs here. Want to compile most recent KDE manually? Then have a look to my buildorder which includes also some helpful notes.

The obligatory warning:
This project is highly experimental, use at your own risk! Don't blame me if your system is unusable after you have used this collection of scripts! It might be a good idea to build the packages inside of a virtual machine (VMWare or VirtualBox).

LAST WARNING!
It is recommended to have a clean setup of Slackware or Slackware64 when you try to install packages using these scripts otherwise build may fail. Building from source is different to install from binary packages so what is working for you when installing pre-compiled packages may not work when you compile packages from source.
