    Slackware, slapt-get, and sylpheed

    My workstation at work is running Slackware 10.0, and I use Sylpheed.

    I ran into a problem this morning, where yesterday I did an upgrade using slapt-get, and it updated the pgpme libraries. Today, sylpheed would not start.

    When I would start it, I got an error that libgpgme.so.6 was not available. So, I symlinked the existing libgpgme.so.11, but then the libraries clashed.

    Google was no help at all, but this is a Slackware-specific issue. The libgpg version 0.3.16 is necessary, as this is the version that sylpheed was originally compiled with. you can install it alongside the newer version without breaking gpg for other apps.

    Yeah. Removed the symlink and installed the old gpgme, and everything's been peachy.

    Yeah, the only time I use swaret is after I've done a fresh install to bring it up to current, and then slocate .new to go through new configuration files, which usually just is a matter of mv config.conf.new config.conf and so on If you use swaret or slapt-get to update your entire system regularly, things might fall apart pretty fast. It's simple to break a system doing that.

    And yes, KDE takes about that time using Konstruct. I've done it once. Better off using a binary install, seeing as the small optimization you get isn't noteworthy on a faster system.
