Plz check http://bdheeman.noip.me/pub/SlackBuilds/venom.tar.xz

This build script itself is also a beta, I still need to add a functionality so that the script auto updates the package info i.e. the vesrion, md5sums and, or other requisite info as well; users or me need not update or modify it manually ;)

Anyway, it worked for me and builds Slackware packages for both i486 and x86_64 architectures. Which can be converted to Porteus modules; plz test it all feedback though howsoever it might be negative shall highly be appreciated.

This package requires json-glib, the json-glib-0.16.2-i486-1sl.txz worked for me; I'm using MATE desktop and I think there might be some other dependencies as well depending on your DE. User may check the same using ldd utility.

Better try http://bdheeman.noip.me/pub/SlackBuilds ... bin.tar.xz for binary blobs.

or build your own packages using http://bdheeman.noip.me/pub/SlackBuilds ... git.tar.xz

I also have created http://bdheeman.noip.me/pub/SlackBuilds ... git.tar.xz and http://bdheeman.noip.me/pub/SlackBuilds ... git.tar.xz for building venom from git source and, or repositories :)
