You can use two solutions :
1. Use PPM to download all pkgs and make a vlc's module
2. Use slackyd to download all txz's and install them as Slackware packages.

VLC is in official repo now.

@lukaluki
please download LIBS.TXT and PACKAGES.TXT from here:
http://ponce.cc/porteus/x86_64/modules/
and put in your /opt/ppm folder.
now you can use Porteus Package Manager to fetch VLC + all it's dependencies from official repo.

btw: updating of LIBS.TXT and PACKAGES.TXT will be done automatically when porteus-1.1 final is out.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

automatic let fetch it?
you could create simple bash script for that purpose, like here:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

sleep 60                 # to make sure internet access is available
cd /opt/ppm
wget -c http://ponce.cc/porteus/x86_64/modules/LIBS.TXT
wget -c http://ponce.cc/porteus/x86_64/modules/PACKAGES.TXT
save it as /home/guest/.kde4/Autostart/fetch.sh and make executable.
it will download PPM index files 60 seconds after you login to the KDE-4 desktop.

This is normally as Porteus is originally a LiveCD..so you have to make this change when the system is running with saved changes. After you will be able to see the OPT directory in /path/to/porteus/changes/

@lukaluki
please read the docs about porteus filesystem structure:
here
and here
second doc will tell you where you have to put the files on usb stick to get them accessible in virtual system after boot.

hope that helps.

I am afraid VLC being in official repo is only the case for 64bit, and not for 32bit.

I use 32bit Porteus, and after some trial and error, I have found the easiest way to use VLC with 32bit Porteus is:

(1) Install qt-4.7.0_7abde40 using Porteus Package Manager.
(2) Get the VLC package for Slackware 13.37 from http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-slackware.html and do installpkg.

Posted after 27 minutes 48 seconds:
Sorry, I came here in search of the keyword "VLC" and did not know this is the place for Porteus 64-bit Editions.

I tried to install VLC from Slackware sources via Package Manager on a 32 bit system, but it failed. I think it couldn't resolve libass.so.4 in the end (don't remember exactly).

I have a uge library of movies made in M4V format and the players included in Porteus can't play m4v. Maybe with some tweak or extra lib but that's unknown to me.


EDIT: I got it working, finally. :)
I'll publish the packages and what I did in the i486 section later. The kids occupied the PC watching movies right away...
Now I just have to figure out why the network sharing doesn't work, seems to be some broken package.

EDIT2: For 32 bit i added a post here.

I will need to recompile TDE (Porteus 32bit) with better samba support. On the TODO list.

Is there something I can do to make it work as is?
