If this is the wrong thread, please move the post. Thanks.
I tried to create either a ctorrent or rtorrent module, using the slackware packages. But trying to resolve additional needed dependencies, I stumbled with the same issues again and again:
Some dependencies want libc-2.14.so, and others want libc-2.15.so.
Now, as I understand it, there can only be one libc, and the Porteus 1.2rc1 I currently run uses libc-2.13.so...
So, does that mean I would have to compile all needed dependencies manually to have them working with libc-2.13.so instead of libc-2.14.so or libc-2.15.so ?
New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

you have 2 choices:So, does that mean I would have to compile all needed dependencies manually to have them working with libc-2.13.so instead of libc-2.14.so or libc-2.15.so ?
a) use packages/libs from one slackware version only: 13.37 (for porteus-1.x line) not 12.2 or -current.
b) recompile everything on porteus-1.x or slackware 13.37
Pat used to provide slackbuilds+sources for every single package which is included in each slackware releases:
http://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/ftp.slackw ... 37/source/
same applies to slacky.eu, alien bob repo, slackbuilds.org, etc...
compilation from sources is very easy once slackbuilds are provided.
i used to do it on full blown slackware installation but now doing in on porteus. almost everything is included in default ISO so shouldn't be a big hassle. occasionally you may be missing stuff like bison or yasm but compilation errors are pretty straight forward to resolve (mostly: install missing packages).
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
