networkmanager on slackware 13.37

2011-04-10

I found a very easy solution for having NetworkManager installed on Slackware Linux, even without using dirty tricks as I did with Slackware 13.0. How? Take a look at rworkman’s packages for XFCE 4.8.0 ;) In the

extra/packages

you will find packages for NetworkManager, both the system and the applet. I would also install the packages in the

packages/*arch*/deps/

folder, since there are some that will surely be used by NetworkManager (all Gconf/Gnome related). I cannot provide the complete dependencies list since I also installed the whole XFCE 4.8.0, but if you find them out, write them as a comment.

This solution works for both x86 and and x86_64 architectures.


I do not use a commenting system anymore, but I would be glad to read your comments and feedback. Feel free to contact me.
