This page provides instructions for building and installing tovid on Slackware.
Building[edit | edit source]
You should first install all tovid dependencies, to prevent potential problems. If you'd like to build your own Slackware package, follow the instructions below.
From an official release[edit | edit source]
$ tar zxvf tovid.tar.gz
Move the the tovid-0.35.2.tar.gz to this directory and cd into the new directory.
$ mv ../tovid-0.35.2.tar.gz tovid/ && cd tovid/
Change the version number in the SlackBuild:
$ sed -i 's/0.34/0.35.0/' tovid.SlackBuild
Run the SlackBuild:
$ su -c "sh tovid.SlackBuild"
Once it's done, the output will tell you where the new package is saved. (/tmp)
Install the package:
$ su -c "installpkg /tmp/tovid-<version>-<arch>-<build>.tgz"
Note: If you want to install another version than what is available, just edit the SlackBuild so that the VERSION= string points to the right tovid version.
