SAP accronym/Computer Jargon
There is a International Corporation that has trademarked "SAP". They've been in existence in the Information Technology Industry forever...well practically, and are the Largest in the World for their products in the Business community.

You may want to revisit the same of your PUP. Also, it will reduce any confusion from those doing Google searches.

We want the attention, but, maybe not the attention this could drive.

Maybe PSA or something else would be a better selection.

Here to help

SAP is SAP, they do not have sap6.

sap6 is a machine.

I should be getting a Pi soon, so I may look into doing a woof build from Armedslack, the official Slackware arm port, which apparently runs on the RasPi. (time permitting :) )

Sidenote: Barry, Meebo is closing down. You'll have to remove it from Woof2 root-skeletonfs.

woof bug?
Hi Barry,

I have just woofed Slacko from the latest and I'm getting this really weird bug. I can't figure it out. I don't *think* I'm missing any libs or deps.

What happens is that it boots fine but only about 50% of gtkdialog apps run, probably other scripts too. It's something to do with glib2, I have actually tried to recompile that too. here's the error:

** ERROR **: Error parsing command line options: Conversion from character set 'ISO-8859-1' to 'UTF-8' is not supported


I have tried a couple of different kernels.
When I try to run "chooselocale" (outside of X) I get errors to do with nls_iso8859_1 and nls_cp437 "modules". These are both compiled into the kernel. :| ?!?

*Most* compiled apps are working. Posting from sus build now.

Anyone else, any ideas?

woof bug: update
I changed my locale manually in /etc/profile to en_AU.UTF8 and everything seems to be working ok. So I'm still wondering if it is a woof bug or something I did.

Meebo, Slacko
OK, removed Meebo.

I will upload Woof. I fixed a problem with gconv, don't recall if that has been uploaded yet.

re: woof, ok
Seems sane now, thanks.

alternative to sap6
As an alternative to sap6, since the arm version is currently focused on the Raspberry Pi, how about sappi? :)
