I too have a GNUstep environment on top of Slackware 10.2.  I do use the GSBoot.sh script shown in the boot guide.  I just put a call to it in my /etc/rc.d/rc.local file.  I'm no linux expert either, but this seemed appropriate for the task.  Anyway, it's nice to know I'm not the only one trying to do GNUstep on Slackware.

Hi all!

I just finished to install a fresh GNUstep environment on my new Slackware 10.2
system! I just tested it with GWorkspace and -- on a first glance -- it worked
perfectly (using SVN-sources for the base and gui)

I used the installation instructions in


which were very helpful!

However, I had to do some adjustments to make GNUstep work correctly on my

1) Instead of just adding a boot script (GSBoot.sh), I made a link in
/etc/profile.d to /usr/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh.

This is because sourcing in GNUstep.sh in the gnustep boot script does not work
(when placed as a link in the /etc/rc.d directory as, say, rc.gnustep). However,
the services are nevertheless started correctly.

2) I changed the LD_LIBRARY_PATH in /etc/profile.d/ld.sh from:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib/"


export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib/:/usr/GNUstep/System/Library/Libraries"

I /think/ the above ways are clean ways to make GNUstep work correctly on
Slackware, but I am no Linux-Expert. If all this is o.k., one should perhaps add
respective remarks in the build instructions ...

I would appreciate any remarks (for example, if I missed something in the build
instructions that would have saved me from "hacking" my Linux-system :) )
