Trac on Slackware 12.0

The above instruction tells about deploying trac on Slackware Linux 12.0, at end-of-life since 2012-08-01.

Prerequisites

This software must be installed:

  • d/python
  • d/subversion
  • l/neon
  • n/httpd
  • l/arp
  • checkinstall (1.6.0, if you use 1.6.1, don't forget to add —install=yes into it's options list)

Installing software

SQLite

Build and install:

configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc
make
checkinstall --type=slackware --arch=i686 --pkgname=sqlite --pkgrelease=trac1 --default

pysqlite

Build and install:

python setup.py build
python setup.py install

SWIG

Build and install:

configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc
make
checkinstall --type=slackware --arch=i686 --pkgname=swig --pkgrelease=trac1 --default

Subversion

Subversion package need to be rebuilt to enable SWIG.

  • Grab sources and SlackBuild of original package (see source/d/subversion).
  • Patch subversion.SlackBuild:
    • subversion.SlackBuild

  • Run subversion.SlackBuild
  • Go to /tmp
  • Perform

Note that version number and package revision can be different.

pycxx

Build and install: {{#!sh python setup.py install }}

pysvn

Since Slackware lacks some crypto libraries, it's neccessary to patch Source/setup.py first:

  • ./Source/setup.

    304304
    305305#include pysvn_common.mak
    306306'''

Build and install:

cd Source
pyhton setup.py configure ; make
mkdir /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pysvn
cp pysvn/__init__.py pysvn/_pysvn_2_5.so /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pysvn

Clearsilver

Build and install:

configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --with-python=/usr/bin/python --without-ruby --without-java --without-csharp
make
checkinstall --type=slackware --arch=i686 --pkgname=clearsilver --pkgrelease=trac1 --default

Note: if make fails, try changing —without-* to —disable-*. So, your configure command may look like:

configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --with-python=/usr/bin/python --disable-ruby --disable-java --disable-csharp

Trac

Build and install:

python setup.py build
python setup.py install
ldconfig

mod_python (optional)

Build and install:

configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs
make
checkinstall --type=slackware --arch=i686 --pkgname=mod_python --pkgrelease=trac1 --default

Don't forget to add the following into /etc/httpd/httpd.conf:

LoadModule python_module lib/httpd/modules/mod_python.so

Notes on Python Modules

  • Check whether all the modules are installed into /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages
  • Check whether /usr/lib/python is a symlink to /usr/lib/python2.5

Configuring

Configuration of Trac on Slackware is the same as for other Linux distros, there is no peculiarity:

  • Configure Trac environment.
  • Configure Apache.
