Building Stellarium 0.20.2 on Slackware Current

When I saw that Stellarium 0.20.2 was available, I downloaded the source from https://github.com/Stellarium/stellarium/releases/download/v0.20.2/stellarium-0.20.2.tar.gz and used the .Slackbuild from http://slackbuilds.org/ tried to build it with:

VERSION=0.20.2 ./stellarium.SlackBuild

During the config process, the build failed with the error:

cmake: error while loading shared libraries: liblz4.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

After a bit of poking around, I found that I could just use the lz4 .SlackBuild to make the package and ithen install it.

After this, Stellarium built and ran.

Woohoo!

Happy Slacking,
Stu..
