Mumble 1.2.2 Package Created for Slackware 13.1

I’ve built a Mumble 1.2.2 package for Slackware64 13.1. From their web page: “Mumble is an open source, low-latency, high quality voice chat software primarily intended for use while gaming.”

The package includes both the client, Mumble; and the server, Murmur.


There were a few dependencies to track down and build. This package does not (yet) include Ice RPC support. I may add that in a future build. The list of dependencies is as follows:

   |_ protobuf (Protocol Buffers library from Google)
   |_ speech-dispatcher (Common interface for various speech synthesizer engines)
      |_ dotconf (configuration-file parser library)
      |_ espeak (Text to Speech synthesizer)
      |   |_ portaudio (audio I/O library)
      |_ flite (Festival-lite Text to Speech synthesizer)

Packages for the dependencies follow.

    How come QT4 (or it’s various parts) isn’t listed as a dependency? I’m not terribly familiar with Slackware anymore (it’s been about 10 years), but Mumble won’t do much without QT4. :(

    The dependencies listed in my post are the ones that I needed to build, which are not part of Slackware itself. Yes, QT4 is a dependency of Mumble. And as such, it is listed in the slack-required file within the package I provide. It is also listed in the build script itself. It is also listed on the page the mumble-1.2.2 URL above takes you to. I didn’t see a need to list all of the dependencies in a blog post. Just the ones I had to build myself.
