Ada on Slackware64

At Z’s space (the blog of Zhu Qun-Ying) you can find a post about building an Ada environment on Slackware64. It comes complete with a bunch of slackbuild scripts and some precompiled Slackware packages. Awesome!

I haven’t tried the packages myself, since I just download the stuff I need straight from libre.adacore.com, but there are obvious advantages to having the software packaged as a standard Slackware packages, so I might give ’em a whirl in the future.

If you’re interested in seeing how the default libre.adacore.com packages are installed on a Slackware64 box, then feel free to take a look at the 5 videos I did on the subject a while ago: Ada on Slackware.

No matter which path you choose, it’s great to know that Ada programming on Slackware is as easy as it gets. A big “Thank you Zhu Qun-Ying!” for making it even simpler.

  1. Thanks for your kind word. I haven’t submitted to slackbuilds.org yet, as it replaces the default compiler of Slackware 13.37, not sure it will be accepted. I try to follow the guideline of SlackBuild for submission so it is on my plan. I will open a git repository as you suggested. Will post on c.l.a once done.
