You must read the Cookbook first. Its a great collection of documents. This guides supplements the cookbook with some tips that you are likely to face while compiling a package for SliTaz


  1. Add “slitaz-dev-pkgs” package. Its a meta package to add some of the useful *-dev packages
  2. Compilation Errors like
    • checking for \$PKG… configure: error: Couldn't find \$PKG >= 1.0.0,
    • configure: error: Couldn't find FILENAME
    • use: tazpkg search-pkgname FILENAME ; Add the package with the particular file to BUILD_DEPENDS
  1. Read receipts of other packages. The problems you face may already have a solution in one of the receipts. Some examples receipts include:
  • cups: to strip files other than .so in usr/lib, and to compress some driver files
  • ndiswrapper-driver: to cook linux modules
