-Installing a virtualenv package is not really needed since it will be downloaded automatically during the “''​make build''​” command which you will run as part of the next step in the procedure. 
  
 The Sync Server code is hosted in a Mercurial repository and since Slackware ships a Mercurial client, that code is easy to check out to a local directory where you continue to build the server binary: <​code>​ The Sync Server code is hosted in a Mercurial repository and since Slackware ships a Mercurial client, that code is easy to check out to a local directory where you continue to build the server binary: <​code>​

   * By default, the server stores your sync data in a sqlite database (you can use a real MySQL server database if you want), but it will create the sqlite database in ''/​tmp''​ which is entirely inappropriate. Further down you will find what you have to modify so that your clients’ sync data go somewhere less “volatile”.   * By default, the server stores your sync data in a sqlite database (you can use a real MySQL server database if you want), but it will create the sqlite database in ''/​tmp''​ which is entirely inappropriate.

-  * The python-based Sync Server can run all by itself on a configurable port number (5000 by default) which is just fine if you are its only user in your little LAN. But even Mozilla advises to put a real webserver between you and the Sync Server. In Slackware you can use the apache webserver for this. You must install an additional apache module for this to work: [[http://​code.google.com/​p/​modwsgi/​|mod_wsgi]].
