Hi ho,
there are two packages available.

 * https://www.simulated-universe.de/povmodeler-1.1.4-x86_64-1hjl.tgz
 * https://www.simulated-universe.de/povmodeler-1.1.4-x86_64-2hjl.tgz

for slackware-14.1 and slackware-14.2

I experienced segfaults on first start. I could not find the cause for now.
While it has vanished with the next start it has been hard to identify.

While checking a coredump I found an iterator through the action list failed.
But the debugging on slackware is hard, as the X11 in a vm runs without any
accelleration support. Everything is very slow.

So look out for those crashes. Maybe I got some more ideas about the situation
that will cause this.

I did not created any slackbuild-script but added the slack-desc file to the
repo. As it should be easy to be build on a slackware distro now I think I will
not deliver the slack-build script.
