my mistake....
from http://calibre-ebook.com/download_linux

"Make sure your system has python ≥ 2.7.1 not 3.x"
But the rest is ok. Slackware's 2.6.6 is too old and it is the problem

> Hello,
> if I remember correctly, the latest versions of calibre require python

> I can't promise that it works
> I hope I could help.

>> Hello list,
>> Wondering if the maintainer of the Calibre package could update to the
>> newest version...  The one on SBo is 0.7.45 and the latest is 0.8.55, and
>> there's quite a long time period between those versions.  I have tried using
>> the new source with the existing SlackBuild, but it fails in a number of
>> places, especially the patching lines of the script.  Commented out all the
>> patches but it still fails and I've reached the limit of my knowledge on how
>> to fix it.
>> Any chance of an updated build script?
>> Thanks a lot.
