live long, work long! :)

Hi! I want to thank him about the great contribution! I have some questions related to his packages.

1) After the latest glibc-zoneinfo upgrade in the stable Slackware64-14 tree, there are some packages in "Allien's" multilib/14.0 directory refreshed, but the mentioned glibc-zoneinfo is not. Can one use the package from current or since it is a noarch package the official one can be used in multilib enviroment?

2) After the latest patched recompilation VLC (the restricted) can not show subtitles in bulgarian language. Actually only xine do it. Umplayer and Kplayer can not, but they always had some troubles about that. We use few different locales and this can explain sometimes the problem, but since i am using subtitles form the same sorce and they seems to have the same locale like others before, i suspect there is something wrong with VLC. Probably i need an advice.

3) I have installed ffmpeg from the restricted repository. When i try to compile Audacity from slackbuilds.org passing FFMPEG=yes, i.e. using the installed ffmpeg some errors occur and compilation stops. Does someone else face the same problem?

ffmpeg support in audacity doesn't work with ffmpeg >= 0.11.x (http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.0/audio/audacity/)

You can just keep the official glibc-zoneinfo package. In fact, if you install the full glibc package then it is not even required that you install glibc-solibs and glibc-zoneinfo since the files of those packages are all included in glibc as well. The solibs and zoneinfo packages are meant for people who do not need to compile programs and therefore do not need the full glibc package.

No idea about that, I did not change anything related to subtitles, so the bug may be in VLC, or perhaps even in a Slackware update.

Thank you for the clarification!

About Q2, it was my faul, i found it. I have chose a subtitle font which seems to be unavailable to vlc. It was terminus. The change of the font solved the problem with the subtitles. VLC still the best player.
