Adding "-Wno-deprecated-declarations" can solve the problem, but it will probably cause another problem in the future as it has been deprecated, so i didn't take this option while fixing the problem

Chess, there is an error mate-build-extra.sh. Line 50 has this:
Code:
extra/mate-sensors=applet
and should be:
Code:
extra/mate-sensors-applet
Otherwise, mate-build-extra.sh fails.

So far, it is working GREAT! :-) I was surprised to see how fast the packages built. I also have a VM with current and I had no problems building it there too.

Excellent, thanks for posting back. Glad to hear it is working well. And you're right, it really don't take too long to build -- maybe 30 minutes or so, depending on your machine.

Again, thanks for reporting the typo and for the feedback.

I had a problem when trying to change my font hinting. When I clicked on Appearance, fonts tab, changed hinting to slight. When I did, it locked everything up. I had to do a Ctrl - Alt - Backspace to escape. When logging in again, I got the toolbar became bigger and it looked like app menu was repeated. I got the same behavior with a brand new account also.

Hmm, I just did this and didn't have the lockup. Is this on -current or 14.0 and x86 or x86_64? Any custom font settings in ~/.fonts.conf or in /etc/fonts/conf.avail or /etc/fonts/conf.d?

Hmm...just tried it again with another brand new user. This is on a Slackware64-14.0. I'm using an nvidia card with dual-monitors. I have a ~/.fonts.conf but new users did not. The only custom thing that I have is 10-autohint in /etc/fonts/conf.d.

Given that I was not able to replicate it in my VM and my current desktop has been acting up, I am going to blame it on my hardware.

Let me go ahead and try to build that set and see if I get better results.

I went ahead and tried something else, just to make sure. It appears that the freeze only occurred when my xorg.conf was set up to use both monitors as separate. I went ahead and changed it to Xinerama, and that did the trick. Perhaps someone that has dual-monitor can try this out?
