I feel that having an ancient program doing its job just well is one of key elements of Slackware, take ls or sed as an example, or vi (elvis).
I also find cool that there are few other X related programs that fit this category - xclac, oclock etc... Bumping only a version up, or reinventing the wheel is what bothered me most on other distros.
And I just get bored of "yet another" software project that end up in mediocrity.
The mc is an shining example of an ancient program doing it's job right. And again the revival of development brought key improvements (just about right time) while didn't bloat it or made it mediocre.

Just my 2c

Lilyterm is a good terminal, better and lighter than XFCE terminal that I've been using up to now.

Now I can get rid of XFCE as that is all I was using from it.

Anyone else who uses a stand-alone file-manager is also free to respond. I was just curious what TexMex was using since he said he was dropping xfce.

I use thunar but it's the only bit of xfce I need so I was looking for options.

I couldn't get either your 0.7.2 slackbuilds.org build or the 0.8.1 source to build on my current64 + system.
Code:
linking binary 'emelfm2'
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-slackware-linux/4.7.1/../../../../x86_64-slackware-linux/bin/ld: objs/src/dialogs/e2_file_info_dialog.o: undefined reference to symbol 'dlclose@@GLIBC_2.2.5'
/usr/lib64/gcc/x86_64-slackware-linux/4.7.1/../../../../x86_64-slackware-linux/bin/ld: note: 'dlclose@@GLIBC_2.2.5' is defined in DSO /lib64/libdl.so.2 so try adding it to the linker command line
/lib64/libdl.so.2: could not read symbols: Invalid operation
And the 0.8.1 complains about undeclared dbus references, though as far as I can see pkg-config returns the correct flags and the header file that defines the missing reference is there. At this point I'm not prepared to spend any more time trying to get this to build.

Thanks anyway though.

I meant to say - 0.7.2 should build fine. I just built it on my test system. My update in /pending addresses those issues with 0.8.1.

Is there a public url or are the pending builds private?


My box has a number of non-standard updates on it that may be throwing it a wobbly, most notably glib 2.32 and gtk+2. 2.24.10

Quite what the libdl.so error is though i have no idea as I wouldn't expect that to be related.

It's possible I've broken something somewhere along the road, though I haven't had problems building anything else yet.

It's actually no longer in pending so it looks like it's been approved and will be in the next set of updates. I also tested 0.8.1 on -current and it builds fine.

I'm not sure why 0.7.2 isn't building on your system, though. Works on a stock 13.37 x86_64 install here.

I like 'xfe'

http://roland65.free.fr/xfe/

Although it doesnt group files together in an intelligent way, so instead of grouping all the video files (.avi, .mkv, .mp4, etc) together, you get them separated by other file types (which also arnt grouped together), so you have to go hunting for a particular filetype. I might suggest that on the mailing list actually.

Other than than that, I like it.

I use ROX-Filer, but I've used others in the past like PCManFM and XFE. I don't like Thunar because it doesn't auto-refresh when something changes (unlike ROX), and I don't need all those buttons.

I would like to see LXDE and along with FLTK the Equinox Desktop Environment included as choices in addition to the current offerings. More choices is good.

I'm a long-time Slackware user (since 3.0) but sometimes slow to adopt new technologies. Can someone explain, please, the advantages of using a file-manager application (compared to the traditional ls, find, grep, mv, cp, rm, less, etc)?

@ttk: Midnight Commander aka mc was included at least in Slackware 3.3 and maybe before. Do you consider that new?
