Thanks for the headsup gmgf, but it seems that this patch is quite debian specific, so we would need to modify it to be more slackware friendly. In any case its better if you tell us which programs do not work for you ?

printer setup, in gnome-control-center, autentification password does not work, does not accept the root password.
and probably all other progran who need root password does not work.

Hi gmgf,

I just rebuild the package on 32bit and now authentication works.
thanks for the help.

I used the .desktop file from slackware, we forgot to ship this.

Good..., i think a good idea it's added a 'cups-pk-helper' package in your dropline project
because it's needed for the gnome-control-center printer setup.

http://www.freedesktop.org/software/...lper/releases/

maybe, another good idea it's compile libsoup, with 'glib-networking'

http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/sourc...tworking/2.34/

Hi gmgf,

we will consider adding cups-pk-helper


libsoup is compiled with glib-networking
checking for glib-networking (glib TLS implementation)... yes

I'm not sure 100% but I think we use the slackwares one. Need to check that, thanks for the heads up gmgf.

package gdm probably, need enhancement:

the /etc/passwd file in slackware

contain this

gdm:x:42:42:GDM:/var/stat/gdm:/bin/bash (this is for old gdm before version 3)

it need probably changed by

gdm:x:42:42:GDM:/var/lib/gdm:/bin/bash (this is for gdm version 3)

because the new gdm work directory is /var/lib/gdm

this new directory is already your package.

the gdmsetup file in your package are probably obsolet

because i think gdm-setup, is not present in gdm version3
