Ok, good to hear. We are right now in Alpha stage with the dlg 3.8 so its good if you can upgrade and report upstream problems. The dlg 3.8 is a direct upgrade from dlg 3.6. I'm running it right now and so far seems to work without any problems. What means Alpha stage is that we have all the packages compilled and no additions unless really necessary will come in. So if you use rhythmbox please try the one from dlg 3.8 and let me know if it works for you.

Thanks for reporting.

All done - seems smoother than 3.6 at first glance.

Had a weird problem where I lost wired internet in X (as user and root) until I installed wicd. The loss of connectivity occurred in both Gnome and KDE. Weird - but it followed on from installing 3.8.

rhythmbox: error while loading shared libraries: libarchive.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Thanks for your efforts!

Make sure you do not have any info in your rc.ined1.conf (usually dhcp="yes") take out that yes.

Hmmm, ok ,many thanks, it seems that rhythmbox will need a recompile over the new libarchive. Thanks.

As a quick fix you can also install slackwares original libarchive.

Tried that and it enables Rhythmbox to start but it's still not stable - crashes al too readily with this error

Code:
Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/44-wqy-zenhei.conf", line 11: Having multiple values in <test> isn't supported and may not work as expected

(rhythmbox:9046): Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'rhythmbox' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'XI_BadDevice (invalid Device parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 7089 error_code 160 request_code 143 minor_code 40)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
   variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
Trace/breakpoint trap
Audacious works fine but had picked up the wrong device - maybe that's the problem with Rhythmobx. Doesn't seem to be a way to edit settings on it.

EDIT : Yep, something's up with the acquisition of audio devices. I'm not sure that Gnome's picking up my sound card, which works fine in current and in Debian Wheezy too. Audacious only works as I changed the audio device.

Ok this error seems due to an xorg-server bug we have fixed. Have you upgraded xorg-server with ours ?
Also you did a full install with the installer ?

Rhythbox should now work as we have reverted back to libarchive from slackware. See the other thread for the info.

Thanks - what else I've looked at has been fine. I'll check it out and let you know but won't have the opportunity for a few days at least.

I rejigged the layout of my PC and did a fresh install of an updated stable to see how your 3.8 is now.

I ran the installer and got a load of install errors (sorry, I didn't make a note of them).

To be honest, between a couple of bum installs and the problems with sound card recognition, I think things are a little way off ready, but then the release is an alpha.

Keep it up though - I like Gnome 3 a lot and would be very happy to use it on Slackware.

To be honest, the things are working way ok here. It is difficult to say what happened on your machine. It is not needed to upgrade the previous install of 3.6 but you can also install it directly. And it should work.

Again if you do show some errors I can help you, but without anything I can just say that here it works.

Only two problems I have found. I get no hibernate or suspend in the user status menu. Holding alt doesn't produce the menu. I have the alternative status extension activated but still no joy. upower shows that both hibernate and suspend are possible and indeed they function if manually activated. ck-list-sessions shows a session running.

upower -d
Daemon:
daemon-version: 0.9.21
can-suspend: yes
can-hibernate: yes
on-battery: yes
on-low-battery: no
lid-is-closed: no
lid-is-present: yes
is-docked: no

uname -r
3.11.0

I was getting this error in /var/log/messages
porteus dbus[2302]: [system] Rejected send message, 2 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.55" (uid=1000 pid=3107 comm="/usr/bin/gnome-shell ") interface="org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager" member="CanHibernate" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination=":1.8" (uid=0 pid=2864 comm="/usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon --no-daemon ")

I added the following to /etc/dbus-1/system.d/ConsoleKit.conf which suporessed the error message, but I still get no entries in the menu:
<allow send_destination="org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit"
send_interface="org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager"
send_member="CanHibernate" />

Any pointers where I can start investigating. dmesg and other logs give me no usable information?

PS: The other problem is that sound-juicer segfaults ... but I consider this secondary to the above issue. Thanks.

maybe is better to let saxa know that you're testing this on porteus, not slackware.

Hi, thanks for the report. I have to basically get some time to work on this 2 issues. Sound-juicer needs probably a rebuild, I will check that.

But for the suspend and hibernation, it worked out in 3.6, now 3.8 I wanted to check this closer as it does not work on my laptop too.
