Finally, these changes have broken Xfce as it exists in -current at the moment, but I'll try to do something about that soon.
I'm sure it won't stay that way for long. I imagine the next big update we see (hopefully soon), will contain a working Xfce 4.10.

Thanks Markus for the fix. Upgrade now progressing normally.

Son-of-a-gun - my boot time went from 3min 20sec to 1min 50sec. Wowsers!

Then again, I finally fixed all the *.new files.

Does this upgrade relate to -current?

None of the repos I've tried are showing any changes at all?

Yes, it's current, but note that it takes some hours until the mirrors have the new packages available.
Be sure to read this thread carefully before performing the updates. Otherwise you will likely broke your system!

Ahhhh, i loved this upgrade, finally after a kernel upgrade my wireless is working without me having to compile the broadcom-sta driver...

Thanks Pat for the CONFIG_BRCMSMAC compatible kernel!

Everything seems to be working right for now!

I have summed them on my SlackBlogs:

Quote:
Download gnutls, p11-kit, nettle, and wget package manually. If p11-kit is not yet available by the time you read this post, you can download the source and SlackBuild script from the source directory and build them by yourself. When you have all 4 packages ready, perform a manual installation/upgrade for this 4 packages (gnutls, p11-kit, gnutls, and wget). After this, you can continue with the rest of the package by performing
slackpkg install-new
slackpkg upgrade-all
slackpkg clean-system

It has also totally fried my Xfce 4.10 setup. I'm in, ugh, KDE at the moment and am now going to try and see if the damage to Xfce is repairable.

Okay, just got everything fixed. Thanks for your help. Next time I'll process the updates in the correct order.

New gstreamer packages - thank you! I can kick out mine now in my Banshee repository

Lets see if this upgrade runs as well as all the others before. I'm also happy that the new GIMP has finally made it - no more messing around with 3 opened windows.

Edit: gtk+3 - nice! That gives me the opportunity to upgrade some of the gnome packages needed as well.

Just a heads up for those who built the p11-kit package themselves on 32-bit -current machines, Pat's added it in.
