system.

eina-0.0.2.060-i486-1_SBo.tgz
ecore-0.9.9.060-i486-1_SBo.tgz
embryo-0.9.9.060-i486-1_SBo.tgz

Um... they all look like they came from Slackbuilds.org. Why wouldn't we just go there?

UMMMMMM...
Actually they were built with slackbuild scripts. You can't get the actual files from slackbuild.
So if you want to build your own using slackbuild scripts that's the place to go. SOme people just don't want to or can't build there own, so I offer them here. But they did not come from slackbuild, they say right on their web site that they don't keep pre-built packages there.

From their website::
We do not now nor will we ever provide precompiled packages for any of the applications for which we have SlackBuild scripts.

Yes yes yes. I know that. I've been using Slackbuilds.org for quite a while.

In my experience, building the packages from the scripts provided at the site is a very simple task. If you want to make it even simpler, use the sbopkg utility. Additionally, you did not state how you built the packages (using the SlackBuild scripts from slackbuilds.org) or what might make your packages different or better from what's commonly available (nothing).

So, while you're offer is generous, there does not see to be a lot of value added.

I'm sorry if my response to your first post seemed rude.

Regards,

Hello Widgeteye,

I think your offer is a very generous one. However, I only install software on my systems using SBo scripts, Src2pkg, or packages from trusted sources like Robby or Eric. I don't know how you've built your packages. I try to be security-minded when I install software on my Slackware systems.
No offense is intended with this post.

hitest is quite correct and likely to be representative of the majority of Slackers. Most people will be weary of your offer due to security concerns. Sign of the times I'm afraid.

Well, no problem, I just thought I would make the offer. Like I said there are a lot of people, even slack users, that don't like to build from source. No skin off my nose.

Personally, I've been using e17 for years on BW64. Lately, e17 has become much more stable and the developers are making a serious effort to get a stable version of it released in the near future. The road map for e17 is now constantly being whittled down to a stabilized feature set so a release should happen within less than 2 years IMO, maybe within a year ... I'm impressed with the work so much that I haven't looked at alternatives like KDE or GNOME in years... I'm sure your packages will be used and appreciated...
