I wonder if you would consider posting or releasing the config you used for 3.4.9 I have been using kernel 3.5.2 with Slackware 13.37 from the day it was released without any apparent problems. Yes I'm one of those users 'latest greatest - bleeding edge'. I always use your generic config as a make oldconfig with a few changes to tune my system and accept the default for those questions I don't fully understand. The gap from 3.2 to 3.6 which is only a few days off is starting to become a large one.
Anyway it would be appreciated if you have the time.
thanks

P.S. I will be installing current on a spare partition as soon as I reboot.

Thanks! It's exactly what I want.

By the way, for the website. Even a wordpress website could do a nice platform. I can gladly help if you need some (wordpress website, logo, graphic design, etc. ).

I just noticed that the version of rp-pppoe in "-current" is 4 years old. Time for a newer version?

We've got 3.10, and 3.11 was released a few days ago.

Anyway, now is certainly not the time.

What about Git? I guess update of a dev tool like that is a safe bet.

Anyway, I've just noticed some manpage files have 'x' bit in them. A quick search pointed out they are: gptfdisk, libkarma, google-chrome.

Besisdes, there are some that were not gzipped.

Just a very very minor issue but still, for the sake of consistency.

Python 2.7.3 Idle seg faults

Running python IDLE when I type "help('modules')" from within a text terminal (ctrl+alt+F1) python seg faults as follows:

Code:
Python 2.7.3 (default, Jul  3 2012, 21:16:07) 
[GCC 4.7.1] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> help('modules')

Please wait a moment while I gather a list of all available modules...


** (process:2748): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'GMountMountFlags' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'

** (process:2748): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'GDriveStartFlags' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'

** (process:2748): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'GSocketMsgFlags' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'
/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py:57: GtkWarning: could not open display
  warnings.warn(str(e), _gtk.Warning)
/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/keybinder/__init__.py:26: GtkWarning: IA__gdk_keymap_get_for_display: assertion `GDK_IS_DISPLAY (display)' failed

  from _keybinder import *
Segmentation fault
If I run the same commands in a terminal emulator from XFCE then I get the a list of modules as expected. In Slackware 13.37 python 2.6 works fine in both a text terminal and terminal emulator.

So far I have tried re-compiling python, compiling with static libs and googling the above warnings but so drawn a blank. I reached my limits with this so post here in the hope that someone else can resolve this.

I am running Slackware 14 RC3 although this problem also exists in 14 RC2.

Regards,

Chris

GPG-KEY in Slackware 14

Hi,
Im quite happy we are almost there for a new version, but...

Wouldn't it be nicer if we had a renewed GPG-KEY to sign Slackware 14.0 packages?

** The current GPG-KEY is from 2003 and WILL EXPIRE at 21st december 2012 **

I know that many people thinks the world is gonna end around this time, but... I'm pretty sure Slackware is going to survive this impending doom, so ;-)

Same here on my --current. It shouldn't affect many users, because clean install will contain modified files, but maybe we should mention it in CHANGES_AND_HINTS. Or is it already there?

It's already there

in /etc/modprobe.d/ that you will need to remove: blacklist.conf,
bluetooth.conf, isapnp.conf, psmouse.conf, and usb-controller.conf
See /etc/modprobe.d/README for a more detailed explanation.

Shame on me then. This happens when I run -current and don't pay too much attention during updates...

Quick note, running xfce in a fresh install of Slackware RC-3, I noticed the automount function for usb sticks in thunar (via Thunar volume manager) doesn't seem to work.

Plugging in a usb stick doesn't show up in Thunar. Though I can manually mount and unmount it via the terminal. And I did click the automounting/hot-plugging checkmarks in the mount removable media config page in XFCE settings. I don't know if this a persistent thunar volume manager bug in xfce 4.10 or I may be missing something.

Any ideas?

Did you remember to put your user in the plugdev group?

Hi. I'm using Slackware 14 RC3 on virtualbox. Having upgraded from RC2 to RC3, all my window decorations under xfce disappeared: no more borders, close, maximize... The mouse icon also changed and got replaced by an "X".
Code:
xfwm4 --replace
did the trick for me. Anyone had the same problem?
