I'm getting hangs in KDE-4.6.1 from too many sockets being open. Killing X and logging back in temporarily fixes the problem, but I can't seem to find much on a fix. I'm not sure if its KDE or xorg related, since I upgraded both yesterday.

Only found one issue so far with 1337. Quite a strange one where the mouse/touchpad combination is quite unresponsive, but only in Firefox. Its fine under normal desktop navigation tasks, and using it with Google Chrome is no problem.

Maybe some hidden config switch within firefox?

Other than that, no problems to report.

FF 3.6x of 4.xBETA?

I have (had) similar problems with FF4beta: touchpad scrolling is a no-go. To be honest: It didn't work in Windows either, where I fixed it with a fairly recent driver ( ALPS ) What kind of touchpad do you have?

PS: so if you are using FF4,. it's not a L33T problem, just a FF4.beta problem.

*sigh* I was hoping Slackware would choose MySQL v5.5 for this l33t release. MySQL v5.5 has been released as Generally Available (GA) for quiet some time now.

sjampoo; Using FF 3.6.15 from Slackware. However, have just upgraded KDE to the latest from Alien Bobs site, and this particular issue seems resolved.

yes, but it also introduces too many changes that *might* break compatibility with other packages as well. I think MySQL 5.5.x should be included in the next next Slackware release (hopefully 14.0)

Someone was asking about the new version of Emacs (I can't find the thread/post right now) and it has indeed been added:

Sat Mar 12 21:07:12 UTC 2011
ap/lxc-0.7.4-i486-1.txz: Upgraded.
e/emacs-23.3-i486-1.txz: Upgraded.
n/iptraf-ng-1.0.2-i486-2.txz: Rebuilt.
Created the /var/lib/iptraf/ working directory.
extra/emacspeak/emacspeak-33.0-i486-1.txz: Upgraded.

The version number of the new release seems a bit gimmicky to me, but oh well.

I disagree. When I read the new version number in the slackware-current changelog I grinned from ear to ear. Slackware is unique.

The recently announced cpupowerutils ( https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/3/11/105 ) needs a shared libpci library which the pciutils package does not provide. Is there any chance to include it?
I see pciutils got upgraded today, shame i didnt request this before.

Gnuplot may also receive an update to 4.4.3. If gd-2.0.35 is updated to 2.0.36 then gd will need the patch described here in order for gnuplot to work properly.

Not by default.
Switching to Gallium requires Mesa to be rebuilt with -enable-gallium-r600 flag followed by xf86-ati reinstall. I did it 5 minutes ago on Mesa 7.10 and ati from git, so can't say anything about Mesa 7.9 and xf86-ati 6.14. If you would like to ask if my configuration makes working 3D acceleration, the answer is "no" as for now.
