@GazL - Nice catch on the .xinitrc. I see the same.
Figures :P Things work fine with fvwm2 on my Slackware 14 beta 1 vm (I have yet to snapshot it and then upgrade it). I'll see what happens after I update it.

I'm guessing that 14.0 with ship with 3.2.26 unless some bugs are discovered. We are getting closer.

NetworkManger missing from Services Menu:

Shouldn't /etc/rc.d/rc.networkmanager be included under "Select/deselect system daemons" in the "SELECT STARTUP SERVICES TO RUN" dialog box? I would think this would be a service that most would want to enable on startup.

The option CONFIG_FB_VESA=y in the RC kernel is causing NVIDIA's blob to spill the following error.
[   47.491112] NVRM: Your system is not currently configured to drive a VGA console
[   47.491114] NVRM: on the primary VGA device. The NVIDIA Linux graphics driver
[   47.491116] NVRM: requires the use of a text-mode VGA console. Use of other console
[   47.491117] NVRM: drivers including, but not limited to, vesafb, may result in
[   47.491118] NVRM: corruption and stability problems, and is not supported.
For some unknown reason, vesafb stopped working with the newest versions of the blob. Reference is there.

I'm pretty ignorant as to deciphering what all that means and the error message seems harmless to me, just thought I should mention it.

Please do not kill the penguins! Furthermore, better resolution on the console is not bad.

If there is a real issue though, I hope nVidia will solve it.

Bug in the installer:
When installing slackware in a qemu-kvm PC using virtio drivers, all virtio devices are available ("fdisk -l" shows /dev/vdX devices) but the installer can't see /dev/vdX so I have to do that :
I install slackware without virtio drivers so I have /dev/sdX devices then I restart the cdrom with virtio enabled, chroot to my installation then modifying lilo.conf, fstab and create a initrd.gz successfully.

Please Remove KDE From Slackware

just as GNOME was removed. XFCE is probably the best choice for a default desktop in Slackware. Just LOOK at the bloat of KDE!

Furthermore, Perl 5.16.0 is broken in respect to CPAN. I finally avoided using CPAN by manually creating packages for modules that I'd normally install via CPAN. The latter effort could have been avoided if the Perl installation weren't broken.

Anyway, I knew in advance that the upgrade to Slackware 14 wasn't going to be clean or easy. I was right ...

Bug in curl ?
When executing "./configure" script of ncmpcpp-0.5.10, I have this message :
checking for curl-config... /usr/bin/curl-config
/usr/bin/curl-config: line 138: CPPFLAG_CURL_STATICLIB: command not found
Ok it's not an error.

I looked at "/usr/bin/curl-config" and I replace :
if test "X${prefix}/include" = "X/usr/include"; then
  echo "$(CPPFLAG_CURL_STATICLIB)-I${prefix}/include"
by :
if test "X${prefix}/include" = "X/usr/include"; then
  echo "$CPPFLAG_CURL_STATICLIB-I${prefix}/include"
and it works.

It seems $CPPFLAG_CURL_STATICLIB has no reason to be a command, doesn't it ?

Edit 1: I'm wrong, it doesn't work. "./configure" works but "make" failed because of curl.
Edit 2: "make" failed also without modifying "/usr/bin/curl-config" on i486. "make" works perfectly on x86_64 with or without modification of curl-config. I hope I've not forgot anything and I don't lose your time.
Edit 3: I just retry to compile ncmpcpp on a clean slackware-current (i486) installation and "make" works.
