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.

There is an error in the install script for shared-mime-info-1.0-i486-1 package. When variable $homemimedir is used for the first time, it is not yet defined while the directory name is mandatory for update-mime-database. It is necessary to define it first, or replace it with what is expected to be in that place.

Here is a patch:

Gnome wasn't removed because of bloat, it was increasingly hard to maintain, and the whole distro was suffering as a result. Now KDE releases are more sane due to their various components being released mostly in sync, hence it's less job for a packager to figure out which component requires which version of libraries it depends on.

Also, what bloat are you talking about? Some people (including me) call that features and find them useful for their daily tasks. If you think that KDE is slow, think again -- it runs as fast as ever on my 5 year old laptop with desktop effects turned on, the only thing that's slow is startup.

Oh, and I don't hear KDE users crying out for removal of XFCE, although we could certainly do that. After all, "KDE is probably the best choice for a default desktop in Slackware".

That's the wonderful thing about Slackware. We have a variety of DE/WMs to choose from, it is all good.

I do agree, but apparently some people would like to take some choices away without a good reason.

Hi , amarok-2.5 is not working with both phonon-xine and mplayer. with gstreamer it plays one song and stops. when downgraded to 2.4 phono-xine plays one song and stops also.

when converting my dvbt ts files to mpeg format for compatibility with other player using mencoder the audio and video tracks are not in sync and some of filters does not work.

The system seems stable and more mature ever since I transferred all my pim to akonadi.

qemu and dvbt perl modules needed to be recompiled but I have not thoroughly tested the system.

I am currently using kernel 3.4.4 and have only upgraded the system to current just before 14.0-rc1.

After 14.0-rc1 I upgraded only essential part but not kde-4.8.5, I will be looking into it later this week .

Hello,

as I wrote in this thread, my Huawei-UMTS-Stick was recognized by the system as GSM-Modem automatically, without executing usb_modeswitch explicitely. After the last upgrades this does not work anymore, I have to execute usb_modeswitch in order to use it as a modem.

Is this an issue with the kernel?

Markus

mencoder seems not to work very well ATM, I think it's better if you use ffmpeg.

I am having the same problem with amarok. I haven't tried reverting backends or anything. I do notice that since it quit working it displays a pop up message on startup saying phonon indicates it cannot play mp3 files. No problems playing mp3 files with any other players on the system.

Same issue here.. Installed gst-plugins-ugly from slackbuilds and Amarok can play MP3s again. I couldn't get mplayer or xine back ends working..

No default (non-hidden) directories created for new user -- Slackware 14 RC1

I created a new user and logged into KDE as that user but the standard directories (Desktop, Documents, Pictures, Music, etc.) were not created. Slackware 13.37 creates these directories. I assume this is a bug.

The problem with the xine and mplayer phonon backends is that they are unmaintained and deprecated. The only backend options today are vlc and gstreamer. The vlc backend obiously works using vlc which is not in Slackware and the gstreamer backend needs some potentialy undistributable in the US decoders to play all media.
