You can create those directories yourself with the "xdg-user-dirs-update" command. I run that command immediately after setting up my user accounts.

Does anyone else have a problem where they have TWO konqueror launchers on the KDE taskbar that reappear at every login, despite me killing them every time?

Does anyone have tried to boot Slackware 14 RC1 in VM on XCP (XEN Cloud Platform) using last ISO from taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/slackware/slackware-current-iso/ ? I think the hugesmp kernel does not support the "hardware"... kernel panic!!

It's first time I see an install DVD without minimal hardware support to boot. I have no problems with the older version (13.37).
I hope the final version will has a fix, not only to install a new VM but too maintenance of the existing Slackware VM installations in XCP.

Thank you for further support.

You can use the icon only task manager - it doesn't have that problem.

@Citramonum: Just to be clear, when you say the RC1 DVD do you mean one you made yourself using the instructions in the isolinux subdirectory or some pre-made ISO you downloaded from elsewhere?

I ask because when distrowatch announced RC1 they linked to current ISOs generated on 07_Aug_2012 but RC1 actually came out after that with very large bunch of updates. As such those ISOs are not RC1 at all. In fact there is no official RC1 DVD. PatV doesn't usually create official DVD ISOs for RCs.

What's your output of "uname -a"?

the code which makes the error in /sbin/liloconfig is
Code:
ask_utf() {
 if [ "$(uname -r | cut -f 3 -d .)" -gt "23" ]; then
 dialog --defaultno --title "USE UTF-8 TEXT CONSOLE?" --yesno \
"Beginning with the 2.6.24 kernel, the text consoles default to UTF-8 mode.  \
Unless you are using a UTF-8 locale (\$LANG setting), using the old default \
of a non-UTF text console is safer until some issues with various console \
programs are addressed.  This option has no effect on the use of UTF-8 with X.  \
\"No\" is the safe choice here." 10 70
 fi
}
On my system the code yields 26 and there should be no problem since uname -a gives
Code:
Linux samsung 3.2.26 #1 SMP Tue Aug 7 12:37:07 CDT 2012 x86_64 AMD Athlon(tm) II Dual-Core M320 AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

A bug which is only visible in 32-bit Slackware and which dates back at least a year. No one seems to have noticed before (nobody uses 32-bit Slackware anymore?). In any case, it will be fixed.

On my machine I fixed this by removing the taskbar altogether and then adding a new one to the panel.

Among other solutions I recommend :

to open system settings and to define preffered application for Internet browser(example firefox or opera) and file manager (example konqueror or dolphin); (In the "stock" both are the konqueror). immediatelly, icons should be changed.

I did not encounter this bug. I did a clean install of 32 bit -current a short while ago (testing your new ISO building script).
