Thank you so much!!! That fixed my one and only bug with Slackware-current. Sir, I owe you a beer!

Running Tail -100 against /var/log/Xorg.0.log isn't telling me much either (may need to increase the number of lines?)
I get the same type of error mentioning serverauth.some_number

udevd[1464]:

To The preying mantis in chief:
when booting the install DVD dated 'Thu Aug 9 22:34:59 UTC 2012' generated by the mirror-slackware-current-1.80.sh script, I get this :

"udevd[1464]: could not find module by name='rtc_cmos'"

is this a bug? The install completes without any other unusual occurrences.

FWIW I am going for the "most bugs found without fixing any" title
thanks
john

Yes, I had that but after running Dolphin I now only have one Dolphin file cabinet icon.

It is the file manager, which gets reset from Dolphin to Konqueror. I noticed this before the RC update, it happens even on a new KDE setup (e.g. $HOME/.kde and friends removed.) Just reset it back to Dolphin again in the System Settings.

JRE Security Risk

I don't know whether this is of interest to anyone (please forgive me if it's not), but the version of JRE in Slackware Current was today flagged as a security risk by Mozilla --- it's being disabled in Firefox and Thunderbird by default.

An update is available from Oracle (JRE version 7 update 5).

Again, if this is not the time or place, please don't nail me --- I'm a poor cretin and seek merely to help!

Edit: The mirror at which I was looking appears not to have been updated for months. My thanks and apologies, RuarÝ!

there is no jre in current. just a SlackBuild in extra. it is up to you the user to follow security issues and update if you need to.

Edit: The Change log entry from Fri Jul 13 23:14:15 UTC 2012 states: l/jre-6u27-i586-1.txz: Removed.

I just blacklisted that module. This was discussed on another thread as well. I wouldn't mind knowing why it is popping up now, but I haven't looked into it. Changes in udev and the kernel...

Slackware is a bit too technical for use as my main Linux install but it is fun to play with and figure out from within VirtualBox

You just need to give Slackware some time. Trust me on this. Slackware grows on you. Slackware is very elegant in its logical simplicity.

I noticed some alsaconf and xorgsetup hiccups in Slack14-current RC1

On trying both 32 and 64 bit current as fresh installs on the same machine and sound card (Pentium dual core E2220, G41 intel chipset motherboard and Esoniq 1371 PCI sound card); Using alsaconf doesn't seem to detect the older PCI based sound cards like the Esoniq ES1371.

On 32 bit current, alsaconf fails to detect the PCI card, then asks for proceeding to detect ISA legacy, picking yes, alsaconfig picks one, but not the proper card. Yet when I rerun alsaconf for the second time, it properly identifies and detects the Esoniq ES1371 PCI card.

On the 64 bit current, running alsaconfig defaults to asking for ISA legacy and fails to find any sound card when picking yes. Same result when rerunning alsaconf again.

The old xorgsetup script runs and detects my nvidia card, but detects the LCD monitor as three monitors and related screen xorg settings (screen 0, screen 1, screen 2), shown in the generated xorg.conf
