Sounds like a package may have been installed or upgraded which was not suited for your Slackware architecture (32-bit vs. 64-bit).

I am not sure what is going on, but it worked, then I updated, and it stopped working. I have do a re-install with current as of tuesday night, and it still does not work, either with the pre-compiled binaries from rarlabs, or one that I just did from slackbuilds.org. I am using amd_64 if that helps.

Ok I will have to look at that. The odd thing is that I pulled down the latest packages from a local mirror Tuesday night, to do a fresh install, and I am still having this problem.

Now I feel stupid. I had a bunch of packages that I have built along the way, and I have not updated them. I only recently moved to 64 bit, and I did not think to update the packages at all. I have removed them and it works now. (That includes an old rar/unrar package that I created)

Thanks for the help!

python -c "import PyKDE4"

failed with:

Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/PyKDE4/__init__.py", line 1, in <module>
    import sys,DLFCN
ImportError: No module named DLFCN
I'm running 64-current + multilib. Does anyone else has this problem?

It's caused by virtualenv, not Slackware's fault.

May I suggest not specifying the absolute path to a specific image file in some *.desktop files? When you change the icon theme the 'old' icon doesn't change and stands out.

Example:

Firefox follows icon theme:
Code:
Icon=firefox
Thunderbird doesn't:
Code:
Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/thunderbird.png
PS. RC4 runs great for me so far

On a fresh install, if I try to wget an HTTPS site I get an error:

Turns out I have to run /usr/bin/c_rehash to generate symlinks in /etc/ssl/certs, and then they both work. I see that OpenSSL's doinst.sh should run c_rehash. Is there some reason why doinst.sh isn't creating them?

Hmm, maybe this already got fixed in ca-certificates-20120623-noarch-2. I'll have to try it.

Strange. The c_rehash command is run by "/usr/sbin/update-ca-certificates" which is called by the doinst.sh script of the ca-certificates package.

If you have a Pentium M with 400MHz frontside bus then your CPU does not support PAE, which is enabled by default in the smp kernel. You can use the non-smp kernel to start the system and then build a smp-kernel with PAE disabled.

Expired /usr/share/ca-certificates/spi-inc.org/spi-ca-2003.crt

I found an expired certificate in the new ca-certificates-20120623-noarch-2 package using a weekly cron script based on code from Alien Bob:

http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/watc...-certificates/

The expired certificate is:

!!! SSL CERTIFICATE EXPIRY !!!
==============================
The following SSL certificates in /etc/ssl/certs are expired or
will expire within the next 31 days:
--Expiration Date------- --Certificate---------------------
Jan 14 16:29:17 2007 GMT /usr/share/ca-certificates/spi-inc.org/spi-ca-2003.crt

I don't know if it has been noticed, but just in case, I must post that there are known problems with the "eject" version in Slackware 14.0 RC4.

There is a discussion in this thread: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...297/page2.html

Woodsman has pointed that the Arch team has deployed a set of patches to solve the issue: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/25405

It seems there is problem with tumbler and unmounting external drives that contain video files. Tumbler tries to create thumbnails through the gstreamer plugin but it fails, freezes (the files remain open), and you cannot eject the device. Thunar displays an error (attached png). If you kill tumblerd, or turn thumbnails off (through Thunar's options), the problem goes away.

This is an already filed bug.

The Ubuntu fellas have a patch for this (attached txt). I tested it and it works. I'm not saying this should be applied to Slackware, but I will use it if it doesn't as it solves my problem.
