Is there a way to override this new mount point location and restore back to /media?

Say,

I really like the new xfce4 weather module, but what's happened to the xfce4 power manager? I can't find it.

Unfortunately no, /media is going to be obsolete now.

However there are few thing you could do, at least for now. Get rid of udisks2 and stick with udisks as long as posible or apply this patch (http://paste.lisp.org/display/129168), but it isn't long-term solution.

Apparently udisks developers decided that instead of implementing certain feature (actually useful one) the right way (read: harder), they simply break standards (FHS in this case) without worrying "what could possibly go wrong?". Sounds familiar? Yes, it's the same systemd-like mindset - "I like it that way, so it'll become new standard. XYZ isn't relevant anymore." I guess only long-term solution is to fork udisks2 and let GNOME (udisks2 will be it's default auto-mounter) , udev+systemd guys live in their Perfect World (TM) alone, while we'll be using saner software in saner way.

There is good blogpost about it - Udisks2: Another Loss For Linux

That's what I don't understand. Why /run? What are you running? usually when I mount a cd or dvd it is to view files. /media is perfect name for it. You don't "run" media.

Just my $0.02.

Just if you didn't notice before: udev has been forked.

Oh, nevermind...

It seems slackpkg was having trouble with the new xfce 'diskset' -- it didn't install xfce4 at all the first time, so I tried again and it found several more packages, but not all of them.

I ftp'd the current install sets and tried again and now I have everything I was looking for.

Maybe a lot of that 'cruft' I lost was actually packages that got missed. I'll keep looking for other missing pieces...

If you run -current it is recommended that you also read the changelog. From Sun Jul 22 22:38:36 UTC 2012:

Support XFCE series. Note that slackpkg will upgrade itself, but it still
won't know about the XFCE series during that run, so you'll need to run it
a second time to install Xfce.

Thanks, I missed that line...

upgradepkg --install-new says I now have everything installed. Looks like the xfce group was the only one missed the first time and brushed over the second time.

I wonder why it didn't install all of /xfce the second time?

you could also alternatively, on a 32bit host, do a
Code:
slackpkg install slackware
or if are using the 64bit version
Code:
slackpkg install slackware64
to install al the stuff in the distribution, exactly the remaining beside the one you already have installed (minus what you have in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist).

It seems /usr/sbin/alsaconf is broken in all distros that have moved to kmod, re this post.

I couldn't find any docs on generating /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.pcimap or /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.isamap using kmod's depmod.

Yet Another WTF moment. And I wonder why part of me grows ever more cynical with free/libre software.

One of the reasons I left the Microsoft world is the proprietary mindset. Over the past two years, with the RedHat people controlling more and more of upstream code, I am seeing that same mindset starting to infect free/libre software. There no longer seems to be a spirit of cooperation and instead I see a push toward domination and control. I'm not discounting the contributions RedHat people make to free/libre software, I'm noting attitudes and the complete lack of concern of what happens to anybody else.

This crap needs to stop one way or another.

I suppose ideally Slack users and others who would rather not deal with these sorts of arbitrary changes should patch and/or produce alternative components to replace functionality although of course its not always that simple

The current libsoup package installs only .so files into /usr/lib64 not a .la file.
This compilation-error was gone after removing webkitgtk........ (found the hint for that here Slackbuilds-users)

So the libsoup-package in current is not the culprit...

Can't you just edit /etc/fstab and get your media to mount in /media?
