I've noticed a tiny problem: slackpkg package's version and shell script's version are not aligned:

/var/log/packages/:
slackpkg-2.82.0-noarch-12

but:

# slackpkg
slackpkg - version 2.81.1
[..]

Installing Slackware64 14.1 rc2 in an EFI enabled VM through vmplayer, even choosing the no KMS menu entry of grub (aka nomodeset), handover occurs and output of "cat /proc/fb" is:
0 svgadrmfb

Is it a limitation of vmplayer or does someone observe the same behavior on a real machine or with another virtualization tool?

If it's an easy fix, it would be nice to have locale(1) and localedef(1) man-pages please. It's not a new issue as they've also been missing in previous releases. I'd assume that they'd come out of the glibc build somehow, but for whatever reason it seems we don't get them.

I just had a quick look and no man pages come from glibc they come out of man-pages from kernel.org and the latest (which we are only .01 behind) doesn't even have it.

A web search comes up with one and the copyright notice on it indicates that it originated in the Debian project.

Thanks wildwiz. I'd noticed they were in other distros so perhaps they've all borrowed them from debian.
Looking at the glibc.Slackbuild it doesn't look like the first time this sort of things has had to be done:
Code:
# Another manpage abandoned by GNU...
#mkdir -p usr/man/man1
#cp -a $PKG/usr/man/man1/ldd.1.gz usr/man/man1

I asked Denis Barbier if he knew where to find recent versions of man (1) locale* and he answered:

Non, les développeurs de la glibc ne veulent pas faire de pages de man, et il y a peu de choses dans la doc TeXinfo. Je crois que la meilleure source est locale{,def} --help, malheureusement.
Si tu as des questions précises, je peux voir si j'arrive à rassembler mes souvenirs.

If you have specific questions, I can see if I can gather my memories.

Just a follow-up on the hardware clock thread that might be worth thinking about for release.

Thanks Didier. I've worked out what I needed to know:
localedef --no-archive -f ISO-8859-15 -i en_GB en_GB.iso885915

I just hate missing man-pages, and it would have been a handy reference while I was trying to remember the syntax.


P.S. I had worked through the glibc info pages, but yes, there was minimal information in there. Think I got there in the end though.

The same in /usr/doc/xfig-3.2.5c/{,html}. These bad permissions come from the source package :

Booting huge kernel on 64-rc2, I see:
Code:
Warning! ehci_hcd should always be loaded before uhci_hcd and ohci_hcd, not after
Don't know how significant this warning is but I'm guessing it's being shown because of these config options:
CONFIG_USB_EHCI_HCD=m
CONFIG_USB_UHCI_HCD=y

I suspect they either both need to be builtin, or both need to be modules to avoid this warning.
