With one exception all is working nicely here.

Network Manager reports "no network interface found". When right clicked it reports it is not started and does not respond to checking the "Start Network Manager" box. When I installed RC1, I had the same with no network connection at all. This time the connection is present.

Is /etc/rc.d/rc.networkmanager executable so that the NetworkManager daemon is started at boot?

let's hope the release gets a decent maturation period since there have been a lot of changes recently...

As always 14.0 will be released when it is ready.
I am content to wait while Mr. Volkerding finalizes this release.

I noticed the following on the Arch Wiki Syslinux page, under the MBR section.

Quote:
Note: An alternate MBR doesn't work properly in Syslinux 4.05 - it always invokes first partition. This bug was fixed in this commit: https://git.kernel.org/?p=boot/sysli...db29040b096e45.
I see that -current has version 4.05. Is the fix present (I must admit I have not actually tested yet)? If not, too late to consider taking in the fix?

Edit: I looked at the source in -current and see that the patch hasn't been applied. This is all that is needed to fix the issue:

Code:
--- ./mbr/altmbr.S
+++ ./mbr/altmbr.S
@@ -204,7 +204,7 @@ scan_partition_table:
 5:
        decb    (partition)
        jz      boot
-       addw    $16, %bx
+       addw    $16, %si
        loopw   5b
 
        popw    %cx                     /* %cx <- 4    */

Ok, got the update done and all is well. Then again, I'm only a few minutes in, but a successful boot is a great start!

A small error in 13.37, don't know if it's fixed yet, but here it is.

When installing from a USB disk on a PC without optical drive, one has to mount the disk at some point and choose "Install from a pre-mounted directory". Then, at some later point, the installer declares that "FAT partitions have been detected", and should they be added to LILO? Choosing "no" has no consequence here, as the according "Windows" stanza gets added to LILO anyway (as default). Of course it's easy to get rid of it after rebooting, but the first time this happened, I didn't pay attention and was slightly puzzled by the ensuing "Kernel panic" after rebooting.

Much was made of the Gimp 2.8 and how it has "single window mode".
Gimp 2.8 is installed with Slackware 14 but has multiple window mode - can this be changed, or did "single window mode" get dropped by the Gimp Devs?

All you need to do is "Widows->Single-window mode"

Thanks.
I'd like to say "that'll teach me to post without exploring the menus", but it probably won't.

upon bootup with the stock generic-3.2.27 kernel, on my Asus 1215B. This does not appear in my custom 3.5.1 kernel, nor in stock generic-3.2.27 in my ThinkPad T61.

The device probed above seems to be a

Code:
00:04.0 PCI bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] Family 14h Processor Root Port
according to lspci.
I have the same netbook, so I had the same problem.

After some google searching I found that the delay/error at boot is caused
by a change in udev. They changed the way it loads drivers with firmware,
if udev detects the driver is not updated for that, it pauses for a 30seconds delay.

This can only be fixed by the author of the kernel module which is causing it.
(Thats why your 3.5 kernel is fine, probably its fixed there)

A workaround for that problem is to blacklist the offending module in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
(in my case it was brcmsmac, the wifi driver) and later load it in rc.local (modprobe brcmsmac)

Greetings
