It came from udisks2 multi-seat patch. I guess in multi-seat setup it's reasonable and useful, although I don't get why udisks can't simply do the same permission magic in /media. Lennart Poettering isn't the bad guy this time, but well, patch came from another Red Hat guy, so you'll never know

A quick grep through the source showed that an easy fix for this is to add in:

Code:
  --datadir=/usr/doc/${PKGNAM}-$VERSION \
to the slackbuild. Not sure if --datarootdir might be the better option but the above change certainly resolves the issue on my system.

Perl is usually quite stable, but any time any codebase is touched, the possibility exists of introducing bugs.

I get the following error message on startup:

Code:
udevd[1049]: Could not find module by name='rtc_cmos'
Other detail, very small. Compared to 13.37, LILO's bootsplash image looks a little "blurry". Not as clean as the old one.

From the ChangeLog:
Code:
xap/sane-1.0.22-i486-3.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched to fix compiling against v4l-utils.
  Changed udev rules to use group lp instead of scanner.  It turns out that
  this is likely what's been interfering with printer detection since we
  switched CUPS to use libusb instead of the usblp kernel module.  SANE
  would come along and switch the group on multifunction printer/scanners
  to "scanner", and then CUPS would no longer be able to use them.  The
  kernel module wasn't affected by this since it didn't use the raw USB
  device node and didn't care who owned it.  Anyway, making this switch
  gets things pretty close to how they were before.  The good news is that
  printers should be detected and configurable without having to look at
  lsusb output or writing custom udev rules, however, users will need to
  be in group lp in order to use the scanner.  We'll do this automatically
  for console logins.
The user gets automatically added indeed to the 'lp' group. Only the 'adduser' dialog still shows the old list of groups, without lp. Maybe add it for consistency's sake.

Hello everyone,
when it starts X.Org Server on Slackware 14RC2 displays the banner of the "Build Operating System" with Slackware 13.37.

Code:
X.Org X Server 1.12.3
Release Date: 2012-07-09
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0
Build Operating System: Slackware 13.37 Slackware Linux Project
Current Operating System: Linux lotarpc 3.2.27-smp #1 SMP Mon Aug 13 16:23:23 CDT 2012 i686
Kernel command line: auto BOOT_IMAGE=Linux ro root=806 vt.default_utf8=0 resume=/dev/sda5                                                                        
Build Date: 11 July 2012  12:35:33AM

Hello, welcome to LQ

Don't worry, /etc/slackware-version will be updated when Slackware 14 will be officially released, as well as .txt files at the root of the Slackware tree.

With a bit of luck /etc/os-release will as well.

Thanks for the welcome .

Since the first beta, Pat has updated the version in /etc/slackware-version.

Code:
$ cat /etc/slackware-version 
Slackware 14.0
I think the solution is to recompile xorg-server, replacing the parameters in the "configure".

From

Code:
./configure \
  [...]
  --with-os-name="Slackware 13.37" \
  --with-os-vendor="Slackware Linux Project" \
  [...]
To

Code:
./configure \
  [...]
  --with-os-name="Slackware 14.0" \
  --with-os-vendor="Slackware Linux Project" \
  [...]

Or

Code:
$SLACKVERSION=`cat /etc/slackware-version`

./configure \
  [...]
  --with-os-name=${SLACKVERSION} \
  --with-os-vendor="Slackware Linux Project" \
  [...]

I run both 13.37 and current, mounted in 13.37 as /current, so it seems it that I looked into /etc/ instead of /current/etc/. Oh, well

1. Go to http://mirrors.slackware.com/mirrorlist/
2. Choose an rsync mirror
3. Do
Code:
rsync -avz rsync://your.favourite.mirror/slackware-current /your/local/dir
3. Read ftp://mirrors.unixsol.org/slackware/...nux/README.TXT
