Slackware 9.1 beta released!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Oh yes it is on the way and it works awesome with kernel 2.6.0 very good new stuff included i will love it again ;-).

here are the last changelogs ;-)

Fri Sep 12 14:09:17 PDT 2003
a/module-init-tools-0.9.14-i486-1.tgz:
Upgraded to module-init-tools-0.9.14.
d/j2sdk-1_4_2-i586-5.tgz: Change PATH and MANPATH to use
/usr/lib/java/ instead of /usr/lib/j2sdk1.4.2/.
(Suggested by Doug Asherman)
Removed extra hotplug package (noticed by Alan Brown).
+--------------------------+
Fri Sep 12 00:47:02 PDT 2003
Here comes Slackware 9.1 beta-1! (things are looking good, so expect
a very short beta cycle. :-) ZipSlack still to come.
a/hotplug-2003_08_05-noarch-3.tgz: Blacklist i810-tco which crashes
some Intel motherboards (thanks to Damjan and Piter PUNK).
a/lprng-3.8.22-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to lprng-3.8.22. Removed broken
/usr/sbin/monitor. (thanks to Dirk van Deun)
a/pkgtools-9.1.0-i486-1.tgz: Merged installpkg fixes from the version
used on the initrd. Added a menu to select default startup services.
a/sysvinit-2.84-i486-33.tgz: Uncommented the netatalk block in rc.M,
so that rc.atalk runs if executable (or otherwise does not).
Protect /etc/random-seed with chmod 600 (thanks to Daryl Bunce).
gnome/epiphany-1.0-i486-1.tgz: Added epiphany-1.0.
gnome/galeon-1.3.8-i486-1.tgz: Welcome back galeon! :-)
gnome/gdm-2.4.4.0-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gdm-2.4.4.0.
l/libart_lgpl-2.3.16-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to libart_lgpl-2.3.16.
This fixes crashes in GDM, Nautilus, and other apps. Now if I could
just figure out why scrollkeeper likes to hang for up to 20 minutes
when running scrollkeeper-update, then GNOME might be in acceptable
shape...
n/inetd-1.79s-i486-3.tgz: Added /etc/rc.d/rc.inetd.
n/nail-10.5-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to nail-10.5.
n/netatalk-1.6.3-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to netatalk-1.6.3, and
chmod 644 /etc/rc.d/rc.atalk.
n/nmap-3.30-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to nmap-3.30.
n/ntp-4.1.2-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to ntp-4.1.2.
n/php-4.3.3-i486-2.tgz: Added ./configure option --with-iconv.
(suggested by Jaroslaw Swierczynski)
n/tcpip-0.17-i486-19.tgz: In rc.inet2, start inetd using rc.inetd.
xap/mozilla-1.4-i486-2.tgz: Rebuilt with --enable-default-toolkit=gtk2.
I'm not going to wait forever for this to be declared ready (like the
old days when everyone was using glibc betas and we refused), because
more and more I get the feeling it will never get official approval.
Everyone else is doing it! ;-)
I did notice one strange problem where Mozilla just wouldn't start if
the user had run the previous gtk1-linked version of Mozilla before.
If you notice this, let me know if you find the cause.
xap/mozilla-plugins-1.4-noarch-1.tgz: Some symlinks for Mozilla.
extra/bash-completion-20030911/bash-completion-20030911-noarch-1.tgz:
Upgraded to bash-completion-20030911.

/usr/lib/java/ instead of /usr/lib/j2sdk1.4.2/

This will also work:
ln -s /usr/lib/j2sdk1.4.2 /usr/lib/java
:P

Cool

Afaik j2sdk1.4.2 is inside /usr/lib/java, so some might also put other new release there like /usr/lib/java/j2sdk1.4.3. I've j2sdk1.4.1.3 also on the redhat partition, but in /usr/java.

The PATH should be something like:

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/java/j2sdk1.4.2
export PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin
export MANPATH=$MANPATH:$JAVA_HOME/man

Install also java plugin for mozilla n netscape
$ cd /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4/plugins
ln -s /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so .

$ cd /usr/lib/netscape/plugins
ln -s /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so .

Restart netscape/moz, click help -> about plug-ins, u should also see the many java plugins there ..

Last tip:
Googling("plugger") install also plugger for moz/netscape .. Then u can have more browser experience ..
