Many thanks to the team for keeping the ball rolling. Not a casual upgrade at all....it will wait for the weekend indeed.

Sniff - sniff - is that the interwebs heating up again ? :) Now that's what I call an update !!

Again - thanks guys for all the hard work ..

I just ran 'em and I already notice a difference! Things seem a little smoother an quicker.
But it could be a "placebo effect" cuz of my positive attitude towards SW64-C. ;-)

Great news and impressive work! Thanks to the Slack team and Robby in particular. :-)

ponce 06-11-2009 02:30 AM

tnx also from me to the slackware team and to robby in particular for this super update :)

slackware current is becoming brighter day by day :cool:

OMG! that's a larger update than the one for KDE.

Is replacing X packages any different than the other updates?

Su-Shee 06-11-2009 04:16 AM

Yes, it is.

It's huge, it's essential (if KDE doesn't work, I can always start a different windowmanager..), so many things depend on it properly running...

I've tried it just once and actually cried. :) (And never tried again :) )

I'm really really really grateful that you guys did this, I'm totally waiting for the lucky 13...

Make sure having HAL running because xorg-server uses it for input hotplugging.
Otherwise you won't be able to use your input devices inside X.

Interesting. I have HAL running, updated my hal.conf in /etc's d-bus directory and rebooted, but when I started X there was no keyboard or mouse response. I did a hard reset and checked /var/log/X.org.log and saw messages that said AllowEmptyInput is on, followed by my mouse and keyboard being disabled.

I added:

Option "AllowEmptyInput" "off"

to the Section "ServerLayout" of my xorg.conf, and now I have my input devices back.

rvdboom 06-11-2009 08:29 AM

In fact, the good way is to disable the Device sections for input devices in the xorg.conf file. They should not be defined there anymore, everything is done through hal.
