Getting close! Can't wait!

Excellent news, soon those of us without the time and skill to run -current will share all the good things as well :).

Slackware 13.1 RC1 is working great on my AAO Netbook!

Upgrading to 13.1 RC1 atm. :) It is closer!

weird chars in terminal
 
just upgraded to the latest changelog on -current. I have one problem though and I'm sure it is something I missed out on but I'm getting weird characters in the terminal when I use pkgtool.

Here's the screenshot.

I also experienced those weird chars in the terminal this morning during kernel compile (machine was up-to-date with May 9 -current updates).

I'll appreciate if someone can provide some tips.

BTW, I'm using XFCE terminal. I tried Konsole and Roxterm and both seem to be fine.

@tuxrules: I'll take a stab: Is your locale by any chance set to utf-8? Thats the only thing I can think of that might cause something like that, since utf might bork ncurses, since it is not very friendly to utf from what I can remember.

If your not running current and are still with stock 13.0 you are a in for a treat. KDE is solid now IMO.

For some reason everything seems a bit snappier as well, although I've been working on a slower machine for a couple of weeks, this machine felt a little laggier prior to the upgrade from -current as of about 2 weeks ago with Eric's 4.4.2 packages to 13.1rc1. Again this might just be a Jedi mind trick, but I'll assume it did in fact get a little more responsive just because it makes me happier to do so! :)

I agree actually, I got a 8800GT and I got compiz fully integrated and its still feels lighter than my XP partition.

Dang, just right after i got 13.1b installed, and now I have to update again.

Thanks Jeebizz, my locale is not set to utf-8. /etc/profile.d/lang.sh shows this

Code:

# en_US is the Slackware default locale:
export LANG=en_US
