maybe you can add the
Code:
export LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8
BTW. I use the firefox 3.6.4 build 4 that is release on today. the slackware current use the 3.6.3.
In the 3.6.4 the flash is running on a separate process. It is more stable than 3.6.3.
But the 3.6.4 will be released on june 1. bad news.

I'm not on -current but I am running a custom compiled 2.6.33.4 kernel which the same as that in -current. Since I switched to this version the ondemand governor stopped working (I have an Asus eeePC 1005HA). Some Googling suggested that this might be a kernel issue. Are you experiencing a similar problem? If so, 2.6.33 might be a particularly bad choice for laptop/netbook owners. Pat doesn't make any kernel updates (to stable releases) except for security fixes but a backport might be a good idea for this case (I think there is a fix in the 2.6.34-rc tree).

That's excellent news!

I've done the updates, but I've got a question about aaa_elflibs.

It changelogs it says that aaa_elflibs has been upgraded to 13.1.

Is it the only case when I should comment out blacklisting of it in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist?
It says there that it can't be upgraded.

What's the deal with aaa_elflibs then?
I've got everything upgraded apart from elflibs now:
aaa_elflibs-13.0-x86_64-2

Shall I comment it out and run slackpkg again?

thanks

Yes. In Slackware current any update to aaa_elflibs includes all the most up to date libraries, so it should be OK to update it.

Anyway this is what I believe is the case.

If you see /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/ then you'll see that many things changed with 2.6.33.
The rc.modules section on cpufreq handling is outdated. I think its better to use cpufrequtils directly now.

I use a custom kernel and the cpufreq support is built-in, so rc.modules shouldn't make a difference. I already checked that directory and the active governor seems to be ondemand, but the frequency is stuck at maximum when the processor is idle.

Anyway, I discovered another problem related to hda_intel: Sound keeps coming out of the speakers even when a headphone is plugged in. So I'm back to 2.6.32 for now.

Yes TERM=linux set in .bashrc. I removed/added it back but it didn't change anything...still the weird chars.

No, that messes up the terminal even badly.
