I want to say at the obvious sign of now being impatient, what exactly is the hold up? OK maybe PAM(?) while it is now merged into the tree, perhaps it is still not up to snuff config-wise for KDE5 and XFCE 4.14? *shrug*

Yes, smart people. They have found that systemd itself is not needed and things that were absorbed into or developed with systemd can be excised and provided as standalone libraries/programs. This allows distros to have the option to not completely switch to systemd while still allowing them to keep up with the development of Linux.

If Pat eventually feels that a systemd migration is needed, then I'll deal with it. I prefer Slackware's current init system and it doesn't seem like a migration to it will be needed anytime soon, but it won't be a deal breaker to me if it ultimately needs to be changed.

As you continue to complain on multiple threads about things being broken using a binary package not designed for -current, and certainly not designed for ktown on -current? Foot, meet mouth.

As itself, the proprietary Skype software made by Microsoft is quite fine and sound, thank you!

And looks like it even works quite well with the current KTown and slackware-current, and even on a Wayland desktop. Again, thank you!

What's your problem, Sir?

You want another flamewar about systemd? Gladly, looks like the overwhelming majority is already fed up about this (anti-)systemd...

There's been no flamewar in this thread. Discussions have been fine. However, there have been several in threads that have been pushed with your complaints...

I suggest that bassmadrigal and LuckyCyborg continue their discussion with e-mails or private messages. Let's get back to discussing what's new and great about Slackware64-current.

The package-tracking automation at distrowatch seems very confused by -current's recent shuffling of python packages. It seems to think Slackware no longer supports any python whatsoever:

Actually that link shows Python 3.8.3 which is correct. 2.7 is also included, but that's sort of a side-thought as it's mostly for backwards compatibility requirements.

Yaay, they fixed it!

It had been showing "--", and is now showing "3.8.3" :-)
