11.0 Missing XFCE4


I noticed that XFCE4 is missing from the XAP directory. What gives? I wont use KDE and wont use Gnome.

That's strange. It's in mine. I installed 11.0 and Xfce last night, in fact. It's also listed in /xap in the Slackware Package Browser:

http://packages.slackware.it/browse..../slackware/xap

Maybe it's an issue with your ISO?

Yes iso's from a lot of the mirrors have either a very incomplete directory or missing packages completely for XAP.

For clarity's sake:

The XAP package series is split across disk 1 and 2. Disk 2 has gaim, gimp, gimp-help and seamonkey, while the rest is on disk 1 - including xfce:
Code:
# ls /mnt/iso1/slackware/xap/xfce-4.2.3.2-i486-1.t*
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 15029598 2006-02-04 00:54 /mnt/iso1/slackware/xap/xfce-4.2.3.2-i486-1.tgz
-rw-r--r--  1 root root      189 2006-02-04 00:54 /mnt/iso1/slackware/xap/xfce-4.2.3.2-i486-1.tgz.asc
-rw-r--r--  1 root root      309 2006-02-04 00:54 /mnt/iso1/slackware/xap/xfce-4.2.3.2-i486-1.txt
This page has an overview of how the CD's are populated: http://www.slackware.com/getslack/torrents.php
