the idea is NOT to overwrite any Slackware packages. I know upower 0.99.x has some ABI changes, so probably Pat is going to make sure everything works with latest version before bumping it.

Makes sense. IMO it would not be a bad idea to mention it in the README for those with laptops.

There are no READMEs in most of the scripts for CSB

I meant this:

https://github.com/CinnamonSlackBuil.../master/README

Alternatively, in the NOTES file, or perhaps most appropriately, in KNOWN_ISSUES.

This would be great, or even to the git @ 0.99.9. I do believe that most if not all of the patches that PV has for upower have been applied, but I don't know how well it would play with everything else. I do know that if you upgrade upower to 0.99.9 XFCE looks different and the power manager no longer functions. But a rebuild of XFCE might fix those, I have not tried (yet).

Ok, I figured that might be the case. It's quite likely that things would still be broken after a rebuild of XFCE if they haven't updated their code to account for changes to upower.

Anyway, for those using Cinnamon that need power management working on a laptop, I just took Pat's upower SlackBuild, replaced the source file with the latest 0.99.7 from upstream, commented out all the patches from the SlackBuild, and ran it. Then I rebuilt all of CSB, though I'm sure it's really only a couple packages that need to be rebuilt. The only issue now is that it is reporting a nonsense time remaining on battery, but the battery percentage is displaying correctly and the power management settings dialog works. Caveat: doing this is not supported in any way by anyone.

addresses gone bad: cracklib

cracklib - gone bad - tar file not present.

Code:


$ sudo ./build-cinnamon.sh

tar: /home/userx/csb/cracklib/cracklib-2.9.6.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
when trying to get the address using the terminal output http address, it shows not found, putting it into the search box then finding a relative link to that address I get this address

http://ftp.oregonstate.edu/.2/lfs-we.../cracklib.html

this address tells where to look, it is the same address in the script, but trying to access it returns "not found" from the web, gets same issue (of course).


so it leaves me and others stranded...

....

oh yeah I am building this on current 14.2+

....


OK READ HERE:

I got a git hub addy:

go here and it shows two files, zip and tar.gz right click / copy address link gets me this.

https: // github.com/cracklib/cracklib/archive/cracklib-2.9.6.tar.gz

https://github.com/cracklib/cracklib...cracklib-2.9.6


but I do not know if it has the words tar.gz add -on ; i am typing this as I investigate, the git page I got that one does not show a tar.gz for the second one in the slackbuild for cracklib. search just leads me back to the same github page for the first one. github.com/cracklib/cracklib/releases/tag/cracklib-2.9.6

If I or anyone else was to use that source instead of the one in the craklib.Slackbuild. I do not know if this tar.gz has it all shoved into that one tar or not, if so then how does that effect the build as a whole?

Further investigation is needed.

Just an FYI, I have suspend/hibernate working with ConsoleKit now in cinnamon-session, and I have submitted a pull request upstream. The current released version depends on the old upower to do that if logind is not present. I am trying to get it working in cinnamon-settings-daemon too.

It's not really an issue for CSB at the moment, since Slackware is still using the old upower, but hopefully my commits will be merged before it becomes an issue.

that was a fresh git clone off master,, let me try again???

EDIT:
strange:
I found another copy of this on my other drive, so I decided to try that one just to see, and it works. then I checked the two cracklib.slackbuilds and the wget are exactly the same so maybe it was just the sight being momentarily screwy.

It is building as I type this..
