What your webpage says is that users must:

1. Install slackware64-current full install.
2. Download the packages for dropline GNOME 3.36 from here.
3. Install all those packages you downloaded.
4. Download the packages for dropline GNOME 3.38 from here.
5. Upgradepkg the 3.36 packages you installed and pay special attention to the libhandy0 package as it was renamed from libhandy to libhandy0 since it is installable in parallel.
So I think you need either to add an elogind package to your packages repository (the best approach), or to tell users to make a package up themselves, possibly by providing a Slackbuild.

In the previous post for dlg 3.36 is written that the elogind packages are required for installing 3.36 and that they are in the unsupported dir in the repo. I am not sure if I make that clear enough.

Since this is all testing stuff the instruction can be in some way not complete, as I suppose that people who mess with that things are able to get it up.

Also in the 3.38 post is written to install firstly 3.36 and then do the upgrade with the packages from the 3.38 repo. But Willy here said that he will try to go with the compile-order , so since elogind is not in the compile-order probably he has missed it.

I have not put the elogind and other stuff in the compile-order because I in some way expect it to be added into current.

Actually looking at the compile-order I see it in but its commented out.

All that will be polished and cleaned up before the final release in any case.

No, i followed your instructions on the web page.
I installed all 3.36 packages and use upgradepkg --install-new --reinstall on 3.38 to make sure i install all new packages in 3.38 and upgrade the rest

Ok, if you followed the instructions, then you should end up with the elogind installed. It is in the unsupported directory.
I put it in that directory because it is not a build with DBS.
Anyway, as said this is all testing stuff, and if you have an idea of how to make things more clear let me know. I can write a
README file or anything to make that clear.

I just understood you that you will not install according to the web page instructions and go the compile order way one by one.

Anyway, I hope you got it running and that all works as expected.

Please be aware that the is quite some programs broken up to now, as there was a glib2 upgrade in the middle and still we need to
get some other stuff like at-spi2-* , pygobject, dconf, gobject-introspection and some other packages into slackware current.

I also do not want to release anything until we have a stable slackware base. It would just be asking for such kind of troubles.

Ohh i didn't notice the unofficial directory
that's why it failed on my setup. Perhaps make a note on that in the web page

Perfect Willy, many thanks. I am glad to hear all works for you. If you want to correct my writing on how to install it please do so, so I can put the correct instructions to the web site.

Ok, I thought that this post here http://www.droplinegnome.org/#dropli...6-in-the-works
made it clear enough, but maybe I have to be more specific.

Probably the best way is to release an installer.

What the 3.38 webpage actually says is "... 2. Download the packages for dropline GNOME 3.36 from here. 3. Install all those packages you downloaded. ..."

I think all you need to do to resolve this is to change the text to "... 2. Download the packages for dropline GNOME 3.36 from here, including the packages in the 'unofficial' directory. 3. Install all those packages you downloaded. ..."

In the video I made, I've removed ConsoleKit2. Is that really necessary? If yes, I will update my script?
