It will be nice to have atd and crond started by rc scripts. For example cronie doesn't like the -l option passed to crond.

Starting samba and openldap should be done in rc.inet2, just after rc.yp. rc.openldap placeholder could be used by nslcd. Both nslcd and winbindd should be run as early as possible to provide NSS info. For example if the active directory group "administrator" is used as cups admin group. In rc.M cups is started before samba and it fails because of non-existent group "administrator".

Also it will be nice to replace genpowerd by NUT.


Cheers

lilo (legacy) nvme support
 
2 Attachment(s)
It would be nice to have nvme support for lilo in slackware. I notice didier has contributed patches for elilo etc, so attached are two patches which patch lilo and liloconfig to allow it to work with nvme drives, for those that like booting in legacy mode, or who dislike uefi :-)
It would be nice to see them in a new version of slackware.

Code:

patch -p1 < $CWD/mylilo.patch.txt
needs to be added to the lilo.Slackbuild just after the other patch.
Code:

patch $CWD/liloconfig $CWD/myliloconfig.patch.txt
can be added at the same place, or applied before the buildscript is run.
i've done some basic testing on real hardware, and on qemu 2.11.1 virtual hardware, where with a single nvme drive and sata cdrw it "just works". for more details,see https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...12#post5824212

Hi , this is only a sugestion , cause in extra recordmydesktop are unmantained and not too versatile , i think better is switch to "ssr"

simple screen recorder , are more flexible , works with pulse , can record audio from browser etc , options to choose format video/audio.
when i say works with pulse, i refer , can choose "device" from pulse options in ssr gui ... can record internal audio + microphone at same time etc.

There is the slackbuild
https://slackbuilds.org/repository/1...sr/?search=ssr

Home project

Github

Probably a good other adition are "jack-audio-conection-kit"

Maybe it would be useful to add haveged to Slackware? I know anyone could just install it from SBo, but apparently it could be useful for some people during install when setting up LVM on LUKS for example. See these alpine install directions that incorporate haveged.

https://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/LVM_on_LUKS

For reference the SBo build is here.

I'm using it, but I'm not entirely happy.
From the observed behaviour, it looks there might be some bugs (e.g. related to disabling TPM).
But I would have to take a look at the source code to see what the deal is there.

I vouch for this, ssr is fantastic and i don't think i've had any issues with it since finding it at slackbuilds, whilst recordmydesktop seems to have alot of quirks with sound since the addition of pulseaudio, along with the framerate of recorded videos tending to have unpredictable spikes/lags.

Hello

[I'm in the middle of reconfiguring my web stack and amongst many other things I was looking for chacha20_poly1305 support in OpenSSL and saw that it needs a patch. Unless someone else is requesting it, I won't bother you with it, besides that wasn't the main point of my post here today.]

I have just realized that Slackware's httpd doesn't provide mod_http2. Is there a specific reason for this ? Apparently it only needs nghttp2 ( https://slackbuilds.org/repository/1...twork/nghttp2/ ) and a rebuild with these options : --enable-http2 --enable-proxy-http2

Does anyone have experience with http2 with Slackware's httpd ?

Been using it for quite a while. Works like a champ. Plain and simple, nghttpd2 configured with --enable-lib-only is all you need for Apache's HTTP2 module.

Per https://github.com/openssl/openssl/issues/304 chacha20_poly1305 support will be in OpenSSL 1.1.0, but slackware-current still uses 1.0.2n (which does not have it).

I, too, would like to see Slackware ship OpenSSL with chacha20_poly1305 supported, but have no preference for patching vs waiting for 1.1.0.

Chacha20_poly1305 is already supported in OpenSSH in Slackware 14.1 and 14.2, which makes me pretty happy. Having it in OpenSSL as well would add utility, as it is a more general purpose tool/library (can be used for encrypting local files, https connections, et al). Been making do in the meantime with AES192 and AES256.

svgalib works, it's legacy, not obsolete. it works as it should. but not with fb (framebuffer driver for the vtys) drivers. forcing the vga driver in /etc/vga/libvga.config and disabling all drivers (nvidia, nouveau, i915, amd, etc) will make it work. don't even think about starting x unless using the vesa driver (if that even work anymore, it used to, in 13.37 at least)

seejpeg works fine here..

sbopkg would be nice. lots of slackers use it for those extras that don't come with slackware.

dugan 03-02-2018 01:08 PM

I see that man.conf sets PAGER to "less -is".

Is there any reason to not set it to "most", which would give you colors by default?

("That's how it's set upstream" is a perfectly good reason).

Didier Spaier 03-02-2018 02:06 PM

That's how it's done here (in /etc/skel):
Code:

didier[~]$ cat .profile
export PAGER=/usr/bin/most
export GROFF_ENCODING=UTF-8

But yes, could be in /etc/profile.d/<some executable script> as well, maybe that'd be better.

PS On second thought I fired up a Slackware64-current in a VM and didn't find a man.conf file where PAGER would be set. What do I miss?

The gvfs-package includes a command to remove '*.la' files from /usr/lib, but there are no *.la files. There are two subdirs that include *.la files. Should those be removed instead or is this command obsolete?

It's generally best not to remove the .la files that aren't in a library path. They might be used to load modules with lt_dlopen() and aren't likely to infect other .la files anyway.

Not so much obsolete, more like preventative medicine.

Hi , arround suggestion of switch recordmydesktop to ssr , if no plans to do that , at least patch recordmydesktop , for syncing bitrate , archlinux have the two patches.

https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/c...ecordmydesktop
https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/c...ecordmydesktop

This problem is knowed and old , please patch or switch to other record screen app.
