No! I want to understand the code one month later ;-)

Hear hear! UUOC is not U if it makes the script more readable.

Could the mozilla-{firefox,thunderbird}.SlackBuild be actually changed to use:

echo "ac_add_options --enable-optimize=\"${OPTIMIZE}\"" >> .mozconfig
instead of:

in the OPTIONS?

--enable-optimize=$OPTIMIZE does not seem to like when multiple flags are specified.
Even when adding parenthesis like this: --enable-optimize=\"$OPTIMIZE\"

Best regards,

If that, then why not

  echo "" > /etc/HOSTNAME
  /bin/hostname $(/bin/cat /etc/HOSTNAME)

Since you proposing Fully Qualified Domain Names and /bin/hostname is a full path. Let's be consistent here. :)

EDIT: Or perhaps better ...

  echo "" > /etc/HOSTNAME
  /bin/hostname --file /etc/HOSTNAME

...and some error checking.

Here you go,

Three are marked, "Critical," two are marked, "High," and one is labeled, "moderate."

I installed Slackware-current 64-bit to a netbook with an eMMC-drive last week. There were two issues concerning the eMMC-drive:

(1) The installer recognized that I was installing to a UEFI-system, however: the installer offered to configure a boot partition on the /dev/sda drive, which was the installation media. The installation was done onto the eMMC-drive which was located on /dev/mmcblk0, and I had to configure the EFI-boot partition by hand therefore.
(2) I generated a mkinitrd-command using the script. However, I had to add the following module to the generated mkinitrd-command, which was not automatically included: "mmc_block". Otherwise the created initrd was unable to read my eMMC-drive.

It would be great if the installer/mkinitrd-command could automatically infer these options. I see in the changelogs that the kernel has been upgraded since, so perhaps these points are no longer relevant.

Other than this, the system is running very well :)

Sorry for delay reply, Didier.

There is also a Russian tanslation but it needs to be updated:

Ok. I'll see how I can help. :-)

1. This is "fork" is not "fork" of Slackware Linux. :-D :-D :-D

1.1 RTK GNU/Linux uses its source tree. This is 100%. :-)

1.2 RTK GNU/Linux from Slackware Linux is uses only package management system and style, "spirit" Slackware. :-)

1.3 Some rc-scripts work differently. :-)

2. RTK GNU/Linux maybe not work under virtual emulators. :-\

3. This is an old project that contains certain non-closed errors. :-\

3.1 In to S.C.R. (this another my "homemade" project) used Slackware Linux Current source tree (stopped on 14.1, since began to have discrepancies in source tree.).

4. Do not mind it. I cited this as an example, which may result of the maintainer of your favorite distribution don't to include something in the distribution. :-D :-D :-D

5... I'm reborn RTK GNU/Linux. Really. If this has any interest for you, then we can discuss it in a separate topic. :-)

Return to theme:

IMHO. Good idea for include in to Slackware Linux - volumeicon. :thumbsup:

1. This is worked on all xdg-specs-compilant Window Managers.

2. This is for Slackware users who use only ALSA. :thumbsup: A native Linux sound-system for working with sound. :-) :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

3. May be used with any ALSA-mixers (I'm use alsamixer) such as aumix. ;-)
