I'll be replacing the stock ffmpeg as well.

As a side note to this, according to the changelog, xine-lib will be supporting libavcodec v58 (ffmpeg >= 4.0 ) with the next release, this might be the reason why Slackware-current is still provided with ffmpeg-3.4.x

Yes, good point _gin. While some of us have the luxury of breaking the odd package here or there, Pat doesn't.

Requests for -current (14.2-->15.0)

What's the necessary time to build ffmpeg?
Since last patent related changes, I stick with Pat's default.
As a few buddies of mine for which I installed it, for the ease of administrating their box...

That depends on your hardware. using make -j8, I can do it about 2 minutes.

You're right... I wish it could exist a time by core reference...

What I meant was that iirc last time I did it seemed to me quite long. And it might be long for who runs a low specs computer.

What about python3? Is there a reason to not update it to the 3.7.x branch?

2011
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...nkpads-918929/

and 2016
https://alien.slackbook.org/blog/kde...kware-current/


changing notes to B# ,
I've never seen Slack actually completely work with the iPhone connection for both side of the iPhone, phone side, and app side to access the installed apps on the phone via usb cable.

How about a python3 build of pyxdg for FVWM.

With it the XDG Menu can be generated and applications from other DE's etc can be accessed easily from the FVWM menu.

I have been experimenting with:
  1. Keeping the -current FFmpeg version plus libraries installed
  2. Building the git FFmpeg executables only and installing the 3 to $HOME/bin

This has worked for me so far as I do not necessarily want to link to updated FFmpeg / libav* libraries, I simply want access to the newest versions of FFmpeg, FFplay and FFprobe. Working well so far...

We could benefit of more things that go to local and more things that go to /home/$USER/*

maybe even have some SBo's support of this? (system/per_host/per_user)

I mean i know this was here since forever, but i meant make it endorsed as a slack build policy?

no?

Same here, I keep a copy of https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv-build somewhere and symlink its bundled ffmpeg builds into my ~/bin.

Yep, that's a viable approach if all you're looking for is a better ffmpeg executable rather than updating the system libraries, though I'd go with /opt/ffmpeg-$version rather than putting it in ~/bin/

This is, and I think should stay, up to the admin and/or the user.

Having binaries, scripts or libs in $HOME is a user's choice, for instance using a virtual environment isolated from the system wide environment like e.g. for Python packages.

I don't think that /opt or /usr/local should be used by any package included in the distribution itself. It can be handy is some cases however for big third-party packages.

Also as I understand it about configuration files:
  • base (as provided by upstream) settings go to /usr/share, with possibly a copy in /etc, then editable by the admin.
  • site/admin settings go to /etc (either as provided by upstream or edited/added by the admin).
  • user settings go to $HOME. /etc/skel can be used to provided base settings for all users but I now think that its usage should be very limited for the packages shipped in the distribution, it is more useful in context of an organization if the admin wants that all users have similar settings.
PS: distribution specific settings, either genuine or modified from the upstream default, also generally go in /etc

I'm with Didier, I wouldn't like to see packaged stuff going to /usr/local╣ and $HOME is right out for obvious reasons.

╣ OpenBSD do that, and it bugs me no end.
