And what makes you think that Pat is going to add Plasma 5 and then immediately release Slackware 15.0? Ever heard of public betas? We have not seen any yet.
About the "limited testing" of Plasma 5 - I have been providing monthly updates to a Slackware Plasma 5 desktop for more than THREE years now, starting when the latest stable Slackware release was still 14.1. There has been a lot of feedback on those packages used by many, so I would not call it "limited testing".

As someone who replaces rc.inet1 with their own version it would be convenient for me to see rc.inet1 given the '.local' treatment just like rc.4 recently got, but I don't know whether it would be of benefit to anyone else so I'll stop short of asking for it outright and just throw the idea out there for contemplation.

Well it's as simple as:
Code:

... so I hope Patrick picks this up. I think it is a good addition.

I guess "Improve" means something different here.
I'd like a good answer to why anyone should have to patch a build system to support installing libraries to /usr/lib64 on x86_64 systems in 2017, especially when the project in question *just* switched to that build system because it's an "improvement" somehow. Not fussing at you, of course, but geez.
Yes, I filed an issue upstream: https://github.com/nih-at/libzip/issues/19

Yes I saw that, Robby,

because -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX} not work correctly here.

I was always wondering about this: why is MPlayer binary dynamically linked with libsmbclient.so? Do we really need this dependency? How common is it to play media from SMB shares over the network?

I don't know if other people consider it a problem. But for me it's inconvenient, because I don't need Samba at all, so I uninstall the package (or don't install it in the first place). But then it's necessary to recompile MPlayer, because it fails to start.

Could this dependency be avoided in MPlayer package shipped with the next Slackware release?

Believe or not, it is usual for those that have a Linux box at home, to have at least other one running Windows. Hence, the SAMBA is useful for MPlayer.

Just because you personally do NOT use the SAMBA, that does not make it "obsolete".

for that. To intentionally broke even those small bits of compatibility with a Windows local network is a freaking bad idea.

That's not breaking too much, if you have samba you could still mount a Windows share and use mplayer with that. But there are other ways to do it, one would be to split samba into samba and samba-libs.

I wish mplayer did dlopen() for streams too, like it can do for AV plugins (if compiled with --enable-dynamic-plugins)

Just rebuild it yourself, that is what I do with MPlayer since I do not need all the enabled features.
