I know that this is the -current thread, but I just wanted to say thanks to volkerdi for the llvm upgrade in 14.2!

It would be very nice if SDL_mixer was compiled with --enable-music-mp3-mad-gpl in official package. Lack of that flag means you just don't get built-in MP3 playback through SDL_mixer at all.

Many people are switching to Amazon Corretto as an alternative to OpenJDK or Oracle. It might now be worth considering as the de facto JDK for Slackware.

Although there currently is NO other Linux version of it available other then for Amazon Linux itself.
They will go on to support RHEL and Ubuntu after the test phase, but nothing is said about Slackware (that is: a non-systemd distribution!).

Pat just updated SDL2_mixer for this.

For SDL1's equivalent: I thought that's what smpeg was for?

Does OpenJDK support Slackware? Does Oracle JDK support Slackware? Why do I care about systemd? It's a drop-in replacement for the Oracle JDK, and is working just fine for me (on Slackware), but then I wouldn't really expect it not to.

I would rather not see an official JDK, much less one from Amazon.

There isn't really anything official when it comes to this. There's just what you use, in any given situation. So, in the past, if I was doing something work related I'd always install the Oracle JDK, because I'd consider it to give me the best chances of my development work going smoothly. If I wanted something without the Oracle name/license, because I want to redistribute it in some particular way, perhaps I'd choose OpenJDK.

Times have changed. OpenJDK was in the past inferior to the Oracle one. I'm unsure to what extent that situation persists today but the fact that Amazon are getting behind a version of OpenJDK suggests it might be a good candidate for serious development work, and hence belong in the extra folder. The source is available on github (https://github.com/corretto/corretto-8).

If you simply don't trust the source because it's Amazon then fair enough I guess.

initrd generation for generic kernel

I've been using this line to generate initrd during kernel installs:

cd /boot/ ; /usr/share/mkinitrd/mkinitrd_command_generator.sh -k `/bin/ls -l vmlinuz-generic | sed 's/.*vmlinuz-generic-\(.*\)/\1/'` | bash

I run it right after slackpkg prompts me to run lilo, but before I hit Yes. I was thinking it would be mighty nice to add something of this nature into slackpkg itself, perhaps as another option, just before asking to install lilo, so that generic kernel users can Y Y through the whole process.

In -current, "geninitrd" will accomplish the same thing.
