CMake 3.15.4
https://github.com/Kitware/CMake/rel...-3.15.4.tar.gz
https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.15/r.../3.15.html#id4
Quote:
In CMake 3.15.0 through 3.15.3, the EXCLUDE_FROM_ALL directory property was regressed from pre-3.14 behavior and caused targets within the directory to be excluded even from its own “all”. This has been fixed. The bug also existed in 3.14.0 through 3.14.6 and is fixed in 3.14.7.

Question Is gamin used for something special?

Good day,

I removed gamin (See my post https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...8/#post6043030) and recompiled samba and glib2, it seems the system is working well, however I would like to know if there is a known use for this package that I will be missing? Or why is still included in Slackware?

Thanks.

Gamin uses the inotify kernel feature to report filesystem changes to other libraries or applications. If you recompile packages to not use gamin, the system will still mostly work, but (for example), you'd need to refresh Thunar to see if something changed in the directory that you're looking at. With gamin, any changes will be reflected in the display immediately.

Packages that link gamin: glib2, kdelibs, samba, strigi.

For what it's worth gamin has not given me any problems.

+1 for PAM and kerberos/heimdal
They make it smoother to operate in a corporate environment.

I am for jq
https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/system/jq/

It is really small, yet very useful. JSON is popular, and with jq you can use it for shell programming.

Code:
$ curl -s  http://worldclockapi.com/api/json/est/now | jq ".currentDateTime"

Lightbulb Just my humble opinion

Slackware current feels ready for release!

Kernel (4.19)

* Linux 4.19 feels stable enough, and at the same time, new enough to support recent hardware and software.
* It is the current LTS release, may become extended LTS in future.
* Debian 10 released recently also uses this kernel.

KDE Plasma 5

* Plasma 5 feels solid enough at this point, in case Pat wants to include it.
* If Plasma 5 is too heavy, Qt5 and a light weight Qt environment like LxQt could be added.
* Many people appreciate the KDE apps. Some of them can be installed using appimages.
* KDE4 and Qt4 can be removed.

PAM

* Dont know what the current status is, but if its not ready can be deferred for the next release.
* There are enough changes to justify releasing current as Slackware 15.
https://mirrors.slackware.com/slackw.../ChangeLog.txt

My 2 cents. Some of the ideas taken from people in the thread.

How about a new LTS Kernel 5.4.x (must to out at end of November or beginning of December)?
Look at this table https://www.kernel.org/category/releases.html

Probably will be ready in December 2019 or in the beginning of 2020 year...

My 2 cents.
