I recommend kernel-5.4.x be promoted from /testing and to drop 4.19.x. This kernel privides better support for Ryzen CPUs, AMD X570 chipsets, and NAVI GPUs (open source AMDGPU). I do not yet have and NAVI GPU (mini-itx case), but have tested basic function on Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro Wifi with Ryzen 7 3800X, 480GB SSD Sata6, 16GB DDR4. Of note:

Intel Corporation Wi-Fi 6 AX200 requires kernel >5.1
fan speeds ITE IT8688 - support not present in lm-sensors (yet?)

glade-3.20.4
This is the GTK 3 version of Glade.

The Glade in -current is the GTK 2 version (Glade 3.8.6). It appears to be included for its library (libgladeui-1.0).

As a Ryzen/amdgpu folk, I applaud the migration of the latest Stable kernel from testing to Current! It's been running fine. Thank you!

And, in fact, is out-of-date too: the latest GTK3 version is 3.22.1:
Code:
-r--r--r-- 1 hartman beheer 3592952 2018-04-03 00:09:39 /disk2/Linux/Misc/glade-3.22.1.tar.xz
which is already more than 1.5 years old too.
As you already mentioned: 3.8.6 is the last version that still can use GTK 2

It seems that the Mako python package requires markupsafe at runtime.

on a clean -current install, running pip check returns:

Code:
# pip check
DEPRECATION: Python 2.7 will reach the end of its life on January 1st, 2020. Please upgrade your Python as Python 2.7 won't be maintained after that date. A future version of pip will drop support for Python 2.7. More details about Python 2 support in pip, can be found at https://pip.pypa.io/en/latest/develo...thon-2-support
mako 1.1.0 requires markupsafe, which is not installed.
# pip3 check
mako 1.1.0 requires markupsafe, which is not installed.

markupsafe can always be installed from SBo to for this requirement and its not needed to build mesa which I believe is what Mako in Slackware is mostly used for. I recall that only a few programs at SBo that need Mako also need markupsafe and it does not matter what order they are installed.

Hi, I just updated to the latest 5.4.1 kernel a machine on my FM2+ socket and a A6 processor, seems that there is a problem with video
as the console does not appear, I just can easily log in, on the console and or by ssh so I know the machine is up and running.
But on the screen after the frame buffer changes the screen resolution of the console I end up with a black screen. I will try a
nofb option in my lilo.conf to see if it solves the problem. Any other suggestions ?

32 or 64 bit?

Did you try either?

Vanilla 5.4.1 from -current?
