Anyway, IMO it doesn't hurt to do nothing successfully at startup, so I doubt it be urgent to edit SeTpartitions in the installer

Perhaps take another look at icewm and jwm.

GDB 8.3.1 + python 3.8.1 we have in -current has a problem cooperating with Emacs' GDB-mode.

The problem comes from the fact that Python linked with GDB prints a warning about wrong usage of "is not" construct,
and emacs' gdb-mode cannot parse it.

The file in question is /usr/share/gdb/python/gdb/command/prompt.py, lines 48 and 60.

Easily fixable, but annoying. Fixed in gdb'd git, apparently. https://sourceware.org/git/gitweb.cg...379309;hb=HEAD

Plasma 5 Desktop Icons

It is somewhat more involved to alter the icon spacing in the Plasma 5 Desktop.

With MS Windows the icon spacing vertically and horizontally are straightforward values to change.

If the Desktop Configuration could include such a facility that becomes a permanent part of the configuration until explicitly reset or altered it would be a very useful facility.

Some of us are very particular about the User Interface and look for high levels of control therein.

Well, first of all: Plasma5 is not part of Slackware-current.
Second, the question you have is about user preference. Slackware is a distro which is agnostic to user preference. What you should do is open an enhancement request at https://bugs.kde.org/ if you need more granularity in your control over desktop icon spacing.

nvi doinst.sh: 'ex' link fails because 'nex' is a link that
is created afterwords.

/var/lib/pkgtools/scripts/nvi-1.81.6-x86_64-1
Code:
# If there's no ex link, take over:
if [ ! -r usr/bin/ex ]; then
  ( cd usr/bin ; ln -sf nex ex )
fi
( cd usr/bin ; rm -rf nex )
( cd usr/bin ; ln -sf nvi nex )
You should be able to link 'ex' directly to 'nvi' (untested).

Works here. It shouldn't matter what order the symlinks are created in.

Yes, of course you are right. I saw your ChangeLog note, but I
didn't know vim would clobber ex, but not vi. I checked my
upgrade logs and the install order was:
elvis
nvi
vim

So, that explains it. Sorry for being an id10t.
