I'd imagine that a single Windows media server serving media for an entire household (including the Linux users in that household) is an extremely common setup.

IPv6 and VLAN, yay!

I have a slackware box that I have configured as an ipv6 router/tunnel endpoint. I've just finished installing a laptop that is an ipv6 network client.
What do you mean by:
- ipv6 support
- integrates nicely?

The client is configured with one sysctl connfiguration file (and including the ipv6 module in the initrd).
The server (Slackware 13.1) has an extra file in rc.d that sets up the routing (it is called from rc.local):
- open an ipv6 in ipv4 tunnel
- set an ipv6 address on my end of the tunnel
- add an ipv6 address on eth0
- start radvd (router advertisement deamon, from SBo) with its own rc.* script

TLDR: I have a laptop client that already has an ipv6 configuration that IMO integrates nicely, and a server/router whose configuration could be adapted to integrate nicer. I don't know if it would cover all scenarios that you want.

Also, the router has a VLAN that terminates on eth0. I got away with configuring that using only rc.netdevice and rc.inet1.conf. I guess the "vlan" branch will do away with the need for changes in rc.netdevice? I don't see my specific setup in the test scenarios, so if you want I can try if my scenario also works... Scenario is static IP on eth0 and static IP on eth0.4 (eth0 is parent of eth0.4).

I've been away from this forum for a long time, so please forgive (and educate) me if I am missing something obvious.

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?
If I remember right we are using pulseaudio and 14.2 and current build the mplayer with pulseaudio. and that would bring in samba client because you need it for many things.
It is actually a server and works with data bases over the internet. I see a huge reason why it should be a must. With or without pulseaudio. Think of Mplayer it does a ton of stuff like rtmpdump. the sambaclient works direct with mariadb. So many cool things you can do with it and the media now.

I know this has been discussed before, but would we be able to change the default output of removepkg to just display the errors of removing files/folders rather than showing every attempt at removing a file and folder? Right now it is extremely difficult to catch any errors while removing a package unless you look over it later or pipe the output to another command. I would love to only see the errors rather than have them mixed in with the rest of the files that were removed as expected. It would make it much easier to clean up any remnants from removed packages.

Right now, you'd have to hope you have a big enough console buffer and scroll up, pipe the output to grep, or save it to a file to comb through it later.

For those who wish to keep the "verbose" output, a -verbose option could remain.

I did a quick patch of -current's removepkg adding this ability. I enabled support for -v, -verbose, or --verbose. See below or attached.

I like this idea. For me it matters not what is default but I do like just a displaying errors option, be it default or as an option. Right now I tee the output of upgradepkg, removepkg and slackpkg (when I remember too at least).

I don't like that solution. A better way is to use this function which will redirect any errors/warnings to stderr which can then be filtered out or redirected by the user.

Code:
die () {
  ret="$1"; shift
  printf %s\\n "$@" >&2
  case "$ret" in
    : ) return 0 ;;
    * ) exit "$ret" ;;
  esac
}
It can then be used like this.

Code:
die 1 "This is an error message"
die 0 "This is an exit message"
die : "This is a warning message"
Instead of this.
Code:
echo "This is an error message"; exit 1

Do I hear a grudging approval of Plasma 5?

I applied a short patch to fix auto-detection of *bz2 tarballs.

When kernel 4.14 lands in main tree eventually, I suggest putting a note in ChangeLog.txt/UPGRADE.TXT/CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT about the fact that "cciss" driver is now removed in favor of "hpsa" (which supports all boards cciss did and is actually a module alias for cciss now). Disks connected to previously-cciss will still be visible, but if one refers to them as /dev/cciss/... (ie. in /etc/fstab) it will no longer work. Also smartctl/smartd needs some tuning, you need to know which scsi generic device your controller is at (lsscsi -g), and then point smartd there:
Code:
$ lsscsi -g
[0:1:0:0]    disk    HP       LOGICAL VOLUME   7.24  /dev/sda   /dev/sg0 
[0:1:0:1]    disk    HP       LOGICAL VOLUME   7.24  /dev/sdb   /dev/sg1 
[0:3:0:0]    storage HP       P400i            7.24  -          /dev/sg2 
$
$ grep sg2 /etc/smartd.conf 
/dev/sg2 -d cciss,0 -I 190 -a -m root
/dev/sg2 -d cciss,1 -I 190 -a -m root
/dev/sg2 -d cciss,2 -I 190 -a -m root
/dev/sg2 -d cciss,3 -I 190 -a -m root
/dev/sg2 -d cciss,4 -I 190 -a -m root
$
This may affect people running Slackware on HP servers.
