Didier Spaier, if it matters, I tested this in Porteus based on Slackware-current. In advance I apologize if I was mistaken with a topic.

BTW, system-config-printer must be run as root user or it gives freezes.
Code:
sed -i 's|system-config-printer|gksu system-config-printer|g' /usr/share/applications/system-config-printer.desktop
Cheers

Package, 'system-config-printer' , on a fresh current install, the root auth authentication dialog box is broken, it need this patch (work here):

https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/p...config-printer

already posted, but probably omitted

patch is also available on system-config-printer git now:

https://github.com/zdohnal/system-co...commits/master

To make sure I installed Slakware64-current in a VM and ran this script:
Code:
#/bin/sh/
for LANG in $(locale -a); do
    strip=${LANG%.*}
    mylocale=${strip%@*}
    mycharmap=$(locale -k charmap|sed 's/[^"]*"//;s/"//')
    echo "localedef -f $mycharmap -i $mylocale $LANG"
    localedef -f $mycharmap -i $mylocale $LANG
done
Only 4 locales are missing in /usr/lib64/locale/locale-archive (according to localedef --list-archive) out of 815 reported by locale -a, namely:
et_EE
et_EE.iso885915
et_EE.utf8
hy_AM.armscii8
due to formatting errors in the input files from /usr/share/i18n/locales, no other issues but a few warnings (full log attached), and no other weirdness detected.

So, false alarm as far I can tell.

Maybe the files shipped in the glibc-i18n package can't be used with another glibc version, in other words are not so independent that I thought?

Can I add another request for adding CONFIG_CIFS_SMB2 to the kernel? I see it mentioned but not sure if it made it in yet.

Pretty please?

Eh? Wasn't the GTK 3 port over 90 percent done?

No, as far as I know.
As long as 洪任諭 (Hong Jen Yee, aka PCMan) prefers Qt5 over GTK3 this won't change. Unless Andriy Grytsenko forks it, but I wouldn't bet on that either.

So, if accessibility matters I recommend MATE.

I have a proposal about enhancing the LAMP stack:

Major PHP frameworks like Laravel, CakePHP or Symfony use a fast database named Redis. There are tons of sites made this way.

So, there are already builds for:

https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/system/redis/
https://slackbuilds.org/repository/1...ies/php-redis/

And the generated packages are very small.

BUT, I think that adding Redis and its PHP bindings to Slackware is a great improvement. There is an entire world beyond Drupal, Joomla! and Wordpress.

Only on Laravel is estimated to had be made hundred of thousands of (custom) sites. Same on CakePHP and Symfony is generally used by pros.

Which pros are pros in PHP, not in Slackware and busy people, then giving them Redis, they will not dismiss from start our glorious operating system.

PS. I hope that there are no political issues with libvdpau-va-gl: https://github.com/i-rinat/libvdpau-va-gl

Without it, the MPlayer and Flash Player cannot use hardware decoding for videos in ANY Intel (graphics) system, and on laptops that results in eating fast the batteries.

@Darth Vader

In your first attemp to request libvdpau-va-gl , i think is good , cause in my slackware 14.2 box im not have video acceleration (i7 7500u with enbedded graphics) , but in current YES , video acceleration works great. (not needed i think)

Testing this libvdpau-va-gl in my 14.2 box i see "videos" , are now with "foggy" , and i uninstalled , i prefer in media player preferences set "x11" acceleration.

Thats my experience after test this package , i think now say NO , cause video quality down extremely...as i can say in "current" , video acceleration in my intel works great.

For test this a easy way is , install libvdpau-va-gl , start a video and make frame capture , uninstall ... make frame capture , and open the two images , and see how , with va-gl , the image is "too foggy" , especially in dark scenes.

Thats my little experience testing that package.
