Simply compare the output of:

Code:
ldd /usr/bin/emacs-27.2-no-x11
ldd /usr/bin/emacs-27.2-with-x11
It's too long to post here. emacs-27.2-with-x11 needs a lot more libraries than emacs-27.2-no-x11 and if any of those is not installed (because you have a headless server which does not need them) it is not possible to execute that binary and the command line switch can not change that. You will always get an error like

Code:
emacs-27.2-with-x11: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-3.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I have no opinion on Gajim itself, except that it is _neither_ lightweight, _nor_ snappy. It is a very heavy and slow piece of python. Its support for xmpp is better than that of Pidgin 2, and I haven't tried Pidgin 3.

Hi,

how about making /etc/cups and below be root:lp in {cups,cups-filters}.SlackBuild?

When cups is starting, it's changing the user:group from root:root to root:lp (now for everything though), but package upgrades revert it to root:root.

And that upsets my git status for /etc. ;->

Best regards,
Andrzej Telszewski

I wonder about wxWidgets. Will it ever happen to be in Slackware?

Pat,

Perhaps some mention in the upgrade hints about /etc/mtab would be helpful. In a fresh install /etc/mtab will be a sym link to /proc/mounts. In a 14.2 system updated to 15.0 /etc/mtab will be a file. Thankfully the 15.0 rc.S does not overwrite the user's preference. A note in the docs might help forewarn users about the differences.

As there seems to be no douninst.sh script in /var/lib/pkgtools/douninst.sh/ yet from a system package,
would the following be correct? Or isn't that feature meant this way?
/var/lib/pkgtools/douninst.sh/texlive
Code:
#!/bin/sh

# Remove remainder which was created by doinst.sh

rm -rf usr/share/texmf-{config,dist,local,var}

Interesting, I find it snappy and this is only an i3, so no "super computer", it's only using 1.3% of memory and no cpu, but YMMV

and yes, python is not the most resource friendly, its funny when you can say perl is fast compared to it.

I agree with you, odd that the link is not working.

But link to announcement is working on the mirror sites (for download)
