ehm, there's no exim in Slackware (it recently switched from sendmail to postfix)...

it is available on SBo actually, so you may want to notify its maintainer, if you like...

Also, you may be use different partition for /boot and for /. This is simple and NOT way of warriors of Light.

These guys talks about full disk encryption, not about the root filesystem encryption.

On a full disk encryption everything is encrypted, from the byte ZERO to MAX. Even the MBR is unreadable by BIOS.

And I think in Slackware is a must to use an initrd, if you chose to use encrytion, have no importance if it is partial or complete.

I would honestly like to request seeing some suckless tools in slackware because they appeal to the slackware principle of minimalist and lack of complexity. They would be an excellent addition to the distro and would require no additional dependencies for slackware
---------------
dwm. dwm is a dynamic window manager for X. It manages windows in tiled, monocle and floating layouts. All of the layouts can be applied dynamically, optimising the environment for the application in use and the task performed.
https://dwm.suckless.org/
https://dl.suckless.org/dwm/dwm-6.1.tar.gz

st. st is a simple terminal implementation for X.
https://st.suckless.org/
https://dl.suckless.org/st/st-0.8.1.tar.gz

dmenu. dmenu is a dynamic menu for X, originally designed for dwm. It manages large numbers of user-defined menu items efficiently.
https://tools.suckless.org/dmenu/
https://dl.suckless.org/tools/dmenu-4.8.tar.gz

slock. Simple X display locker.
https://tools.suckless.org/slock/
https://dl.suckless.org/tools/slock-1.4.tar.gz

tabbed. Simple generic tabbed fronted to xembed aware applications, originally designed for surf but also usable with many other applications, i.e. st, uzbl, urxvt and xterm
https://tools.suckless.org/tabbed/
https://dl.suckless.org/tools/tabbed-0.6.tar.gz

Suckless is wonderful. Very simple and tiny written programs but at the same time are very powerful. Like dmenu for example can be a very simple replacement for a program if you want open an installed user program and it integrates very well into any windows manager or DE like XFCE not just dwm

Don't touch, this is musical "release announcement" (Richard Wagner - Ride of the Valkyries (by Chris Goulstone on electric guitar, 1996 year))

Last edited by Ne01eX; 04-16-2018 at 03:50 PM. Reason: Replace musical "release announcement" (very better, IMHO).

Yeah but the whole point of suckless tools is that you're supposed to modify them to your needs before compiling them. I'm not sure how useful it would be to package uncustomized builds.

May I request numlockx?
https://github.com/rg3/numlockx

It is a simple yet effective tool to handle the numlock state for those who don't use DEs which already do this themselves.

According to the SlackBuild at http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14...earch=numlockx no dependencies are required, and I can confirm it compiles properly (on slackware64-current).

All the other distros that package suckless software like st or dwm package them unmodified be it arch linux, gentoo, debian, ubuntu, etc. dwm for example is still very useful even if you run it completely vanilla.

No, I'm suggesting it's good enough to be included as a default software

2Pat:

Into current time, Slackware provide, as minimum, 3 unclosed vulnerables. 2of3 this is: CVE-2017-6362, CVE-2017-7890.

To close this, update l/gd (libgd) library to 2.2.5:

https://github.com/libgd/libgd/relea...d-2.2.5.tar.xz

3of3 I'm still looking. Maybe, this false alarm.

Cool

Also, good idea to include into mainline: libglademm.
