I'd like to see the ttf-indic-fonts removed. There's a long-standing incompatibility between them and winetricks.

Surely there are other fonts that support those languages now?

Indeed. Noto fonts intend to support all scripts encoded by Unicode.

OT and as an aside: I just hope that Behdad Esfahbod we be allowed to continue working in the USA. Else this will be a loss not only for this project but also for fontconfig, fribidi, harfbuzz and pango among others.

xorriso

In the ChangeLog for Current:
Code:
Fri Sep 15 17:31:57 UTC 2017
...
ap/xorriso-1.4.8-i586-1.txz:  Added.
Happy to see xorriso eventually shipped in Slackware. And now shipped in just one source package instead of three, which makes maintenance easier.

Thanks Pat, and also thanks to Thomas Schmitt aka scdbackup aka the Booting Guru, who not only does a tremendous job but is also very helpful with users.

I'd rather have Python 3 alongside Python 2 in Slackware-current
(already requested, I know).

Hi,

I noticed that my system (14.2) would very often hang for a couple of seconds when reading or writing RTC, when booting or shutting down.

It turned out that, if I set RTC wakeup alarm, then that causes hangs on /sbin/hwclock.

I modified rc.S and rc.6 as workaround.
I don't know if it can be helpful to broader audience.

Anyways, here comes the code (bold is mine, the same code for both rc.S and rc.6):
Code:
# hwclock will often hang for a few seconds when reading or writing
# the RTC while wakealarm <> 0. Clear wakealarm temporarily.
if [ -w /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm ]; then
  WAKEALARM=$(cat /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm)
  if [ -n "$WAKEALARM" ]; then
    echo "Clearing wakealarm:  echo 0 > /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm"
    echo 0 > /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm
  fi
fi

[..]
if [ -x /sbin/hwclock ]; then
  [..]
fi

# Restore wakealarm.
if [ -w /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm ]; then
  if [ -n "$WAKEALARM" ]; then
    echo "Restoring wakealarm:  echo $WAKEALARM > /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm"
    echo $WAKEALARM > /sys/class/rtc/rtc0/wakealarm
  fi
  unset WAKEALARM
fi

Best regards,
Andrzej Telszewski

Compatibility with Glibc 2.26 was improved by adding proper checking for the
locale based strtod/strtof functions.

New bluez package:

/etc/bluetooth/proximity.conf is empty, it's due to the SlackBuild

cat: profiles/proximity/proximity.conf: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
