The only thing to be careful about with terminfo entries is how programs like vim react to them. Delete, home and end keys can have some wonky behavior unless you're careful to account for them.

Maybe just including the .info files and having people tic them if they need to might be the way to go. That's the way dvtm and st do it, and it seems to be ok.

I'm a dvtm guy, so take that opinion for what you think it's worth.

solution for hplip?

kjhambrick may have found the solution to the ppd installation problems with hplip. Message #10 in the thread I started has a SlackBuild that seems to solve the problems that I and others have had in using it to install the print cue. Rebuilding hplip with it and using the gui worked for him and me. Maybe you could take a look at it?

For hplip it seem this option '--with-hpppddir=/usr/share/ppd/HP' isn't needed, because this is the install dir option by default

Good eye gmgf !

Below is the output from /tmp/hplip-3.16.5/configure --help

Appended because there might be more config varbs to tweak for Current ...

Thanks !

-- kjh

# /tmp/hplip-3.16.5/configure --help

Code:
`configure' configures HP Linux Imaging and Printing 3.16.5 to adapt to many kinds of systems.                                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
Usage: /tmp/hplip-3.16.5/configure [OPTION]... [VAR=VALUE]...                                                                                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
To assign environment variables (e.g., CC, CFLAGS...), specify them as                                                                                                                                             
VAR=VALUE.  See below for descriptions of some of the useful variables.

  -n, --no-create         do not create output files
      --srcdir=DIR        find the sources in DIR [configure dir or `..']

Installation directories:
  --prefix=PREFIX         install architecture-independent files in PREFIX
                          [/usr/local]
  --exec-prefix=EPREFIX   install architecture-dependent files in EPREFIX
                          [PREFIX]

By default, `make install' will install all the files in
`/usr/local/bin', `/usr/local/lib' etc.  You can specify
an installation prefix other than `/usr/local' using `--prefix',
for instance `--prefix=$HOME'.

For better control, use the options below.

              nonstandard directory <lib dir>
  LIBS        libraries to pass to the linker, e.g. -l<library>
  CPPFLAGS    (Objective) C/C++ preprocessor flags, e.g. -I<include dir> if
              you have headers in a nonstandard directory <include dir>
  CC          C compiler command
  CFLAGS      C compiler flags
  CPP         C preprocessor
  CXXCPP      C++ preprocessor
  PYTHON      Python interpreter/compiler command
  PYTHONINCLUDEDIR
              path to Python.h C header file
  PKG_CONFIG  path to pkg-config utility
  PKG_CONFIG_PATH
              directories to add to pkg-config's search path
  PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR
              path overriding pkg-config's built-in search path
  DBUS_CFLAGS C compiler flags for DBUS, overriding pkg-config
  DBUS_LIBS   linker flags for DBUS, overriding pkg-config

Use these variables to override the choices made by `configure' or to help
it to find libraries and programs with nonstandard names/locations.

Report bugs to <3.16.5>.

Sorry I didn't post sooner, this just came up in my lab.... Anyway, I don't see any blockers, pam isn't required and it builds fine as kind on my system. The old netatalk uses apple protocols that were deprecated a while a go, so the existing package is mostly useless unless you have really old gear.

Like I said, I can whip up some rc.d scripts and polish up a package if you want. It's pretty low risk as nothing else builds against netatalk. The only thing needed is something in the notes that informs users that the config file changed.

I poked around in the files for the package a bit, and found the (wrong for us) path was hardcoded into /usr/share/hplip/installer/distros.dat. I wonder if that's the real cause of the issues?

But if /usr/share/ppd/HP is the default path these days (and fixes the issue), we'll use it rather than try to swim against the current.

Pat --

I didn't delve into the source code but I've been known to do the very same thing -- hardcode a value to 'get things working' always meaning to come back and fix it later.

Later often never comes

I did find this site:

http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web...slackware.html

Step 4 is where I found the hpppddir config setting.

Thank you !

-- kjh

p.s. I looked at the /usr/share/hplip/installer/distros.dat file and I see what you mean by hard-coded paths in the .dat file.

Not to mention that the most recent version is Slackware 12.1 -- circa 2008 or so ?

Pat, i try to rebuild cdrtools with this patch

https://sourceforge.net/projects/cdr...patch/download

because k3b doesn't work correctly here,

and cdrtools doesn't compil with the current source with and without the patch

Like I said, I can whip up some rc.d scripts and polish up a package if you want. It's pretty low risk as nothing else builds against netatalk. The only thing needed is something in the notes that informs users that the config file changed.
Pro tip: Go ahead and do it. Post the results here. Completed work, even if not ideal, is more valuable than work proposals :-)
This is of course not a promise or even an indication that the changes will make it in this time, but having a working-for-at-least-you build is a good place for us to start, either now or for the next cycle.

32-bit UEFI support?

Was recently handed a couple of machines to recondition that require 32-bit UEFI to boot, with no legacy mode available. Did manage to get a working boot setup, but would be nice to have fewer steps to go through if I run across similar again.

TIA for any answer!

The 32-bit Slackware 14.2 will not support UEFI, and there aren't really any plans to support 32-bit UEFI in the future.

Alpine 2.20 is built with configure options to turn off debugging:
Code:
  --disable-debug \
  --with-debug-level=0 \
I recently needed to debug and had to rebuild alpine without the --disable-debug option.

Can the "--disable-debug" option be removed?
Code:
  --with-debug-level=0 \
I find that the "--with-debug-level=0" option alone is enough to stop creation of the .pine-debug1 files.

If I manually set the debug level with the -d option then .pine-debug1 files are created.
But If I do not set the debug level then it defaults to 0 and no .pine-debug1 files are made.
