The updated patch has been sent to the polkit mailing list but it was never picked up, so I contacted David Zeuthen (polkit maintainer) to get him to review the patch and assimilate it into the polkit-1 source tree.

That patch works. I am running KDE 4.4.2 (unreleased as of yet) with polkit-1 and ConsoleKit and I have an un-crippled KDE now, while the rest of Slackware does not care whether polkit-1 is installed or not (only KDE uses it for now).

I am not sure yet if I will release my polkit-depending version of KDE 4.4.2.

Patience and persistence are definitely useful to a Slacker ...

I must be one of the few Slackers who likes updates and improvements but feels uncomfortable with the possibility of headaches and heartaches... !

Why the rush? Wait. If 13 is working fine and securely, why change it?

How come there was a beta version of KDevelop packaged with Slackware 13.0? I thought they stuck with old versions until the next version was completely ready. I don't really know anything about making a distro so I don't mean to offend anybody. I'm sure there's lots decision making and behind the scenes problems I don't know anything about.

There are two things to take into account here:

1) The Plan and 2) The Schedule.

Slackware is famously released 'when it's ready'. That's fine by me and I really prefer having a solid release rather that one that's been forced out by a fixed date.

However what about the plan?

What is the plan for Slackware 13.xx? What will be included or removed regardless of when it happens? Why does it have to be such a secret?

Maybe there is no plan. That would be remarkable though for such a great distribution.

Hey KDevelop 4.0 is out. I am greenlighting the release of Slackware 13.x. Just in case anybody was waiting for my approval.

I don't ! Slackware64 still have static build problems (*). For me it is not ready.
But I'd be more than happy to have -current updates, moreover if it fixes that problem.

Cheers

Isn't it time that there was a "Slackware Release Schedule" sticky and then an immediate deletion policy for all "When is the next Slackware release" threads?
