As Didier stated, this thread isn't the right place for these requests, but most are unlikely to happen, which I'll break down below.

This is very unlikely to happen. Slackware64 was designed from the start to be a "pure" 64bit OS, however, since many still need a multilib setup, it was made "multilib ready". Fewer and fewer items are going to need 32bit support, so fewer and fewer people are going to need multilib. I don't use it at all on my htpc.

There are already several DEs/WMs. Adding more would increase the work of Slackware devs and it is likely some would call it bloat. Many window managers and desktop environments are readily installable using pre-compiled packages, and even more are still installable via compiling with SlackBuilds. There's not many major desktops that aren't supported.

Nothing in Slackware currently requires qt5. Adding it would not resolve any dependencies and isn't beneficial out of the box. I imagine we won't see qt5 added until Pat adds Plasma5. In the meantime, you can simply install Eric's (alien bob) qt5 package, no compiling necessary.

Slackware doesn't have a dependency manager. It's been a selling point for a lot of people for a long time. It also doesn't openly support any 3rd-party repos, the closest being SBo getting an official endorsement from Pat. If anything, we'd probably see sbopkg added before anything else, but don't hold your breath.

As with qt5, nothing depends on these. If Pat were to add software that required these, then they would be added. But it isn't likely that he's just going to add dependencies because someone may install a 3rd-party package that requires it. Also, with ffmpeg, due to copyright law in some countries, Pat would have to ship a crippled version. As for extra programs, everyone has their "must-have" program that should be part of official Slackware. If everyone added everything they needed, Slackware likely wouldn't fit on a DVD anymore.

sbopkg includes the handy utility called sqg, which stands for slackbuild queue generator. You can either run it across the whole repo (sqg -a) or for a specific package (sqg -p package-name). It will go recursively through the repo and set up a queue file with the proper build order for all those packages. Then you just run sbopkg -i package-name, and then when it asks, select q for the queue file. It will then go through the queue and build and install things in the correct order. You can even edit the queue file to add additional optional dependencies or various options.

with : slpkg repo-enable i just add :
sbo -> Slackbuilds.org Source Codes to Compile
slonly -> Slackwares.org Precompile Binaries
multi -> Slackware 32 Bits Repository

manual add:
slpkg64 repo-add slwr64 http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackwa...ckware64-14.2/ -> i take this from the Slackware site like an Official Mirror.

Everyone has their own favorite installer. Personally, I was really happy with sbopkg until I found slackrepo. Now I use that to build all my packages in a VM and then install them onto my computers using slackpkg+. Again, if we were to make everyone happy and include all those different installers, we'd run into bloat issues. All are easy to install once you get Slackware set up.

I could see this being an issue. I know whenever I'm in the installer with partitions, I double check my work. Years ago, I accidentally wiped the partition table of a drive that had about 1.3GB on it. That actually had nothing to do with the installer, just me not paying enough attention to the commands I was typing and the drives I was referencing. It's a mistake I only need to make once and then never again.

I'm not saying any of this to try and discourage you. We need people who think outside the box and to continually make suggestions to improve Slackware, however with over a decade of experience with Slackware, I felt it was worthwhile to explain why you're not likely to see these changes (but, Pat does love to surprise -- he surprised all of us by adding pulseaudio for 14.2, so never say never :)).

If you installed KDE you would get "KDM" as your default session manager. If you did not install KDE, then all you get with Slackware 14.2 is "XDM".

I downloaded the following via Torrent and my MSI GT80 Titan machine doesn't even see it at all, it does not boot. Created a bootable flash with Roofus twice to no avail.

Slackware 14.2 x86 Install ISO disc 1 (A/AP/E/F/N/Y, bootable installer, kernels, extra/, testing/, USB and PXE installers, Slackbook)

etcetera 08-01-2019 11:32 AM

and if I go here and select Slackware store link, it either times out or results in an error.

I encourage anyone with ample disk space running a seedbox or a torrent client full time to seed the disk sets for 14.0 and 14.1. Most of the disks in each set, other than the install dvds and the first cd, each have 2 or fewer seeds. I get a fair number of connections on those torrents, but I have crap bandwidth and need to choke my upload down to ~765KB/s. Judging by my upload totals either those 1-2 other seeders are picking up the slack or a lot of people are giving up part way through. :(

Can you tell me why you would want to see torrents for Slackware 14.0 and 14.1? If you still need to install Slackware at this point, why not directly go for 14.2 and all its improvements?

I've never personally had this problem, but I've heard of people who can't get 14.2 to work on their machine, but for whatever reason 14.1 or 14.0 work. As long as 14.1 and 14.0 continue to be supported and people keep downloading them, I'll keep seeding them.
