Hi I've got a couple of questions
:: Updating to Slackware Current using Rsync ::
I've downloaded unofficial ISO's for Slackware-current a few weeks back & everything works fine so far
I want to update the contents of the & have extracted the content of the CD's to /var/slackware-current, Is this command correct ?
rsync -arvz --stats --progress -I --delete-after rsync://rsync.slackware.at/slackware/slackware-current/ /var/slackware-current
:: Compiling from the Slackware Sources keeping Binary Compatibility with slackware packages ::
I want to integrate KWin drop shadow patches from kde-look..org/content/show.php?content=10567
If i patch the slackware sources for kde & run the appropriate .SlackBuild script, will they be binary compatible with the stock slackware kde ? I'm asking this because someone on the page commented that
...... there's no need to recompile all code - just patch, run configure, run make in the directory where the patch is applied, and copy *.so files and kwin.
I was thinking that if i didn't have to compile everything (as in all the kde apps & everything), i could do an explodepkg of the custom Kdebase Package & use diff to find out the chenged files.
