New ISO for Slackware Live PLASMA5, with Stack Clash proof kernel and Plasma 5.10.2

After I released KDE 5_17.06 (June edition of my Plasma 5 package set) for Slackware 14.2 and -current a few days ago, I have now also uploaded an ISO image for the Slackware Live PLASMA5 Edition based on liveslak 1.1.8.1 and Slackware-current dated “Mon Jun 26 20:36:18 UTC 2017“. It will be the only Live variant this time, […]

LibreOffice 5.3.4 packages for -current

When looking for package updates in preparation for a new Slackware Live PLASMA5 edition, I noticed that the Document Foundation had released LibreOffice 5.3.4 without updating their blog with the news – it’s only mentioned on the download page.

Plasma 5 for Slackware – June release

Slackware64 14.2 users will have to wait another day, but I have uploaded my latest set of Plasma 5 packages for Slackware-current to the ‘ktown’ repository. KDE 5_17.06 contains: KDE Frameworks 5.35.0, Plasma 5.10.2 and Applications 17.04.2. I based this new release on Qt 5.9.0 (at least for Slackware-current… for 14.2 I will stick to Qt 5.7.1). NOTE: I will no longer be releasing […]

In Slackware-current we use version 7.1.0 of the gcc compiler suite. These advanced compilers can sometimes be quite a bit more strict about what they accept as valid code. As a consequence, you will regularly run into compilation issues with software. Not just the software made with the scripts on slackbuilds.org, but also some of […]

Adobe Flash security update June ’17

This month’s security update for the Flash Player plugin shows that the player has moved to a new major version number: 26. Time to upgrade, folks – in case you still need Flash on your computer. The new version is 26.0.0.126 for both the PPAPI (Google Chrome and friends) and the NPAPI (Mozilla Firefox and friends) based plugins. You […]
