Tracking development of slackware in git

Something had been nagging me for a long time, and I finally had enough of that itch and decided to deal with it. As you know, there’s a private and a public side to Slackware’s development. The discussions and decisions are handled internally among the members of ‘the team’ and are not shared with the […]

VLC rebuilt for -current, Chromium and Palemoon updated

Browser updates: both Google Chromium (66.0.3359.181) and Palemoon (27.9.2) released new versions last week which I packaged for Slackware 14.2 and -current. The Palemoon update contains CVE-tagged security fixes. You are advised to upgrade. The VLC 3.0.2 player was broken in slackware-current after the recent update of the libidn package. I rebuilt the vlc package for -current […]

Fun and games in -current when ABIs break

Oh my. It was not an April Fools joke when the ChangeLog.txt of slackware-current mentioned the following (I left out the non-relevant package updates):   +————————–+ Sun Apr 1 02:53:26 UTC 2018 … l/icu4c-61.1-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded. Shared library .so-version bump. … l/poppler-0.63.0-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded. Shared library .so-version bump. All of us  who follow Slackware’s development know that […]

KDE 5_17.02 for Slackware-current is available

I am happy to announce my February 2017 release of the ‘ktown’ packages: KDE 5_17.02. What you get in this new release is: KDE Frameworks 5.31.0, Plasma 5.9.2 and Applications 16.12.2. All built on top of Qt 5.7.1. Soon, I will compile this version of Plasma 5 on Slackware 14.2 (only 64bit) as well, but I gave priority last few days to the new LibreOffice packages […]

Plasma 5_17.01 for Slackware

My previous post concerned itself with the question: what do I spend my time on? Keeping Plasma 5 working on Slackware 14.2 and -current, and for 32bit as well as 64bit architectures, is simply too time-consuming for a monthly release. I asked for your opinion and I was glad for all the feedback I have […]
