Sailor, et al...

Just stopped in at kernel.org and much to my shagrin there's no kernel version 3.18 listing. But there is 3.16.70 dated July 9. This kernel is periodic update only.

I see that in the most recent posts here, problems with latest releases of 3.18...a kernel EOL signature.

I will post this also at WOOF-CE thread.

Regards
8Geee

Hi 8Geee,

Thanks for the info. I tried to compile kernel 3.16.70 and it worked, but complained about some aufs patches not existing any more, so haven't taken the chance with it yet. Maybe I'll try again as 3.16.71 just came out (might not be a real problem anyway), but interestingly 3.18 is still being updated (just not on kernel.org) and only on the Android site. I believe you can actually download and compile the tar.gz here for the latest 3.18 patches but haven't tried it yet, maybe I'll give it a shot today Smile : https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/common/+/refs/heads/android-3.18

By the way, I am slightly curious about your comment here:

I need to pass this WARNING on...

Do not upgrade rdesktop, the listed Slackware14.0 version WILL borque puppy- it WILL NOT BOOT.

In fact its not really needed UNLESS using VLC as a youtube server to stream vids.

The current rdesktop can be removed using the file list in /root/.packages

Do you happen to know if that is with rdesktop-1.8.5 or 1.8.6? I noticed the quick update from 1.8.5 to 1.8.6 at roughly the same time as your post with this message:

Code:
Thu May 23 19:55:30 UTC 2019
patches/packages/rdesktop-1.8.6-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This is a small bug fix release for rdesktop 1.8.5. An issue was discovered
  soon after release where it was impossible to connect to some servers. This
  issue has now been fixed, but otherwise this release is identical to 1.8.5.

I kept the 5.7.1 iso at 1.8.4 for now, but can update it to 1.8.6 sometime if the problem you mentioned was only in 1.8.5.

the rdesktop in question is both AFAIK. Puppy refused to boot... never got to any desktop. I had to run latest AP-19 from CD and reformat USB stick. Not good.

I decided to remove the old rdesktop IIRC version 1.7.1

However, your Woof-CE might be different.

I've been running Slacko 583CE r7325 without problems for a month now, after doing my usual manual frugal update from r7222. I have a triple-boot setup on my ancient Celeron M laptop with WinXP, DPupStretch 7.5, and Slacko 583CE.

Since July I have been sharing a "portable" PaleMoon installation between DPupStretch and Slacko 583CE, but PaleMoon 28.7.0 just broke that scheme due to the differences in GLIBC versions between the two distros. So instead I've installed PM into Slacko 583CE using watchdog's palemoon-28.7.0-glibc219tweak.pet which works just fine. BTW this PET also works just fine in the Slacko 571CE installation I have on a flash drive.

Update 16 sep 19: PaleMoon 28.7.1 undid the GLIBC mess that 28.7.0 created, and I have been able to restore my shared-browser setup after updating PM to 28.7.1 in DPupStretch and uninstalling watchdog's PET from Slacko 583.

Thanks 6502coder. There is a new version in woof-CE called 5.8.10, I have been experimenting with it a bit but a few icons keep disappearing on me or turning black and the OpenWith has two entries for a few programs (like for UExtract) so I have held off continuing to upload 5.8CE isos here for now. I did rebuild 5.7.1 with the latest slackware patches a few days ago though and have been using that one as the main OS on my two netbooks, I think it works well enough here but if there's anything from 5.8CE anyone thinks should be backported to 5.7.1 too (especially bug fixes to add to the adrv) let me know.

PostPosted: Thu 12 Dec 2019, 13:43    Post subject: Slackware Updates Manager bug  

I've been running the Slacko 583 r7325 build since it was posted this past August. I just noticed that a bug that was previously reported and fixed has re-appeared; it's the one where the mirror-site selection dialogue in the Slackware Updates Manager has all the buttons labelled simply "z". Otherwise, this build has been trouble-free and I use it daily.
