Yenta_socket is there. Check in the bootmanager. What makes you think it's not there?

My understanding is that xz decompression is easier on the cpu than gzip. (It's compression that is slower). Can you find any documentation that states otherwise?

here is a rather extensive comparison of compression algorithms.
I believe it shows that xz is decompressing twice as fast as bzip2 but half as fast as gzip.
Depending on the xz compression level, xz also requires 4 to 100 times (!) more memory during decompression, compared to gzip.

Edited for clarity.

Interesting. Thank you.

However - I'm still stuck on the at&t cut you off at 5GB/month plan. So I'll stick with XZ. It should be fairly straight forward to recompress them if needed.

Minitube is now available in the ppm and also bluetooth.

If you want the bluetooth applet to work correctly - first install the fixed hicolor icon theme from here:

a great thing for saluki would be easier installation of proprietary drivers

in slacko it took me (i like to think an advanced user) a compilation + some dodgy use of an old pet i found just to get my broadcom-sta to work

so yeah, easier driver installation would rock

oh: and anyone know where i can get a little support with woof? my woof2 slackware cant use X

Check if your used kernel pet has symlink in /lib/modules/kernel-version-numbers. If it has...that is the problem...3builddistro does not like symlinks in that folder and the built initrd.gz is defective...resulting to the no X.
Extract the kernel pet...remove that symlink...repet it.

Sorry.
Indeed there is a module. I made ​​a mistake when I did a FULL install, and does not create the directory / lib/modules/2.6.39-ski/initrd is located in the module.
Fixed, everything works.

There is a problem with the way Firefox is installed, with it having it's own directory and not in the standard one /usr/lib/firefox.

I have installed Standlone flash player which requires these lib files from the firefox directory,
Code:
libssl3.so libsmime3.so libnss3.so libnssutil3.so libplds4.so libplc4.so libnspr4.so


if I system link these files to /usr/lib and I install the latest firefox then the system links are broken, also if java is loaded it creates a plugin in /usr/lib/firefox/plugins.

The menu icon is 16x16 which looks not that nice, all the other icons are a minimum of 48x48.

And, just to be a pain , the menu entry doesn't need to state the version, the mouse over shows that from the comment line in the firefox.desktop.

Other than these points, Firefox runs extremely well. Very Happy

Geoffrey

I have added setpci to the pciutils packages for the next release. You can download the new version here:
http://smokey01.com/saluki/pet_packages-saluki/pciutils-3.1.7-saluki.pet

I looked at xfce4-volumed, but I couldn't get it to work. I don't know of any other way to get pretty volume notifications. Possibly it needs a newer libnotify - but this is the most recent version I could get to compile.

I got openshot working finally, but the dependency checker in the ppm is not handling its dependencies correctly - I'll hopefully have that fixed in the next release.

new VLC 2.0 rc1

http://dereferer.ws/?http://download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/testing/vlc-2.0.0-rc1/vlc-2.0.0-rc1.tar.xz

anyone want to make a SFS?

and is XBMC impossible ? STU90 made one for Lucid, think that is compatible for Saluki ?

Best regards

Einar

openshot working finally


Appreciate this Jemimah, its a massive download (136 MB) but if you have the hardware flaunt it . . . Rolling Eyes

I got it working with Blender available as an SFS (change the Blender location to the full address which is something like /opt/blender/blender)
The extra gold title for 1.4.2 is there . . .
This is a powerful tool for video editing and simple enough for an amateur like me to use. I am sure there are many online tutorials for Openshot.
1.4.1 was reasonably stable under Slacko. (Openshot is not completely stable).
I am hoping this new one will be even more solid.
I created a couple of 3D titles, this is CPU intensive and makes use of Blender. Each took maybe 20 minutes on my Athlon 3500. Very nice. Thanks again.
