I tried current 5 and its look very good - but still no bluetooth ?
Yeah, i'm lazy for now. I asked some questions about it but still no answer. I presume i'll have to dig it again myself.
Probably missed the questions, but it's a matter of porting http://git.openpando...uetooth_work.sh script and applying 0001-hciattach_tialt-Implement-texas_change_speed-functio.patch and firmware_path.patch from http://git.openpando...es/bluez/bluez4 on top of bluez.

Thanks.


So i have to patch bluez and recompile it ?

So far it seems like the deps are already there, but if I stumble across something I'll report.
Ok.

BTW i had to give full absolute pathes to hciconfig and hciattach in op_bluetooth_work.sh, because of sudo.


-EDIT:


Ok, patched and now recompiling bluez.

w00t!


Man, that's just awesome! That's the only thing I'm missing now! What was wrong there, the bluez package?


// I'm about to begin my compiling marathon now, let's see what I'll manage to make work.

Yup. Needed a patch.


I was able to connect my bt mouse, that's the only test i made.


Also, the Slackware bt manager is pretty nice.


I'll include working bt release in the next -current build (it's nonsense to patch a -current).


I'm building a clean patch for 13.37 right now. Need to test it after.


May upload tonight or tomorrow.

Working, but behaves badly on 13.37 due to a missing python dependency.


I'll check this.

Building stuff, taking notes...


I'd like to ask one question though: it's not like 8 Gb is a plenty of room (but it's the fastest SD card I have), I'd like to clean the systme up a little, most likely get rid of all things KDE. Is there a method to safely and quickly delete all of KDE packages?

Ah, so there is a metapackage there. Sweet.


So far the following stuff from slackbuild.org compiles as it is on the system you ship:


abook


centerim


stalonetray


cmus


ranger (python file manager, slow to start for a cli app, meh)


calcurse


I also made sure it runs, but didn't configure it yet.


Had some unmet dependencies with feh, parcellite and newsbeuter, fixing, will post an update tomorrow.

Now I need FBReader and probably some smtp/imap software to make mutt worthwile and a bunch of cli tools I use. Will upload whatever gets compiled by midnight. :)
For fbreader, don't forget to build liblinebreak with UI=gtk if you remove kde.

It's about the groups of packages:

Cool.

I usually compile with all dependencies.

Isn't ffmpeg already there? Seems like it is, because it plays music for me. :)


Also, epdfview, xarchiver and thunar-archive-plugin can be both built right after install, very good.


Damn, it's addictive, I must have a nap. :)


Will try to sort out parcellite, feh and newsbeuter tomorrow, they shouldn't be too difficult to build.


What could be a hassle is luakit, and then I must contact the developer of one nice python dictionary script.

No ffmpeg. I didn't tried to see what went wrong, very likely a missing dependency.


Yup, Slack opens a lot of possibilities.
