Hi,

Following the Slackware hopefully final release candidate, here we are for Zenwalk 8.0 RC1.

Many upstream bugfixes (Logitech cordless keyboards support, subversion security fix, ....) and updates (kernel 4.4.7, Samba 4.4.2) . Many improvements in Zenwalk system tools to handle per-user settings like locale or http proxy.
Latest versions of userland applications : Chromium 49.0.2623.112 and Libreoffice 5.1.2 are also passengers of the wagon.

Ffmpeg has been updated to 3.0.1, and MPlayer 1.3 seems to be very stable nowadays when built dynamic (aka sharing ffmpeg libs), so I decided to release it "dynamic" : no more code redundancy.

You'll also note that (unusually) the Chromium saved password keystore is fully functional (which required a few investigations to teach XFCE how to unlock the Gnome keyring at startup).

Have a lot of fun, and don't forget to buy an official Slackware DVD at https://store.slackware.com/cgi-bin/store , even if you're using the Zenwalk desktop version ;)

PLease test !! and report !!

Hi JP,

on the mirror/subfolder http://download.zenwalk.org/x86_64/current/zenwalk/m/ is openshot, this program need mlt, goocanvas, pygoocanvas, optional frei0r. The last three packages are missing.
After a little search i found it on microlinux mirror.

PS.: Hope on the final version in the near future. ;D

Hi,
I currently have problems building frei0r, and tbh, I’m not really into compiling openshot at the moment. Maybe later.

I have installed httpd & mariadb. They running correctly, but don't start automatically on boot.
So permissions are ok:
Code:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1.1K Apr 11 20:32 /etc/rc.d/rc.httpd
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3.2K Mar  3 20:28 /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld
Do you have an idea ?
