Re: install emacs[solved]

The reason why Emacs is not possible to be installed with USM is that it is excluded in /etc/usm/files.conf (e directory). Maybe brokenman is vi-lover or this is some kind of conspiracy against emacs? ;) It does not help to just remove this e from the file, because in "usm -u slackware", the file th...

Re: Bash bug

@snake: So I can conclude that if I am using bash only for internal manipulations, that is that I stay within my linux box, there is no threat? :) Well maybe yes, however I suggest to update bash as it might be possible to do nasty tricks with this one. For example: https://www.trustedsec.com/septe...

Re: Bash bug

Yep, that bug works on Porteus too, so if you are using Porteus as webserver, sshd server, etc. fix it right now. Test with: env x='() { :;}; echo vulnerable' bash -c 'echo hello' Fix: http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware/slackware64-14.1/patches/packages/bash-4.2.048-x86_64-1_slack14.1.txz BTW, I...

Re: Porteus changing distro

I definitely vote for Slackware instead of any monsters size distros with more-or-less outdated versions of packages. What should be focused more is CLI tools like rpm2xzm to get other distros packages working as xzms. I don't want to have repository with forexample 100 different email programs to c...

Re: Porteus-v1.1rc1-i486 ready for testing

I do have older porteus on hard drive on eeepc, and that actually came to my mind that it might be the reason. Always fresh works fine and camera,wlan works nicely. Thanks!

Merge changes to LZM/XZ

Hi, Is there a tool/script already for "merge changes" for LZM/XZ packages? Sometimes I make a customized changes to for example configuration file and want them to be included on module (and not on changes dir) on next time I activate it (somewhere else). It would work as follows: merge_changes cur...

Re: I can upload .lzm module, how ?

From security reasons, I don't like the idea of "anybody can upload modules", at least for official repository. It will soon start to look like slax's repository... Better is to automate (with scripts) all the module checking, conversion from official slackware/otherdistros packages, and updating to...

Re: Package manager

I really liked the feature on slax.org modules that you could "active" program you want to use from web page, using "slix://..." url. We should have that feature on package repository. There are a programs that I need to use once in month or less, for example Inkscape, and it would be great to just ...

Re: New distro name

How about Relax?

I think the most advanced feature of all Slax variations is the flexibility of aufs and way of activate and deactivate packages when needed. so flexibility should be some part of the name. unfortunately FlexOS already exists.
