XFast is a fast ultra lightweight xlib based EDE (desktop environment) alternative...
(It's basically a desktop environment that does not use a Mesa dependent toolkit)

Site is...

This package has not been adopted yet by ("slackonly" or)...
https://slakfinder.org
https://slackbuilds.org
https://pkgs.org

So far... I have not been able to successfully compile
this package with the following src2pkg conf...
see... Src2pkg.conf w/ "hardened" EXTRA_FLAGS

Thanx... in advance to anyone that is interested in sharing their precompiled package link.

Hi, David!
Hmm.....interesting.... I will give it a try!
Seems to be a bug in the sources, I'll see if can find it!

Regards!
Porteus is proud of the FASTEST KDE ever made.....(take akonadi, nepomuk and soprano out and you will have a decent OS).

If I were a gambling man, my money would be on you... :fine:

If you can fix the source code (tar) can you post a copy so I can compile
the source w/ optimization and security hardening using src2pkg?

It's written in C so it's vulnerable to ret2libc exploits.
