Salix Xfce 14.0RC3

Here goes another one. The changes since RC2 are very few this time. All we need now are a few successful installations and we're realising it as final.

Changes since RC2 are:
  • the trouble with unzip crashing on some very specific zip files has been fixed.
  • the GNU Privacy Assistant tool has been removed from the iso. It seems nobody was using it.
  • the flash-plugin got a security upgrade.
  • a bug with wicd not running post/pre connect scripts was fixed.
  • mate-file-archiver was upgraded to 1.4.1 (bugfix release).
  • libreoffice will not prompt for an upgrade from inside its own GUI when a new libreoffice version will be released.

For people that have installed the RC2, all changes can be applied just by upgrading packages to the latest versions. All except the last one that is. For that you'll have to go into the libreoffice preferences window and uncheck the option to notify about updates.

You can download the iso images from the following links through Sourceforge or using a torrent client.

Just tried playing a CD with VLC and the sound is awful. Fine in 13.37 Ratpoison. Awful ... to be more precise, thin, tinny, crackly. Reinstalling ugly gstreamer plugins made no difference.

A vague report like this isn't much use I'm sure, but it's at least an indication that all may not be well in the multimedia department - especially if anyone else can confirm or disconfirm.

Just installed on my laptop.

Running smooth so far.

Edit - Day 2, still running smoth, but conky will not build. Tried to build from source directly, and from SlackBuilds. Get an error related to libdl.so.2.

Not a deal breaker.

It does not require many words to speak the truth.

Just tried vlc. Unable to play an audio CD nor a DVD. The disks just will not open or vlc does
not find them. After some trying the system froze. :(

I actually dont't care about vlc. There are many alternatives. If a program does not run in my
box out it goes. Why should I bother and waste my time. ;)

Now I am just waiting for the Fluxbox-14 of Salix.

I must be the only person who uses GNU Privacy Assistant, I have peoples keys from bitcoin-otc stored in there.

We've been trying to duplicate that, but DVDs actually play here after a fresh installation and installing all codecs. That is installations on real PCs and not virtual machines. As we can't find a way to faithfully reproduce it, we've decided to just let it be.

Exactly. If a media player doesn't suit you, feel free to install another one, there are a lot to choose from.

You can still install it through the package manager.
