While it's true that getflash-1.2 is a script I don't think it's capable at this stage of fetching flashplayer for the x86_64 or ARM (or any other) arches at this stage. Maybe common?

Please consider updating default-application-chooser to this version internationalized by shinobar, the version in Wary 5.4 beta1 is still English-only:
This version also introduces defaultchat support.

Re GetFlash noarch
Ok, I have moved it to the 'common' repo.

Another which you may want to stick in common is cups-1.4.8. I have built a slacko- beta (with slackware-14.0 binaries) with cups-1.4.6 (wary), ghostscript-8.64 (rcrsn51) and gutenprint-5.2.9 (slackware) and it works really well, no-one has reported any printing issues to do with that setup. Although it doesn't matter, I just copied your entry in the DITRSO_PKGS_SPECS-slackware-14.0 from your Precise specs.

I'll be ready to give you the patches for woof soon to build from slackware-14.0, but there are some weird problems which will need your input. One, is that slackware have moved to "kmod", (module-init-tools is deprecated) and that presents some problems with depmod. I have work arounds but they require hacks to some system bootup files. Please see PM for another critical issue.

Er, read cups-1.4.8 in previous post
