Woof: Support Slackware 14.0

01micko has provided files for Woof, to build Slacko from Slackware 14.0 packages.

Woof commit:

Then I made some small changes to file DISTRO_PKGS_SPECS-slackware-14.0. Mostly some extra modem firmware PETs:

...I also changed '915resolution' back to "yes", as my understanding is that the X.org 'vesa' driver needs it. The hardware-specific drivers don't, and never have, I think.

slacko packages
Just a note that I haven't uploaded all the packages yet to build a sane slacko as the list is not final. This will be done when I reach RC status, maybe in a couple of weeks.

momanager another 13 seconds faster
Apologies for misusing this thread but I thought on the other thread it can be overlooked.

#20121102 L18L: equivalent for menu entries, saved me 13 seconds each.

momanager-121102 is much faster now.

Re faster momanager
But, aren't you assuming that the gettext-ed scripts won't change during the same session?

You can't make that assumption. The developer might be adding new scripts, for example, such as by installing a PET, and this must be detected when momanager next runs.

Re:Re faster momanager
Yes, I am assuming that the gettext-ed scripts won't change during the same session!

Usually a translator is not installing new scripts while translating, I did not do that at least.

-A reboot or maybe just a simple
-rm /tmp/momanager/*
-- invoked from petget,
-- or a "refresh" button
will make momanager detect everything newly.

Speeding up momanager seemed to have got some attention: 14 downloads
