Working Towards MATE 1.12

MATE developers have started to work towards MATE 1.12 and they have bumped several packages to 1.11.0 even though only 2 packages were published under 1.11.0 version (for now).

I also use this chance to make some changes to the SlackBuilds to match next Slackware release, which is to make the default ARCH for x86 is i586 although it will still build normally for i486.

That said, master branch is now diverging from 14.1-mate-1.10 branch which will exclusively track and build packages for stable releases (14.1) only. Master branch is now following development version of MATE, thus there's a chance for new deps in the future. For those who are building from source and living in stable releases, please make sure to checkout 14.1-mate-1.10 branch.

MATE's ROADMAP is also updated with the new goal. Hopefully all of them can be implemented in this cycle.

Aktivasi PRIME DRI3 Di Slackware64 Current

Apa kabar? Sudah lama sekali ya, saya pos artikel baru di blog saya ini. Maklumlah, sibuk ber-sosial-media. Siapa tahu dapat jabatan macam Fadjroel.

Kali ini saya ingin mengulas tentang PRIME atau mekanisme GPU Offloading dengan menggunakan fasilitas vgaswitcheroo di kernel Linux di Slackware64-current (last upgrade on 23-09-2015). Dalam tulisan saya setahun yang lalu, saya sudah menulis tentang PRIME di versi Slackware sebelumnya. Silakan baca juga artikel tersebut untuk melengkapi informasi di artikel ini karena saya tidak akan membahas bagaimana mengaktifkan dan memastikan sistem mendukung PRIME atau tidak.

Selain soal PRIME, saya juga akan membagikan resep saya kepada gamers pengguna Slackware bagaimana cara memanfaatkan fitur MESA 11 yang sudah dilengkapi dengan Gallium Direct3D state tracker (gallium nine) yang berguna untuk menerjemahkan instruksi Direct3D Windows ke hardware langsung menggunakan driver Gallium. Sayang sekali jika fitur hebat ini tidak digunakan oleh WINE. Padahal cukup dengan menerapkan patch NINE (wine-d3d9-patch) ke kode WINE dan bangun ulang, WINE sudah bisa menggunakan instruksi Direct3D versi 9 secara langsung tanpa harus dikonversi ke OpenGL. Kinerjanya bisa sampeyan lihat di hasil benchmark di artikel ini.

Poll Results and New Poll

It's been late for one month already, but it's better to be late than no post at all. So few months ago i asked which DE that people wished to be included in the future Slackware releases. Here are the results:
  44 (26%)
  29 (17%)
  25 (15%)
  11 (6%)
  30 (18%)
  34 (20%)
  51 (30%)
  7 (4%)
  21 (12%)

MATE is the highest votes with 30% followed by Cinnamon and LxQT. I'm not that surprised since many people loved the old GNOME2 and since MATE is based on it, it has high number of people who wished it to be included. Cinnamon is also quite interesting since it provides modern desktop with modern technology and it's still relatively new, but it has attracted many people already.

While i don't have any authority to give a decision whether all those options will be included in next Slackware or not, here's a good solution:
I'm also announcing new question for next poll. It's all about PHP. PHP 5.6 is still used in -current as of today (October 1 2015), but it will be supported until August 2016 and receive security updates until July 2017. Meanwhile, PHP 7.0 is approaching and it has reached RC3.
Which PHP version should be included in the next Slackware release?

    Intel Driver Problem Fixed

    In the last big update few days ago, there was a bug slipped the team in which Intel GPU users were unable to start their desktop after upgrading to the latest XOrg and Mesa packages. Many people reported this on LQ, G+, and also on AlienBOB's blog. Several people came up to help and Ponce finally gathered all the information and push a new build on his repository.

    The packages is good and i have tested it on my workstation which also uses Intel GPU and it does work. Few hours later, Pat pushed the new update for xf86-video-intel and some other related packages in -current tree. This issue should be solved by now and you can safely upgrade your packages using slackpkg as usual.

    Happy Slacking and Testing :)

    VMWare-Workstation 10.0.6 Patch for Linux Kernel 4.1

    It doesn't take long to find the patch for VMWare Workstation 10.0.6 against Linux Kernel 4.1 since the patch has been around since Linux Kernel 3.19 was introduced, so again, i have pushed the simple automated script to patch your VMWare Workstation against the latest Linux Kernel 4.1 into my SlackHacks github repository.

    Please let me know if you have any problems using it.

    NVidia 304.125 Patch for Linux Kernel 4.1

    As i mentioned before, if you are upgrading to the latest -current update, you *may* end up with a text-only system as your desktop will not load due to incompatibilities from your proprietary driver with the new Linux Kernel 4.1. This is the case on my desktop system where i used the legacy NVidia driver 304.125.

    While it already had XOrg 1.17 support, it wasn't ready to support Linux Kernel 4.1 (due to it's being released in 2014), so patches are needed in order to make it buildable.

    I have pushed 2 patches in my SlackHacks github repository to address this issue. I have tested it and it works fine on my desktop machine.

    Now, my next issue is to rebuild all third party packages that are linked to gnutls since it introduces another soname bumps. Also VMWare needs to be taken care as well since it failed to built. One step at a time.
