SlackE17 0.17.5

8 November 2013

I updated SlackE17 to 0.17.5. The tarball contains now the EFL 1.7.9 with some upstream fixes. Users will not see a lot of changes, this is mostly a bugfix release. E17 got bump to 0.17.5. Packages are available for i486, x86_64 and arm. You’ll need a Slackware 14.0.

You can download SlackE17 packages or sources at the usual place on Sourceforge.

NEW: if you like to do an on-line update, you can now use Slackpkg+ in order to install or update SlackE17. Once you installed Slackpkg+, just add one of this line to your /etc/slackpkg/slackpkgplus.conf

MIRRORPLUS['slacke17']=http://ngc891.blogdns.net/pub/slacke17/slackware-14.0/
MIRRORPLUS['slacke17']=http://ngc891.blogdns.net/pub/slacke17/slackware64-14.0/
MIRRORPLUS['slacke17']=http://ngc891.blogdns.net/pub/slacke17/slackwarearm-14.0/

And then, activate the repository by adding ‘slacke17′ to REPOPLUS. You will have to run

# slackpkg update

at least one time before using slackpkg as usual.

EDIT: Slackware 14.1 has just been released! I recompiled SlackE17 against it and it’s already available on SourceForge and with slackpkg+ for i486 and x86_64. ARM build will come later.

SlackE17 on Raspberry Pi

14 May 2013

Thanks to SeoZ who lends me his Raspberry Pi, I was able to test it with Slackware and E17 today. I first tried pre-built image from Stanley Garvey but couldn’t get it fit on my 8GB usb key, despise it was the same size.

So I followed the steps described on the SARPi website to install Slackware on the RPi. The process is very well describe and I got a ready to boot SD card quite easily. Unfortunately, the reboot failed (out of memory when udevd starts). An update to the kernel and firmware from an other computer fixed this issue.

Installation of SlackE17 went flawlessly, and I was soon in front of the E17 shell. This is the 0.17.2.1 version of Enlightenment. It was compiled with no specific optimization. Pictures:

E/EFL Korean Seminar 2013

12 May 2013

Yesterday was held the first E/EFL Korean Seminar in Seoul. There were talks about Enlightenment and the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries by Carsten Haitzler (Rasterman) and Cédric Bail ; Daniel Juyung Seo (SeoZ) and Chuneon Park (Hermet) talked about the EFL Open Source Community. I, myself, made a small presentation about Elemines.

There was some interesting discussions about Wayland and the status of Pitch Black terminology.

You can download my presentation (PDF) or read it online. Sources are available.

SlackE17 0.17.2.1 (and elemines 0.2.3)

3 May 2013

I just updated SlackE17 to 0.17.2.1 yesterday. The tarball contains now the EFL 1.7.6 with some upstream fixes. Users will not see a lot of changes, this is mostly a bugfix release. E17 got bump to 0.17.2.1 and terminology to 0.3. Packages are available for i486 and x86_64 ; arm will be available soon. You’ll need a Slackware 14.0.

Elemines was updated to version 0.2.3. I got help from Cédric Bail to make the software more EFL-ized as it was used for some QML/EFL interesting benchmarks. Elemines is now on the official Enlightenment git repository.

You can download SlackE17 packages or sources at the usual place on Sourceforge.

Minor updates…

5 February 2013

I updated SlackE17 to 0.17.1 last week. The tarball contains now the EFL 1.7.5 with some upstream fixes. Users will not see a lot of changes, this is mostly a bugfix release. As I didn’t post any picture of the Slackware theme last time, here is one:

What may really matters is that SlackE17 is now available for ARM. People with ARM device using ArmedSlack 14.0 should give it a try.

You can download SlackE17 packages or sources at the usual place on Sourceforge.

I took the opportunity to update elemines to 0.2.1 when shipping it with SlackE17. Some cosmetic changes, a bugfix and translations which were kindly contributed by the enlightenment-intl team. Thanks!
