Slackware, Slax Today Patrick J. Volkerding announced Slackware Linux 12.0 RC2. There are no big new features, this is almost a collection of bug fixes. A review of the RC1 can be found here (translation). A review of the Slackware-based Vector Linux 5.8 SOHO can also be found here.

I noticed that when I did a Slack install at the beginning of March using the current tree that XMMS wouldn't start. I checked the packages that were installed and noticed that XMMS was missing.

So I went to XMMS' web site to grab the source and was greeted with this message.

Bye Bye Slackware!

XMMS has been removed from the Slackware distribution.

xap/xmms-1.2.10-i486-3.tgz: XMMS developers: THANK YOU for your years of
dedication. We look forward to considering a new GTK+2 based design some
time in the future. (Package removed).

No, thank YOU for keeping a clean and tidy version of XMMS around without a gazillion insane patches. We will always love you! It's unlikely we will cross paths again, but we've enjoyed the lack of support cases the Slackware distribution has caused us. Much love <3 <3 <3.



I guess audacious will be my player of choice.
