There will be another Release Candidate before the 1.0final

Since i have received some bugreports and also got some feedback from my bugzilla reports i think it is worth for a 1.orc3 in the next few days.

Until then do not use rc2 with buildmode "GNOMEM" or make sure you have manually added 'pulseaudio' to the list of packages to be installed, otherwise GNOME may fail to start. It does not help to add pulseaudio later because you must recompile gnome-settings-daemon to get pulseaudio support enabled.... read more

KDE4 on Slackware 12.2rc1

While testing the official KDE4 packages and also KDE4 build from the official sources i noticed that sound isn't working here for all KDE4 related applications. It looks like the xine backend for phonon is not working well since the gstreamer backend works very well.
