The latest google-chrome is now available in untested.

Please test and report any issues.  While testing this on a 64-bit installation, I did run into this bug!topic/chrome/-WxP9tKE2vA

As a workaround, I patched the launcher script to disable spdy by default... My initial testing looks like everything works as expected.

The only annoyance I see with it is that it doesn't remember the window size(ie, if you maximize it, then close it, the next time it launches you will need to maximize it again)

Other than that, looks ok.

Loaded VL7.1RC4.2 64 tonight on a Dell Lattitude 620 laptop.  Used the "automatic" option.  Rebooted and it worked perfectly.  At least everything I tried worked.  I will play with it as time permits and see what breaks.  Tried to download Google Chrome but no slackware package seems to exist.  Chromium only, but firefox is about same as chromium.

It appears Gslapt is not getting all dependencies, installed gparted OK installed file-roller OK both packages work well now,before installing gparted file-roller did not work, installing gparted required 6 extra packages,installing file-roller said nothing about extra packages and it did not work until after gpart install. Set time after reboot,reboot again time wrong. I tried both VASM and menu set date and time.

Like to use file-roller it is in untested install shows in menu no icon and does not run.
VASM set time keeps going in loop or I am doing something wrong. After setting time never get to answer OK message box disappears. I am using VL7.1RC4.2 dated 04/06/15.

Hey Lyn,

The idea is to rewrite VASM in the near future. While we get there, we decided to clean-up and remove some stuff that doesn't work anymore or its core functionality was replaced by other tools. Your feedback about this and about the current state of VASM will be greatly appreciated.

The 7.1 untested repo is fairly full of packages now. There were a few that won't build as-is anymore that didn't get there.

Now is when turning off the other, stable repos in slapt-get/GSlapt will help a lot with testing.

No one's looking to add new applications until after release is final. But how about seeing if there's something that loads out of untested that is missing a dep? If it's off in packages or stable -- it's missing!
