HexChat icon:
HexChat installation wasn't updating icon cache. Looks like using the index files is where xdgmenumaker gets some of its speed.

Tried the new hexchat package in untested (2.10.2) and that worked  Smiley   I assume a later ISO build would pick this up, dunno.

Just tried "recently used files" with KnowledgeDex. That post was returned as #3 under "Forum". Nice.
Thanks for reporting the issue.

Tough search in any case.

While KnowledgeDex was down, I used the forum's builtin search (home help search profile . . .). Had to pass through an allusion in another thread, change terms, find . . .

Sparing the remaining details, I think you're looking for

Wow...after about 8 hours of my time I figured it out - not obvious by a long shot.  Thinking I could bypass the whole issue by installing more recent kernels, I installed the two latest and came up with kernel panic.  Here I finally deduced that I shouldn't do grub-update nor reboot a new configuration with usb drives attached.  So that solved that problem but still no internet connection.

Only after looking at iwconfig  I saw that the wireless device was ra0. I then copied this into the wireless device field of the main networking tool and voila - I got a connection!

I think I'm a little spoiled from the fast forum responses of the more mainline distributions.  If I have further issues with my installation, would you advise I also go over to the slackware forum?

I got netflix running natively on my mint 17 installation as it is reading html 5.  Now on my slower computer I would like to do the same.  From reading online, it seems I need a recent version of Google Chrome (version 38 or newer).  I've installed the most current but get GLIBC error message saying I need a more recent version.  Sorry I don't have the exact message..

I will let the hosting company know. Should be fixed shortly.

Installed 32-bit RC1 using delta from B1.1. WARNING: There were at least two versions of B1.1, so delta may not work for the B1.1 you have.

On B1.1, installer locked up after "installing bootloader". I used the same setup and options to install RC1. Install was flawless and completed normally Smiley

Normal user couldn't see bold text in manpages. Root didn't have this problem. Turned out default for bold is high white. Solution is to edit /usr/share/roxterm/Config/Colours/GTK. Find "cursor=#939309b609b6". Put "bold=#146108870887" as the next line. For users that have already modified the color scheme, the change goes in ~/.config/ .

EDIT: "bold=060606060606" is both simpler and bolder. The first was picked from the color wheel, this one by trial-and-error edit.

Installed HexChat. Icon doesn't show on menu. I'll look around for a way for xdgmenumaker to pick this up automatically.
