Here is the status of the SlackBuilds I maintain (as well as some deps I
had to install) as to their status on a fresh install of -current:
audio/audacity - untested; issue with libsndfile (see below)
multimedia/gpodder ok (need to update README re: xdg-utils, sqlite, and
intltool since they are now in -current)
system/pcmanfm ok (need to update README re: intltool since now in -current)
Others SlackBuilds I had to build/install to satisfy dependencies of the
As for Audacity, this software requires libsndfile, which I do not
maintain. I tried to build and install libsndfile on -current, but it
failed due to some hardcoded references to automake 1.9.x and -current
ships with 1.10. I saw one reference in configure and maybe two others in
aclocal.m4. I tried manually patching them with some sed -i lines in the
libsndfile SlackBuild, but didn't get far and had to stop hacking on it.
Speaking automake sed's, I recently added such a line to the Audacity
SlackBuild to get it to work on 12.1 with automake 1.9.x. Now that
automake 1.10 is in -current, I think this sed can be removed from the
Audacity SlackBuild but since I can't get libsndfile to compile yet on
-current I can't test Audacity on -current.
If I come across anything else, I'll report it.
