According to Stellarium website, release 0.12.5 back ports some of the
0.13.2 fixes and improvements.  Also, the qt-5.5 includes bug was fixed
upstream and should be released soon.


No need to jump through hoops on SBo, or use a patch from Gentoo as
opposed to the patch from upstream.  SBo is for the STABLE stock
Slackware release.  Every once in a while we'll find a glitch or two
with dependencies as an update for one program breaks another.   I am
not opposed to a small patch to get it to work, just in silly If-Then in
the script for fringe use cases.

Either wait for the next release, or if you are burning to run the
latest build on Slackware64 14.1, either get the upstream beta test
release, or downgrade to qt-5.4.x  You can get that slackbuild from SBo
cgit history.


all else stock (Mesa-9.1.7) except for nvidia-352-41. runs fine, 60fps
(capped to LCD monitor).  You do not need Mesa > 9 to run
stellarium-0.13.3 you just need a decent GPU, and my new i7-5280k
probably helps too.

My regular user's 2 cents.
