wish list.

Is there any chance of getting updates with current packages for core and xorg.? Developers, if find time, please do the needful.

We can use old kernel and DEs.

Many including me have a 32 bit laptop. Thanks.

As part of an exercise in upgrading applications in porteus-4.0-lxde-i586, I made a module for smplayer-21.1.0(current) and added required libraries from qt-5.12 and qt5 directory with folders plugins/platforms exists.

ldd smplayer does list any missing stuff, but fails to start with this error..
guest@porteus:~$ smplayer
This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb"
in "".

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, xcb.

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
Aborted


It lists available platforms (xcb), butstill fails to start.

Any solutions?
