Slackware ChangeLog: July 30th

Lots of entries in the slackware-current changelog for July 30th. The 2.4.32 kernel got patched to fix X11 direct rendering with X.Org 6.9.0 and newer. MySQL was reverted from 5.0.23 back to 5.0.22. Why you ask? MySQL 5.0.23 was never officially released due to bugs. Somehow the 5.0.23 release made it to a few mirror sites.

n/samba-3.0.23a-i486-2.tgz: Fixed bad symlink to “using_samba” in the docs.
Thanks to Valentin Avram and William Hunt for reporting this.
ap/jed-0.99_18-i486-2.tgz: Reverted to from jed-0.99_16.
The version shipped in 0.99_18 seems to have problems unless jed is linked
with slang-2, which we’re putting off for a little while due to the major
version bump and to let code that uses slang have a little time to catch up.
Thanks to Luigi Genoni for the bug report and fix.
Thanks as well to Petri Kaukasoina who also reported the problem.
ap/mysql-5.0.22-i486-2.tgz: Reverted to MySQL-5.0.22. Evidently MySQL-5.0.23
was never officially released due to bugs, but made it to the mirror sites
anyway. Beat Vontobel’s web site has some additional information about this:
Thanks very much to Jakub Jankowski telling me the deal about 5.0.23.
ap/vim-7.0.042-i486-2.tgz: Upgraded to ctags-5.6.
Thanks to Michael Iatrou for pointing out the new ctags.
Fixed a bug in the build script’s patchlevel determination if $CWD contains
a dot. Thanks to Christophe Legras for the bug report and fix.
xap/vim-gvim-7.0.042-i486-2.tgz: Rebuilt. Fixed a bug in the build script’s
patchlevel determination. Thanks to Christophe Legras.
Fixed an undefined variable in the vim-gvim build script.
Thanks to Bryan Germann.

There’s lots more changes, so go checkout the changelog for the full list.
