Well, we’re continuing down the road towards a Slackware 11 beta. Personally, I expected to see a beta out by now, but what do I know? This round of changes includes quite a few upgrades to packages and some fixes to current packages. The entire changelog for August 7th is below:
/pcmciautils-014-i486-1.tgz: Added pcmciautils-014, needed to configure PC
cards on systems running 2.6.x kernels.
a/sysfsutils-2.0.0-i486-2.tgz: Added missing libsysfs.so symlink.
a/sysvinit-2.84-i486-61.tgz: Merged Piter Punk’s changes for the new udev.
Please make sure to move all the .new files in /etc/rc.d/ into place for
this to work correctly!
a/udev-096-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to udev-096.
Thanks to Piter Punk for his great work to get this just exactly perfect.
a/grep-2.5-i486-3.tgz: Improved build script and rebuilt. I considered using
grep-2.5.1a, but found some problem reports concerning it and decided such
an upgrade would be best left for the next -current. There have been no
bug reports here concerning grep-2.5, so I see no reason to fix that which
does not appear to be broken. It’s more important to have a known to be
stable grep than it is to have the latest version, IMHO.
a/pciutils-2.2.3-i486-2.tgz: Fixed missing pci/types.h header file.
Thanks to Konrad Rzepecki.
ap/man-pages-2.39-noarch-1.tgz: Upgraded to man-pages-2.39.
n/lftp-3.5.3-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to lftp-3.5.3.
n/ncftp-3.2.0-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to ncftp-3.2.0.
n/popa3d-1.0.2-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to popa3d-1.0.2.
n/vsftpd-2.0.5-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to vsftpd-2.0.5.
xap/imagemagick-6.2.8_8-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to ImageMagick-6.2.8-8.
xap/sane-1.0.18-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to sane-backends-1.0.18.
extra/grub/grub-0.97-i486-2.tgz: Upgraded to grubconfig-1.28.
