Slackware ChangeLog: August 29th

Looks like there was another minor update to the Slackware-current changelogs.  Here it is:

Tue Aug 29 06:24:26 CDT 2006
a/util-linux-2.12r-i486-4.tgz: Fixed incorrect permissions on /var/lock.
Thanks to Steven Robson.
f/linux-howtos-20060829-noarch-1.tgz: Updated the HOWTOs again. I guess back
in February this must have been looking ready to release. 😉
Thanks to Szymczak Artur for noticing the HOWTOs were stale.
x/x11-6.9.0-i486-10.tgz: Reverted the ATI hang patch after problem reports.
If you were helped by the patch it’ll be held in /extra for the release so
that hopefully everyone can enjoy a working ATI card. 🙂
Thanks again to Mark Canter, as this is a real problem but the patch does
seem to introduce some new issues of its own. It’s good to have an
alternate driver just in case, though.
x/x11-devel-6.9.0-i486-10.tgz: Recompiled.
x/x11-xdmx-6.9.0-i486-10.tgz: Recompiled.
x/x11-xnest-6.9.0-i486-10.tgz: Recompiled.
x/x11-xvfb-6.9.0-i486-10.tgz: Recompiled.
extra/slackpkg/slackpkg-2.09-noarch-1.tgz: Upgraded to slackpkg-2.09-noarch-1.
Thanks to Piter Punk.
Here’s the patched radeon module from the -9 X.Org Slackware packages.
There’s a README file included with it explaining what it is for with
references to a discussion of the issue.
isolinux/initrd.img: Fixed an installer bug where setup would ask which
swap partitions you’d like to use and then conveniently set them all up
for you if you selected at least one. Thanks to DEF.
rootdisks/install.1: Fixed a bug where libraries that were moved to install.2
to make space on install.1 were needed by /bin/mount. Thanks to David Bray.
rootdisks/install.2: Moved a couple of libraries to install.1.
Fixed installer swap bug.
rootdisks/ Fixed installer swap bug.

    Well, from what I have heard through the grapevine, we are looking at 2 more weeks before release but I am not quite sure if I can trust the source. We will see…
