Slackware ChangeLog: September 12th

Patrick has made another small round of updates in slackware-current. He added rdesktop, even though we’re in RC:

Yes, we’re in release candidates, but if this doesn’t work at least it is small. πŸ™‚ I’ve had many, many requests, and it is needed by krdc, so that’s my rationale.

Here’s the full ChangeLog for today, including the rdesktop addition:

Tue Sep 12 06:29:32 CDT 2006
a/sysvinit-2.84-i486-67.tgz: Sleep 3 seconds before mounting non-root
partitions. This was a sleep that I’d removed earlier in the devel cycle to
see what it would break (if anything), and the answer is some external hard
drives that take a couple seconds to hotplug. Thanks to Fabio Busatto.
In rc.M, restart udevd when returning from single user mode.
Thanks to James Michael Fultz.
Patched initscript.5 man page to show proper /sbin/initscript path.
Thanks to Robby Workman.
Found another assumption that the kernel has hotplug support in the rc.udev
stop function. Thanks again to Gary Hawco for the original bug report.
a/udev-097-i486-9.tgz: Uncommented dmsetup rule for LVM2 — it doesn’t seem
to hurt anything. Thanks to Dex Filmore.
ap/diffutils-2.8.1-i486-3.tgz: Fixed sdiff.1 man page.
Thanks to James Michael Fultz.
kde/amarok-1.4.3-i486-3.tgz: Recompiled against new libmtp.
l/libmtp-0.0.18-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to libmtp-0.0.18.
l/libwpd-0.8.6-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to libwpd-0.8.6.
Thanks to Eugene C. for the CXXFLAGS advice.
n/imapd-4.64-i486-3.tgz: Added missing md5.txt mentioned in the imapd man
page, plus a note about additional (large) documentation in the sources.
The docs directory was also moved to /usr/doc/imapd4.64.
Thanks to Mark Flacy for reminding me about this one.
n/rdesktop-1.4.1-i486-1.tgz: Added rdesktop-1.4.1. Yes, we’re in release
candidates, but if this doesn’t work at least it is small. πŸ™‚ I’ve had
many, many requests, and it is needed by krdc, so that’s my rationale.
Oh — and thanks to everyone for positive feedback on libgpod. I also fixed
the typo in my request for feedback below. I hope that doesn’t break too
many ChangeLog parsing scripts…
n/stunnel-4.17-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to stunnel-4.17.
Thanks to Cal Peake for the notice.
