Slackware ChangeLog: September 19th


Apparently in honor of “Talk Like a Pirate” Day, Patrick posted the following addition also today:

Tue Sep 19 18:13:09 CDT 2006
l/arts-1.5.4-i486-2.tgz: Patched an annoying bug where audio programs such
as ogg123 would not work unless KDE had been run first. I took several
stabs with me sword at ripping out kdebase’s surprise HAL requirement as
well, but the best I could achieve was “Internal Error”. Aarrr!!

An update has been added to the -current changelogs. Here is the entry:

Tue Sep 19 14:07:49 CDT 2006
a/gzip-1.3.5-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gzip-1.3.5, and fixed a variety of bugs.
Some of the bugs have possible security implications if gzip or its tools are
fed a carefully constructed malicious archive. Most of these issues were
recently discovered by Tavis Ormandy and the Google Security Team. Thanks
to them, and also to the ALT and Owl developers for cleaning up the patch.
For further details about the issues fixed, please see:
(* Security fix *)
n/procmail-3.22-i486-2.tgz: Added support for large (2GB+) mailboxes.
Thanks to Dominik L. Borkowski.
isolinux/initrd.img: Patched installer to allow splitting a package series
over two or more pieces of optical media. If a package directory contains
a file named README_SPLIT.TXT, then it will be continued on the next disc.
An example of such a file can be found in /isolinux.
Thanks very much to Eric Hameleers for the initial patch and testing!
rootdisks/install.1: Rebuilt.
rootdisks/install.2: Patched to allow a split package series.
rootdisks/ Patched to allow a split package series.
