Slackware ChangeLog: September 26th

Here is the latest update to the Slackware-current changelog:

Tue Sep 26 05:57:52 CDT 2006
a/aaa_base-11.0.0-noarch-2.tgz: Updated the “Welcome to Slackware” email.
Added /mount directory, subdirectories, and symbolic links recommended by
the FHS, along with README files to help me understand the difference
between this directory and /mnt. πŸ˜‰
a/etc-11.0-noarch-1.tgz: Fixed a bug in /etc/csh.login that caused repeated
use of “csh -l” to duplicate search directories in the $path. Clearly
/etc/csh.login should set the path just as /etc/profile does.
This bug dates back at at least 1997, maybe earlier, so congratulations to
Dimitar Zhekov for winning this release’s “smite the oldest bug” award.
Added distcc port to /etc/services. Thanks to Erik Jan Tromp and
Robby Workman for the continual reminders. πŸ˜‰
a/pkgtools-11.0.0-i486-4.tgz: Made upgradepkg a little bit more gentle — if
it is run on a corrupted .tgz it will no longer remove the original package.
Thanks to Ric Anderson for the report.
Added rc.scanluns to the services setup menu.
a/sysvinit-2.84-i486-69.tgz: Fixed path to /sbin/initscript shown in init.8
(again). Thanks to Robby Workman.
Changed rc.S to run rc.serial according to whether the script is executable.
a/util-linux-2.12r-i486-5.tgz: Treat /etc/rc.d/rc.serial (to preserve file
permissions), /etc/serial.conf, and /etc/fdprm as ‘.new’ config files.
ap/lm_sensors-2.10.0-i486-3.tgz: Fixed hardcoded /usr/local paths in
sensors-detect. Thanks to Jakub Jankowski.
kde/kdebase-3.5.4-i486-7.tgz: Patched to fix media:/ URLs in Konqueror without
requiring HAL. Thanks to everyone involved in reporting this issue and
seeing that it was addressed:
A big thanks to coolo (Stephan Kulow) for coming up with a patch. πŸ™‚
zipslack/ Added ZipSlack.
