Slackware 12.1 ChangeLog: Nov 16 – Nov 17

Samba security update, and some HAL/X11 fixes

Sat Nov 17 00:19:20 CST 2007
ap/cdparanoia-IIIalpha9.8-i486-3.tgz: Recompiled with SG_IO patch. This
didn't seem to make a noticable difference, but to someone it might.
x/xf86-video-intel-2.2.0-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to xf86-video-intel-2.2.0
x/xf86-video-sis-0.9.4-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to xf86-video-sis-0.9.4.
OK, now that that Samba fix is done, we can give you a working X server. :-)
Evidently, the HAL/D-Bus enabled X server, xf86-input-evdev, and one of HAL's
.fdi files aren't playing well together. After considering three possible
workarounds, it was decided to disable D-Bus/HAL support in the X server for
now. If you really want to play with X input hotplugging, it's easy enough to
modify the source/x/x11/configure xorg-server configure file to enable D-Bus
and HAL and run: ./x11.SlackBuild xserver xorg-server
Xdmx remains gone per X build recommendations.
x/xorg-server-1.4-i486-4.tgz: Recompiled without input hotplugging support.
x/xorg-server-xnest-1.4-i486-4.tgz: Rebuilt.
x/xorg-server-xvfb-1.4-i486-4.tgz: Rebuilt.
xap/xscreensaver-5.04-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to xscreensaver-5.04.
Fri Nov 16 17:22:18 CST 2007
Upgraded to samba-3.0.27.
Samba 3.0.27 is a security release in order to address a stack buffer
overflow in nmbd's logon request processing, and remote code execution in
Samba's WINS server daemon (nmbd) when processing name registration followed
name query requests.
