It's a girl! :-)
I know a lot of you have been wondering what's going on here, and the news
is that my wife Andrea delivered our first child, a daughter Briah Cecilia
(briah at slackware dot com :-) on 2005-11-22, and that event (and the weeks
that led up to it) has had to take priority over the usual tasks of
download/compile/test/package/upload. But, things should be getting back to
normal here (more or less) over the next couple of weeks, particularly after
the holiday season has come and gone. As you might expect, there are a lot of
friends and relatives who want to see her. :-)
Thanks for your patience, and we now return you to your regularly scheduled
a/bash-3.0-i486-4.tgz: Fixed an obscure bug where suspending the first process
started in a new shell would cause it to hang.
Thanks to Grant Coady for discovering and fixing this bug.
a/bzip2-1.0.3-i486-2.tgz: Patched a minor bug in the libbz2 shared library
Makefile to enable support for large files. Thanks to Timothy C. McGrath
and Manuel Jose Blanca Molinos both of whom pointed out this problem and
a/glibc-solibs-2.3.6-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to glibc-2.3.6 shared libraries.
a/glibc-zoneinfo-2.3.6-noarch-1.tgz: Upgraded to glibc-2.3.6 timezone info.
a/kernel-ide-2.4.32-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to Linux 2.4.32 bare.i kernel.
a/kernel-modules-2.4.32-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to Linux 2.4.32 kernel modules.
ap/alsa-utils-1.0.10-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to alsa-utils-1.0.10.
In /etc/rc.d/rc.alsa, load snd-seq-oss. (Thanks to Tomas Matejicek)
d/gcc-3.4.4-i486-2.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.4.4. gcc-4.x isn't ready yet as
a prime time compiler yet, IMHO -- still too many things it can't compile,
internal compiler errors, and the like. How much of that is the compiler
and how much is source needing to be updated is a matter for debate,
though. Also, the -mcpu=i686 option used in Slackware to optimize
binaries for i686 or Athlon platforms has changed to -mtune=i686 with the
gcc-3.4.x compiler series. I'll be updating the SlackBuilds over time as
the packages are upgraded.
d/gcc-g++-3.4.4-i486-2.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.4.4.
d/gcc-g77-3.4.4-i486-2.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.4.4.
d/gcc-gnat-3.4.4-i486-2.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.4.4.
d/gcc-java-3.4.4-i486-2.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.4.4.
d/gcc-objc-3.4.4-i486-2.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.4.4.
d/kernel-headers-2.4.32-i386-1.tgz: Upgraded to Linux 2.4.32 kernel headers.
k/kernel-source-2.4.32-noarch-1.tgz: Upgraded to Linux 2.4.32 kernel source.
l/alsa-driver-1.0.10_2.4.32-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to alsa-driver-1.0.10 for
l/alsa-lib-1.0.10-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to alsa-lib-1.0.10.
l/alsa-oss-1.0.10-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to alsa-oss-1.0.10.
l/glibc-2.3.6-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to glibc-2.3.6.
l/glibc-i18n-2.3.6-noarch-1.tgz: Upgraded to glibc-2.3.6 i18n files.
Added files in /usr/share/locale that hadn't previously been included in
this package (thanks to Lasse Collin).
l/glibc-profile-2.3.6-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to glibc-2.3.6.
n/dnsmasq-2.24-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to dnsmasq-2.24. Thanks to Simon Kelley
(and one of his anonymous testers) for helping to update the SlackBuild.
n/php-4.4.1-i486-2.tgz: Recompiled with a patch from PHP CVS that fixes issues
with SquirrelMail and possibly other PHP applications. I'd hoped there would
be a new PHP out quickly to address this but since there isn't I'm making an
exception to the usual policy here on merging patches from CVS as a fair
number of users seem to be affected by this issue. Let me know if this
doesn't help or if any undesired side effects are noticed.
This problem was first reported here by Gerardo Exequiel Pozzi, but was
later reported by too many people to list. Thanks, everyone! :-)
xap/mozilla-firefox-1.5-i686-1.tgz: Upgraded to firefox-1.5.
bootdisks/*: Upgraded to Linux 2.4.32.
Upgraded to linux-wlan-ng-0.2.1pre25 (for Linux 2.4.32).
Upgraded to linux-wlan-ng-0.2.3 (for Linux 22.214.171.124).
isolinux/initrd.img: Upgraded USB/IEEE1394 modules to Linux 2.4.32.
isolinux/network.dsk: Upgraded network modules to Linux 2.4.32.
isolinux/pcmcia.dsk: Upgraded pcmcia modules to Linux 2.4.32.
kernels/*: Upgraded to Linux 2.4.32 (and test.s to 126.96.36.199).
rootdisks/install.1: Upgraded USB/IEEE1394 modules to Linux 2.4.32.
rootdisks/install.2: Upgraded USB/IEEE1394 modules to Linux 2.4.32.
rootdisks/install.zip: Upgraded USB/IEEE1394 modules to Linux 2.4.32.
rootdisks/network.dsk: Upgraded network modules to Linux 2.4.32.
rootdisks/pcmcia.dsk: Upgraded pcmcia modules to Linux 2.4.32.
Upgraded to alsa-driver-1.0.10 for Linux 188.8.131.52.
Upgraded to Linux 184.108.40.206 (generic kernel).
Upgraded to kernel headers from Linux 220.127.116.11 (see the README
file in testing/packages/linux-18.104.22.168/ for information about
why you probably *don't* want to use these headers...)
Upgraded to kernel modules for Linux 22.214.171.124.
Upgraded to Linux 126.96.36.199 kernel source.
testing/packages/php-5.1.1/php-5.1.1-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to php-5.1.1.
This no longer seems to ship with PEAR, and if anyone knows why this is or
how to go about adding it back to the package (if it's still required), I'd
be interested to know.
Mon Nov 7 19:54:57 CST 2005
n/elm-2.5.8-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to elm2.5.8.
This fixes a buffer overflow in the parsing of the Expires header that
could be used to execute arbitrary code as the user running Elm.
Thanks to Ulf Harnhammar for finding the bug and reminding me to get
out updated packages to address the issue.
