While there are still some docs that need updating and probably a few more
tweaks and updates here and there, everything is mostly in place for the next
stable release, Slackware 12.2. The versions of major components like X and
the kernel can be considered frozen. Anything major that we haven't done yet
will probably wait for the release after this next one. As Slackware 12.2 is
only a 0.1 version bump, we're trying to focus on making it better without
causing instability or losing compatibility with Slackware 12.1 wherever
possible. Invasive changes like the new X (that will require changes to
xorg.conf) and merging KDE4 should probably wait for Slackware 13.0.
We will call this batch Slackware 12.2 release candidate one. :-)
a/aaa_base-12.2.0-noarch-1.tgz: Bumped /etc/slackware-version version number
in preparation for a stable release, and updated the initial emails.
a/aaa_elflibs-12.2.0-i486-1.tgz: Updated the initial "starter" library package
to the latest versions in -current.
a/genpower-1.0.5-i486-2.tgz: Patched genpowerfail to halt the machine during a
power failure rather than causing it to reboot over and over.
Thanks to Marin Mitov for the bug report.
a/ntfs-3g-1.5130-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to ntfs-3g-1.5130.
a/pciutils-2.2.10-i486-2.tgz: Updated pci.ids.
a/sysvinit-scripts-1.2-noarch-26.tgz: Patched rc.M to start rc.wicd and
rc.snmpd if those scripts are executable, and removed the reference to the
old rc.hplip script. Also, modifed rc.K to shut down acpid using rc.acpid.
Changed /proc/bus/usb mounting in rc.S to use the options from /etc/fstab if
there is an entry for it there (thanks to Gerardo Exequiel Pozzi).
a/udev-135-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to udev-135.
a/usbutils-0.73-i486-3.tgz: Updated usb.ids.
ap/alsa-utils-1.0.17-i486-2.tgz: Patched rc.alsa to use [[:blank:]] instead of
[[:space:]] with tr, since the latter removes vertical whitespace and causes
everything to be incorrectly listed on one line.
Thanks to Ondrej Kubecka for the patch.
l/hal-info-20081127-noarch-1.tgz: Upgraded to hal-info-20081127.
n/ethtool-6-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to ethtool-6. Evidently this has been out
for some time -- thanks to Jan Rafaj for the notice.
n/network-scripts-12.2-noarch-1.tgz: Removed the automatic DHCP timeout
reduction in rc.inet1, since the kernel is not reliably returning correct
information about that. If the default 30 second timeout is too long, it
can be shortened in rc.inet1.conf.
Patched rc.ip_forward to reapply any non-default ipv4 parameters after
turning ipv4 forwarding on or off, as doing that clears them. Thanks to Mark.
tcl/tcl-8.5.5-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to tcl-8.5.5.
tcl/tk-8.5.5-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to tk-8.5.5.
xap/audacious-1.5.1-i486-2.tgz: Recompiled to make sure newer libraries will
work as expected.
extra/brltty/brltty-3.10-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to brltty-3.10.
extra/inn/inn-2.4.5-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to inn-2.4.5.
extra/wicd/wicd-1.5.5-noarch-1.tgz: Added wicd-1.5.5. Thanks to Robby Workman.
isolinux/initrd.img: Rebuilt removing some unneeded kernel modules.
Thanks to Stuart Winter and Eric Hameleers.
usb-and-pxe-installers/: Rebuilt removing some unneeded kernel modules.
