Slackware64-14.1 ChangeLog (2013-10-16)

Wed Oct 16 05:36:47 UTC 2013

Here are a few more updates and bugfixes. The small networking utilities
should be safe upgrades (thanks to Luiz Gustavo). I'd thought about Samba
4.1 before the rc (and some more afterwards), and after testing it here
without any issues decided we should try it out. The Samba project is
known for very high quality releases, so I don't believe we'll be stung by
a .0 version here. The kernels were rebuilt to fix a regression that
occurred when the 3.10.0 kernel changed CONFIG_PARAVIRT_GUEST to
CONFIG_HYPERVISOR_GUEST, which caused some previously included VMWare and
Hyper-V drivers to not be built. These are the changed kernel options:
HYPERVISOR_GUEST n → y
+FB_HYPERV n
+HID_HYPERV_MOUSE m
+HYPERV m
+HYPERV_BALLOON m
+HYPERV_NET m
+HYPERV_STORAGE m
+HYPERV_UTILS m
+PARAVIRT n
+VMWARE_BALLOON m
+XEN_PRIVILEGED_GUEST n
Thanks to Victor Miasnikov for the bug report.
