    Reverted to Linux 3.15 since this is the last Kernel which has working support
    for the network driver on the Trimslice - the r8169. This is a known issue
    upstream, so hopefully will be fixed soon and we can move forwards again.
  • e/emacs-24.4-arm-1.txz
  • k/kernel-source-3.15.10-arm-1.txz
  • n/openssh-6.7p1-arm-1.txz
    This update fixes a security issue that allows remote servers to trigger
    the skipping of SSHFP DNS RR checking by presenting an unacceptable
    HostCertificate.
    For more information, see:

    (* Security fix *)

  • a/sysvinit-scripts-2.0-noarch-17.txz
    When pre-configuring /etc/inittab.new to start getty on the a serial console,
    check for the appropriate entry in /dev rather than trying to identify the
    hardware via /proc/cpuinfo. Since the introduction of Flattened Device Tree,
    detecting hardware is harder since the hardware info is either missing or
    in different locations. We are now checking for the presence of /dev/ttymxc0
    and /dev/ttyAMA0, and falling back to ttyS0. The serial device entry will only
    be present in /dev if the hardware is present, and it's a pretty safe bet that
    that serial port should be used for the user to login locally.
    Thanks to Exaga for helping test this.
