Slackware-13.0 ChangeLog (2008-07-16)

  • a/ntfs-3g-1.2712-i486-1.tgz
    This has been compiled to use the internal FUSE library rather than the
    system FUSE library. The benefit of this is that if /bin/ntfs-3g is make
    setuid root, then non-root users can use it to mount NTFS partitions if
    /etc/fstab allows it. Also, this version of ntfs-3g would require the CVS
    version of external FUSE, so that helped make this an easy choice.
  • a/util-linux-ng-2.14-i486-1.tgz
  • x/mesa-7.0.3-i486-1.tgz
    We've had a few reports that this new mesa version fixes some instability
    issues people were having with mesa-7.0.2. While it's not usually a good
    idea to run -current packages on older Slackware versions, this mesa package
    should be fully compatible with a patched-up Slackware 12.1 box. If mesa is
    causing issues for you, it might be worth a try. At worst you'd have to go
    back to the older package.
    When we make changes to the libraries or toolchain that would make -current
    break compatibility with Slackware 12.1, we will try to make note of it here.
    However, we don't always know what side effects or regressions an update may
    cause, but will do the best we can to offer a heads-up where possible.
    Upgraded to Seamonkey 1.1.11.
    This release fixes some more security vulnerabilities.
