Slackware-13.0 ChangeLog (2008-09-02)

Tue Sep 2 15:26:09 CDT 2008

  • xap/pidgin-2.5.1-i486-1.tgz

Tue Sep 2 02:11:27 CDT 2008

  • n/samba-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz
    issue where group_mapping.ldb was accidentally chmod 666 (only in -current,
    as all previous Slackware versions use the Samba 3.0.x branch which is not
    affected). This build also adds the mount.smbfs wrapper script for
    mount.cifs, and a link to the wrapper from /usr/bin/smbmount. This may
    fix some of the issues that people were having mounting SMB filesystems.
    Note that SMBFS is considered obsolete now, and using mount.smbfs really
    isn't any different in function using the wrapper than using mount.cifs
    directly. For more information on the security issue, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3789
    (* Security fix *)
    Since this security issue only affects the unreleased development branch,
    (aka -current) this ChangeLog comment is the official notification.
    For those using older versions of Slackware, many of them got bugfix
    updates to the 3.0.x branch. Check the new packages out – they should
    correct some stability issues.
