Slackware-13.0 ChangeLog (2008-09-11)

  • xap/xmms-1.2.11-i486-1.tgz
    is similar to audacious, but uses about a third of the CPU power.
    Please note that “doublesize” mode seems broken – if it is enabled, XMMS
    will crash, and then will not start again until $HOME/.xmms is cleared out.
    Any patch for this issue would be appreciated.

d/python-2.5.2-i486-4.tgz: The -3 package was missing sqlite3.so.
Thanks to Audrius Kazukauskas for pointing out the omission. And,
sorry about the omitted accent in your name. The limitations of ASCII
strike again.

A few updates… more to come.
a/glibc-solibs-2.7-i486-11.tgz: Recompiled against Linux 2.6.24.7.
a/glibc-zoneinfo-2.7-noarch-11.tgz: Rebuild from tzcode/tzdata2008e.
  • a/kernel-generic-2.6.24.7-i486-1.tgz
    We are bumping the kernel within the 2.6.24.x series for now rather than
    leaping for 2.6.26.x immediately for sereral reasons. First, we know that
    it works within the existing framework, and the config files did not need
    major changes (only CONFIG_SECURITY_FILE_CAPABILITIES was changed to =y for
    libcap support). Also, we know that the kernel headers are usable for
    compiling glibc, KDE, and several other important packages. Finally, we
    had to recompile the kernel anyway due to the GCC bump, and would rather not
    rush into 2.6.26.x. Finding the optimal .config files will not be trivial,
    speakup will need to be reevaluated, and so forth. But don't panic – the
    goal is 2.6.26.x (or newer, if it proves stable). Testing here and
    throughout the Slackware community continues with the latest kernels, and so
    far things are looking good. This is an interim kernel to make sure that
    video drivers, console UTF8, and other things don't suddenly begin to act
    strangely…

  • d/gcc-4.2.4-i486-1.tgz
    This an upgrade to a known stable GCC. The gcc-4.3.x branch is much more
    strict about source correctness, and many upstream sources would need to be
    patched in order to compile with it. Therefore, this is the logical next
    compiler to use until those issues are worked out upstream. Adding gcc-4.3.x
    at this time would be, IMHO, an annoyance for many people compiling their own
    sources or packages.
