Sun Aug 23 02:32:16 CDT 2009

  • a/etc-13.0-i486-2.txz
    Fixed wrong path in /etc/ld.so.conf.
    Thanks to Marco Pessotto and Toni Salminen.
    Ensure that groups added through the install script have “root” as
    members where appropriate.
  • l/icon-naming-utils-0.8.90-i486-2.txz
    Build package with $ARCH, not noarch.
  • xap/xgames-0.3-i486-2.txz
    Merged fixes to xlander:
    Avoid “warping” spacecraft position after pause for mouse click due to
    paused time being added to frame time.
    Decrease lateral thrust, but increase initial lateral velocity, to better
    match the original gameplay (DEC microVAX, early 1990s).
    Don't use unsigned (fix unsigned comparison warning).
    Bump patchlevel.
    Thanks to Gary Carvell.
    Added 2.6.30.5 generic Linux kernel packages in /testing. Release time
    is getting close, so we're sticking with the 2.6.29.6 kernels as the main
    kernels for Slackware 13.0. Besides, we know of at least one tricky issue
    with 2.6.30.x and the LILO bootloader, and the workaround that we know of
    likely isn't going to work on BIOSes older than 2001. Be sure to read the
    README_FIRST.TXT (really!) in the directory with the kernel packages if you
    intend to try these.
    testing/packages/linux-2.6.30.5/kernel-firmware-2.6.30.5-noarch-1_testing.txz:
    Added.
    testing/packages/linux-2.6.30.5/kernel-generic-smp-2.6.30.5_smp-i686-1_testing.txz:

    testing/packages/linux-2.6.30.5/kernel-modules-smp-2.6.30.5_smp-i686-1_testing.txz:
    Added.
    testing/packages/linux-2.6.30.5/kernel-source-2.6.30.5_smp-noarch-1_testing.txz:
