  • patches/packages/glibc-2.15-i486-8_slack14.0.txz
    Patched to fix integer overflows in pvalloc, valloc, and
    posix_memalign/memalign/aligned_alloc.
    Thanks to mancha for the backported patch.
    For more information, see:

    (* Security fix *)
    Also, as long as these packages were being respun anyway, I added a patch
    to fix the check for AVX opcodes. This was causing crashes on Xen.
    Thanks to Dale Gallagher.
