Slackware64-14.2 ChangeLog (2015-12-18)

Fri Dec 18 05:28:25 UTC 2015

  • a/aaa_elflibs-14.2-x86_64-9.txz
    Added libstdc++.so.5.0.7. Thanks to schmatzler.
  • a/glibc-solibs-2.22-x86_64-2.txz
  • a/glibc-zoneinfo-2015g-noarch-2.txz
    This is now built independently from glibc.
    Don't list posix/ and right/ zones in the timeconfig menu.
    Hardlink more files in /usr/share/zoneinfo/posix/ to save space.
    Fix a bug in timeconfig when the zone selection in text mode is left empty.
    Thanks to Xsane for the suggestions… I used some of them. :) But,
    in my opinion, listing only the canonical timezone names in zone1970.tab
    goes a bit too far. Many of the non-canonical names are commonly used
    (such as US/Central vs. America/Chicago).
  • a/grub-2.00-x86_64-3.txz
    Patched bug where password protection during system startup may be
    bypassed by hitting the backspace key 28 times giving a rescue shell.
    Thanks to Hector Marco and Ismael Ripoll.
    For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2015-8370
    (* Security fix *)
  • l/glibc-2.22-x86_64-2.txz
    Don't include a copy of the timezone database or timeconfig script.
    Only ship locale files for C, POSIX, and en_US in the main package.
  • l/glibc-i18n-2.22-x86_64-2.txz
    Add a C.UTF-8 locale.
  • l/glibc-profile-2.22-x86_64-2.txz
  • extra/bash-completion/bash-completion-2.1-noarch-3.txz
    Create /etc/bash_completion.d/ in the bash-completion package.
    Thanks to Robby Workman.
