  • a/mkinitrd-1.4.8-arm-4.txz
    Blacklisted rules.d/60-openobex.rules to prevent error messages at boot.
    Thanks to Eric Hameleers.
  • a/sysvinit-scripts-2.0-noarch-26.txz
    rc.6: Change command variable to shutdown_command to avoid conflicting with
    a same-named variable in rc.networkmanager. Thanks to Antonio Maretzek.
    Added new script rc.cpufreq to set CPU frequency scaling.
    If executable, it will be run from rc.M.
  • ap/ghostscript-9.07-arm-3.txz
    Reverted back to ghostscript-9.07, since any newer version causes the GIMP
    ps plugin to crash when attempting to import a .ps or .eps file. Whatever
    is causing the problem happened between gs-9.07 and gs-9.09, and is probably
    also dependent on the libraries in use and perhaps the compiler, since some
    other distributions appear to be using the latest ghostscript without issues.
    If anyone can figure it out, hints are welcome. Meanwhile this gets
    everything working again.
  • ap/gutenprint-5.2.11-arm-2.txz
    Run cups-genppdupdate after installing. Thanks to Lukasz Wieczorek.
  • ap/slackpkg-2.82.0-noarch-18.txz
    Refreshed mirror list for ARM.
  • d/gcc-5.3.1-arm-3.txz
  • d/gcc-g++-5.3.1-arm-3.txz
  • d/gcc-gfortran-5.3.1-arm-3.txz
  • d/gcc-gnat-5.3.1-arm-3.txz
  • d/gcc-go-5.3.1-arm-3.txz
  • d/gcc-java-5.3.1-arm-3.txz
  • d/gcc-objc-5.3.1-arm-3.txz
  • xap/xine-lib-1.2.6-arm-6.txz
    Rebuilt against ffmpeg-2.8.5, which fixes two security issues by which a
    remote attacker may conduct a cross-origin attack and read arbitrary files
    on the system.
