Slackware64-14.2 ChangeLog (2016-02-11)

Thu Feb 11 21:56:21 UTC 2016

  • a/sysvinit-scripts-2.0-noarch-29.txz
    rc.S: Avoid mounting /dev/shm twice.
    Thanks to Andrzej Telszewski and GazL.
    rc.6, rc.K: Match 'type nfs ' rather than 'type nfs' to avoid false hits
    (and error messages) from matching nfsd pseudo-filesystems.
    Thanks to Jonathan Woithe.
  • n/cifs-utils-6.4-x86_64-2.txz
    Recompiled against libcap-ng. Now mount.cifs will work for normal users
    if setuid root. By default, mount.cifs remains NOT setuid root, though.
  • ap/hplip-3.16.2-x86_64-1.txz
  • ap/htop-2.0.0-x86_64-1.txz
  • l/freetype-2.6.3-x86_64-1.txz
  • x/pixman-0.34.0-x86_64-1.txz
  • x/xf86-video-r128-6.10.1-x86_64-1.txz
  • x/xorg-server-1.18.1-x86_64-1.txz
  • x/xorg-server-xephyr-1.18.1-x86_64-1.txz
  • x/xorg-server-xnest-1.18.1-x86_64-1.txz
  • x/xorg-server-xvfb-1.18.1-x86_64-1.txz
  • xap/mozilla-firefox-44.0.2-x86_64-1.txz
    This release contains security fixes and improvements.
    For more information, see:
    (* Security fix *)
  • l/libcap-ng-0.7.7-x86_64-1.txz
    This is needed by mount.cifs in order to support making it setuid so that
    normal users can mount remote CIFS partitions. And it is expected that
    other programs will begin to use it in preference to the older libcap.
