Slackware-current ChangeLog (2016-03-25)

Fri Mar 25 20:43:59 UTC 2016

  • kde/ktouch-4.14.3-i586-3.txz
    Patched to fix performance issues. Thanks to Andrzej Telszewski.
  • n/NetworkManager-1.0.10-i586-5.txz
    Patched rc.networkmanager to only attempt to kill wpa_supplicant on shutdown
    using the first .pid found in /var/run or /run. Otherwise if those
    directories are symlinked or bind mounted together there will be a race
    condition that may result in an error message.
    I'm still not certain that rc.networkmanager should be messing with
    wpa_supplicant. What about cases where NetworkManager might be configured to
    *not* manage the wireless interfaces at all?
    Luckily, there is rarely any reason for stopping NetworkManager (outside of
    shutdown or reboot), or for restarting it.
