“Are we nearly there?”
  • a/aaa_elflibs-14.2-arm-16.txz
  • a/mkinitrd-1.4.8-arm-6.txz
    Fixed detecting USB partition in init, added proper USB storage modules
    to mkinitrd, and added missing USB keyboard modules to to fix entering LUKS password with some
    newer USB keyboards. Thanks to Eric Hameleers.
  • a/pkgtools-14.2-noarch-6.txz
    In removepkg, fix package name matching so that (for example) “removepkg s”
    will not remove a package whose name begins and ends with “s”.
    Thanks to Andreas Guldstrand.
    Added internationalized man pages.
    Thanks to Didier Spaier and the Slint translation team.
  • a/sysvinit-scripts-2.0-noarch-31.txz
    rc.S: In cryptsetup script, support supplying a password of “none”
    (interactive entry) for non-swap partitions to allow specifying additional
    options. Support a new option “discard” to pass the –allow-discards option
    to cryptsetup when unlocking a volume, which can potentially improve
    performance and longevity on some SSDs. Thanks to Nathan Wallace.
  • ap/lxc-2.0.1-arm-4.txz
    Merged rc.S changes.
  • ap/slackpkg-2.82.1-noarch-2.txz
    Added internationalized man pages.
    Thanks to Didier Spaier and the Slint translation team.
  • n/NetworkManager-1.2.2-arm-2.txz
    Install udev rules in the correct directory. Thanks to gmgf.
  • n/samba-4.4.4-arm-2.txz
    When installing, move any files existing in /etc/samba/private to
    /var/lib/samba/private, not just *.tdb files.
    Thanks to Maciej Goluchowski.
  • n/vsftpd-3.0.3-arm-3.txz
    Patched to handle NULL returns from recent glibc crypt(). Thanks to nixi.
  • xap/pidgin-2.10.12-arm-2.txz
    Use the much larger collection of SSL certs in /etc/ssl/certs rather
    than the ones that ship with Pidgin, otherwise certificates issued by
    Let's Encrypt (and others) cannot be verified. Thanks to Cesare.

  • n/libgpg-error-1.23-arm-1.txz
  • n/wget-1.18-arm-1.txz
    This version fixes a security vulnerability present in all old versions
    of wget. On a server redirect from HTTP to a FTP resource, wget would
    trust the HTTP server and use the name in the redirected URL as the
    destination filename. This behaviour was changed and now it works
    similarly as a redirect from HTTP to another HTTP resource so the original
    name is used as the destination file. To keep the previous behaviour the
    user must provide –trust-server-names.
    The vulnerability was discovered by Dawid Golunski and was reported by
    Beyond Security's SecuriTeam.
