Slackwarearm-current ChangeLog (2019-09-16)

Mon Sep 16 08:08:08 UTC 2019


The mini root filesystem has been updated:
ftp://ftp.arm.slackware.com/slackwarearm/slackwarearm-devtools/minirootfs/slack-current-miniroot_16Sep19.tar.xz

I suggest a reboot after this update, as the glibc upgrade may have caused some
services (inetd, in my case) to have difficulty with glibc's 'getpwnam'
function.

Therefore, you have a new Kernel! :-)
  • a/mkinitrd-1.4.11-arm-2.txz
    Add libargon2 and libgcc_s for cryptsetup LUKS2 support.
    Add jfs (thanks to gus3 on LQ) and xfs (thanks to klipkyle on LQ) repair
    tools to initrd if those filesystems are used.
    Support PARTUUID in mkinitrd_command_generator.sh (thanks to luvr on LQ).
    Fixes and enhancements to docs suggested on LQ.
    Thanks to Robby Workman.
