  • a/etc-15.0-i586-14.txz
    /etc/hosts: added IPv6 loopback addresses.
  • ap/hplip-3.20.6-i586-7.txz
    Fixed desktop file to show category and icon properly.
    Thanks to upnort and ArTourter.
  • d/git-2.30.1-i586-3.txz
    Make sure the bash-completion file is installed in the proper location.
    Thanks to Robby Workman.
  • n/network-scripts-15.0-noarch-13.txz
    Well, apparently there was a newer branch of this than the one that was
    sitting in my usual pending queue, so here it is. This also includes some
    additional documentation on the new features. NOTE: In order to use SLAAC
    to configure IPv6, you'll need to have USE_SLAAC[x]=“yes” for the interface
    in rc.inet1.conf. This is to ensure that nobody is surprised to find their
    machine fully exposed to the internet - better safe than sorry.
    Thanks to Darren “Tadgy” Austin and Robby Workman.
  • n/wireless_tools-30.pre9-i586-4.txz
    This package contains some updates to rc.wireless and rc.wireless.conf.
    Thanks to Darren “Tadgy” Austin.

  • n/bind-9.16.11-i586-3.txz
    Reverted to bind-9.16.11 plus a patch for CVE-2020-8625 to fix a
    regression in bind-9.16.12 that can cause the name server to crash.
    Thanks to nobodino.

  • xap/mozilla-firefox-78.7.1esr-i686-1.txz
    It looks like rebuilding Firefox with Rust 1.50.0 causes it to crash on
    HTML5 streams, so let's drop back to this build. 78.8.0 is coming soon
    and hopefully it'll fix this.

Here we go again… upgraded to glibc-2.33 and one last mass rebuild for
Slackware 15.0. The only packages upgraded in this batch are glibc and the
kernels - everything else is just a rebuild against the new glibc. Not
rebuilt in this batch: devs (best to just leave this alone), glibc-zoneinfo,
kernel-firmware, rust, linux-faqs, linux-howtos, aspell-en, mozilla-firefox,
mozilla-thunderbird, and seamonkey. There's a new Rust compiler but Firefox
and Thunderbird will need to be patched to use it, so we'll hold off on
those until they're ready for the new Rust either with patches or new
upstream releases. Until we have that and a few more scheduled upgrades I'm
not quite ready to call this beta yet, but you can call it 15.0-alpha1. :-)
Cheers!
