  • extra/tigervnc/tigervnc-1.12.0-i586-2.txz
    Use the upstream vncserver script, patched to search in some additional
    locations for a startup script: $HOME/.vnc/xstartup, $HOME/.xinitrc, and
    /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.
    Add a symlink for vncserver in the old location (/usr/bin/vncserver).
    Thanks to 0XBF.

  • ap/mariadb-10.5.13-i586-2.txz
    Install /etc/security/user_map.conf as /etc/security/user_map.conf.new to
    protect it from being overwritten by future upgrades.
    Thanks to Markus Wiesner.
  • d/python3-3.9.9-i586-2.txz
    Do not patch posix_user platlib to use $HOME/.local/lib64 on 64-bit - use
    $HOME/.local/lib for all platforms. This avoids a warning from pip about the
    install location not matching between distutils and sysconfig. Note that this
    might require already installed modules to be moved from $HOME/.local/lib64
    to $HOME/.local/lib (or they could be removed and then reinstalled).
    At first this seemed to be a non-optimal solution for this issue, but other
    distributions are taking this same approach and it appears that the
    posix_user platlib setting has always been ignored until recently.
    If this causes any unexpected issues, let me know.
    Thanks to redneonglow and alijkl.

  • l/python-setuptools_scm-6.3.2-i586-1.txz
    This is needed when building some Python modules to correctly parse their
    metadata, as recently discovered with importlib_metadata and zipp. While
    we'll stick to the version of Markdown that we've got, it seems like a good
    idea to get this in before the release to help prevent people from running
    into similar “version 0.0.0” issues with other Python modules.
    Thanks to USUARIONUEVO.
  • l/python-tomli-1.2.2-i586-1.txz
    This is needed by setuptools_scm. Also, the SlackBuild contains a nice
    example of using a setup.py shim to setuptools for a Python module that
    only contains pyproject.toml and not setup.py.
    Thanks to Heinz Wiesinger.

Clearly we're going to have to tread more carefully for things to settle down,
so consider this RC2 and a much harder freeze. A test mass rebuild was done
here and there are no more “fails to build from source” remaining (thanks to
nobodino for some amazing and relentless testing).

  • ap/lxc-4.0.11-i586-3.txz
    Added some additional packages to the lxc-slackware template:
    bridge-utils, dbus, iptables, libnl3, libpcap.
    Thanks to linux91 for the hints.
  • l/python-docutils-0.17.1-i586-3.txz
    Revert to this version for now since 0.18 isn't compatible with Sphinx.
    Thanks to HQuest.
  • l/python-markdown-3.3.4-i586-3.txz
    Reverted this to fix the Samba build. The newer versions of Markdown require
    importlib_metadata and zipp, and adding these also fixes the build, but oddly
    the installed PKG-INFO shows version 0.0.0, which I suspect is more breakage
    going on with setuptools. I've tried rebuilding all other Python modules here
    to see if a more general breakage had crept in somehow, but those are the
    only two Python modules I've found that exhibit this issue, and I've found
    other similar reports (but no fixes). Markdown-3.3.4 seems to be the safe bet
    for now.

  • d/automake-1.16.2-noarch-4.txz
    The GNU toolchain is making it increasingly impossible to use our usual
    “${ARCH}-slackware-linux” host, erroring out with a host mismatch on at
    least GTK+2. So, we'll drop back to this version of automake for now,
    with a fix applied for detecting Python 3.10. More than likely we'll be
    changing the host to “${ARCH}-slackware-linux-gnu” to satisfy upstream,
    but that will have to wait for the next devel cycle.
  • d/rust-1.55.0-i686-2.txz
    Recompiled against llvm-13.0.0.
  • kde/kdevelop-5.6.2-i586-6.txz
    Recompiled against llvm-13.0.0.
  • kde/plasma-workspace-5.23.0-i586-2.txz
    Applied upstream patch:
    [PATCH] sddm-theme: fix missing password field on “Other” page.
    Thanks to USUARIONUEVO and LuckyCyborg.

  • kde/kdev-python-5.6.2-i586-3.txz
    Due to the removal of the old parser from Python 3.10, this is no longer
    compatible. We'll keep an eye on upstream to see if this changes, though.

  • n/httpd-2.4.51-i586-1.txz
    SECURITY: CVE-2021-42013: Path Traversal and Remote Code
    Execution in Apache HTTP Server 2.4.49 and 2.4.50 (incomplete
    fix of CVE-2021-41773) (cve.mitre.org)
    It was found that the fix for CVE-2021-41773 in Apache HTTP
    Server 2.4.50 was insufficient. An attacker could use a path
    traversal attack to map URLs to files outside the directories
    configured by Alias-like directives.
    If files outside of these directories are not protected by the
    usual default configuration “require all denied”, these requests
    can succeed. If CGI scripts are also enabled for these aliased
    pathes, this could allow for remote code execution.
    This issue only affects Apache 2.4.49 and Apache 2.4.50 and not
    earlier versions.

    Fix paths in kde.{csh,sh}. Thanks to marco70.
    Since kdesu and kxmlgui are looking in /usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX}/kf5 for
    some reason, let's just link that location to libexec/kf5 to make things
    work again. Also, I'm not sure why these things are in this particular
    package, but I guess they had to go somewhere.

Hey folks, sorry about all the bandwidth rebuilding Plasma, but there's no
good reason to specify a libexec dir that's different from upsteam's default,
so we've removed that option to let everything fall into the default location.
Only a couple dozen packages seemed to be affected, but it's just safer to
recompile all of them just to be sure. Thanks to fulalas.

  • n/bind-9.16.21-i586-3.txz
    Clean this up a little more… for consistency, make all three variables
    set in /etc/default/named start with NAMED_. Likewise, make sure that all
    uses of them in rc.bind start with NAMED_ (fixes a mismatch discovered by
    Nobby6). For anyone wishing to run BIND as root, it seems to accept -u root
    just fine, but if you really don't want a -u option, just set NAMED_OPTIONS
    to “ ” to avoid triggering the fallback.

    Patched to shut down dhcpcd gracefully, and restored dhcpcd as the default
    client when using NetworkManager on Slackware. In this case I'll swim
    upstream if it means better security. Who knows what your DHCP server might
    attempt when it comes to public WiFi? :-)
    Thanks to Roy Marples and marav.

    Patched with upstream commit to allow using this icon theme with Xfce.
  • n/NetworkManager-1.32.10-i586-3.txz
    Switch to dhcp=internal to avoid problems swimming upstream.
    For those looking for a fix to continue using dhcpcd, a PRIVSEP build
    variable was added to the SlackBuild, and you may produce a fully
    NetworkManager compatible dhcpcd package with this command:
    PRIVSEP=no ./dhcpcd.SlackBuild
    Privilege separation remains the dhcpcd package default as we don't want
    to weaken security for those using rc.inet1 along with dhcpcd.
    Some additional comments about this were added to 00-dhcp-client.conf
    mentioning this and the workaround of killing dhcpcd manually when
    resuming with the stock dhcpcd package.
