The mini root filesystem for -current has been updated:
ftp://ftp.arm.slackware.com/slackwarearm/slackwarearm-devtools/minirootfs/
  • a/gpm-1.20.7-arm-3.txz
    setup.mouse: fix USB mouse autodection. Thanks to Didier Spaier.
  • a/lzip-1.20-arm-2.txz
    Don't move lzip to /bin.
    Don't move plzip to /bin.
  • a/lzlib-1.10-arm-2.txz
    Let the library stay in /usr/lib{,64}. There's not much point in moving it
    since plzip will require libstdc++.so in /usr/lib{,64}, and we're not going
    to move that one. And realistically, there's also not much point in worrying
    about whether the package tools will work with /usr unavailable.
  • a/pkgtools-15.0-noarch-2.txz
    Use tar-1.30. Thanks to gnashley and ruario for the help.
    Change .tlz to mean .tar.lz. We never really used the previous definition
    (which was tar.lzma), and .lz is a probably a better format than xz or lzma.
    Reference: https://www.nongnu.org/lzip/xz_inadequate.html
    For xz/lzip based packages, support multithreaded compression/decompression.
    Thanks to Erik Jan Tromp for assistance and advice with testing the changes
    for lzip and thread support, as well for as getting a bug in lzlib/plzip
    fixed upstream.
    Support extended attributes and POSIX ACLs in packages.
    installpkg: support multiple threads for xz. Thanks to ivandi.
    Default threads for plzip is now equal to the number of CPU threads on
    the system rather than the number of physical cores. Default number of
    threads on xz is set to 2, to avoid a memory allocation problem when
    using too many threads on 32-bit. Not that it matters… they still
    haven't implemented multi-threaded xz decompression.
    If a package was not made with makepkg, filter the filelist
    through sed on the way to /var/log/packages/ to try to clean it up.
    makepkg: refactored setting compression type by requested extension.
    Use find and sed instead of a tar transform. Thanks to Seb.
  • a/plzip-1.7-arm-2.txz
    Don't move plzip to /bin.
  • a/sysvinit-scripts-2.1-noarch-2.txz
    rc.{6,K}: Use -M option with fuser. Thanks to Markus Wiesner.
  • n/network-scripts-15.0-noarch-3.txz
    rc.inet1: set the broadcast address, and flush the ip address from interfaces
    when shutting them down. Thanks to Markus Wiesner.
    netconfig: don't write hostname to NetworkManager.conf.
    Thanks to Andrzej Telszewski.
