Slackwarearm-14.0 ChangeLog (2012-07-20)

Fri Jul 20 07:36:22 UTC 2012

The mini root filesystem for -current has been updated.

Upgrade notes for this batch:

[1] We have switched to using openssl-1.0.1c, which changes the major number
for the crypto and ssl libraries from .0 to .1, meaning everything linked
with the previous version of openssl will need to be recompiled.

[2] To upgrade this batch, rather than logging in via SSH, I'd suggest logging in
from a serial line (easily achieved for most ARM devices) or telnet
(if you're on a secure LAN). This is to avoid any problems with SSH when you
upgrade OpenSSL.

Whether you perform a manual or automated upgrade, begin with:

# upgradepkg a/openssl-solibs*t?z n/openssl-*t?z

If you're using slackpkg to upgrade:
in /etc/slackpkg/slackpkg.conf, set: DOWNLOAD_ALL=on
# upgradepkg n/wget-*t?z
then continue using slackpkg as you would normally.

Once the upgrade is complete, reboot the system to bring it to a steady state.
  • l/wv2-0.4.2-arm-1.tgz
    Calligra doesn't require this (it bundles a forked version), nor does
    anything else in Slackware. It is unmaintained upstream and requires
    patching to compile with the recent glib2. Perhaps
    should take it over? If so, change all occurances of:
    #include <glib/*> to #include <glib.h>
  • x/intel-gpu-tools-1.0.2-arm-1.tgz
    This requires which is no longer provided by the
    x/libdrm package (as the package refuses to build Intel support on ARM).
