Slackware64-14.1 ChangeLog (2013-02-15)

  • a/elilo-3.14-x86_64-3.txz
    Include the x64 bootloader, not the Itanium one. Thanks to cendryon.
    We're also keeping the ia32 version, even though 32-bit UEFI is
    practically unknown. There might be some 32-bit EFI implementations
    out there, so it doesn't hurt to have it.
  • l/polkit-0.105-x86_64-4.txz
    Reverted a patch that set the members of the wheel group as the
    authorized administrators. On Slackware, root is the administrator
    and the wheel group is mostly unused. Thanks to GĂ©rard Monpontet.
  • xap/pidgin-2.10.7-x86_64-3.txz
    Fixed linking libirc.so with libsasl2.
    Added Makefile.in and Makefile to the patch, and applied it after
    running ./configure. Using autoreconf is not an option since most
    versions of Slackware aren't using the same libtools versions as the
    Pidgin developers are. Third times the charm?
    Thanks to Willy Sudiarto Raharjo.

  • xap/pidgin-2.10.7-x86_64-2.txz
    Fixed IRC support. When building with SASL support (new in 2.10.7), the
    IRC plugin needs to link against libsasl2, otherwise it will fail to load.
