Slackwarearm-14.1 ChangeLog (2013-07-31)

Wed Jul 31 19:56:31 UTC 2013

Thanks to Robby Workman for updates on libnl*, dhcpcd, and wpa_supplicant.

In the Kernel and initial RAM disk file names, switch '-tegra' with '-armv7'
to support the new generic ARMv7 kernel.
  • a/gawk-4.1.0-arm-2.tgz
    Fixed –libdir. Thanks to Speek.
  • n/NetworkManager-
    Switched back to dhcpcd instead of dhclient as the default DHCP client in
    the NetworkManager.conf file. Either one will work, but it's probably
    better to use dhcpcd by default to avoid a nasty surprise for people who
    didn't install the dhcp package since they aren't running a DHCP server.
  • a/kernel_tegra-3.9.10-arm-1.tgz
    These packages have been replaced by a generic Kernel that supports a range of
    systems that have an ARMv7 or greater CPU. If you're a Tegra20 (principally a
    Compulab TrimSlice) user, you'll need to upgrade the packages like this:

    # upgradepkg kernel_tegra%kernel_armv7-3.10.4-arm-1.tgz
    # upgradepkg kernel-modules_tegra%kernel-modules-armv7-3.10.4_armv7-arm-1.tgz

    Also see section 5.0 ('Booting the Slackware ARM OS') of /INSTALL_TEGRA.TXT to
    adjust your U-Boot parameters to support the new 'armv7' name.
    Look for the U-Boot configuration line below the text:
    'Configure the U-Boot loader to load the Kernel and Initial RAM disk:'
    Essentially we've just switched the Kernel and initial RAM disk files from
    '-tegra' to '-armv7'.
    You will need to reboot your device into the U-Boot prompt in order to change
    the U-Boot configuration.
  • isolinux/uinitrd-tegra.img
    Replaced with uinitrd-armv7.img.
  • kernels/tegra
    Replaced with armv7.
