Mon Feb 15 15:16:17 UTC 2016


This is Slackware ARM v14.2, beta 2.1

Thanks for the feedback on the Slackware ARM LQ forum:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-arm-108/
  • a/procps-ng-3.3.10-arm-3.txz
    Restored FROM field in w.
  • a/splitvt-1.6.5-arm-4.txz
    Fixed documentation paths. Thanks to Wiser Slacker on LQ.
  • a/sysvinit-scripts-2.0-noarch-27.txz
    rc.S: Avoid mounting /dev/shm twice.
    Thanks to Andrzej Telszewski and GazL.
    rc.6, rc.K: Match 'type nfs ' rather than 'type nfs' to avoid false hits
    (and error messages) from matching nfsd pseudo-filesystems.
    Thanks to Jonathan Woithe.
  • d/cvs-1.11.23-arm-4.txz
    Fixed documentation paths. Thanks to Wiser Slacker on LQ.
  • l/freetype-2.6.3-arm-2.txz
    No longer linking against harfbuzz. This was what broke xterm and MPlayer amongst
    others. I note that Debian and Fedora do not build against harfbuzz either. If this
    is an issue, let me know and provide the fix :-)
  • l/harfbuzz-1.1.3-arm-2.txz
  • n/cifs-utils-6.4-arm-2.txz
    Recompiled against libcap-ng. Now mount.cifs will work for normal users
    if setuid root. By default, mount.cifs remains NOT setuid root, though.
  • tcl/tcl-8.6.4-arm-4.txz
    Fixed documentation paths. Thanks to Wiser Slacker on LQ.
  • x/fontconfig-2.11.1-arm-3.txz
  • x/xf86-video-armsoc-1.4.0-arm-3.txz
  • x/xf86-video-fbdev-0.4.4-arm-9.txz
  • x/xf86-video-fbturbo-199.f9a6ed7-arm-2.txz
  • x/xf86-video-opentegra-1.5158a25-arm-3.txz
  • x/xf86-video-xgi-1.6.0git_2012_08_06-arm-4.txz
  • x/xterm-322-arm-2.txz
    Rebuilt to link against freetype. Thanks to lems on LQ for the report.
  • xap/MPlayer-20160125-arm-2.txz
    Fixed build script to abort on a failed build rather than build a mostly
    empty package. Thanks to Linux.tar.gz on LQ for the report.
  • extra/wicd/wicd-1.7.4-arm-2.txz
    Added patch to fix bug in displaying the bitrate in the curses version. This
    was not fixed in wicd-1.7.4. Thanks to Rick Miles for the report.
  • ap/htop-2.0.0-arm-1.txz
  • x/pixman-0.34.0-arm-1.txz
  • x/xf86-video-r128-6.10.1-arm-1.txz
  • x/xorg-server-1.18.1-arm-1.txz
  • x/xorg-server-xephyr-1.18.1-arm-1.txz
  • x/xorg-server-xnest-1.18.1-arm-1.txz
  • x/xorg-server-xvfb-1.18.1-arm-1.txz
  • l/libcap-ng-0.7.7-arm-1.txz
    This is needed by mount.cifs in order to support making it setuid so that
    normal users can mount remote CIFS partitions. And it is expected that
    other programs will begin to use it in preference to the older libcap.
