  • l/pulseaudio-14.0-x86_64-3.txz
    Patched to support detecting elogind at compile time when built with meson.
    This restores PulseAudio exiting upon user logout.
    Thanks to LuckyCyborg for the bug report and patch.

  • l/harfbuzz-2.7.3-x86_64-2.txz
    Seems the –enable-introspection option didn't work, so rebuild with meson
    since that's probably what most of the developers do. Fixes blueman.
    Thanks to marav for the bug report.

Here are some updates to provide a little holiday cheer. The kernels are
rebuilt (yeah, we'll probably have new ones tomorrow but whatever) to build in
HWMON making NVMe temperature monitoring available, and there's also a massive
cleanup of polkit/dbus related packages to move most of the config files out
of /etc and not install them as .new. Local config files that override the
shipped ones may be placed in the directories in /etc to override the ones that
we ship. Thanks to Robby Workman for this!
None of the packages included in Slackware place any files in
/etc/polkit-1/rules.d/ or /etc/dbus-1/system.d/ any more, but there may be
third-party packages that still do. However, since Slackware's packages
originally installed these as .new files, the leftover configs will remain.
You'll probably want to take a look in those directories to clean out any
config files that you haven't modified yourself or that belong to packages that
aren't part of Slackware itself.
Hope everyone has a great day. :-)
