Slackware-current ChangeLog (2021-11-17)

Wed Nov 17 20:50:35 UTC 2021

Clearly we're going to have to tread more carefully for things to settle down,
so consider this RC2 and a much harder freeze. A test mass rebuild was done
here and there are no more “fails to build from source” remaining (thanks to
nobodino for some amazing and relentless testing).
  • ap/lxc-4.0.11-i586-3.txz
    Added some additional packages to the lxc-slackware template:
    bridge-utils, dbus, iptables, libnl3, libpcap.
    Thanks to linux91 for the hints.
  • l/python-docutils-0.17.1-i586-3.txz
    Revert to this version for now since 0.18 isn't compatible with Sphinx.
    Thanks to HQuest.
  • l/python-markdown-3.3.4-i586-3.txz
    Reverted this to fix the Samba build. The newer versions of Markdown require
    importlib_metadata and zipp, and adding these also fixes the build, but oddly
    the installed PKG-INFO shows version 0.0.0, which I suspect is more breakage
    going on with setuptools. I've tried rebuilding all other Python modules here
    to see if a more general breakage had crept in somehow, but those are the
    only two Python modules I've found that exhibit this issue, and I've found
    other similar reports (but no fixes). Markdown-3.3.4 seems to be the safe bet
    for now.
