Slackware-13.0 ChangeLog (2008-11-20)

a/acpid-1.0.8-i486-2.tgz: Fixed a bug in the build script so that
/etc/acpi/ is chmoded executable. If you installed the
previous package, you should chmod 755 your /etc/acpi/
Thanks to Stuart Winter for pointing this out.

  • a/acpid-1.0.8-i486-1.tgz
    /etc/acpi/ will be installed as a .new with future upgrades,
    but since whatever version already installed on the system owns
    /etc/acpi/, it will still be overwritten one more time when
    this update is installed. If you've customized your script, be sure to back
    it up before upgrading.
    a/mkinitrd-1.3.2-i486-4.tgz: Fixed a bug where unless -F was the first option
    given, other command line options would not override the contents of
    /etc/mkinitrd.conf as documented in the man page.
    Thanks to David Somero for the patch.

    NOTE: These are some of the more important updates for X.Org. For the last
    several days we have been building and testing the very newest X updates, and
    it seems that the more intrusive updates are probably best left to develop
    until sometime after the coming -stable Slackware 12.2 release. Those will
    require a lot of testing and some things don't seem to be quite there yet.
    “X -configure” is hanging the console, DRI is not yet working on all the
    hardware tested, and the new xorg-server will render most existing xorg.conf
    files non-functional until several changes are made.
  • extra/slacktrack/slacktrack-2.01-noarch-1.tgz
