Slackwarearm-14.0 ChangeLog (2012-08-10)

Fri Aug 10 19:25:57 UTC 2012

This is Slackware ARM 14.0 release candidate 1.

Help support the Slackware ARM project!

I really enjoy working on the ARM port of Slackware, and hope you enjoy using it!
Maintainance of the Slackware ARM port takes not only a lot of time, but also has
financial costs such as the on-going use of electricity, Internet hosting and
purchasing and maintainance of ARM hardware.

Once you find yourself enjoying using the ARM port of Slackware, please take a few
moments to show your appreciation by sponsoring through Paypal and 'ad-clicking'.

Thanks to those who have already made donations!


The mini root filesystem for -current has been updated.

All packages that can be (apart from a handful that won't build without significant
effort) are now compiled for armv5te.
  • a/gptfdisk-0.8.5-arm-1.tgz
    This is the updated version of gdisk, which got a name change upstream.
    It has added two new programs: cgfdisk, which is a menu driven GPT fdisk
    similar to cfdisk, and fixparts, a tool for repairing corrupted GPT tables.
    Thanks to Robert Easter for the heads-up on this.
  • l/icu4c-49.1.2-arm-1.tgz
    Thanks to Heinz Wiesinger.
  • l/js185-1.0.0-arm-1.tgz
    This had previously been incorrectly placed inside its own directory, so
    strictly counts as “Added” since it may not have been noticed before.
  • x/xf86-video-xgi-1.6.0git_2012_08_06-arm-1.tgz
    This package was removed a few batches ago because it would not compile
    against the new XOrg. I've pulled the latest GIT tree and applied the old
    set of patches. Just in time for the release! :-)
