Slackwarearm-14.1 ChangeLog (2013-01-12)

Sat Jan 12 18:06:46 UTC 2013

Please note that the Mozilla suite of packages ('FireFox', 'Thunderbird' and
'Seamonkey') have been removed from Slackware ARM in this batch of updates.
This is due to these applications not supporting the ARMv5 platform. I cannot
build versions greater than 17.x, so I have removed them. I've considered the
ESR versions of Firefox but these just postpone the inevitable removal, since at
a later point in time, we'd still be trying to build a newer release of an app
that does not compile. The previous packages will remain in 'pasture', but be
aware that they are now not considered 'secure'.
  • d/binutils-
    Removed “/usr/bin/windres”.
    This was causing some builds to fail, as on ARM it fails with
    “cannot detect architecture”.
    Thanks to Richard Lapointe.
  • n/php-5.4.7-arm-2.tgz
    Corrected the permissions on /var/lib/php (chmod 770).
    Thanks to Hans de Bruin.
  • extra/autoconf213/autoconf-2.13-noarch-2.tgz
    Added versioned symlinks as some apps search for them explicitly.
    pasture/mozilla-firefox-17.0.1-armhfp-2.tgz: Moved to /pasture.
    pasture/mozilla-thunderbird-17.0-armhfp-3.tgz: Moved to /pasture.
    pasture/seamonkey-2.14.1-armhfp-2.tgz: Moved to /pasture.
    pasture/seamonkey-solibs-2.14.1-armhfp-2.tgz: Moved to /pasture.
