  • a/sysvinit-scripts-2.0-noarch-39.txz
    rc.M: Set the hostname returned by “hostname” with no arguments to be the
    FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name). Technically, it should work either way
    (and mostly does), but in practice there are a few things that either refuse
    to work (mostly commercial software), or require additional configuration if
    hostname returns the short hostname rather than the FQDN.
    rc.M: If rc.sendmail is not present and executable, try rc.postfix.
    rc.M: Run rc.dovecot if it is executable.
    rc.*: Don't source any init scripts.
  • a/util-linux-2.31-i586-2.txz
    Don't add hostname, domainname, dnsdomainname, nisdomainname, or ypdomainname
    to the util-linux package. These are provided by the new hostname package.
    Allow the eject utility to build.
  • ap/linuxdoc-tools-0.9.72-i586-4.txz
    Upgraded to DocBook XSL Stylesheets 1.79.2. Thanks to Stuart Winter.
    Applied patch to fix bus error with xsltproc. Thanks to ecd102 on LQ.
  • l/gtk+2-2.24.31-i586-3.txz
    Added more patches from upstream git. Thanks to Robby Workman.
  • n/cyrus-sasl-2.1.26-i586-2.txz
    Create /etc/sasl2 configuration directory.
  • n/inetd-1.79s-i586-10.txz
    Do not run inetd (rc.inetd is now shipped non-executable), or open any ports
    in inetd.conf by default.
  • n/wireless-tools-29-i486-10.txz
    Use ip instead of ifconfig. Thanks to Robby Workman.
  • extra/bash-completion/bash-completion-2.7-noarch-2.txz
    Applied some patches from upstream git, including one that unclobbers the
    rfkill completion from util-linux. Don't clobber mount and umount
    completions from util-linux. Thanks to ill323 on LQ for the heads-up.
