Slackwarearm-current ChangeLog (2018-07-27)

Fri Jul 27 08:08:08 UTC 2018

The mini root filesystem for -current has been updated:
  • a/shadow-4.2.1-arm-5.txz
    adduser: added “input” to additional user groups. Thanks to stormtracknole.
  • a/sysvinit-scripts-2.1-noarch-11.txz
    Handle remote (NFS, etc.) mounts with spaces in the name. Thanks to upnort.
  • l/libzip-1.5.1-arm-4.txz
    Make sure that the API-CHANGES file is included in the package documentation.
  • x/xorg-server-1.20.0-arm-3.txz
    Applied some patches that other distributions have been using for a while:
    Fix glamor so that the return value from glamor_fds_from_pixmap matches
    what's expected (thanks to Darth Vader for pointing out these patches).
    Autobind secondary GPUs to the master as output sink / offload source. This
    seems like a beneficial patch until/unless DEs start to handle this.
    For nvidia cards, if they are GeForce 8 or newer use the modesetting driver
    by default. Seems to be recommmended by upstream where they indicate that
    fixes going into nouveau are primarily to target older cards for legacy
    support and that the modesetting ddx is preferable for newer ones:
  • x/xorg-server-xephyr-1.20.0-arm-3.txz
  • x/xorg-server-xnest-1.20.0-arm-3.txz
  • x/xorg-server-xvfb-1.20.0-arm-3.txz
  • d/parallel-20180722-noarch-1.txz
  • d/subversion-1.10.2-arm-1.txz
  • l/libgphoto2-2.5.19-arm-1.txz
  • pasture/php-5.6.37-arm-1.txz
    Several security bugs have been fixed in this release, including:
    Int Overflow lead to Heap OverFlow in exif_thumbnail_extract of exif.c
    heap-buffer-overflow (READ of size 48) while reading exif data
    (* Security fix *)
