  • a/etc-15.0-i586-9.txz
    Added support for /etc/ Thanks to Qury.
  • a/pkgtools-15.0-noarch-22.txz
    installpkg: prevent noise from the “stray cat” if tar hands it a broken
    pipe. Thanks to ivandi.
    Also (in the comments) provide a possibly better but untested solution.
    Thanks to SeB.
  • a/sysvinit-2.90-i586-2.txz
    sysvinit-2.90 added an undocumented feature that tries to spawn agetty
    if it sees console= in the kernel command line. Avoiding the debate about
    whether this code belongs in init at all, at least such a change should
    be documented, and probably made opt-in. This patch disables the new
    behavior unless “sysvinit_agetty” is also seen in the kernel command line.
    It seems like this might have been something added for Hurd, and it might
    be wise to stick to what we've got rather than following upstream on this
    particular package. If anyone notices any other odd behavior, please let
    me know. Thanks to shastah.
  • a/sysvinit-scripts-2.1-noarch-19.txz
    When checking for intel_pstate, direct the stderr to /dev/null in case
    the file doesn't exist in /sys. Thanks to ivandi.
    Allow forcing an option by editing /etc/default/cpufreq.
  • d/binutils-2.31.1-i586-2.txz
    elf.c (_bfd_elf_get_symbol_version_string): Return _(“<corrupt>”) for
    corrupt symbol version info.
    elflink.c (bfd_elf_record_link_assignment): Always clear h→verinfo.verdef
    when overriding a dynamic definition.
    Thanks to Michael Short for pointing out the upstream patches.
  • d/llvm-6.0.1-i586-2.txz
    Recompiled with -DCLANG_BUILD_SHARED_LIBS=ON to fix issues when multiple
    OpenCL drivers are installed. Thanks to Heinz Wiesinger.
  • n/netatalk-3.1.11-i586-2.txz
    rc.atalk: fixed errors in status output. Thanks to marav.
