Slackware 14.1 RC 3: Last Call

This is your last call for users who wanted to test Slackware 14.1. We are now at RC 3. This hopefully the last RC before the final Slackware 14.1 gets released by November. Here's the recap of changes:
  • grub is rebuilt to terminate EFI several times to solve buggy UEFI implementations
  • lilo is rebuilt to test for Windows partition better and add commented "compact" in liloconfig
  • sysvinit-scripts is rebuilt to check for devtmpfs and remove obsolete reference to rc.optimal-symlink in rc.M
  • pm-utils is rebuilt to  set all the hooks in the power.d directory to non-executable
  • poppler is upgraded to 0.24.3
  • gnutls is upgraded to 3.1.5
  • xine-ui is upgraded to 0.99.7
  • isolinux and usb-and-pxe-installer are rebuilt to not list the USB installer partitions in the FAT/NTFS partition menu
