Little Updates But Worthed

Pat has changed his -current changelog once again to reflect new changes on the next Slackware system and it seems that it has become more mature and stable for the next version. Most bugs report has been fixed and he are still waiting for more fixes before the next major version released.

Here are the latest changelog:
Tue Sep 12 06:29:32 CDT 2006
a/sysvinit-2.84-i486-67.tgz: Sleep 3 seconds before mounting non-root partitions. This was a sleep that I'd removed earlier in the devel cycle to see what it would break (if anything), and the answer is some external hard drives that take a couple seconds to hotplug. Thanks to Fabio Busatto.
In rc.M, restart udevd when returning from single user mode. Thanks to James Michael Fultz. Patched initscript.5 man page to show proper /sbin/initscript path. Thanks to Robby Workman.
Found another assumption that the kernel has hotplug support in the rc.udev stop function. Thanks again to Gary Hawco for the original bug report.

a/udev-097-i486-9.tgz: Uncommented dmsetup rule for LVM2 -- it doesn't seem to hurt anything. Thanks to Dex Filmore.

ap/diffutils-2.8.1-i486-3.tgz: Fixed sdiff.1 man page. Thanks to James Michael Fultz.

kde/amarok-1.4.3-i486-3.tgz: Recompiled against new libmtp.

l/libmtp-0.0.18-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to libmtp-0.0.18.

l/libwpd-0.8.6-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to libwpd-0.8.6. Thanks to Eugene C. for the CXXFLAGS advice.

n/imapd-4.64-i486-3.tgz: Added missing md5.txt mentioned in the imapd man page, plus a note about additional (large) documentation in the sources. The docs directory was also moved to /usr/doc/imapd4.64. Thanks to Mark Flacy for reminding me about this one.

n/rdesktop-1.4.1-i486-1.tgz: Added rdesktop-1.4.1. Yes, we're in release candidates, but if this doesn't work at least it is small. :-) I've had many, many requests, and it is needed by krdc, so that's my rationale. Oh -- and thanks to everyone for positive feedback on libgpod. I also fixed the typo in my request for feedback below. I hope that doesn't break too many ChangeLog parsing scripts...

n/stunnel-4.17-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to stunnel-4.17. Thanks to Cal Peake for the notice.
