Ready To Launch

When i saw the latest -current changelog, i just realized that Pat has decided to recompile all glibc packages with the most stable kernel available, 2.4.33 and 2.6.17.13. It does mean that Pat will definitely use that kernel version on the next Slackware version. In other words, Pat is now ready to launch the next major release of Slackware 11.0. Probably he's just waiting for the bug reports after the last changes, and if there isn't any, probably he will release it in the next one or two weeks (he should make the ISO and prepare everything including announcements, uploading the ISOs and wait for some public mirrors have mirrored all of the ISO for public consumptions).

Here are (hopefully) the last changelog:
Thu Sep 14 03:57:37 CDT 2006
a/glibc-solibs-2.3.6-i486-6.tgz: Recompiled.

a/glibc-zoneinfo-2.3.6-noarch-6.tgz: Upgraded to tzcode2006k and tzdata2006k. Added "ldconfig -r ." to install script. Thanks to Stuart Winter.

a/openssl-solibs-0.9.8b-i486-2.tgz: Patched an issue where it is possible to forge certain kinds of RSA signatures. The patch is used instead of an upgrade to openssl-0.9.8c as it was issued later with a corrected fix. For more information, see: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-4339
(* Security fix *)

a/udev-097-i486-10.tgz: If there's no udevd daemon, don't allow rc.udev to try to start. Thanks to Eugene Crosser.

d/pkgconfig-0.21-i486-3.tgz: Added {curly brackets} around PKG_CONFIG_PATH in /etc/profile.d/pkgconfig.*. Thanks to Rémy Pagniez.

l/glibc-2.3.6-i486-6.tgz: Recompiled against 2.4.33.3 and 2.6.17.13 headers. (these kernel versions are now "golden" for release)

l/glibc-profile-2.3.6-i486-6.tgz: Recompiled.

n/openssl-0.9.8b-i486-2.tgz: Patched an issue where it is possible to forge certain kinds of RSA signatures. The patch is used instead of an upgrade to openssl-0.9.8c as it was issued later with a corrected fix. For more information, see: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-4339
