Quick Fix

Yesterday i wrote an email to Patrick Volkerding about a problem after i upgraded my sysvinit-scripts package which contains a new call to wait for I/O to finish their job and today, Pat has released an upgrade to the package by removing it (back to the old nature) and also released a security fix for libpng library. This is what i like about Slackware. When concerning about security and user's problems, Pat reacts very fast so the impact could be minimized. Those who haven't upgraded the sysvinit-script package before should download the latest build or you will have the same problem as i did yesterday and ended up booting into single user mode to fix it.
