Thu Mar 6 03:13:15 CST 2008
a/usbutils-0.73-i486-2.tgz: Don't compress usb.ids (this breaks HAL).
Thanks to Robby Workman for the report.

l/glib2-2.14.6-i486-2.tgz: Added /etc/profile.d/ scripts so that GTK+ will use the $LANG variable instead of forcing UTF-8. Thanks to Anton Dobkin.

n/rsync-3.0.0-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to rsync-3.0.0.

x/libXext-1.0.4-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to libXext-1.0.4.

x/xf86-video-mga-1.4.8-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to xf86-video-mga-1.4.8.

extra/grub/grub-0.97-i486-4.tgz: Patched to handle the new 256 byte ext2/ext3 inode size. Thanks to Michael Wagner for the patch.

extra/ham/: Removed, since this hasn't really seen any changes in a couple of years, and packet radio has mostly become an obscure art form (if that wasn't what it always was ;-). Anyway, I'm hoping someone interested in packet radio will appear to maintain these on Slackbuilds.org. Meanwhile, thanks to Arno Verhoeven for his years of work on these packages.
