More Updates

Sorry for being late about the latest changing in -Current. I was out of town attending my cousin's wedding party, so things got stucked while i'm out of Internet access and my busy schedule there. Here's the latest -Current changelog which is getting interesting:
Sun Dec 7 23:14:42 CST 2008
n/network-scripts-12.2-noarch-4.tgz: Patched rc.inet1 to filter output from "modprobe -c" that begins with #, preventing spurious error messages.
Thanks to Darrell Anderson.

Sun Dec 7 20:51:39 CST 2008
kde/kdeadmin-3.5.10-i486-4.tgz: Updated the knetworkconf patch to handle the domain name better, and to retain the correct permissions on rc.samba.
Thanks to Niels Horn for the improvements.

l/dbus-1.2.6-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to dbus-1.2.6.

l/dbus-glib-0.78-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to dbus-glib-0.78.

l/hal-0.5.11-i486-3.tgz: Modified hal.conf to use the plugdev group correctly.

l/libgphoto2-2.4.3-i486-3.tgz: Added README.jl2005a. Although the driver for this proprietary chipset is not built by default, the README is useful to let people know why that is (and perhaps as a warning to steer clear of these cameras unless you happen to be an expert in reverse engineering compression formats).

Sun Dec 7 01:37:48 CST 2008
a/hdparm-9.3-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to hdparm-9.3.

ap/man-pages-3.15-noarch-1.tgz: Upgraded to man-pages-3.15.

kde/kdeadmin-3.5.10-i486-3.tgz: Patched knetworkconf (KDE Control Center Network Settings) to be able to configure network interfaces. Previously, knetworkconf would say that the system was not supported and refuse to work since it considered only up to Slackware 10.2 supported. By simply adding Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, and 12.2 to the supported version list, this utility works again. However, it can strip commented out options from the rc.inet1.conf config file, and can put options into the file in a confusing order, so it is still not the optimal way to configure a network. Still, it's better to have this working. Thanks to Niels Horn for writing the patch, and Darrell Anderson for letting me know about it.

l/libgphoto2-2.4.3-i486-2.tgz: Restore README files for camera libraries that were not previously included. A pointer to the API documentation has also been added to the docs directory. Thanks to Theodore Kilgore for pointing out the usefulness of these documentation files to end users.

n/network-scripts-12.2-noarch-3.tgz: Allow rc.inet1.conf to override MAXNICS value in rc.inet1. Thanks to Eric Hameleers.
Added rc.inet1.8 and rc.inet1.conf.5 manpages. Thanks to Eric Hameleers.
Removed duplicated code in rc.inet1 default case. Thanks to Collin Baillie.

xap/pidgin-2.5.2-i486-3.tgz: Patched to accept certificates signed with rsa-md5. Other SSL libraries accept this, so GnuTLS should as well.

extra/wicd/wicd-1.5.6-noarch-2.tgz: Change usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/55wicd to chmod 644 by default to avoid interference with suspend.
