Security Update: Ghostscript

The ghostscript package has been patched to fix several security problems on -Current. It is released on the same day here in Indonesia (Tuesday evening), but it's 39 minutes past midnight at Pat's place. Have a good sleep after releasing this package wave

Anyway, here's the security advisory today:
Tue Jun 30 00:39:54 CDT 2009
ap/ghostscript-8.64-i486-2.txz: Rebuilt.
Patched various problems with ghostscript that could lead to a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code when processing a malicious or malformed file.

Again, Yahoo Fixes

Two packages are upgraded to fix the Yahoo protocols problems after they decided to upgraded their protocols. Lots of IM client running under Linux are affected, so hopefully this two updates on kdenetwork and pidgin can solve the problem.

Here are the updates:
Mon Jun 29 14:44:25 CDT 2009
kde/kdenetwork-4.2.4-i486-2.txz: Rebuilt.
Patched to fix Yahoo! protocol. Thanks to Matt Rogers.

Another Pidgin Release

Another Pidgin release to fix Yahoo problem and this time, it includes other fixes for other protocols as well. As in Yahoo protocol, the default pager server will now be converted to scsa.msg.yahoo.com by default if the user emptied the field or it's still using the old scs.msg.yahoo.com. This, by default will ease user in migration process.

Refer to the changelog here.

We should wait until the package arrived in -Current which i think won't be long big grin

Development and KDE Updates

It seems that Pat really does care about development tools and KDE apps. Today's updates are all about development tools and also KDE apps, which are located under d/ and kde/ directory. Have fun with it big grin

Here's the latest -Current directory:

Indonesian SlackBasics is Finished

Just now, i have committed the last file which should be translated on SlackBasics project. This commit marks the end of translation project of SlackBasics in Indonesian language and the next step will be a review on the translations before i publish the zip file containing the HTML (single), HTML (split) and PDF format of the translations.

I hope i can finish this review before July and the final results can be published on July. Please have a look on the translations on SlackBasics project (you must use SVN to checkout the translations).

The last revision has been uploaded to Indonesian Slackware Community Site too.

Enjoy the Indonesian version of SlackBasics cool

Signature Problem Fixed

Actually it's not Slackware's bug, but since i used Slackware, it would be great idea to post it here, just in case other people might experienced this too.

I'm using Firefox and FireGPG extension to sign all my mails. The problem was that i always had a wrong signature every time i sign my message. This happened since few months ago when i changed the GnuPG version from gpg 1.x into gpg 2.x. I set the gpg path in FireGPG preference dialog into /usr/bin/gpg2 which is the executable file for GnuPG 2.x. In fact, this is wrong. Today i discovered, that it should be /usr/bin/gpg and we should make a symlink on /usr/bin/gpg to point to /usr/bin/gpg2 and now it is working normally again.

The latest version of FireGPG inspired me to solve this bug because i thought it was FireGPG's bug blushing

Oh yeah, i have changed my digest algorithm to SHA512 instead of staying with SHA1 which is no longer recommended by some people. SHA512 is quite strong for now and for years from now, so i'm using it on my email.

You can get my public key here or here or by looking at public keyserver at PGP Global Directory.

More Slackware64 Mirrors

Up to yesterday, only Slackware 32 bits are supported on mirrors listed on Indonesian Slackware Community Site, but today, Ozzie has finally finished syncronizing the Slackware64 repository on the mirrors listed there, so we now have more Slackware64 mirrors besides Kambing and many other local mirrors.

There are three additional mirrors for Slackware64:
HTTP:
  • http://mirror.slackware-id.org/pub/slackware64-current/
  • http://slackware.linux.or.id/pub/slackware/slackware64-current/
  • http://slackware.vip.net.id/pub/slackware64-current/
FTP:

Enjoy cool

Pidgin Upgraded

This fixes the Yahoo protocol plugin. Thanks to Willy Sudiarto Raharjo for letting us know about the problem and the new Pidgin release.

New Pidgin to Fix Yahoo Login Problem

New version of Pidgin which brings fixes for Yahoo login problem has been released. I think it will be out in the -Current shortly since i think many users are still using Pidgin for their IM client application (including me).

For those who can't be patient, grab the SlackBuild script and compile by yourself laughing

Packages to be Tested

Two new packages have arrived on /testing directory. It's bash and mesa. Like i said. Newer version of Mesa has just been released yesterday, but it will require more intensive testing, so for now, the current version of mesa being used is still 7.4.1 while 7.4.3 is placed on /testing for a while to make sure that it has been tested by public and then it will be moved to the proper place if it qualifies.

As for BASH, it's still the same. Slackware still actively following the progress of BASH, but the default version hasn't change from the last release. Me myself has been using 3.2.048 and found no problem on my daily usage, but i'm not sure of upgrading to 4.0.024 for now.

Here's the latest -Current changelog:
Sat Jun 20 12:49:02 CDT 2009
testing/packages/bash-4.0.024-i486-1.txz: Upgraded.

testing/packages/mesa-7.4.3-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.

Mesa Rebuilt

Missing a components make Mesa gets rebuilt. It's the only changes today, so very short on the Changelog. Mesa 7.4.3 has been released today, so we should wait until Pat and the team tested it internally before releasing it to public. The newer version should help fixing the regression found on 7.4.2 which caused Slackware crew decided to downgrade to 7.4.1.

Here's the -Current changelog:
Sat Jun 20 00:10:23 CDT 2009
x/mesa-7.4.1-i486-2.txz: Rebuilt. The software rasterizer was missing again. Thanks to Mark Post for catching the omission.

Updated SlackBasics Project

I have updated the SlackBasics project on Indonesian Slackware Community Site so it is now synced with the ongoing development happened on Google Code.

Why on earth do we have two repositories? The first reason is speed. The Indonesian Slackware Community Site is located in Indonesia, which provides faster speed for local access. The second reason is that the Google Code server is more suitable for development, not for public access (even though it's still possible).

Anyways, i have uploaded the single html, split html, and the PDF version on the site. It's not yet finished, but we are close to that.

Check it out and give your remarks blushing

Security Updates: Ruby, Libpng

Two security updates are released today: Ruby and Libpng. There has been a reverted package as well. Mesa is downgraded to 7.4.1 due to regression found on 7.4.2 which was upgraded few days ago. While i don't find this regression on my system, many people have reported this and Pat and the team has decided to switch back to 7.4.1 which has no problem so far. The 7.4.2 version are moved to /testing.

Also, Pat has decided to include the old K3B program in extra in case the newer K3B is not yet stable for daily usage. It's a good choice as K3B isn't quite mature yet with KDE 4.

Here's the latest -Current changelog
Fri Jun 19 18:22:20 CDT 2009
d/ruby-1.8.7_p174-i486-1.txz: Upgraded.
This fixes a denial of service issue caused by the BigDecimal method handling large input values improperly that may allow attackers to crash the interpreter. The issue affects most Rails applications.
For more information, see:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1904
(* Security fix *)

l/libpng-1.2.37-i486-1.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes a possible security issue. Jeff Phillips discovered an uninitialized-memory-read bug affecting interlaced images that may have security implications.
For more information, see:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-2042
(* Security fix *)

x/mesa-7.4.1-i486-1.txz: Upgraded.
Well, actually more like "switched", or "reverted". After many hours trying to track down the reason for reported instability with X and compositing (such as crashes when adjusting advanced desktop settings in KDE), we've found that it seems to happen only with MesaLib 7.4.2. Rather than trying to cherry-pick changes between 7.4.1 and 7.4.2, we've switched to shipping 7.4.1 in the main tree, and have not run into any such problems since making the switch. If people want to continue testing 7.4.2, we've moved it into /testing. Let us know if you run into any problems with 7.4.1 that are fixed with 7.4.2, and we'll take a look at individual diffs.

extra/kde3-compat/k3b3-1.0.5-i486-opt1.txz: Added.
In case the KDE4 version of k3b is not stable, this KDE3 version may be used along with the KDE3 compatibility packages in extra/kde3-compat/.

testing/packages/mesa-7.4.2-i486-2.txz: Moved to /testing due to apparent regressions.

Pidgin Login Problem

In the last two days, there has been a lot of users complaining that Pidgin can't connect to Yahoo protocol. It happened only in Pidgin while Kopete and many other clients worked.

To solve this problem, try to edit your Yahoo account, and change the Pager Server into cs101.msg.mud.yahoo.com. I tried this at home and it worked cool

Thanks to Setiajie who have gave this instructions on the list.

Upgrading to Latest -Current

I have successfully upgraded three systems to the latest -Current (every computer i have has been running -Current all the time). The first computer i upgraded was my workstation at the office. The second one was my desktop, and the last one was my laptop. I had no major problem while upgrading my workstation, but i do have some problems with my desktop and laptop.

The problem lies on NVidia driver which should be rebuilt after the XOrg updates. Currently i'm using a custom kernel which i compiled it myself, but the kernel header that is on the system is using Slackware-Current's kernel header, so the the installation failed. I have tried to set SYSOUT and SYSSRC environment variable as told by the error messages, but no luck. In the end, i compiled a new kernel and finally the problem dissappeared.

Besides this driver, nothing major comes in my way. I agree with Pat on this one. KDE is just keep getting better, but not only KDE. So does Slackware big grin

By the way, i'm still waiting for an update to Mozilla Firefox. The latest version has quite some important fixes related to security and it should be delivered today (i hope).

All in One Post

Sorry for the delay. I had trouble finding good Internet connection at Manado and i forgot that my phone is capable of doing it, but unfortunately, i have to use different OS since the application is only for specific platform.

OK, here's the highlight from the last changelog:
- KDE gets upgraded to KDe 4.2.4
- XOrg has been upgraded to 1.6.1
- Mesa has been upgraded to 7.4.2
- Most package has been rebuilt due to XOrg changes

Here's the latest Changelog since the last time i post to this blog (sorry, it will be a long post)
Thu Jun 11 13:57:36 CDT 2009
l/gtk+2-2.14.7-i486-4.txz: Rebuilt.

l/pango-1.22.4-i486-4.txz: Rebuilt.

l/pycairo-1.8.4-i486-3.txz: Rebuilt. The last one was built using the x86_64 build script (oops).

l/vte-0.20.5-i486-1.txz: Upgraded. This reverts the soname bump in the previous version of vte. :-/

x/mesa-7.4.2-i486-2.txz: Rebuilt. Fixed missing DRI drivers. Thanks to Jason Detring.

Wed Jun 10 13:23:30 CDT 2009
This batch of updates includes a major overhaul of X.Org -- thanks to Robby Workman for doing a huge amount of work updating the build scripts and testing everything. A large number of packages were recompiled or upgraded to drop references to the now-obsolete libxcb-xlib and libXaw8 libraries. We have workarounds in place for old binaries so it wasn't strictly required, but recompiling anyway gives a cleaner system. Enjoy!
a/apmd-3.2.2-i486-2.txz: Rebuilt.

a/dbus-1.2.14-i486-1.txz: Upgraded.

ap/gphoto2-2.4.5-i486-1.txz: Upgraded.

ap/normalize-0.7.6-i486-2.txz: Upgraded.

ap/pm-utils-1.2.5-i486-1.txz: Upgraded.

Security Update: ntp

One security update has been released today: ntp. There are two buffer-overflow problems that occurred to ntp prior to 4.2.4p7, so these were patched, even though one of the doesn't affect Slackware at all due to non linkable ntp package with ssl.

There are two other updates, which are pkgtool and liboil.

Here's the -Current changelog:
Wed Jun 3 18:17:19 CDT 2009
a/pkgtools-12.34567890-noarch-6.tgz: Patched makepkg to warn about possible problems with /usr/share/info usage. Thanks to Robby Workman.

l/liboil-0.3.16-i486-1.txz: Upgraded to liboil-0.3.16.

n/ntp-4.2.4p7-i486-1.txz: Upgraded to ntp-4.2.4p7.
Stack-based buffer overflow in the cookedprint function in ntpq/ntpq.c in ntpq in NTP before 4.2.4p7-RC2 allows arbitrary code execution by a malicious remote NTP server.
Stack-based buffer overflow in the crypto_recv function in ntp_crypto.c in ntpd in NTP before 4.2.4p7 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.
This does not affect the Slackware ntpd as it does not link with openssl.
For more information, see:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0159
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1252
(* Security fix *)
On x86_64 changelog, there are two more packages included:
a/kernel-modules-2.6.29.4-x86_64-2.txz: Fixed missing rc.modules symlink.
Thanks to Ricardo Felipe Klein.

extra/tightvnc/tightvnc-1.3.10-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded to tightvnc-1.3.10.

Slackware64-Current Changelog Added

My bad. Although Slackware64 has been officially announced for some time, i forgot to add the Slackware64-Current changelog entry on this blog. So, for that reason, i have added the new changelog on the right side of this blog.

Since the changelog on 32 and 64 bit are mostly the same, on my blog post, i will refer to 32 bit changelog, with some addition when new packages are arriving on 64 bit changelog. I hope it won't confused you big grin

If you know other Slackware-related links and you would like to add those on this blog, please let me know. It should be Slackware-related site.

New Poll

Time for new poll for this month. We know that the next release of Slackware will be 13.0. Since it's a big jump on the version number, it will contain big changes too. First of all, it will use KDE 4 instead of staying with KDE 3.5 which has been used for some time. This is a big changes and while many people still prefer KDE 3.5 due to it's stability, the path has been decided by Pat and his crew.

The second big changes is that Slackware 13.0 will come in two separate version, 32 bit and 64 bit. In case you haven't heard, Slackware-Current is now running on two trees, 32 and 64 bit. You can see the announcement on Slackware's main page. Many people have asked for this and now the wait is over.

It also contains lots of changes described on the -Current changelog (32 bit and 64 bit). A brief detail can be seen on CHANGES AND HINTS.

So the poll this month is all about your choice when Slackware 13.0 comes out. What will you use? I'm running this poll for two months, which i hope is enough to see Slackware 13.0 comes out before the poll ended big grin

Poll Results

This time, i am not late big grin

The poll has been running for about a month and it's time to show the results. As expected, most Slackware users would want to use the latest stable kernel, no matter the version is. Actually, in an ideal way, users would compile their own kernel since they might need different configuration with the configuration shipped with Slackware default kernel.

OK, here's the final result:

2.6.29.x 6 (6%)
2.6.30.x 11 (12%)
2.6.31.x 8 (8%)
Always use the latest stable kernel 64 (71%)

Recompiled xine-lib

Only one small update released today, which is recompiled xine-lib package. I'm not sure why it needs to be recompiled since there are no other changes, but i'm sure it for good thing.

Here's the single change:
Sun May 31 12:46:00 CDT 2009
xap/xine-lib-1.1.16.3-i486-4.txz: Recompiled.
