patches/packages/lm_sensors-3.3.4-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes issues with sensors-detect that may cause serious trouble
  on recent hardware (most notably laptops.)  The symptoms are that the
  display starts misbehaving (wrong resolution or wrong gamma factor.)
  The risk is mitigated in this package by changing the default behavior of
  sensors-detect to no longer touch EDID EEPROMs and then to no longer probe
  graphics adapters at all unless the user asks for it.

patches/packages/bind-9.7.6_P2-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:  Upgraded.
  Prevents a named assert (crash) when validating caused by using
  "Bad cache" data before it has been initialized.  [RT #30025]
  ISC_QUEUE handling for recursive clients was updated to address a
  race condition that could cause a memory leak.  This rarely occurred
  with UDP clients, but could be a significant problem for a server
  handling a steady rate of TCP queries.  [RT #29539 & #30233]
  Under heavy incoming TCP query loads named could experience a
  memory leak which could lead to significant reductions in query
  response or cause the server to be terminated on systems with
  "out of memory" killers. [RT #29539]
  A condition has been corrected where improper handling of zero-length
  RDATA could cause undesirable behavior, including termination of
  the named process.  [RT #29644]

     * A large RRSET from a remote authoritative server that results in
       the recursive resolver trying to negatively cache the response can
       hit an off by one code error in named, resulting in named crashing.
       [RT #24650] [CVE-2011-1910]
     * Zones that have a DS record in the parent zone but are also listed
       in a DLV and won't validate without DLV could fail to validate. [RT
       #24631]

patches/packages/proftpd-1.3.3d-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes an unbounded copy operation in sql_prepare_where() that
  could be exploited to execute arbitrary code.  However, this only affects
  servers that use the sql_mod module (which Slackware does not ship), and
  in addition the ability to exploit this depends on an SQL injection bug
  that was already fixed in proftpd-1.3.2rc2 (this according to upstream).
  So in theory, this fix should only be of academic interest.
  But in practice, better safe than sorry.

  with problems due to that.  This should do it (third time's the charm).

patches/packages/seamonkey-2.0-i486-2_slack12.2.tgz:  Rebuilt.
  As of version 2.0, SeaMonkey no longer includes a shared libgtkmozembed
  library, so the pkgconfig and header files for this have been removed from
  the package to avoid confusion over why trying to compile programs that
  use it no longer works.  There's not really any way to avoid this issue --
  it's either upgrade SeaMonkey and lose libgtkmozembed, or keep using version
  1.1.18 and miss out on SeaMonkey security updates.  If you really need
  libgtkmozembed, the seamonkey-1.1.18 packages will be retained in either
  /patches or /pasture for Slackware versions 13.0 and earlier.

patches/packages/linux-2.6.27.31/kernel-modules-smp-2.6.27.31_smp-i686-2.tgz:
  Rebuilt the modules using the config-generic-smp-2.6.27.31-smp .config.
patches/packages/linux-2.6.27.31/kernel-generic-smp-2.6.27.31_smp-i686-2.tgz:
  Fixed the .config to use config-generic-smp-2.6.27.31-smp.
  The config-generic-huge-2.6.27.31-smp was mistakenly used for build -1.
  Thanks to Chuck56 for the report.
patches/packages/linux-2.6.27.31/kernel-source-2.6.27.31_smp-noarch-2.tgz:
  Changed the included .config to the config-generic-smp-2.6.27.31-smp version.
patches/packages/pidgin-2.5.9-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:
  This update fixes a bug in Pidgin's MSN protocol implementation can allow
  a remote attacker to send a malicious MSN message to a Pidgin user, which
  will possibly cause arbitrary code to be executed as that user.
  This issue was discovered by Federico Muttis of Core Security Technologies.
  For more information, see:

  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/svgalib_helper-1.9.25_2.6.27.31-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:
  Recompiled for 2.6.27.31.
+--------------------------+
Tue Aug 18 14:35:23 CDT 2009
patches/packages/linux-2.6.27.31/:
  Added new kernels and kernel packages for Linux 2.6.27.31 to address
  a bug in proto_ops structures which could allow a user to use the
  kernel sendpage operation to execute arbitrary code in page zero.
  This could allow local users to gain escalated privileges.
  This flaw was discovered by Tavis Ormandy and Julien Tinnes of the
  Google Security Team.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-2692
  In addition, these kernels change CONFIG_DEFAULT_MMAP_MIN_ADDR kernel
  config option value to 4096, which should prevent the execution of
  arbitrary code by future NULL dereference bugs that might be found in
  the kernel.  If you are compiling your own kernel, please check this
  option in your .config.  If it is set to =0, you may wish to edit it
  to 4096 (or some other value > 0) and then reconfigure, or the kernel
  will not have default protection against zero page attacks from
  userspace.
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/kernel-mmap_min_addr-4096-noarch-1.tgz:
  This package adds an init script to edit /etc/sysctl.conf, adding
  this config option:
    vm.mmap_min_addr = 4096
  This will configure the kernel to disallow mmap() to userspace of any
  page lower than 4096, preventing privilege escalation by CVE-2009-2692.
  This is a hot fix package and will take effect immediately upon
  installation on any system running a kernel that supports configurable
  /proc/sys/vm/mmap_min_addr (kernel 2.6.23 or newer).

  been reported that at least one Certificate Authority allowed such
  certificates to be issued.

patches/packages/udev-141-i486-2_slack12.2.tgz:
  Fixed a regression with serial/dialout device ownership.
  Slackware 12.2 uses the 'uucp' group for these devices, but the newer
  version of udev has changed them to 'dialout', leading to log errors and
  an incorrect group ownership for serial devices since the 'dialout' group
  does not exist on Slackware 12.2.
  This update changes the serial device group ownership back to 'uucp'.
  Thanks to Alexander Pravdin for the fast bug report.
  Changed the permissions on the real time clock (/dev/rtc0) so that all
  users can read it.

patches/packages/xdg-utils-1.0.2-noarch-3_slack12.2.tgz:
  This update fixes two security issues.  First, use of xdg-open in
  /etc/mailcap was found to be unsafe -- xdg-open passes along downloaded files
  without indicating what mime type they initially presented themselves as,
  leaving programs further down the processing chain to discover the file type
  again.  This makes it rather trivial to present a script (such as a .desktop
  file) as a document type (like a PDF) so that it looks safe to click on in a
  browser, but will result in the execution of an arbitrary script.  It might
  be safe to send files to trusted applications in /etc/mailcap, but it does
  not seem to be safe to send files to xdg-open in /etc/mailcap.
    This package will comment out calls to xdg-open in /etc/mailcap if they are
  determined to have been added by a previous version of this package.
  If you've made any local customizations to /etc/mailcap, be sure to check
  that there are no uncommented calls to xdg-open after installing this update.
  Thanks to Manuel Reimer for discovering this issue.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-0068
  Another bug in xdg-open fails to sanitize input properly allowing the
  execution of arbitrary commands.  This was fixed in the xdg-utils repository
  quite some time ago (prior to the inclusion of xdg-utils in Slackware), but
  was never fixed in the official release of xdg-utils.  The sources for
  xdg-utils in Slackware have now been updated from the repo to fix the problem.

  DSA_do_verify functions to prevent spoofing answers returned from zones using
  the DNSKEY algorithms DSA and NSEC3DSA.

patches/packages/mkinitrd-1.3.3-i486-1_slack12.2.tgz:
  Fixed a few bugs in the previous mkinitrd package:
  If a kernel version is requested with the -k option and modules are needed to
  build the initrd, exit with an error if no matching /lib/modules/ tree is
  present.  Usually an incorrect kernel version was supplied.
  Thanks to Eric Hameleers.
  When adding kernel modules to the initrd, be more verbose showing success and
  failure copying each module.  Thanks to Ellington Santos.
  With some newer kernels, "/dev/root" might be returned by mount as the root
  device, but this will not work as an initrd root device.  If mount returns
  /dev/root, look at the /dev/root symlink to determine the actual root device
  and use that so that the root device does not need to be supplied with -r.
  In the call to /sbin/modprobe used to determine module dependencies, use the
  option --ignore-install to avoid catching "install" lines under
  /etc/modprobe.d/ when modules that use these are added to the initrd.  This
  prevents /sbin/modprobe from being copied over busybox, breaking the initrd.
  Thanks to Ken Milmore.

Slackware 12.2 is released as -stable.  Thanks as always to everyone who helped
make this a great point release in the Slackware 12.x series.  Without such a
great community surrounding it, Slackware could not possibly be as stable and
reliable as it is.  Thanks to the Slackware Crew, the users of LinuxQuestions,
people contributing ideas and patches on IRC and other Slackware forums, the
developers at slackbuilds.org for bringing in new technologies, and everyone
else who shared insights that helped to refine this release over many months.
Happy release day to you all!  :-)
  Also, ISOs have been sent off to the replicator now to be pressed as a 6 CD
set or a single DVD.  The store.slackware.com is taking pre-orders -- if you
like Slackware, please consider supporting the project.  We've also added new
black T-shirts with the traditional Slackware logo.  Check them out!
  Once again, thanks to the entire Slackware community for all the help and
encouragement as Slackware 12.2 progressed to release.  Have fun!  -P.

kde/kdeadmin-3.5.10-i486-4.tgz:  Updated the knetworkconf patch to handle the

  Thanks to Niels Horn for the improvements.

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).

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.

Fri Dec  5 20:58:39 CST 2008
ap/ghostscript-8.63-i486-2.tgz:  Patched to remove a dependency on the
  experimental cairo output driver, which brings in dependencies on many X
  libraries.  Thanks to Marin Glibic for the bug report and link to the
  upstream patch.
ap/gutenprint-5.2.2-i486-3.tgz:  Edited setup.06.gutenprint, which still
  had the old path to the PPD files.  Thanks to Markus Kanet.
ap/pm-utils-1.2.3-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to pm-utils-1.2.3.
xap/gftp-2.0.19-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to gftp-2.0.19.

  In addition to improvements and bug fixes, this new version of PHP also
  addresses several security issues, including:
  Fixed a crash inside gd with invalid fonts (Fixes CVE-2008-3658).

While there are still some docs that need updating and probably a few more
tweaks and updates here and there, everything is mostly in place for the next
stable release, Slackware 12.2.  The versions of major components like X and
the kernel can be considered frozen.  Anything major that we haven't done yet
will probably wait for the release after this next one.  As Slackware 12.2 is
only a 0.1 version bump, we're trying to focus on making it better without
causing instability or losing compatibility with Slackware 12.1 wherever
possible.  Invasive changes like the new X (that will require changes to
xorg.conf) and merging KDE4 should probably wait for Slackware 13.0.
We will call this batch Slackware 12.2 release candidate one.  :-)
a/aaa_base-12.2.0-noarch-1.tgz:  Bumped /etc/slackware-version version number
  in preparation for a stable release, and updated the initial emails.
a/aaa_elflibs-12.2.0-i486-1.tgz:  Updated the initial "starter" library package
  to the latest versions in -current.
a/genpower-1.0.5-i486-2.tgz:  Patched genpowerfail to halt the machine during a
  power failure rather than causing it to reboot over and over.
  Thanks to Marin Mitov for the bug report.
a/ntfs-3g-1.5130-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to ntfs-3g-1.5130.
a/pciutils-2.2.10-i486-2.tgz:  Updated pci.ids.
a/sysvinit-scripts-1.2-noarch-26.tgz:  Patched rc.M to start rc.wicd and 
  rc.snmpd if those scripts are executable, and removed the reference to the
  old rc.hplip script.  Also, modifed rc.K to shut down acpid using rc.acpid.
  Changed /proc/bus/usb mounting in rc.S to use the options from /etc/fstab if
  there is an entry for it there (thanks to Gerardo Exequiel Pozzi).
a/udev-135-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to udev-135.
a/usbutils-0.73-i486-3.tgz:  Updated usb.ids.
ap/alsa-utils-1.0.17-i486-2.tgz:  Patched rc.alsa to use [[:blank:]] instead of
  [[:space:]] with tr, since the latter removes vertical whitespace and causes
  everything to be incorrectly listed on one line.
  Thanks to Ondrej Kubecka for the patch.
l/hal-info-20081127-noarch-1.tgz:  Upgraded to hal-info-20081127.
n/ethtool-6-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to ethtool-6.  Evidently this has been out
  for some time -- thanks to Jan Rafaj for the notice.
n/network-scripts-12.2-noarch-1.tgz:  Removed the automatic DHCP timeout
  reduction in rc.inet1, since the kernel is not reliably returning correct
  information about that.  If the default 30 second timeout is too long, it
  can be shortened in rc.inet1.conf.
  Patched rc.ip_forward to reapply any non-default ipv4 parameters after
  turning ipv4 forwarding on or off, as doing that clears them.  Thanks to Mark.
tcl/expect-5.44.1.11-i486-2.tgz:  Recompiled.
tcl/tcl-8.5.5-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to tcl-8.5.5.

a/sysvinit-scripts-1.2-noarch-25.tgz:  Edited rc.S to clear temporary files

  scripts add it to the $PATH.  Thanks to Phillip Warner.
n/wireless-tools-29-i486-4.tgz:  Patched rc.wireless to take the interface
  down and retry if setting the mode fails.  Thanks to Guan Xin.

  copying a file could cause mc to crash.  Thanks to David Somero for the patch.

a/acpid-1.0.8-i486-2.tgz:  Fixed a bug in the build script so that
  /etc/acpi/acpi_handler.sh.new is chmoded executable.  If you installed the
  previous package, you should chmod 755 your /etc/acpi/acpi_handler.sh.
  Thanks to Stuart Winter for pointing this out.
+--------------------------+
Wed Nov 19 19:52:15 CST 2008
a/acpid-1.0.8-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to acpid-1.0.8.
  /etc/acpi/acpi_handler.sh will be installed as a .new with future upgrades,
  but since whatever version already installed on the system owns
  /etc/acpi/acpi_handler.sh, it will still be overwritten one more time when
  this update is installed.  If you've customized your script, be sure to back
  it up before upgrading.
a/mkinitrd-1.3.2-i486-4.tgz:  Fixed a bug where unless -F was the first option
  given, other command line options would not override the contents of
  /etc/mkinitrd.conf as documented in the man page.
  Thanks to David Somero for the patch.
l/libxml2-2.6.32-i486-2.tgz:  Patched and recompiled.

NOTE:  These are some of the more important updates for X.Org.  For the last
  several days we have been building and testing the very newest X updates, and
  it seems that the more intrusive updates are probably best left to develop
  until sometime after the coming -stable Slackware 12.2 release.  Those will
  require a lot of testing and some things don't seem to be quite there yet.
  "X -configure" is hanging the console, DRI is not yet working on all the
  hardware tested, and the new xorg-server will render most existing xorg.conf
  files non-functional until several changes are made.
extra/slacktrack/slacktrack-2.01-noarch-1.tgz:  Upgraded to slacktrack-2.01.

n/gnutls-2.6.2-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to gnutls-2.6.2.  The security fix in
  gnutls-2.6.1 had a flaw in cases where the certificate chain contained only
  one self-signed certificate.  This update fixes the issue.
n/net-snmp-5.4.2.1-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to net-snmp-5.4.2.1.
  This fixes a problem where a user with read access could cause snmpd to
  crash, resulting in a denial of service.

    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-4309
  (* Security fix *)
n/proftpd-1.3.1-i486-3.tgz:  Recompiled.  This seems to be picky about having
  an exact version of OpenSSL.  Thanks to Adam Kennedy for the bug report.
xap/mozilla-firefox-3.0.4-i686-1.tgz:
  Upgraded to firefox-3.0.4.
  This fixes some security issues:
  For more information, see:

ap/acct-6.4pre1-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to acct-6.4pre1 to support the new kernel
  accounting file format (and the older log formats).  Thanks to Jan Rafaj for
  letting me know this needed an update and where to find it.
ap/madplay-0.15.2b-i486-2.tgz:  Recompiled.  This fixes a problem (endian
  issue?) where madplay just outputs noise.
  Thanks to Jan Rafaj for the bug report.
kde/kdepim-3.5.10-i486-4.tgz:  Recompiled against bluez-libs and pilot-link.
l/pilot-link-0.12.3-i486-6.tgz:  Recompiled against bluez-libs-3.36.
n/bluez-hcidump-1.42-i486-2.tgz:  Recompiled against bluez-libs-3.36.
n/bluez-libs-3.36-i486-2.tgz:  Switched back to the BlueZ 3.x series.  As the
  website says, "without support from the userspace these modules are useless."
  Well, it seems as if the userspace support for BlueZ 3.x is still much better
  than the support for 4.x, so we'll move back to these packages (recompiled)
  until the situation changes.  Thanks to Tom Nardi for the detailed report
  concerning the usability of BlueZ 3.x versus BlueZ 4.x.
n/bluez-utils-3.36-i486-4.tgz:  Switched back to bluez-utils-3.36, with the
  udev rules moved into /lib/udev/rules.d/.

n/gnutls-2.6.1-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to gnutls-2.6.1.
  From the gnutls-2.6.1 NEWS file:
    ** libgnutls: Fix X.509 certificate chain validation error.
    [GNUTLS-SA-2008-3]  The flaw makes it possible for man in the middle
    attackers (i.e., active attackers) to assume any name and trick GNU TLS
    clients into trusting that name.  Thanks for report and analysis from
    Martin von Gagern <Martin.vGagern@gmx.net>.  [CVE-2008-4989]

Fri Nov  7 22:37:26 CST 2008
a/cups-1.3.9-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to cups-1.3.9.
  This update fixes three vulnerabilities in the SGI image format filter, the
  texttops filter, and the HP-GL and HP-GL/2 plotter format filter.  All three
  of these could result in a denial of service, and the plotter filter issue
  could possibly be used to execute code as the print spooler user.

  Note that some drives that were previously seen as /dev/hd? might now show up
  as /dev/sd?, so be prepared for that possibility.  This should only happen on
  machines that could have used libata with hd?=noprobe, but did not.  The
  CONFIG_PATA_LEGACY (libata, /dev/sd?) is the default now for PATA controllers
  that require a generic driver.

that we have a new kernel (with the TCP options ordering problem fixed), I hope
there will be time soon to look at those things.

  preferring bitmapped fonts in some cases.  Thanks to Piter Punk.
+--------------------------+
Sun Sep 21 11:39:12 CDT 2008
xap/imagemagick-6.4.3_6-i486-2.tgz:  Recompiled using the --without-modules
  option, which seems to work around the issue with processing ps and eps
  files.  Thanks to David Somero for the information.
+--------------------------+
Sat Sep 20 22:25:35 CDT 2008
a/coreutils-6.12-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to coreutils-6.12.

l/gnome-icon-theme-2.23.92-noarch-2.tgz:  The previous package was missing 3354
  symlinks to alternate icon names.  Thanks to Tom Nardi for letting me know
  about the new --enable-icon-mapping option.
l/libpng-1.2.32-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to libpng-1.2.32.
xap/imagemagick-6.4.3_6-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to ImageMagick-6.4.3-6.
  This, like the previous package, fails when "convert foo.eps foo.png" is
  tried.  It's not a Slackware problem (I see it elsewhere when searching),
  but the imagemagick package from 12.1 works...  unless it is recompiled.
  Any hints welcome.

ap/vim-7.2.018-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to vim-7.2.018.
n/bluez-utils-3.36-i486-2.tgz:  It seems --enable-all is no longer a valid
  ./configure option for this package, and everything needs to be enabled
  individually, so several utilities and config files were missing from the
  previous package.  Thanks to Tom Nardi for the help with this.
n/bind-9.4.2_P2-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to bind-9.4.2-P2.

a/etc-12.2-noarch-1.tgz:  Do not set LC_ALL POSIX in /etc/csh.login.  Not only

  See the documention for changes to the command-line options.
  Thanks to tasos and misiu for the update suggestion.

xap/xmms-1.2.11-i486-2.tgz:  Patched to fix the doublesize option.
  Thanks to Patryk Krawaczynski, Keith Richie, and Catalin Tomozei for all
  sending in the same working patch.  Honorable mentions to LukenShiro, misiu,
  and Willy Sudiarto Raharjo for proposing "XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 xmms" as
  another possible workaround for the problem.
+--------------------------+
Thu Sep 11 16:02:24 CDT 2008
xap/xmms-1.2.11-i486-1.tgz:  Added xmms-1.2.11.  This is an audio player that
  is similar to audacious, but uses about a third of the CPU power.
  Please note that "doublesize" mode seems broken -- if it is enabled, XMMS
  will crash, and then will not start again until $HOME/.xmms is cleared out.
  Any patch for this issue would be appreciated.
+--------------------------+
Thu Sep 11 13:58:37 CDT 2008
d/python-2.5.2-i486-4.tgz:  The -3 package was missing sqlite3.so.
  Thanks to Audrius Kazukauskas for pointing out the omission.  And,
  sorry about the omitted accent in your name.  The limitations of ASCII
  strike again.
+--------------------------+
Thu Sep 11 00:49:16 CDT 2008
  A few updates...  more to come.
a/glibc-solibs-2.7-i486-11.tgz:  Recompiled against Linux 2.6.24.7.
a/glibc-zoneinfo-2.7-noarch-11.tgz:  Rebuild from tzcode/tzdata2008e.
a/kernel-generic-2.6.24.7-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to Linux 2.6.24.7.
  We are bumping the kernel within the 2.6.24.x series for now rather than
  leaping for 2.6.26.x immediately for sereral reasons.  First, we know that
  it works within the existing framework, and the config files did not need
  major changes (only CONFIG_SECURITY_FILE_CAPABILITIES was changed to =y for
  libcap support).  Also, we know that the kernel headers are usable for
  compiling glibc, KDE, and several other important packages.  Finally, we
  had to recompile the kernel anyway due to the GCC bump, and would rather not
  rush into 2.6.26.x.  Finding the optimal .config files will not be trivial,
  speakup will need to be reevaluated, and so forth.  But don't panic -- the
  goal is 2.6.26.x (or newer, if it proves stable).  Testing here and
  throughout the Slackware community continues with the latest kernels, and so
  far things are looking good.  This is an interim kernel to make sure that
  video drivers, console UTF8, and other things don't suddenly begin to act
  strangely...
a/kernel-generic-smp-2.6.24.7_smp-i686-1.tgz:  Upgraded to Linux 2.6.24.7.
a/kernel-huge-2.6.24.7-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to Linux 2.6.24.7.
a/kernel-huge-smp-2.6.24.7_smp-i686-1.tgz:  Upgraded to Linux 2.6.24.7.
a/kernel-modules-2.6.24.7-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to Linux 2.6.24.7.
a/kernel-modules-smp-2.6.24.7_smp-i686-1.tgz:  Upgraded to Linux 2.6.24.7.
a/less-418-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to less-418.
a/ntfs-3g-1.2812-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to ntfs-3g-1.2812.
a/util-linux-ng-2.14.1-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to util-linux-ng-2.14.1.
ap/flac-1.2.1-i486-2.tgz:  Recompiled to bring back the XMMS plugin.
ap/gphoto2-2.4.2-i486-1.tgz:  Added gphoto2-2.4.2.

  Patched to improve UTF8 support (thanks to Vit Rosin).

d/cvs-1.11.23-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to cvs-1.11.23.
d/doxygen-1.5.6-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to doxygen-1.5.6.
d/gcc-4.2.4-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to gcc-4.2.4.
  This an upgrade to a known stable GCC.  The gcc-4.3.x branch is much more
  strict about source correctness, and many upstream sources would need to be
  patched in order to compile with it.  Therefore, this is the logical next
  compiler to use until those issues are worked out upstream.  Adding gcc-4.3.x
  at this time would be, IMHO, an annoyance for many people compiling their own
  sources or packages.
d/gcc-g++-4.2.4-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to gcc-4.2.4.

n/samba-3.2.3-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to samba-3.2.3.  This fixes a security
  issue where group_mapping.ldb was accidentally chmod 666 (only in -current,
  as all previous Slackware versions use the Samba 3.0.x branch which is not
  affected).  This build also adds the mount.smbfs wrapper script for
  mount.cifs, and a link to the wrapper from /usr/bin/smbmount.  This may
  fix some of the issues that people were having mounting SMB filesystems.
  Note that SMBFS is considered obsolete now, and using mount.smbfs really
  isn't any different in function using the wrapper than using mount.cifs
  directly.  For more information on the security issue, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3789
  (* Security fix *)
  Since this security issue only affects the unreleased development branch,
  (aka -current) this ChangeLog comment is the official notification.
  For those using older versions of Slackware, many of them got bugfix
  updates to the 3.0.x branch.  Check the new packages out -- they should
  correct some stability issues.

A couple of things slipped through the cracks with that last update.  An old
patch was applied to kdenetwork making that build fail.  Once that was fixed
kdetoys (previously missing) built correctly.  Perhaps it needed a header file
or library from kdenetwork.  Sorry about that, and thanks to
Willy Sudiarto Raharjo and Corrado Franco for pointing out the omissions.

  desktop to a whole new level of appearance and ease of use.  I've installed
  this on my main email/browsing/general machine and as far as I'm concerned

a/sysvinit-scripts-1.2-noarch-22.tgz:  _Really_ quieted down rc.M's mime update
  this time (it seems that errors are sent to stdout).  Thanks to Robby Workman.
  If we must update icon-cache files in rc.M (which is done only if they already
  exist), background it so that it doesn't delay the boot as much.
  In rc.S, only update the kernel version in /etc/motd if the file begins with
  "Linux", leaving the rest of the file free to be customized.
  Thanks to Pete Cervasio for the improved MOTD script.
  Grab some information about the root partition from /proc/mounts to
  initialize /etc/mtab.  Thanks to Alan Hicks.

  This fixes a minor security bug where a very long hostname in the trace path
  could lead to an overflow (and most likely just a crash).
  (* Security fix *)
n/net-snmp-5.4.1.2-i486-1.tgz:
  Upgraded to net-snmp-5.4.1.2.
  A vulnerability was discovered where an attacked could spoof an authenticated

  When upgrading OpenSSH, it is VERY IMPORTANT to also upgrade OpenSSL, or
  it is possible to be unable to log back into sshd!
n/openssl-0.9.8h-i486-1.tgz:
  Upgraded to OpenSSL 0.9.8h.
  The Codenomicon TLS test suite uncovered security bugs in OpenSSL.
  If OpenSSL was compiled using non-default options (Slackware's package
  is not), then a malicious packet could cause a crash.  Also, a malformed
  TLS handshake could also lead to a crash.

testing/packages/jdk-6u10_beta-i586-1.tgz:  Added Java(TM) 2 Platform Standard
  Edition Runtime Environment Version 6.0 update 10 beta.  Evidently the
  version 6.0 update 7 (stable) packages did not fix the CUPS printing issue,
  but these beta packages should (but remember, they are BETA releases).
testing/packages/jre-6u10_beta-i586-1.tgz:  Added Java(TM) 2 Platform Standard
  Edition Development Kit Version 6.0 update 10 beta.
  Both of these Java(TM) packages are suitable for use on Slackware 12.1 and

  Also, thanks to Phillip Warner for providing a configuration fix to allow
  mailto: links to open in Thunderbird (or other mailers).  To use this, you
  may need to copy /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.1/defaults/profile/mimeTypes.rdf over

a/ntfs-3g-1.2712-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to ntfs-3g-1.2712.
  This has been compiled to use the internal FUSE library rather than the
  system FUSE library.  The benefit of this is that if /bin/ntfs-3g is make
  setuid root, then non-root users can use it to mount NTFS partitions if
  /etc/fstab allows it.  Also, this version of ntfs-3g would require the CVS
  version of external FUSE, so that helped make this an easy choice.
a/util-linux-ng-2.14-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to util-linux-ng-2.14.
x/mesa-7.0.3-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to mesa-7.0.3.
  We've had a few reports that this new mesa version fixes some instability
  issues people were having with mesa-7.0.2.  While it's not usually a good
  idea to run -current packages on older Slackware versions, this mesa package
  should be fully compatible with a patched-up Slackware 12.1 box.  If mesa is
  causing issues for you, it might be worth a try.  At worst you'd have to go
  back to the older package.
    When we make changes to the libraries or toolchain that would make -current
  break compatibility with Slackware 12.1, we will try to make note of it here.
  However, we don't always know what side effects or regressions an update may
  cause, but will do the best we can to offer a heads-up where possible.
xap/seamonkey-1.1.11-i486-1.tgz:

n/bind-9.4.2_P1-i486-1.tgz:
  Upgraded to bind-9.4.2-P1.
  This upgrade addresses a security flaw known as the CERT VU#800113 DNS Cache
  Poisoning Issue.  This is the summary of the problem from the BIND site:
    "A weakness in the DNS protocol may enable the poisoning of caching
     recurive resolvers with spoofed data.  DNSSEC is the only full solution.
     New versions of BIND provide increased resilience to the attack."
  It is suggested that sites that run BIND upgrade to one of the new packages
  in order to reduce their exposure to DNS cache poisoning attacks.

slackware/l/jre-6u10_beta-i586-1.tgz:  Upgraded to Java(TM) 2 Platform Standard
  Edition Runtime Environment Version 6.0 update 10 beta.  This is a BETA
  VERSION and may contain problems, but it may also fix an issue with CUPS

  package a try at your own risk.  For now, -current seems like the only prudent
  place for this package.  Hopefully we will see official 6u10 releases soon.

    "* Fix for potential vulnerability against compromised/malicious servers
     (reported by iDefense)"
  This package build also includes the new alsa driver (--with-sound=alsa),
  though I couldn't get local sound redirection.  Perhaps it was just my
  command line error though, so the driver remains included for testing.

Slackware 12.1 is released as -stable.  :-)  Again, huge thanks to everybody
who pitched in and helped with bug reports, patches, testing, suggestions,
other comments, and everything else.  Without this valuable input, Slackware
would be nowhere near what it is today.  Special thanks to the CREW, to the
people developing and testing for slackbuilds.org (where many of Slackware's
future additions are first built and tested), and to everyone on
linuxquestions.org, various #slackware or ##slackware IRC channels, other
Slackware related web sites, and other places where the community shares their
needs and concerns with the team.  On behalf of everyone here, thanks.
  We think you'll enjoy this new release, and hope that you'll find it to be
much more than 0.1 better than Slackware 12.0.  ;-)
Have fun!  -P.
extra/slackpkg/slackpkg-2.70.3-noarch-2.tgz:  Updated the version in the
  slackpkg script from 2.70.2 to 2.70.3.
