A hack??? Problems with Slackware 8.1 ... starting October 1
It may be that my Slackware 8.1 loads have been hacked and that might account for the problems I've had since October 1.
Running on 3 machines:
All posted security patches since June load...
Problem.... All web browsers report a problem referencing "globals.pl" when
the URL is a cgi-bin code.... all of them (5)
The gnome calendar program crashes.
Now all of these problems can be avoided by backing up the system clock to before October 1... I don't know that that is the exact date of problem appearance.
I suspect (in order)...... glibc-2.5.5
All these were loaded as binary packages from the Slackware site and are
the very same packages that are currently posted there....
It could also be a problem in the Gnome-1.4 package... I'll load another
window program to test this... or in XFree86-4.2 and I'll not bother to backup
to XFree86-4.1.1 -- just live with the problems..
