Loving the addition of Grub2. I know we've had Grub-Legacy hiding in the sources for a while now, but never a true part of Slackware or even Extras.

I too hope we can see a choice between eLilo, Grub2, and maybe even SysLinux at installation.

This release is going to be very exciting.

I only provided updated glibc packages for slackware-current. I have no fixed time frame by which I can make packages for older Slackware releases available - I do this Slackware stuff in my free time, and that time is very limited at the moment.

Not so crazy about the Firefox change, but other than that, I think it'll be a great release. On the desktop side, KDE 4.10.5 is very stable, and Xfce users will now enjoy Thunar with tabs and all :-)

Thank Eric:
Anything goes south, I guess I'll have to "get current"

But I was only wondering what the ramifications may be to the system.
I guess I should worry needlessly, you guys are way smarter than I am.

Thanks for all you do!

It's your choice to stick with the multilib version of glibc which you had installed prior to the upgrade. The new package in Slackware fixes an integer overflow, see http://marc.info/?l=oss-security&m=137901344720874&w=2 but I have not seen reports of exploits.

I will eventually release patched multilib packages but I first need to upgrade my own virtual machines, and the server hardware died last weekend and I am busy replacing two drives after already having had to replace the case and PSU. The computer in the living room and that of my son had software issues as well, which of course have priority (family first even though those were Windows issues)... time is not working in my favour at the moment.

Eric:

You don't owe me any explanations.

Peace.

Well, I did have to roll back those installs using true multilib Slackware64
and a local stash of /home/jj/Documents/Archives/Slackware/multilib/14.0/slackware64-compat32/

Scarey too. Skype, Thunderbird, and rainlendar2 all quit working.

Fortunately, It was only for a minute.

I want to add my thanks to Pat & all who have worked on Slackware through the years. I am quite happy about having grub2 as part of the distribution. I have been removing lilo & installing grub2 since grub2 has been available. It is not as intuitive as grub-legacy, but it's also not near as difficult as people try to make it appear.
Regards,
Bill
