Massive updates in -current
 
Must be close folks - "are we there yet"!

Didier Spaier 06-25-2012 02:34 AM

At least, we were never closer ;)

I suggest you to wait a little before syncing your mirrors, because it seems this time Pat hasn't used the --delete rsync flag to sync his own, so old version of the packages are still there.

conraid 06-25-2012 03:08 AM

And the /source tree still contains the old slackbuild files

I think the new release is very close, read the changelogs:

Nope. Hold your horses, this is just a simple change in one file. It shows what the next version will be called.
Expect to see release candidates and other humdrum prior to an actual release.

osuosl mirror still outdated. Its not quite good because Slackware.com/Changelog links to it.

UP: Forgetting it. Waiting for RCs.

ponce 06-25-2012 05:40 AM

if you want an updated rsync mirror, try carrol: pass to alien's sync script this variable

RSYNCURLROOT=carroll.cac.psu.edu::slackware/

Goody I like updates! :)

Seems fine here, the old packages seem to be gone as ponce says.

BTW You do know that ftp.slackware.com is ftp.osuosl.org ?

Code:

ftp.slackware.com.      14400  IN      A      140.211.166.134
ftp.osuosl.org.        324    IN      A      140.211.166.134

Nice set of updates, especially for KDE fans. I was hoping to see some XFCE bumpage, but I've waited this long, I can wait a little longer. :)


BTW, Anyone else notice Pat's use of "slackware-next" in the comments for the kernel package? Far more descriptive name than "slackware-current" which has always seemed a bit of a misnomer. I like it.

I will wait for my local mirror to sync, but I am curious about this.

From the new rc.inet1.conf file:
Code:

# Example of how to configure a bridge:
# Note the added "BRNICS" variable which contains a space-separated list
# of the physical network interfaces you want to add to the bridge.
#IFNAME[0]="br0"
#BRNICS[0]="eth0"
#IPADDR[0]="192.168.0.1"
#NETMASK[0]="255.255.255.0"
#USE_DHCP[0]=""
#DHCP_HOSTNAME[0]=""

Setting up a bridged interface will be helpful to get a virtual machine connected to the network. For some scenarios a bridge works better than a NAT solution - a bridged network connection will allow your VM's to be accessible from the network so that you can run network services inside the VM.

See my rc.vdenetwork script for an example of how to setup a bridged configuration which uses VDE to connect virtual machines (QEMU in my case) to the LAN.

This is the configuration I use to build all my packages.

I really appreciate the built-in bridge support in rc.inet1 - it'll replace my own, probably brittle, shell script implementation. Thanks, Eric :)
