iptables 1.6.0 is released, http://lists.netfilter.org/pipermail...15/000217.html
Quote:
this release includes the first official release of the
iptables over nftables infrastructure, which includes the following
utilities:

* iptables-compat
* iptables-compat-save
* iptables-compat-restore
* ip6tables-compat
* ip6tables-compat-save
* ip6tables-compat-restore
* ebtables-compat
* arptables-compat

that have the same getopt-based parser as the native tool, so the
syntax remains the same, eg.

Code:
 # iptables-compat -P INPUT DROP
 # iptables-compat -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED
 # iptables-compat -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
 # iptables-compat -A INPUT -m state --state INVALID -j LOG  --log-prefix "INVALID: "

All of these are either in my queue or in Pat's tree now - except for rpm. I used to try to keep rpm relatively recent, but it became a real booger (for reasons I don't recall now) at some point. It might be a simple bump, but it might not be, and I don't want to crawl down into that rabbithole only to find that it's not simple at all. Have you tried this one to have some idea one way or the other?
I tested rpm here, just for fun. No changes needed to the build. The `query` and `verify` commands worked just fine:

Code:
root@/tmp/package-rpm/bin:# ./rpm --verify /home/ry/Downloads/atom.x86_64.rpm 
warning: Generating 12 missing index(es), please wait...
package /home/ry/Downloads/atom.x86_64.rpm is not installed
root@/tmp/package-rpm/bin:# ./rpm --query /home/ry/Downloads/atom.x86_64.rpm  
package /home/ry/Downloads/atom.x86_64.rpm is not installed
Strangely `--version` still says 4.10, had to double-check the tarball on that one, but I think it is an upstream mistake:

Code:
root@/tmp/package-rpm/bin:# ./rpm --version
RPM version 4.10.0
Hope that helps! Anyways, I'm pretty happy with where -current is at now, thanks to Robby, Pat and everyone else for providing a top-notch OS.

Before my request for an upgrade, I had installed rpm-4.10.3 and rpm-4.12.0.1.
same SlackBuild as the one in current at the moment.

the command rpm2cpio *rpm | cpio -ivm was working.

rpm --showrc displayed the usual unix tools(*) at the right place for Slackware, even the man directory If my memory doesn't fail me.
optflags add to be adjusted (in the HOME directory) since we use "-O2 -fPIC" not "-O2 -g" and I don't want to build with "-mtune=generic" but with "-march=x86-64 -mtune=native".

Few weeks ago I started to use Fedora, learn to and make my own packages on that rpm platform (Mandrake, father of Mandriva, was the last rpm distro I used more than 2 days).
I liked very much the rpm way of building packages and I told to myself why not turning my building scripts into rpms for Slackware?

I haven't make that thought into motion yet, basically I was waiting for the upgrade.

(*) didn't check all of them...

@rworkman

When you have some time, can you look at glibc-2.22 and quota-3.17? Two includes (rpcsvc/rquota.h and rpcsvc/rquota.x) are overlapping...

Thanks

I second this request having had unexpected fun with a Skylake based laptop this weekend, not having paid enough attention when putting an order in. The 4.1 kernel needs specific boot-options to enable hardware support for these CPUs, see http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...prelim-support which is non-obvious to figure out at best. Moreover both with and without that boot-option the 4.1 kernel doesn't work properly, i.e. I see complete system lock-ups, display glitches, not able to switch between GUI/console, etc.

As these CPUs are now actively being sold it is worth including at LTS kernel that can deal with those CPUs, i.e. the 4.4 kernel branch. I have it Slackware current running with the 4.4.0-rc5 kernel on a skylake laptop and seems to work without issues.

Are you absolutely sure the lock ups are not being caused by nouveau? There is a known bug with nouveau, so I always boot with 'nouveau.modeset=0' on 4.1.x kernels.

Yes, absolutely as there is no nvidia card in this laptop.

It uses the on-chip Intel graphics on a Intel Pentium 4405U (see http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-P....149858.0.html). Laptop works smoothly on the 4.4 kernel, but not on 4.1.15

The OpenVPN developers recently released version 2.3.9; -current has 2.3.6. I've been using my own 2.3.8 package on a production VPN server for some time with no problems, and I imagine 2.3.9 will be fine too.

Some little tests around kernels 4.3.x & 4.4.x , for me , are bogus.


I see error messages in this kernel lines around ata , ending in to NCQ disabled for too many errors.
If some one have a 4.4 or 4.3 , pay attention to dmesg.

dmesg|grep -i error

I have seen no errors so far on my normal PC which is running 4.3.3. But i understand 4.3 / 4.4 Kernel might not be for everyone, so maybe put it in testing or extra?

I running too a skylake cpu the i7-6700K and my problem is the Intel HD graphics 530 see:
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...prelim-support
Also Mesa driver is exposing OpenGL 3.3 support while OpenGL 4.3 is what's supported by the hardware.
I am now in 4.3.X branch with Intel firmware built in and seems to working fine.

We could introduce the libinput driver(s) into the mix:

http://www.freedesktop.org/software/libinput/

Latest version is 1.1.4.

The Xorg wrapper driver (which succeeds functionality from synaptics and evdev both) is here:

http://www.x.org/releases/individual/driver/

Latest release 0.16.0.

This would ready Slackware for wayland usage and effectively simply some of the input drivers used as described here:

http://who-t.blogspot.com/2015/01/xf...-t+%28Who-T%29

xfce4-settings-4.12.0 already has compile time support flags that can be used to enable libinput mouse pointer controls for adjustment:

Code:
--enable-xorg-libinput

This just recently made it into Fedora. While it's only fair to point out that libinput seemed to be a completely seamless transition for two machines here in front of me, we'll let Fedora do the testing on libinput support and work out the kinks.
