Slackware 14.0 - which new packages are required


Hello, Slackware users!

I am doing an upgrade of Slackware from 13.37 to 14.0. I only use packages which are required for my system (232). I did read the CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT and there are new packages for Slack14 (in a,ap,l ...).
Are there any new packages which are required for the system to boot?

Thanks. I found this one. But there must be something more about the kmod since I cannot boot now properly
it tells something about libkmod.so.2 (/sbin/udevadm cannot find it).

Do not forget to read & use 'UPGRADE.TXT''. Plus look at post: #336 for information on security updates & getting on mail list.

HTH!
