Where to submit patches for Slackware?


Where can I submit a patch for Slackware? I looked at the Slackware.com website, but I did not find a matching e-mail. It's not a security patch/issue. Lets say, I have a patch for a file contained in etc-12.1-noarch-4.tgz, where should I submit it?

TIA

It's probably best to just contact Pat with the details. His email address can be found here.

You can also just post your problem and the patch you came up with here. That way, it can be commented on before you send it to Pat - he gets enough emails as it is.

Ok, thanks :-) Should I start a new thread about this patch? It's a really small one :-)

So here it is:

MySQL is by default in Slackware. PostgreSQL is not.
But for PostgreSQL is an entry in /etc/services, and the MySQL entries are missing... Correct if I'm wrong :-)

If it was that small you could have added it to your previous post already :-)

Hi

It looks like something useful enough. You should email your patch with the rationale to Pat.
