I politely ask you to start taking your meds again and stop acting like a tool.
Otherwise I will report this thread and ask for it to be locked because of the non-stop stream of insult.

My take about this scandal story:

If you do not know yet, the ChangeLog pages like http://www.slackware.com/changelog/c...php?cpu=x86_64 are usually updated several hours after the updated packages and the associated ChangeLog are pushed on the FTP servers.

Why happens that? Who knows? Probably the site updates its information in a period of several hours.

Anyways, I think that those fancy ChangeLog pages should be considered literally informal, and the real men knows that they should consult the real ChangeLog file, usually available first updated there:

http://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwa.../ChangeLog.txt

I believe that the first mistake made by OP was to trust the fancy ChangeLog page with his system instead of consulting the real file, and there he did probably the second mistake: to blindly upgrade the system (probably using the slackpkg) and a simple reboot rendered his system practically non bootable, because he do not updated also the bootloader.

My conclusion is that OP did a series of mistakes before ending with his system UN-bootable, and no one other than him is to blame.

Oh, did you want a GIT repository to consult?

Then, you will love this one:

https://git.slackware.nl/current/

BTW, if you are still angry that the latest kernel updates aren't tracked by a GIT repository, probably you will love this commit:

https://git.slackware.nl/current/com...df558d9a55895c
