this was all that i upgraded since last restart
a/devs-2.3.1-noarch-22.tgz: Added /dev/ACM* devices.
(Thanks to Manolis Tzanidakis)
a/pkgtools-10.2.0-i486-2.tgz: Merged in Jim Hawkins' fixed speed
optimizations for pkgtool.
a/udev-062-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to udev-062.
This seems to be broken with regard to ALSA devices... I'd suggest
anyone using a 2.6 kernel "chmod 644 /etc/rc.d/rc.udev" unless you want
to help locate and report bugs. It's also possible that this has
something to do with the ever-changing syntax used in the udev.rules
config file. If you find any problems that can be attributed to that,
fixes would be appreciated. For now, rc.udev will be off by default.
ap/mysql-4.1.12-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to mysql-4.1.12.
ap/texinfo-4.8-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to texinfo-4.8.
d/perl-5.8.7-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to perl-5.8.7, DBD-mysql-3.0002,
and DBI-1.48.
kde/kdebindings-3.4.1-i486-2.tgz: Recompiled against perl-5.8.7 and
kde/koffice-1.4.0a-i486-2.tgz: Recompiled against mysql-4.1.12.
kde/qt-3.3.4-i486-2.tgz: Recompiled against mysql-4.1.12.
n/bitchx-1.1-i486-2.tgz: Recompiled against mysql-4.1.12.
n/irssi-0.8.9-i486-7.tgz: Recompiled against perl-5.8.7.
n/php-4.4.0-i486-2.tgz: Recompiled against mysql-4.1.12.
n/popa3d-1.0-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to popa3d-1.0.
n/tcpdump-3.9.3-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to libpcap-0.9.3 and tcpdump-3.9.3.
This fixes an issue where an invalid BGP packet can cause tcpdump to
go into an infinate loop, effectively disabling network monitoring.
(* Security fix *)
n/vsftpd-2.0.3-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to vsftpd-2.0.3.
x/x11-6.8.2-i486-2.tgz: Reverted to the 6.8.1 version of the ATI Rage128
DRI module, as there's an undefined symbol in the newer version that
prevents it from loading and breaks direct rendering for these cards.
This bug has been reported on the freedesktop,org site but appears to
have been closed without a fix...
To observe the problem, on a system with a Rage128 card and DRI
configured, use this command: LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo
(Thanks to Andrey V. Panov for the bug report)
xap/gaim-1.4.0-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gaim-1.4.0.
xap/imagemagick-6.2.3_3-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to ImageMagick-6.2.3-3.
xap/jre-symlink-1.0.5-noarch-1.tgz: Upgraded for firefox-1.0.5.
xap/mozilla-firefox-1.0.5-i686-1.tgz: Upgraded to mozilla-firefox-1.0.5.
This fixes several security issues. For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
xap/mozilla-thunderbird-1.0.5-i686-1.tgz: Upgraded to thunderbird-1.0.5.
This fixes several security issues. For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
xap/xscreensaver-4.22-i486-2.tgz: Fixed location of man pages.
(Thanks to Alak Trakru)
xap/xv-3.10a-i486-4.tgz: Upgraded to the latest XV jumbo patches,
xv-3.10a-jumbo-fix-patch-20050410 and xv-3.10a-jumbo-enh-patch-20050501.
These fix a number of format string and other possible security issues in
addition to providing many other bugfixes and enhancements.
(Thanks to Greg Roelofs)

This new PHP package fixes a PEAR XML_RPC vulnerability. Sites that use
this PEAR class should upgrade to the new PHP package, or as a minimal
fix may instead upgrade the XML_RPC PEAR class with the following command:
pear upgrade XML_RPC
(* Security fix *)

a/pkgtools-10.2.0-i486-1.tgz: In xorgsetup, don't load the freetype module
twice in the outputted xorg.conf file. Also, fix the formatting of the
xorg.conf file. Thanks to Jonathan Woithe for the fixes!
d/gcc-3.3.6-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.3.6.
d/gcc-g++-3.3.6-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.3.6.
d/gcc-g77-3.3.6-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.3.6.
d/gcc-gnat-3.3.6-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.3.6.
d/gcc-java-3.3.6-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.3.6.

kde/kdeartwork-3.4.1-i486-2.tgz: Patched to fix using screensavers from
xscreensaver >= 4.21. Thanks to Chris Linnet for the fix!
l/libtiff-3.7.3-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to libtiff-3.7.3.
n/iptables-1.3.2-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to iptables-1.3.2.

to fix problems on systems using NPTL. Thanks to Dominik L. Borkowski for
pointing out the issue.
xap/gkrellm-2.2.7-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gkrellm-2.2.7.
xap/xscreensaver-4.22-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to xscreensaver-4.22.
Fri Jul 8 13:44:53 PDT 2005
l/gnet-2.0.7-i486-3.tgz: Fixed a missing '\' in the ./configure part
of the build that was causing the --prefix to be ignored (and which
I'd formulated an unnecessary patch to work around). Thanks to orlan.
l/libexif-0.6.12-i486-2.tgz: Included a patch from CVS to fix loading
of JPEGs from certain digital cameras in GIMP. This fix has been in
CVS for months, and many people have pointed it out here. Sorry about
the delay in fixing it, but I thought for sure upstream would have
issued a new release by now (long ago, really.)
l/zlib-1.2.2-i486-2.tgz: Patched an overflow in zlib that could cause
applications using zlib to crash. The overflow does not involve user
supplied data, and therefore does not allow the execution of arbitrary
code. However, it could still be used by a remote attacker to create
a denial of service.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
xap/gimp-2.2.8-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gimp-2.2.8.
