Sat Aug  7 19:04:04 UTC 2021
a/aaa_glibc-solibs-2.33-x86_64-3.txz:  Rebuilt.
a/usbutils-014-x86_64-1.txz:  Upgraded.
ap/mariadb-10.6.4-x86_64-1.txz:  Upgraded.
ap/nvme-cli-1.15-x86_64-1.txz:  Upgraded.
l/glibc-2.33-x86_64-3.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Since glibc-2.34 makes a potentially risky change of moving all functions
  into the main library, and another inconvenient (for us) change of renaming
  the library files, we'll stick with glibc-2.33 for Slackware 15.0 and test
  the newer glibc in the next release cycle. But we'll backport the security
  fixes from glibc-2.34 with this update:
  The nameserver caching daemon (nscd), when processing a request for netgroup
  lookup, may crash due to a double-free, potentially resulting in degraded
  service or Denial of Service on the local system. Reported by Chris Schanzle.
  The mq_notify function has a potential use-after-free issue when using a
  notification type of SIGEV_THREAD and a thread attribute with a non-default
  affinity mask.
  The wordexp function may overflow the positional parameter number when
  processing the expansion resulting in a crash. Reported by Philippe Antoine.
  For more information, see:

l/glibc-i18n-2.33-x86_64-3.txz:  Rebuilt.
l/glibc-profile-2.33-x86_64-3.txz:  Rebuilt.
l/liburing-2.0-x86_64-1.txz:  Added.
  This is needed by mariadb, and provides increased performance on high speed
  devices such as NVMe.
n/dovecot-2.3.16-x86_64-1.txz:  Upgraded.
xap/blueman-2.2.2-x86_64-1.txz:  Upgraded.

An interesting addition there is liburing. A userspace library for interfacing with the kernel's io_uring system for asynchronous i/o.

What is io_uring? It's basically a ring buffer for userspace to send operations to for asynchronous queuing, with submission and completion events. It avoids context switching and copying data between kernel and userspace (because it's a shared buffer). Essentially, the end result is that the CPU can go do something else sooner.

An obstacle to using it was that applications had to interface with io_ring themselves. Now that there's a library abstraction, more applications may start using it.

MariaDB was mentioned, but also Samba has a module that can be built if liburing is present. Recent Qemu can make use of it as well.

the newer glibc in the next release cycle.
I wonder if any of the linux from scratch crowd (Nobby6?) has tried implementing glibc-2.34 and if perhaps its not as problematic a move as it might at first seem?

Just more of a curiosity, I know that staying at glibc-2.33 this close to a 15.0 release makes sense.

I tried a glibc-2.33 to 2.34 upgrade on LFS, and it seemed to go OK without any other rebuilds. It was an install > remove > ldconfig procedure with this homemade package manager. The biggest caveat is that I was using development LFS, which has symlinks for /bin, /sbin and /lib.

And I 100% agree that not pulling the trigger on glibc yet is sensible. It takes much more comprehensive testing to get the upgrade done if you're in charge of a distribution and not just "some guy." :)7

EDIT: The upgrade also worked with actual /bin, etc.

Hey everyone, long time no see! No, I wasn't out fishing. Sadly, I haven't had
a fishing rod in my hand (or even a fishing license in my wallet) for this
entire season, but there may yet be a chance for that this year. Along with the
usual suspects, I've been trying to clear out the list of things that needed
to get done in order to reach the standard of excellence demanded from a
Slackware release, and I think we've gotten it pretty close. GCC was bumped to
version 11.2.0 (because we just can't send this out 2 versions behind), and
everything was verified to build properly or fixed up so that it did. I don't
see any benefit to another public mass rebuild, so we're not going to do one.
Anyway, without further ado, here is Slackware 15.0 release candidate one.
Consider most things frozen and the focus now to be any remaining blocker bugs.
We'll more than likely take that next Plasma bugfix release, but it's soon
time to get off this treadmill. Enjoy! :-)

ap/mariadb-10.5.12-x86_64-1.txz:  Upgraded.
  Looks like we're still hitting a few regressions in the 10.6 branch. The
  most obvious one where the version reported by MariaDB is the library
  version rather than the server version (as previously reported) could be
  reverted, but this could lead to future problems as fixes for this
  change land in other projects. It seems that the safest approach at this
  time is to switch back to the most recent release from the 10.5 branch
  and keep an eye on the situation.

I upgraded glibc to 2.34 in my LFS system. It broke both firefox and falkon (qtwebengine) leaving me with only dillo and lynx for browsing. Both browsers would launch but not render anything. Since then, a fix has been found for both firefox and falkon (did the fix for FF - still need to patch and rebuild qtwebengine).

Also i couldn't build fuse2 - don't have a fix for that yet. Staying with 2.33 sounds prudent for Slack.
