cyrus-sasl and /dev/random

Hi there,
-current today has cyrus-sasl-2.1.26 (with a handful of patches) and a
slackbuild configure that does not set --with-devrandom -- the default
being of course /dev/random rather than /dev/urandom. This can lead to
slow startup and seemingly random pauses for some services, notably the
wheels come off OpenLDAPs "make test" as repeated startups up slapd
starve the system of "real" entropy.

The cyrus-sasl-2.1.27 RCs now set this instead to /dev/urandom, other
distros have done this for some time, including RH and Debian.

I request consideration of adding --with-devrandom=/dev/urandom to the
slackbuild configure.

Thanks & regards,
Conor.

I was under the impression that linux's /dev/urandom is too weak for cryptographic use. I'm not sure that changing the default is such a good idea.

Some time ago I read the second mentioned article. It was really good reading.
It is sorry to say, someone with enough knowledge about the topic has to decide it for me ;-)

Heh. I guess that's what I get for reading man-pages. Thanks for the reference.

The new freetype 2.8.1 uses a new subpixel rendering technique called harmony that causes font problems in programs using the skia graphics library. From what I am seeing on the mailing lists there are fixes in upstream to these programs but it may be a while before they are released. This doesn't affect Slackware's freetype since subpixel rendering is not implemented by default but I would like to request rolling back to 2.8 until these problems are worked out. You can read about the problem here

package doesn't build, because '30-urw-aliases.conf' isn't present in /fontconfig-2.12.6/conf.d/ source.

it build correctly without '30-urw-aliases.conf' in the SlackBuild.

this version has one modified font 'rules':

30-metric-aliases.conf

and one rules font removed:

'30-urw-aliases.conf'

I would welcome this upgrade also. This release fixed some annoying font issues I've been having with firefox on -current.
