Already included.

And on that note, consider the kernel golden. No more version bumps will be accepted unless they fix important bugs, and other bugs must be close to showstoppers for consideration at this point. I passed on "file" since it's a complex program that has been known to introduce regressions in the past and nobody could point to an important bug that's fixed by the latest version. Cheers!

Pat, the tmux 2.2 package in /testing is missing the terminfo entries.

Are there any planned packages for /testing currently before 14.2 is released?

Maybe these?

grub-2.02~beta3
mesa-12.0.0-rc3
linux-4.6.2 (config)

The 4.6 .configs in /testing now will work fine.

fdisk menus are chopped short

When booting from a Slackware64-current install DVD and running fdisk, I type in 'm' to display the available fdisk commands.

Not all of the commands show on my screen. Some of them scroll off the top...

My screen is not able to catch all of the lines of output.

What I see is something like this:

Code:
   l   list known partition types
   n   add a new partition
   p   print the partition table
   t   change a partition type
   v   verify the partition table
   i   print information about a partition

  Misc
   m   print this menu
   u   change display/entry units
   x   extra functionality (experts only)

  Script
   I   load disk layout from sfdisk script file
   O   dump disk layout to sfdisk script file

  Save & Exit
   w   write table to disk and exit
   q   quit without saving changes

  Create a new label
   g   create a new empty GPT partition table
   G   create a new empty SGI (IRIX) partition table
   o   create a new empty DOS partition table
   s   create a new empty Sun partition table


Command (m for help):
But what I want to see is this:
Code:
Help:

  DOS (MBR)
   a   toggle a bootable flag
   b   edit nested BSD disklabel
   c   toggle the dos compatibility flag

  Generic
   d   delete a partition
   F   list free unpartitioned space
   l   list known partition types
   n   add a new partition
   p   print the partition table
   t   change a partition type
   v   verify the partition table
   i   print information about a partition

  Misc
   m   print this menu
   u   change display/entry units
   x   extra functionality (experts only)

  Script
   I   load disk layout from sfdisk script file
   O   dump disk layout to sfdisk script file

  Save & Exit
   w   write table to disk and exit
   q   quit without saving changes

  Create a new label
   g   create a new empty GPT partition table
   G   create a new empty SGI (IRIX) partition table
   o   create a new empty DOS partition table
   s   create a new empty Sun partition table


Command (m for help):
If I were new to fdisk, this would be a problem...

Shift+PgUp should allow you to scroll up with the terminal and see anything that went off screen (as long as it is still within the terminal's buffer (I think generally 500 lines)).

Thanks, I like this solution as it works for any program not just fdisk and it requires no code changes.

Shift+PageDown works to scroll down too. But how does a new user know this?

Maybe this information can be put in one of the startup screens...

While I agree that many may not know this really helpful feature, there's a lot of other relatively unknown features that many should probably know. This would likely lead to what would eventually become a massive document with all the cool nifty features that are available. Personally, I wouldn't know where to draw the line...

Hello,

Is there any reason to not upgrade findutils to version 4.6.0 ?

I ask for this because find (4.4.2) emits a warning as below unless I pass the option -noleaf :

Code:
$ find / -iname lilo.conf
/etc/lilo.conf
WARNING: Hard link count is wrong for `/proc/fs' (saw only st_nlink=8 but we already saw 6 subdirectories): this may 
be a bug in your file system driver. Automatically turning on find's -noleaf option. Earlier results may have failed 
to include directories that should have been searched.

$ find / -iname lilo.conf -noleaf 
/etc/lilo.conf
Notes:
* find 4.6.0 does not emit this warning, even when the option -noleaf is not used.

* I found this bug report in which that kind of issue is reported.

I've had a SlackBuild for this here since it came out, but it hits an error in the docs and the compile fails. Anyway, it's a little too late to take a chance on breaking find to try to eliminate a warning.
