Ok. Thanks for the clarification.

Anyway, I've built 4.6.0 with success here. Here is a patch in case you want upgrade findutils in the future, maybe for slackware 15.0 :

Looks like PCRE was updated to 8.39 the other day, mostly crash bugs and fixing odd behaviour but there was also a fix for a buffer overflow in there.

libarchive 3.2.1 Security Release

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!to...ce/lyaOLoBI1Fs

The link above contains a link to the github issue tracker for libarchive.

Not sure of the scope to previous version or if 3.1.2 can be patched like last time. Sorry for not being much help.

On fdisk's output scrolling off the screen:

Why not just use cfdisk/cgdisk instead?

Did they ever fix the partition alignment issue with cfdisk and sector 63 (if I got it correct)?

If I recall correctly, then yes. There is a thread somewhere about this subject.

(I don't know if there's any time left, or if these patches are relevant...)

Thanks for the link.
Now this looks like a worthwhile upgrade,

Quote:
...Automatic routing improvements

In 8.0, PulseAudio started to automatically switch to another profile when the device associated with the current profile is unplugged. That seemingly smart thing had some serious unintended consequences. One typical issue was that when unplugging headphones, PulseAudio might switch to S/PDIF output and not switch back to headphones when they are plugged in again. Another issue was that HDMI in many cases appears to get temporarily unplugged when the monitor goes to sleep mode, or even when switching the refresh rate of the monitor - PulseAudio 8.0 would move audio away from the HDMI monitor in these cases and not move the audio back to HDMI when the monitor becomes available again. These issues are now fixed.

This seems to constitute well over half the complaints I've heard about PulseAudio in this forum since it was included in -current. Hopefully it's not too late to include this for 14.2.

I've built pulseaudio-9.0 using the slackware-source slackbuild script, minus all the patches, installed it, and so far, so good.

probably because of this.

I have no idea if I'm still in time but I'll try: should be nice to have sip updated to 4.18 as it's needed to build PyQt5-5.6 (we moved on version 5.6.1 of qt5 on SBo's master branch).
as qt-5.6.1 seems to work fine also with PyQt5-5.5.1 (PyQt5 is a calibre-2.x dependency) the sip upgrade is not essential (maybe it could be in the future but not now), but I have it installed here and seems safe (hope I'm not missing anything).
