Slackware 14.0 RC1 Arrived: Send Your Bug Reports
Slackware 14.0 RC1 has been announced as of today by Pat and it contains a lot of bug fixes that comes from many reports from users since Beta release. Please test them and report it here if you find new or regressions after applying the update.

Here's the latest -Current ChangeLog

Thu Aug  9 22:34:59 UTC 2012
Good hello, and happy Thursday!  Mercury went direct early yesterday morning,
and it was like the bugs started to fix themselves.  It's almost enough to get
me believing in that hocus-pocus nonsense!  So, here's a bunch of updates that
fix all of the reported issues in the beta, and we'll call this the 14.0
release candidate 1.  Still some updates needed for the top-level
documentation files, but we're clearly in the home stretch now (finally).
Test away, and report any remaining bugs!

l/boost-1.49.0-i486-3.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Linked against icu4c.  The built script was also upgraded to account for
  changes in the way boost is configured, and to only build the parts needed.
  Thanks to Heinz Wiesinger.
l/glib2-2.32.4-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded.
l/gnome-keyring-3.4.1-i486-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Fixed improper password/passphrase caching.
  For more information, see:
  (* Security fix *)
l/gtk+3-3.4.4-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded.
l/polkit-0.105-i486-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Added default policy files for udisks2 and NetworkManager events.  These
  along with GazL's xinitrc/startup script improvements seem to prevent
  ConsoleKit, PolicyKit, and D-Bus from being stupid most of the time.
  GazL's fix _should_ have been enough, but you know what they say about
  the difference between theory and practice.  :-)  The NetworkManager .pkla
  file seems to be needed anyway to allow users in the netdev group to
  modify network settings without being bothered to enter the root password.
  Thanks much to Chess Griffin.
l/qt-4.8.2-i486-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched and QtWebKit.pc to remove a false dependency on
  libwebcore.a, which is used internally at build time.
  Thanks to Fridrich von Stauffenberg and Eric Hameleers.
l/raptor2-2.0.8-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded.
  Thanks to Heinz Wiesinger.
l/vte-0.28.2-i486-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched to fix high CPU usage that can be triggered by escape sequences.
  Thanks to Mancha.
n/network-scripts-14.00-noarch-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched rc.inet1 to handle slightly changed ifconfig output.
  Thanks to Darrell Anderson.
n/openssl-1.0.1c-i486-3.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched the certwatch script to quit warning about expired certificates
  in /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt.  The script was intended to warn
  when your personal certificates are about to expire, but it trips over
  this one that bundles the CA certs.  Thanks to ponce.
n/php-5.4.5-i486-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Added support for intl module.
  Thanks to Heinz Wiesinger.
n/wireless-tools-29-i486-7.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Don't use the directory /sys/class/netdev_name/wireless/ directory to
  detect wireless cards in rc.wireless as it depends on
  CONFIG_WIRELESS_EXT_SYSFS=y in the kernel, which is deprecated and will
  be removed in future kernels.  Perhaps this was the cause of some of the
  reports of non-functional wireless interfaces?
  Thanks to Konrad Rzepecki.
x/x11-skel-7.7-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded.
  In xwmconfig, write a $HOME/.xsession in addition to $HOME/.xinitrc,
  allowing users to choose a default window manager when using XDM.
  Thanks to GazL.
x/xterm-281-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded.
  Thanks to Robby Workman.
xap/blackbox-0.70.1-i486-7.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Created a new startup script "startblackbox" called from xinitrc.blackbox
  to allow running dbus-launch within ck-session-launch.  This fixes Thunar
  device mounting without breaking XDM.  Thanks much to GazL!
xap/fluxbox-1.3.2-i486-4.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Start dbus-launch in startfluxbox.  Thanks to GazL.
xap/fvwm-2.6.5-i486-4.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Created a new startup script "startfvwm2" called from xinitrc.fvwm2 to allow
  running dbus-launch within ck-session-launch.  Thanks to GazL.
xfce/xfce4-weather-plugin-0.8.1-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded.
extra/linux-3.2.26-nosmp-sdk/*:  Rebuilt.
extra/wicd/wicd-  Rebuilt.
  Fixed some slightly incorrect permissions.
isolinux/initrd.img:  Rebuilt.
  Upgraded to Linux kernel 3.2.26.
  Replaced gptfdisk utilities with the rebuilt versions.
  Added MMC support to /sbin/probe.  Thanks to David Spencer.
usb-and-pxe-installers/usbboot.img:  Rebuilt.
  Upgraded to Linux kernel 3.2.26.
  Replaced gptfdisk utilities with the rebuilt versions.
  Added MMC support to /sbin/probe.  Thanks to David Spencer.

Ain't hit my mirrors yet tho.
BTW Willy, thanks for the slackbuilds.
I would have never got digikam working on -Current without them.

willysr 08-09-2012 07:59 PM

Yes, it just hit the primary mirror, so it takes time to propagate to other mirror site :)
glad the SlackBuild working. BTW, i have updated them to 2.8.0 just in case you are interested to build digiKam 2.8.0

zbreaker 08-09-2012 08:30 PM

Wow..massive cool update. Will wait a day for mirror syncing. 14 is almost upon us:)

TommyC7 08-09-2012 09:24 PM

Another quick update:

Fri Aug 10 01:32:48 UTC 2012
n/wireless-tools-29-x86_64-8.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Fix comparison where a network interface is not wireless.

2.8.0 rolled off perfect!
Thanks again! :)

Thanks, Pat and the entire team for all the hard work to reach RC1. This is a great set of updates and I can't wait for the release of 14.0!

apeitheo 08-10-2012 12:48 AM

Besides two Xfce bugs (nothing Pat can do about that), everything's running smoothly. :)

ttk 08-10-2012 01:47 AM

Downloading now .. will shake the tree and see what falls out.

Does anyone know if pat + friends use any regression- or integration-tests for prospective releases? It'd be nice to have access to such.

zerouno 08-10-2012 03:07 AM

Bug in ChangeLog.txt :-)


should be

n/ModemManager- Upgraded.

as in x86_64

I dont know if slackpkg works without "Upgraded" text.

Bertman123 08-10-2012 05:35 AM

Awesome!! Can't wait to try out 14 when it's released!!

_GArik_ 08-10-2012 06:22 AM

btrfs-progs is still 16 month old :/ Really need this one updated to make btrfs usable in Slackware.

hitest 08-10-2012 07:24 AM

Many thanks to Pat and the entire Slackware team. Updating now. :)

CTM 08-10-2012 07:32 AM

Any chance of a bump for mpg123 to 1.14.4 before release, please? :)

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 08:33 AM.
