More Flash fixes in November

After last week’s updates by Adobe, addressing new vulnerabilities in their Flash Player plugins, today we have another bugfix release. That’s faster than I had anticipated. Luckily I was alerted by a dutch news site so I could quickly wrap the new Flash binaries into Slackware packages for your consumption. The plugin for the Chromium browser (chromium-pepperflash-plugin) […]

Chromium 54 packages

A new release of the Chromium source code was made available earlier this week. For me this is the first Chromium 54 package and unfortunately the SlackBuild script needed a lot of rework. Google is quite “dynamic” when it comes to developing and discarding in-house tools. The change from “gyp” to “gn” to generate the “ninja” makefiles was […]

Security updates: multilib and flash

Multilib A mountain of security fixes landed in Slackware this week. Many of these updated packages have a multilib equivalent, so today I have updated my multilib repository for Slackware releases 13.37 and newer. New to multilib or don’t know what it is all about? Read the multilib article found in the Slackware Documentation Project. Download the new multilib […]

New releases are available for Adobe’s Flash Player plugins. They are accompanied by Flash player  security bulletin APSB16-29. The updated plugin for the Chromium browser (chromium-pepperflash-plugin) has the version number 23.0.0.162 while the plugin for Mozilla browsers (flashplayer-plugin) is now at version 11.2.202.635 (both 64bit and 32bit versions, remember). Slackware packages for these Flash plugins are available for download & install in the following […]

LibreOffice 5.2.1 for slackware-current

The upgraded boost package in slackware-current last week had broken LibreOffice’s “localc” program. Which is typical because I compile LibreOffice with a “–without-system-boost” flag. Apparently a dependency on the system’s boost libraries gets added nevertheless. Patches to cure this behaviour are very welcome! Thus it became necessary to compile new packages for slackware-current. Co-incidentally there was also […]
