Let’s show some love to 14.2

With all the excitement going on about the disruptive changes in Slackware-current (migration to the new C++ ABI caused all of Slackware to be recompiled, and then the upgrade of openssl to 1.1 caused many packages to be recompiled again), I had to spend all of my time and CPU power to keep up with […]

May ’18 security update for Adobe Flashplayer

Here’s the latest security update for Adobe’s Flash Player plugins. The version 29.0.0.171 of the flashplayer-plugin (NPAPI plugin for Mozilla based browsers) and the chromium-pepperflash-plugin (PPAPI plugin for Chromium based browsers) was released yesterday and you can find Slackware packages for it in my repository. Those of you who still can not do without Flash […]

Security update for Chromium

I have uploaded new packages for Chromium. The version 66.0.3359.139 is a security update addressing a critical bug (and some more bugs too) and you are advised to upgrade. Get the chromium-66.0.3359.139 packages for Slackware 14.2 and -current: http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/chromium/ https://slackware.nl/people/alien/slackbuilds/chromium (rsync via rsync://slackware.nl/mirrors/people/alien/slackbuilds/chromium/) Cheers, Eric

New package for qbittorrent, now based on Qt5

Not related per se to the fall-out of last weekend’s update to the icu4c and poppler packages, my qbittorrent package for slackware-current had stopped working sometime ago – caused by an update in -current of the boost package on which the torrent library depends. I needed to update qbittorrent too therefore, after having taken care […]
