There was some unrest about the most recent glibc update in the stable releases of Slackware (slackware-current excluded). Glibc was patched against a new vulnerability, CVE-2015-0235, for which the only known exploit currently is in the MTA Exim (software which is not part of Slackware) and an exploit for this vulnerability is difficult to write […]
The latest update to Slackware-current brought us a new kernel (3.14.5) and a new gcc compiler (4.8.3). This warranted a build of new multilib gcc packages. Get them from your nearest mirror. I also refreshed the “compat32” layer of packages – this is the set of converted 32-bit Slackware packages which you’ll need at a minimum, so that you will […]
There were a couple of nice updates in the Slackware-current ChangeLog today – new kernel (3.14.3), new binutils (220.127.116.11.3), new glibc (2.19) and a rebuilt gcc. Not to speak of two new packages: libnftnl and nftables, which bring a new packet filtering framework on Linux. It’s my birthday today and I took a day off to be with […]
Pat’s inquery on LinuxQuestions.org about how to “backtrack to sanity” in order to stabilize slackware-current and start laying out the next release, resulted in a kernel upgrade (3.8.8) and accompanying glibc rebuild. I built the “companion” update of the glibc multilib packages last night. They can be downloaded from: http://alien.slackbook.org/slackware/multilib/current/ (the primary server, but bandwidth-capped) […]
In Slackware-current there was an update (or rather a rebuild) of the gcc 4.8.0 compiler suite, which re-adds several header files that seem to have accidentally dropped out of the installation.I have applied the same changes to the gcc packages in my multilib repository. The rebuiltgcc-4.8.0_multilib packages can be downloaded from any of these locations […]
