Today i got a lot of email messages and when i looked at Slackware's Changelog, it was filled with lots of updates :

Fri Jul 15 00:31:30 PDT 2005
testing/packages/gcc-3.4.4/gcc-3.4.4-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.4.4.
testing/packages/gcc-3.4.4/gcc-g++-3.4.4-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.4.4.
testing/packages/gcc-3.4.4/gcc-g77-3.4.4-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.4.4.
testing/packages/gcc-3.4.4/gcc-gnat-3.4.4-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gcc-3.4.4.

Thu Jul 14 16:02:40 PDT 2005
a/devs-2.3.1-noarch-22.tgz: Added /dev/ACM* devices.
(Thanks to Manolis Tzanidakis)
a/pkgtools-10.2.0-i486-2.tgz: Merged in Jim Hawkins' fixed speed
optimizations for pkgtool.
a/udev-062-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to udev-062.
This seems to be broken with regard to ALSA devices... I'd suggest
anyone using a 2.6 kernel "chmod 644 /etc/rc.d/rc.udev" unless you want
to help locate and report bugs. It's also possible that this has
something to do with the ever-changing syntax used in the udev.rules
config file. If you find any problems that can be attributed to that,
fixes would be appreciated. For now, rc.udev will be off by default.
ap/mysql-4.1.12-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to mysql-4.1.12.
ap/texinfo-4.8-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to texinfo-4.8.
d/perl-5.8.7-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to perl-5.8.7, DBD-mysql-3.0002,
and DBI-1.48.
kde/kdebindings-3.4.1-i486-2.tgz: Recompiled against perl-5.8.7 and
kde/koffice-1.4.0a-i486-2.tgz: Recompiled against mysql-4.1.12.
kde/qt-3.3.4-i486-2.tgz: Recompiled against mysql-4.1.12.
n/bitchx-1.1-i486-2.tgz: Recompiled against mysql-4.1.12.
n/irssi-0.8.9-i486-7.tgz: Recompiled against perl-5.8.7.
n/php-4.4.0-i486-2.tgz: Recompiled against mysql-4.1.12.
n/popa3d-1.0-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to popa3d-1.0.
n/tcpdump-3.9.3-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to libpcap-0.9.3 and tcpdump-3.9.3.
This fixes an issue where an invalid BGP packet can cause tcpdump to
go into an infinate loop, effectively disabling network monitoring.
(* Security fix *)
n/vsftpd-2.0.3-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to vsftpd-2.0.3.
x/x11-6.8.2-i486-2.tgz: Reverted to the 6.8.1 version of the ATI Rage128
DRI module, as there's an undefined symbol in the newer version that
prevents it from loading and breaks direct rendering for these cards.
This bug has been reported on the freedesktop,org site but appears to
have been closed without a fix...
To observe the problem, on a system with a Rage128 card and DRI
configured, use this command: LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo
(Thanks to Andrey V. Panov for the bug report)
xap/gaim-1.4.0-i486-1.tgz: Upgraded to gaim-1.4.0.
