PostPosted: Thu 03 Mar 2016, 21:35    Post subject: openssl 1.0.1s ready  

A reminder that there is now an openssl update to version 1.0.1s from the 'r' version installed. This is related to a security fix needed in 1.0.2f. One of the key reasons for this update is a SSLv.2 attack that uses a high security method, and weakens it to SSLv.2.The hackable server can relay credentials over a low security path. As always, MENU --> Setup --> Uppdates from slacware will do the trick. Download the 'solibs' first, then the openssl update. When finished either a shutdown/restart or reboot is needed. You may remove the /usr/docs/openssl documentation directory if you wish.

Regards
8Geee

PostPosted: Thu 10 Mar 2016, 15:18    Post subject: Upgrade fom 5.7.0
Subject description: upgrae possible
 

I am using Slacko 5.7.0 (PAE verion kernel 3.10) in a frugal install.
Reason for using 5.7.0 is that the 3.10 kernel runs on my hardware (EEEPC X101CH), not because it is PAE.

This is the original 01Micko version, that features Firefox 17 LTS (not 23).

I would like to upgrade, so my questions are:

1/ What kernel is the 2016 version using ?
2/ Can I re-use my save file ? (can I simply replace the main SFS).?

Regards,

Volhout

The 2016a version (newest) uses 3.4.82 which is i686 4g but is non-PAE.

I've never swapped sfs files, let alone PAE/non-PAE. I'll have to defer to others with experience.

Just curious what hardware doesn't play nice in the non-PAE (2016a) version?

PostPosted: Fri 11 Mar 2016, 03:51    Post subject: 3.10.x
Subject description: video hardware
 

Hi 8Geee,

The X101CH core (ATOM N2600) has a video hardware accelerator GMA3600 (intel) that is not supported in linux. The last (buggy) linux driver was released for kernel 3.0 and 3.1 (from archwiki website)

There is no real solution, except that there is a patch for the intel 915 driver and Xorg configuration for software rendering, available in linux kernels since 3.5.

In puppy land the patch was introduced in UPUP 3.8.3.1 (precise), and was available since in some releases (3.9.9 kernel in racy , 3.10 kernel in slacko). Maybe all new kernels have this patch, not sure.

A pup with this patch won't start directly to desktop, but will force to Xorgwizard, and from there it works.

Maybe I am better off in making the 2016 changes in the official 5.7.0
I have found a FF27 in the puppy/slackware14 folder. On the slackware site there may even be a newer one. But that may require more work (dpkg ?)

What other changes have you made ? ssl ? bash ? I can start with a simple one....

[EDIT] found the changes on first post[/EDIT]

I have never done this, but assume it works by extracting packages in the package manager, adding the new packages (PET's) and remastering ?
Could be a nice task for a lazy weekend ?

Thanks

The browser FF27.0.1...

The repo versions are not configured: they are set as default. There is much work to do in about:config. Newer versions of FireFox are bloated, with things like hello and wallet that need a lot of tweaking and additional security measures. As far as I'm concerned, you (or anyone else) are on their own with that new stuff.

However, I have done this work in FF27, and uploaded this . The browser is preconfigured with security leaks and data leaks pluggged to a large extent. There are add-ons installed to help. In essence, this is a modular download, as the dot mozilla file goes entirely, and directly into root. The Firefoxes in slacko puppies are usually divided into usr and root.

Video... yeah, my condolences there. What a mess. 2016 version is 3.4 so outta luck. The new 6.3 has much newer kernal options including 3.10. So maybe help there.

As you saw in 1st post of 2016a, lotsa stuff security-wise is offered/installed.

PostPosted: Mon 02 May 2016, 13:08    Post subject: secure site error  

In the "eee-version" thread there is a fix for certain web-sites that don't/won't open properly, or get a warning in FF27.

See Here

This is due to security setting in https sites. Some 'major' sites still don't play nice with privacy.

PostPosted: Mon 16 May 2016, 14:35    Post subject: OpenSSL 1.0.1T  

A reminder that Open SSL has updated to the "T" release. The solibs first, then the OpenSSL itself.

There is a bug here... in /lib the file
libssl.so.0.9.8
needs to be deleted
THEN
the libssl.so.1.0.0 file needs a right-click --> link (make sure the relative box is checked)
and named libssl.so.0.9.8

This will make a symlink from 0.9.8 to 1.0.0 files

regards
8Geee

I updated to the new "T" release the day it became available.

Do I still need to apply the delete & symlink as explained above?

Thanks, festus

Yes, its a bug in the D/L files. Essentially, the bug reinstalled the lib file that was previously symlinked. Thus we need to symlink again.

PostPosted: Sun 29 May 2016, 23:21    Post subject: XML Slackware 14.0 patch  

There are two new patches from slackware 14.0 that need attention. Both have to do with the handling of "XML" file-types used in a secure setting. Geany has a fashion to use may types of XML files, so this becomes relevant.

The two updates are libxml2 2.9.4 (from installed version 2.8.0)
and libxslt 1.1.29 (from installed 1.1.26)

The /usr/doc files can be removed.
Two symlinks are needed (one for each D/L)
byremoving the old verrsion, and linking new to old (use the 'from installed version')

Regards
8Geee

PostPosted: Mon 13 Jun 2016, 17:31    Post subject: wget security fix v.1.18  

Today, June 13, a security fix is applied to wget. The old behavior of http --> ftp security check was changed to htp --> http. This flaw is now corrected to the old behavior.

Anyone using their computer as an ftp server, or who uses ftp programs (such as FireFTP included in this distro) should upgrade wget. This one is easy, no links to fix... just D/L, shutdown, power OFF, and reboot.

Regards
8Geee

There is an update to libidn --> version 1.33. The old version is dated 2014.

A symlink patch is needed in /usr/lib
Delete libidn.so.11.6.8
Right-click libidn.so.11.6.16 and make a link (make sure 'reletive' box is checked)
Name this link libidn.so.11.6.8 by editing the "16" to "8", and click OK

The /usr/doc file (600K) for this update may be removed.

Regards
8Geee

Slacko5.7-2017A edition by 8Geee. This is a continuation and update to the 2015 and 2016 version.

The first post on page 1 is updated for the D/L link. There are significant changes. Openssl has migrated to version 1.0.2, and is supported until late 2019.

PostPosted: Tue 09 Aug 2016, 17:54    Post subject: X101CH support
Subject description: works
 

Hi 8Geee,

For the 2016 version I discussed about a 3.10 kernel to support the video in the EEE PC X101CH (Atom N2600).
Apparently this support was also added to the later 3.4 kernels.
I tried your 2017 version with the 3.4.82 kernel, and I can use the modesetting driver to get video (same way as with 3.10, manual Xorgwizard).

I copied my save file over from the 3.10 (Slacko 5.7.0) and almost everything works.

The only things that I had to correct are (maybe you are aware of these).
- I got a lot of desktop icons (my 5.7.0 custom ones, and your 5.7-2 ones) overlaying eachother.
- the "save" icon works different (or not at all). In the 5.7.0 slacko I used, immediate save followed on clicking that button. In the 2017 build it brings up a message that the save us que-ed, but it does not start immediate. Waited a few minutes, but nothing happens....

Thank you for the 2017 version of Slacko 5.7..
I will test a week or so, and it will become my mainstream if stable.

Regards,

Volhout

edit: actually, 20 manutes later still waiting for the save to occur.....

The icon spacing is fixable in PuppyPin. The default icon spacing vert. / horizontal was set up for netbooks, so they may be squashed. Usually when I use the save button there is some times a small delayy, but I've never encountered a delay over 30 seconds. Infact I just did an arbitrary save and the pause was 2 seconds.

Hmmmmm... did you adjust settings in Puppy Event Manager? Are you in pupmode=13?

Regards
8Geee
