		removed old battery monitor setup script, 
		now included in /xap/cbatticon package (script called "setBatMon")

	ap/xautolock-p15-i686-1AL.txz	
		Run from icewm startup if on a laptop.
		Turns off screen after period of idle.
		Includes script to manuipulate (by user) what the idle time period
		before screen off... is in menu for spacefm desktop (right-click)

	xap/cbatticon-git20120107-i686-2AL.txz
		Uodated setBatMon script, which sets up battery monitor for laptops,
		and now also sets up xautolock to be called by icewm on startup,

	xap/spacefm-0.8.2-i686-6AL.txz	
		Adds "Set Screen Off Timer" to desktop menu,
		allows laptop users to set idle time to turn off the screen.
		Used custom xautolock with call to "xset dpms force off",
		so it should shut off the backlight and extend battery time.
		This can vary on different laptops, however, as some have off 
		settings controlled via the bios... if you don't need to use the 
		"Set Screen Off Timer" -- simply set it to "0" and it will not be used.

		(sometimes) so I keep my eyes on update. Pcmanfm has only had 
		translation updates since last GIT download, but libfm had a couple 
		other code tweaks -- so I recompiled. Also set preferences a bit 
		more to my liking.

	Default text editor and image viewer changed.
	
	Viewnior is faster, lighter, smaller and is not 
	giving me the color-"correcting" grief that geeqie was...
	(I don't know if it compensated for my monitor adjustment or 
	what geeqie was doing, but it was oversaturating everything.)
	
	Scite was always good, and now printing seems to be working,
	and more importantly, copy and paste in and out of application 
	works, which did not with geany. And by this day and age -- if a 
	basic functionality won't work in Linux, it's got to go. Sorry 
	Geany fans, I put up with the annoyance for a year...
	
	Removed:
		geeqie
		geany
		
	Added:
		xap/viewnior-1.1-i486-1AL.txz
		xap/scite-2.25-i486-1AL.txz

	l/menu-cache-0.3.2-i486-2AL.txz
		Edited source to generate menu-building to
		lxde-applications.menu 

	xap/pcmanfm-20110422-i486-3AL.txz
		"New Window" now opens a new window with the current directory
		(not always the home directory, as before.)
		
		And with that I seem to have taken care of all my pet peeves -- 
		I will test and if all goes well will update to 13.37 release.

		Added script/.desktop file "hack" to enable running
		a shell script from within pcmanfm (right-click and you'll
		see "Script Launcher" available.) Opens in an xterm to
		show output, if available, and let you know if there are errors,
		xterm closes when complete.

	  This new driver requires KMS, which is set by default in the new kernel.
	  Otherwise, create /etc/modprobe.d/radeon.conf with this content:
		options radeon modeset=1
	  Also, the kernel should be booted with vga=normal.
	  Problems have been observed when trying to use KMS after starting a VESA
	  framebuffer console.  Sorry about the penguins.

		NOTE: If you look at the ChangeSlack.txt file you will notice that the
		new nouveau driver is in main -- but testing with my TNT2-based board 
		crashes. Only  option for old TNT, TNT2, GeForce2 boards seems to be 
		the old nv driver. (Support from nvidia-proprietary for newer kernels 
		does not work either for these older nvidia chipsets.)
		Because of this failing in the new nouveau driver, I have left it 
		blacklisted. If you have a newer nvidia card, simply install the 
		nvidia-proprietary driver. (Instructions are in the "getting started"
		folder on your desktop), or uninstall the xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist,
		and install the xf86-video-nouveau-8bb82312, located in the repos 
		under CD2.

			Some better script fonts, a few deletions, a few other 
			additions. Not quite graphical shock and awe, but certainly 
			mild suprise and entertainment:) Great for posters, fliers
			and web graphics when you are using the illustrious GIMP.

		a/udev-153-i486-2AL.txz
			Repackaged, removing nouveau from blacklist,
			as this is taken care of by xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist 
			package from slackware. Seems a bit awkward, but keeping 
			as close to standard Slackware as possible keeps things 
			easier to maintain. And it gets the job done, so...

Tuesday, 09/07/2010

	CD2/inkscape/inkscape-r22760-i486-1AL.txz
		Updated and recompiled.
		Needed to be recompiled due to new imagemagick
	

Monday, 09/06/2010

		xap/chromium-7.0.517.0_58647-i486-1AL.txz
			Updated. Includes screenshot plugin,
			because imagemagick, updated or not, has trouble taking
			custom-sized screenshots on Chrome. Plugin has some nice 
			features - notably, you can overlay text, arrows and circles 
			then save. 


Sunday, 09/05/2010
		xap/imagemagick-6.6.4_0-i486-1AL.txz
			Updated. Fixes import (user selected areas were black)
			when using "Take screenshot" in graphics menu.



Saturday, 09/04/2010

		xap/chromium-7.0.515.0_58533-i486-1AL.txz
			Updated. TRYING to get PDFs to load via the Google Doc extension,
			and it seems to be working.
			Chromium source does not come with the libpdf.so to enable the 
			internal plugin -- and although some folks use the library distributed 
			with the chrome packages, that risks defeating the goal of stability I 
			persue by compiling Chromium directly on Absolute.

13.1.42 released  --  Friday, 09/03/2010

Wednesday, 09/01/2010

		xap/alsamixer-qt4-0.4.1-i486-1AL.txz
			Replaces alsamixergui
			
		xap/absVolume-6.0-i486-1AL.txz
			Set to control master volume (not PCM -- as this gave 
			me headaches on nvidia hdmi.) Also set default mixer 
			application to new alsamixer-qt4.
			
		a/icewm-1.2.37-i486-9jAL.txz
			Put add/remove programs near top of root menu.
			Kept forgetting to do this for a long time as digging for it
			in menu was very irksome...
			
		xap/chromium-7.0.513.0_58167-i486-1AL.txz
			Updated. Tried to get rid of the problem of the PDF-google docs viewer
			downloading instead of opening PDF in the browser. No pure joy, yet.
			I find I need to refresh the page with the PDF link, then click the 
			link -- and at last the extension will work correctly. Best I can do for 
			now. But means refreshing page each time I want to click a link to 
			open a PDF in Chromium.

	x/xorg-server-1.7.7-i486-2.txz
  		Security Fix, rebuilt.
		Patched to prevent overwriting stack memory and bypassing security mechanisms
  		on systems that use a 2.6 Linux kernel -- some kernel versions have
		been fixed already, but kernel Slackware continues to use is not fixed, 
		so they patched Xorg to prevent the security issue.
		
	xap/chromium-7.0.511.0_58056-i486-1AL.txz

			making things easy for myself but I re-install to test

			me. If you don't use/like, just delete the extension.

Tuesday, 07/06/2010

	xap/absPieChart-1.0-i486-1AL.txz
		QT3-based pie chart generator put back into Graphics menu
		(less than 60k, what the heck...)
		
	CD2/pdfedit-0.4.5-i486-1AL.txz
		Added to CD2
			Another QT3 app we can use due to inclusion of qt3-compat 
			libs (used for K3B)
			
	CD2/internet/frostwire-4.20.6-noarch-1AL.txz
		Updated.
		
	CD2/scribus/scribus-1.3.6-i486-1AL.txz
		Updated
	
	-------------------------------------------------------------------
	The following were updated for new menu-adding feature for icewm.
	If already installed in absolute-13.1.2, there is no need to update.
	I will continue to update all packages on CD2 that have old icewm 
	entries. Lot of old games to go through -- trying to make as clean 
	and lean as possible.
	-------------------------------------------------------------------
	
	CD2/internet/pidgin-2.6.6-i486-2AL.txz	
		Updated (just for menu-item change, no functional difference.)

----------------------------------------------------------


Saturday, 07/03/2010

		a/etc-13.1.2-i486-2AL.txz
			updated Multimedia Installer
			(a url needed to be updated, old link was dead)



Friday, 07/02/2010

	CD2/internet/firefox-3.6.6-i686-1AL.txz
		Updated. Still on CD2, as you can see.
		
		For those still unhappy about switch from Firefox to Chrome as
		default browser, I would like to note that the nice feature of 
		drag-N-drop of file from browser (such as list in an ftp directory) 
		directly to a ROX-Filer window (automatically uses wget to download the 
		file there) WORKS PROPERLY with Chrome, but is still broken in Firefox, 
		for just over a year now. At one time I had hacked ROX to make it work, 
		but this is a known, longstanding error in Firefox code.
		
		The proper URL parsing in Chrome (see above), frequent updates, lower 
		memory usage and fast rendering were reasons for the browser switch. 
		Expect 13.1.2 release as soon as last few tests and uploads are complete.
		
		
	xap/rox_filer-2.10.0-i486-1dAL.txz
		Updated to have ROX Archiver handle unpacking .deb files 
		(changed Archive.desktop as well as adding mime type to rox
		 config files, so both ROX and Pcmanfm will unpack .deb files)
		 
		 
	xap/google-chrome-6.0.443.0-i486-2AL.txz
		Updated - just to eliminate "make default browser" prompt on first run.
	
	
	Plus the following updated to mirror Slackware versions:
	
		a/cups-1.4.4-i486-1AL.txz:  Upgraded.
		ap/alsa-utils-1.0.23-i486-2.txz:  Rebuilt.

		CD2/internet/seamonkey-solibs-2.0.5-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded.



Friday, 06/25/2010

	xap/gecko-mediaplayer-0.9.9.2-i486-2AL.txz
		Updated. Build using xulrunner-1.9.2

	xap/google-chrome-6.0.443.0-i486-1AL.txz
		Rebuilt from source - 
		patched to pull gecko-mediaplayer out of blacklist 
		which had been hardcoded in by Google team due to crashing.
		During the tests on Absolute, no crashes occurred.
		So let's watch videos!



Sunday, 06/20/2010

		Added. Used to compile google-chrome on Absolute
		
	l/mozilla-nss-3.12.4-i486-1AL.txz
		Replace seamonkey-solibs 
		(put solibs on CD2, in case wanted)
		Also used in chrome compile
		
	xap/google-chrome-r50214-i486-1AL.txz
		Replaces Firefox
		Firefox on CD2/internet
		Compile of Chrome on Absolute eliminates crashing on 
		upload of jpegs (originally due to binary compiled against 
		older libjpeg) Chrome is now stable and faster.
		NOTE: if you want to import old firefox bookmarks,
		save your "/home/username/.mozilla" folder. This allows 
		Chrome to import them easily -- saves a lot of trouble.
	
	CD2/education/qstardict-0.13.1-i486-1AL.txz	
		Moved to CD2
		
	l/wxPython-2.8.11.0-i486-1AL.txz
		Updates and replaces wxGTK.
		Alows easy install of wxPython apps,
		including ftpcube, which I am TESTING to replace gftp
		(chime in if you see a problem...)
		
	xap/avidemux-2.5.2-i486-4AL.txz

		Updated again, setting default browser to chrome.
		



Saturday, 06/12/2010
	
	a/etc-13.1.1-i486-4AL.txz
		Updated to include new "/usr/local/sbin/addiceitem" 
		script To easily update icewm menu on the fly when 
		adding new applications. Avoids all the XDG-menu stuff.
		CD2 and later base install apps will be updated to use this
		script, so base icewm package will have a minimal menu, free 
		of clutter.Since base /xap packages will eventually include 
		use of the script, icewm package is moved to /a -- so the 
		menu-changing files will have a menu to change :)
		
		

Thursday, 06/10/2010


	xap/flash_plugin-10.1.53.64-i386-1AL.txz
		Updated for security

	  libraries for fxbun as well as wxGTK for the CHM viewer.)

	* Inkscape moved to CD2 to save space.
	  Technically it "fit" into 700mb, but for easier distribution we 
	  should target a size of about 10mb less than a full CD.

		Added (for jokosher)
	
	CD2/GoogleEarth
		Can't redistribute, but installer script (actually a SlackBuild) 
		with instructions are in CD2/GoogleEarth folder. Just unpack and 
		follow simple instructions, as the script will download, build the 
		package and leave in in /tmp folder for you to install at your leisure.

	xap/osmo-0.2.8-i486-1AL
		This calendar/planner takes the place of iCal
		(the older TK-based app) Many more featuress and nicer looking. 
		More in tune with modern UI, does ical calendars and should soon 
		be able to handle SyncML based devices.
		
	l/libical-0.43-i486-1AL
		To facillitate ical support in the new PIM, osmo.
	
	l/libnotify-0.4.5-i486-1AL
		Added in support of osmo,  had also been optional for several other apps
		on previous compiles, so it will come in handy.
	
	xap/mhwaveedit-1.4.16-i486-1AL
		Simple wave/audio editor and recorder. 
		CAn do the simple jobs and can manage several effects 
		via ladspa, which has been added in support.
		
	l/ladspa-1.13-i686-3AL
		Added in support of mhwaveedit
		
	xap/pcmanfm-0.5.0-i486-9qAL

		as well as new script "infont" to install a ttf font automatically.
		
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7rAL
		Changed calendar PIM option to osmo.
		Eliminated choice in menu of sunbird or ical. 
		Very pleased with osmo.
		
	ap/slacktrack-2.06-i486-1
		Was recently used to compile the updated linuxdoc-tools. 
		Since it is small and usefule, and some folks may want to play, 
		I put it onto the main install.
		
	a/etc-13.0.3-i486-2AL
		Updated scripts, aded icons to pixmaps.
		
	xap/gtk-engines-2.18.3-i486-3AL

Tuesday 10/06/2009

	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7qAL
		Updated - cleaned up themes, taking out extra icons and fonts.
		Also updated configuration menu.
		
	xap/xarchiver-0.5.2-i486-2AL
		Updated to handle the txz files if desired
		(although rox-archive is the default handler)
		
	CD2:
	linuxwacom-0.8.4.2-i486-1AL
		Updated. Constantly trying to improve my old Bamboo!
		
		

Sunday 10/04/2009

	xap/inkscape-0.47pre3-i486-1AL
		Updated and added to Absolute base install.
		Only customization is removal of SVG "tutorials", and addition of 
		a local version of the manual (which shows up in new "Docummentation" 
		application.)

	l/gsl-1.12-i486-1AL
	l/lxml-2.2.2-i486-1AL	
		Both added to base install in support of inkscape.	
		
	homebank-4.0.2-i486-1AL
		Moved to CD2, to make room for inkscape
		
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7pAL
		Updated. Menu now does NOT include individual documentation items -- 
		a single entry for a small pyGtk app (Documentation.py) is taking 
		that over. It looks for HTML documentation in /usr/doc folders and 
		lists what is available. Now we no loger have to update icewm menus 
		every time we add/delete a document.
	
	a/etc-13.0.3-i486-1AL
		Updated. Added Documentation.py,
		updated version to 13.0.3
	
	xap/rox_filer-2.9-i486-2eAL
		Updated Archive.desktop so that the archiver application defaults to 
		handling RPM packages. Xarchiver kept choking on them (giving unsupported
		file type error -- and searching the code I could not figure out why,
		and svn (r25) was badly broken at the moment so I switched the handling...
		
	xap/pcmanfm-0.5.0-i486-9pAL
		Updated defaults.list to reflect RPM handling change.
		
	xap/brasero-2.26.0-i486-2AL
		Reverted to the 2.26 version, with a bit of package tweaking.
		2.28 had drive/media detection problems. Conflict with HAL?

		Recompiled.
		
	xap/qtpfsgui-1.9.3-i486-1AL
		HDR (High Dynamic range) imaging application.
		Bit awkward to learn the program "flow", but I have 
		had good results pulling in RAW, bracketed images from 
		my Olympus and combining them for much greater details 
		in image highs and lows. If you are interested in photography,
		you will want to play with this...
		
	xap/imagemagick-6.5.6.5-i486-1AL
		Updated. Compiled with added support for fftw and HDRI.
		(Not sure how to USE this functionality via imagemagick yet -- 
		but I have a feeling I will soon.)
		
		Also updated the imagemagick documentation on CD2.
	
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7oAL
		Updated menu to include gtpfsgui
		(HDRI imaging)

Saturday, 09/26/2009

	xap/gtk-engines-2.18.3-i486-2AL
		Themes updated. All but thin black are now resizable from 
		top of titlebar (a couple were not, originally.) Also cleaned up 
		unused portions of RC files and added some themes. Now includes
		8 "full spectrum" themes -- ones that have componants in 
		gtk/icewm/pcmanfm (background) and rox-filer.
	
	a/etc-13.0.2-i486-2AL
		Updated settheme script to properly set rox-filer background, also 
		added code to script to accommodate new themes (8 total) as well as 
		the new wallpapers.

		Updated. Added additional themes.
		
	xap/rox_filer-2.9-i486-2dAL
		Added additional backgrounds for use with themes.
	
	xap/firefox-3.5.3-i686-2AL
		Just a preferences tweak, added pcmanfm to mimetypes.rdf insomuch 
		that will allow users to peek where files were downloaded to from 
		the downloads dialog.
		
		

Friday, 09/25/2009
	xap/rox_filer-2.9-i486-2cAL
		Fix. Corrected permissions setting on:

----------------------------------------------------------
13.0.2 released
----------------------------------------------------------


Thursday, 09/24/2009
	
	xap/brasero-2.26.0-i486-1AL
		Added. Replaces K3B and eliminates need for KDE libs as well 
		as arts packages. I know we all like k3b a bit better, but 
		it takes too many packages and to much effort to support one 
		application. GST plugins were added in support (audio burning 
		and others) and they will also be helpful for those who like to 
		compile totem and other multimedia related GTK apps.
	
	xap/gtk-engines-2.18.3-i486-1AL
		Added. GTK theme engines, somewhat limited but diverse: 
		clearlooks, warm, gray and black themes.
	
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7lAL
		Updated. Themes straightened out, matching GTK themes.
	
	xap/rox_filer-2.9-i486-2bAL
		Recompiled without "root" warnings as well as adding a couple 
		backgrounds for use in various themes.
		
	xap/pcmanfm-0.5.0-i486-9oAL
		Recompiled with desktop right-click menu including GTK theme-setting
		utility.
		
	a/halevt-0.1.5-i486-3AL
		Updated for insertion of blank CDs to open Brasero
		
	a/etc-13.0.2-i486-1AL
		Updated set system font script, 
		aded settheme script - this is called by new gtk-chtheme 
		customized application. Since GTK engines are now installed, this 
		utility can be used to change the theme, and calls script that changes 
		icewm theme, desktop background of pcmanfm, as well as window background 
		in ROX-Filer. Also added backgrounds.
		
	l/gstreamer-0.10.24-i486-1AL
		updated
	l/gst-plugins-base-0.10.24-i486-1AL
		updated
	l/gst-plugins-good-0.10.16-i486-1AL

	K3B, kdelibs, kdemutimedia and arts have all been removed.
	
	


Friday, 09/18/2009
	xap/absVolume-5.1-i486-1AL

		Quick mute by hitting SPACE bar.
		Help available via "h" or "F1"
		About dialog on "a"	
	
	
Thursday, 09/17/2009

13.0.1 released
----------------------------------------------------------

Saturday, 09/12/2009 (2)

	ap/gdm-2.20.7-i486-6bAL
		Edited /etc/X11/gdm/PostSession/Default adding line:
		killall -9 halevt 2>/dev/null
		to get rid of halevt daemon running between user logins.

	a/halevt-0.1.5-i486-2AL
		Updated to include the scripts in /usr/local/bin that
		pactually play cd/dvd and open cameras. Forgot on 
		first build :( 
					
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7kAL
		Needed to build full parameter command line for halevt when run as root:
		/usr/bin/halevt -u root -g root -c /etc/halevt/config.xml -p -
		Including config path and no PID, not sure why but this makes it work.
		(Change one parameter you have to list them all?)
		


Saturday, 09/12/2009

	a/halevt-0.1.5-i486-1AL
		Device event daemon to execute scripts.
			Replaces ivman. Runs dialog to play or rip 
			audio CDs and DVD videos, as well as attempting to 
			open PTP cameras. 
	
	l/boolstuff-0.1.12-i486-1AL
		c++ lib for use with booean expressions.
		Added in support of halevt.

	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7jAL
		Startup updated, changes from ivman to halevt.
		
	a/etc-13.0.1-i486-1AL
		Bugfix - add user python script had a vestigal import
		to python-xdialog, which was recently removed.
		At top of script (/usr/local/sbin/absAdduser.py)
		take out the "xdialog" import.
		
		Also, several files changed to accommodate halevt as 
		ivman replacement. /etc/group, /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow
		/usr/local/sbin/absServices.py, .bash_logout
		
	a/pkgtools-13.0.1-noarch-1AL
		Updated setup.services not to list hplip.
		
		

Thursday, 09/10/2009
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7iAL
		Updated. Added winoptions lines to ignore XMMS equalizer and 
		playlist so that extra icons are not added to the system tray.
		To skip the update you can edit the file:
		/usr/share/icewm/winoptions
		Adding the lines:
		XMMS_Equalizer.tray: Ignore
		XMMS_Playlist.tray: Ignore

13.0 release
----------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday, 09/09/2009

	l/seamonkey-solibs-1.1.18-i486-1
		Updated: Security Fix
		
	l/libnl-1.1-i486-1
		Added. Needed for wpa_supplicant if using WPA security for wireless
		Thanks to afoanu for the heads up at the forum.
		
	l/cairo-1.8.8-i486-1AL
		Updated
	l/cairomm-1.8.2-i486-1AL
		Updated
	l/pycairo-1.8.8-i486-1AL
		Updated
		
	n/wicd-1.6.2.2-i486-1AL
		Updated. This version eliminates our need for the essid patch
		we used in 1.6.1. (related to hidden networks as mentioned in 
		Slack changelog.)
	
	CD2:
	seamonkey-1.1.18-i486-1
		Updated: Security Fix
		
	qtscriptgenerator-0.1.0-i486-1
		Added. Not sure what uses it, but Slack added it to vbase install, 
		so I compiled and put into CD2/development



Thursday, 09/03/2009
	xap/openoffice.org-3.1.1_en_US-i586-1AL
		Upgraded. This one built from RPMs, skipped over KDE and 
		Gnome-compatability stuff. Also substituted DejaVu fonts as
		defaults in place of Liberation fonts, because they just look 
		a lot better. I did, however, leave the Liberation fonts in the 
		install for sharing compatability with other users of OO.
		
	d/pyzenity-1.4-inoarch-1AL
		Due to deprecated code thoughout the python-xdislog code,
		I re-wrote several python scripts, converting a couple to simple shell
		scripts and others now use py-zenity dialogs instead of py-xdialog.
		These scripts are in teh updated a/etc package.
		
	a/etc-13.0.rc5-i486-2AL
		As mentioned above, several scripts re-written.
		setDate.py also edit and now also allows users to change clock.
		(Icewm allows this on right-click of time on taskbar -- this is 
		because of the patched icewm code.The "Clockcommand" you can set in 
		the icewm preference file controls the LEFT mouse click.)
		
	xap/linHDD-0.9-i486-1AL
		Updated. Fixed code to properly show root drive information
		(percentage used). Also updated deprecated popen2 with subprocess,
		so deprecation warnings are gone.
		
	
Monday, 08/31/2009
	
	xap/abscontrolpanel-1.0.0-noarch-5AL.txz
		Updated "Applications" to include ical run-at-startup selection.
	
	l/librsvg-2.26.0-i486-3AL
		Patched to properly save files from viewer as well as Mozilla plugin
		
		
	CD2----------
		modules
			ndiswrapper-1.55_2.6.29.6_abs-i486-1AL
			linuxwacom-0.8.4-i486-1AL
				Got my Bamboo working!
		development
			valgrind-3.5.0-i486-1AL
				Added. Used to find librsvg error to save files 
				with the viewer/plugin...
		
	
		
Saturday, 08/29/2009

	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7jAL
		After several tweaks and recompiles we have a new version with
		new settings menu item, choosing the calendar app to be ical 
		or Sunbird (Sunbird on CD2 in repository). Ical can be run on 
		system startup with small icon is system tray.

	xap/ical-2.3.3-i486-1AL
		Added. Replaces gdeskcal.
		Patches listed in /usr/doc/ical. Can be run with icewm startup
		for use with reminder alerts if so desired. Updated icewm to 
		run this when chosen -- there is a selecteor for this in menu 
		as well as the control panel.
		
	xap/k3b-r948463-i486-1AL
		Working. Eliminated problems with Absolute's earlier builds
		that had trouble closing multi-session disks.
	

	KERNEL RECOMPILED:

		kernel-firmware-2.6.29.6-noarch-2.txz
		kernel-huge-smp-2.6.29.6_smp-i686-2.txz
		kernel-modules-smp-2.6.29.6_smp-i686-2.txz
		kernel-source-2.6.29.6_smp-noarch-2AL.txz

		This was done as final prep for Absolute 13.0. 
		I skip recompiles during development as this wastes scads of time...
		but the final release needed a few tweaks: 
			Tickless/High-res timers (for those laptop batteries)
			Voluntary Pre-emptive (desktop)
		And for speed/size:
			Pulled virtualization
			Dropped filesystem support for JFS, XFS. Btrfs and EXT2.
			(Nothing trims a kernel down faster than dropping filesystem 
			support.) Happy to note that cdrom/ntfs/USB-HID are now standard
			on Slackware huge, so we no longer have to set those in the custom 
			kernel.
	
	
Monday, 08/24/2009

	KERNEL UPDATED
		http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-2692
		Security Patch
		
	a/sysvinit-scripts-1.2-noarch-30bAL
		Updated to better clear out /tmp upon reboots

	xap/abiword-rev27623-i486-1AL
		Updated to latest revision to get printing to work.
		Recent gnome-print related updates broke printing from AbiWord;
		so although there may be some new glitches with the version of 
		AbiWord we include here, the printing is working.
	
	xap/hardinfo-0.5.1-i486-1AL
		Replaces the old lshw script/utility that would print out 
		hardware information. This utility is much easier to read, more
		detailed and includes benchmarking capabilities.
		
	xap/lxtask-0.1-i486-1AL
		Task Manager. Simpler and friendlier than older htop utility,
		but htop is still very useful and very small (can run over an ssh 
		connection, runs in console and is only about 30k) -- so both are 
		included.

	xap/abscontrolpanel-1.0.0-noarch-4AL
		Updated to reflect use of added Task Manager and new Hardware 
		information utility.
		
	y/sudoku-savant-1.2.1-i486-1AL
		New light, crisp Sudoku game added.
		
	xap/linHDD-0.8-i486-1AL
		Updated with ability to format as ext4, included comments and hints for 
		formatting USB sticks, gave it an icon.
		
	xap/thunderbird-2.0.0.23-i686-1AL
		Updated. Security Fix.
		
	xap/pidgin-2.5.9-i486-1
		Updated. Security Fix.
		
	xap/pcmanfm-0.5.0-i486-9lAL
		Toolbar trimmed down (less redundency from menu items) so that path 
		shows more easily. But, did add icon/tool item to open with ROX-Filer.
		This was done in part because thumbnail images are now turned off by 
		default for pcmanfm -- due to continuing errors and crashes when viewing 
		folders with thumbnails of images that are being edited.
		New item makes viewing with ROX quicker, and speed of viewing and changing
		thumbnail size with ROX-Filer was always faster and easier.
		
		

Sunday, 08/09/2009
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7gAL
		Themes updated
	
	l/librsvg-2.26.0-i486-2AL	
		recompiled with croco
		
	a/etc-13.0.rc4-noarch-2AL
		Funky wallpaper
		


--------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 13.0.rc4 release
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Friday, 08/07/2009

	xap/firefox-3.5.2-i686-2AL
		SVG-rendering lockups led to turning OFF svg-enable
		in preferences. Happily enough, rsvg-view picks this up
		and renders within page and gives better choices to save/convert
		as well as the fact that it uses much less memory and does not freeze. 
		You do NOT need to list rsvg-view as a helper application unless you 
		want to open the SVGs OUTSIDE the browser window.
		
		
	n/network-scripts-13.0-noarch-1AL
		Slackware updated to add comments to rc.inet1.conf
		This means the rc.wicd Absolute uses was also updated to keep pace
		(as the startup script for wicd on Absolute checks settings 
		in inet1.conf and clears them if switching to wireless.)
		
	a/etc-13.0.rc4-noarch-1AL
		Version bump
		
	n/wicd-1.6.2-i486-2AL
		Startup script (/etc/rc.d/rc.wicd) updated to reflect new Slackware 
		comments in inet1.conf file.
	
	d/subversion-1.6.4-i486-1
		Upgraded. (* Security fix *)
	  
	l/apr-1.3.8-i486-1.txz:  
		Upgraded (* Security fix *)

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 13.0.rc3 release
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday, 08/04/2009
	xap/firefox-3.5.2-i686-1AL
		updated


Monday, 08/03/2009
		Updated to pace all Slackware updates. Only Absolute modification
		of these entailed removing Slackware custom comments inside of the 
		hal package 10-keyboard.fdi file that could screw up parsing of the
		file by keyboard setting utility.
		
		
Wednesday, 07/22/2009

	xap/gimp-2.6.6-i486-3AL
		Updated to include latest 2.6 version of help pages (English only)
		I got tired of the "web browser" settings and location problems,
		as well as the outdated help versions. To impliment I hard-coded path into 
		GIMP source just to get it working already...
		The GIMP is a premier and complex program that deserves to be alloted the 
		space for its help files.
		  
		  
Monday, 07/20/2009

	ap/parcellite-0.9.1-i486-1AL
		Added. Lightweight clipboard manager, run as daemon from icewm startup. 
		Gives us clipboard text persistence without editing lots of other 
		applications each release... Seems to take up about 1mb of system memory.
		
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7fAL
		Updated to run parcellite in daemon mode on startup, some menu updates.
		
	x/pixman-0.15.10-i486-2
		Reversion -- 15.16 caused problems so Slack went back...
		
	x/mesa-7.4.4-i486-2.txz
		Rebuilt.  Fixed paths in .pc files, so if you compiled anything against 
		mesa, things should now work.
		
	CD2: -----------------------------------------------------------------------
		
		modules/ndiswrapper-1.54_2.6.29.6_smp-i486-2AL
			Compiled for present kernel
			
		frostwire-4.18.0-noarch-1AL
			Added
			
		scribus-1.3.5.rc3-i486-1AL
			Added, as well as one dependency (podofo-0.7.0-i486-1AL) which was 
			optional, but I thought very useful.
	
	
Friday, 07/17/2009

	xap/geany-0.17-i486-3AL
		Finished tweaking default toolbar for what I think will be 
		most comfortable for use as a general text editor. Those of us
		using the IDE-type commands are going to be using the keyboard 
		shortcuts anyway...
		Gave up on the persistent clipboard idea. Without running a daemon I
		kept running into parsing errors or forcing limitations onto formatting
		ability of copied content.
		
		
			
Thursday, 07/16/2009

	etc-13.0.0-noarch-1AL
		Set Font applet in Control Panel - updated to give user message
		to log off and on, rather than try to set/restart all possible uses
		of the fonts. Would lock up when run from control panel (if .desktop 
		call not run in background) -- and even then would close windows for 
		file managers which could confuse users and would be a real hassle to
		keep track of via code -- figure it is simpler and less confusing to 
		the user simply to log off and on.
		Also updated New User utility to include basic deskto user among the 
		netdev and power groups. The former is needed for proper use of 
		wicd (wireless manager) as a user.
		
	n/wicd-1.6.2-i486-1AL
		Upgraded, still with inet1-clearing added as well as config crud-busting
		(I am truly unhappy with python's configparser.
	
	xap/pcmanfm-0.5.0-i486-9kAL
		Eliminated --sendto-clipboard call as it was more trouble than it 
		was worth trying to correctly parse passed text. To persist the 
		clipboard from Geany (text editor) I switched to straight GTK-clipboard calls 
		in tandem with "xset --keep" function automatically called on copy in Geany.
		Gets the job done.
		
	xap/geany-0.17-i486-2AL
		Patched to use gtk copy functions in tandem with xsel to persist text copy 
		to the clipboard. In other words, you can copy something, close Geany, but 
		still paste the copied text into something else.
		
		
	All applicable updates to Slackware also incorpporated as of their listing 
	for 07/4 and 07-16. Includes Firefox-3.5.1 and xorg-server-1.6.2. See 
	ChangeSlack.txt for details.
	
	

Monday, 07/13/2009

	xap/deluge-1.1.9-i486-1AL.txz
		Updated, with a couple new, small dependencies (listed below)
		already added to main install.
		
	l/qt-r994599-i486-1AL
		Updated.
	
	l/py_mako-0.2.4-i486-1AL
		Addeed. Supports new (v1.1.9) of deluge
	
	l/python2-chardet-1.0.1-i486-1AL
		Addeed. Supports new (v1.1.9) of deluge

	CD2:
	reportlab-2.3-i486-2AL
		Repackaged for the latest python
		
		
		
Friday, 07/10/2009
	
	xap/pcmanfm-0.5.0-i486-9jAL
		>New call added to pcmanfm for use by other applications:
		  pcmanfm --sendto-clipboard <"text to send">
		  This allows other apps to keep their clippings persistent without using 
		  a clipboard daemon. (Since pcmanfm is running and sets the clipboard for 
		  the other apps. In effect, we get the benefits of running a clipboard daemon
		  without using the memory to run one. -- Pretty slick. First app I am
		  implimenting this with is the Nedit replacement, Geany.
		>"Copy to clipboard" function cleaned up (took out some unneeded old stuff)
		>Some "incompatible pointer type" warnings taken out of main.c
	
	xap/geany-0.17-i486-1AL
		Replaces Nedit as the default text editor.
		Source code changed to incorporate use of Pcmanfm when "copy" of text is 
		used. This means text copied from Genie is persistent across other apps 
		while pcmanfm is running, (which is usually always.)
		Also some default settings applied in code to make interface simpler by 
		default, making is easier for new users.
	
	xap/gqview-2.0.4-i486-6AL
		Edited source to allow gqview to set wallpaper used by Pcmanfm.
		
	xap/smplayer-0.6.7-i486-3AL
		Updated package to install nto prefix /usr instead of /usr/local, 
		also pre-set a couple preferences, including use of newly-included
		Nuvelo theme.
	
	l/OpenAL-0.0.8-i486-2AL
		Added for game support.
		In particular, is needed for "FretsOnFire"
	
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7eAL
		Menus Updated
		
	xap/rox_filer-2.9-i486-2aAL
		Sendto/mimetype update related to new default text editor.
		
	xap/madman
		Removed. Would not compile with newer libraries
		
	l/festival
		Audio for QStarDict - moved to CD2
		QStardict functions without it. ust install festival if you want 
		machine-pronounced words.
		
	CD2
		reportlab-2.3-i486-2AL
			Repackaged for python-2.6
		
		
Tuesday, 07/07/2009

	a/etc-13.0.rc2-noarch-4AL
		Added keyboard.py, removed kbd.
		This is a new helper application located in /usr/local/sbin
		For use by sys admin (root), available from control panel,
		that sets keyboard layout and variant in accordance with newer
		hal/xorg implimentations.
		
	xap/abscontrolpanel-1.0.0-noarch-3AL
		Updated. Includes link to new keyboard setting utility.
		
	ap/xsel-1.2.0-i486-1AL
		Added. Command line manipulation of x clipboard
		used in conjunction with pcmanfm to ensure "copy to clipboard"
		and to make saved text persistent after app window closes.
	
	xap/pcmanfm-0.5.0-i486-9iAL
		Updated. Improvement to "copy to clipboard" function.
	
	x/fonts_for_graphics-1.0-noarch-1AL
		Added back into main install...
		These were removed due to space considerations a LONG time ago,
		but there are 45 (great) ttf fonts for use with GIMP and only 
		take up one MB.
		
	d/cadaver-0.23.2-i486-1AL
		Added
	
	d/grsync-0.6.1-i486-1AL
		Added
		
		
		
Friday, 07/03/2009

	xap/k3b-r900974-i486-1AL
		Updated to latest SVN. Tried several versions until  k3b finally 
		managed to close a session after a DVD ISO image was burned. 
		Still throws plenty of crud into stdout as far as warnings, but 
		is getting better all the time, and I am using it extensively.
		
	a/aaa_base-13.0-noarch-1AL
		Updated to include .abscontrolcenter directory tree,
		to make this available for installing comtrol panel ".desktop"
		files upon system install.
		
	xap/abscontrolpanel-1.0.0-noarch-2AL
		Updated with an "Applications" section for use with controls for 
		individual applications. First one implimented was for Tuxpaint-config.
		Also corected warnings to stdout when no items were in a category...
		which is what is in "Applications" on a base install. Also les confusing
		because empty category did not change the "page" of items shown. Now it
		does.
		
	ap/tgz2txz-1.0-noarch-2AL
		Moved from /xap as updated scripts can both be run from console.
		
	a/etc-13.0.rc2-noarch-2AL
		Updated to include a couple new scripts.
		/usr/local/sbin/inpkg and an associated .desktop file and icon which allows 
		root user to right-click on a package in Pcmanfm and choose to install it.
		#
		Also, /usr/local/sbin/app_control_install which can be used to install
		control panel .desktop files from a package install script. If the package 
		has a .desktop file included in /root/.abscontrolpanel/Applications,
		the install script can call:
		app_control_install "name-of-xxx.desktop"
		and the .desktop file will be installed in /skel and for all present users.
		Tested with the tuxpaing-config package you can find in CD2/games at the repos.

	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7dAL
		Updated with large menu additions/cleanup for games section.
		Midori browser introduces Absolute with the Getting Started page upon first boot.
		
	*** SEVERAL SDL and a couple perl modules previously in CD2/games were
	put into the main install.use most overlapped other game requirements.
	
	
	The following apps were updated along with Slackware:
		n/wicd-1.6.1-i486-1AL.txz:  Upgraded.  Thanks to Robby Workman.
			Was also modified for Absolute. See included docs.
			Mostly to clear garbage from config files -- is all this trauma due
			to the Python configparser module? I'm guessing maybe...
		n/iwlwifi-3945-ucode-15.32.2.9-fw-1.txz:  Upgraded.
		n/iwlwifi-5000-ucode-8.24.2.12-fw-1.txz:  Upgraded.

		l/urwid-0.9.8.4-i486-1.txz:  Added.  Needed for wicd

		ap/ghostscript-8.64-i486-2 (* Security fix *)
		
		CD2/httpd-2.2.11-i486-2.txz:  Rebuilt
				
		
	CD2
		Games was added to, completely recompiled and renovated.

Thursday, 07/02/2009

	xap/qtwitter-0.6.0-i486-2AL
		Corrected scalable icon location, 
		moved all icons into Tango.
		
	
	
Wednesday, 07/01/2009

	xap/rox_filer-2.9-i486-1AL
		Updated.
		Major need to update was that Firefox-3.5 did not send data 
		for drag and drop into ROX the same -- had to tweak the code
		a pinch. You can see my hack in /usr/doc/rox. Also updated the diff
		in documentation for the Archiver code.
		
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7cAL
		Changed a couple toolbar icons.
		Seems trivial, but the xterm icon really screwed me up,
		and browser icon should be more generic (from Tango) mimetype icon -- 
		so it goes with Firefox or Midori or whatever...
		
	xap/gqview-2.0.4-i486-5AL
		Recompiled, also changed .desktop file NOT to use -r (remote)
		and therefore allow multiple instances. Also pulled 
		"Set as Wallpaper" from gqview menu.
		
	ap/lshw-B.02.13-i686-4AL
		Corrected paths to allow run by users.
				

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 13.0.rc2 release
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday, 06/30/2009

	a/etc-13.0.rc2-noarch-1AL
		Updated to proper version.
		"Getting Started information now includes setting default Web Browser,
		as Midori is now included in the base installer (although Firefox is 
		still the default.)

	xap/midori-0.1.7-i486-1AL.txz
		Added Midori Web browser to base install.
		List of dependencies also added to base install include:

		l/webkit-r44862-i486-1AL.txz
		d/docutils-0.5-i486-1AL.txz
		l/gperf-3.0.3-i486-1AL.txz
		l/libsoup-2.27.2-i486-1AL.txz
		l/libunique-1.0.8-i486-1AL.txz

	xap/firefox-3.5-i686-1AL
		Updated to firefox-3.5. 
		Also updated installer script to update firefox libs 
		location (listed in /etc/ld.so.conf) and run ldconfig.
		
	l/kdelibs-4.2.4-i486-1AL
		Updated, with Absolute customizations
		(runBrowser, Thunderbird and xterm are default applications 
		opened by appropriate links.) Also, fake mime types and warnings 
		concerning missing mime comments were taken out. They showed up a lot 
		when running k3b from a term, as k3b is not really polished on 
		KDE4 yet. 
	
	l/kdemultimedia-4.2.4-i486-1
		Updated
		
	xap/k3b-r989155-i486-1AL
		Updated, with lame mp3 decoder disabled as well as setup 
		disabled and custom icons installed in Tango. (Mad can be used to 
		decode MP3s.)
		
	
	
Monday, 06/29/2009 (2)

	d/git-1.6.3.3-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded.
	d/subversion-1.6.3-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded.



Monday, 06/29/2009

	ap/gdm-2.20.7-i486-5bAL
		Updated - corrected crash behavior to ensure that safe settings 
		were implimented and system reboots into console login. If chipset 
		unsupported this at least gets the user where they can either live with 
		basic settings or get to console easily and do something about it..
		
	x/xf86-video-nv-2.1.13-i486-2AL
		Updated to git version of 06/29/2009.
		Was trying to get chipset suport for a 9300 chipset included on 
		an Asus P5N7A-VM. Still no support, but there had been some improvements 
		so I left in the updated module.(Proprietary nVidia driver works fine 
		with the chipset. Gosh, I wish they went open source..)
		
	a/etc-13.0.0-noarch-4bAL
		Updated initial video configuration script.
		Changed the last pre-start message to reflect new behavior of system
		if there is an Xorg start failure. (How it will automatically reboot 
		into console mode.)
		
	

Sunday, 06/28/2009

	xap/abscreen-2.6-noarch-1AL
		Updated to defer to proprietary display configuration utilities 
		if present. (ex. if nvidia-settings is present and xorg.conf tells
		us that the nvidia driver is being used, then abscreen will start 
		the nvidia-settings utility and gracefully bow out.
		
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7bAL
		Updatede startup file which will update nvidia-settings if 
		user has set any screen settings through the nvidia utility
		(like gamma/color correction.)
		
	ap/gdm-2.20.7-i486-5AL
		Updated - corrected path to "safex" utility for when GDM fails.
		
	l/tango-icon-theme-0.8.90-noarch-2bAL
		Updated. Created custom mimetype "text-x-script" icon (in png and svg)
		with red square, to make it more obvious that file is executable -- 
		so folks won't click in Pcmanfm without realizing it will RUN rather 
		than open with editor (Nedit)
		
	xap/pcmanfm-0.5.0-i486-9hAL
		Updated ~/.local/share/applications/defaults.list
		to send deb package files directly to Archive (to unpack)
		Also sets non-executable text shellscripts (even .xxx) 
		to open with text editor (nedit.) Executable shell scripts are still
		run -- hence the updated tango icons to warn folks.
		(People tend to hesitate when they see red :)
		
	ap/most-5.0.0a-i486-2.txz:  Fixed doc directory, thanks to Ellington Santos.

	xap/mozilla-thunderbird-2.0.0.22-i686-1.txz:
	  Upgraded to thunderbird-2.0.0.22. (* Security fix *)
	  		
		
		
Saturday, 06/27/2009

	l/perl_Tk-804.028_501-i486-2AL
		Recompiled with font antialiasing support 
		(Makefile.PL XFT=1)
		You may notice the text looks nicer in add/remove programs

	a/etc-13.0.0-noarch-4AL
		Tweaked interface to addremove.pl
		(font, color, size, etc.)
		
		
	Removed redundant version of linuxdoc-tools from /d
		
		

Thursday, 06/25/2009

	a/sysvinit-scripts-1.2-noarch-29cAL
		Included /etc/inittab3
		for use when Xorg setup fails
		
	xap/pcmanfm-0.5.0-i486-9gAL
		Removed warning message when a filetype did not include a 
		description. Was flooding stdout with warnings. Yuck.
		
		
		
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Version 13.0.rc1 release

Tuesday, 06/23/2009 (2)
	a/sharutils-4.7-i486-1.txz:  Upgraded.

Tuesday, 06/23/2009

	xap/gdeskcal-1.0.1-noarch-6AL
		Edited to limit menu and added script -- 
		now started from clicking icewm clock and opens just above the clock
		(regardless of screen size.) Click on clock while calendarr is running 
		will close the clock. Only one skin but very cool.
		
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-7AL
		Integrated call to abscal (script for custom gdeskcal)
		Striped out some older themes. Pre-compiled most preferences 
		to avoid having to change them on app startup.



Monday, 06/22/2009

	d/gc-7.1-i486-2AL
		Added. Garbage collection
		
	l/libglademm-2.6.7-i486-2AL

	xap/htmldoc-1.8.27-i686-2AL
		Updated conversion script (html2pdf) - can now handle some foibles

		has good functionality with simple pages, but really excells with
		help pages containing tables of contents with internal and external links.
		
	a/etc-13.0.0-noarch-3AL
		Edited setbrowser.py to ignore html2pdf as a possible browser
		(which is the name of the updated html-to-pdf conversion script.)
		Also pulled some old wallpapers, put new default into pcmanfm 
		(which controls the desktop bg.)
	
	xap/pcmanfm-0.5.0-i486-9fAL

	a/etc-13.0.0-noarch-2AL
		Updated "about absolute", pulling weird colors and putting in repository 
		information.
		Added "wifi_on" script that appears in the new control panel and allows 
		easy transition to and from the use of wireless.
		Added absDM (absolute download manager) which is a simple script for 
		Midori (on CD2) to use as a download manager. This option is already 
		set in the Midori package.
		Updated setBrowser.py - properly sets the env. variable for the BROWSER
		in ~/.bashrc
		Updated runBrowser script, which sources the .bashrc file so that when 
		script is not called from the shell, it stil gets the ENV variable for 
		the BROWSER.

	xap/abscontrolpanel-1.0.0-noarch-1AL
		Added. System control panel based upon work by qcontrolpanel 
		by Thierry Deseez. This is a nice-looking qt4-based shell to drop 
		.desktop files into a user (.abscontrolpanel) folder. Easy to check out
		the examples and add other utilities as desired. Also allows me to strip 
		down the icewm menu, making it cleaner and faster.

	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-6AL
		Set clock command to gdeskcal. Changing system time is a root-only 
		endeavour that now appears in the control panel.
		Huge change in menu. Due to new control panel the ice menu has been 
		greatly simplified. Easier to navigate and quicker ice startup.
		
	xap/pyNeighborhood-0.4-i586-2AL
		Updated. Start script checks if Samba is running, if not directs user 
		on how to activate.
		
	xap/htop-0.8.2-i486-1AL
		Updated. Placed in new control panel, colors returned to sanity.
		
	xap/absgamma-2.0-noarch-1AL
		Re-written to accommodate use with icewm startup without regard to 
		logon type, other init scripts. Greatly simplified the code. I wrote 
		it for Absolute, I'll let other folks on other distros who want to use 
		it adapt the save settings to their needs.
		
	xap/wicd-1.6.0-noarch-2AL
		Bug fix. testing revealed that swiitching to wired connection left 
		junk in "wired-settings.conf" that prevented the daemon from later
		starting. rather than track down the culprit (configparser, wicd, 
		hal, dbus -- whatever) I put code to clean out that junk before 
		starting the daemon or the client. Be glad to take it out after 
		solution is found.

	l/sdl-1.2.13-i486-4.txz:  Upgraded.  Use SDL_image-1.2.7, and compile SDL

	  Luigi Trovato for the bug report.  Also, compile without arts support.
	l/seamonkey-solibs-1.1.16-i486-2.txz:  Added.  This is a subset of the

	xap/firefox-3.0.11-i686-1AL
		Updated firefox - security and stability update.
		
	xap/abiword-plugins-2.6.8-i486-1AL
		Added the plugs for JPG,  GIMP, different document format, etc
		
	xap/k3b-r948463-i486-3AL
		Updated - fixed a couple missing icons, actually "made" a new one for 
		"burn" (looks hot... ouch) and put the icons in Tango, where they belong
		for us on Absolute. Habit I should get into for all apps. Will make things
		neater, run just a pinch faster, and be easier for users/hackers to 
		figure out what is going on and make changes for fun and profit :)
		
	xap/rox_filer-2.6.9-i486-4AL
		Updated. This was just a tweak to BG image and folder (directory) icon.
		I stare at this a lot, so I like it to look good.
		
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-5AL
		Updated to correct folder icon used for pcmanfm. There is a definite 
		correlation between folder icons for pcmanfm and rox -- a peek at the 
		corner of the window or the task tray should let users know what is open
		with which window manager. Brown for rox, blue for pcmanfm.
		
		
		
Sunday, 06/14/2009

	n/wicd-1.6.0
		Updated. Improved inet1.conf-clearing part of rc.wicd script (so as 
		not to blast other settings so easily...
		Pulled part of Glade code that kicked warnings.
		Defaulted pref for wirelesss to "wlan0" in preferences if no 
		interface was listed. (Solves a lot of detection problems.)
		
	xap/rox_filer-2.6.9-i486-3AL
		Updated - added "open with pcmanfm" to toolbar
		Added mime icon for xz archives.
		Also updated the "diff" files for source code in /usr/doc/rox.

	a/etc-12.2.6-noarch-3AL
		Updated - had neglected to update .gtkrc-2.0 for the root account
		
	xap/pcmanfm-0.5.0-i486-9eAL
		Changed "compression" to be handled by rox-archive -- 
		felt that calling xterm with command was awkward and sometimes 
		crashed pcmanfm. Testing worked well with Archive.
		
	xap/AbsVolume-5.0-i486-1AL
		Updated to version 5.0
		No longer in system tray (used 7-8mb of memory)
		Now closes as soon as slider loses focus  (click 
		on anything elsse and volume bar disappears)
		
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-4AL
		Updated to put absvolume back in toolbar, out of tray

	a/sysvinit-scripts-1.2-noarch-29bAL
		Limited TTYs to 4
		Had originally limited to 2 (saves a bit of memory)
		Then I left at Slack default of 6 -- 
		but memory usage forced me to trim back a bit, so I compromised.
		
		

Saturday, 06/13/2009
	l/djvulibre-3.5.21-i486-1
		Added - Used by the newer imagemagick
	xap/rox_filer-2.6.9-i486-2AL
		Updated - Fixed "theme" install so it complied with 
		the compiled location, tweaked a couple icons and updated 
		background settings (in .gtkrc-2.0, in etc package)
		Removed debugging version.
	a/etc-12.2.6-noarch-2AL
		Updated .gtk-2.0 for new settings needed by Rox-Filer
		.xinitrc edited to check for sound card presence before 
		chirping out teh "bb.wav" on startup (when non-graphical)
	xap/icewm-1.2.37-i486-3AL
		Updated - startup script for both user and root changed to check 
		for sound card before trying to run absvolume



Thursday, 06/11/2009
	xap/pcmanfm-0.5.0-i486-9dAL
		Recompiled - also pulled warning from vfs-mime-type.c
		when mime is unknown (tended to clutter stdout)
	xap/rox_filer-2.6.9-i486-1AL
		Made further addition to Archive (formats.py)
		to better handle decompression of xz packages.
		Also updated mime type icons and rox-lib2 to v2.5
	xap/AbsVolume-4.3-i486-2AL
		recompiled
	
	HUGE list of packages updated by Slackware and incorporated here.
	Xorg has been updated and virtually all /x has beedn updated, 
	as well as many libraries.

**** 12.2.5 RELEASE ****

	Interface updated along with kernel, python, packaging system 
	which is now txz-based and due to higher compression the main 
	release contains much more than previously: OpenOffice and Java, 
	as well as many other applications now fit on a single CD. 

	Pcmanfm and rox have both been modified to seamlessly work with 
	the TXZ package archives as well as the new "Add/Remove Programs" 
	item in root menu. New volume control (now in system tray, sleeker.) 
	New theme, more complete file type handling.

**** 12.2.4 RELEASE ****


	l/qt-qt-r948357-i486-1AL
		updated to QT4
	
	l/kdelibs-4.2.2-i486-1AL
		updated to kde-4.x
	
	xap/k3b-r948463-i486-1AL
		updated to svn K3B, which has been ported to QT4
		Same VERSION as Slackware, but compiled without 
		external plugin LAME(MP3) which caused errors.
		Madlib allows ripping audio CDs to MP3 if desired.
		NOTE: I suggest using Asunder, however, 
		as it has more quality options.
		
	xap/galculator-1.3.4-i486-1AL
		replaces older calculator.
		Hacked out source to ake the little app much easier on the eyes.
		
	xap/regexxer-0.9-i486-1AL
		replaces kfilereplace
	
	xap/gonvert-0.2.20-i486-1AL
		replaces convert. this is a unit conversion utility.
					
	Several packages were moved to CD2 from base install to make room for 
	larger QT4 libs, Without docs they went from 50 to just under 29 MB.
	The deciding factor in upgrading was the availability of new QT for use
	by developers. We now have up-to-date QT as well as fltk, making the distro
	much more developper-friendly. Below is the complete list of NEW files:

	xap/xmms-1.2.11-i486-4AL

	xap/icewm-1.2.35-i486-95AL
		Updated System Font Setting utility.
		That utility now has the option to change the font size independently for the Xterm.

		Added. Re-introduced to library files on Abslute.

	l/glib2-2.18.4-i486-1AL - security fix
		Absolute version has gtk-docs removed (saves 1.1 mb)
		Slackware's /etc/profile.d/libglib2.sh now is the same as Absolute's
		(accommodating UTF8 usage) and the build is the same.

		Updated vidconfig (installer script)
		ensures it only runs on first boot
		gives detailed message about switching it non-graphical login
		if there are errors running Xorg.
	
	a/sysvinit-scripts-1.2-noarch-26.1AL
		Now includes an /etc/inittab3 file
		which is just a backup of inittab that has init set to 3, making it

Thursday, 03/26/2009

	d/linuxdoc-tools-0.9.21-i486-6AL
		Moved from CD2 to /absolute/d
		used by developers as well as being a dependency of HomeBank
		


Wednesday, 03/25/2009

	a/etc-12.2.23-noarch-1AL
		Updated to include oprofile in /etc/passwd (Slack compliance)
		Updated runBrowser script
			Respects set homepage if opens new tab with no url
			Checks if url is html page, if not it asks user if they
			still want to open...
			Updated URL passing parameters to newer firefox model
		Added .desktop file for runBrowser

	xap/madman-0.94b1p1-i486-1AL
		Added madman, music library app that uses XMMS to play files.
		Includes plugs to send to k3b to burn as data or CD audio, also 
		export to a playlist. Older app needed some source tweaking to run.
		Diff files are in /doc directory if you want to build/play with code.
		  I reverted to XMMS in part because it was more reliable with 
		playlists than Audacious. Now I can catalog all my ripped, 
		fossil-rock CDs for several more decades of geezer-geek bliss!

	xap/icewm-1.2.35-i486-93AL
		Updated winoptions file
		updated xterm icon
		added madman to menu plus icon
		
	xap/thunderbird-2.0.0.21-i686-1 - security update
		prefs.js is custom, needed to set runBrowser script for links in mail
		
	From Slackware:
	ap/a2ps-4.14-i486-2 - packaging fix
	d/nasm-2.05.01-i486-1 - upgraded

		was passed - now it will open whatever you set as the homepage.



Wednesday, 03/18/2009

	n/wicd-1.5.9-noarch-2AL
		update makes rc.wicd reset values of rc.inet1.conf and runs 
		"/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart" if pre-clear version was different
		This enables use of wicd without manual editing if user switches
		to wicd after using netconfig (or had edited net configuration)



Tuesday, 03/17/2009 (2)
	
		Regressed freetype to 2.3.8 as well as cairo-2.8.6-i486-1
		as the freetype build seems to have broken xorg
		
		Improved install message re: how to boot broken system
		(wonder why I noticed that? :)

Friday, 03/13/2009

	Huge update.
	Slackware bumped kernel to 2.6.28.7 and GCC, so much was recompiled.
	Slackware also introduced several additional libraries used by KDE4, 
	but most of them have NOT been included in Absolute. As a consequence,
	Slack's HPLIP is dependent upon QT4 (50mb lib), while Absolute's is 
	still based pon QT3 (10mb lib, and used for K3B, which is still not 
	ported to KDE4.)
	
	See the ChangeSlack.txt for Slack updates, and below is a list of most 
	other packages updated specifically on Absolute. Note: with the new GCC 
	and kernel, this will shortly be turned into a new release.
	
	As with Slack, the kernel and its headers, source, firmware and modules 
	packages have all been updated. GCC and related packages and libs. (Many)
	pcmanfm recompiled.
	ROX-Filer and Icewm both had tweaks.
	Firefox updated to 3.0.7
	ffmpeg used in multimedia installer uppdated to use version 0.5
	k3b recompiled (due to new libdvdread, as well as ffmpeg)
	
	INSTALLER now defaults to EXT4 partition format, although via manual 
	install you can select ext4, ext3 or reiserfs.
	For now the Absolute kernel IS the Slackware huge-smp. No alterations have 
	been made, after testing and feedback from the forum we'll decide where to 
	go with that. I'm thinking of staying put until after the coming Xorg update. 
	There are other things to improve before working on temporary performance gains.

		Wacom tablet module/utils and udev rule
		instructions for settings in xorg.conf are in the readme file.

	extra/openoffice.org-3.0.1
		Updated with Robby Workman's package.
		but changed VCL.xcu to prefer DejaVu fonts.



Sunday, 02/22/2009

	n/wicd-1.5.9
		updated wicd (wirreless and wired networking manager)
  		This fixes a security problem with the D-Bus configuration file that allows
  		local users to intercept D-Bus messages, possibly including wireless network
  		credentials.


	xap/gimp-2.6.5
		version bump for the gimp.
		Also has latest brushes/scripts from gimphelp.org.


	l/libpng-1.2.35-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to libpng-1.2.35.
		This fixes multiple memory-corruption vulnerabilities due to a failure to
		properly initialize data structures.

	n/dnsmasq-2.47-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to dnsmasq-2.47
	ap/sqlite-3.6.11-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to sqlite-3.6.11
	a/cpio-2.9-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to cpio-2.9.
	ap/cdrtools-2.01.01a57-i486-2.tgz: 




Wednesday, 02/05/2009

	xap/firefox-3.0.6
		Updated to firefox 3.0.6
		Cleaned up ld prefs a bit... back up your bookmarks, uninstall and 
		then after update, use "organize bookmarks" and pull in bookmark 
		backup (.json file) -- just a good habit to be into when updating firefox.
		If you are a heavy plugin user, you can always leave your home direcory 
		"mozilla" and see how it goes...
		
		

Tuesday, 02/03/2009

	x/xdg-utils-1.0.2-noarch-3:
		This update fixes two security issues.  First, use of xdg-open in
		/etc/mailcap was found to be unsafe -- xdg-open passes along downloaded files
		without indicating what mime type they initially presented themselves as,
		leaving programs further down the processing chain to discover the file type
		again.  This makes it rather trivial to present a script (such as a .desktop
		file) as a document type (like a PDF) so that it looks safe to click on in a
		browser, but will result in the execution of an arbitrary script.  It might
		be safe to send files to trusted applications in /etc/mailcap, but it does
		not seem to be safe to send files to xdg-open in /etc/mailcap.
		This package will comment out calls to xdg-open in /etc/mailcap if they are
		determined to have been added by a previous version of this package.
		If you've made any local customizations to /etc/mailcap, be sure to check
		that there are no uncommented calls to xdg-open after installing this update.

	n/bluez-utils-3.36-i486-5.tgz:  Changes in the dbus version used in Slackware
		12.2 (and in -current) to increase security had some unintended side effects,
		and bluez was one of the things that broke.  However, by using the dbus
		bluetooth.conf file from bluez-4, this version of bluez can be made to work
		again.  The newer version of the .conf file has been merged into this package,
		and changed from a .conf.new to a plain .conf to ensure that it replaces the
		other version.  Thanks to David Somero for the bug report and fix.
		
		


Tuesday, 01/27/2009
	xap/epdfview-0.1.6-i486-7AL

	xap/firefox-3.0.5-i686-2AL
		Only change is in shared default preferences for mimetypes
		setting PDF viewer to epdfview.

		Added "restart Pcmanfm" to the tools menu
		Added icon to "Extract Here" menu item for compressed volumes

	xap/rox_filer-2.6.1-i486-96AL
		Changed option to run pinboard by default
		this was no longer needed after Pcmanfm took over 
		the desktop several releases ago. (I noticed the ROX wallpaper
		when restarting Pcmanfm. had neglected to stop using rox pinboard 
		by default.)

	l/js-1.7.0-i486-1AL

		in support of AviDemux and likely others later.




Saturday, 01/10/2009

	ap/hplip-2.8.10-i486-2AL
		updated to fix an error due to python indentation
		(I love Python, but editing someone else's script can be a 
		nightmare because of different TAB sizes in different editors.)
	xap/icewm-1.2.35-i486-86AL
		Just changed names of printing items.
		HP Tools and Printing (general) makes use clearer.



******* 12.2.1 released ***************


Thursday, 01/08/2009

	l/libgphoto2-2.4.3-i486-4AL
		updated to properly include udev rules file
		needed to make PTP cameras work for user accounts
	a/ivman-0.6.14-i486-6AL
		updated user configuration for actions
		needed to make PTP cameras work for user accounts
	n/wicd-1.5.8-noarch-2AL
		changed NOT to run by default
		it saps several MB of memory if not used
		If you update you will have to turn it back on in 
		RUN SERVICES MENU or "chmod a+x /etc/rc.d/rc.wicd"
	pidgin-2.5.2-i486-4AL
		updated to include preferences for sound.
		Sets method to custom, command to "aplay %s"
		This was easier to impliment and maintain than 
		changing the source code.
	a/etc-12.2.1-noarch-1AL.tgz
		updated to reflect next release
		
		

Wednesday, 01/07/2009

	xap/gimp-2.6.4-i486-1AL
		updated gimp for fixes, updated scripts
		also updated support libraries l/gegl and l/babl

	xap/gqview-2.0.4-i486-4AL
		Just to remove the "remote" flag from its desktop file.
		I actually like the behavior of opening more than one window 
		on gqview at a time to compare images. The "remote" flag made 
		this impractical.

	CD2 - 
		Gimp-Stuff/gimp_help-2.4.2-i486-1AL
			Updated GIMP help and tested with new build.
			Finally have it working OK. Languages included are:
			de, en, es, fr, it, ko, nl, no, pl, ru, sv




Tuesday, 01/06/2009

	gdm-2.20.7-i486-3AL
		Updated to include a kde.desktop file in /etc/X11/dm/Sessions
		so users who install KDE from Slackware can choose "KDE Session"
		from the list of sessions in the login menu (the default GDM login)
		The list of session managers is shown when you click the "Sessions"
		button on the lower left of the login screen.

		If you choose KDE but do not have it installed, a few seconds later you 
		are returned to the login to try again :)

	n/samba-3.2.7-i486-1
		Updated for a security fix.

	n/wicd-1.5.8-noarch-1AL
		update fixes some issues that prevented proper 
		functionality for some users
		
	Pulled Liberation Fonts as well as fonts_for_graphics from main install
		-- now on CD2 under Gimp_Stuff
		(All those fonts really slowed down install...)
		Although OpenOffice sets Liberation Font as default,
		font system on Absolute auto-substitutes Tymes. Easy enough to 
		change this to Deja-Vu Serif if desired -- just go under 
		OPTIONS > OPENOFFICE.ORG WRITER > BASIC FONTS
		and change each setting to Deja-Vu, or whatever...
		I'm honestly not too taken with the Liberation fonts at this point.
		



Sunday, 01/04/2009
	a/ivman-0.6.14-i486-5AL
		updated /etc/ivman/IvmConfigActions.xml
		to properly set action based on newer hal info
		PTP cameras are mounted and displayed automatically
		if automount is on (uses fuse/ivman)



Sunday, 01/04/2009
	a/mkinitrd-1.3.3-i486-1
	xap/mozilla-thunderbird-2.0.0.19-i686-1
	x/xf86-video-intel-2.4.3-i486-2

	ON CD2
		xap/seamonkey-1.1.14-i486-1



Monday, 12/29/2008
	a/etc-12.2.0-noarch-2AL
		updated just one contained script - runBrowser, 
		to accommodate shtml and case-sensitivity of file 
		extensions.

	ON CD2
		audacity/audacity-1.3.6
		wxPython-2.8.9.1 (replaces older wxGTK and wxPython)
		


Monday, 12/29/2008

	Added updated (wpclipart-7.1) installer to the download page.
	All the clip art and wpclipper.py (viewer/editor) packages 
	are hosted on Ibiblio.

	Wpclipper.py is NOT needed to view the clip art, but is an 
	extremely handy tool when used in conjunction with word processors. 
	The application was coded on and for Absolute Linux -- so if you 
	just want to try the editor you can always grab it from the 
	wpclipart.com/viewer folder, download it anywhere you have 
	permissions to and run it. Dependencies are already on 
	Absolute, and the script is self-contained in that it does 
	NOT use Glade or any other support modules.

	BE AWARE: the complete installer is 747 MB (there are 23,000+ 
	images in the collection.)
	

		
Monday, 12/22/2008

	l/gstreamer and gst-plugins added for Pidgin sound support
		under preferences/sound, change method to "command"
		enter "aplay %s" in command box

	xap/gimp updated to 2.6.3-i486-3AL
		update to script-fu-2.6.21


Friday, 12/19/2008

	Firefox-updated to 3.0.5


****************************************************************
************************ RELEASE *******************************


Sunday, 12/14/2008
	
	Release bumped to 12.2.0
	No changes from the RC1 release
	Updating to 2 repositories and SourceForge takes a few days :(


Monday, 12/08/2008

ivman, rox, icewm updated to accommodate audio program changes:
	xmms replaces audacious
		Audacious has proven itself too difficult to script via 
		CD autostart.

	asunder replaces jripper
		In case users have not noticed, the Java runtime is now on
		CD2 (or /extra_packages in the repo) By eliminating jripper, 
		the only common use for Java anymore seems to be for online 
		gaming in the browser. Since most folks do not Pogo -- grab 
		Java from /extra_packages if you need it.

libmikmod also added in support of xmms

alsa-libs, alsa-oss and alsa-utils all updated.


Slackware updates to hdparm, man-pages, libgphoto2, network-scripts, 
pidgin, wicd, ghostscript, gutenprint, pm-utils, gftp and the installers
initrd.img. -- See ChangeSlack.txt for all the gory details.
Also updated:
l/dbus-1.2.6-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to dbus-1.2.6.
l/dbus-glib-0.78-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to dbus-glib-0.78.
l/hal-0.5.11-i486-3.tgz:  Slack modified hal.conf to use the plugdev group.
	(Almost in line with Absolute, finally.)



Friday, 12/05/2008

n/wicd updated to 1.5.6

n/network-scripts-12.2-noarch-2.tgz
	Don't try to reset ipv4 parameters in
	rc.ip_forward unless /etc/sysctl.conf exists.

isolinux/initrd.img
	Added lsscsi and pciutils

xap/icewm
	updated to include grsync in menu if present
	(was added to development in /extra_packages)

extra_packages
	jre-6u11-i586-1.tgz
		Upgraded to Java(TM) 2 Platform Standard Edition
		Runtime Environment Version 6.0 update 11.

	libraries/perl_TK-804.028_perl510-i486-2AL
		perl_TK updated for use with tk-8.5.5

	development/grsync-0.6.1
		added grsync



Thursday, 12/04/2008

Updated appropriate files to "keep up" with Slackware.
	Slack has "come in line" with our wicd use, so no more modifications
	for Absolute are needed :) Only difference is that wicd is not set
	to startup automatically (rc.wicd not executable).
	This is because if you are NOT using wireless, you don't need to 
	run wicd -- which eats up about 20MB of memory.

Updated GIMP to 2.6.3 with extra gimphelp.org scripts and brushes.



Saturday, 11/29/2008

xap/Xarchiver
	Added as default archive manager - 
	Archive (of Rox-Filer fame) is still present, as it is small,
	fast and handles "Extract Here" option in Pcmanfm beautifully.

xap/pcmanfm-0.5-i486-6AL
	Adjusted to accommodate Xarchiver as new default archive manager
	Includes a change is source code also (hence recompiled)

xap/rox_filer-2.6.1-i486-94AL
	Pulled links2 in sendto (no longer present on system)
	Changed html mime to use "runBrowser" script rather than simply default 
	to Firefox... meant to do this a while ago.



Saturday, 11/29/2008
a/etc
	Updated to once again put in library path for firefox folder.
	(This had been removed when xulrunner was being tested.)

xap/htmlpage-2.4
	Updated, improves file recognition.
	Tested as source viewer for new Midor.


Sunday, 11/23/2008

xap/gimp-2.6.1-i486-2AL
	Updated included scripts
	(release 18 from gimphelp.org)
kernel-2.6.27.7
	kernel updated along with headers, modules and source and firmware
	(source in /extra)
	Also recompiled svgalib_helper, ndiswraper and madwifi
	(which are kernel-dependent)
xap/mozilla-thunderbird-2.0.0.18-i686-1
    Upgraded to thunderbird-2.0.0.18.
    This upgrade fixes some more security bugs
a/aaa_base-12.1.0-noarch-3 
	Fixed an extra "../" at the beginning of the
	/var/X11R6 symlink.  Thanks to Herbert Faleiros for pointing out the bug.
a/glibc-solibs-2.7-i486-17
	Recompiled against Linux 2.6.27.7.
a/glibc-zoneinfo-2.7-noarch-17
	Rebuilt.
ap/hplip-2.8.10-i486-1
	Upgraded to hplip-2.8.10
	again patched to enable running as root user
ap/pm-utils-1.2.2.1-i486-1
	dded pm-utils-1.2.2.1.
ap/slackpkg-2.70.4-noarch-1
	Added slackpkg-2.70.4
ap/texinfo-4.13a-i486-2
	Patched the install script to replace
	/usr/info/dir if the topmost node is missing.
l/glibc-2.7-i486-17
	Recompiled against Linux 2.6.27.7.
l/glibc-i18n-2.7-noarch-17
	Rebuilt.
l/glibc-profile-2.7-i486-17
	Recompiled against Linux 2.6.27.7.
n/curl-7.19.2-i486-1
	Upgraded to curl-7.19.2.
n/ntp-4.2.4p5-i486-1
	Upgraded to ntp-4.2.4p5.


Thursday, 11/20/2008

slapt-get-0.9.12e-i486-1AL
gslapt-0.4.0-i486-1AL
	added for use in updating.
	Default path for updates set to:
	ftp://ftp.slackware.org.uk/absolute-current/

pyfloppy-1.6-noarch.3AL
firefox_flash_plugin-10.0.12.36-2AL
	descriptions updated to avoid parsing error when using slapt-get/gslapt

libxml2-2.7.2-2AL
	security fix
	note that this is not the Slackware version as Slack is using an
	older libxml2 -- this is not compatible (as several gtk apps are 
	compiled against it) -- so do not update Absolute version with 
	Slackware version.

xf86-video-openchrome-0.2.903-i486-1
	This is BACKDATED version that Slackware has just released.
	Slack did not previously include the openchrome driver -- 
	and Absolute had been using the 0.3.0 version. Since Slack now 
	includes the module -- we will fall in step. If it does not update 
	using an auto-update utility (being an older version) the Absolute
	version should work fine. If you find a need, you may have to 
	download the package and update manually.

BELOW is the SLACKWARE changelog we kept up with.
The libxml2 version difference for Absolute is noted above.
Compiz was updated in Slackware but is not included in Absolute.

	Wed Nov 19 19:52:15 CST 2008
	a/acpid-1.0.8-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to acpid-1.0.8.
	  /etc/acpi/acpi_handler.sh will be installed as a .new with future upgrades,
	  but since whatever version already installed on the system owns
	  /etc/acpi/acpi_handler.sh, it will still be overwritten one more time when
	  this update is installed.  If you've customized your script, be sure to back
	  it up before upgrading.
	a/mkinitrd-1.3.2-i486-4.tgz:  
		Fixed a bug where unless -F was the first option
	  given, other command line options would not override the contents of
	  /etc/mkinitrd.conf as documented in the man page.
	  Thanks to David Somero for the patch.
	l/libxml2-2.6.32-i486-2.tgz:  Patched and recompiled.
	  This fixes vulnerabilities including denial of service, 
	  or possibly the execution of arbitrary code as the user 
	  running a libxml2 linked application if untrusted XML content is parsed. 
	  For more information, see:
		http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-4225

		Upgraded to xkeyboard-config-1.4.
	NOTE:  These are some of the more important updates for X.Org.  
	  For the last several days we have been building and testing 
	  the very newest X updates, and it seems that the more intrusive 
	  updates are probably best left to develop until sometime after 
	  the coming -stable Slackware 12.2 release.  Those will require 
	  a lot of testing and some things don't seem to be quite there 
	  yet. "X -configure" is hanging the console, DRI is not yet working 
	  on all the hardware tested, and the new xorg-server will render 
	  most existing xorg.conf files non-functional until several changes 
	  are made.


Tuesday, 11/18/2008

kernel-2.6.27.6
	kernel updated along with headers, modules and source
	(source in /extra)
	Also recompiled svgalib_helper, ndiswraper and madwifi
	(which are kernel-dependent)

firefox-3.0.4
	This is the Slackware build with Absolute prefs/chrome.
	The xulrunner build changed again and required path 
	tweaking, again -- and neither mplayerplug-in not gecko-media
	player would compile. Rather than beat my head against the wall 
	every couple weeks reconfiguring a moving target, I'll stay closer 
	to Slackware to eliminate headaches. So xulrunner was REMOVED,
	Seamonkey was temporarily installed to build the gecko player (plugin) 
	and is now in /extra in case someone needs them to build.

etc-12.1.14-noarch-2AL.tgz
	Fixed included multimedia installer
	Had scripted it to install an outdated version of lame.
	So this is a fix.

mplayer-r27957-i486-1AL.tgz
	recompiled against newer support libs. Also recompiled/updated
	gnome-mplayer and gecko-media player.

glibc-solibs-2.7-i486-16.tgz
	Recompiled against Linux 2.6.27.6.
glibc-zoneinfo-2.7-noarch-16.tgz
	Rebuilt
glibc-i18n-2.7-noarch-16.tgz
	Rebuilt
glibc-profile-2.7-i486-16.tgz
	Recompiled against Linux 2.6.27.6.

Friday, 11/14/2008

pcmanfm-0.5-i486-5AL
	removed "getting started" folder -- put into a/etc package
	xterm set as default terminal emulator (via config files)
	added "Set System Font" to desktop right-click menu

etc-12.1.14-noarch-1AL
	added "getting started" folder for root and skel in "Desktop"
	added "Downloads" folder into Desktop, also

firefox-3.0.3-i686-5AL
	Just 2 preference changes:
		download directory default now ~/Desktop/Downloads
		download manager closes when complete 
		(notification pop up is annoying enough)



Wednesday, 11/12/2008

Pidgin, gnutls, and bluez packages (bluetooth)
gnutls (upon which pidgin depends) is a security fix. Bluez packages 
(for bluetooth) are backed up to 3.x due to lacking userspace support 
for the newer 4.x series.

--------------RELEASE ---------------------------------

Absolute Linux 12.1.13

Monday, 11/10/2008

Rebuilt for updated kernel:
svgalib_helper
ndiswrapper-r2673
madwifi-r3876
	ath_pci no longer needs loading from rc.local
	ath5k no longer blacklisted


kernel updated to 2.6.27.5
base CPU matches Slack at i686
Kernel has the usual Absoute customizations built into the Slack generic:
	tickless
	hi-res timer
	voluntary preemption
	USB HID
	USB mass Storage
	reiserfs and ext3
	iso9880, UDF, MSDOS, VFAT, NTFS
	windows logical disk management support


Java updated to jre-6up10
as well as all other Slack updates to date, with exceptions of KDE 
packages and audacious.

Epdfview replaced by old standard Xpdf -- epdfview was broken with new 
gtk, despite recompile. Has not been upated yet but since it is so 
fragile (with large number of dependencies) I will scrap it in favor 
of Xpdf. Xpdf is customized only in that link commands are run as 
runBrowser (firefox by default) and gtklp for printing.

Pcmanfm updated to put Xpdf as the default PDF viewer. (In defaults.list)

Updated to AviDemux-2.4.3, patched and compiled to work with new x264
Mplayer updated to revision 27874.
Multimedia Installer updated to pull in updated versions of lame and ffmpeg.
libquicktime patched and updated to work with new ffmpeg and new x264
Added portaudio_v19_20071207
Updated to libsamplerate-0.1.4
Added libsndfile-1.0.18pre24h
Updated to sqlite-2.6.4
Updated to x264-11012008

icewm menu update -- links to online avidemux docs. Pulls last couple "links2" 
references (uses newer runBrowser command)

gcalctool replaces xcalc as system calculator. (Under educational menu)
xcalc had a long startup delay after UTF8 implimentation,
doubt there is a fix forthcoming -- and gcalctool is reasonably small 
and, although nicely basic by defalt, it can change views to advanced,
financial and scientific.

pysqlite package updated to correct improper installation of 
documentation into the root of filesystem.

Pulled preferences files that caused problems with Deluge.




Absolute Linux 12.1.12

Thursday, 10/30/2008

Goodbye Latin1.
Due to need to set GIMP to UTF8 (or image name will not display in title bar,
plus other idiosyncracies...) As well as for HPLIP (or PPDs will not be found) 
I have decided to make the leap to UTF8 in 12.1.12.
I know there may be some pangs due to this, but I have been building up to this
for a while and it is to the point that so little is broken by switching to UTF8, 
the system will actually be harder to fix if we keep putting it off.

Gutenprint updated to v5.2.1
One code change to mention:
if browse is necessary because printer is not listed in Gutenprint list,
set to look for PPDs by default in /etc/cups/ppd
This is where cups and/or hplip will have extracted an installed PD file to.

Hplip updated to v2.8.9
User add utility adds users to lp AND scanner for now to ensure scanning use.
Also edited to enable running as root user.

Default xterm size bumped up in .Xresources file (was way too small)

Re-compiled GIMP-2.6.1 against updated poppler package, 
to better handle PDF import.

Xulrunner/firefox is back. GTK problems solved, only trace of console-listed 
errors occurred prior to updating flash plugin. Appears those errors were 
generated due to missing Arial font -- (which will remain missing: ) Happily 
the errors are too... 

Stardict has been moved to CD2.
Feel badly it is not on base install, hopfully after some cleanup I can squeeze 
it back in. 

/etc/fonts/local.conf now uses DejaVu fonts as substitutes -- had used 
older substitutes for the last few years, but DejaVu looks great (better than 
liberation fonts and even the older subs of Tymes, Veranda, etc. I had been 
using.) Finally got around to making the switch system-wide.

Sysvinit-scripts updated, pulling superfluous rc.local.new 
(customized version is in a/etc package)
Also added more possible files to clear out of /tmp directory while booting.
I know this slows boot down even more (a pinch), but I really hate seeing 
tons of garbage lying around the filesystem.

Flash plugin is version 10.0.12.36. 

Re-compiled all glib/gtk libraries and dependencies (38 packages)

Updated to wicd-1.5.4

Added gksu and dependencies

Changed sudoes file (sudo package) to allow use of wicd via gksudo

Nedit updated. Custom build upon late-model lesstiff libs were not 
without glitches, notably in cut and paste. Therefore the binary 
for linux-x86 is now used. Much better behaved. Tabs set to 4 spaces,
color tweak.

HTMLpage updated again, this time just minor feature enhancements.
Indentation of tabs set to 4 spaces (usual with coding), and 
highlighting a section allows TAB to indent it all at once. Comes 
in useful more often than you might think -- especially if you like 
to play with Python code.

Cable-ready deluge (P2P) settings incorporated into package, including 
path/settings for blocklist.




Absolute Linux 12.1.11

Tuesday, 10/21/2008
facelift release:

Absolute now boots into GUI by default, rather than CLI.
Used customized gdm with theme based upon "applelinux".
Looks really cool, less confusing to newbies. Has an emergency 
console, so hackers can "init 3" to drop into the console.
Gdm modified to not show any Gnome options and keeps Xresources
pointed to the Slackware defaults.

Pcmanfm has taken over the desktop from ROX-Filer,
allowing proper use of "Desktop" directory.
Also, pcmanfm has been modified again, adding a menu item
when right-clicking on the desktop to set screen resolution 
(via absScreen.) Background image/color etc. are set-able from 
pcmanfm properties interface.

setsystemfont.py script updated to acommodate restarting pcmanfm 
when updating system font setting.

HTMLpage updated with a fix to eliminate "undo" blanking document 
when you undo one too many times. Was recoverable, but very annoying.
(And scary, when first seen!)

GTKpod added... for the iPod fans.

Icewm updated to eliminate SETTINGS > BACKGROUND COLOR
Is settable from pcmanfm. (Was originally hooked to ROX-Filer.)

New default theme. Absolute was picked on in a review as looking like 
Windows 98. I felt bad. But don't worry, we're not going translucent, 
fading, resource-hungry, eye-candy. Just a more "modern" color scheme. 
"Absolute Dark" -- Look who's bad, baby.

Dumped some old themes.
Cleaned out some superfluous documentation from packages putting things 
like +1MB changelogs, developer APIs, etc. Need the space.




Absolute Linux 12.1.10

(the release de jure) Thursday, 10/16/2008
Uploaded to ibiblio, other links to follow.

A Bug fix release:

GIMP-2.6.1, is a bug fix. gimp-remote was not working, among a few
other smaller problems.

Replaced packages for libgnomecanvas, libgnomecups, libgnomeprint,
libgnomeprintui -- due to printing problems, likely due to compiling against
outdated libgnomecanvas.

Updated Firefox to Slack version -- xulrunner-based compile of FF had
problems with jpg background images and also some console warnings --
might also have been based on bad canvas? No xulrunner means more space in
the meantime and re-introduced acidrip and gcstar to base install, along
with a few more games.

Fixed rox-filer send-to item for filetype HTML to "runBrowser", rather
than assume firefox. Also took out send-to for links2 browser, which no
longer gets distributed with Absolute.

Updated to keep up with Slack-current. Most notable are the constant
glibc updates Smile



Monday, 09/24/2008

Tested HPLIP and DID NOT play well with Gutenprint drivers.
Removed HPLIP, again. Gave me the space to...

Added Acidrip and GCStar to base install along with all their 
perl module dependencies (which I put into /absolute/d
Also reinstated the KDE games libs and few games.

    HTML documention updated to open browser with "runBrowser"
command, rather than loading links2. Therefore will open with 
system browser if user has selected this, otherwise will use Firefox.
Links has been removed. Midori can be used as second/alternative 
browser from CD2 -- as I think that Webkit-based alternative is
much more usable and is quite actvely under development. Also Midori
ties in with the system very well with use of GTK, mplayer and HTMLpage.
(Just not feature-complete yet...)

    Jripper updated to 2008.06

    Recompiled madwifi (r3867), svgalib_helper and ndiswrapper
for current kernel.

    For CD2, updated all perl-mods, Gcstar and Acidrip.

    added: djbfft-0.76-i686-1as.tgz
Updated:
a52dec-0.7.4-i486-2AL.tgz
audiofile-0.2.6-i486-2AL.tgz
avifile-0.7.45-i486-2sl.tgz
libfame-0.9.1-i486-2sl.tgz
libmpeg3-1.7-i686-3sl.tgz
libquicktime-1.0.3-i486-1AL.tgz
lzo-2.03-i486-1sl.tgz
normalize-0.7.7-i486-1AL.tgz
transcode-1.0.6-i486-1AL.tgz
- transcode now suports a great many more file types

    linHDD.py updated to 0.7.
Eliminates the "cannot rstrip a nonetype" error.

    Improved tmp file cleaning in /etc/rc.d/rc.S in sysvinit-scripts.

/etc/profile.d/lang.sh now includes:
export LC_ALL=$LANG.UTF8

    Updated ff.py (file-finding utility)
Better-looking UI, option to skip hidden and cache files, updated 
"open-with" menu to use latest applications.

    Updated pcmanfm to version 0.5.0.
Includes "Search-In..." function for displayed folders
(opens new ff.py, the file-finding utility.)
Also a "Backup" menu item for files. makes a quick filename.bak.
Earlier addition of "Copy path to clipboard" still there (I love it.)

    Recompiled epdfview with new poppler lib. 
Fixed it as default viewer with pcmanfm.

    Pidgin reintroduced from CD2 back into base install, with all locale files.

    Updated GIMP to customised 2.4.7 (scripts, themes, settings), 
now also includes locale files as well as all the extra brush and 
pattern files I had previously included in the GIMP_data_extras package.

Deluge and its dependencies are now on base install CD, Avidemux2 also.
(P2P client and video editor, respectively.)

Kernel Source package moved to CD2, due to space contraints. 
In recent months there has been an extreme need for 
space. Putting developer docs separate on CD2 seemed OK, but after having to 
put the language files for GIMP and Pidgen on CD2 as well, I think things might 
have gone a bit too far... it is now to the point of losing apps or libraries,
or move the kernel source to CD2 -- which seems  the more tolerable solution.
This will give us the room to restore locale folders for languages on GIMP and 
Pidgen as well as enabling inclusion of additional libraries or applications on 
the installer CD.

Multimedia Installer updated. (Part of a/etc package)
If user chooses to install, libdvdcss version searched for is 1.2.10,
also has second location to pull (Slacky.eu) if videolan site is down.

Xulrunner recompiled, version updated to 1.9.0.1 with tweaks to compiler settings. 
Firefox recompiled on top of this as well. Thunderbird now compiled on this also.
(But located on CD2, as Sylpheed is still the default mail program.)

    Updated to keep up with Slackware-current. GCC-4.2.4, kernel-2.6.24.7, 
lots of recompiles. BIG NOTE: Upon compiling the custom kernel for Absolute,
I have changed the base-CPU to a Pentium-II (up from Pentium Classic.)
Bottom line -- Absolute running Hal/dbus, apps like firefox and k3b, is not
really appropriate or capable of accommodating P-I processors. There are distros 
which specialize in lighter-weight apps but I feel Absolute is into more modern 
software -- just with less UI overhead and more appropiate for first and 
second-tier equipment, not antiques. (I have a hard time getting working parts 
of Pentiums to test on...) This also eliminates the need for me to recompile 
the kernel twice for each release... without any other outside developers I 
simply do not have the time to play with anything fun if I have to recompile
everything over and over...

    Edited hplip-2.8.7  to conform to Absolute's "root-only setup" philisophy.
Made hplip run so that root CAN install/delete a printer, users cannot. 
(Not just a security issue -- do IT guys or parents really want to help each 
and every user/kid set up a printer?)

Updated GTK, pygobject and added gtksourceview as well as pygtksourceview.
These were done in part to accommodate latest Midori build (on CD2), even 
though the native "view-source" is not working yet. Midori has been modified 
for Absolute to open HTMLpage to view source and icons fixed -- but since this 
Midori still has several features missing, it will remain on CD2 for now.

HTMLpage updated to version 1.0, now uses gtksourceview for syntax highlighting 
and improved undo/redo functionality. Added Desktop file. Pops open with page 
from Midori's "view-source" menu item. Dumped splash page for speed.

Updated audacious audio player,
simply adding an eq setting for headphones...
newer audacious packages are giving me trouble with CD-Audio playback,
so why break everything if I have no trouble with the version in Absolute?

mcs updated to 0.7, package now called libmcs

Added ogg video to flv converter
(useful to convert recordmydesktop ogg files to YouTube flash videos)
Also corrected ffmpeg check in flv2avi

Added TI calculator connection program (TILP) and support libraries (

Added zd1211 firmware (usb wireless chipset support, overlooked previously)

AbsVolume updated with button to open mixer.
(qamix added -- not the latest mixer but works well with our QT, so why not?)
Updated Also libs (lib, oss, utils)



Absolute Linux 12.1.06

Updated Firefox packaging to 2AL,
had to fix permissions on /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.1/firefox script.
(Would not run for user)

Updated lilo package to correctly install lilo when using the
installation's "AutoInstall" option.

Updated:
a/openssl-solibs-0.9.8h
l/libxml2-2.6.32
l/libxslt-1.1.24
l/pcre-7.7
n/openldap-client-2.3.43
n/openssl-0.9.8h
n/net-snmp-5.4.1.2
n/dnsmasq-2.45



Friday, 07/25/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1.05

Redesigned installer to include an "autoinstall" option
which will auto-partition drive and take care of lilo installation.
The lilo package in /absolute installer has also been updated to accommodate
(/var/log/setup/setup.liloconfig edited.)

Corrected internal "name" of links2.desktop file

absgamma.py (utility to adjust gamma of monitor)
updated so that when trying to be run when using the vesa driver 
user will be told the utility will not work and gracefully close.

Java updated to jre-6u7

gnome-icon-theme added for compatability with some apps,
avoids warnings and errors if a new app is added that uses the icons 
yet does does not do proper error trapping.

Svgpage moved to CD2 (does artsy conversions of SVG to PNGs.)




Saturday, 07/19/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1.04

etc-12.1.04-noarch-1AL:
Created 2 new scripts to handle the Default Web Browser.
setbrowser.py lets user choose from all browsers installed
(any app that has a .desktop file installed that handles text/html mimetype)
Sets Environmental Variable BROWSER along with defaults.list for pcmanfm.
runBrowser script is what now launches Firefox or any other browser on system.

midori browser is on CD2 for 12.1.04 - uses Webkit and is very fast, lightweight.
May switch default installed browser to Midori in future -- feedback appreciated.

Re-packaged links2 browser with .desktop file and associated 48x48 icon.

Rox updated to rox_filer-2.6.1-i486-92AL
...just a "getting started" tweak
Removed old rox-filer duplicate install package.

Some games (including KDE games) were put back into basic installer.

CUPs (service for printing) is now set to run by default Uses modest resources 
and when it was off it frustrated many folks when they could not get their printer 
working... 




Friday, 07/17/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1.03

Updated firefox to 3.0.1

Updated nasm, dnsmasq and e2fsprogs, as well as 
ati, nv and intel video drivers.
Added video drivers for Mach64 and r128.

Mesa updated to 7.0.3 (bugfix release)

Removed HPLIP for the time being.
(Setup through hp-setup or toolbox would not work.
CUPs setup has been flawless, so bye-bye for now..)

tweaked .desktop file for avidemux and ROX sendto handling

corrected unneeded import of wx in absAddUser.py script
(causing it not to run on default install without wxPython installed)



Thursday, 06/10/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1.02


Firefox updated to 3.0.
This necessitated installation of xulrunner-1.9, which can 
also subsequently be used to build firebird and other applications.
Spent a couple days tweaking settings for performance and got mailto 
links to work, finally. (Set in mimetypes.rdf instead of prefs.js.)

Mplayerplug-in on FF3 is a wash -- had to go with gecko-mplayer.
For this Orbit2 and gconf2 were installed with gnome-mplayer and 
gecko-mplayer. Not quite as fast, but it tested well.

Updated pcmanfm with much more robust handling of filetypes 
by default. Defaults.list now includes many more mime types.

Added isomaster for working with cd image files. 
Added kfilereplace (was previously on CD2)
Added a few games (monsterz, lbreakout2, njam and bumprace)
Added font-bh-lucindatypewriter (100 and 75 dpi)
Added scripts and desktop files to convert flv and ogg video to avi

Added lshw, along with script (run_lshw) that outputs in 
HTML format and opens the results in Links2, and also deletes 
the temporary html file. The gtk version of lshw just was not 
working well enough...

Updated to xorg-server-1.4.2
No longer need to patch and recompile xorg-server for use with 
icewm(there had been keyboard errors, previously.)

updated to gnutls-2.2.5, security related
updated Bind-9.4.2-P1, security related
updated Pidgin-2.4.3

 wxPython, wxGTK and pAgenda moved to CD2
(I had re-written the utilities that used wx to use pyGTK)

Fox (toolkit) and fluxbox moved to CD2

Also added/updated the following for support in mplayer:
(recompiled mlayer from subversion code 07/03/2008): 
	amrnb-7.0.0.1-i686-1as.tgz
	amrwb-7.0.0.2-i686-1as.tgz
	jack-audio-connection-kit-0.109.2-i486-2sl.tgz
	live555-2008.04.09-i686-1as.tgz
	speex-1.2beta3-i486-1dav.tgz
	twolame-0.3.12-i486-1as.tgz 



Monday, 06/02/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1.01

wicd updated (wicd-1.4.2-i486-2AL)
includes changes to daemon.py and networking.py to accommodate
Slackware networking scripts without altering them. Now
works despite presence of other networking interfaces.
ALSO added a patch to gui.py, to not allow empty entry 
of network name in wired interface setup -- this led to 
crash of daemon upon restart.

5ball gets a new high-contrast theme,
(requested by a visually-impaired user.)

absServices.py updated 
(utility to set startup programs/daemons)
changed from wxGTK to pyGTK + code cleanup

flv2avi re-introduced. Added desktop file and dialog if 
ffmpeg is not installed (which it requires.)

mkinitrd-1.3.2-i486-3 (updated by Slackware) Initialize RAID 
earlier so that the combination of RAID+LUKS+LVM works.

kdelibs updated to 3.5.9 with Absolute modifications

K3B updated to 1.0.5, include plugin support for ffmpeg use
(if the multimedia installer is used.)

Multimedia installer updated
Fixed ffmpeg not installing properly.
uses latest ffmpeg (r13628)
installs ffmpeg as a shared lib for use with other apps\

Couple performance tweaks
1.) to look out for if running a server: boot drive on install 
is set with "noatime" flag.(This speeds up the average machine 
quite a bit, especially if using an older drive.) 
2.) /etc/sysctrl.conf now includes "vm.swappiness=20", which 
can lead better system responsiveness, and very helpful in getting
enabling laptops to sleep.



Tuesday, 05/18/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1 FINAL

Updated interface for ff.py (file finding utility)
pcmanfm updated to 4.1.1, 
	also added file finding utility to tools menu (Ctrl + F)
gslapt and slapt-get updated



Tuesday, 05/05/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1

Updated kernel to Patched to fix a security issue in fs/dnotify.c
also added tickless and high-res timer support
[So installer and installed kernels both updated along with 
installer initrd.img. Also needed to recompile svgalib_helper,
ndiswrapper and madwifi.]

Firefox version backed-up to stable (2.0.0.14)

added:
usbview (utility to check out attached USB device information)
pycups
libgphoto2 and gphotofs to use with ivman,
(so now PTP cameras are auto-mounted)

Updated pcmanfm to version 0.4.0 (same tweaks applied)
Update gslapt and slapt-get

Updated deluge (and boost) packages on CD2
pygame and numpy updated (for gaming), some new games included for CD2
the KDE game libs and few games are now on CD2

Updated other packages to keep up with Slack 12.1 release



Tuesday, 04/15/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1 rc2

BASED UPON SLACKWARE CURRENT

Kernel installer (initrd.img) updated to accommodate Pentium MMX
(Installed kernel was MMX-compatible, but installer was not...)

Kernel recompiled to match updated Slackware kernel, 
but included Absolute optimizations.

Abscreen (screen resolution/refresh rate adjuster) updated 
to allow setting refresh rate when using Nvidia proprietary driver.
Was previously disabled due to inconsistencies between the 
utility setting (via xrandr) and Nvidia reported refresh rate.



Monday, 04/03/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1 rc1

BASED UPON SLACKWARE CURRENT

Since Xorg and ICEWM do not play well wit Ctrl+Alt+backspace,
I have temporarily made Ctrl+Alt+Esc force-close X for us.

Added pdfEdit to editors

kernel recompiled, had errors AFTER recompiling madwifi, 
might have been a corrupted file from a bad burn -- but 
did ot take a chance. 

Changed font used in graphic login for "Just in Case" -- 
(Little buttons that give the user the ability to shutdown 
or drop into the console.) Was hard to read...
This is an update to package x/xdm.

Pulled /etc/profile.d/oo.sh from etc package.
Is included now with the OpenOffice package on CD2,
so no worry keeping up to date or mixed-up paths.
(This file puts "/opt/openofficex.x/program" into path
so you can start the programs without hassle.)

Installer initrd.img sets mount for temporary memory (/dev/shm) 
in /etc/fstab, but with stricter options than Slack:
defaults,nosuid,noexec,rw
Might not stop abuse, but every little bit helps...

Lilo backdated to non-boot image version. Too problematic.

HPLIP and CUPS are versions 2.7.10 and 1.3.3, respectively,
in order to keep a working HPLIP version.

Otherwise, packages updated to coincide with Slackware Current



Monday, 03/31/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1 beta91

BASED UPON SLACKWARE CURRENT

	Gearing up for final 12.1 release...
	Upgraded kernel to 2.6.24.4 (with customizations)
	updated all packages to sync with Slack Current
	EXCEPT for KDE/QT (main use in Absolute is for K3B, 
	waiting for KDE4 in Slack so added packages will work)



Tuesday, 03/18/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1 beta9

BASED UPON SLACKWARE CURRENT

	pcmanfm (modified for Absolute) takes the place as default file manager
	ivman used to autoplay media (audio CD and DVDs)
	kernel is a modified 2.6.24.3 (Slackware generic with several additions)
	90+ packages updated



Friday, 02/22/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1 beta8

BASED UPON SLACKWARE CURRENT

	Documentaion reconstructed. Small scripts installed into 
	/usr/local/bin/doc (now in path set by /etc/profile) are 
	installed when individual docs are... therefore they only 
	show up in the icewm menu when they are actually present.
	Therefore all packages with documentation were rebuilt.

	Firefox is 3.0b4 (Minefield)
	-- this is a beta, but so are we :) Unlike 3.0b3, it has 
	   not given any errors in early testing.

	Sylpheed updated to 2.2.8
	gtkspell installed to suppport spell-checking in Sylpheed

	Icewm was updated to 1.2.35
	menus rebuilt to support new documentation model
	New default theme. (Absolute Cool - thinner titlebars and cleaner look.)

	kernel setting for CD locking changed in new file: /etc/sysctl.conf
	Now you can push button on CD-ROM without calling umount 
	or clicking on "eject"...

	find_installed script utility fixed

	setDate.py and gdeskcal both internally modified to prevent 
	the running of multiple instances.



Tuesday, 02/12/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1 beta7

BASED UPON SLACKWARE CURRENT
	Updated to Slackware's version of patched kernel - 2.6.23.16
	updated some other packages, most notably glibc jibe with
	compiled kernel. 



Monday, 02/11/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1 beta6

BASED UPON SLACKWARE CURRENT
	still Kernel 2.6.23.12 but -- 
	kernel patched (fs/splice.c) to avoid vmsplice vulnerability


Saturday, 02/09/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1 beta5

BASED UPON SLACKWARE CURRENT
	recompiled mplayer -- the source of the mplayerplug-in 
	failures when using firefox. (Had originally compiled 
	newer code from CVS... mistake.)

	Updated multimedia installer to use more recent version of 
	mplayer codecs (Oct '07).

	Recompiled OpenChrome driver, built from SVN 20080207

	Included neon (libneon) -- used by subversion (SVN) on CD2
	(and perhaps others...) Also updated subversion on CD2 to v1.4.6.

	Menu for Icewm re-arranged slightly, and also includes a RUN item, 
	which will run the command entered in a separate process.

	xorg-server patched to avoid problem with icewm.
	   The bug only occurs if Xkb triggers an autorepeat. In this case,
	   XkbHandleActions overwrites dev->public.realInputProc with 
	   EnqueueEvent. When the device is unfrozen, the realInputProc is 
	   written back to the processInputProc and the whole thing craps out.

	   patch is to /include/xkbsrv.h 
	   this is a temporary hack, as it has the reprecussion of causing 
	   Xorg to crash on icewm after, for instance, Ctrl+Alt+Del, don't 
	   log out, but later hit the backspace key. To AVOID his completely, 
	   xorg.conf now includes "DontZap" option in ServerFlsags section.
	   So all functions normally, without any craashes or frezes, 
	   but Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, which usually can be used to close Xorg, is 
	   not available.

	   Hopfully this awkward work-around will be unneeded soon...



Thursday, 02/03/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1 beta4

BASED UPON SLACKWARE CURRENT
	Corrects mod_symvers file in kernel source
	updates ndiswrapper package (to 1.52)


Thursday, 02/02/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1 beta3

BASED UPON SLACKWARE CURRENT
	Corrected lack of in-kernel support for ext3/ext2 filesystems



Thursday, 01/31/2008:
Absolute Linux 12.1 beta2

BASED UPON SLACKWARE CURRENT

	Too many individual packages to list -- this is another new kernel 
	(2.6.23.12) which I compiled with tickless (for laptop lower-power,
	for battery life extension) Also switched preemption model to low-latency 
	desktop (from more server-centric setting -- should have done that a while 
	ago...) plus the usual extra includes instead of modules for user-needed 
	stuff like MMC (SD) cards, USB MASS STORAGE, NTFS, etc.

	Other major change is for wirteless -- switched to WICD. Be sure to 
	enable WICD daemon when installing if you want to use wireless 
	(of course, you can always later enable it on startup via the 
	SERVICES menu.) When you do this you will see the WICD tray icon 
	next to the clock when using ICEWM (the default window manager.) 
	You can configure WICD from there. (Supposed to be easy, but I do not 
	have wireless to test with -- get back to me on this, somebody!)

	As I said, too many individual packages to list -- 
	but what follows are a few highlights:


GIMP-2.4.3
	Bug fixes to the 2.4 series -- 
	and I included all the SCRIPT-FU updates I worked on on gimphelp.org.

Firefox-2.0.0.11
	Plus newer adobe flash plugin as well as recompiled mplayerplug-in, 
	putting plugins into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins instead of versioned 
	Firefox library directory.

GTK2-2.12.4
	Alond with updates to the chain folowing this -- cairo, pycairo, pango, 
	etc. Nicer icons, anyway...

libpng
	Security fix

... and about 100 other packages.




Wednesday, 10/31/2007:
Absolute Linux 12.1.0 beta1

BASED UPON SLACKWARE CURRENT

	More than half the distro has been recompiled.
	After several sleepless nights I can confidently say this is the 
	most stable, fastest and best-tested of the Absolute 12.x series.

	Kernel boot image is 2755k.
	reiserfs and ext3 support built in, along with USB mass storage, 
	HID devces (for usb keyboards and mice) and many mountable filesystems -- 
	for the ease of mounting devices, including read/write to NTFS. (I have 
	backed-up more than 100 XP hard drives via a usb-ide adapter on Absolute 
	12.x now. Thank gosh for Windows users!


Xorg-7.3
	With custom patches to xinit, vesa video, xdm, and installer script 
	updated to set "composite" to false, as otherwise things (especially 
	Nedit) get messed up.

KDE libs updated to 3.5.8
	requied some re-write of customization code for URLs and email links.
	Help pages now opened by KDE (and documentation on menu) via Dillo.

Dillo-0.6.6
	threw in some code to eliminate orphaned file.xpi, bookmarks.xpi and
	dpid(s) that were left running after close. Took up about 
	130k of memory each -- not much, but why waste it?

Firefox upgraded to 2.0.0.8
	Compiled with headers and IDL files intact. Enables
	dev builds of things like the mplayerplug-in w/o resorting to 
	gecko SDK. After installing MultiMedia packages (with installer)
	it is a brick. Works for everything I tried.

MultiMedia installer
	Changed ffmpeg build to create shared lib rather than the default 
	static. Solved some problems :)

GIMP updated
	version 2.4 final. Changes to script-fus that I made are included 
	so that what is there, works. These include about half of what came 
	with GIMP originally, plus some others that I personally find very 
	useful. Sort of my favorites.

libiconv
	Removed. Caused many problems. Lightens the load

Icewm recompiled
	And some custom tweaking -- we now hae gdeskcal (a light, fast 
	desktop calendar) that appears when you left-click the taskbar clock. 
	I find this very handy. Right-clicking now oopens the time-adjusting 
	utility.

absusb
	The utility to load USB stick when not auto-mounting. Corrected a 
	path in the script to correctly link USB-stick to the shortrcut 
	generated in MyLinux desktop folder.

absServices.py
	Auto-mounting on/off switch now controls both hal and dbus 
	(hald and messagebus daemons)


abscreen
	fixed screen size and refresh rate utility when updating refresh 
	rate. It was writing to xorg.conf and truncating the refresh value 
	(dropping trailing zeroes) in screen section so that it did not 
	match the modeline, and was therefore ignored.
	ALSO -- turned off setting refresh rates for nvidia and vesa with 
	utility, as they did not work properly. For nvidia, even setting 
	"DynamicTwinView" to false in xorg.con (which enables xrandr to 
	get correct refresh rates) did not result in favoravle settings 
	-- they worked but the screens were not sized exactly to monitor 
	edges, so something was not quite right. f yu use the nvidia module, 
	then leaving the settings up to nvidia seems the best alternative.

icewm
	included nvidia icon (for use if proprietary driver is installed)




Thursday, 10/11/2007:
Absolute Linux 12.0.7

Bug Removal
	clearFstab (used to enable switching between auto and non-auto mounting 
	on Absolute) has been fixed, so that it will no longer remove any bootable, 
	swap or floppy devices from fstab which are /dev/sd

DevTray
	Fixed mounting of volumes (such as USB STICKS) to mount them UID,
	meaning users can mount them and WRITE to them properly.

XDM
	updated to fix un-merged resources in custom startup.
	fonts and language settings should now be correctly configured on GUI login

Font Update
	Pulled bitstream fonts that were not used and put in DejaVu
	for better language support. Also putting lots of graphical fonts 
	in GIMP extra package where they are actually used. (CD2)
	HTMLpage and Nedit now both use a programmer's font called Dina.

guten-print
	replaces gimp-print package for nice printing from the GIMP.
	Most noticeable feature is that a PPD selection is no longer required 
	on printer setup, just pick you printer and away you go...

epdfview
	has replaced xpdf for viewing PDF files.
	mimetype in ROX-Filer and firefox handling changed to accommodate.

audacity
	reintroduced. latest beta of audacity now builds with wxGTK-2.8.3, 
	with unicode -- happy days, it's back!	    

ROX-Filer
	updated mime-type handler for OpenOffice writer
	to again use swriterRox.sh script. make usage clearer 
	when OO not installed and when installed before reboot 
	(and path update has not kicked-in yet...)

etc package
	Font changed on system dialog boxes
	(usr/share/pixmaps/colorboxDOH.rc)
	Multimedia file about, installer and uninstaller scripts added

Mplayer
	updated (recompile) w/o skins or GUI enabled (due 
	to the fact that we now use smplayer frontend.) Winds up being 
	about 1/2 MB smaller package, despite inclusion of HTML docs.

Multimedia Installer
	This is for those who are legally able to install DVD and video codecs.
	Script in Icewm menu (as root) to "install Multimedia Files" downloads 
	some, compiles a lot, and installs all without any needed interaction.

Mplayer-plugin
	updated to work with multimedia files, latest builds.
	Required rebuild of firefox with all "dev" header files (see below)

Firefox
	Updated to 2.0.0.7 - I have read not needed on Linux, but the header 
	files for Firefox were needed to compile mplayerplug-in. (i had 
	gotten lazy and installed prebuilt -- compile time is quite long...)
	Also set handler for OGG files properly for audacious.

Checkinstall
	Still use old version 1.5.3 (no bugs), however, updated the checkinstall
	script to no longer automatically install the created package,  default 
	arch type is now i486, and install/soinst.sh is not packages if empty.

HTMLpage
	Updated with new base font set for default (Dina)
	A small and very readable monospaced font. You can tell 1 from l and so on...
	While in the HTMLpage code, I updated anything kicking out deprecation 
	warnings, before they became a problem.



Friday, 09/28/2007:
Absolute Linux 12.0.6

Midnight Commander(mc), Dillo web browser and ggradebook
	added to default packages

xdm updated for nice graphical login, when desired

icewm update
	to include menu item to switch between 
	graphic login or text-based. Checkers menu item 
	changed for better display.

etc package 
	now includes script that switches login type
	-- gets called from icewm menu

DevTray 
	Pulled AlsaAudio card handler. This originally had a bug with 
	SB Live cards, takes up memory, and does nothing Asolute does not 
	already do. Also new DevTray icon and tooltip, to avoid confusion.

Pyalsaaudio and Alsamixergui removed
	Were used by DevTray, but no more.

GIMP
	Updated to 2.4.0-rc3. Stable and actually faster than previous GIMP.
	Pulled translations, which will now be on CD2.

ROX
	Updated handler for GIMP in SendTo for images and PDFs. 
	Updated "Getting Started" information.

GQView
	Back-dated version to 2.0.4, due to CPU-usage maxing out. Older 
	version more stable. Also tweaked "edit with" for gimp. Lastly, 
	situated HTML docs to show in DOCUMENTATION menu.

Libiconv 
	Back in to help with the language thing...

XDM
	Updated to make font in shutdown/console options more readable.

chess and checkers
	fixed both these x games. Chess had a bug with new gcc and 
	checkers was a configuration thing, also set up checkers display 
	better and put images it uses in /usr/share/games/xcheckers.



Tuesday, 09/07/2007:
Absolute Linux 12.0.5


ndiswrapper - updated to 1.48rc2 

Kernel Update (yes, again) - this time to include built-in support for 
	USB keyboard during install of Absolute

Any patent-encumbered software removed
	BCI-enable Freetype (replaced with non-BCI enabled)
	libmad, lame, ffmpeg and libdvdcss removed -- 
	SlackBuild for each available in /usr/src/restricted
	as well as one to install the mplayer-codecs-all
	(libdvdcss and mplayer-codecs require user download)
	Dependencies for them updated - a52dec, faac, faad2, x264, xvidcore

Pidgin - updated to version 2.1.1 

Fluxbox menu updated with some icons

Updated mailNotify.py (mail notification setup)
	so user can toggle notification on/off
	(default is now OFF)

linHDD updated to 0.5
	Further stripped down code for fdisk customization (abs_fdisk)
	Included diff file for code changes in /usr/doc/linHDD/source_diff

Convertor script for kde docbooks to html (docb2html)
	mime type/run action incorporated into ROX-Filer settings,
	so clicking on a docbook will convert it to HTML and open it with Firefox

Rebuilt kdelibs - still version-2.5.7, but I wanted to include source code 
	changes as patches with descriptions, and rebuilding with patches I was 
	going to redistribute seemed the safest path to follow.    

ROX-filer updated - flac and ogg mime-handlers,
	send-to script for converting mp3 to ogg
	(if you install libmad, lame and ffmpeg from /usr/src/restricted)

Icewm  - updated themes (since we enabled transparency, 
	might's well get fancy-like.) Also dumped themed start menu buttons 
	for consistency. Added 2 icons (Pidgin and term)




Sunday, 09/02/2007:
Absolute Linux 12.0.4


k3b FIX - was not working as non-root, and k3b setup, with all its 
dependencies, was not an option. So cdrdao, readcd and cdrecord are 
now all:
	root:cdrom 4710
	tested and works. Nothing to set up.

Kernel, modules and source packages again updated
	compiled for smaller kernel as some folks had memory limitations
	generic smp kernel with (not modules) of:
        ext3 and reiserfs filesystems
	iso9660, UDF, DOS, vfat, NTFS, NFS and Windows Logical Disc manager
	EHCI USB (2.0), USB Mass Storage, USB HID and MMC (SD) cards
	Kernel bzImage is now lowly 2542k
	eliminated xfs, as it alone added 254k to the kernel.
	kernel source properly "prepped" and used in place of original 
	Slackware version. Running "make prepare" on kernel source, 
	also jibes with nvidia documentation.

Edited ROX-Filer source code and recompiled 2.6.1
	added all screen-related utilities to panel right-click menu
	(diffs to all source files are included in /usr/doc/rox)

Added fuse and ntfs-3g for mounting NTFS partitions read/write

Rebuilt xorg xinit to make single .Xauthority file in ~/, instead of leaving 
	ultiple serverauth.xxxx files lying around (source difference included)

Updated icewm
	added background color change menu item to "Settings"

Pulled all gtk-docs from all packages that had them
	they will appear on CD2, extended documentation under GTK_Docs package
	and if installed, show up under /usr/doc/gtk/gtk_doc_other

Began including the TENTATIVE doc project
	which for now appear under "How We Do It" in the documentation menu

Removed gimp_extra_bypaul and put on CD2 list. Many folks won't need it,
	clears 10MB of space, and will allow GIMP to start faster for basic users.
	Response to request to keep iso of Absolute below 690 MB.

Added icewm menu items for apps on CD2 (they only show up when installed)

Added mime-type to ROX to handle .mp4 audio files (m4a and friends) with audacious.
If not encrypted they will play.

Updated abscreen

Added nvidia-settings to main menu 
	(will show up if you have a relatively recent nvidia proprietary driver build)




Wednesday, 08/22/2007:
Absolute Linux 12.0.3


Updated slapt-get and gslapt. Packages include:
	gnupg-1.4.7 (which can coexist with instaled gnupg-2.x
	Also added gpgme-1.1.4, gslapt-0.3.18 and slapt-get-0.9.12
Kernel source/header versions corrected, compiles nvidia driver OK
Adjusted mime-handlers in ROX for wma and wav files and 
	adding conversion scripts in SENDTO menu -- wav2mp3, wma2mp3 and flv2avi
Fixed error in DevTray where DATA DVDs were not "auto-mounting",
	(was caused by missing png file)
Fixed modules install to properly match custom kernel
	(had caused problems for nvidia-compiling folks)
Updated to Firefox-2.0.0.6, also updated xpdf, mkinitr, and the ati, nv and 
vesa x-modules. Developer documentation for QT and xdialog moved to CD2 to 
make space.
Frostwire package added.
abscreen updated to 2.2

NOTE: IF YOU RUN THE CD INSTALLER AS UPDATE the kernel packages will not be 
	updated. (kernel, kernel source and kernel modules) I changed the naming 
	scheme to an appropriate arch/version.



Tuesday, 08/07/2007:
Absolute Linux 12.0.2


BUG FIX: Where rebooting with sata drive wiped its entry in fstab 
	     (so no boot if sata was boot drive)
	fixed clearFstab, a script to wipe fstab entries of mountable devices due 
	to switching between auto and non-auto mounting -- so that it does not wipe 
	fstab entries for sata drives set in Lilo
ndiswrapper > updated due to compile error
Geting Started document shortcut put on user as well as root desktop.
	Also includes 1st_RUN_INFO.htmlL file with some appropriate facts
Removed XTRA version of linux-wlan-ng
Removed grub for the time being



Wednesday, 08/01/2007:
Absolute Linux 12.0.1

kernel recompiled to support 586 CPUs (Pentium-1 and K6-2)
K3B > 1.0.3 Updated for bug fixes, including one device error 
	that could prevent app startup
Firefox > 2.0.0.5
	and seperated Absolute custom firefox startup sripts from 
	the firefox install, and put them in a/etc package. This 
	version has them in both firefox installer and the new a/etc package.
Java, jre > version 6, update 2
Sylpheed > 2.4.4
Lame and ffmpeg libs recompiled
ufraw plugin for GIMP now included by default
nvidia xconfig utility now included
Mail notification setup now restarts icewm itself to take effect immediately
XFS filesysem now an additional formatting option upon install
RAR files have a handler under ROX now, which unpacks to a subdir of rar 
	file name via unrar
putty added to Internet Apps
menu items added for putty, (and Azureus and kshowmail, 
	but not on installer disk)
GIMP 2.2.17 updated (gimprc) to include font path of data extras


Monday, 07/16/2007:
Absolute Linux 12.0

Auto-mounting implimented using udev/Hal/DevTray.
Actually, added devices are shown in a panel BELOW the 
taskbar -- click arrow at right of taskbar and 
it will slide out of the way, revealing the panel 
with device icons. Single mouse click 
runs the device default action -- right-click on icon 
shows a menu.

Uses 2.6.21.5 SMP kernel. 586 is NOT supported.
(Don't try to install on a Pentium-I or a k6-2.)



Monday, 02/27/2007:
Absolute Linux 11.0.92

Corrected icewm to iconify audacious in tray only and, 
once again, not run icewmbg in the background, although 
icewmhint and icesh I left alone.
Icewm configured with the folowing flags:
--prefix=/usr --with-kdedatadir=/opt/kde/share 
--with-cfgdir=/usr/share/icewm --disable-winmenu 
--without-gnome --disable-shape

Turned off inetd and crond by default, but can easily be 
turned on if needed via services run menu or making the 
daemons executable in /etc/rc.d.

Memory usage on test system was 18MB on idle, second machine 
was still 20. I think this is as low as I can go :) 

Corrected this changelog. Corrected spelling error 
in the installer. This is it until 11.1 series, which will
have the 2.6 kernel.

This update seems minor, but keeping Absolute running and 
firing up Firefox with memory usage BELOW 32MB (which without  
icewmbg it does) was rather important to me.



Monday, 03/26/2007:
Absolute Linux 11.0.91

Nothing earth-shaking.
I corrected all reported bugs since 11.0.9.
Everything on "updates" download page also included.


Additionally:

ROX, icewm were updated, but no real functionality differences in these.
I had new inclusions and just wanted to compile against later libs (since
original compiles.) Trying to clear out anything a bit aging for long-term 
use and before 11.1.

Firefox is 2.0.0.3.
(Better audio mimetype handling and Sylpheed reintegrated into email sendto:)
linHDD is 0.3
(bug fix for possible broken-line df output)
audacious was upped to 1.3.1
(dep of mcs added for new config file, cd-playing still works nicely)
etc always echoes version (11.0.91)
(contains several of the custom Absolute scripts.)
GIMP has some extra stuff in "extras"




Monday, 01/29/2007:
Absolute Linux 11.0.9

--------------------------------------------------------------
Large-scale changes. Suggest reinstall for this version or you 
will have to copy sudoers.new from package and delete the HOME 
directory folders for mozilla and frostwire. Also the 
/usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.1 folder should be removed.
--------------------------------------------------------------

Switched from Azureus to ktorrent.
Quality/options not so bad as to offset HUGE performance gain.
The java client, Azureus, was a resource pig.

Updated Frostwire, needed to switch to Sun jre from Blackdown Java to 
accommodate this. Blackdown is just too old... and Sun stepped up to 
the plate by open-sourcing Java.

Rebuilt Firefox plugins and Firefox packages.
Added handful of randon splash screens.

Added Skype internet telephony app. Version 1.3.0.53

Put a libGL.la into /usr/lib -- just a text file used for linking. 
Needed to compile KDE applications if nvidia  driver is not present.
(nvidia driver installs the libGL.la file.)

Fixed CD data and DVD mounting from CD scripts 
(which are included in the a/etc package)
cdir utility had a problem with data DVDs, so I 
had to resort to a "mount" command to do some checking. 
Because of this sudoers also had to be altered to accommodate 
non-root users having access to the mount command in sbin.
[If you are updating you will have to update /etc/sudoers manually,
just copy sudoers.new from sudo package to /etc/sudoers.]

Also in etc-11.0.9, removed some wallpapers and sounds to make room,
moved firefox startup script out of etc package and into firefox
package where it belonged.

Updated mplayer from CVS to recompile with added libraries.
Libdvdcss, libdv, libmpcdec were added.

Rebuilt Audacity from cvs (01_26_2007) to accommodate libflac 
	and unicode properly

Updated abs_usb (fstab entry to set device mounting to rw)

GIMP_extras added 5 parchment patterns

In X -- fonts_scale added 2 fonts

Put font paths into gimprc for use with freetype plugin

Tweaked absAdduser.py, ensuring added user is part of "users" group

Make "SendTo" links in ROX for images to ImageMagick Display and kiconedit

Icewm update only affects behavior on initial boot. (Sound setup tweaked
to be a bit more explanatory if need be...)

Added a couple brief HowTos in the desktop "Help Me" link, 
	in the rox_filer package.


LAST 3 ARE PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENTS/TWEAKING:

	Turned off crond and atd by default -- but they also now appear in the 
	Services Menu (absServices.py), which can be turned on or off.

	Took out > 2 virtual terminals by commenting out c3,c4,c5,c6 in /etc/inittab
	(hence new version of sysvinit)

	Fixed starting second instance of icewmtray from 
	~/.icewm/startup "icewmtray&"
	(Since icewm-session started the tray for us already...)





Thursday, 01/11/2007:
Absolute Linux 11.0.7

Fix. Put in proper faad2 version for use with audio/video 
conversions using ffmpeg. Also included needed libmp4v2.

Updated usbdrive (for usb sticks/devices) so as to properly 
handle usb sticks as a user and when swapping between 
different devices.

Include commandline unrar utility

Turned off sshd in services by default.



Monday, 01/01/2007:
Absolute Linux 11.0.6

Fix. Filefinder did not do other searches after a cancel.

Change. XMMS replaced with Audacious. Allows Audio CDs to be 
played without any setup/playlist hacks and includes ability 
(default) to play audio from CDs directly (no audio cord needed.)
All CD startup scripts that appear in MyLinux were updated to 
accommodate, as well as mimetypes, mplayer and additional audio
support files. 

Added/updated audio libs include ffmpeg, faad, faac, id3lib, taglib.

Aditional Mplayer support includes ability to play .flv 
(Flash video, a la YouTube) standalone, mimetype set in ROX.

Fix. Email notification setup utility can handle usernames that must 
include "@" character. (Thanks Noisome)

Updated. Firefox to 2.0.0.1. Automatic updating is turned OFF.
(Would not work for non-root users on Absolute, anyway.)



Monday 11/27/2006:
Absolute Linux 11.0.5

Fix. Pulled last-minute USB-stick setup solution. Good idea 
but my implimentaion conflicted with sata drives on /dev/sda. 
Stupid oversight on my part...
I will find a solution after I have parts to test with.



Saturday 11/25/2006:
Absolute Linux 11.0.5

Included Jeff's USB-stick mounting technique. 
(You'll see a "USB" directory in MyLinux.)
Upgraders (but not first-time installers) will 
have to add this line in their /etc/fstab:
/dev/sda /mnt/usb auto noauto,users,noatime,async 0 0

ppp and kppp included for dial-up modem users

File Finder utility completely re-written.
Uses a combination of python code and findutils 
for fast and effective searching. Will also open 
many applications with their default editors.
Ability to stop mid-search, select case sensitivity 
and whether to look through subdirs. Other file options 
include opening parent folder in ROX-Filer and to display 
extended file information. Toolkit is Tk, opens and runs 
quickly.

GAMMApage update.

Icewm menu editor recompiled and its documentation repackaged.

ETextReader replaced with Gutenpy 
(text list format updated and could not accommodate with 
the older etext reader.)



Friday 11/10/2006:
Absolute Linux 11.0.3

Installer rewritten.
Should behave better -- allowing much better control of 
the install process. Also there is option to UPGRADE 
instead of install. When running SETUP, after you pick
your target and source partitions, you are given the 
option to either INSTALL or UPGRADE.

Above simply uses a modified UPGRADEPKG in the installer 
to update any of the base Absolute packages that have 
changed since you installed your older version. Packages 
you have added yourself will remain untouched. 

Added collapse button to icewm taskbar, had previously
forgotten to add the option when I updated the version.
Appears on right hand side (by clock) and allows taskbar
to slide out of the way to the right. 

Changed add user utility (absAdduser.py) script to 
set the INITIAL group to users. Oversight had left 
"users" without ability to play audio CDs.

Eliminated symlink to Python Tools that landed in / 
due to earlier renaming of documentation directory.
Also corrected location of pyfloppy and pySqlite docs.

Added /etc/absolute-version file for possible future use.

Added a couple directory icons to ROX and...

Created a "getting started" folder in /usr/doc and linked to 
desktop for root. Should come in handy for new users and I will 
add to the contents as I go along... suggestions welcome :)



Friday 10/27/2006:
Absolute Linux 11.0.2

Install now runs vidconfig script on first boot 
to build a better xorg.conf, with probed monitor ranges 
and correct video card driver.

Sound init (in /sbin/initinit) deleted if card not found
(So it will not continue to try after each boot)

Corrected font used by fluxbox Meta style (the default)

Icewm-session apps icehint, icewmbg and icesh renamed to *.bak 
to prevent them from running on each startx. They were unused. 
Done to speed things up a pinch.

Anagramarama has tweaked dictionary.



Friday 10/27/2006:
Absolute Linux 11.0.1

Firefox 2.0 - updated from 1.5.0.7

A couple extra utilities added

Alsa sound preconfigured on install if card detected and supported.

Corrected problems with "Spooky" game modifications.

Completed repackaging of most everything to eliminate my 
error of including a copyrighted name as part of the release name :(

[My bad. I wasn't trying to appropriate anything... Absolute being 
 really nothing more than a modification, I thought it would be 
 presumpuous to call it something else.

Because I want to keep the release numbers compatible with Slackware's,
anything I release between the minor numbers (11.1, 11.2, etc) will be 
11.0.1, 11.0.2, etc.



Sunday 10/22/2006:
Absolute Linux 11.0 released

CHANGES MADE to Slackware 11:

KDELibs changed to accommodate HTML-only system
(the rest of KDE is not installed, just libs, gamelibs and a few programs.)
Also Firefox is set to open url Links, Sylpheed to grab MAILTOs.
DUE TO KDE DCOP errors I updated the modified LIBS to 3.5.5 -- 
tested beautifully thereafter :)

Icewm and Rox-filer are the default window/file managers,
with a sparse Fluxbox/Fox-PathFinder as a BU.

Several server/development/older applications removed in order to  
replace with more commonly used desktop applications.
Many, many libs added in support of the additional applications.

Several configuration "helper"  utilities and creative menu items used to 
ease maintenance and setup of the distribution.

Documentation for several programs given places in separate documentation 
menu. Eases access for some of the more commonly used apps, and there is 
extended documentation for some of the programming capabilities, especially 
the scripting variety.

Sun JRE replaced with older but more stable Blackdown SDK. lends itself to 
development ability. Install ANT package and you can dev in Java.
(...and Firefox PLUGIN actually works on all tested systems.)

Custom icon library for Icewm. Some custom and customized themes. NO GTK2 
theming.

APM module is LOADED. (See /etc/rc.d/rc.modules) allowing true power-down 
on many desktops.

ROX-Filer compiled on-system and highly customized for application set.

Installer changed to bypass package selection and other tweaks.

Java had trouble with SUN jre, substituted Blackdown's jdk.
Played nice. Just prior to release I compiled MPlayer on-box (3.31) version.
Was finally able to stop, go back while videos were playing withou locking up 
Firefox for several seconds.
