LXer Linux News - Fri, 01/21/2022 - 07:37
The open source community is working on many simultaneous challenges, not the least of which is addressing vulnerabilities in the core of our projects, securing the software supply chain, and protecting it from threat actors. At the same time, community health is equally as important as the security and vitality of software code.

New install Slackware64 14.2 and Realtek RTL8101/2/6e Ethernet. No connection.

Linux Questions - Fri, 01/21/2022 - 07:06
New Slackware64 14.2 install on Acer Aspire One 725 60kk. lspci shows the Ethernet controller to be Realtek RTL8101/2/6e. I have run watch -n 1 ethtool eth0 and there appears to be a link to the attached Ethernet cable, as well as a blue indicator light on my laptop that appears to confirm the same thing. I have tried to run # slackpkg update but it is unable to connect to the relevant mirror. Yes, I have updated / corrected the URL in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors.

I need to get this working if I am at all to get this system working. Next step will be to get WiFi working, but I have documentation for that…

Linux Questions - Fri, 01/21/2022 - 05:24
I'm noticing that Haskell already has its own template, while Go and Rust don't, but there's already Go and Rust software on SBo.

[Slackware64-current] Upgrade of samba deleted /etc/samba/private/

Linux Questions - Fri, 01/21/2022 - 02:45
This evening I applied the most recent Slackware samba upgrade from 4.15.3 to 4.15.4. All seemed to go well, but upon checking syslog I discovered an entry which indicated the /etc/samba/private/smbpasswd file could not be found. On checking /etc/samba/ it became apparent that the /etc/samba/private/ directory had been completely removed by the upgrade.

Fortunately I was able to restore the missing directory from a nightly mirror. However, I'm fairly sure a package upgrade should not have removed this directory. It certainly hasn't done so in the past.

It may be worth looking into this before the next samba upgrade is pushed out. It's a bit odd, especially since the slackware samba packages don't appear to contain this directory (at least not in versions 4.15.2, 4.15.3 and 4.15.4 which are the only packages I have handy locally right now).

In case it's important, /etc/samba/private/ contained two files at the time of the upgrade: smbpasswd and smbpasswd-backup.
