This Week's Slackware Current Changelog Updates

Blimey, lots of activity in the Slackware changelog in the last few days so we'll better post them all together. Otherwise you could of course just look at the Slackware page or subscribe to the emails. So here we are. Does all this activity mean we're nearing a release? Let's hope so.

a/pkgtools-15.0-noarch-19.txz: Rebuilt.
       installpkg, makebootdisk, removepkg, upgradepkg: don't try to remove admin
       directories (supposedly "in case" they are a symlink).

       rc.6: stop haveged
       rc.S: start rc.cgconfig and rc.cgred

Wed Jun 13 21:55:19 UTC 2018
a/etc-15.0-x86_64-5.txz: Rebuilt.

       starting syslogd, klogd, and udev in rc.M.
       rc.M: start rc.rndg (we don't ship it or rng-tools) after udev.
       H. Peter Anvin says that it's fine to run both haveged and rndg,
       and I trust his opinion on that.
       Thanks to GazL.
ap/at-3.1.20-x86_64-4.txz: Rebuilt.
       Fixed wrong variable in rc.atd. Thanks to upnort.

       setup.services: add support for rc.atd and rc.crond
