Three security advisory were released today to fix security vulnerabilities found in httpd (Apache), mozilla-firefox, and mozilla-thunderbird.

Meanwhile in -current, the default kernel stock has been raised to 3.14.13 and there are several minor update, nano upgraded to 2.3.6 and emacs is rebuilt to rename ctag manpage to avoid conflict. There's also a cosmetic changes to the installer as well after a bug was reported in LQ.

Willy Sudiarto Raharjo: Slackware is 21 Years Old

On July 16 1993, Patrick Volkerding announced the availability of Slackware 1.00 on comp.os.linux usenet and since then, Slackware has become one of the oldest Linux distribution that are still actively maintained up to now.

These is his official announcement at that time:

From: Patrick J. Volkerding (bf703@cleveland.Freenet.Edu)
Subject: ANNOUNCE: Slackware Linux 1.00
Newsgroups: comp.os.linux
Date: 1993-07-16 17:21:20 PST

The Slackware Linux distribution (v. 1.00) is now available for
anonymous FTP. This is a complete installation system designed for
systems with a 3.5" boot floppy. It has been tested extensively with
a 386/IDE system. The standard kernel included does not support SCSI,
but if there's a great demand, I might be persuaded to compile a few
custom kernels to put up for FTP.

This release is based largely on the SLS system, but has been enhanced and
modified substantially. There are two main disk series, A (13 disks) and
X (11 disks). Some of the features:

Series A:
About what you'd expect from SLS series A, B, and C. Plus:
Source for the Linux DOS emulator version 0.49.
The FAQ for kernel level 99pl10.
Kernel source and image at .99pl11 Alpha.
[compiled with these options: math emulation support, normal hard drive
support, TCP/IP, System V IPC, -m486, minix fs, ext2 fs, msdos fs, nfs,
proc support, and PS/2 style mouse support. You may need to recompile if
you have some other type of busmouse. The kernel was compiled with libc
4.4.1, g++ 2.4.5]
The new keytable utilities.
The NET-2 networking package, preconfigured to use loopback.
A public domain version of ksh, and tcsh 6.04 (with the bugs worked out)
GNU gcc, g++, and Objective-C at versions 2.4.5
Includes and libraries at version 4.4.1
mailx, quota utilities, experimental winapi source, sound drivers.
The TCL toolkit and samples.

In addition, the installation program has been improved to offer more
information about the packages (and the installation procedure itself)
as you install.

The install program can also automatically install LILO, configuring it
to boot either from your master boot record or from OS/2's Boot Manager.

Series X:
Also, all the packages you would get in the SLS X series, plus:
XFree-86 version 1.3.
Open Look Virtual Window Manager made the default window manager.
XS3 server offers support for S3 based video cards.
XV 3.00 Image viewer is included.
PEX files from the XFree-86 distribution are included.

Although TEX support is not included in the Slackware release, the you may
install the SLS T series from the install program.

At this point, the install disk itself is running .99pl8. I'm working on it :^)
Also, installation from other than a 3.5" floppy has not been tested, but might
work. 5.25" floppy will not work because of file sizes. At this point, I have
no plans to support a 5.25" version.

How to get the Slackware(tm) release:

The Slackware release may be obtained be anonymous FTP from
mhd3.moorhead.msus.edu in directory /pub/linux/slackware. At least initially,
this release will be in the form of 3.5" disk images which should be copied
to floppies using the RAWRITE.EXE program, or dd under Linux.

Please note that our FTP software does not support limiting the number of
concurrent anonymous logins. PLEASE try to go easy on this machine. If things
get out of hand, access may be restricted.

Other sites are, of course, welcome to help out with the load by mirroring
the distribution.

If you find any problems with the distribution, or if you have any suggestions
for improvements, please let me know. If you know of more up-to-date versions
of software in the distribution, I'd like to hear about that, too.

Satria Ady Pradana: Setup Slackware as Basic TFTP Server

TFTP or Trivial File Transfer Protocol is a transfer protocol notable for its simplicity. TFTP is generally used for automated transfer of configuration or boot files between machines in a local environment, such as routers and PXE (Preboot eXecution Environment) mechanism. Compared to FTP, TFTP is extremely limited, providing no authentication and is rarely used interactively by a user.

There are many TFTP implementations, such as:

  • GNU inetutils
  • tftp-hpa
  • atftp
  • tftp-serveretc…

In this article, we will discuss about how to set Slackware as a basic  TFTP server. In specific, we will use tftp-hpa which is included by default. This article is tested using Slackware64 14.0 and tftp-hpa.

Upgrade or Not?

Slackware has shipped a TFTP server by default which is tftp-hpa. The version is 0.49. However we can install the latest tftp-hpa with simple process. If you decided to install the latest version, follow this section. Otherwise you can skip to next section.

Download the latest version of tftp-hpa here: www.kernel.org/pub/software/network/tftp/tftp-hpa/. The latest version is 5.2 which can be downloaded here: www.kernel.org/pub/software/network/tftp/tftp-hpa/tftp-hpa-5.2.tar.xz

Now invoke following series of command to build TFTP (server and client):

tar -Jxf tftp-hpa-5.2.tar.xz
cd tftp-hpa-5.2
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
cd tftp && strip --strip-unneeded tftp
cd ../tftpd && strip --strip-unneeded tftpd
cd ..

Now install it (make sure you are using root privileges):

make install

Set up

By default, the inetd use /tftpboot directory as root directory of the TFTP server. We can however change the directory to something else. Make sure the directory exists, whichever directory you use.

Suppose we want to use /usr/local/tftpboot as root directory:

mkdir -p /usr/local/tftpboot

Then we give a proper permission:

chmod +777 /usr/local/tftpboot
chown nobody /usr/local/tftpboot

Next we add the following entry to the /etc/inetd.conf file as a single line. Or you can edit it and make sure it’s uncommented.

tftp  dgram   udp     wait    root    /usr/sbin/in.tftpd  in.tftpd -s /usr/local/tftpboot -r blksize

Then, restart the inetd using root privileges.

/etc/rc.d/rc.inetd restart

Testing

Now, let’s testing our TFTP server. In our simple scenario, we will create a plain text and fill something there. Then we will download it via tftp.

echo "Xathrya was testing the TFTP server" >> /usr/local/tftpboot/test.txt

To download it, use:

tftp 127.0.0.1 -c get test.txt

And see in current directory, whether we have successfully download it:

cat test.txt

It should print out “Xathrya was testing the TFTP server”.

wget http://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/churchyard/chromium-russianfedora/repo/fedora-20/churchyard-chromium-russianfedora-fedora-20.repo -O /etc/yum.repos.d/

Update database yum/dnf

yum update

Disini saya menggunakan repository dari Russian Fedora, untuk menginstall chrome stable jalankan perintah

yum install chromium -y

perintah diatas sama saja, bila anda menggunakan repo dari Spot. Untuk menjalankan Chromium buka Application Menu -> Internet -> Chromium Web Browser
