Hi arch community, portmap is replaced by rpcbind in the [core] repository. It has more features, like ipv6 support and nfs4 support. Please change your /etc/rc.conf file accordingly. Important nfs-utils upgrade: - NFS4 support is now implemented This is a rather important upgrade, you are going to have to change config files. /etc/rc.conf daemons changes: 1) Change portmap to rpcbind 2) Change nfslock to nfs-common 3) Change nfsd to nfs-server Extended configuration options for NFS (clients & server) are available in: /etc/conf.d/nfs-common /etc/conf.d/nfs-server Please change them to your needs.
Hi arch community, The new 2.6.30 kernel series moved to the [core] repository. Upstream changes: http://kernelnewbies.org/LinuxChanges Arch Linux changes: - removed the acpi-dsdt-initramfs.patch There is no functional patch anymore available. If you need a custom dsdt, please compile it yourself into your custom kernel. - removed snd-pcspkr module #14958 - added dccp #15071 - added SCHED_DEBUG=y - changed to lzma kernel compression - removed rt2500 module it is supported by in kernel drivers now
The new module-init-tools 3.8 package changes the location of the configuration file: /etc/modprobe.conf is no longer read, instead /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf is used. Files in /etc/modprobe.d without a .conf suffix will be ignored in the future. Please adjust your local configuration files after the update.
After publishing the article discussing a misuse of our old logo in the June Newsletter, I received an unexpected e-mail from the operator of the company in question. He has made a formal apology and has removed the logo from his website. We thank him for his compliance and wish him well in designing a new logo to represent his company. Apparently he received several vulgar and threatening e-mails from members of our community. I am very disappointed that this has occurred; I thought our users were above this sort of behaviour. I did not intend to motivate such actions, and I hope our community can act more maturely in the future.
