Woof, Wary coming soon

October 03, 2011 — BarryK
I am getting back up to speed after taking a couple of days off.

Recently, two significant bugs were fixed in Woof, one dating back to 2009, where incorrect usage of 'fuser' in rc.shutdown caused a reboot instead of a shutdown (when the latter was desired), the other a more recent problem with kernels compiled with builtin USB drivers, causing save-files to be found twice at bootup.
Both of these are documented in this blog.

Woof is looking pretty good now. In the morning I'll have a bit of a read of Wary/Racy/Slacko threads in the Forum. Either later in the day or early next day I will probably upload Woof and Wary.

One buglet with using xz compression in a woof built distro is that mksquashfs4.2 (and unsquashfs) is not included in the final build. I built Slacko with k2.6.39.4 and this has surfaced. If this is intentional then no problem, I can fix it at my end. Could even be my problem, haven't checked. Thanks.
