Made xgifb (driver for the XGI Video chipset used on the OpenRD systems) into a module, rather than being compiled in. The module is loaded from the initrd.
Removed make-3.80 because it was segfaulting, replacing it with make-3.81. make-3.80 had been kept around because older glibc versions and some libraries wouldn't build on ARM with newer versions of 'make', but this hasn't been the case for years now.
However, glibc-2.12.1 isn't building with make-3.82 but will with 3.81.
John O'Donnell reported that version 4.0.2 was seg faulting. The change log of this version mentions some crash fixes.
isolinux/*: Updated installer.
Adjusted wording used to describe how to exit the installer. "control+alt+del" is now suggested along with the "reboot" command, since most ARM devices do not have a keyboard attached. When choosing to exit the setup menu, you will now be presented with a dialog box asking whether you want to reboot or drop to shell.
Adjusted /etc/inittab to kill dropbear (sshd) to prevent remote SSH logins (which is the suggested method of installation) from lingering.
source/l/jre: Added a packaging script to build a Slackware package of the SUN/Oracle Embedded JRE for ARM. We cannot ship the binary since we don't have a licence, but if anybody wants a slightly easier time installing it on their systems, then the build script should help here.
The README.TXT file in this directory has more detail.
Along these lines, I've been thinking about the open source versions of Java for ARM - OpenJDK - but my initial investigations are that there is a lot of work to do this, and I'm not sure that the implementation is worth using on ARM. If anybody knows how to build the open source Java
stack then I'll be interested, though!
