[slackware-security]  udev reissued for 12.2/current  (SSA:2009-111-02)

Updated udev packages are available for Slackware 12.2, and -current to fix
a serial device ownership regression in 12.2, adjust the perms on /dev/rtc0,
and make sure that the /dev/root symlink is properly created.


Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/udev-141-i486-2_slack12.2.tgz:
  Fixed a regression with serial/dialout device ownership.
  Slackware 12.2 uses the 'uucp' group for these devices, but the newer
  version of udev has changed them to 'dialout', leading to log errors and
  an incorrect group ownership for serial devices since the 'dialout' group
  does not exist on Slackware 12.2.
  This update changes the serial device group ownership back to 'uucp'.
  Thanks to Alexander Pravdin for the fast bug report.
  Changed the permissions on the real time clock (/dev/rtc0) so that all
  users can read it.
  Modified rc.udev so that the /dev/root symlink is created.
  Thanks to Piter Punk!
+--------------------------+

Here are the details from the Slackware -current ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
a/udev-141-i486-2.tgz:  Changed the permissions on the real time clock
  (/dev/rtc0) so that all users can read it.
  Modified rc.udev so that the /dev/root symlink is created.
  Thanks to Piter Punk!
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
