Slackware 14.0 RC 5 available

In what will (hopefully) be the final development release before 14.0 ships.

Patrick’s comments from the changelog:

Here we go one more time with Slackware 14.0 release candidate 5.
Really, this time it is not a drill! Everything is in place and
ready to release at this point, and unless there’s some kind of
showstopper found (which doesn’t seem too likely after all the
testing that’s happened), the release can be expected soon.
After careful consideration and a considerable amount of internal
testing I did relent to give the kernel one more bump to 3.2.29,
so of course 3.2.30 was released a couple of hours ago. ;-)
But that’s not a showstopper, and it seems to be time to get off
the never-ending kernel upgrade treadmill until the next cycle
begins. Speaking of kernels, I added sample .configs for all the
3.x kernel branches in /testing. So test away, and if there are
any new problems (or old ones that we missed), let us know soon!
