Our checkinstall may not work correctly for next release.

An incompatibility with the newest coreutils seems to have bitten a bunch of people, specially users of the recently released Slackware 12. A new checkinstall version will be released soon which will address this issue. In the meantime, as a workaround you can use the "--fstrans=no" command line flag when invoking checkinstall.

We're going to have to look into this when our toolchain changes.

Looks like that problem will be solved before VL 5.9 is developed:
