Updates for LibreOffice, Chromium, Calibre, QBittorrent, Veracrypt

I have been preparing a stable release of liveslak, and I wanted the PLASMA5 ISO to have up-to-date software taken from my own “alien” package repository. So I downloaded the latest sources and have prepared new packages for Slackware-current on which the Live ISOs are based, for the following: LibreOffice: LibreOffice 5.1.3 is a minor […]

Multilib updates and more still to come

You will have noticed the update of slackware-current today. There’s a new kernel (4.4.2) and an updated glibc which addresses CVE-2015-7547. So I took the opportunity to upload my multilib version of the glibc packages for slackware-current. I also updated my set of “compat32” packages and am compiling a glibc for Slackware64 14.1 at the moment. This will be uploaded when […]

Finally, LibreOffice 3.5.2 compiles

A while ago when Libreoffice 3.5.0 was released, I found out to my chagrin that I was unable to successfully compile it on Slackware 13.37. There was no change when 3.5.1 came out, but thankfully we now have a new maintenance release, LibreOffice 3.5.2. Lo and behold, I could successfully compile packages, but the SlackBuild […]
