Multilib update for slackware-current: gcc-4.8.0

There were updates to kernel, gcc and lots of other stuff yesterday in our Slackware development tree. See the Slackware-current ChangeLog.txt for all the details. It seems that Patrick is getting into the habit of telling a lot more about the decision process around the development than he used to. It is nice to read that information, I am sure you all agree to that.

The update of the gcc packages needs to be followed by a similar update in my multilib repository. The new gcc-4.8.0_multilib packages have been available since yesterday, but I did not have an opportunity to blog about that. Downloads are available from places like:

Remember, a multilib configuration is (only) needed if you want to use binary-only 32-bit software on 64-bit Slackware – think of Valve’s Steam Client, the WINE emulator, Citrix client etc.

If you are looking for instructions on how to add or update multilib on your 64-bit Slackware, check out our Slackware Documentation Project which has this information and much more.

Cheers, Eric

You are right, Helios.

I forgot to let the massconvert32.sh script check for updated BUILD numbers of the Slackware32 packages.
I fixed the script and will upload a new compat32-tools package as well as a refreshed set of “-compat32″ packages for Slackware-current.

Hello Bob.
I am running Slackware14 64bits with your multilib packages. I was trying to compile libvirt but it was failing. I realized that the multilib package openldap-client is missing the file /usr/lib64/libldap.la, I removed that package and installed the pure 64bits version of that openldap-client and now I was able to compile libvirt successfully. Could you check why that file /usr/lib64/libldap.la is not present in the multilib package? Tks in advance!

Bob, never mind. The packages that you provided are 32bits packages that can run on a 64bits system, that’s why that package didn’t include the lib /usr/lib64/libldap.la. I just took sometime to understand that. :)
