Multilib updates and more still to come

blueSW-64px
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 ready (tomorrow).

Official download locations for multilib on slackware-current:

Have fun! Eric

Hello alien,

Could you please provide a multilib update for the 14.1 glibc-zoneinfo package please? The one in your repository is glibc-zoneinfo-2015g_multilib-noarch-1alien while the one recently provided for 14.1 patches is glibc-zoneinfo-2016a-1_slack14.1

Cheers

lemin, there is no longer a glibc-zoneinfo in my multilib repository for recent versions of Slackware.
See this ChangeLog entry:
+--------------------------+
Sat Feb 6 20:08:54 UTC 2016
13.37/glibc-zoneinfo: Removed. The Slackware package is multilib-agnostic,
14.0/glibc-zoneinfo: Removed. The Slackware package is multilib-agnostic,
14.1/glibc-zoneinfo: Removed. The Slackware package is multilib-agnostic,
use Slackware's own package instead.

Hi Eric! Thanks for the new packages and for all you do for the Slackware community!

I just would like to say that I’ve just installed the updated multilib packages and your Steam client after them, but it still complains about the missing of libc.so.6 and don’t want to execute. Can you help us? Thank you one more time!

Best regards,

Josan Neves.

The latest install killed skype. I am getting:

/usr/bin/skype: line 26: 18847 Segmentation fault LD_PRELOAD=$LIB32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so PULSE_LATENCY_MSEC=60 $SKYPE/skype

Any help

There’s an issue with Skype for Linux anyways, since this week Linux users cannot connect to Skype contacts who are on Windows or OsX: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/02/25/linux_skype_outage_outrage/

The segmentation fault is not something I can fix. Microsoft will have to fix their Linux client.

Thanks Eric. I am adding my gripe to MS (sic) as well. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/02/25/linux_skype_outage_outrage/
