New multilib gcc and glibc coming up for Slackware 13.1 RC1

Hi folks

As the Slackware ChangeLog states:

Fri May 14 19:37:13 UTC 2010
Good hello! We will call this update Slackware 13.1 RC1. With this, the
kernel, compiler, and glibc versions are “golden”, and everything is
pretty much ready to release. Last call for bug reports…

I’m in the process of building the multilib versions of the new gcc and the recompiled glibc packages which entered Slackware-current today. Pat Volkerding caught me with this update while I was on holiday, so I did not have the time to prepare packages before.

In the meantime, if you are running Slackware64-current and using my multilib gcc/glibc , then you can just update to the latest -current excluding Slackware’s non-multilib gcc and glibc. My updated packages will be available tomorrow.

Cheers, Eric

EDIT 15-may-2010:

I have uploaded the multilib versions of glibc and gcc for Slackware 13.1 here: http://slackware.com/~alien/multilib/13.1/. A detailed multilib setup HOWTO for Slackware is here: http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=slackware:multilib

no hurry Eric, and thanx for the ultra-fast response to the changelog.

Thanks a lot Eric :)
I’m more and more thinking this would a very valuable addition to extra/ , just the multilib gcc and glibc.

Wow…thanks again Eric for this work. Just one of the ways Slackware really pulls way ahead of the other distro pack:)

Hello Eric,

Just switched to Slackware 64 and multilib.
Now I’m in a big trouble. I want to be able to build packages for both 64bit and pure 32bit (no multilib).
Until now I managed to build some packages for pure 32bit but I have big problems with cmake and KDE dependent packages.
Is there a chance to have a multilib aware cmake? My 64 multilib system detects KDE dir in /usr/lib64 (with 32dev sourced). I tried to play with cmake -D switches, I managed to change the phonon lib but no luck with libkdeui which is still searched in /usr/lib64.
Here is a sample:
