Package recompilation effort underway

Hey folks! Two things recently happened to Slackware-current that you need to be aware of if you are using my Plasma5 packages from the ‘ktown‘ repository. libical was upgraded. The new shared library has a different version number, breaking several applications in my Plasma 5 package set. Mostly these are KDEPIM related. the openssl upgrade  dropped […]

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.

Slackware multilib updates to match the changes in slackware-current
