Slackware multilib updates to match the changes in slackware-current

There was yet another update of slackware-current today. The 150+ lines of ChangeLog.txt are not as massive as previous updates but still, lots of polishing and under-the-hood improvements, a couple of security updates (bind, cups-filters, libpng, mozilla-firefox and openssl), two new packages (libtirpc and rpcbind) to replace the removed portmap package; a fresh version of the GCC compiler suite (5.3.0) and […]

(Hopefully) final recompilations for KDE 5_15.11

 There was still some work to do about my Plasma 5 package repository. The recent updates in slackware-current broke several packages that were still linking to older (and no longer present) libraries which were part of the icu4c and udev packages. So finally I had the time to cure this situation. I rebuilt kdelibs, kde-workspace and […]

Updated multilib packages for -current

The recent update of packages in slackware-current demanded a similar update in the set of “compat32” packages for those who are running a 64bit Slackware multilib computer. On request, I have added two new packages: libaio-compat32 and lzo-compat32. Both packages cover a missing dependency, one for mariadb and the other for cairo. The massconvert32.sh script […]

Almost a beta

Well here it is… almost. Sat Nov 14 21:35:57 UTC 2015 Please enjoy “almost a beta.” Sorry we missed Friday the 13th this time. Yet another 200+ lines of updates in the ChangeLog.txt of slackware-current.  It’s obvious that Pat has been watching the LinuxQuestions threads closely. And we are again very bleeding edge, with the […]

Slackware-current got updated… 448 lines of ChangeLog

Another big update to slackware-current today. The ChangeLog.txt entry of “Thu Oct 29 20:12:14 UTC 2015” counts 448lines, and a little less than half of that number consists of updates to packages; the rest is rebuilds. A massive package recompilation occured because several core libraries got updated and Pat is quite conscientious in getting all the […]
