New multilib packages for slackware-current

 Earlier today, there was a massive update to Slackware-current. The ride was fun, and I am fairly certain we’ll see some breakage. In fact, we found some already and fixed that in a quick update (mounting of Samba shares was broken after splitting the mount utility for Samba shares into its own “cifs-utils” package). So, […]

Slackware-current gets KDE 4.8.2, hooray

This time, the packages which I created are for Slackware-current only (32-bit as well as 64-bit). The packages are available in my ktown repository. Slackware 13.1 users who […]
