In slackware-current two inter-related packages were updated yesterday: libmpc and gcc. It turns out that the update of libmpc caused a library version change. Since the gcc compiler is dynamically linked to libmpc, the gcc packages had to be recompiled in order to make it link against the new libmpc.so.3 library. Another reason for recompiling the […]
The latest update to Slackware-current brought us a new kernel (3.14.5) and a new gcc compiler (4.8.3). This warranted a build of new multilib gcc packages. Get them from your nearest mirror. I also refreshed the “compat32″ layer of packages – this is the set of converted 32-bit Slackware packages which you’ll need at a minimum, so that you will […]
In Slackware-current there was an update (or rather a rebuild) of the gcc 4.8.0 compiler suite, which re-adds several header files that seem to have accidentally dropped out of the installation.I have applied the same changes to the gcc packages in my multilib repository. The rebuiltgcc-4.8.0_multilib packages can be downloaded from any of these locations […]
There were updates to kernel, gcc and lots of other stuff yesterday in our Slackware development tree. See the Slackware-current ChangeLog.txt for all the details. It seems that Patrick is getting into the habit of telling a lot more about the decision process around the development than he used to. It is nice to read […]
Pat Volkerding rebuilt the gcc 4.5.1 packages for Slackware-current, adding support for LTO (Link Time Optimization). Apparently that feature was requested a lot. Consequently I have rebuilt my multilib versions of the gcc-4.5.1 packages for Slackware64-current; get them at http://slackware.com/~alien/multilib/current/ (mirror site: http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/multilib/current/).
