Rebuild for glibc-2.17_multilib in slackware-current

Pat’s inquery on LinuxQuestions.org about how to “backtrack to sanity” in order to stabilize slackware-current and start laying out the next release, resulted in a kernel upgrade (3.8.8) and accompanying glibc rebuild. I built the “companion” update of the glibc multilib packages last night. They can be downloaded from: http://alien.slackbook.org/slackware/multilib/current/ (the primary server, but bandwidth-capped) […]

Multilib version of Slackware’s “11-11-11″ glibc

Very close now!  But we’ll likely hold […]

Slackware 13.37 Release Candidate 2

We have progressed to the second release candidate for the upcoming release of Slackware stable (version 13.37 no less). There is probably not going to be a lot of other updates before final release; the TODO list should be quite short now. The only one to know for sure is Pat Volkerding… I am only […]

Multilib updates to go with new kernel

Hi folks! Slackware -current’s kernel has been updated to 2.6.37.3 (something many of you probably did not expect) as part of the large update leading to the first release candidate for Slackware 13.37. This newer kernel seems to work better on all the developers’ computers especially for X sessions.Also speakup (a kernel driver for speech […]
