Cleanups from the -current update fallout

I think I have managed to fix most of the important breakage in my packages, after Slackware-current updated its icu4c package a couple of days ago. Recompiled packages are now available for -current: Regular packages: LibreOffice 5.0.3 KDE 5_15.11 packages: qt5 (which was bumped to 5.5.1 at the same time), step, akonadi4, akonadi, akonadi-search, akonadi-calendar and […]

GCC 5.2.0 multilib

I had a bit too much to do, so creating multilib versions of the new GCC compiler suite in Slackware-current was not on the top of my TODO list.

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 library. Another reason for recompiling the […]
