Another big update in slackware-current

Fire in the hole! Damn the torpedoes. With 281 new lines in the ChangeLog.txt, this update to slackware-currrent can be called a big one. But the real interesting stuff is not just those sheer number of updated packages – it’s the new 4.1.6 Linux kernel, the gcc 4.9.3 compiler suite, glibc 2.22 C libraries, mesa 10.6.4,  a new […]

Rebuilt multilib gcc compiler suite for slackware-current

There were many updates for Slackware-current last night. One of them was a rebuilt gcc compiler suite, and therefore an updated multilib compiler set was due as well. The new multilib gcc packages are now online, The set of 32-bit “compat32” packages for slackware64-current has also been refreshed. The gcc packages had to be rebuilt because of […]

Glibc was patched against a new vulnerability, CVE-2015-0235, for which the only known exploit currently is in the MTA Exim (software which is not part of Slackware) and an exploit for this vulnerability is difficult to write […]

Slackware-current – new multilib gcc compiler suite

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 […]
