Slackware multilib updates to match the changes in slackware-current

There was yet another update of slackware-current today. The 150+ lines of ChangeLog.txt are not as massive as previous updates but still, lots of polishing and under-the-hood improvements, a couple of security updates (bind, cups-filters, libpng, mozilla-firefox and openssl), two new packages (libtirpc and rpcbind) to replace the removed portmap package; a fresh version of the GCC compiler suite (5.3.0) and […]

Updated multilib packages for -current

The recent update of packages in slackware-current demanded a similar update in the set of “compat32” packages for those who are running a 64bit Slackware multilib computer. On request, I have added two new packages: libaio-compat32 and lzo-compat32. Both packages cover a missing dependency, one for mariadb and the other for cairo. The massconvert32.sh script […]

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. Today I finally built GCC 5.2.0_multilib packages and uploaded them to the server. Along with the new compilers, I also refreshed the set of “compat32” packages […]

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 […]
