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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]

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 […]
