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 will now also create or update these two new packages.
Remember, if you want to check (without actually creating anything) if the massconvert32.sh script will update any of your compat32 packages or add new ones, just run the script as follows in the directory where you already have your “a-compat32”, “ap-compat32”, …, “xap-compat32” subdirectories (this example uses a local mirror of 32-bit Slackware-current):
# massconvert32.sh -n -q -i /local/path/to/mirror/of/slackware-current/slackware/
The output could be something like this:
libaio: new package will be converted
lzo: new package will be converted
