In Slackware-current there was an update (or rather a rebuild) of the gcc 4.8.0 compiler suite, which re-adds several header files that seem to have accidentally dropped out of the installation.I have applied the same changes to the gcc packages in my multilib repository. The rebuiltgcc-4.8.0_multilib packages can be downloaded from any of these locations (mirror servers may need to catch up still):
- http://slackware.com/~alien/multilib/current/ (the primary server)
- http://alien.slackbook.org/slackware/multilib/current/ (slackbook mirror, bandwidth-capped)
- http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/multilib/current/ (my mirror)
- http://repo.ukdw.ac.id/alien-multilib/ (willy’s mirror)
Read the articles on docs.slackware.com about how to add or update multilib on your 64-bit Slackware.
Running slack64current, upgraded to the above multilib. trying to compile kernel 3.8.5. get following error when i issue make menuconfig
Error: expecting string instruction after rep’
@rahul: I get message, too, when building something known as “libblkmaker”. I wonder why.
Looks like it’s a bug: Bug 53847
I’ve been getting a lot of “expecting string instruction after rep'” errors ever since updating to 4.8.0…
I found details about your report on http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg391554.html
Please note that Slackware-current has a more recent version of binutils than you are using (/binutils-184.108.40.206.1 in -current versus 220.127.116.11.2 on your cmputer).
It looks like you did a partial upgrade?
Yes, it was a version mismatch. I upgraded to binutils-18.104.22.168.1 and the issue went away. thanks
Can’t upgrade from gslapt using …/multilib/14.0 repo, gives HTTP error. I suppose it’s due PACKAGE MIRROR: and PACKAGE LOCATION: mismatch in 14.0/PACKAGES.TXT. Upgrading from …/multilib repo goes OK, but it upgrades to current
bam, ask the slapt-get developers why you get failure. See http://software.jaos.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/slapt-get-user
Without you posting your error messages, I can not help you at all. The “PACKAGE LOCATION” lines in 14.0/PACKAGES.TXT are correct for the packages in that directory.
Can you please also tell me what multilib repository URL you have added in your gslaptrc file?
http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/multilib/ and http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/multilib/14.0/, the former works but upgrades to current, and the latter is not. Maybe 14.0/PACKAGES.TXT should include PACKAGE MIRROR: strings ended with …/multilib/14.0/?
