Multilib updates: gcc and glibc for slackware-current
The update which was announced for slackware-current today mentioned new gcc and glibc packages alongside a new kernel. The 4.4.17 kernel should fix the issue with overlayfs which affected the Slackware Live Edition. The updated gcc-5.4.0 and glibc-2.24 packages warranted a similar update to their multilib versions.
New to multilib or don’t know what it is all about? Read the multilib article found in the Slackware Documentation Project.
So I built the packages tonight and they are accompanied by some updates to the “compat32” set for various Slackware releases. Download the new multilib packages here:
Have fun! Eric
