There were a couple of nice updates in the Slackware-current ChangeLog today – new kernel (3.14.3), new binutils (18.104.22.168.3), new glibc (2.19) and a rebuilt gcc. Not to speak of two new packages: libnftnl and nftables, which bring a new packet filtering framework on Linux.
It’s my birthday today and I took a day off to be with my family, so there was time enough to build new versions of multilib glibc and gcc :-). They are at their usual download locations:
- http://www.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/current/ (the primary server)
- http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/multilib/current/ (my fast mirror)
Remember, a multilib configuration is needed if you want to use binary-only 32-bit software on 64-bit Slackware – think of Valve’s Steam Client, the WINE emulator, the Pipelight browser plugin, Citrix client etc.
