Updates for LibreOffice and multilib, more to come

Because of recent updates in slackware-current (in this case, the boost package) the LibreOffice in my own repository stopped working. Library conflict. Don’t you love the life on the bleeding edge ūüėČ By co√Įncidence, the Document Foundation had just released a new version of their LibreOffice sources, so instead of recompiling the old 5.4.3 packages […]

Some thoughts on the recent updates in Slackware-current

¬†Last week, a new LTS kernel (4.9.26), new glibc (2.25) and a new gcc compiler suite (7.1.0) landed in Slackware-current. Note that gcc no longer contains the Java compiler (gcj): subsequently Slackware’s¬†gcc-java package has been removed from slackware-current. We are at the head of the herd again folks. There is not yet any other distro […]

Read the multilib article¬†found in the Slackware Documentation Project. Download the new¬†multilib […]

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? […]

Multilib updates and more still to come

You will have noticed the update of slackware-current today. There’s a new kernel (4.4.2) and an updated glibc which addresses¬†CVE-2015-7547. So I took the opportunity to upload my¬†multilib version of the glibc¬†packages for slackware-current. I also updated¬†my¬†set of “compat32” packages¬†and am compiling a glibc for Slackware64 14.1 at the moment. This will be uploaded when […]
