Big Update on -Current


The wait is now over...
massive update is coming up on -Current and also -stable (security updates only):

Code:
Wed Feb 1 23:20:04 UTC 2012
$(fortune) just obtained logging in to stamp the Changelog, finally:
       "You single-handedly fought your way into this hopeless mess."
Well, we'll work on rectifying that situation. :-) Sorry about the
lack of updates... everything here blew up all at once, it seemed, but
equipment, upstream targets, and reality all seem to be settling down
enough to get these updates out and have them be an actual improvement
over what's already up. Hope to have more soon. Cheers!

Hey folks! Have a few overdue updates to the toolchain. This has all been
built and rebuild (and upgraded) far too many times IMHO to wait around yet
again to get 3.2.1 in place and bump some compiler deps to get ARM working...
what was that about the echo $(fortune -m "goal of Computer Science") ?
Anyway, please test and report problems and we'll have another round here
shortly.

Holy smokes! That's a lot of updating!

New kernel and updates to gcc and glibc -- those seem significant.

i'm in a process of upgrading those packages right now, except for the kernel and Firefox as i compile my own kernel and use the binary package from Mozilla (it allows me to use auto-update feature)

Actually it's not that big really
GLIBC was only rebuilt and some of the entries were only upgraded packages (such as kernels which upgraded from 2.6.38 to 3.2.1 and then 3.2.2), but then it's like finding an oasis in the middle of the desert

Holy mother, upgrading Firefox, Thunderbird and Seamonkey result crashes, I can not launch them anymore. I could catch a message during upgrade and after installation: /sbin/ldconfig: /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6 is not a symbolic link

Now I get this when trying to launch:

Firefox:
Code:
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib64/firefox-10.0/libxpcom.so:
/usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by /usr/lib64/seamonkey/libxul.so)
Couldn't load XPCOM.
Thunderbird:

Code:
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib64/thunderbird-10.0/libxpcom.so:
/usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by /usr/lib64/thunderbird-10.0/libxul.so)
Couldn't load XPCOM.

I had to downgrade Firefox, Thunderbird to be able to launch them again. Until then I have to find out what the hell happened..
