Problem is that gnutls, p11 and nettle have to be upgraded/installed in order to get the upgraded version of wget running. On my server where DOWNLOAD_ALL=on is configured the "slackpkg upgrade-all" went well, but since wget was broken I could not run "slackpkg install-new".

I had to rebuild google-chrome.

USB was no longer working until I rebooted the system.

slackpkg install-new is always recommended to be executed before upgrade-all as new packages may be introduced
even if the order is correct, we still need to download wget manually first because it will install like the following:
- nettle (install-new)
- p11 (install-new)
- gnutls (upgrade-all) <- wget is now broken due to changes in gnutls
- wget (upgradepkg manually)

about USB, i didn't test before reboot, so i didn't aware of it

oh my, the dilemma... get some work done this weekend, or upgrade with the risk to break stuff and spend the rest of the day fixing things while having a beer

Now syncing...

Thanks Slack team!

I installed -current in VBox on wednesday, thought it was about time I had another go at it. And then this happens.
Might need something considerably stronger than beer...

Thanks to willysr and markush - I had a very uneventful upgrade. I do have 3 dead links to delete, but I'm gonna be sure before I delete them. For the moment, everything seems just fine! That said, I am only about 4 minutes running..... hehehe!

I get the feeling I am about to screw up.

Code:
ldconfig: /usr/lib64/libnssutil3.so is not a symbolic link

ldconfig: /usr/lib64/libnspr4.so is not a symbolic link

ldconfig: /usr/lib64/libplc4.so is not a symbolic link
These are not dead links, and they are also present in /usr/lib64/seamonkey-2.10.1
Something didn't go right, but it does not seem to be a problem yet. Got more lookin' to do.

Here another question regarding p11-kit for slackware-current 32bit.

It is in the changelogs but on both mirrors I use (for my slackware-32bit laptop) I cannot seem to find the package ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/slackwar...t/slackware/n/ and ftp://sunsite.informatik.rwth-aachen...t/slackware/n/. Maybe I am confused here, but I built p11-kit with the slackbuilscript from source and installed it, but when I ran "slackpkg clean-system" it wanted to remove p11-kit. p11-kit is necessary for wget to run.

For my slackware64 computers the package was no problem.

Markus

clementine segfaults


Code:
$ clementine --verbose
Segmentation fault
Recompiling didn't produce any errors, and all libraries are found. Tried moving the config and rc files in ~/ away, but alas.

Amarok plays fine though.

Does anyone know how to get more debug info? The segfault message is all I get.

edit: maybe I should add that this is after today's update

Had a problem with the text consoles on this upgrade.

agetty would not start on boot.

Turns out agetty does not like the new --noclear option in the /etc/inittab. Going back to my inittab.old fixed the problem.

--noclear is an option in mingetty, I wonder if upstream has gone and changed things without checking.

If I were to do upgrade-all before install-new how would I then fix my system? Seems like I broke something...

You've probably broken wget. wget needs the following packages to be installed/upgraded before wget is upgraded: p11-kit, nettle and gnutls!

You can download this packages from the mirror and install with installpkg or upgradepkg respectively.

Which section of the mirror would I find the package in? I've been trying to find it and haven't located it yet. Thanks for your help. It is appreciated.

Well, if you're running current-32bit, the p11-kit packages is missing, you'll find it in sources/n/ the others are located in the n series.
If you need p11-kit, you need the sourcpackage and the slackbuildscript, both in the same directory, then make the slackbuildscript executable and run it, you'll find the package in /tmp (this is only necessary for 32bit).
