How long before slackbuilds get updated to 14.1
 
Just wondering if anyone knows how long it usually takes. I've tried to use the 14.0 versions and a few just wont finish.
Some of the slackbuilds that had errors were gtkglext, celestia, and stellarium.
I found a gtkglext package for 14.1 on an unofficial repo but haven't found the others yet.

No inside info, but I do believe they are getting close! Hours? days?

You know Slackware.. 'When it's ready'. Be patient bro.

To know what's cooking, have a look at the archives. Obviously administrators are pretty busy working at it, huge thanks to them.

It's very close, you should see them soon :)
most of the changes are now included in the GIT master, but if you are impatient, go clone our GIT repository

well not fair to say when the title 14.1 will be out if you look at the changes of 14.0 over the last year you will see the never ending change.
so just because it reads 14.0 right now I am sure many of them stable builds as of now will be in here.
I try to use ponce's git to test things and look at it. but thats just me.

This is about the Slackbuilds.org repo, not Slackware itself.

I am using slackware 14.1 and slackbuilds 14.0 now : )

I also use few slackbuilds from 14.0 on fresh install of slackware 14.1. but, whenever the repo is open, I'm going to upgrade

Many thanks to the SBO admins for their tireless efforts! We greatly appreciate what you do for us. :)

Then you have the luck to only use those SBo scripts that work also on 14.1. Many do not, just have a look at the SBo mailing list.

Still waiting for an answer for my question there, maybe he hasn't seen it yet and it will be faster to get an answer here: Where can I see orphaned packages?
