How stupid would converting the entire L and N series to compat32 packages be?


I'm stumped on what seems to be a multilb dependency issue. I was thinking about what is a blind and ignorant sledgehammer of a possible solution:

Modify the mass-convert.sh script to include the entire L and N series (seems a likely place to for the missing dependency to reside) then installpkg the resulting glut of packages. Aside from a lack of elegance how dumb does this sound?

I've had a few dependency issues myself, one thing that helped me was ldd <library or executable>. If you see any "not found" messages, you know what's wrong. I had to create a 32-bit compatibility library for glew a while back.

It would have been very stupid. The missing dependency was seamonkey (firefox isn't enough, even if the slackbuild is modified to link to firefox?) Kind of stupid to have a browser that depends on another browser, but all the same this is solved!
