Latest aalib breaks mplayer


I just installed the latest packages. mplayer returns:

Quote:
mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libaa.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
Latest packages included aalib-1.4rc5-i486-4.txz but no new mplayer.

Is the problem here that Slackware has mistakenly put the 64-bit aalib package in the non-64?

I see aaa_elflibs is also updated in -current... have you updated that as well? (it's blacklisted by default, but shouldn't be blacklisted if you are going to run -current)

I don't think tht this is true at all. In the best case scenario updating aaa elflib will take no effect but in the worst case it will break up everything. All libs contained in aaa should be also in other packages and get updated from here

True Celyr, except that, sometimes in -current, the update is needed until some other packages get updated. no idea if that is what's happening here as my -current is running fine, mplayer and all.

The aalib issues should be fixed now in some updates that just went up. Thanks for the patch, gmgf.
