After performing a slackpkg upgrade-all to -current a lot of applications fail to work returning the following error:

conky: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Can someone give me any direction? Thanks.

probably the version you have installed has been built on slackware-14.0 and so it got linked to the libraries it contains, but -current got libraries/programs in some cases of versions greater than the one of -14.0.
when this happens you have to rebuild the application/library (in this case conky) that links to the libraries of -14.0.

Missing symlink, probably. According to the MANIFEST, in package /l/at-spi2-atk-2.6.2-i486-1.txz, there is a file /usr/lib/ but no /

To check, make the symlink yourself and see if that works:

ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
EDIT Didn't see ponce's answer before posting, now I'm not sure. Won't hurt trying, anyway

You didn't install new packages:

slackpkg install-new

Thank you. Your suggestion worked. Why is that? Does upgrade-all not install the new packages?

no, it only upgrade packages installed on your system
