Most recent upgrade in current causing firefox and slackpkg errors


Just updated to the latest current and having the following problems.

Running firefox from the cli show this:

Code:
/usr/lib64/firefox-3.6.12/firefox-bin: /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.14' not found (required by /usr/lib64/firefox-3.6.12/libxul.so)
So going off to troubleshoot using slackpkg I do a
Code:
slackpkg file-search libstdc++.so.6
and get the reply
Code:
[ installed ] - cxxlibs-6.0.13-x86_64-2
[uninstalled] - gcc-g++-4.5.1-x86_64-2
Running a locate libstdc++.so.6 reveals this:
Code:
/usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6.0.13
/usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6
So just in case, I try to install gcc-g++-4.5.1-x86_64-2 using slackpkg thus:
Code:
slackpkg install gcc-g++-4.5.1-x86_64-2
But this gives this error:
Code:
Looking for gcc-g++-4.5.1-x86_64-2 in package list. Please wait... DONE

No packages match the pattern for install. Try:

        /usr/sbin/slackpkg reinstall|upgrade
Anyone any idea what might be the problem here, with both or either problem.

TIA

I know you've probably already done this, but, did you run # slackpkg install-new before you issued slackpkg upgrade-all?

I think there is a small syntax error here
have you tried
Quote:
slackpkg install gcc-g++
(without the version numbers)

Hi there hitest. Yes I did the usual slackpkg update followed by install-new then upgrade-all. Ran Lilo as the kernel was upgraded, checked the new .conf files for the ones I wished to keep/merge/remove etc. Currently using Google chrome which works fine, but is not really to my liking. Anyhow, since my original post I have tried the latest FF 4.0b6 with the same error, so off now to grab the gcc-g++ via ftp to see if that does any good.

Hi igb,

Like this you mean


Code:
slackpkg install gcc-g++               

Looking for gcc-g++ in package list. Please wait... DONE

No packages match the pattern for install. Try:

        /usr/sbin/slackpkg reinstall|upgrade
As you can see, the same result

BTW, when I do
Quote:
slackpkg search gcc-g++
it returns:
Quote:
Looking for gcc-g++ in package list. Please wait... DONE

The list below shows all packages with name matching "gcc-g\+\+".

[ installed ] - gcc-g++-4.5.1-i486-2
[ installed ] - gcc-gfortran-4.5.1-i486-2
[ installed ] - gcc-gnat-4.5.1-i486-2

You can search specific files using "slackpkg file-search file".
Does this mean it sees the '+'s as in REGEXP?

Just to eliminate another possibility, vdemuth. Did you get any md5 checksum errors during the upgrade process?

Check if you have the latest glibc-solibs installed (2.12.1).

Hi again hitest,

Good news is that I am now back on firefox having ftp'd gcc-g++-4.5.1-x86_64-2.txz from Slackware, but the issues with slackpkg still remain. e.g a search for gcc-g++ now reveals it as being installed, but as a test I tried
Code:
slackpkg reinstall gcc-g++
and still get this error
Quote:
slackpkg reinstall gcc-g++

Looking for gcc-g++ in package list. Please wait... DONE

No packages match the pattern for reinstall. Try:

/usr/sbin/slackpkg install|upgrade
So now need to get this last problem sorted out before I can really mark this as resolved.

To answer your question though, I had no md5 checksum errors


My bad. Just realised that I needed to check the slackpkg blacklist, and there they were, (all of the gcc stuff) so a quick edit and upgrade later all is looking good.

Thanks to all for the help.
