Thanks to all who posted. My idle curiosity has been generously
fed full of info :-) I'm glad to see that all is well--developers
developing, and Slackware well on track. I'll look forward to when
that trigger is pulled.

I looked in 64bit current and there wasn't anything new there and thought what the hell is he on about. Then I checked 32bit! Yikes!

I normally pay close attention to the updates. With that lot I'm just going to have to go on blind trust and use a 'for blah in *.t?z' loop against the entire lot. Far too many changes to actually follow what's going on with.

Thankfully, it'll take a day or so for my local mirror to sync so I'll have time to get over the shock before I have to apply them. I don't even want to have to think about all those *.new's I'm gonna have to deal with!

I think the forum's are gonna be quiet tomorrow while everyone deals with these.

Thanks guys.

Yes, mRgOBLIN, thanks for the clue. I just looked. The changelog does
indeed appear to have had at least a month's worth of changes by the
Slackware team added at Mar 1 22:43:53 UTC 2010. Current users may find
it interesting :-)

After reviewing the changelog entry for today (March 1, 2010), I'm thinking maybe it would have been easier for Pat to tell us what hasn't changed. In 6 years of using Slack, I don't think I've ever seen a single changelog entry of this magnitude.

l/libjpeg-v8-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
This changes the soname to .so.8.
This is the first time in almost 8 years libjpeg got a new upstream release, let alone one with a soname bump.
Thats why sooner of later if Pat wanted to upgrade to it there would be a huge amount of rebuilds required.
It just happened to be now.

So, does anybody know when we'll start seeing some activity in the changelogs?

I get the error: libgmp.so.10 is not found. So I terminated the slackpkg update-all process.

Now I can't run slackpkg, installpkg, upgradepkg because of the same error. I'm so excited to try the -current so I just symlinked the file to libgmp.so which is also a synlink to the real lib. Now I restarted the upgrade process. Hopefully it will work. (breaking the virtual machine first, before breaking my laptop )

You may find that thread handy (or informative at least) if you haven't yet read it.

Myself, I'm just curious how long it usually takes for the latest stuff (like as of the latest changelog) on the slackware ftp server to propagate to the various mirrors.... Any general idea anyone? I've tried 3 or 4 mirrors and so far nothing new.

My symlink work, but I prefer that thread you posted, it is more elegant.

Thanks,
