slack64-current multilib slackpkg upgrade


A few weeks ago I made my slack64-current multilib. As per tutorial I blacklisted glibc and gcc in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist:

Code:
# run "lilo" after upgrade). If you think the same, uncomment the lines
# below 
#
kernel-ide
kernel-modules
kernel-source
kernel-headers

#
# aaa_elflibs can't be updated.
#
aaa_elflibs
glibc
gcc
#
# Now we can

When I did slackpkg update and upgrade-all

I got all the gcc* glibc* kernel* packages available for an upgrade. What am I doing wrong?

If I actually upgrade the kernel that way and then run lilo, will it keep the lilo.conf entry of the old kernel? Will it remove the old kernel from the system?

TIA

At present slackpkg understand only full package names in blacklist.

So you should either list all packages whose name begin with glibc of gcc, or set "DEFAULT_ANSWER=n" in /etc/slackpkg/slackpkg.conf
