Maybe, depending on the program.

That is, programs who have dependencies from 14.0 that are not present in 14.1 (or have changed dramatically) will need a recompile.

It is probably safer to recompile all SlackBuilds on your system after upgrading.

I do that as well. Two of three Slackware 14.1 installs completed yesterday without a hitch. Will do the last install tonight. The good people at SBo will release new slackbuild scripts in the near future.

use the basic rule: If it's NOT broken, don't fix it

Won't a new libc version also cause problems?

for those that rebuild SlackBuilds.org packages, do you have some sort of script that runs through all the packages to update from SlackBuilds.org and then builds them? some of the programs I have have a nightmare of dependencies that require too much manual work to rebuild.
