I haven't no, but I haven't checked Slackpkg update yet for today (I assume you have checked something like this, or your last post would be different ).. Maybe something could be gleaned from lurking in the IRC channel? I'm not big on IRC so I for one will wait patiently.

Yeah, lurking on IRC may be the way to go. I'm mostly just curious as security updates tend to come out pretty quickly most of the time.

Last I checked, the average Slackbuild takes into account i486, i686, or x86_64 depending on your $ARCH setting; if no preconfigured $ARCH on your system (i.e. you haven't defined it) it should default to i486 which is for 32bit generic builds.

And, the Slackbuild will do everything *except* install the finished package.

It will terminate with something like:

Code:
Package /some/output/path/blah-version-arch-123.tgz created.
after which you just do:
Code:
installpkg /some/output/path/blah-version-arch-123.tgz

Has anyone had any word?
The changelog hasn't moved since the 16th. I must admit I'm a little surprised that a bug fix as important as this one hasn't be fixed yet, but I guess this is just one of the drawbacks of running a distro that relies on just one man. Maybe Pat's taking a few weeks off or something.

Check the ChangeLog.txt in a few minutes, Firefox update will be in there as well as some other niceties.

The number of hits on the changelog's server is probably preventing update at this point!

The sync out to the mirrors is not yet complete, it will take a while to become visible I guess.

Hello,

Am I the only one, but when I check Changelog for -current 32-bits on slackware site, there is no mention of any change since 16th March?

Says 31st March here. Try force refreshing the page. (shift-refresh or ctrl-F5 in firefox)

Strange, I emptied my cache in Firefox and also force refresh and still no update from "official" slackware changelog.

However I can see the updated changelogs on some random mirrors:

ftp://ftp.slackware.org.uk/slackware.../ChangeLog.txt
ftp://ftp.slackware.pl/pub/slackware.../ChangeLog.txt
ftp://sunsite.icm.edu.pl/pub/Linux/s.../ChangeLog.txt

I also came upon mirrors in the process of being updated (at time of writing this post) or for which mirroring was aborted (extra/ is updated on 31st March but other files/directories are not).

ftp://mirrors.blueyonder.co.uk/sites/ftp.slackware.com

ftp://mirror.switch.ch/mirror/slackw...kware-current/

Maybe it's just that mirroring takes some time. But I'm still wondering why I can't see the "official" updated Changelog file.
