Slackware-current upgrades today.
 
Armageddon is shaping up rather well today. :)

Code:

Fri Dec 21 07:01:05 UTC 2012
Every time the world is about to end, all I want to do is compile kernels.
So, here you go...  the final kernel updates. *
Still testing the new glibc, which removes the gets() function and may or may
not be a safe upgrade yet.  It might be safer after the next gcc comes out.

Yes, as I wrote in some other thread:

May all the future doomsdays be as good as this one:)

Thank you Pat for the updates.

A nice Christmas gift :)

Okay, so I have a customized boot CD so I just plucked the new kernel and the new /lib/modules/
Everything is good booting up from USB but now my usb stick is /dev/sda and the sata hard-drive is /dev/sdb which is the opposite of before. Has anyone else seen this or is this just a feature of the newer kernels? Needless to say, my installation scripts are pining for the fjords.

TIA and Merry Christmas.

The gcc bugfix release is appealing but I'm not sure I want to jump on the 'current' treadmill just yet. I think I'll just cherry pick these tool-chain updates for now.

That's my plan for now too.

willysr 12-22-2012 08:49 AM

Yeah, i'm only upgrading the gcc, binutils, and oprofile without touching the kernels-* package for now :)

Bad MD5 sums
 
I tried to install the upgrades today and it failed with bad MD5 sums. What's the fix?

Try running slackpkg upgrade-all again and re-install any files that had bad md5 sums.

Tried it again. Slackpkg reports all md5's are bad. Tried another mirror - same results. I downloaded the files manually and installed them manually with no problems. Not quite sure how to upgrade the new initrc.img file. It is not a .tgz format. I was able to make a init.gz for the new kernel which works fine. Thanks & Merry Christmas!

Just upgraded and the old nvidia version i was using wouldnt compile because it was looking for a "version.h" in the kernel source that wasnt there.

If you have an nvidia card, save yourself a headache and download the latest nvidia driver for your card before that first reboot.

How did he know I wanted a new kernel for Christmas?! :scratch:
:)
Many Thanks!

A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You and Yours!
:hattip:

Cool. Happy to hear you got it sorted out! You're very welcome! Merry Christmas to you as well. :)

The new kernel is working very well.
If it works well for a near novice like myself, it should work for just about everyone (just about :) ).
Appears to have better support for HDMI audio (off of my Nvidia graphics card). KDE actually automatically found it and used it, but there is still no volume control. I think it woke up everyone in the house.

I upgraded all but the kernel. I am already on a custom 3.7.1.
