Slackware64 14, problems with compiling packages from slackbuilds.org
Hi to all,
I've just reinstall my system to slackware64 14, before I used just x32 slackware. First of all I've installed compat32 packages from alien's site, and then start to build programs from slackbuilds.org. Some of them installed properly, but large amount of other didn't. The most often mistakes, is that some features are deprecated. Till there is no 14.0 branch on slackbuilds.org I'm using 13.37 branch. So I would like to know is this just my problem, or I should to wait for 14.0 slackbuilds?
I have problems with next packages: widelands, wethnoth, dirac, libffado, lirc, wiicd, graphhviz, physfs, libofa and others.
All this packages, were ok on slackware 13.37 x32.
My system is also running Slackware64-14.0 (Multi-Lib enabled). All the 13.37 packages that I have tried work perfectly. As Didier has said, best to wait for slackbuilds.org to catch up, or you can look and see the point at which the compilation failed and modify the slackbuild to compensate.
GCC 4.7.x changed in a few significant ways, mostly in becoming more strict with compiling. Also glibc changed the way includes are handled. The latest ffmpeg has changed too, anything dependent upon that needs rebuilding. All of those types of build issues need to be resolved upstream or patched in the build scripts. Etc., etc.
So patience will be required with the slackbuilds scripts for 14.0.
