Upgrade 13.1 multi-lib to 13.37


I'm using Slackware 13.1_64 with multi-lib. Now that 13.37 is out I would like to upgrade my system but thought I would ask if there are any problems or considerations for upgrading multi-lib systems ?

apart the usual reccomendations for a pure system (reading an applying UPGRADE.TXT and CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT), the only other thing you should need is to update you multilib packages at the end of the upgrade process with the ones in the 13.37 folder (*-compat32 packages included: be aware that considerations in point 4 of the UPGRADE.TXT about removed packages apply also there): nothing else.
