Upgrade killed X Missing libffi.so.6
I wanted to see what cuurent looked like and used slapt-get
After it all installed i restarted and now x is dead
It says cant find shared libffi.so.6
Sorry cant give the whole error , typing from my phone :(
You are missing libffi package which was recently added to -current.
Instead of blindly upgrading a better idea is to carefully read the ChangeLog and use slackpkg as follows:
in -current this library is provided by the libffi package. But the shared version previously included in gcc-java has been removed, see changelog dated in Mon Jun 25 05:17:48 UTC 2012.
My guess is that somehow slapt-get misbehaved about this update.
Anyhow slapt-get's usage is *not* recommended to upgrade Slackware, better use slackpkg instead. Let me quote "man slackpkg"
EDIT audriusk was faster than me...
