upgrading slackware64 13.1 multilib to slackware64 -current multilib


I checked google but couldn't find anything. Is there a good guide somewhere for upgrading slackware 13.1 multilib to -current multilib?

How I would do it is to change the mirror in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors and do an update. Then download the 32-bit compatibility layer and libraries (for current) from Alien Bob's site and then in the directory that these are in do an
Code:
upgradepkg --install-new *.t?z
That should be all there is to it. There is a lot more maintenance involved if you are running current as the core programs are likely to change more often.

One quick question regarding multilib. Few days ago i updated and upgraded slack-current and multilib. Now when executing programs in wine I get "glibc detected" errors. Usually it was all right so I start to wonder what went wrong. I'm aware of "MALLOC_CHECK_=1" solution but before this update I didn't experience such problems. Advices are welcome.
Regards,

S.

Code:
slackpkg update
slackpkg install-new
slackpkg upgrade-all
upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new  /mirror/slackware/multilib/current/{*.t?z,slackware64-compat32/*/*.t?z}
