Okay, did some research and set TERM=xterm and everything is back to normal. No more weird chars in the terminal.

Indeed. At least on that mirror and the mirrors at TDS the y series is all x86_64 packages. ftp://slackware.mirrors.tds.net/pub/...t/slackware/y/

EDIT: oddly enough, the packages in 64-current and -current don't appear to be the same packages, at least based on size.

If these packages were built on a multilib system they would be called x86_64. Maybe that's it?

Just upgraded from beta to 13.1 RC1 32 bit and all seems well (apart from a very minor glitch on task manager bar in KDE which I fixed by changing theme).

I rsync'd from slackware.mirrors.tds.net::slackware and was surprised to find this 64 bit package in what should be a 32 bit tree:
Code:
y/bsd-games-2.13-x86_64-10.txz
It appears to be the only one with _64 in the name.

ALSO, "something" create the /lib64 and /usr/lib64 directories. Another package is crappified but still I don't find who is the villain.

Later: BINGO! The crappified package that install the lib64 directories is aaa_base-13.1-i486-1.txz

Doing "ls /var/log/packages/*x86_64*" in my 32bit slackware-current box gave:

Code:
/var/log/packages/bsd-games-2.13-x86_64-10
!!!

I downloaded most of the 32-bit tree and most of the 64-bit tree using Alien Bob's mirror-slackware-current.sh and I have no rogue packages at all.

I do not download /e /f /kdei /t /y so I can't really comment on those.

I use the "official" rsync.osuosl.org::slackware/, and in the last check (one minute ago) the X86_64 crap is still present.

It may still be in aaa_base 32-bit, but is this a bug or deliberate?
