14.2/x86_64: tuning multilib upgrades


Reading AlienBOB's multilib wiki page I see the suggestion of blacklisting the distribution's glibc and gcc packages while the immediately following examples are to blacklist the multilib and compat32 packages. Can I effectively add to the blacklist
glibc*
gcc*
or should I list each individual package?

Also, while I downloaded all multilib and compat32 packages I did not see compat32-tools-3.7-noarch-1alien.tgz. A web search for that package name finds one for 14.1 but not 14.2. Where might I find a 14.2 version, or is it no longer needed?

TIA,

Rich

No need to list each package, the patterns glibc* and gcc* should do the trick.

compat32-tools is at revision 3.8 for 14.2. You can get it from here.

As far as I recall, glibc-zoneinfo does not have to be blacklisted.

It may be far better to just setup slackpkg+, which is an addon for slackpkg that allows you to specify mutliple repos. The benefit with this is you can specify priorities, so you can set it so Eric's multilib repo is a higher priority than the slackware repo, and it will suggest multilib packages over stock.

Check out the keeping it updated section of that article for more details.

slackpkgplus is installed, configured, and used.

That's true and makes my question moot because I do need to list the glibc packages to be excluded while combining the gcc packages.

Thanks for the reminder.

In this case, you don't want packages blacklisted in slackpkg, because I don't believe it will find those packages, even through slackpkg+.
