bug report for x86_64 for latest batch of updates.

I had to add --disable-gstreamer into the slackbuild for pidgin to get it to build on -current. libgstreamer updated to, but pidgin was looking for

there's a gstreamer0 package. Please check whether you have that installed or not.

If you have slackpkg configured correctly
slackpkg install-new
should show you the new packages. Alternative: check the changelog for packages tagged with "Added".

having duplicate versions of packages might cause problems in the future (around 2034)

Is it just me or is libxul in Firefox and Thunderbird linked to the old version of the icu4c library?

Edit: Never mind. I forgot to replace my own GTK+2 library with the one in -current.

xfwm4-themes was removed with no replacement. From having a lot of window decorations in XFCE we now have just 5 and all of them look very similar.

I was compiling gcc-4.9.2 on Slack64-14.1 and I noticed that libiberty.a does not get installed unless "--enable-install-libiberty" is added to the configure invocation in the SlackBuild. I assume this applies to -current as well. Adding this option means the libiberty header files also get installed in the resulting package which stops oprofile from warning that although libiberty is present it cannot be compiled when oprofile is updated (which is required after upgrading binutils).
