Yes, running it here on slackware64-current. I am still building the 32bit packages and then they will get uploaded.

I'm facing a problem with libreoffice from alien repo.
I've just completed a successful upgrade to latest current, and running soffice I get a problem:
error while loading shared libraries: libicui18n.so.56: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The installed version is libreoffice-6.2.8-x86_64-1alien and thus the error is expected, as the upgrade lift the icu4c version to icu4c-65.1-x86_64-1.
Thus I've tried the ( masked ) libreoffice-6.4.0-x86_64-1alien but this time the error is:

error while loading shared libraries: libboost_locale.so.1.72.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This time I'm confused as the libbost from current is boost-1.71.0-x86_64-2
The only 1.72 I can find is from alien repo boost-compat-1.72-x86_64-2alien but in my understanding is the compat.

Installing this last fix the problem, but my question is: why there is the need for a lib version greater then the one in -current.
Is a problem with my configuration or I'm simply missing something ?

T.I.A.

You are not missing anything, it's just that these packages need recompilation everytime there is a boost/icu update. By providing these compat packages, Eric ensures that the applications keep running even after an upgrade of the system boost/icu. When the applications are eventually recompiled at a later time there is no need for the compat packages anymore since they are built against the current system libraries.

That's my thought too, but the libreoffice 6.4.0 seems to be compiled with a version greater than the current ( which is in compat too ).
Luckily it's inside "compat"

Apparently you are not fully uptodate with your -current installation:

Happy 2020 to the Slackware community! :-)
...
l/boost-1.72.0-x86_64-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Recompiled against python3-3.8.1.
  Patched to fix missing boost/serialization/split_member.hpp include.
  This fixes the lightspark build at SBo. Thanks to orbea.

Thanks Eric !
That was my fear.

I suspect it's a problem with my mirror list:
Code:
topolinux root /var/cache# slackpkg search boost

Looking for boost in package list. Please wait... DONE

The list below shows all packages with name matching "boost".

[ Status           ] [ Repository               ] [ Package                                  ]
   installed               alienall                     boost-compat-1.72-x86_64-2alien           
   installed               slackware64                  boost-1.71.0-x86_64-2                     

You can search specific files using "slackpkg file-search file".
I'm using this one:
http://ba.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/Sla...are64-current/

but it's Changelog is:
Code:
ChangeLog.txt                                      26-Nov-2019 20:04
It seems that "ie" mirror ( http://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/ftp.sla...are64-current/ )
is more up-to-date:
Code:
ChangeLog.txt                             2020-02-03 20:47
I'll change to this one.

Sorry for the trouble

The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 6.4.1

Berlin, February 27, 2020 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 6.4.1, the 1st minor release of the LibreOffice 6.4 family, targeted at technology enthusiasts and power users. LibreOffice 6.4.1 includes over 120 bug fixes and improvements to document compatibility.

LibreOffice 6.4.1 represents the bleeding edge in term of features for open source office suites, and as such is not optimized for enterprise class deployments, where features are less important than robustness. Users wanting a more mature version can download LibreOffice 6.3.5, which includes some months of back-ported fixes......

I installed LibreOffice on Slackware 14.2 32-bit & 64-bit on two different computers. I used slackbuilds.org this required downloading openjdk (or JDK if you want to use Oracle). Also, there are a bunch of dependencies but they are well documented on slackbuilds.org it can take a bit of time to compile from source code, but it works well.

The other option is ~alienbob which can make the job faster and easier. But, both are excellent ways to install it.
