Ruby got updated from 1 to 2 too. That's one I was waiting for.

I see aaa_elflibs version has been updated to 14.2. I guess it's official now; 14.2 is the next release version.

14.2 was already in Xorg with -Current, but still, much work to be done.

Ok, I have what is probably a stupid question: most of what I saw was rebuilding rather than upgrades--what is the reason so much other stuff had to be rebuilt? Is it because everything (in X in particular) is linked to everything else, or what? I'm sorry, I'm truly confused here...

OTOH, I missed the version upgrade on aaa_elflibs while I was glancing through: now I'm excited!

http://slackware.osuosl.org/slackwar.../ChangeLog.txt says

x/mesa-10.6.4-x86_64-1.txz

With latest updates I got mesa-10.6.4-i586.

In vbox slackware64-current vm I get "error loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1".

Thanks

That is in fact what is there - mirror upload error maybe?

It would appear to be. A little gremlin, missing the days of when 32 bit processors ruled the Earth, snuck it into the 64 bit tree. :P

In my system, the affected packages by mesa(upgraded)/libepoxy(added) were quite a lot [1], so first i installed some other new packages (I don't have full -current installation), then compiled/installed mesa (for x86_64) and now i have less problems [2] ;-)

A snippet taken from Alienbob's website - you may wish to go over and read his comments:

A note about mesa: it refuses to compile on 32-bit Slackware unless the ARCH is set to i586 gone is the i486 compatibility. Well, if you had watched the ChangeLog.txt these past months youd already have noticed that updated packages switched from i486 to i586, but that was voluntary. Mesa is the first real stumbling block.

Enjoy!

It could depend on the hardware being supported by modern Mesa. If you see the changes from the 9.x series before they dropped DRI1 drivers, they may have removed 486 support due to the drivers in usage no longer exist from that era of hardware. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they eventually kill off 586 optimizations in favor of 686 or maybe even 786 for 32-bit hardware to focus on supporting systems that have usage of Mesa.

AFAIK Mesa-9.x (Legacy) can still be used on 32-bit systems, and maybe some 64-bit systems (is this tested?) and still has 486 level optimizations.

Other than the mesa issue, I tried several apps everything seems to be working fine. Thank you Patrick and the crew!
