To compile kernel modules you only need the 64-bit gcc (9.2) package as those modules have to load into your (64-bit) kernel.
If you were running a 32-bit kernel you automatically wouldn't have multi-lib so again the gcc package is correct for that kernel.
So there's no compatibily issue.

I am trying to install Slackware64-current from the latest usbboot.img (from 2019-08-16), and I run into two issues:

(1) When issuing the command "cryptsetup" on the commandline just after booting usbboot.img, I get the following error message:

Quote:
cryptsetup: error while loading shared libraries: libcryptsetup.so.12: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
(2) If I press the key-combination "Shift + Page-up" once (to scroll up and down in the terminal), the one computer hangs: the text is scrolled up one time, and after that the computer hangs and doesn't react to key-presses.

this actually happened to me too... knowing that it's happening to someone else it's somewhat comforting

P.S. when the console is hanged I can ssh in and reboot the host.

Yeah, it's been like that for a good while.
I ran into it months ago on -current, since I very often use that key combo to "scroll back". (Hence hitting it quickly and having to reboot to get stuff done - a bit annoyed each time I do it, obviously.)

I think I briefly mentioned it to Pat at some point, and did have some intention to try figure out what causes it, but so far it's only been good intentions and not much more on my part, I'm afraid...

Never tried to ssh into a frozen machine though, so I didn't know that worked, but I guess it might be somewhat helpful in figuring out what goes wrong.

And that the "Shift + Page-up" locking never happened with a full install but only with the installer image.
Both with Thinkpad T470 (Intel 7500U) and HP iLO remote console, so not sure if it's a simple (usual) lack of Intel firmware.

Would be nice if mkinitrd reminds the user to install btrfs-progs into the initrd if it finds multiple devices underneath the root filesystem (with btrfs filesystem show $ROOTDEV and alike).

The stable kernel is the one which is like other packages, with enhancements and/or functional changes.

PS: there are more cases in -current where a "longterm" version is used instead of "the latest", like especially firefox (although that has recently been upgraded to the 68.x ESR one, used to be 60.x).
Well, the most recent longterm Linux kernel seems to be version 5.4.x, to be released shortly in the future.

I'd suggest to trigger udev once more after initrd has loaded all the kernel modules. The problems is that, e.g., bcache root device may not come up if bcache was built as a module.

Code:
--- initrd-tree/init.orig       2019-03-04 06:02:39.000000000 +0800
+++ initrd-tree/init    2019-08-22 22:30:51.015449902 +0800
@@ -164,6 +164,12 @@
   fi
 fi
 
+# New block devices may appear after related kernel modules have been loaded
+if [ -x /sbin/udevadm ]; then
+  /sbin/udevadm trigger --subsystem-match=block --action=add
+  /sbin/udevadm settle --timeout=10
+fi

 # Sometimes the devices need extra time to be available.
 # A root filesystem on USB is a good example of that.

As 5.3 even hasn't been released yet, 5.4 will NOT come "real soon", they haven't started yet with that version of the kernel.

We have already waited 38 months for slackware64-15.0, and month 40 will soon come with linux-5.4.

5.4.0 won't be until early November, at which point we'll probably want to wait for the usual 3 or 4 point releases to come along and fix regressions before it can be considered solid: so you're probably looking at somewhere in December, or the new year.

I'll unrequest the second request. After I compiled in ldap support to cyrus, I was able to get it to work and query AD, but I couldnt get it to query more than one source. I wanted it to search AD and failing a find there, search passwd. Also its config is confusing, and while the documentation is extensive, its also confusing. It seems to be verbose with little content.

I switched to using dovecot, which would search ldap and then passwd, as well as a custom passdb just for kicks. Easy to setup, useful docs. -1 for cyrus, +1 for dovecot.

This is the current kernel setup:

Code:
lockywolf@delllaptop:~$ uname -a && zcat /proc/config.gz | grep FS_SECURITY
Linux delllaptop.lockywolf.net 4.19.67 #1 SMP Fri Aug 16 13:17:30 CDT 2019 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2520M CPU @ 2.50GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
CONFIG_EXT2_FS_SECURITY=y
CONFIG_EXT3_FS_SECURITY=y
CONFIG_EXT4_FS_SECURITY=y
CONFIG_REISERFS_FS_SECURITY=y
CONFIG_JFS_SECURITY=y
# CONFIG_F2FS_FS_SECURITY is not set
CONFIG_UBIFS_FS_SECURITY=y
# CONFIG_9P_FS_SECURITY is not set
May I ask that CONFIG_F2FS_FS_SECURITY=y be added to the current kernel?
Contrary to what the documentation says, it's not 'just used by SELinux/AppArmor', it's also used by security capabilities,
which is a handy tool, which we already have enabled for almost all other file-systems available. It is used, for example, by JACK on sb.o, and also by fbterm.

I have recompiled the kernel with CONFIG_F2FS_FS_SECURITY, and it seems to be working fine.

I am asking because I want to try f2fs on the / (root), since large-sized SSDs are quite common now, and F2FS is considered to be more efficient when working with them.

Thanks!
