Slackware -Current (32bit!) Kernel 4.4.20 and all is well


One question I have about the Sept 8th updates relates to this verse in the Changelog.txt:
Quote:
d/python-2.7.12-i586-1.txz: Upgraded.
Compiled using --enable-unicode=ucs4.
The upstream default for Python Unicode is ucs2, but ucs4 is more widely
used and recommended now. Any Python scripts or binaries that use UCS-2
will need to be recompiled. These can be identified with the following
grep command: grep -r -l PyUnicodeUCS2 /usr 2> /dev/null
I was planning on having to recompile several packages once the upgraded python was in place, but it tuns out those packages seem to work just fine.
Am I still in need of recompiling them to be safe?
I'm a bit confused, as the Changelog lists those packages as "Rebuilt".
So was the above note just a "note to self" for PV?

I had to recompile libtorrent-rasterbar, and qbittorrent. wxGTK (2) needs to be recompiled as well I think.

I had to reinstall kodi from sbo and libreoffice from slackbuilds.

Everything else seems fine so far.
