14.1 is still supported. That has similar versions to the latest CentOS, even though it was released several years before. And 14.2 has been stable for plenty of people (even if it isn't for you), and it may have similar versions to CentOS's next release.

You push for a newer PHP (that has 22 pages of incompatibilities if you were to print them out), but then you complain when other software is updated. You really should work on your consistency.

-current is used to push Slackware to the newer versions. People can test and report. Pat can then make the decision on where to proceed from there before the final stable release is pushed.

This is like complaining because a github project you use keeps adding commits for possibly unstable features in their development branch... but if you really wanted stability, you'd use their, you know, stable branch, or one of the many releases they've already provided.

It will take time before other projects can catch up with the GCC latest release.
Yea, this is why I run current. So its my system that breaks now and not someone else's running stable in a year or two. That said this gcc release is a bit rough.

I used -current on all of my machines (desktop, laptop, workstations), except for servers where i still use -stable.
Looking at my own experience, the number of time -current broke my system is probably just once (during X migration few year ago), but newer GCC broke scripts in SBo is very common thing and we are used to it

I have done a little more digging and I think I have two issues. First issue is new GCC and stricter standards. To fix the stricter standards I included -std=gnu++98 as this matched the default setting in the previous version of gcc in Slackware 14.2.

My second issue is around moc and this cannot be fixed with the GCC option. On a whim I rolled back gcc, glibc, glibc-solibs, and a previous build of qt-4.8.7. Once I rolled back this far the build worked fine. I upgraded to gcc 7.1 and latest build of QT 4.8.7 and everything would build fine. When I went from glibc 2.23 to glibc 2.25 moc broke again. I suspect the glibc upgrade is also breaking my build of qt 4.8.7 I was trying. I will have to test this later.
