BerryBoot might do what you need. I haven't used it so not even 7% sure how useful it might be for multiboot purposes.

Given some of the reports for x86 about the amount of time taken to upgrade, you may find it faster to reinstall from scratch.

There are some more KDE packages coming soon too.

One issue I noticed is that the emacsspeak package hasn't built properly. I have investigated and can't figure it out yet. I managed to get some components of it to build, but I suspect the issue is outside of the emacsspeak package.
If anyone figures it out, let me know!

Any other issues, please reply to this thread.
Excellent!! Thank you for your hard work as always. I need to dive back into ARM world again.

The other is the slackpkg file that contains x86 mirrors rather than arm specific ones. Of course one can simply remove the *.new file and use the old version and that is what I did
Thanks Alex. This particular package was being filtered out by my automated build, causing other packages to fail.
It's there now, along with vboot utils.
