WARNING glibc-* updated again, follow instructions below

Post by DidierSpaier » 6. Jul 2017, 06:26

The WARNING in the previous post still applies. Updated instructions below.

WARNING

For some reason spkg (used as backend for spi and slapt-get in Slint) fails to run the post-installation script, that makes the system unusable.

To avoid that you need to do what follows before running gslapt or spi or slapt-get:
  1. Download the new most important glibc-* packages for your architecture (32-bit or 64-bit)
  2. Install them with upgradepkg
Instructions for Slint64-14.2 (64-bit), if "uname -m" reports "x86_64":
Type in a terminal

Code: Select all

wget http://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware64-14.2/patches/packages/glibc-2.23-x86_64-3_slack14.2.txz
wget http://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware64-14.2/patches/packages/glibc-solibs-2.23-x86_64-3_slack14.2.txz
su # to become root
upgradepkg glibc-2.23-x86_64-3_slack14.2.txz
upgradepkg glibc-solibs-2.23-x86_64-3_slack14.2.txz
Instructions for Slint-14.2 (32-bit), if "uname -m" reports "i686':
Type in a terminal

Code: Select all

wget http://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-14.2/patches/packages/glibc-2.23-i586-3_slack14.2.txz
wget http://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-14.2/patches/packages/glibc-solibs-2.23-i586-3_slack14.2.txz
su # to become root
upgradepkg glibc-2.23-i586-3_slack14.2.txz
upgradepkg glibc-solibs-2.23-i586-3_slack14.2.txz
PS This is of course a workaround, Until we find a real solution I will shortly provide updated slapt-get packages without the patch that makes it relying on spkg. This will noticeably slow down some updates (those that remove packages shipping many files), but better safe than sorry.

I just uploaded spkg 1.1 in the repos. It should fix this ugly problem.

Thanks George, much appreciated!

The curious among us can see the main commit.

The new spkg packages should hit the mirrors in the coming hours. Slint users will get them as a regular update.

I plan to provide as a regular update in a few days slapt-get packages built with spkg as back-end in all cases as previously.
