Hey Benny!

MK>> I've never heard anyone using slackware ever complain about the

BP> its like windows 10 never miss explore 11

Huh? I always though the Debian crowd to be more of the MS-ish types.

BP> revdep-rebuild fix if some precompiled installs fails with
BP> ldd /bin/bash

I have never seen that happen but now that you bring it up;

# ldd /bin/bash | tr -d '\t' (0x00007ffc85bf0000) => /lib/ (0x00007f9c5f829000) => /lib/ (0x00007f9c5f81d000) => /lib/ (0x00007f9c5f7c2000) => /lib/ (0x00007f9c5f7bd000) => /lib/ (0x00007f9c5f637000)
/lib64/ => /lib/ (0x00007f9c5f87f000)

On my prior build (glibc-2.32) there was no /lib64 directory but barring that
it seems to be working. I think file might be more entertaining;

# file /bin/bash
/bin/bash: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically
linked, interpreter /lib64/, for GNU/Linux 3.2.0, stripped

Looks good.

BP> or in slackware now ldd /bin/awk

# ldd /usr/bin/awk | tr -d '\t' (0x00007ffd4bd1d000) => /lib/ (0x00007fc922688000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fc92261c000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fc9225b5000) => /lib/ (0x00007fc9225b0000) => /lib/ (0x00007fc92248f000) => /lib/ (0x00007fc922309000) => /lib/ (0x00007fc9222ac000)
/lib64/ => /lib/ (0x00007fc9226de000)

On this system /usr/bin/awk is a symlink to /usr/bin/gawk. Other than
slackware putting it in /bin I think it is the same. Just a sec ...

From the slackware64-current gawk-5.1.0-x86_64-3.txz package I get the below;

$ ldd bin/gawk-5.1.0 | tr -d '\t' (0x00007ffee98ce000) => not found => /lib/ (0x00007fc98623a000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fc9861ce000) => /usr/lib/ (0x00007fc986167000) => /lib/ (0x00007fc986162000) => /lib/ (0x00007fc986041000) => /lib/ (0x00007fc985eb9000) => /lib/ (0x00007fc985e5e000)
/lib64/ => /lib/ (0x00007fc986290000)

I seem to be missing libsigsegv which should be no problem to add into the mix. looks to be the
latest and greatest. Other than that I don't see any issues.

BP> you never used gentoo then

Nope. I briefly used an aarch64 version of gentoo to build an
aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu toolchain about a year or two ago. That saved me
from having to do a crosscompile just to create a half-decent pure 64-bit
native development platform for raspberrypi. I might pick that up again in the
near future.

BP> why not keep it debian then ?

BAH!!! Never. Slackware is a zillion times better.

BP> slackware only uses taballs, not db files

As it should be.

Life is good,
