Slackware64 13.1 Packages Are Ready

Well, most of then anyhow. Please be aware that I have moved to 64-bit Slackware for my personal desktop. This means the binaries I provide for my packages will now be for the x86_64 arch, rather than i686 as in the past. If you need to build for a different architecture, or want to compile with your own options, head on over to the SVN repo to download the build scripts. The binary packages themselves can be downloaded from the packages website.

With the move to Slackware 13.1 I will not be releasing any more binaries for previous versions. I simply do not have the time to compile and create packages for multiple versions of Slackware.

Here are some of the more important package changes from 13.0:

Added Packages:
mp4v2 – Replaced the older libmp4v2 package
lilypond – Needed for Rosegarden
t1utils – Needed for Lilypond
(Please note that Rosegarden is one of the packages that has not yet been build. Soon, I hope.)

Removed packages:
fftw – Slackware has an official package
glib2 – Slackware’s package is now sufficiently up to date
gmime – Slackware’s package is now sufficiently up to date
gst-plugins-base – Slackware’s package is now sufficiently up to date
gstreamer – Slackware’s package is now sufficiently up to date
gtk+2 – Slackware’s package is now sufficiently up to date
libmp4v2 – Replaced by the newer mp4v2 package
libnotify – Slackware has an official package
libsamplerate – Slackware has an official package
mozilla-thunderbird – Slackware now ships with 3.0.x
optipng – No longer used by Battle for Wesnoth
yasm – Slackware has an official package
