Is Porteus 5.0 RC3 going to be updated one day? Or should I start learning APorteus instead?

(I'm beginning to be disturbed by growing incompatibilities. Nowadays quickly getting a simple package like xdpyinfo through getpkg which used to give an oldish but immediately working module, produces a package that is ahead, complaining about GLIBC mismatch etc.)

in the meantime, for rc3 getpkg, i suggest editing /usr/local/bin/getpkg line 31 to:

Code: Select all

SLACKVER=15.0
(instead of current) .. this should lessen 'older library' issues( though perhaps not eliminate entirely)

I hope it's a stable version, too many rc releases.

An interesting date is approaching, the 8th of July: exactly one year since the celebrated Porteus-v5.0rc3 was released

I'm surprised Porteus 5.0 stable will use glibc-2.35 :thumbsup:
