Slackware update

I usually get Slackware updates weekly. There's always something to update for security or performance. Lately, there's been nothing. I even went so far as to check my settings in case I had accidentally turned off updates. But no, it was good.

Today, the drought broke. There is a huge update from Slackware. Major libraries, kernels, so much has changed. I installed it all on my work desktop, then rebooted. It came back. So far, so good. Music is back. Chromium won't run - it's looking for libgcrypt.so.11 and that appears to have been upgraded. I'll have to wait till SBO have newer versions available before I can get that running again.

No doubt I'll discover more little things as time goes by, but so far it's good.
