Hello!

This change batch contains two important packages that have been renamed.
This is how to transition to these new packages:
As the 'root' user:

# cd slackware/a
# upgradepkg glibc-solibs%aaa_glibc-solibs-2.32-arm-3.txz
# upgradepkg aaa_elflibs%aaa_libraries-15.0-arm-1.txz

Note: If the versions of those two packages no longer exist when you're
reading this, you'll need to update the package file names accordingly.

For the eagle-eyed amongst you, you may notice that the KDE packages are
infact an upgrade, but are marked as being rebuilt. This is due to a build
system bug which I'm fixing soonish (along with addressing the same issue with
the X11 build), which will also place the AArch64 and ARM build numbers into
lockstep (as they are for the rest of the OS).
  • a/glibc-solibs-2.32-arm-2.txz
    Renamed to aaa_glibc-solibs.
  • a/aaa_elflibs-15.0-arm-25.txz
    Renamed to aaa_libraries.
  • a/aaa_glibc-solibs-2.32-arm-3.txz
    This package has been renamed from glibc-solibs, which helps avoid trouble
    if someone upgrades using “upgradepkg –install-new */*.txz” by upgrading
    this package before aaa_libraries. Otherwise, if aaa_libraries is upgraded
    first any libraries in it that are linked against a newer version of glibc
    than the one installed on the system would refuse to load.
  • a/aaa_libraries-15.0-arm-1.txz
    This package has been renamed from aaa_elflibs to insure that it will come
    after aaa_glibc-solibs when upgraded in alphabetical order.
    Upgraded: libcap.so.2.48, libelf-0.183.so, libglib-2.0.so.0.6600.6,
    libgmodule-2.0.so.0.6600.6, libgobject-2.0.so.0.6600.6,
    libgthread-2.0.so.0.6600.6.
    Added: libtirpc.so.3.0.0.
  • a/btrfs-progs-5.10.1-arm-1.txz
  • a/exfatprogs-1.1.0-arm-1.txz
  • a/kernel-firmware-20210208_b79d239-noarch-1.txz
  • a/kernel-modules-armv7-5.10.14_armv7-arm-1.txz
  • a/kernel_armv7-5.10.14-arm-1.txz
  • a/ncompress-5.0-arm-1.txz
  • a/procps-ng-3.3.17-arm-1.txz
  • a/udisks2-2.9.2-arm-1.txz
  • ap/man-db-2.9.4-arm-1.txz
  • ap/slackpkg-15.0-noarch-1.txz
    Added support for Slackware-AArch64.
    These are some of the important changes (see the ChangeLog for more):
    Note that this slackpkg release contains a backwards-incompatible change to
    the blacklisting syntax (e.g. glibc —> glibc-*). This changes the prior
    behavior of the blacklist function; previously, adding “glibc” to the
    blacklist would cause glibc, glibc-profile, glibc-zoneinfo, et al to be
    ignored by slackpkg. The new behavior is that *only* the glibc package is
    ignored. If you want to blacklist all packages whose names begin with glibc,
    you would need to add “glibc.*” to the blacklist now. Also note that any
    special characters, e.g. “+”, will need to be escaped in the blacklist file.
    To blacklist entire package sets, a trailing slash is now required: e.g. kde/
    Another backwards-incompatibility warning: check-updates will now return 1 if
    there are updates available - this will make it easier to use this feature
    with cron (thanks to Peter Hyman).
    Allow new-config after slackpkg upgrade itself. Thanks to PiterPUNK.
    Added aaa_glibc-solibs and aaa_libraries to the “do these first” routine.
    Thanks to Robby Workman for the new slackpkg release!
