I think this is a bug in GCC, but being that 7.0 has an outdated version, I doubt it's worth fixing it.

Years later... VL-7.0 is the main system now, about since shortly after I had the trouble with openSUSE.

In the meantime I tried NixOS, Gobo, Foresight, Puppy and AntiX and recently I was thinking about switching to Slackware. But now I will check out VL-7.1 RC2.3 first. Wink

Besides VL-7.0 I like Puppy best... Flash stopped working on VL-7.0 some time ago and I was too lazy to find out what's wrong with it, so when I really need flash, I start up Puppy Smiley

Edit: The Puppy I use is also based on Slackware.

> There Is No Such Thing As A "Dumb Question"!

Ok then, what is the latest test iso for download I could try out? And where should I download it from?

I found VL-7.1-STD-RC2.3.iso under for 32 bit.

Is that the latest? If yes: I get a download speed of less than 16 kilobytes/s, this results in an estimated download time of more than TWELVE hours.
I left it running for several minutes and it is getting worse - estimating 14 hours now, after downloading 10 megabytes.

That's not an option. I will cancel the download after sending this post.

What could I do to get reasonable download times?

Or if you could do something about that, please do it.

I left it running and suddenly the download sped up to about 400kb/s and now it's finished. Smiley
I don't know if something was done on your side - if yes: Thank you very much!

7.1 is good, but 7.0 32-bit:
/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome: /usr/lib/ version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome)

I have built the latest stable version of google-chrome (38.0.2125.104) for all vector versions.  Please add the untested repository to your slapt-getrc and install it via slapt-get or gslapt.

If you have 7.0, you also need to add the 'testing' repository.

32-bit repo URL is:
64-bit repo URL is:

Post the results of your testing here so the package can be moved to the stable repositories if all is well with it.

Google itself (mainly: Gmail..) has been whinging for some time, it's not fully supporting this version ( Version 24.0.1312.57 ) anymore.
Which is a shame since I require a reasonable up-to-date Flash-plugin.(Which means I got Chrome shoved down my throat...)
