Removing multilibPosted: 2017-04-07 Filed under: system | Tags: compat, compat32, gcc, glibc, multilib, slackpkg Leave a comment
I came to the point where I no longer needed a
multilib system, at least on one of my computers. I rarely use Adobe Acrobat Reader, I have Skype running on my phone and, there’s of course ZeroUno’s package if I happen to need Skype on my computer. I decided to simply use
slackpkg, to clean up the system and revert to the
glibc-* packages from the original installation.
First, I removed everything with a
slackpkg remove compat32
After that, I made sure these are no longer blacklisted in
/etc/slackpkg/blacklist, by commenting them out:
#gcc #gcc-g++ #gcc-gfortran #gcc-gnat #gcc-go #gcc-java #gcc-objc #glibc #glibc-i18n #glibc-profile #glibc-solibs
Then, I upgraded to the stock
glibc-*. My system is up-to-date, so this will simply do:
It’s as easy as that. After an installing/removing like this, I usually like to reboot the system.
