Frugalware Let's make things frugal!
En Fr Es It

Frugalware is a general purpose linux distribution, designed for intermediate users (who are not afraid of text mode).

We try to make Frugalware as simple as possible while not forgetting to keep it comfortable for the user. We try to ship fresh and stable software, as close to the original source as possible, because in our opinion most software is the best as is, and doesn't need patching.

toolchain bumped to gcc6

2016-09-30 - Posted by DeX77

In the last weeks after the release of Frugalware 2.1 crazy went forward and bumped gcc to version 6.2.1. In a concentrated effort all developers worked in the gcc6 WIP repo and rebuild many packages with the new toolchain. Yesterday we merged that WIP into current. If you do your usual "pacman-g2 -Syu" you will be prompted to upgrade pacman-g2 first. Then you will get an error about llvm. So before doing the pacman-g2 upgrade you have to remove llvm and readd it after:

  1. pacman-g2 -Rd llvm
  2. pacman-g2 -Su
  3. pacman-g2 -S llvm
  4. pacman-g2 -Su
