{Solved} No Conky from Gslapt,..
« on: December 19, 2009, 09:26:17 am »
Not really "earth-shattering",...just that each time I try to fetch Conky with Gslapt,..I get the message:
Quote
failed to download curl: HTTP response code said error
I have already "updated" Gslapt, and have successfully downloaded Wine (and a few other things).  I really don't have a CLUE as to what that message means.  GKrellM is a nice little program,...it's just that I prefer Conky.

I get that sometimes too, i think its due to problems with the mirror or something. A slapt-get -u fixes it for me most of the time

...thanks for the info!  I'll give that a try.

EDIT:  Alrightey now,...upgrading worked that way.  Conky is now downloaded.  ;D

I moved some packages around a couple of days ago, so you may have had badly out of date data for the repos. Though conky wasn't moved - its been in extra for quite a while (and eventually I may be able to get the new version to build, though my attempts so far have been a disamal failure).

I suspect that if you try and use slapt-get or gslapt during the period that the repos are being updated, you will have problems. It takes quite a while to run updates on all areas, then propagate the changes, so if repo maintenance is going on, things may not work the way they should....
