Unable to use gslapt to install this. I get the following error message:
Code: [Select]
Failed to download freetype: MD5 checksum mismatch, overrided with --no-md5

Weird. Can't reproduce that here. I just manually downgraded to 2.4.0, then used Gslapt and have just installed 2.4.1 with it.

I wonder if you've got a corrupt copy of Gslapt or slapt-get?

I finally figured out what the problem was which was of course on my end of the world. My proxy server's content filter didn't like the extra repo (???) or the md5sum for freetype (???). I don't know what caused this to now be an issue but I just allowed free access to vectorlinux.osuosl.org through the filter and that fixed this problem. (I'll post this in the other thread too.)
