Hello
New installation of VL 6.0 SOHO.  Cannot access Gslapt or slapt-get.  When attempted I get the following error message: "failed to build working directory [/home/ftp/pub/veclinux/packages]".   Any help would be much appreciated.  Mac

Are you trying to use it as non-root user?

if you are indeed root, try to create the directories by hand
mkdir -p /home/ftp/pub/veclinux/packages

That did it, MOE-lnx.  Coming from Debian, I was not familiar with the using the "p" after mkdir.  Thanks.
