I can't get it to work.

 sudo spkg -i gedit-2.31.3.tgz
ERROR: Package name is invalid. (gedit-2.31.3.tgz)
ERROR: Package installation failed!

I get the same error with other packages I have tried
which I can install or upgrade with the install-/upgradepkg command.

How did you install it? It does have a dependency, which means it will probably fail unless installed with slapt-get/gslapt. Any package announced here should be installed using the package manager, otherwise there is no guarantee that it will be correctly installed.

It works here. Took me a while to find a package in .tgz format, but I did find an old Zenwalk package I built several years ago. Results are as below:

Code: [Select]
root:# spkg -i pinfo-0.6.9-i486-50.1.tgz
Installing package pinfo-0.6.9-i486-50.1...
| 'pinfo (a hypertext info file viewer)
|
| Pinfo is a hypertext info file viewer with a user interface similar to
| lynx. It is based on curses/ncurses, and can handle man pages as well
| as info pages. Features regexp searching and user-defined colours/keys

install-info: warning: no info dir entry in `accounting.info.gz'
install-info: warning: no info dir entry in `gtkdialog.info.gz'
install-info: warning: no info dir entry in `termcap.info.gz'
install-info: warning: no info dir entry in `time.info.gz'
install-info: warning: no info dir entry in `which.info.gz'

The warnings are generated by info, and reflect errors in the existing info.dir, but the package installs and works fine.

Yes it is looking for glib2-2.24 which I do not have in my VL6 box and cannot
find with gslapt. I can see it in VL7 iso file.

Hmm. I'm not at all sure how, but you've got the wrong build - either the version for 6.0 SOHO or the build for the 7.0 alpha. This is the dep list for the VL 6.0 version, taken direct from the repo:

Code: [Select]
PACKAGE REQUIRED:  aaa_base >= 12.1.0-noarch-2 | glibc-solibs >= 2.7-i486-10,glib2 >= 2.16.3-i586-
1gsb,judy >= 1.0.5-i586-1vl60,popt >= 1.7-i486-2,zlib >= 1.2.3-i486-2

You should have a .tlz package, not a .txz.
