[solved] Samba download and upgrade problems
« on: June 18, 2013, 07:10:50 am »

Hi I have been using vectorlinux 7 (standard edition) for about 6 months now and so far i haven't ran into any to difficult problems until now. Today i finally got around to updating/upgrading all the things i need to update but i ran into a problem when i tried to the latest version of samba (3.6 i believe). I have tried both terminal and gslapt manager and both keep running into the same error, here is my output:

Code: [Select]
root:# slapt-get --upgrade

The following packages will be upgraded:
  samba
1 upgraded, 0 reinstalled, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove, 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 16.0MB of archives.
After unpacking 10.2MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [y/N] y

I was wondering if any one had any idea on how to troubleshoot this? I have searched and so far have found no solutions.

I cannot find samba-3.6.7 in the VL-7.0 repos...I can only find version 3.5.10 and 4.0.3 (in the testing repo)
did you update your repo list via gslapt/slapt-get?
show us your /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc

I think the problem is temporally solved.....I cannot find version 3.6 either. I swore i saw it in gslapt manager, but now it is not there so i am guessing it has been removed entirely. Than you for responding though, i really appreciate the input. I am going to mark this as solved because the problem seems to have fixed itself.

Did you update your gslapt/slapt-get before install/upgrade/download the packages?
