slapt-get issue on 7.1 rc1
« on: April 16, 2014, 11:08:08 pm »
slapt-get --update does not work. it goes through the motions just like youd expect but it does not find new packages. it is not updating and finding new packages and there are no errors.

gslapt DOES work, works just fine...finds new packages just like youd expect.

well if gslapt is merely a front end gui for slapt-get why does the front end gui work but not the command line program itself that the gui is using?

it seems to be local to my machine, others have not been able to reproduce this issue

solved. i'll leave this embarassement here for the knowledge of others.

i had a bad source in my slapt-getrc which was

Code: [Select]
#SOURCE=http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.1/unstable/
one bad source apparently kills the entire process thus updating nothing

thank you to rbistolfi

im sorry, you helped me alot on this hata......
rbistolfi found that i had 1 bad source in my slapt-getrc
and that stops all sources from being updated.....
id like a new sources list that is fresh but many things
are going on at the moment
