on my netbook (32-bit VL 7.1) with the testing repository enabled
Now slapt-get --update fails if the testing repository is enabled.  I checked it, and the package list is missing, which is the error I'm seeing.  Without testing it runs but I still have unmet dependencies.

At present the 7.1 testing repository isn't used, and it looks like it will remain that way through the release cycle. This is an intended change; later RC's ship without the http version of the testing repo even mentioned in slapt-getrc. The untested repo is there, but commented out in such a way that it can be uncommented only by direct edit -- not via GSlapt. I assume that's also intentional because the rest of the disabled repos have the "#DISABLED" tag that GSlapt latches onto.

The 7.1 testing repo is empty. Note that this does not apply to 70 which still uses testing.

One issue about the current development model is the the repository is in constant movement. Using untested is likely to produce errors: the package list changes quickly and it is regenerated after each new build. I think the same applies for the testing repository at osuosl. We will have to adapt and improve as we go.

If you have an ip address that is in the proper subnet.

Then there are only two areas to check.

Make sure using iwconfig that the connection is associated with the AP,

next make sure the routing is correct. As root route -n will show the
routing table.

It appears there was a security advisory on the dhcpcd package which triggered a rebuild of our package.  The resulting package is being fixed now...  The Next ISO will have a fixed package.  In the mean time, you can revert to this p ackage

or wait for the new package on untested and install it on your 2.2.5 installations.

Remember to removepkg dhcpcd first or run upgradepkg /path/to/your/downloaded/dhcpcd-5.6.7-x86_64-2vl71.txz to replace the existing package
