(solved)sources paketmanager
« on: August 08, 2007, 03:10:45 am »

hi,

i use soho 5.8 with kde.

i did a upgrade in slapt-get (updated the slaptgetrc-file)

but for instance there didnt show up the prog frostwire.neither i found it by manually checking slapt-get.

should i add a line in the file?

below are my active sources...


SOURCE=http://vectorlinux.cs.utah.edu/veclinux-5.8/packages/
SOURCE=ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-5.8/packages/
SOURCE=http://vectorlinux.cs.utah.edu/veclinux-5.8/packages

is it wise to ad www.slacky.eu to the file. if yes, what would be the correct path?

greets günter

In your case, the line should go:

SOURCE=http://www.slacky.eu/repository/slackware-12.0/

The packages repository contains just packages that are already on 5.8 standard by default, so they're little use.
It doesn't make much sense to have 3 /packages/ repositories, all 3 should contain the same thing. But when you do a "slapt-get --update" (or the same thing in gslapt), it will download package info for 3 the same repo's. A waste of bandwidth and time ;).

Instead, try using

SOURCE=ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-5.8/packages-soho/   (vector 5.8 SOHO packages)
SOURCE=ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-5.8/patches/      (security update packages)
SOURCE=ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-5.8/extra/           (other tested packages)
