Open Gslapt, go to Edit > Preferences > Sources and check what repositories you have enabled. Then use the Update button on the toolbar. That should update the list of available packages for you.

I must admit that I find the Gslapt display confusing, since it seems to show both installed, older packages and new packages. Maybe I'm using it wrong...

You can use the View menu to display only the approporiate ones, or you can click on the Status tab to sort them to make them easier to find.

Please keep in mind the Slacky repository is not a Vector Linux repository, packages there are built for Slack12. Since VL 5.9 is built on that most packages should work, but there's without a doubt one that doesn't. They do have lots and lots of packages though.

You are right,Headacher.I tried to install Gyachi Messenger but the plugin gpgme is not detected,despite it's installed.What else should i add to the repo list?Thank you.

That doesn't sound like a problem that's going to be magically solved by adding another repo. I'm unfamiliar with Gyachi, so I'm just guessing what the problem could be:
gpgme is a library. To use Gyachi with gpgme support, you probably need to have gpgme installed when you build ( or package ) gyachi. If the packager didn't, you can try what you want but without luck.

There seems to be a new Gyachi release, perhaps you can try installing that from source... http://gyachi.sourceforge.net/ .

I have downloaded an rpm package and turn it into tgz.As you say,the source compilation can be the right way to fix things.I will try and see.Thanx again,Headacher.
