slapt-get-0.9.12c cannot resolve host
« on: February 19, 2008, 04:47:43 pm »
On VL-5.9 standard i tried to get gslapt/slapt-get to work, most times get error message about failure to resolve host or something like that. When it does work it seems like it takes forever, running slapt-get from command line. Anyway, using slapt-get-0.9.11f-i586-4vl58.tlz and gslapt-0.3.15-i586-4vl58.tlz works perfectly.

That slapt-get version works fine for me. Perhaps some of the mirrors used had some trouble? I think the slapt-get packages come with their own config file, thus resetting mirrors to the default setting when a new slapt-get package is installed.
Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.

Typical output when run from the command line:

Going back to slapt-get-0.9.11f with same slapt-get.rc file works.
