VL64-5.9 checksum signature on found
« on: March 27, 2008, 10:59:20 am »

I have d/l'ed and installed VectorLinux VL64-5.9.

I am now trying to run 'slapt-get --update' so I can install KDE.  But I am getting a 'checksum signature not found error'.  I have tried several different mirrors...same problem with all of them.

Anybody have a solution to this problem?

Thanks!

I also installed vl64-5,9, wine 0.9.58. nvidia 171.06 drivers and want to install kde from gslapt but there i can't find it.
Is this a problem with 64-bit compatibility of kde or i must install it from other source.

 Thanks! Waiting for any reply!

I should have mentioned that I did not have this problem with my 32-bit VectorLinux-5.9-Standard installation.  Looks like its just a VL64 problem.

Hi Gene,
there appears not to be any KDE packages in the VL5.9_64 Repository yet.  but I may be wrong . This is not a fix but will let you bypass the checksum in slapt-get use the --no -md5 flag it will not check the md5 signature that way and should let you proceed.  this is not recommended if you a using any unknown sources though.
Cheers!

Tester Vectorite...Thank you for your solution.

The '--no-md5' does solve the problem.  But alas, you are right...there are no KDE packages available.  I'll wait a few days and try again.

Thanks!
