Repositories for 5.9
« on: June 01, 2008, 02:21:38 pm »
Hello, downloaded and installed 5.9 and so far so good. I did however manage to bork Gslapt and reinstalled it.  It works fine but i need to add the repositories that some how got deleted. Where can i get a list to cut and paste?  Thanks

Since your copy is ruined or whatever, You happen to have a spare that comes when you install Gslapt.  It's named slapt-getrc.new.  If when Gslapt is installed, and it doesn't find a copy of slapt-getrc. It will rename slapt-getrc.new to slapt-getrc. This prevents your configuration from getting wiped out.

So as root in a console:
Code: [Select]
mv /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc.borked
cp /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc.new /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc

Hope that helps  ;)
