Ok, I'm going to post this in this section, after all I am a Vectorbie, am I not? Maybe someone is feeling the frustration I'm feeling.
Just a few minutes ago, I booted my laptop into Vector (which is, btw, the only system I have installed), and was going to check gslapt to uninstall emerald, when I open the System Menu and look for Gslapt entry, I don't find it. Already suspicious, I try to find it again, second eye sweep. Nothing. Open up term, command not found. What? How can this be? I didn't do anything to the system, changed menus or something, nothing at all.
Now I don't have a package manager. I'm frustrated with this, because last time I shut the laptop down, it WAS working, aside some other app problems and bugs, in a very much perfect way.
Edit: Well, I stopped whining and went looking for slapt-get and gslapt. Also needed, not sure why, gpgme, installed it, rebooted, copied /etc/slapt-getrc to another dir (just in case), and installed slapt-get. Rechecked /etc/slapt-getrc mirrors, all good.
After thinking about installing gslapt from source, decided to install it through slapt-get.
slapt-get -i gslapt-0.5.1-i586-1vl60 slapt-update-notifier-0.4.1-i586-1vl60
Then, slapt-get asks for (I had already installed slapt-get and gpgme
The following NEW packages will be installed:
curl libksba pth gnupg2 gpgme slapt-get gslapt slapt-update-notifier
I now have gslapt working again and under the System Menu, but now it doesn't ask for my root password anymore, got to load it from term. Anybody knows how to fix that one?
Not sure why it happened in the first place, if any more data/output is needed just let me know, but the 'workaround' did (half) the trick.
