I'm running 6.0 Lite and tried upgrading system, but gslapt wouldn't upgrade conky:
conky: Depends: curl >= 7.16.2-i486-2_slack12.1
All I show in gslapt is: 7.16.2-i486-1_slack12.1
Thanks for letting me know. Small problem which should now be fixed.
However..... In order to test any of the packages announced here, you need to enable the testing repo in gslapt, which is not normally enabled by default. Go to Edit > Preferences > Sources and tick the box for the testing repo, then update the slapt-get database (you should be prompted to do so).
If you didn't get the curl-7.16.2 package, you cannot have had testing enabled, which means that you would have been getting an earlier version of Conky (probably 1.7.0), not the one recently moved to testing.
I would suggest that you carry out a full update before
you enable the testing repo, then enable testing only when you want to test a package. When you do so, it is a good idea to check any deps that are brought down with the package you downloaded to test.
It is much safer to leave testing out of the Gslapt list unless you are attempting to test - otherwise you will end up with all sorts of (possibly broken) things that you were not expecting.
