Based on FURRY_NOVA's comment I may pass on this.
Well, if that be the case, there is nothing to stop one from using VirtualBox to run win10? :twisted:

^ After reading carefully though all the info provided, looks like a bit of a headache. Not so tempted to try. :(

Re: USM bug reports

Yes. It's only an edit at lines 90 and 390, so just replacing will be fine, as shown in the code block above. Tried to cover all the bases, but you might be able to spot something I've missed. :Search:

Re: [INFO & SCRIPT] Slackware Mirror Settings for USM

To be clear, ./USM/safm.sh is created and updated using Firefox ESR 52. 2.1 (64bit) and Mousepad on a Porteus Cinnamon 3.2.2 (64bit) system. No Windows system used. Okay, then. Let's get to the bottom of this, and doing it with mirrors should make it foolprrof. :twisted: /Td6WFoAAATm1rRGAgAhARYAAAB...

Re: USM bug reports

maybe it's my lack of understanding but I think usm should be more robust in its behaviour, at least it should manage errors in a proper way such as warning about them rather to try to continue executing as if nothing happened That is also my thinking, but in this case after looking into it in dept...

Re: [INFO & SCRIPT] Slackware Mirror Settings for USM

^ Looking at the 2nd code segment, the sed is copying lines from safm.sh to masm.sh, has not yet done the substitution, so must have reached end of data. This would imply that it has copied the whole of safm.sh, and in turn this would imply that the copy of safm.sh is incomplete. as the last line sh...

Re: USM bug reports

I have a recurrent bug with usm, sometimes it download a package as a 0 bytes archive, even when it is not zero. For example: as you can see usm find an ansible package which is 2328 K, but when trying to download it I get: # usm -g ansible The following items were found. Choose an number to confir...
