That's not good. Slackware has MANY mirrors, anyway to identify ones that don't have the problem?

Probably possible, but takes time to identify what causes this message, then one can cater for it. :roll:

Something i didn't think of trying at the time was using the Wget command with URL manually to see if there was any errors with fetching the CHECKSUMS file.

Going to the mirrors in a web browser showed the file as being the same size across all the sites so it didn't cross my mind to try Wget to make sure it could complete a download.

SALIX repository seems to be down.

USM update works well until it tries to update Salix and hangs on the second line, and keeps hanging without any further notice.

It has been this way for at least two weeks.

It's very annoying as you have to update the following repsitiories manually and every time close and restart USM.


Nobody else noticed this? Strange.

@ Beff Jezos Welcome to Porteus.

^ You may change the mirrors porgrammatically so that salix works: http://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php? ... 042#p56037

Anything unclear, do ask in that thread.

Thks for replying you guys, but shouldn't that repository just correct its malfunction?

Is it still in business in fact?

It's been at least two weeks now. IMHO this means there is something wrong (I mean, other than the obvious).

^ Well, it does have a lot of mirrors, relatively speaking, 28 in all. So presume it's something to do with the mirror site going down the tubes, rather than salix, which still features on distrowatch when last I looked.

I have the same problem (hanging out with salix database) using usm 3.2.0

Re: USM bug reports

Post#464 by port » 05 Jul 2017, 13:51

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:

Code: Select all

# usm -i ansible

Package:  ansible-2.1.2.0-x86_64-2_slonly.txz  (2328 K) [installed]
ansible: ansible (a ssh-based config management framework)
ansible:
ansible: A radically simple, model-driven orchestration solution that
ansible: automates configuration, software deployment, and other IT needs.
ansible:
ansible: Homepage: http://ansible.com
ansible:
ansible:
ansible:
ansible:
ansible:
as you can see usm find an ansible package which is 2328 K, but when trying to download it I get:

Code: Select all

# usm -g ansible

 The following items were found.
 Choose an number to confirm. 
 ctrl+c to quit

1) ansible-2.1.2.0-x86_64-1_slonly.txz
#? 1

Processing:   ansible-2.1.2.0-x86_64-1_slonly.txz 
awk: cmd. line:1: (FILENAME=- FNR=1) fatal: attempt to access field -1
grep: /etc/usm/mirrors-.txt: No such file or directory
grep: /var/usm//PACKAGES.TXT: No such file or directory
grep: /var/usm//PACKAGES.TXT: No such file or directory

 The following packages are required. 
ansible-2.1.2.0-x86_64-1_slonly.txz [] [installed]

Total size: 0 KB
 Would you like to install the package/s? (custom paths are supported) [y/n]
total size 0 Kb and in fact if you proceed with downloading you get a 0 kb file and thus a invalid xzm module. Which I also find strange is the attempt to access /etc/usm/mirrors-.txt which is obviously an inexistent file and clearly an error forming the name. It seens like somewhere it loses the database name and thus what should be something like mirrors-ponce.txt ends up in mirrors-.txt . Same for PACKAGES.TXT files, they are in /var/usm under a database folder such as salix sbo etc and it is there where it should look for PACKAGES.TXT files rather than on /var/usm top folder
