Is it possible to either remove Salix from the update or add an exclusion switch to the USM?
I can't remember the last time Salix updated but it's stopping the rest of the repos from updating.

Salix might still be accessed through slakfinder.org
or pkgs.org so this doesn't look like a deal breaker.

but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should consider.

At present , no sorry.

Just change the mirror for now. You can find the config file at /etc/usm/mirrors-salix.txt
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

Two suggestions n0ctilucient:

1. I have used this script at times in the past when I had similar problems.

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
# https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=125&t=6759&p=54673#p54673
#set -x;

if [ `whoami` != "root" ]; then
    echo "Enter root password below"
    su -c "sh $0 $1"
    exit
fi

usm -u slackware
# usm -u slackwarepatches
usm -u slacky
usm -u salix
usm -u alien
usm -u ponce
usm -u slackonly
usm -u sbo

# slackwarepatches down
Adjust to fit your situation.

2. Use the sesm.sh script posted here. viewtopic.php?f=39&t=7000

Hmmm..
If i remove salix in /etc/usm/usm.conf (line 27) "usm -u all" doesn't try to update salix
(i can still update salix with usm -u salix)

But one should simply select a different mirror in /etc/usm/mirrors-salix.txt

Hmmm..
The OP's question is a very open one. Possible? Of course. Possible to remove it from the official version in this instance. Nope.
But one should simply select a different mirror in /etc/usm/mirrors-salix.txt
Much easier fix.

Better put... can the USM be configured so if a repo fails (it will note the error but) the rest will still load?

Probably. Especially since I believe anything is possible if you set your mind to it. :happy62:

In that regard this thread might interest you: USM Skirting Sync Issue :)
