It appears you are looking for files in the /tmp folder created by masm.sh and before the distro has been rebooted
and the /tmp/ folder cleared. :evil: I suggest you change the default msg to be
"< # of Worst Mirrors to Display > [/tmp Repository(default:slackware.lst)]".

Ideally IMHO a Mirror Settings script that would present the user with the options to:
- select all distro mirrors or just one
- then option to list the 3-5 fastest mirrors for the selected distro's mirror/s or the 3-5 slowest mirrors
- if a single distro was selected and the fastest mirrors option selected the option to choose one of
the displayed mirrors and update the distro's file with it
would be a very useful tool.

^ Thanks for feedback. Did not say too much because, needed to see how error message came across. Prior to running badm.sh, if you set the slackware mirrors by running sesm.sh, all the files will be there. i.e. after running sesm all , one can then pick up a list of bad mirrors which do not bear testing.

Anyway one can start small by putting them on command line after all. Expect these to be fastest mirrors with some sort of issue e.g. slackwarecatalogs, which crashes the usm slackware update, and fastest slacky with an issue as well. So that will be next small step.

Script to set the Slackware usm Mirrors enhanced with Mirror Exclusion List on Command Line:

Preoccupied with immediate concerns, but hey, DIY! (It's an IKEA sort of thing):
Mirror Settings script that would present the user with the options to:
- select all distro mirrors or just one
sesm.sh or Set fastest mirror for a repo: fasm.sh
then option to list the 3-5 fastest mirrors for the selected distro's mirror/s or the 3-5 slowest mirrors
/tmp repo.lst sort and cut or cut and sort, and then head or tail. Worked out code for this in the first post. :wink:
if a single distro was selected and the fastest mirrors option selected the option to choose one of
the displayed mirrors and update the distro's file with it
Run fasm.sh then then URLs from /tmp/fasm|main/repo.lst feed into a select, and after choice made, use manual setting of slackware mirror masm.sh to set it.

Now when looking for a program and come across one dated 2015, I'm reassured if there is a timestamp on page which says last updated 2017. Then know it's the latest version. So similarly, it is that after updating script a day or two may pass before getting time to finish the post. Once post completed, then update the updates entry. Consequently changed title from Updates to Updates Posted.

This brings us to the matter of choice, and I for one when trying something new or that I'm unfamiliar with do not like having too many choices. Like to be told do this, do this, and Bob's your uncle!

So in this matter the file can be anything you like, just have to edit script accordingly. Taking decision out of hands of user, have decided file should be badmirrors.txt in a directory .usm. :twisted:

Is it ripe enough so that you could make a gui to download and run these files? :twisted:

Helpful comments appreciated. :friends: Updated post: http://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php? ... 40e#p55999
Now I understand. :wall:

    For whatever reason I kept thinking the .usm folder was a USM created folder, like /etc/usm/ & /var/usm/, not a user created one. Thanks for clarifying it. :)

    Run the scripts pertinent to your situation, and let us know how much riper it has to be. :unknown:

    No idea how to make a gui, so be my guest. :)

    Very Final Enhancement: Script to Set Alternative Fast Mirror safm.sh just about crosses the i's and dots the t's, for me at least. http://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php? ... 6fa#p55999 :beer:
