salix database update failed

Post#1 by Kulle » 21 Jul 2017, 15:19

I wanted to download chromium-pepperflash (using usm)
But "usm -u all" didn't come to the end:
starting salix database update
downloading checksums.md5 -->
And then:
Eternal waiting, no more reaction!
And now?
What's in such a case to do?
Is there any other way to download chromium-pepperflash?
Thanks for the help
Note: I tried it several times!

The usm update (salix) issue is known -- choose a different mirror

Hello,

I have worked around the salix update hang by updating the other databases individually. All the others work but you have to exit and re-enter usm for each one separately. The usm gui makes this easy to do, although tedious.

Best Regards,

This USM option is easier sci_fi. https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php ... are#p54673

Then to concentrate on the failing database use the suggestion donald posted.

^ Not sure what this has to do with the subject posted but the options mentioned above should work for your problem also.

Thanks for the help.

In terminal:
Mousepad /etc/usm/mirrors-salix.txt
Error
bash: Mousepad: command not found
How can that be? Mousepad exist (Menu All)

pFilesearch results:
/home/guest/.config/Mousepad
and
/usr/bin/mousepad
That's confusing: Mousepad and mousepad
Problem solved
I have to use mousepad
