I will be glad to work with it. It would nice to assist to some kind of revolution. The elements are there.

Thanks for the vote of confidence ... i may have been staring at it for too long ... hopefully it lives up to expectations. I'm not the best coder around ... but like a bulldog, once i get hold i'm not letting go until the job is done.
How do i become super user?

darkstar mirrors are not working. Replace the repo in slackyd.conf with: http://repository.slacky.eu/

http://mirrors.slackware.com/mirrorlist/

If you say so. But i just updated without a problem after following my instructions. Thats the reason they invented 'mirrors' no? They can't ALL be borked.

@guys

64bit slackyd users must edit /etc/slackyd/slackyd.conf and change to:

Code: Select all

slackware64 = yes
and

Code: Select all

repository slacky = http://repository.slacky.eu/slackware64-14.0/
for 32bit users it's enough to change to:

Code: Select all

repository slacky = http://repository.slacky.eu/slackware-14.0/
this will be done by default for rc2 of porteus-2.0

EDIT:\\
fixed 32bit repo as per Hamza report below.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
