If you are going to bomb out anyway, what is to stop one from trying to decompress all the normally used formats, and only execute "file $ERROR-FILENAME" if none are error free?

I think any code should start by trying to solve any issue the most easy way, since more complicated code also means more potential bugs. So, I suggest it should go the usual known way but include a handling only when an error occurs...
Cheers!

Still no go.

Quick question on the side: does USM run fastest mirror when more than three hours elapsed from last invocation? Reason for asking is that fastest mirror seems to vary depending on time of day.

I just updated USM with no problem about half hour ago.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

slackonly is down. One reason why I insist on all repositories being vetted and reliable. Hopefully it is back up soon.
