USM bug reports

Post#526 by rych » 15 Nov 2017, 05:41

The safm.sh stumbled too at some stage. I decided to delete /var/usm and /etc/usm, reboot, and start anew. Then usm eventually worked well. But before it did, it presented me with a different BUG:

As it resolves dependencies and downloads archives it doesn't seem to be checking for their integrity, and continues merrily to covert them to modules or bundles, which apparently install fine, except the application is broken. I went to the /tmp/usm and tried to open each archive and yes, one was corrupt.

Not sure if anyone is developing usm currently. For now I've decided that if anything goes wrong at all, any error message, I will be erasing /var/usm, /etc/usm, AND /tmp/usm. Then I must wait for a few days, unfortunately, before trying again. Only when everything looks smooth can I hope to have a successful installation.

You will note from the distribution files that there are many mirrors. Some mirrors may have downloaded some corrupted files and some may not have. Using the scripts you have tried helps to get around the damaged mirrors. Starting from scratch repeatedly doesn't seem to be the fastest approach to a solution.

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.

The permission error doesn't appear to stop the USM update from running and a search of the forum shows it appearing in several of Bogomips postings.

I wonder if it's tied to a virtual machine.
