Code: Select all

usm -u all
it updates correctli until the slackware package, the last file it give an error and it cant update, I have tried some other compilations of porteus but only in 32 bit version it works.The file dont downloads, and so I cant install any program. I have tried in 2 pcs, the same error, one notebook and one desktop. Help me please because the 32 bits version runs good but i will go to a friends home and other pcs on they have more then 4Gb of ram.

Open the file /etc/usm/mirrors-slackware.txt

Comment out (put a # at the start of the line) the uncommented slackware repository. Uncomment a repository close to your country.
How do i become super user?

Then you will need to try a reliable mirror. Perhaps try one in the US or Germany which are always stable for me.
