SOLVED test-package-name-1.2.3-x86_64-1.txz

Post#1 by wacojohn » 08 Sep 2015, 21:47

Installed Porteus just today .. which accesses Universal Slackware Package Manager. It lists as downloadable and installable an item:

test-package-name-1.2.3-x86_64-1.txz

and I would like to know what it is before ... well, .. you know.

Thank you in advance.

Download it. Right click on it for the contextual menu to unpack it into a folder. And finally, look in it. And report. 8)

Uh huh. So ... do I download it? If yes, what do I do with it?? I also have a problem with USM at the moment. It will not update 'ALL'. it hangs at

Starting alien database update
Downloading: vercheck.txt DONE
Downloading: CHECKSUMS.md5.gz -->

and sits right there. Did not do this on previous installs. Until this gets fixed ... I can't download that 'could be anything' thing.

1.0 It happens that there are some occasional and temporary problems with the repos on which usm is based to pick up the packages. This is out of the control of porteus. It seems here that the alien repo is not responding. Update individual repo one by one except alien:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# usm -u slacky
root@porteus:~# usm -u slackware
root@porteus:~# usm -u ponce
root@porteus:~# usm -u salix
You will still have enough to work with.

2.0 This is only a fake name for any package. It could have been called any-package.txz.
equal
It does not exist. Nada. Il n'y a pas de paquet...

OK .... got THOSE updated. alien still fails. thank you. I will try alien later.

The 'test' package says it is in slackware repo .. but it will not download. I suppose that is good, 'cause I still would not know what to do with it.

EDIT:
Oh .... yes I do know .. if it ever will download:
Download it. Right click on it for the contextual menu to unpack it into a folder. And finally, look in it. And report.

John, it's a dummy name. There is no package/module with that name. Nothing to download.

Admins, two options at this point, imho, 1. create a module to download with that name, 2. change the entry on the GUI. Maybe something like "xzm module name(s) will appear here" or "Nothing searched for yet".

Sorry for my density. I would just like to see it gone from the list ... if it doesn't do anything. I will do that ..... after I learn to 'create a module'. Thank you .. immensely.

Sometimes, too many words. :bad:

Written communication is not always that easy. Sometime, communication as a whole.
