[SOLVED] USM repository preference order

Post#1 by aus9 » 24 Oct 2015, 13:40

Hi

sometimes when I search USM I find later versions of a package and so tend to go with that.

But here is an example of same upstream version, modest size changes.

Which repo do members prefer?

Yes I know I have it installed it, this is just an example showing different repositories and I don't know much about Slackware.

Code: Select all

usm -s leafpad

leafpad-0.8.18.1-x86_64-1ponce.txz was found in ponce [installed]
leafpad-0.8.18.1-x86_64-1gv.txz was found in salix [installed]
leafpad-0.8.18.1-x86_64-1_slack.txz was found in slackonly [installed]
I have no idea why USM claims I have all 3 installed, still new at Porteus but now on 64 bit LxQt.

so offtopic to question

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# find / -name leafpad-0.8.18.1*
find: `/mnt/live/proc/1511/task/1511/net': Invalid argument
find: `/mnt/live/proc/1511/net': Invalid argument
/mnt/live/memory/images/003-lxqt.xzm/var/log/packages/leafpad-0.8.18.1-x86_64-1ftm
/var/log/packages/leafpad-0.8.18.1-x86_64-1ftm
find: `/home/guest/.gvfs': Permission denied
find: `/proc/1511/task/1511/net': Invalid argument
find: `/proc/1511/net': Invalid argument
I am guessing USM is responding to

Code: Select all

ls /var/log/packages/ | grep leafpad
leafpad-0.8.18.1-x86_64-1ftm
and taking the version as installed so no need to upgrade etc

^ That's my guess. :) AFAIK if one installs a non-standard package and it does not show up in /var/log/packages, USM will not take it into account.

@ Bogomips

Yes but what repo do you tend to prefer to download from was my poorly worded question?

Has to be Slackware 14.1. After that in case of similar versions I go for alien followed by ponce. For big files slackonly can be painfully slow. Well, that be the pick of my brains. :wink:
