looks like Slackonlys' server is down... lets hope its temporary...
maybe even a major upgrade related to the recent Slackware 14.2 release or some improvement to slackrepo repo builder? (pure speculation)

USM works again I just updated all.
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.

When will USM be able to use 14.2 files cause my USM is still load in 14.1 Slackware files?

Jack, we are need to wait brokeman - he will fix it.

Or you can try these commands in terminal

Code: Select all

sed -i 's/14.2/14.1/' /etc/slackware-version
sed -i 's/||.*]//' /usr/share/usm/funcsystemSetup

Hi. I have got the exact same problem as the OP. I tried Blaze's commands but no response in terminal and the problem persists. Any suggestions?

The OP just ran an update and it finished without a problem. :) Do note the OP is running a 64-bit system where as you are running a 32-bit one thus pulling different files. And maybe even from different servers than the OP, S. Africa vs USA..

The Blaze commands have no bearing on the problem you're having.

You will have to wait for brokenman to fix the problem.

If you are running Porteus v3.1 you will need to have version 14.1 in your usm.conf file. If you ran the commands from Blaze you will need to revert them manually. Next open up /etc/usm/mirrors-slackware.txt and change the mirror in there to something near you.

Ok, so I've checked that I've got 14.1 in my usm.conf file and I've have tried a variety of mirrors, but the problem persists. Also, I am using 3.1 x64 MATE now.

Slightly offtopic. Been using usm -i <pckage>, but that, without package is great, providing almost all the additional information I like to have at one go, when skipping between desktops, versions, and architecture. :Search:
