I just update USM and was able to download flashplayer-plugin-11.2.202.632-x86_64-1.txz.
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.

Now the updates failed.

Code: Select all

 Starting slackwarepatches database update 
Downloading: CHECKSUMS.md5  DONE
Downloading: MANIFEST.bz2  DONE
Downloading: PACKAGES.TXT  DONE
Downloading: LIBS.TXT.gz  DONE
 There was a problem downloading the file: 

And even though the alien database updated ok the flashplayer still fails on the LIBS.TXT file missing.

BTW This for a 64-bit system.

You have a lot of problem updating USM? Every time I see your Problem I try it and it works for me. I don't know what the problem is?

Well, got the Update All to run successfully but still the Fatal error LIBS.TXT problem with the alien flashplayer module.

Why not try the built in update script (as root)?

Code: Select all

update-flash

I wasn't sure the 3.2 rc4 version would work with my 3.0 system.

Are the update- scripts in 3.2 meant to replace USM?

FYI

3.0

Just ran the Update All and it ran successfully but still the Fatal error LIBS.TXT problem with the alien flashplayer module.

I don't actually need the module but someone else might at some point. And I don't know how extensive the problem is.

3.2 rc4

Just ran Update All and got this.
