USM Not Working

Post#1 by Krahazik » 24 Jul 2016, 19:12

On a fresh install of Porteus, how do I get the package manager USM to actually work?
All attempts to run the package manager result in nothing. No activity of any kind. No windows. No popups. No error dialogs. No icon changes. NOTHING.

Its a pretty icon on the system tray and the menu that does nothing at all.

Click on the icon in panel then it might ask for password type toor then I might ask it need to be updated click OK after in USM click on update then click update all after done close it out and rerun then it is ok to search. Hope this help.
EDIT:
I just did a update all so it should be working.
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.
