usm-3.2

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

This file is created on the server (daily when automated) but at the moment I am doing it manually. I will update it tonight to resolve the problem. With rc5 release the process will be automated. Thanks.
Okay. Thank, you. I can't wait for rc5! :)

In usmgui, there is a duplicate entry for "Edit ponce mirror" in the Settings menu. The duplicate entry also points to the slackonly mirror.

Yes, and last night I had no troubles updating the databases either. Strange, but good result. :good:

When this happens you need to change the slackware mirror. I also experienced holdups today with updating USM.

Thanks brokenman.

The /etc/usm/mirrors-slackware.txt file shows the default to be:

Code: Select all

#----------------------------------------------------------------
# Slackware64-14.1
#----------------------------------------------------------------
# USE MIRRORS.SLACKWARE.COM (FINDS A NEARBY MIRROR)
# ftp://mirrors.slackware.com:/slackware/
http://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware/
# AUSTRALIA (AU)
Shouldn't we be using a Slackware64-14-2 mirror?



BTW

This one worked for me.

Code: Select all

# http://slackware.cs.utah.edu/pub/slackware/
# http://slackware.mirrorcatalogs.com/

I've emailed the maintainer of slackonly as his CHECKSUMS.md5 file is not correct. The MANIFEST file has a different md5sum to what is in the CHECKSUMS file. He says he will fix it this weekend. Thanks.

You can comment out line 280 of /usr/share/usm/funcupdateDatabase to get round the problem until he fixes it.

Thanks Jay.

I manually udated each database using the GUI which was a bit of a pain since I had to close out and restart the GUI after each update. :fool: I should have done it in terminal mode.
