Try a different mirror for salix. Some have been having problems of late.

See some of the posts in this thread for more info. USM bug reports

If you want to do it with a script, you can use the scripts here: [INFO & SCRIPT] Slackware Mirror Settings for USM.

Once you get to build some module, don't forget to transfer it from /tmp/usm to /porteus/modules so that it is effective at next reboot. :wink:

had the same trouble myself today, I used the USM gui and installed each individually having to install one, exit usm, re-start usm for each repository. tedious, but worked

Hello Mel1974. Welcome aboard. :good:

Yes, that approach works and I have used it in the past but the link posted above your posting is easier and so is my usmupdates.sh shown here: Save files :wink:

If you can handle a script you can use the script I use here [INFO & SCRIPT] Slackware Mirror Settings for USM and never worry again! ;)
