Segmentation fault in USM

SBO finally updates -- updating the slackware databases appears to work now, but usm -u all scrolls all text out of the terminal window then says "segmentation fault". Upon trying to download packages, usm reports it can't find LIBS.TXT after all and fails.

When I try updating USM in 5.0rc1 I get:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ su
Password: 
root@porteus:/home/guest# usm -u all          

==============================================================================
WARNING!        WARNING!        WARNING!        WARNING!        WARNING!
==============================================================================
One or more errors occurred while usm was running:                       
 
FATAL ERROR!
Sorry, but while USM is in beta it only supports slackware 14.1+.
system_setup 15

Which implies you are using different mirrors & one of them is broken. The standard fix to tweak mirrors is sesm. :happy62:
