[Solved...] Salix repo doesn't load...

Post#1 by n0ctilucient » 21 Apr 2018, 18:13

@ the cmdline...

Code: Select all

usm -u all
then it stops @ this...

Code: Select all

   Starting Salix database update
Downloading: CHECKSUMS.md5 -->
It would be nice if this repo could be bypassed to allow the others to load... ;)

:hmmm: I do NOT have the "right" to tell anyone what they should do...
but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should "consider".

/etc/usm/usm.conf
remove salix at line 27
DISTROS="slackware slackwarepatches slacky salix alien ponce slackonly"
usm -u all will ignore salix then but you can still update salix manually
with usm -u salix

Maybe a temporary glitch in repo since it seems to be working now.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.
