Disregard the find error. See Re: Simple Screen Recorder (Post by donald #68064) and Porteus - USM error

Are you able to download packages with USM? Are you using command line or GUI? What databases aren't updating?

Ok. Try this approach.

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
# https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=125&t=6759&p=54673#p54673
#set -x;

if [ `whoami` != "root" ]; then
    echo "Enter root password below"
    su -c "sh $0 $1"
    exit
fi

#usm -u slackware
usm -u slackwarepatches
usm -u slacky
usm -u salix
usm -u alien
usm -u ponce
usm -u slackonly
usm -u sbo
I do not know why the slackware update is failing for you after you ran sesm.sh. I suspect your safm.sh run may have impacted it.

BTW This slackware mirror is what works for me.

http://mirror.its.dal.ca/slackware/

And I don't ever recall using safm.sh.

There are reams of mirrors for the slackware and slackwarepatches databases. I am amazed sesm.sh can't find working mirrors for each of them for you.

As noted previously I use

Code: Select all

http://mirror.its.dal.ca/slackware/
for slackware and

Code: Select all

http://hpc-mirror.usc.edu/pub/linux/distributions/slackware/
for slackwarepatches.

Both work for me. If the one sesh.sh doesn't work for you manually edit the two /etc/usm/ mirror files and try the two mirrors that work for me.

Slackware is evolving and USM too but at this point the only database USM is having problems with is aliens.

Strange. Well, we will be here when you get back.

When you ran sesm.sh for slackware did it return a list of mirrors it connected to?

Hi Iksnip.

sesm.sh needs to be made executable. Open terminal in the folder where you saved sesm.sh and enter:

Code: Select all

chmod  +x  sesm.sh
then run sesm.sh. :)

Two options; 1. rerun sesm.sh, 2. manually tweak the problem mirror's mirror list files.
