USM Unified Slackware Package Manager

Here is a place for your projects which are not officially supported by the Porteus Team. For example: your own kernel patched with extra features; desktops not included in the standard ISO like Gnome; base modules that are different than the standard ISO, etc...

Are you talking about 1) the salix problem or 2) the One or more errors occurred while usm was running?
1) and hopefully it's fix fixes 2)
Personnaly, I have fixed 1) the salix database error by choosing another server and saved it in/porteus/rootcopy/etc/usm/mirrors-salix.txt.
Yup, doing it manually or using one of bogomips's script will accomplish that.

My USM changes, /etc/usm/* & /var/usm/ will survive also as I have them saved in a module I make of my changes.
However, I was wondering if usm would run with minima snags. Or at least that we would have some kind of common problems and solution for usm.
There was a script that bogomips had that did fix a lot of the USM errors, unfortunately I don't recall it's name or location at this point. :(

Real funny, qt-4.8 from usm tried to pull so much dependencies. When I download it from and txz2xzm, it turns to be the only dependency needed for smplayer. :roll:
francois, smplayer can be built with qt5 as well. Were you using kde5?

Good to know. No I was on xfce4. This means that smplayer alone could run on kde5.
Prendre son temps, profiter de celui qui passe.
