    Default Gslapt crashes on "retrieving checksum list"

    I've read all the threads here that I can find on slapt. I've tried changing the source. I've even tried updating slapt with FastTrack. Nothing seems to work.

    Here are some of the things I tried...

    bt ~ # cat |etc|slapt-get|slapt-getrc | grep -v SOURCE > tmp
    bt ~ # echo SOURCE=xtp:||xtp.slackware.com|pub|slackware|slack ware-12.0| >> tmp
    bt ~ # mv tmp |etc|slapt-get|slapt-getrc
    bt ~ # wget 'xttp:||distro.ibiblio.org|pub|linux|distributions |zenwalk|i486|current|n|gnupg-1.4.7-i486-1.tgz'

    Little help please......

    Due to the super-human speed (and absoute NON-need) of moderating all posts here, I figured it out.

    If you want to know how I fixed it, and if I can get out of moderator hell, reply here.

    I'll reply with the solution as soon as I'm unshackled.

    I did that. It took more than 3 hours to run and my problem still persists.

    As I had already tried that for updating slapt (as stated in my original post) I took your advice and tried to use FastTrack to update slapt first (with no change in the operation of Gslapt) and then I ran the slackware update from FastTrack.

    It took a while.....and now the OS won't boot.

    I get a login screen and when I log in and enter "startx" I get...


    xauth: creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.7434

    X: error while loading shared libraries: libpixman-1.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    giving up
    xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): unable to connect to X server
    xinit: No such process (errno 3): server error.
    bt ~ #


    I can relate to the "giving up" part - but that's about as far as I get.

    MOD EDIT:

    Do not use colours like that as it makes it impossible for people that do not use the black theme to read.

    PS. There are plenty of very good reasons for the moderation of new members posts, to which you have just highlighted a minor reason for needing such moderation.

    I removed slackware.com from the sources list in preference in the gslapt package manager and all is well.

    "all posts" are not moderated here. Just new members, for their first few days.
    It's considered preferable to wading through a sea of spam - at least by most members.

    BT is provided for you FOC.
    The forums are provided for you FOC.
    And still some people complain that they're not getting a priority service when they can't figure something out themselves......................

    It's not that I do not appreciate the free offerings, it's just that I'd rather pay and get something done than get nothing accomplished for free. But, I probably value my time more than most.
