    Default Rinse and repeat

    Just do what pure hate did it worked for me, quoted the sources that were failing and left the one posted by, "too lazy to press back and remember who it was lol " worked like a charm

    ahhh! just what the doctor ordered and it worked! Thanks Dr. GrEeN.

    any rate the point was I c/p alot of the mirrors and none of them seemed to work for me.
    So I checked it today a few more times and the only one that i got to work is the one listed below.


    Code:

    On another note it seems that slapt-get version 0.9.12a was the version I was using is the one that caused so many problems. however just installed .c and all seems to be working better.



    EDIT: I was also looking in the slapt-get 0.9.12.a faq under /usr/doc/slapt-get-0.9.12a/FAQ
    and noticed the following:



    53. Does slapt-get support the GPG/PGP signature verification?

    Yes, as of 0.9.12 slapt-get can be built with gpgme support that allows
    slapt-get to verify the signature of the CHECKSUMS file on each mirror.
    This requires the presence of the signature file and the GPG-KEY file on
    the package source. The GPG-KEY is imported into the local keychain using
    the --add-keys option. When running --update, the signature file for the
    CHECKSUMS listing is downloaded and verification is attempted. If the key
    is not present slapt-get mentions this and continues on. slapt-get only halts
    if verification failed.


    54. Why am I getting "GPGME: Invalid crypto engine"?

    Recent versions of slapt-get support GPG key verification via the GPGME
    library. GPGME requires gnupg to support the OpenPGP protocol. At this
    time gnupg2 is not compatible with GPGME and so gnupg must also be installed.
    gnupg 1.x can be installed side by side with gnupg2.

    The second seem to explain why some people are having troubles with using slapt-get and gslapt
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    it seems when i install manually slapt-get then Gslapt package manager stops working. it does not even start. Can someone also confirm this ?

    I will take a look bwise. To be honest I never use the gslapt package manager i prefer to do it from the command line however I know a lot of people like to use it so we will see if we can get it going.

    Will using slapt-get as posted here in this thread still be detrimental to the system overall?

    well by default i got errors on every link as well,

    but what i did was manually upgrading to the latest slapt-get version
    http://software.jaos.org/source/slap...0.9.10e.tar.gz

    and after that it worked like a charm.
    and on every url

    edit:

    on my other pc ( my main system)
    i installed bt ass well, and got the error. without adapting the sources url, i installed the latest version, and again it works like a charm again


    edit2:

    i had to put my slapt-get n the exclude list, becsuse else i would upgrade to version 0.9.12.X....
    and there the problem exists again

    I'm using the version of slapt-get which BT3 delivers.

    Testing a few several mirros does only prompt a few error messages.
    But if i will use the darkside mirror i think this seems to work. It is just aren't able to download the signature but i think this would not change or do it?

    Code:
    bt ~ # slapt-get --update

    My /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc is actually like this

    Code:
    # See /usr/doc/slapt-get-0.9.12a/example.slapt-getrc
    # for example source entries and configuration hints.
    WORKINGDIR=/var/slapt-get

    SOURCE=http://darkstar.ist.utl.pt/slackware/addon/slacky/slackware-12.0

    But i will also update slapt-get to a newer version and check if it works better than now.

    stay tuned.....

    please also read my latest edit...

    it looks like we are still not there....
    anyway, it needs more testing.

    what i did is upgrade everything, then it was broken again, i removed the just automaticly upgraded slapt-get version,
    then reinstalled the 0.9.10 version, and now everything is suddenly up to date and i don't see any slapt-get updatable version.

    edit:

    never mind what i said about the automated update after slapt-get works...
    i cannot reproduce it, so there is no bug.. at this moment

    if someone still walks into it, just reinstall the manually installed version.
