usm error

First things first, all credits for providing this script go to Mr. Ed_P I can not reproduce that error. Here we go: [all in one ] [porteus_4 XFCE x86_64] guest@porteus:~/Downloads$ uname -rm 4.16.3-porteus x86_64 guest@porteus:~/Downloads$ ./usmupdate2021.sh Enter root's password Password: find: `/...

[Solved] restarting USM??

In porteus the ls command uses an alias adding the -F option, (and more), look in ~/.bashrc When using the ls command, the asterisk indicates an executable file. cat ~/.bashrc # Setup color scheme for list call <brokenman> alias ll='/bin/ls --color=auto -lF' alias la='/bin/ls --color=auto -axF' alia...

Error message from script: Removing the slacky file is not possible. file not found because the DIR was empty, but the update did work,no? one could use rm --force /var/usm/slacky/* in Line 24 to suppress the message. But what does * mean? * is a wildcard - goggle it. ;) [ * (asterisk) this can rep...

@Bob1414
Or maybe that's completely wrong because all the VLC xzm does is crash crash crash. I'd downloaded vlc-3.0.12-x86_64-1alien.txz

Run an echo " " > /var/usm/slacky/CHECKSUMS.md5 and repeat for LIBS.TXT, OPTIFEST and PACKAGES.TXT

Code: Select all

touch /var/usm/slacky/{CHECKSUMS.md5,LIBS.TXT,OPTIFEST,PACKAGES.TXT};

well,well,well... Have you tried your script with a new installation of porteus (or in always fresh)? How did it went? Of course one has to comment out slacky but you also do not get "extra debs". [and slackwarepatches] Moreover, if I boot in always fresh mode, all folders in /var/usm/ are empty by ...

restarting USM??

Ed...I beg you please,...(logic is required) a) If you take a stock porteus and run usm -u all, usm fails at slacky no matter which mirror you chose in /etc/usm/mirrors-slacky.txt because the mirrors don't work at all or deliver files which are not what they seem to be. Example: This is what I got f...

Ed There is nothing wrong. This MESSAGE [Usm is already active..and so on] is/was always there after an usm -u all update. No action like rm /var/lock/usm required. Simply rerun the search <package> command. [ usm -g thunder in your example ] EDIT If you have created the 4 empty files in /var/usm/sl...

apparently not in the right format. The files in /var/usm/slacky should be readable like txt files not *.gz etc. [ compare them with the files in e.g. /var/usm/slackware/ ] I know how to unzip the .gz files but what do I do with the .bz2 one? bzip2 -d MANIFEST.bz2 but you want an OPTIFEST file in t...

Yup, seems I can't get packages which are flagged "from slackwarepatches".. Tried with random packages from the /var/usm/slackwarepatches/PACKAGES.TXT file. ( not sure if i ever got one in the past) Everything else does work. Databases are updated - no stop because of usm errors - download,fetching ...

You're doing it wrong. :) -- just kidding. :) You will only get this error if you have never updated Slacky before - when it was still working. Now what? a) remove slacky from the DISTROS line [/etc/usm/usm.conf] to update the other databases with usm -u all b) Add Slacky back to the DISTROS line c)...

Yep, forget the slacky crap, the mirrors [etc/usm/mirrors-slacky.txt] do not work at all or deliver wrong files. example: [ slackware.org.uk/slacky chosen in mirrors-slacky.txt ] check the file (copied from /var/usm/slacky/) guest@porteus:~/Test$ file CHECKSUMS.md5.gz CHECKSUMS.md5.gz: HTML document...

Hallo b3nua
