Same problem. Managed to get pkg with slackyd.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ uname -r
5.1.5-porteus
root@porteus:/home/guest# usm -v
 You are using USM version:  3.2.0

As to att's opening post see if you can adjust the mirror being used. Bogomips's sesm works really well for doing that automatically. [INFO & SCRIPT] Slackware Mirror Settings for USM
