System hanging with USM -u all

Post#1 by gotPortee » 28 Mar 2019, 04:38

Hi All,
After installing Porteus 3.0 MATE into a hard drive I tried to do an update.
USM -u all

The system seems to keep hanging at CHECKSUM.md5.db
I'm guessing this may be due to the system being installed on HD?

Thanks in advance!

No, but it could be due to a bad mirror file. Note which database is getting the error then find it's mirror file in /etc/usm/ and tweak it to use a different mirror.

hmm. I guess I'm also wondering how long it should take to download the CHECKSUMS.md5.gz?

I'm on a residential DSL connection.
If the download takes longer than 30 minutes would that be a confirmation its hung up?

Note the times on the two clock commands.

If your still having problems with the update you need to tweak the CHECKSUMS file's database mirror file.
ls -l /etc/usm/mirrors*.txt And the preferred way to optimize the mirror, and all the mirrors, is to run the sesm.sh script shown here: [INFO & SCRIPT] Slackware Mirror Settings for USM :happy62:
