slackpkg complains about missing files


Hi everyone!

This forum helped me a lot ever since i converted to linux.
This time i have to post a thread myself since i couldn't find one that solved my problem and google failed me (except for some pages in italian, which i don't understand ).

I recently installed Slackware 13. I was looking for an equivalent to apt-get which i'm accustomed to.
So installed slackpkg, choose a mirror from /etc/slackpkg/mirrors and tried
Code:
slackpkg update
which worked fine until:

Code:
cp: cannot stat `/tmp/slackpkg.IcmmwI/CHECKSUMS.md5': No such file or directory
                Package descriptions
        Formatting lists to slackpkg style...
                Package List
cp: cannot stat `/tmp/slackpkg.IcmmwI/*-filelist.gz': No such file or directory
                Package descriptions
cp: cannot stat `/tmp/slackpkg.IcmmwI/PACKAGES.TXT': No such file or directory
I was looking for some help in IRC channels, the only hints i got were "You don't have enough diskspace" and "You don't have a tmp directory".
Well, there's plenty of diskspace and i certainly have /tmp.

Any help is appreciated.

You need to run this task as root. This is just a generic suggestion and it doesn't explain the missing files in /tmp.

Make sure you have universal read/write for /tmp. This is another generic piece of advice, it shouldn't have affected the outcome of the update if you were running as root.

Code:
root@slack:~# ls -ld /tmp/
drwxrwxrwt 5 root root 4096 2009-10-10 12:51 /tmp//

Maybe this helps, this is the portuguese (not italian ) thread i found.

This guy is only missing /tmp/slackpkg.N2GFQe/PACKAGES.TXT

The other two (that i am missing) are being downloaded with slackpkg update in his case.

Here is what my output looks like:

You can try slapt-get as you said you were looking for an alternative to apt-get
