Hey guys, I just upgraded sbopkg and now when I started it I got this:

sbopkg: Unexpected value in MKDIR_PROMPT

The configuration variable MKDIR_PROMPT is expected to be set to either YES or NO
(case insensitive). Its current value instead is .

Please fix this error by setting the appropriate value in
/etc/sbopkg/sbopkg.conf and/or in ~/.sbopkg.conf
and restart sbopkg.

Here is my /etc/sbopkg/sbopkg.conf:

# $Id: 724 2009-09-25 09:17:23Z mauro.giachero $
# Please read the sbopkg.conf(5) man page for information about this
# configuration file, including an explanation of how to set these
# variables.

# The following are variables used by sbopkg.  Any of these variables could
# be exported, if desired.
# Directory variables
# Non-directory variables:

# Set this to YES to allow multiple instances of sbopkg to run.
# Please read the sbopkg.conf(5) man page before doing so
# (otherwise, don't even think about submitting a problem report).

# The following variables are used by sbopkg and by the SlackBuild scripts
# themselves.  They are exported for this reason.
export TMP=${TMP:-/tmp/SBo}
export OUTPUT=${OUTPUT:-/var/www/htdocs/pkgs}

# The following variables are required and can be tweaked if desired,
# although most users should leave them alone.  Note:  rsync already uses
# --archive, --delete, --no-owner, and --exclude in the main sbopkg script
# so there is no need to add those flags here.  Similarly, wget already
# uses the -O options so there is no need to add that either.  In general,
# it is not recommended that users change these default values.
RSYNCFLAGS="--verbose --timeout=10"
WGETFLAGS="--continue --progress=bar:force --timeout=15 --tries=5"

I added MKDIR_PROMPT=YES and it fixed it though.

You probably forgot to merge /etc/sbopkg/ into the old one (or replace the old with the new, depending on how you like to do it). You should have revision 774 of sbopkg.conf. We probably should have a more sensible response to an unset value there, though. Thanks for the feedback.

And thank you, too, ponce and samac, for the good words. :)

@ slakmagik: You're right, I didn't merge them. I just looked. Sorry.

No problem - glad that's all it was.
