14.1: Google-chrome upgrade will not build: file format not recognized
Trying to upgrade google-chrome on a newly upgraded Sony Vaio. Downloaded all 51M of the google-chrome-current-amd64.deb file and put it in the directory with the other files. According to the README it should build like any other Slackware package.
However, when I run (as root, of course) ./google-chrome.SlackBuild the process immediately fails with the message that the .deb file is not recognized and is not a .txz file. According to the SlackBuild script the input is supposed to be a .deb file so I'm puzzled as to the source of the problem.
A clue stick would be much appreciated,
