Those packages are marked as obsolete in the index file. This is because when marked as obsolete the installer uninstalls them. Unfortunately the installer has a kind of bug and it downloads them , install them, and then un-install them each time.

They are marked as obsolete ,because this is the only way to make the installer know that when doing an upgrade from 3.6.x to 3.8 it has to not consider those packages.

If somebody whish to work on this issue he can check the installer code in /usr/sbin/dropline-installer and send a diff.

I know you are busy in making Gnome 3.8 a reality in Slackware, but I'm sorry to tell you that some packages in dropline 3.6 seems corrupt. Those are gupnp-av-0.10.3-i686-2dl.txz and libpwquality-1.2.0-i686-1dl.txz .


Thank you for your work.

Ok new_slacker, many thanks. I know where this comes from. I will try to recrete the repos. As the Barts server changed and there may be double packages with different checksums from the ones in the index file. I will try to fix this during this week.

Thanks for helping !

Ok, but i don't think so, I need to see where the installer points to. This happened that the packages were different on your side and droplinegnome.org, I have copied your packages to dlg.org but it seems they are in another location different too. I will probably just upload them to sf.net and release an updated installer which will point only to sf.net. But my old problem, time .

I checked my md5sums and they are same as the ones supplied in the IndexFile.

if you can tell me the location it was looking for I can fix that.

Hi, I have put up some updates for 3.8 thanks to Bart for some great fixes and shortly i should have built up everything to release alpha.
In this updates we are replacing some core slackware packages like ConsoleKit, polkit and polkit-gnome which now use PAM, and xorg-server patched to fix the gtk programs crashes.

After this I plan to build lots of updates for 3.8.3 and declare alpha state of 3.8.

Enjoy and report all troubles we are causing you.

Hi, the packages I mentioned before are still marked as corrupt... seems strange.

Can I download the packages manually?

How can I do to make easier for you to find the error?

Yes you are right, i have not worked on this issue after my first try to fix it. You can download the package manually and install it manually. After that use the UPGRADE function in the installer and it should go through.

Packages are here: http://www.droplinegnome.org/files/3.6

Ok, for all of you who follow this thread, there are about 32 updates up if i'm not wrong in the number. Lots of them anyway.
This should fix lots of problems we had up to now. Please report back any issues. The updates are for both archs, x86-64 and i686.
Enjoy.
