I know this question must have been asked before but i'm pretty new to all this so it's been quite the learning process for me. What is the easiest way to update slackware 10.0 and it's applications. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time once again.
After install, you need to select ONE (and only ONE) mirror for download packages from. Edit your /etc/slackpkg/mirrors and uncomment one of those lines, or include your own mirror. FTP and HTTP mirrors are supported at the moment.
Necro how do I edit the /etc/slackpkg/mirrors? Thank you for your help thus far. This is a lot of fun for some reason.
Originally posted by Draconian i used vi /etc/slackpkg/mirrors and it brings up the mirrors. now how do I uncomment a mirror? thank you
vi is terrible if you don't know how to use it, use pico, mcedit, or a gui editor like kedit and gedit to open /etc/slackpkg/mirrors, choose a ftp server that has "slackware-current" in it, remove the "#" from the line.
see if its working by typing "slackpkg update", if the server doesn't work try another ono
