"Edit and rename swaret conf" or whatever. PROBLEM!


Ok, I edited the file, and renamed it. But the setup doesn't detect that! what's wrong?! (checked faq and such, didn't find anything, sorry )

I suggest double checking that your /etc/swaret.conf has your expected edits.

If it has, what have you changed and what do you expect Swaret to do differently?

So what errors do you get when you run, for example, swaret --update? And try to keep the language clean.

Go to www.swaret.org. Download the file which ends in .tgz. Open a console. Cd to the directory you downloaded to. Type in (as root), installpkg swaret and then hit tab so it autocompletes. Then edit /etc/swaret.conf.new and save it as /etc/swaret.conf.
