Gslapt/slapt-get upgraded packages


Hello.
Using slackware-current.
I've noticed some strange behavior regarding the $subj package manager(s). Example:
I had openssl-solibs-some version, don't know what, but lower than 0.9.8a-i487.
I upgraded openssl-solibs with gslapt. Now i have in the gslapt window the following:
name:openssl-solibs-0.9.8a-i486-1-upgraded | version:2006-05-14,22:56:48 (the date of the upgrade)
Now, name:openssl-solibs | version:0.9.8b-i486-1 has arrived.
Of course i can't upgrade it, because "0.9.8b-i486-1" < "2006-05-14,22:56:48"
I have this problem with many other packages. The only solution now is to uninstall the previous package and to install the new one. The second problem is that, when i will try to uninstall openssl-solibs, all hell will break loose.
Is this behavior the intended one? If not, have you seen it anyother place and do you have a solution?

Thanks in advance.

PS: gslapt 0.3.12, slapt-get 0.9.11b (and i can't upgrade until i solve the problem with openssl-solibs)

have you tried downloading the latest pkg from the slackware site, and upgrading it manually using "upgradepkg"? thats how i update everything on my box. using things like slapt-get and stuff has only gotten me in trouble lol.

I've had a similar problem before, it happens when a upgrade is stopped in the midway -like giving upgradepkg a CTRL-C or "kill"ing it. Just uninstall the pkg and use --install (or whatever it's called in slapt-get -I don't use it) to install the newer version of openssl-solibs

That is why I only use gslapt for browsing packages. I do the actual upgrades with slapt-get on the command line (actually, I have a script in cron.weekly to keep with slackware-current for me.)

i have used slapt-get to upgrade all my packages and it didn't gave me much problems. the 'slapt-get --upgrade' did stopped many times when downloading packages but i just killed it ('ctrl_c') and then again did 'slapt-get --upgrade' which basically picked up from the same point where it left. i had to do this many times since it would stop in literally every package dowload but it did worked nicely. all my packages are now upgraded and working with no problems.
