Gtkmm and sudo package conflict on Slackware 14.0 x86_64 (multilib).


Hi,
In the procedure for upgrading from Slackware 14.0 to 14.1, my first step was to do the following, since I use a multilib system: http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:sla...considerations

Then, after ensuring that the blacklistings were in place, I followed the following procedure http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:sla...using_slackpkg . After upgrading Skackpkg database, I attempted to update slackpkg itself. However, the following appeared:

Code:
# slackpkg upgrade slackpkg

Checking local integrity... DONE
You have a broken /var/log/packages - with two versions of the same package.
The list of packages duplicated in your machine are shown below, but don't
worry about this list - when you select your action, slackpkg will show a
better list:

gtkmm-2.24.2-x86_64-1_SBo
gtkmm-2.24.2-x86_64-1sl
sudo-1.8.5p2-x86_64-1
sudo-1.8.6p7-x86_64-1_slack14.0

You can (B)lacklist, (R)emove, or (I)gnore these packages.
Select your action (B/R/I):
I then decided to cancel the action, since I don't know what to do. One of the two versions of the above package is to be removed perhaps, but I'm ensure of it.

for some reason you installed additional packages for sudo and gtkmm: I think you can safely remove one of them (each) with something like
Code:
removepkg gtkmm-2.24.2-x86_64-1sl sudo-1.8.5p2-x86_64-1
then try again
Code:
slackpkg upgrade slackpkg

I deleted the above mentionned packages. However, when I tried to update slackpkg, only the following appeared:

Code:
Looking for slackpkg in package list. Please wait... DONE

No packages match the pattern for install. Try:

	/usr/sbin/slackpkg reinstall|upgrade
Then, I went to /usr/sbin/ and I saw that slackpkg was not mentioned.

check if you have changed the mirror to one of 14.1 (in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors) before launching
Code:
slackpkg update
slackpkg upgrade slackpkg

I ran slackpkg update which surprisingly told me that I had to uncomment a mirror so that it could download and update the data, although I was sure to have configured slackpkg before.

Then, I ran slackpkg upgrade slackpkg and the issues appeared.

you probably have already updated it to the one of 14.1, check it with ls: if the output is like mine it should be already that version
Code:
# ls -1 /var/log/packages/slackpkg* 
/var/log/packages/slackpkg-2.82.0-noarch-12
you can also check which mirror you have enabled in your /etc/slackpkg/mirrors with
Code:
# grep -v ^# /etc/slackpkg/mirrors 
http://slackware.osuosl.org/slackware64-14.1/

Yeah, it seems that slackpkg was updated. This is what I obtained:

Code:
# ls -1 /var/log/packages/slackpkg* 
/var/log/packages/slackpkg-2.82.0-noarch-8
Code:
# grep -v ^# /etc/slackpkg/mirrors
ftp://ftp.nara.wide.ad.jp/pub/Linux/slackware/slackware64-14.0/
However, the mirror is 14.0. Something is wrong here.

Thus, is it not necessary to run slackpkg upgrade slackpkg ? I'm confused here.

You need to change the mirror to 14.1 and then run
Code:
slackpkg update
slackpkg install-new
slackpkg upgrade-all
slackpkg clean-system

Any time you upgrade between versions you should do a refresh of the system especially to remove older and any third party packages you may have installed and then rebuild them.
