Sorry I am back,

I ran the slackpkg update, then I ran slackpkg upgrade glibc-solibs but when I run slackpkg upgrade-all I get the following, please bear in mind I am installing Slack 12.2 from DVD then connecting to the internet and executing this procedure. I am doing a full noobie install :


Looking for packages to upgrade. Please wait... DONE

Package xargs: is already in cache - not downloading
ERROR - Package not installed! gpg error!
Package xargs.c:445: is already in cache - not downloading
ERROR - Package not installed! gpg error!
Package main: is already in cache - not downloading

Package failed. is already in cache - not downloading

Searching for NEW configuration files

Some packages had new configuration files installed.
You have four choices:

(K)eep the old files and consider .new files later

(O)verwrite all old files with the new ones. The
old files will be stored with the suffix .orig

(R)emove all .new files

(P)rompt K, O, R selection for every single file

What do you want (K/O/R/P)?
OK! Your choice is nothing! slackpkg will Keep the old files for you to deal with later

Well all I can say guys is thank you all, I will try again, it's good to know I am keeping you all on your toes

Edit : I have just done slackpkg update gpg and then slackpkg upgrade-all and I am getting the same errors.

Oh you might have a bung findutils package then. Reinstall that manually and try again.

P.S look at the error and decode it

xargs xargs.c:445 main: Assertion `bc_ctl.arg_max <= (131072-2048)' failed.

The results are likely this xargs error being passed as package names :P

Hi mRgOBLIN,

thanks for that, but I am still confused as to why from a full vanilla install of 12.2 I am getting these errors.

Should I upgrade the slackpkg to the lastest version?

Well it's to do with the glibc upgrade and the findutils package.
I'll have a talk with PiterPunk and see what we can do about it but I think using
Code:
slackpkg -dialog=off upgrade-all
May be a work-around for now

Yes upgrade slackpkg but do the findutils upgrade manually first. (use upgradepkg for findutils) Followed by a slackpkg update.

Those gpg errors should disappear and with luck your kde4 should be fixed too.

the default desktop in KDE4 doesn't allow for icons directly on the canvas, right
Not exactly, KDE4 doesn't use the desktop folder the same way as it was used to put icons on the desktop canvas but if you still want icons but you don't want folderview you can just drag and drop any .desktop file out of a directory and onto your desktop and you have an icon. Most are in /usr/share/applications but if you have installed/compiled something that doesn't come with a .desktop file or you want to create a URL icon, a .desktop file can be created using any editor once you know the format.
