Problems upgrading packets with "swaret-2.0.0test2-2"


I have downloaded the dev version of swaret (Btw, I cannot find the stable version, even in the official website!)

Ok, so I installed the packet and did:

#swaret.pl --update
#swaret.pl --upgrade

after the "--upgrade" I got the message:

# swaret.pl --upgrade
swaret-2.0.0test2-2

Sparc,

I can't help with the new version, but I think you can get the 'stable' version here:

http://freshmeat.net/projects/swaret/

for some weird reason it downloads like this: swaret-1.6.2-noarch-1.tgz.tar

so IIRC, you need something like
mv swaret-1.6.2-noarch-1.tgz.tar swaret-1.6.2-noarch-1.tgz
before you try to install it. Seems a bit mickey-mouse I know :-)
(or I could email you my fixed-up package)

-don't forget to read the changelogs before upgrading Slackware-
