rsync_current.sh


I issue the command to run this script 24 hrs ago and it seems that is not doing anything after the slackware/kde/oxygen-icons-4.8.4-i486-1.txz

My question is. Is it safe to stop it there and try to reboot or should I give it another 24 hrs of running time?

Will I end up with a broken system if I stop it and the computer is not even going to boot in slackware if I interrupt it?

I didnt have KDE installed in my system when I firt put slackware in that partition, it was all Xfce.

I will appreciate all advices.

Do you have a very slow internet connection? That oxygen-icons-4.8.4-i486-1.txz package is 29 MB in size, perhaps it is just taking long to download.

THe rsync_current.sh script just downloads packages and creates a local mirror of a Slackware repository. It does not install any package. So, it is safe to abort the script and resume it at any later time. The script will pick up where you aborted it.

If you want a progress indicator, you can run the script as follows after you abort the one which is running now, and start again:
Code:
./rsync_current.sh --progress
