Its worth reading the announce/changes file
I was missing several packages and running a few obsolete ones like nail, python-demo etc.
swaret and slaptget are not much use when this happens

I successfully updated and rebooted after using slackpkg to do the update. I had to reinstall a few libraries which had got removed though and I had to resetup my user account after I updated shadow and passwd.

Otherwise everything looks good. (I'm using a fairly slim installation - no KDE, no servers running etc.)

That's very true. Even if you use slackpkg, swaret or slapt-get, you should just try and run a few programs after the update to see if they're broken. I installed several libraries after the update.

It's also good to go through the config files and manually update them.

It's not a big bother but on a large installation I can see it being a potential issue.

Raska I second that...I did a complete reinstall last night and flawless is the word.

Now that it's installed...I'll start rolling my own packages over this weekend. I still have to upgrade my server and mythtv box...shouldn't be a problem at all.

Tux,

After patiently waiting for slackware-11.0-install-dvd.iso to download with a torrent client since it first came the other day, and using the official torrent url, http://www.slackware.com/torrents/sl...ll-dvd.torrent,
and getting key mismatch errors I previously reported here yesterday, asking if anybody else has had this issue, I decided to check my iso using md5sum and gpg. Here's what I get for md5sum:
Code:
$ md5sum -c slackware-11.0-install-dvd.iso.md5 slackware-11.0-install-dvd.iso: FAILED
md5sum: WARNING: 1 of 1 computed checksum did NOT match
And here's my gpg check:
Code:
$ gpg --verify slackware-11.0-install-dvd.iso.asc
gpg: Signature made Mon 02 Oct 2006 02:13:16 AM PDT using DSA key ID 40102233
gpg: BAD signature from "Slackware Linux Project <security@slackware.com>"
Has anybody else had any problems with the dvd iso verifying integrity of the iso image?? Is everybody checking their own before installing? Is it safe to install from the iso I have?? Any and all comments, opinions, etc, are very much appreciated! I wanna get starting installing, but wanna make sure I don't have a bad iso image.

Thanks in advance for any replies!

no way would i install that. it might just be some sort of corruption (which could be bad enough) but why risk it? i would download it over again.

I was one of the original torrent seeders, and and my ISOs checksummed OK against the tracker. This is the result of my gpg signature check:

Code:
$ gpg --verify slackware-11.0-install-dvd.iso.asc

gpg: Signature made Mon 02 Oct 2006 11:13:16 AM CEST using DSA key ID 40102233
gpg: Good signature from "Slackware Linux Project <security@slackware.com>"
Something must have gone wrong in the downloading. What bittorrent client did you use? I heard stories about ktorrent where you had to run the torrent download twice because the first run produced bad chunks that were corrected in the second run.
