hmmmm are you running Slackpack as root?, if not try "su slackpack" and then update the package list and try to download a package

(btw what desktop environment are you running? not a problem-related question its just Slackpack looks abit strange, xfce maybe? hehe)

I'm using sudo to run it, I'll try as regular root. I'm using kde.

edit: Tried running it as root and I didn't get the error, but it doesn't update from the repo.

edit 2: Got it to work. I just omitted the /slackware64 at the end of the url and it worked. Are you planning on showing the available pkgs in the repo?

Hey and thanks for your reply, glad to here you got it working

Well I was thinking to make Slackpack list all the available packets of the repositories in the repository list but this would cause a big pause if you have alot of repo's in the list, anyways I havent really decided if to do it or not, maybe I should give an option, lets say a "List Packages" button?

Another way, maybe have a sort of drop down menu that lets you choose which repo you want to list packages from?

@MysticalGroovy

Please consider renaming Slackpack.

1. Slack is not a prefix you should be using, it should be reserved for official Slackware software.
2. Even if you were right to use the Slack prefix, I think Slackpack is distastefully close to Slackpkg, the official pkgtools wrapper included in Slackware.

well there are hundreds of projects using "slack" in their names out there and they are not in the official Slackware project, why should `Slackpack` has a problem with it?

however I will try contacting Pat and see if he has a problem with it

@ zordrak: You do realize that the whole "slack" thing comes from the Church of the Subgenius, right? I think MysticalGroovy is well within his/her right to use the word slack.

Bottom line is, have you run it past Pat? It would seem more than reasonable to do so.

yeap i did, he has no problem using the prefix "slack" in my application, because its not a linux distro, only an app for slackware linux... Pat also forwared my email to Piter Punk (the guy that codded slackpkg) to get his opinion about the name too.

Is there a traditional slackbuild script for building this package?

Please consider providing one. As I'm sure you know, Slackware packages tend to be placed higher on the "trusted" list in the community when packages include a build script.
