slackpkg 2.80.2 not showing "currently installed" version of pkg at bottom of console
 
Slack 64:

Usually, when using pkgtool, when cursoring up/down a list of potential packages to "upgrade", the bottom line of the console shows the current version installed, so you can compare with the version you are about to install.

Am I just having a 'thinko', or didn't slackpkg usually do the same thing? :scratch:

If it didn't/doesn't, then it should :)

Since slackpkg, much like Slackware, doesnt have a bug tracker, you should probably try contacting its authors.

Sasha,

This box with Slackware64 has slackpkg-2.80.2-noarch-3 and it displays the
line at the bottom left of the screen with the installed package. However ...

With grissom's patch from the other thread, it does not give me all the pkgs
that are available. It does with the original /usr/libexec/slackpkg/core-functions.sh

Here's the two screenshots:
original slackpkg core-functions.sh
grissom's patched core-functions.sh

Also, check me if I'm wrong or right ... slackpkg wants to downgrade qt3-3.3.8b-x86_64-opt3 to qt3-3.3.8b-x86_64-opt2 ?

I've already upgraded mesa and Firefox:

Without examining the particular situation, I'll say that: Yes, Slackpkg and pkgtool both, last time I deliberately checked, will offer to "upgrade" to an older package of something. They don't check whether the version is older or newer; only if it's different. So you can upgrade backwards if you like.

And, the reason I instantly noticed the missing text in the bottom of the console, is because I usually have a lot of packages installed that ARE in the Slackware tree, but that I have upgraded myself to a newer version. Because of this, I look at the text to make sure I'm not "upgrading" one of my own upgraded packages backwards back to the original Slack version of the package.

PS - Bruce, those links are dead for me :|

Thanks Sakho; before I contact them, I'll first make sure I'm not imagining things here; though I'm near 100% convinced that something doesn't look right, and that it's the missing text.

I mostly answered to your post cause noone else had done so yet. But truth is i don't even use slackpkg.

DDNS is updated successfully ...

DNS servers ... an ongoing problem in The People's Republic of China.

Thanks for posting ... the links work for me cause it's in /etc/hosts
and I'm on the LAN.

Meh :| they still don't work for me, but maybe it takes a bit of time for the DNS info to propagate. I'll check again afterwards :)

Thanks Bruce,

Code:

slackpkg wants to downgrade qt3-3.3.8b-x86_64-opt3 to qt3-3.3.8b-x86_64-opt2
slackpkg only knows about the packages contained in the official release - that one came
from /extra/kde3-compat/qt3-3.3.8b-x86_64-opt2.txz when I was testing fonts for "xconfig";
which is why slackpkg wants to make amends.

(Alien Bob pointed that out to me.)

Hi Bruce,

You need to apply my latest "patch" here to get updates in patches/ listed. Sorry for the inconvenience...
