slackpkg problems


Slackpkg seems to be having problems finding files, even tho if correctly finds packages to upgrade. This is a typical output:
Code:
--15:30:40--  ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk/sites/ftp.sla...i486-1.tgz.asc
           => `/var/cache/packages/mozilla-1.7.11-i486-1.tgz.asc'
Resolving ftp.mirror.ac.uk... 194.80.135.25
Connecting to ftp.mirror.ac.uk|194.80.135.25|:21... connected.

==> PASV ... done.    ==> RETR mozilla-1.7.11-i486-1.tgz.asc ... 
No such file `mozilla-1.7.11-i486-1.tgz.asc'.

md5sum: /var/cache/packages/mozilla-1.7.11-i486-1.tgz: No such file or directory
        ERROR - Package not installed! gpg error!
I've tried a few different servers and 10.2 and current with same problem. Also it seems to have started around the time 10.2 came along.

Any ideas?

which one did u try?

So far I have only use either Australia (recommended)/ USA slackware-current mirror. For my experience, some sites claimed to be current is not really current. They may be up-to-date some days ago, so you may not find suitable packages from those sites.

Just a wild guess for other mirrors that are not current
Or some sites may be temporaily removed or no longer exists?

Hope this helps.

solved - found a working mirror:
http://slackware.mirrors.tds.net/pub...kware-current/

I guess they are just slow catching up
