Slackpkg slackware current-64 bit


Has anyone else had an issues with the new mirror list from slackpkg-2.80.1-,no matter what i do to uncomment a mirror it still states i have not uncommented one. I used a back up copy of the mirror list from the original slackpkg installation and it does not have issues and iam able to select a mirror and run without problems.

i presume their must be a syntax error somewhere in the mirror list?

thanks todders

I do not have this problem (Slackware 64-current, with slackpkg up to date).

Please post your /etc/slackpkg/mirrors as an attachment so I can compare it with mine.

When you uncommented the mirror, did you also remove the leading space?

Remove the leading space so that it reads:
