Good to have an unlimited scrollback buffer. Just checked stdout to see what
might be there and found the reason for the warning:
grep: /var/lib/slackpkg/pkglist: No such file or directory
Package yasm-0.8.0-x86_64-1.txz is already in cache - not downloading
md5sum: /var/cache/packages//yasm-0.8.0-x86_64-1.txz: No such file or directory
ERROR - Package not installed! md5sum error!
I had installed Alien Bob's yasm to use the latest x264 codec when
building VLC, iirc. Once Slackware64 -current was released, it had
yasm and I have been deselecting it for update. Today I went ahead
and told it to update yasm, but it has the same version as his pkg,
because, he compiled them both.
Thanks for your replies and helping with my PEBKAC problem.
