It depends, if you configured slackpkg+ so that 'ktown' packages always have precendence over stock Slackware packages, then the 'ktown' version of sip will not be downgraded to the Slackware version.
It looks like that is what's happening on your computer, works as advertized.

Nice work guys =)

Just upgraded my 64-14.0 with multilib and kde-4.10.5 in one easy hit... very impressed.

Probably doing something wrong again... but can't figure out what

When search for ffmpeg, I get this:
Code:
bash-4.2# slackpkg search ffmpeg

DONE

The list below shows all packages with name matching "ffmpeg".

[ Status           ] [ Repository               ] [ Package                                  ]
  uninstalled          restricted                   ffmpeg-1.2-x86_64-1alien                  
  uninstalled          alienbob                     ffmpeg-1.2-x86_64-1alien                  
  uninstalled          alienbob                     gst-plugins-ffmpeg-0.10.13-x86_64-2alien  
  uninstalled          slacky                       ffmpeg-1.2-x86_64-3sl                     
  uninstalled          slacky                       gst-ffmpeg-0.10.13-x86_64-2sl             

You can search specific files using "slackpkg file-search file".
But when I try to install it it only offers gst-plugins-ffmpeg-0.10.13-x86_64-2alien and gst-ffmpeg-0.10.13-x86_64-2sl

The weird thing is that if I type "slackpkg download ffmpeg", then it offers the list of packages I get from the search command (except the duplicate ffmpeg from the non-restricted repo due to my priority options).

In other words, I can't install the ffmpeg package, but I can download it

mmm.

I tried the same commands and slackpkg allow me to install ffmpeg.

Try that:
Code:
# bash -x slackpkg install ffmpeg 2>/tmp/slackpkg.log
then post the file /tmp/slackpkg.log

Found the problem: a stale package named ffmpeg-0.11.2-i486-1alien that was not being picked up by slackpkg.
I installed it manually a long time ago for testing something then forgot about it.

After uninstalling it, slackpkg performed as advertised (once again).

Sorry for the trouble zerouno

However there is a bug becouse the correct output of slackpkg search should to be:
Code:
  upgrade              slacky                       ffmpeg-0.11.2-i486-1alien --> ffmpeg-1.2-x86_64-3sl

Yeah... experimenting with multilib
This is my test VM and I should know better than testing stuff in this "unclean" environment, but it is the only I have at this location.

Maybe slackpkg didn't pickup the i486 package, since I don't have the multilib repo active

mmmm.

the bug is in slackpkg, not in slackpkg+.

slackpkg show only the packages with -noarch- -fw- and -${ARCH}-, and if you have a -i486- package in /var/log/packages you will NOT able to replace it with a 64bit version.

Slackpkg 0.9.2 released

to upgrade
# slackpkg update
# slackpkg upgrade slackpkgplus
# slackpkg update

This does not solve slackpkg install problem, but allow to notify the upgrade in slackpkg search:
Code:
# slackpkg search ffmpeg

DONE

The list below shows all packages with name matching "ffmpeg".

[ Status           ] [ Repository               ] [ Package                                  ]
  upgrade              restricted                   ffmpeg-1.1-i486-1alien --> ffmpeg-1.2-x86_64-1alien  
  upgrade              alienbob                     ffmpeg-1.1-i486-1alien --> ffmpeg-1.2-x86_64-1alien  
  uninstalled          alienbob                     gst-plugins-ffmpeg-0.10.13-x86_64-2alien  
  upgrade              slacky                       ffmpeg-1.1-i486-1alien --> ffmpeg-1.2-x86_64-3sl  
  uninstalled          slacky                       gst-ffmpeg-0.10.13-x86_64-2sl             

You can search specific files using "slackpkg file-search file".


Also I added the flag "VERBOSE" in slackpkgplus.conf:

Code:
# set to '0' to never show the download progress bar
# set to '1' to show the bar only in download packages (default)
# set to '2' to show always show the download bar
VERBOSE=1
When you download a package is useful the wget progress bar, but in the slackpkg update process you can't see if there is an error, so you can disable it.

# slackpkg upgrade slackpkg+
