Slackware 13 And slackpkg URL's are wrong (Swedish

I thought I'd post it here in case someone else finds that there's an
error when you check for updates (or try reinstall...).

All URL's for are wrong

Correct URL's (added what is missing in red)

They are also wrong for the ftp site. A month or so ago, they got rid of the pub directory and moved everything up one level. Slackware has yet to update their site about it. Also if you go to and search under the 64bit versions, nothing comes up (I used mozilla and firefox), also it linked the mozilla firefox package I found ending in program_name.tgz.txz.
