I have a little question.
I try to make a iso by using the mirror-current script.
But it fail again and again.
I do this :
sh mirror-slackware-current.sh -l /home/Desktop/slackware -r slackware64-current -o DVD -f -v
Enabling verbose output....
# Mirroring slackware-slackware64-current from rsync.slackware.pl::slackware/slackware-currentrsync.slackware.pl::slackware/slackware64-currentslackware-slackware64-current ...
Error while testing the connection to rsync mirror rsync.slackware.pl::slackware/slackware-currentrsync.slackware.pl::slackware/slackware64-currentslackware-slackware64-current!
Did you make a typing mistake perhaps in the URI '-m rsync.slackware.pl::slackware/slackware-currentrsync.slackware.pl::slackware/slackware64-currentslackware-slackware64-current'?
The command's exit code was 23.
The error output was: 'rsync: change_dir "/slackware-currentrsync.slackware.pl::slackware" (in slackware) failed: No such file or directory (2)
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1505) [receiver=3.0.6]'
If I download the RC and actually get it to install, when stable is released can I just update to stable and have that or will it require a re-install?
Only reason I ask is I love Slack! But my machine hates Lilo and some other things and it will take time, a hammer, an act of higher power and patience to even get it to work. If I can't go stable when released no point in going through all this...
