Hello,

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 :
Code:
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]'
What did i wrong ?

You messed up several things:

(1) you edited the script and probably changed the RSYNCURL variable instead of the RSYNCURLROOT variable

(2) you used a commandline option "-r slackware64-current" to try and mirror Slackware64. Instead you should use "-a x86_64" to change the architecture.

So, your commandline should become:
Code:
sh  mirror-slackware-current.sh -m rsync.slackware.pl::slackware/slackware64-current -l /home/Desktop/slackware -a x86_64 -o DVD -f -v

Which "magic rsync script" are you referring to?
Could you point me to it?

Thanx a lot.

You can use Alien_Bob's-script 'mirror-slackware-current.sh'-UK from his toolbox.

The above link and others available from 'Slackware-Links'. More than just Slackware® links!

Since 'Slackware.com' is down you can use 'mirror-slackware-current.sh'-UK. Same script, Alien_Bob has graciously provided the mirror.

Nice request, but only a small fraction of Slackers will read that thread;
fewer still will adhere to Eric's suggestion.

I have a question:

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...

Thanks

You can upgrade to Slackware-13.0. There will be instructions in the
root directory of the CD1/DVD.

Check out slackpkg ... "man slackpkg" in a terminal. It's a nice
script to help keep your system up-to-date. And check out some of
Alien Bob's mirror scripts.
