Slackware64 -current (20-04-2010) problem with slackpkg


Hi after upgrade my Slackware to the latest update (20-04-2010), when I do a search with slackpkg it said that I don't have anything installed.
Because I have a SSD I add this to my fstab:
Quote:
none /var/log tmpfs defaults 0 0
none /tmp tmpfs defaults 0 0
none /var/tmp tmpfs defaults 0 0
Can someone help me?

You have the /var/log directory as tmpfs (non persistant) and your list of installed packages is in /var/log/packages. So slackpkg is looking for something that you delete every reboot.

Maybe. That depends on what else you've done :-)

On my SSD laptop I moved /var/log/packages to /etc/packages right after install and added a line in rc.local to create a symbolic link from /etc/packages to /var/log/packages at startup.
