Slackware64-Current / slackpkg


I just installed Slack64-Current and love it but:
I can't seem to find a mirror listed in slackpkg for Slackware64-Current.

Also:
In the slackpkg mirrors list I see reference made to
kdelibs3-3.5.10-x86_64_slamd64-opt2.tgz but I can't find it on any of the mirrors and it is not on my install DVD.
It is however on the Slamd64-Current mirrors in /extra/kde3-compat

You could probably check the regular mirrors for a /slackware64 dir. You may want to wait for them to update though. Or put something like
Code:
ftp://slackware.oregonstate.edu/pub/slackware/slackware64-current/
in your /etc/slackpkg/mirrors

That's what I did, I just added:
ftp://slackware.oregonstate.edu/pub/...are64-current/
to the bottom of the list an all is well now I think.

Want to do it, too (first time I am interested in running --current, BTW), and just would like to know how you did it. Options I see:
  • upgradpkg everything from my local mirror directory
  • Burn a DVD, upgrade like usual

You guessed it: My Slackware 12.2 stable is running on 64-bit hardware. Is one way to be preferred over the other?

I tried the torrent but it was too slow so I just got the DVD from:
ftp://ftp.slackware.no/pub/linux/ISO...ent-ISO-build/

I used Alien Bob's nice mirror-slackware.sh script. It rsyncs a local directory with one remote repository, and creates iso images for CDs and a DVD, all unattended. Very nice!

I burend the ISO image onto a DVD+RW and installed from it System is up and running, and great!

I'm having a blast with it!
I've been trying to do guncash & deps since last night but the SlackBuilds for libofx & gtkhtml are taking me to task.
Nice partitioner in /extra
No longer need deps for smplayer & pokerth.
I think Eric & the Slack team hit a home run with this distro!

Code:
# slackpkg upgrade-all

No packages match the pattern for upgrade. Try:

        /usr/sbin/slackpkg install|reinstall

I think there's something wrong with slackpkg.
A whole bunch of updates came out today according to the changelog but I can't get them with slackpkg.
It goes through the slackpkg update ok but won't do the slackpkg upgrade-all.

I don't see a "Patches" directory @ ftp://slackware.oregonstate.edu/pub/...are64-current/

Maybe all the mirrors have not sync'd??

Ok, get things fixed:

sudo vim /etc/slackpkg/slackpkg.conf ,
comment out these lines:
Code:
ARCH=[i]*[3456x]86
PKGMAIN="slackware"
add these lines near them:
Code:
# x86_64 (Slackware64)
ARCH=x86[_64]*
PKGMAIN="slackware64"
Happy upgrading ~

Your right!
Gess nuthins broke, I just need to be patient. And perhaps look at things a little closer.
Thanks!

No, ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar...are64-current/ have no "Patches" directory as well
