slapt-get finds no packages


Hi,
After installing successfuly Slackware 14, I wish to use slapt-get as the main package tool. I have added a repository from salix OS in the sources.
However, when I search for a package or try to install one (for example MATE: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ckware-938148/ ), it responds by saying that such package don't exist in package_data

Have I misconfigured something? Here is /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc :
Code:
# Working directory for local storage/cache.
WORKINGDIR=/var/slapt-get

# Exclude package names and expressions.
# To exclude pre and beta packages, add this to the exclude*:
#     [0-9\_\.\-]{1}pre[0-9\-\.\-]{1}
EXCLUDE=^aaa_elflibs,^devs,^glibc-.*,^kernel-.*,^udev,.*-dl$,i[3456 ]86

# Base url to directory with a PACKAGES.TXT
# This can point to any release, ie*: 9.0, 10.0, current, etc.
SOURCE=ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware64-14.0/:OFFICIAL
SOURCE=ftp://slackware.org.uk/salix/x86_64/14.0/salix/

# Sources for the testing, extra, and pasture areas  if you use them.
# SOURCE=ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware64-14.0/extra/:PREFERRED
# SOURCE=ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware64-14.0/testing/
# SOURCE=ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware64-14.0/pasture/

# Source for slapt-get.
SOURCE=http://software.jaos.org/slackpacks/14.0-x86_64/:OFFICIAL

# Package on a CD/DVD.
# SOURCE=file:///mnt/cdrom/:OFFICIAL

# Home made packages.
# SOURCE=file:///var/www/packages/:custom

Before anything:

Code:
# slapt-get --update

slapt-get successfuly recuperated datas from official sources, however with
Code:
ftp://slackware.org.uk/salix/x86_64/14.0/salix/... download failed : FTP : couldn't retrieve (RETR failed) the specified file
And at the end:
Code:
Somes sources were not downloaded. Please correct the sources and then run --update.
What shoud I do? Salix repositories are normally compatible with Slackware.

It looks like the url does not point to the root of repository - `/salix/' at the end is redundant.

I just added repositories with the PACKAGES.txt file, and everything works now.
