slapt-get not calling /etc/slapt-getrc


I've edited the file /etc/slapt-getrc to download from a mirror. When ever I run

slapt-get --upgrade

slapt-get tries to download from ftp.slackware.com. I'm not sure if I botched the installation a long time ago or what. Why doesn't slapt-get try to download from a mirror?

Hi,

I'm not acquainted with slapt-get (I use swaret in place of it) but I thought the conf file was /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc, and the mirror had to be edited in something like this
SOURCE=http://www.slacky.it/repository/slackware/slackware-XX.0

Bye

David
