slapt-get: Sources failed to download


Hi,

I get the following error when using slapt-get

Code:
Sources failed to download, correct sources and rerun --update
Seems that it is because of the failure verifying the checksum signature:

Code:
$ slapt-get -c slapt-getrc.slacky --update
Retrieving package data [http://slacky.uglyplace.org/repository/slackware-12.1/]...Cached
Retrieving patch list [http://slacky.uglyplace.org/repository/slackware-12.1/]...Done
Retrieving checksum list [http://slacky.uglyplace.org/repository/slackware-12.1/]...Cached
Retrieving checksum signature [http://slacky.uglyplace.org/repository/slackware-12.1/]...Cached
Verifying checksum signature [http://slacky.uglyplace.org/repository/slackware-12.1/]...Not Verified
Sources failed to download, correct sources and rerun --update
My distro don't have the slapt-get man page installed, and I can't find the slapt-get man page on web. So I don't know how to fix it. Please help.

PS. trying to add the '--no-md5' to the command line doesn't help.

thanks

Post content of your slapt-getrc.slacky here. Probably something is wrong with configuration.

Thanks for the reply, l0vvrider.

I thought of that, but dismissed the idea because the file has been working with two other repos. Anyway, here it is:

Code:
$ cat slapt-getrc.slacky
# working directory, local storage/cache
WORKINGDIR=/var/slapt-get

# exclude package names and expressions
EXCLUDE=^kernel-.*,^alsa-.*,^glibc.*,.*-[0-9]dl$,^devs$,^udev$,aaa_elflibs,x86_64
# * to exclude pre and beta packages, add this as an exclude: 
# [0-9\_\.\-]{1}pre[0-9\-\.\-]{1}
# To exclude architectures such as i686, use the following:
# [\_\-]+i686

# source
SOURCE=http://slacky.uglyplace.org/repository/slackware-12.1/

after changing the SOURCE= of course. I meant, that's the only thing I've changed.

Hi sfxpt,

Just a couple of things off the top of my head:

1. Did you remember to run 'slapt-get --add-keys' after adding the new source?
2. Are you using the latest slapt-get version? Should be 0.9.12d
3. Are you able to access the repository from your browser?

Just for reference here is my file:

Code:
# See /usr/doc/slapt-get-0.9.12d/example.slapt-getrc 
# for example source entries and configuration hints.
WORKINGDIR=/var/slapt-get
EXCLUDE=^kernel-.*,^alsa-.*,^glibc.*,.*-[0-9]+dl$,^devs$,^udev$,aaa_elflibs,x86_64
SOURCE=http://slackware.mirrors.tds.net/pub/slackware/slackware-12.1/
SOURCE=http://slacky.uglyplace.org/repository/slackware-12.1/
SOURCE=http://software.jaos.org/slackpacks/12.1/

That IS the reason. I didn't know that since I can't access the man pages.

Problem solved. Thanks, Dig.
