Swaret


I am trying to install swaret 1.2.3 and getting an error. Error: Installing swaret 1.2.3 to /usr/sbin/swaret... FAILED! Any ideas why and what can I do to get this installed

Doing it as root? You should. Perhaps an existing older version of swaret there?

No... I mean probably there is already a file called /usr/sbin/swaret and the installation scripts somehow couldn't delete this file. You should try manually deleting it (if it exists) before retrying the installation.

That fixed the issue. I moved all the files where they are suppose to be and I am now running the program. I have to be in the /sbin dir but that is ok. Thank you all for the help.
