Swaret doesnt recognize my slack version
 
I did some cleaning up and deleting of package files the other day. Now when I try to run swaret, I get this error message:

You're NOT using Slackware Linux 8.1 or Higher or Current!
Please, Consult F.A.Q. or our Forum at http://www.swaret.org!

My swaret.conf hasn't changed. I am using 10/current. Anyone know what file it's looking for?

Swaret.org is down right now and the FAQ is not helpful.

Thanks!

look in /var/log/removed packages

what ever you took out will be logged here..........post them and maybe we can figure out what swaret is looking for......

Well actually I just deleted the .tgz files from /var/log/packages. I didn't remove anything just the files, wanted to free up some space.

youre not supposed to do it like that :\

Install swaret again and do a 'removepkg swaret'

Why do I want to remove swaret? It is installed.

What is your output with :

cat /etc/slackware-version

sigma957 09-20-2004 05:39 PM

Slackware 10.0.0

That's what it says.

You're out of luck anyway, slackware packages system use content of /var/log/packages directory to manage install/upgrade/remove packages.

This directory does not contain packages themselves but file descriptions which describe package + list of files provided by the package.

At least, have you got something in /var/swaret ?

sigma957 09-20-2004 08:28 PM

There are about 20 packages in var/swaret. I have my Slack 10 cds. Can I just copy packages to to somewhere so that it rebuilds the package list?
