Swaret "Not enough disk space" ??


Well, I finally got my laptop working again. Now I need to update my system using Swaret. I installed 1.6.3 without a hitch. I changed the swaret.conf for version=current.

Next, I did
swaret --update,
then
swaret --upgrade

I approved the installation of all of the packages (45.6MB worth). Right after it TRIED to initialize downloading I received an error saying that there wasn't enough disk space. That is impossible. What did I do wrong? How can I fix this problem?

That is really odd...

This is the first time you have ran Swaret? If not, check under /var/swaret where all of the packages that you have installed via Swaret are, and you can remove them.

I had this problem also on a new Slackware install. I used slapt-get instead to upgrade. Swaret works now but my /var/log/packages database is incomplete. It tells me that KDE is not installed when I know it is. How do I rebuild the packages database?

Thanks,
Kent

it seems to be a bug in the new version of swaret. Try the test version swaret-1.7.0_test4-noarch-1.tgz

I've used it for ages with no problems whatsoever
