typos in latest /etc/slackpkg/mirrors(.new) [slackpkg-2.82.0-noarch-8.tgz]
 
I just noticed some typos that seem to have been introduced recently in slackpkg. for example,

from x86_64 version
Code:

# ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/.2/slackware/slackware64-current/
# http://ftp.osuosl.org/.2/slackware/slackware64-current/

a 32-bit x86 version of /etc/slackpkg/mirrors(.new) seems to have the same typos. there are a few more URIs that look odd, but I haven't checked each one to see if it's valid, I just happened to notice the main mirror was wrong.

I was also able to verify typos were there after reinstalling slackpkg-2.82.0-noarch-8.tgz in order to look through the default config.

What makes you think that is a typo? That is the correct directory structure. Did you actually try visiting the links?

That hidden (/.2/ dot-started) paths also exported as
Code:

ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/slackware64-current/
http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/slackware64-current/
http://slackware.osuosl.org/slackware64-current/

You should avoid using those direct links as they are there to allow the sys admins to reshuffle the disks around with only a few symlinks to change to keep everything working.

ruario, I wasn't aware these were valid paths. I didn't check them earlier, just assumed they were a mistake because they were a bit off from the usual URLs. now, I see that they actually work and the sky is not falling after all. sorry about that.
