Upgrade KDE 4.8.5 to 4.9.5 / Do I have to add ksecrets to blacklist ?
 
Slackware 14 fresh install.
ksecrets-4.8.5-x86_64-1.txz is present when i do a «slackpkg install-new»
The correct way to remove/deal with ksecrets from the install list when i do a «slackpkg install-new» is to add it to the blacklist?

thanks

Add this to the slackpkg blacklist:

Code:

# This one will blacklist all SBo packages:
[0-9]+_SBo

# This one will blacklist all packages by Alien Bob (Eric Hamleers)
[0-9]+alien

I also have another entry there that blacklists any packages I create. KSecrets will not show again.

My blacklist is configured exactly as yours and ksecrets-4.8.5-x86_64-1.txz is always present in the "Choose packages to install:" list when I type #slackpkg install-new

On Slackware 14 the "ksecrets" package will always come back in the package list of "slackpkg install-new" until you add it to the blacklist.
So you were correct the first time, robertolamb.

I am running Slackware64-current, except for the 3.7.1 kernel, with Eric's KDE-4.9.5 packages. Eric's packages are blacklisted in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist, but ksecrets is not listed in that blacklist, nor does it come up during slackpkg upgrade-all. I just checked and this is true on my system. Ksecrets is also not an installed package.

When I tried slackpkg install-new, it said that no packages fit whatever it said.

You have a misconception about slackpkg which needs to be set straight.

The slackpkg tool will search the ChangeLog.txt for the release which you are running and will look for packages that are marked as "Added:" there.

You are running -current ... not 14.0. In the slackware-current ChangeLog.txt you will not find ksecrets as "Added:" therefore it will not show up when you run "slackpkg install-new".

That seems rather obvious now. Too bad I wasn't thinking about that earlier.
