Install Fails (NFS/Mounted Dir)

NFS Install fails. The mount is proper and the files (A-xap, pacakges.txt are there)

It goes through a few packages in A, and a few more in AP then dies...

I can browse the directory with impunity.

Update...the problem is that it won't install from the .txz files. Even after I attempt to install from the NFS mount the xz and updated installpkg files, no luck.

Pointed the NFS share to an older version with .tgz support and it worked just fine...

You are not using the installer for Slackware-current probably, but an installer "borrowed" from one of the older releases?
