slackpkg error during upgrade patches


Hi,
I have a quick question. I'm finishing installing and configuring 12.1 with the help of Pat's readme files and Chess' install podcast (thanks!).
One of the last major steps was a slackpkg upgrade patches. After this was done I did an (O)overwright and immediately got an error warning about one or more errors ocuring while slackpkg was running:

xorg-server-1.4.2-i486-1_slack12.1.tgz: md5sum

Just wondering if this is a big deal and should I try to resolve it. (If this is commonplace with slackpkg, maybe I should delve further into manually upgrading.)

Thanks.

xorg-server isn't a huge deal. I'd say just try to manually download and upgrade it. Sounds to me it that it's just a mismatch of the md5sum of the package.
