Smart Package Manager Error:Warning: You Must Fetch Channel Info
When I activate Smart, it first says, "Loading Cache", then I get an error as stated in the Subject line, then the little window pops up with the ,"Updating cache", which after 75-76%, I get another error which is posted below. When I click on OK in that las error box, Smart closes out. Gotta love all this buggy software around. How the hell do I access Smart? It always shuts down after these errors. Can this BS be bypassed in the shell mode? How can I insist that Smart fetch channel info from the command line. That for any/all help. I thought Linux was a pretty stable OS, not looking that way!
