Message from JP on the Zenwalk-main mailing list


Quote:
Hi,

Big surprise for old Zenwalkers : I'm going to drop netpkg.

You can use it one last time : "netpkg slapt-get gslapt" and say
goodby.... sniff

We only miss dependencies for now, but Stefano is working (hard please)
on this

This Synaptic-like system is much more user-friendly and powerful, and
was requested in nearly all Zenwalk reviews.

I hope you'll enjoy

JP

btw : I'm away for a mission for 3 days (my silly job,... I'm going to
install 2 of these reverse-proxies called "Axiliance"), Axium please
take a look at mirrors to check if new meta files (PACKAGES.TXT) are
replicated as they should

The above statement worked fine, and Gslapt Package Manager is now in the GUI under System.

I got it installed but downloading doesn't seem to work. It always fails to download packages. I get no error messages when downloading lists just the packages.

Any ideas what I need to do to get it to work?

Thanks

I assume the next version of Zenwalk will just have slapt and no more Netpkg?

Apparently not! It seems Netpkg has a lot of fans out there so both will be included TFN.

This is interesting:
Although gslapt tells me netpkg is not installed, it is because I can still run it on the command line. Not only that, but when I start netpkg this way it says (varies depending on mirror chosen)

Code:
Checking for network connectivity, please wait...
Checking for availability of the dependency file on http://download.zenwalk.org/ i486/current/packages
Checking for availability of the description file on http://download.zenwalk.org /i486/current/packages
then it opens its own window.

I tried zenwalk live cd and it was simple kool. I loved the distro. Thanks to all developers and supports as well. I never worked on xfce b4, but now realised how amazing it is. Any ways ill be installing zenwalk 3 soon. I think zenwalk live cd lacks multimedia applications by default. Anyways its kool distro.
Hats off to all of you there. keepup the good work.
