netpkg won't start
 
Here is command line:

Code:

dawgie[~]$ sudo xnetpkg

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

    #1) Respect the privacy of others.
    #2) Think before you type.
    #3) With great power comes great responsibility.

Hi,

You need to give the user the right to use sudo in
/etc/sudoers using visudo

# sudoers file.
#
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
#
# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
jim ALL=(ALL) ALL

The problem is that you mixed current and snapshot repositories. You should either downgrade everything to current or upgrade everything to snapshot (which should become 5.4 soon). There is a guide in the Zenwalk wiki to help you with upgrading.
