I have a fresh install of Zenwalk and after I went into netpkg to add xmms and mplayer and it finsihed, I tried to go back into netpkg to update all my packages. When i entered netpkg in root terminal it said "Cleaning Temporary Files" and that was it. It never opened netpkg or anything like that. Any imput on whats goin on?

are you sure you didn't upgrade netpkg (with "netpkg upgrade-all/upgrade-new/netpkg").
This problem appears when netpkg is upgraded to the new version without loading the new config file.

If netpkg was updated, you can do :
Code:
netpkg upgrade-config
(and answer "yes" at least on the question about using the new /etc/netpkg.conf)
or :
Code:
mv /etc/netpkg.conf.new /etc/netpkg.conf
To solve the problem
