how to slackpkg update gpg ?


Code:
ROOT# slackpkg upgrade-all

You need the GPG key of Slackware Linux Project <security@slackware.com>.
To download and install that key, run:

	# slackpkg update gpg

You can disable GPG checking too, but it is not a good idea.
To disable GPG, edit slackpkg.conf and change the value of the CHECKGPG
variable to off - you can see an example in the original slackpkg.conf.new
file distributed with slackpkg.


ROOT# slackpkg update gpg

Please read the error output again.

Especially this part.

Code:
You need the GPG key of Slackware Linux Project <security@slackware.com>.
To download and install that key, run:

	# slackpkg update gpg
Edit: Maybe I need to read better too?

Sorry, its a bit too early for me it seems.

Is it the specific mirror? Does it still occur if you use:

ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/.2/slackware/slackware64-14.2/

Of course make sure the slackware version and architecture match.

I am using current, there doesn't seem to be osuosl mirror for it.

btw: slackpkg update gpg outputs it would save the file to ‘/tmp/slackpkg.BzU9yL/gpgkey’,
but there isn't a slackpkg.BzU9yL directory at all (hence no gpgkey either)

edit:
I found http://ftp.osuosl.org/.2/slackware/slackware-current/
but it doesn't help.

Are you running slackpkg update AFTER running slackpkg update gpg and BEFORE running slackpkg upgrade-all? I ask because I was having a similar problem recently, and it was simply because I neglected to do this...

Well, the reason why you don't see the temp directory or gpg key is because slackpkg deletes that directory after the command is run.

slackpkg has the following commands that get executed when you run `slackpkg update gpg`:

Code:
getfile ${SOURCE}GPG-KEY $TMPDIR/gpgkey
gpg --yes --batch --delete-key "$SLACKKEY" &>/dev/null
gpg --import $TMPDIR/gpgkey &>/dev/null && \
echo -e "\t\t\tSlackware Linux Project's GPG key added"
(These are lines 301-304 in slackpkg.) It seems to me like something must be going wrong in these lines. Perhaps temporarily turning off the stdout and stderr redirection to /dev/null would shed some light on the issue. In other words, change those lines to:

Code:
getfile ${SOURCE}GPG-KEY $TMPDIR/gpgkey
gpg --yes --batch --delete-key "$SLACKKEY"
gpg --import $TMPDIR/gpgkey && \
echo -e "\t\t\tSlackware Linux Project's GPG key added"
Then try `slackpkg update gpg` again and see if there is any enlightening error message.

Code:
ROOT# getfile ${SOURCE}GPG-KEY $TMPDIR/gpgkey
bash: getfile: command not found
ROOT# slackpkg search getfile

awk: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Looking for getfile in package list. Please wait... DONE

No package name matches the pattern.
Pretty lost.

editing /usr/sbin/slackpkg gives.

I meant just change those lines in /usr/sbin/slackpkg, don't try to enter them yourself from the command line. It won't work that way.

That's not a good error. This says you're missing the readline and aaa_elflibs packages, as that file is containted in both of them.

Did you already run slackpkg upgrade-all, but maybe had the wrong mirror picked (32bit instead of 64bit or vice versa)? This could install the wrong version of packages and could break a lot of things in your install. This could easily lead to issues preventing the gpg key from being properly imported.

yup, figured it out and edited the previous post.
errror message stays round the lines of
Code:
gpg: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
the complete output is in the previous post.

I didn't change the mirrors before the error occured.
After that i changed them, but couldn't run "slackpkg upgrade-all" anymore, hence i can't have run it.

to make it short: the install is broken beyond repair?

Well, it's hard to tell what exactly has happened to your system. Before scrapping it completely you could try reinstalling the aaa_elflibs and readline packages. I don't think slackpkg will work, but you can try that first. If that fails, try getting them from your installation media or a mirror (but make sure you are using the package for the correct architecture - 32 bit or 64 bit). Then use:

Code:
upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new /path/to/txz/file
where you replace /path/to/txz/file with the actual path. I'm not sure if upgradepkg will work or not with your system in its current state, but it's also worth a try.

But I think it's quite possible that those are not the only things that are messed up with your system.
