Many sbo repository errors
Hi All,

I seem to be getting a lot of errors when trying to install quite a few applications from the sbopkg 13.0 repository.

Just questioning if anyone else is having similar issues, is the site maintained ? 13.1 has been about for a while now and there is no active 13.1 repository yet ?

The error is similar in all applications

" MD5SUM check for ........ OK
error occurred with build. Please check log."

I am running slack current 32bit and am wondering if this is causing the errors.

Just wondering

which repository and which version of sbopkg are you using?

sbopkg -v
cat /root/.sbopkg.conf

you should see that repository in a file inside /etc/sbopkg/repos.d/

cat /etc/sbopkg/repos.d/*
sbopkg has no script repository, it uses by default the ones of, and there is a 13.1 repository active from quite some time now there. :)

Do you possibly have an older version of sbopkg or maybe just an older version of it's config file? You will have a TON of problems trying to build packages for 13 on current. There is definitely a 13.1 script repo and I have had very few issues with 13.1 slackbuilds on current.

The SlackBuilds for 13.0 were designed for bash 3.x, which did not exit the shell (when `set -e` is set) when a subshell returns an error. bash 4 (included with 13.1) will exit if a subshell returns an error (when `set -e` is set). You'd have to throw `|| true` after certain commands to get SlackBuilds for 13.0 working in 13.1 -- but your best bet is, of course, to use the 13.1 repository.
