Mirrors list

Hi to all members!
I'm running Slackware 14.1 32.
By mistake i deleted the mirrors lists. Can i reconfigure or create a new one?

TKS in advance,

One way would be to just reinstall the slackpkg package from your install media.
'upgradepkg --reinstall <path/to/slackware/ap/slackpkg-2.82.0-noarch-12.tgz>'

Alternatively try this. I use this mirror as it's generally the fastest:

Create a mirrors text file and list this:
#Slackware 14.1 32bit Mirrors

#Slackware-current 32bit Mirrors
Uncomment the mirrors if needed, I did one for you as an example.

Thanks for your fast response and accurate answer. I will try to do it ASAP. I presume this has to be done as root.
