problem with slackpkg clean-system


The last update slackware-current ( Wed May 15 23:46:00 UTC 2013 ) , slackpkg clean-system does not detect "ap/rexima-1.4-x86_64-2.txz" . Removed on hand

Quote:
ap/rexima-1.4-x86_64-2.txz: Removed.
This only works with OSS (or the ALSA OSS compatibility modules, which are
now disabled by default). Moving to /pasture.
somebody else? thanks

Doesn't slackpkg not really remove packages unless it meets certain criteria in the ChangeLog.txt + /etc/slackpkg/blacklist? I reckon either Alien Bob or someone else explaining that sometime ago. IIRC Its the same reason one should read CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT for, to check for removed packages since the previous release...

clean-system removes packages which are not present in the official slackware tree. rexima has been moved from /ap into /pasture, so, it is always in the official slackware tree.

Thanks for the replies phenixia2003

so I'll have to pay attention, to remove with my fingers, those packets that should not be installed on my slackware-curret. I did not know that detail.

thanks again
