Sbopkg says I have no packages installed


I just installed sbopkg and installed three packages:
  • Transmission
  • cwm-openbsd
  • lemonbar
However, when I choose "List/uninstall installed SBo packages". It says I don't have any installed. Is there anything extra I have to do do set this up?

Are you on stable or -current? As far as I remember this feature doesn't work on -current.

If you didn't changes the tags these commands list the installed packages built with SBo's SlackBuilds:
Code:
ls /var/log/packages/*SBo
ls /var/log/packages/|grep SBo$
find /var/log/packages -name "*SBo"
To display the package full name then its short description:
Code:
find /var/log/packages -name '*SBo' -exec sed -n "1s/.*: *//p;6s/.*:/ /p" '{}' ';'

I'm not using -current but I vaguely remember reading about this change somewhere here in the forum months ago. I also used to think a symlink was kept for backwards compatibility, so it was still ok to use /var/log/packages. Did I confuse myself somehow?

if you use symlink, you need to make sure you added "/" at the end of the location and it will point to the correct locationi
