sbopkg/slackbuild: libixp is missing


Hi,

I want to build wmii with sbopkg and so I need libixp. But when I start the process (starting up with libixp), then I get this error message "404 - Not Found" (on code.suckless.org).

How can I repair this?

Go to the website and find the correct current address. In this case, edit the info file, changing the DOWNLOAD assignment from http://code.suckless.org/dl/libs/libixp-0.4.tar.gz to http://dl.suckless.org/libs/libixp-0.4.tar.gz - and email the maintainer to let him know (upstream seems to have moved their source).

you can try also directly editing /var/lib/sbopkg/SBo/13.1/libraries/libixp/libixp.info substituting the line
Code:
DOWNLOAD="http://code.suckless.org/dl/libs/libixp-0.4.tar.gz"
with
Code:
DOWNLOAD="http://dl.suckless.org/libs/libixp-0.4.tar.gz"
you will have to do the same thing with wmii editing /var/lib/sbopkg/SBo/13.1/desktop/wmii/wmii.info, substituting
Code:
DOWNLOAD="http://code.suckless.org/dl/wmii/wmii-3.6.tar.gz"
with
Code:
DOWNLOAD="http://dl.suckless.org/wmii/wmii-3.6.tar.gz"
then it should build fine.

obviously when you sync again with sbopkg you will lose these modifications

EDIT: slakmagik posted the same thing while I was writing
you will find the maintainer email in the same info file.

Actually, if the file's edited through the sbopkg dialog interface (or just saved with an .sbopkg extension), it will be preserved through an rsync but, once the SBo info file gets updated, you'd want to use it in favor of the preserved one.
