slackpkg install-new / new pkgs in mirror / kdei pkgs
1 Attachment(s)
Hello everybody!

Why when I run slackpkg install-new appear two packages directory /Kdei that were not installed, if there are other packages that are not installed in the same directory?

As far as I know, should appear all packages not installed, existing Slackware mirror or any new package to be installed.

Look at the pictures ...

Am I wrong?

It's a newly added package

kdei/calligra-l10n-cs-2.6.4-noarch-1.txz: Added.
i don't know with kdei/kde-l10n-tr-4.10.4-noarch-1.txz since it's listed as Upgraded, not Added

kdei/calligra-l10n-tr-2.6.2-noarch-1.txz: added in Thu Jun 6 18:36:44 UTC 2013.

Why the package appears to install? I use mirror --current, up to date!

If slackpkg install-new is identifying how new all the packages not installed, it should show all packages not installed directory in /Kdei.


Sorry for the terrible English. :p

You are mis-interpreting the meaning of the "install-new" parameter. It is not meant to install packages which you do not yet have installed. You use this parameter when you upgrade from one Slackware version to the next, in order to install the packages which had been added to the new release and which were not present in the previous release. The slackpkg tool looks in the ChangeLog.txt file for packages which are marked with the string "Added."

From the slackpkg man page:

            This action installs any new packages that are added to  the  official
            Slackware  package  set.  Run this if you are upgrading your system to
            another Slackware version or if you are using -current.
            If you want to install all uninstalled Slackware  packages  onto  your
            system, use the following command instead of the install-new action:

                # slackpkg install slackware.

OFFTOPIC: That manpage should get an addition that the command on 64 bit Slackware systems is

slackpkg install slackware64
