Slackware after installation


Hello my name is Andreas am from Germany and have successfully installed the Salckware 64 14.2 in the Virtualbox.
Need here your help. When I call in the terminal slackpkg update I get the following message.

You do not have any mirror selected in / etc / slackpkg / mirrors
Please edit that file and uncomment ONE mirror. Slackpkg
only works with ONE mirror selected.

how can I select the mirror in / etc / slackpkg / mirrors?

Are German-speaking users registered here, too?

greetings

Andreas

You need to uncomment one and only one mirror in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors with an editor of your choice(vi, nano), that is, remove the # in front of the mirror. Save and exit. Then run the following commands as root in order.

Code:
# slackpkg update gpg
# slackpkg update
# slackpkg install-new
# slackpkg upgrade-all

/etc/slackpkg/mirrors is a text file, open it as root with text editor and uncomment only one line with the mirror.

Just use an editor, nano for example, and open the file:
Code:
nano /etc/slackpkg/mirrors
Scroll down and you'll see the first group of mirrors is slackware 14.2. Each line is a different mirror. Just delete the # on one of the mirror lines and save the file.

Then run slackpkg update again.

>> redundant, responded at the same moment as others...

Welcome to the party Andreas, what operating system are you using virtualbox on?

Lots of languages at LQ but English when you post.

I never looked, but does slackpkg support finding optimal mirrors?

It does through http://mirrors.slackware.com , in fact I think this could be left uncommented by default IMHO.

The instructions in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors forcefully state that only one mirror should be uncommented.

The mirrors are organized by country and the city for each mirror is contained that mirror's listing. Pick one close to you.
