slapt-get error 404 on 1 pkg stops upgrade

Hi Folks. Just doing a slapt-get --dist-upgrade on Slackware 10.0 from the audioslack repository. Its got so far with downloading the upgrades and has stuck on the rosegarden one, returning "The requested URL returned error: 404" "Failed to download". No doubt theres a problem with the package on the server. Is there a way to skip certain package with Slapt-get, in this case the rosegarden one, so that the upgrade will continue with the rest? Nigel. aka farpoint.

I had the same "problem" once and my solution was to add that package to EXLUDE list in /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc
I think a switch should be added for those case to exlucude package directly from command-line, maybe you can send that suggestion to slapt-get author.

Hi. Thanks for the reply. After posting the ? I looked around on the jaos site and found the reference to /etc/slapt-getrc and the exclude option. I feel a bit stupid really as I've used this before to get access to the kernel updates. When you've got multiple distros on different drives it's easy to forget the procedure. I put rosegarden on the exclude list and went for slapt-get --dist-upgrade again. This time it didn't like libsigc++. Added that to the exclude list and then it finished the upgrades for the kernel and alsa modules. I will post to the Slapt-get list, but don't really understand what these 404 errors are. Are they broken packages on the server? The package is detected on the server. For instance the rosegarden one. I looked in /var/slapt-get/sequencers/rosegarden-4 and the updated version was showing there , but at 0 bytes. Clearly the file had been setup but nothing downloaded to it. I had the same 404 error when trying to get qjackctl as a fresh install. I think that I ended up getting it from sourceforge and manually installing it. Also as a side issue. I run slapt-get --update, then, slapt-get dist-upgrade. I then get a big run of "Regex Error: Invalid preceding regular expression
Failed to compile regex" I see on jaos site that regex is used for defining excludes in /etc/slapt-getrc. I tried running slapt-get --install regex --reinstall, but when I run Slapt-get --update and then slapt-get --dist-upgrade these same regex errors are still there. I will post this problem as well to the slapt-get user list. Thanks again for the reply. Nigel. aka farpoint.
