swaret never finds an update.


I read the documentation at http://www.swaret.org/?menu=htus for how to use swaret, and I edited my swaret.conf.new to be swaret.conf, though I didn't feel any need to really change *many* options in it becuase they all looked good as they were..

What the problem is, is I do swaret --update and then swaret --upgrade and it says all of my packages are up to date, though I know there are new ones out, since this is a completely fresh install of slack9.1. Here's the uncommented sections of my swaret.conf file.

Code:
VERSION=current
ROOT=ftp://ftp.slackware.no/pub/linux/slackware/slackware-current/
ROOT=ftp://ftp.slackware.at/slackware-current/
ROOT=http://www.slackware.at/data/slackware-current/
ROOT=http://ftp.planetmirror.com/pub/slackware/slackware-current/
ROOT=rsync://slackware.orbital.us/slackware/slackware-current/
ROOT=rsync://rsync.slackware.at/slackware/slackware-current/

DEP_ROOT=http://mhlug.linuxorbit.com/swaret/
DEP_ROOT=http://gma.sourceforge.net/swaret/

PACKAGES_LOGDIR=/var/log/packages

REMOVED_PACKAGES_LOGDIR=/var/log/removed_packages

FORCE_PATH="$PATH:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin"

PACKAGES=1 
PATCHES=1
EXTRA=1
SOURCES=1

IMPORTANT=glibc
IMPORTANT=bin- pkgtools sed

EXCLUDE=kernel lilo

DEPENDENCY=1
DINTERACTIVE=1
DEP_INSTALL=1
DEP_UPGRADE=1
DEP_REINSTALL=0
MD5CHECK=1
PGPCHECK=0
DESC=NO
OFFSET=20
CACHE_DIR=/var/swaret
LOG=1
LOG_FILE=/var/log/swaret
WARNINGS=1
INFORMATION=1

NIC=eth0

DINTERFACE=0
TIMEOUT=25
RETRIES=5
PASSIVE_FTP=1
and here is my swaret log, though it doesn't really say a lot.
Code:
Sat May  8 18:59:43 EDT 2004: [ GLOBAL ] - COMMAND: swaret --upgrade      
Sat May  8 19:00:06 EDT 2004: [ --upgrade ] - Installed Packages are up to date!

That's why I'm so lost on why it won't work.

I went and downloaded the newest version of swaret, not using the one supplied on the slack CD, and it gets the updates now. It looks like there's about 500MB of updates to get, so I'm definitely taking this to school sometime to get them. I have a 169MB every four hours download limit.

You can exclude big stuff like kde or xfree in order to manage your dl's.
