What you thing is garbage are actually the files mirrorbrain uses to redirect your request to a mirror near you.

Just don't use https://mirrors.slackware.com if you want to not get these files, but a mirror instead.

STOP

Does it mean all the others utils will pull that "garbage" also if dealing with https://mirrors.slackware.com?

Yes. You can avoid that using complicated exclude statements, but IMO that's not worth the time to do it.

Ok. But can't those utils just follow the browser behavior, which doesn't show any "garbage" files?

This has nothing to do with the behavior of browser, that's just mirrorbrain that provides an HTML page showing only the "useful" (for you) files in the directory, but not the ones it uses to perform its tasks. For instance go there: https://mirrors.slackware.com/slackw...source/ap/vim/ then press Ctrl+u to see the HTML source code.
Instead the utils actually browse the remote directory, finding all files in it. If you want to exclude some of these files, you have to tell them.

Got it, so the clue here was to not use that mirrorbrain stuff. Then http(s) also works perfectly with wget.
Thanks!

How was mine offtopic, but then you spend the remainder of the thread discussing how to install vim on 14.2?

I was simply stating that 14.2 hasn't really felt outdated until recently when trying to build kodi. Considering the vast changes in software since 14.2 was released, I feel it has held up remarkably well... except for hardware support, but installing a new kernel and firmware is relatively easy compared to upgrading some other software.

Not a good idea:

https:/mywiki.wooledge.org/FtpMustDie
https:/www.debian.org/news/2017/20170425
https:/www.kernel.org/shutting-down-ftp-services.html

Despite its nam lftp can handle http.

Sorry, I didn't try to disappoint you.
The remainder was spent not on Vim specifically but on upgrading any software on starting to outdate 14.2 distro.
Hopefully, 15 will be released soon and we won't have to discuss who was offtopic

Looking at the thread title, that would be considered off topic. But when topics get to 10+ pages, discussion has usually strayed enough from the initial post that it's highly likely you'll see many off topic posts. It just seems a little hypocritical to ask me to stay on topic and then discuss upgrading software in 14.2 (which has nothing to do with when and what you expect from Slackware 15).

Time then, to stop the frustratingly useless off-topic rambling. Please only contribute to the topic of this thread, which reads "When and what do you expect from Slackware 15".
Create your own thread, or move over to ##slackware on Freenode IRC, if you have nothing relevant to say here.

These types of threads are breading grounds for off-topic discussion. When and what do we expect from Slackware 15? Umm... a stable system as soon as its ready.

Pretty much anything specific that someone is looking for in 15.0 should be discussed in the Requests for -current thread, and the "when" is always "as soon as it's ready".

What do we expect from this thread? I have no problems with it being off-topic, but to be called out saying we need to keep it on-topic just to the person who called me out go off-topic pretty much immediately is frustrating. In reality, if we don't want this to go any further off-topic, we should just request it to be closed, because this won't stay on topic, even if I never participate in this thread again. Or to request a moderator to split all off-topic discussion into a new thread, but that would take most of this thread with it.

Not to mention OP hasn't posted in this thread since it was created almost 1.5 years ago...

The discussion about issues building newer software on stable releases could be beneficial in a new thread, kinda like ponce's SBo scripts building on -current. It could allow many eyes to look at build failures and discuss various ways around the compile errors.
