Slackware :: Slackpkg Blacklist Ignored When Using Clean-system On Current?

Apr 30, 2010

As per the subject line, the latest slackpkg doesn't honor the blacklist when using the clean-system option. It tries to make my multilib system unhappy.I fixed this by changing line 656 in /usr/libexec/slackpkg/

Slackware :: Upgraded System From 13.0 To -current Using Slackpkg?

Nov 22, 2010

I recently upgraded my system from 13.0 to -current using slackpkg. However, I did not go through warnings on the web regarding the exact procedure to be followed (first running install-new and then upgrade-all). I just did a upgrade-all and then rebooted the system. And then the system would not boot and gives a related error. Upon googling, I found suggestions as to booting from the install dvd 13.0, installing the old version of e2fsprogs and then reboot and doing the neccessary changes [URL]... Me being a linux newbie, don't know how exactly to do these things. Can anybody direct me with the list of commands/things to be done to solve this issue?

Slackware :: Regex In Blacklist For Slackpkg - How To Use

Mar 30, 2011

Today I moved my Slackware64-current installations to multilib. I blacklisted the gcc and glib packages in the blacklist-file for slackpkg. In the blacklistfile they say:

# Now we can blacklist using regular expressions.
# This one will blacklist all SBo packages:
I have blacklisted

# The gcc compiler suite:

# The GNU libc libraries:

How I can use the mentioned regular expressions in order to make blacklisting more efficient?

I just thought I would post this file since I was doing it for myself. This is the stock /etc/slackpkg/blacklist file with AlienBOB's multilib and kde 4.4.2 packages added. If I screwed something up please let me know!

# This is a blacklist file. Any packages listed here won't be
# upgraded, removed, or installed by slackpkg.

Slackware :: System To Email When There Is An Update Available Via Slackpkg

May 17, 2010

I want my system to email me when there is an update available via slackpkg. I decided to try a bash script to do the notification. So I started down this route:

VAR = $(slackpkg check-updates)
VAR1 = "No news is good news "
if [ "$VAR" = "$VAR1" ] then; . . .

I keep getting an error on the string comparison. I am guessing the variable types are different but I can't figure out how to fix it. Does anyone know how I can fix this script or accomplish the task at hand.

Slackware :: System Can't Boot After Updating To Current

Jul 7, 2011

I was updating slackware-current via slackpkg and while it was downloading/installing latest kernel (and other apps) my battery went off and now the system can't boot. I was thinking to boot through a live cd and through chroot command to re-install all the new packages. Would it work?

Slackware :: Upgrade From 64 13.0 To 13.1 Using Slackpkg

Sep 18, 2010

I decided to upgrade from Slackware64 13.0 to 13.1 using slackpkg. I did a slackpkg install-new and afterwards, upgrade-all. My first problem was solved regarding libblkid. The second one, with DIALUPS_CHECK_ENB and NOLOGIN_STR was solved too. Now, when booting, the system says it can't find /sbin/mount, swapon, hwlock and fsck, and also /proc/filesystems and /proc/ioports. It asks for the root password for maintenance and boots again afterwards. Do you have any idea what should I look for, because the mentioned /sbin/_files _ are at /sbin ?

Slackware :: Run Slackpkg Upgrade-all From Cron?

Mar 16, 2010

I'm going to rebuild a computer for a friend of mine. I'm going to install 12.2 in it and wanted to see if there was a way to install patches automatically from a cron. I don't think slackpkg can do such thing as a cron, correct? For anyone that set up a Slackware box for someone with little Linux knowledge, how did you handle the ability for the person to update the box?

Slackware :: Slackpkg Blacklisting ; Can A Wildcard Be Used

Dec 15, 2009

if I've missed this in the doc's, but I don't see the ability to "wildcard" blacklist for packages to _not_ be changed out via the slackpkg program.More specifically, I tagged all my packages like this:


note the "OLDFOGIE" in my package name? So can something such as:



be put into slackpkg blacklist file?

Slackware :: Multilib64 Install And Blacklist All Updates

Mar 30, 2010

I did a multilib64 install but I am new. I use slackpkg for updates and its recommended to blacklist all kernel ,glibc and gcc updates. In the past with slackware32 I edited /etc/slackpkg/blacklist to uncomment the kernel but it still updated the kernel. This time I used the command line 'slackpkg blacklist kernel', and the same for glibc and gcc. It brings up all packages in the window and askes what to blacklist. Is this all I need to blacklist? I thought there would be to many libs to list or are they lumped in the 4 or 5 listed.

Slackware :: 64 13.1 BETA1 And CUPS: Blacklist Usblp

May 13, 2010

After upgrading to Slackware64 13.1 BETA1 my USB printer stopped working. Blacklisting usblp fixed it. See this thread regarding problems with CUPS 1.4.x. It might be a good idea to blacklist it by default in 13.1, just like Nouveau, as this appears to be a problem that has come to stay...

Slackware :: Best Way To Roll Back From Slackpkg Updates?

Mar 7, 2010

Like others here it seems I had problems with the latest -current. I can't startx, no sound, etc. I put back the video drivers and such from the 13 CD but now have a bunch of other issues, video will flash every now and then and sometimes go blank so I can only reboot as exiting xwindows and going back in its still blank. I tried booting from the 13 cd and reinstalling without formatting my root partition but that dies in the kde games for some reason and setup won't start again. I was trying to not format and loose all the updates just put back 13 but that doesn't seem to be working.

Slackware :: Slackpkg Will Not Update SeaMonkey Solibs

Sep 28, 2010

I am running Slackware-12.2 and try to keep my box up to date with slackpkg. The last few security update from seamonkey shows two files that need to be updated:


If I look what is installed, only one package:
# ls -la /var/log/packages/seamonkey*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 68356 2010-09-28 22:33 /var/log/packages/seamonkey-2.0.8-i486-1_slack12.2

I looked back in all the slackware-security mails I have received and seamonkey-solibs seems to be added with seamonkey-2.0.4, for which the security mail was send on April-5. I don't see a recommendation to install seamonkey-solibs, and slackpkg will not update this packed, because it is not installed. I also had a look at the following page to find some clues: [URL]

Slackware :: Run Level 4 Configuration Fails After Slackpkg Upgrade-all

Apr 22, 2010

slackpkg upgrade-all I chose to use all old configuration files and keep the new ones. But after reboot, I got bunch of hardware configuration error and I cannot even login saying:

Code: INIT: cannot execute "/etc/rc.d/rc.4" Welcome to Linux (tty1) (none) login: root Unable to determine your tty name I remember that I made runlevel 4 the default in /etc/inittab so that it can bring up login manager directly after reboot but the upgrade doesn't recognized the configuration file correctly hence the tty problem.

Slackware :: Way To Command Slackpkg To Reinstall All Installed Package

Aug 10, 2010

I need to know if there is a way to command slackpkg to reinstall all installed packages...?I dont think there is but also wanted to know if I could somehow edit scripts, etc to enable this.I need this because as many know here I make variations of livecd's and I have injured one of my installs when I ran a script that I shouldn't have and it deleted several directories under /etc usr/lib and /usr/bin.I have no idea exactly what was deleted and thus I wish to reinstall all installed packages.There must be a way to do this without the borish method of manually reinstalling hundreds of pkgs.Is there a way to grep/ var /log/packages and say reinstall all?

Slackware :: Slackpkg Upgrade-all Removed Main Applications?

Sep 21, 2010

A big catastroph in my computer,I'm running slackware current Yesterday after finding a security update for thunderbird 3.1.4 in my mail, as I've suscribed to receive newsletter.So I run the slackpkg update and then a slackpkg upgrade-all. During this process I had a message asking me what to do with duplicated libraries of old versions for :

R Remove
S Skip
B Blacklist

So I decided to remove old versions. Since that all shortcuts for these applications have disapeared from my desktop. the commands for these programms don't work. And the menus have gone from the kickoff application launcher.
