Thank you both, I CAN'T DL 300 megs cause all I have
is 56k and I can't block the line for long. So what I do
is beg borrow and steal it all in "bits and pieces" with
the help of friends until I more or less duplicate what
is supposed to be a structure. This is also the reason
that YOU is neither for me nor for many like me except
for really small jobs of a couple of files!
I did finally get the stuff aboard and even duplicated
the tree ending with /yast-sources. But the files I
had were not link titles but the full titles with
version numbers. When I pointed Yast2 to the path, as
explained in the grp FAQ, Yast2 simply walked out the
bloody door on 'accept'... so I locked it behind ..ain't
gonna waste my time with it.
As long as I've been using Yast it's been loosing it
progressively. For the flash in the pan that it's
supposed to be it should know how to use 'find', in
fact I should only have to point it at Yahoo (if I
were to do it online and if it didn't already know
where IT's mirrors were). Having to give it an exact
and long URL is like calling someone to tell them
their phone number. Gimme a break, "grub" can find
things better with nothing but a paper clip for
But I did examine the ftp trees and there are loads of
differences, too many to list here. I ended up using
rpm with --test progressively migrating the problem
files to a /k322sidestep folder until all the remainder
tested ok. Then I ran rpm -Uvf *.rpm against the lot
and it all worked. I'll get around to the problem
ones another day if I don't go back to Slackware.
As for kde322, soso, that'll have to be another thread.
