Salix 15b1 fresh install - used gslapt to install updates - now libslapt is missing and gslapt won't run

Post by fyrstormer » 29. Jul 2022, 19:09

As the title states. I just installed Salix 15 beta 1 on a fresh VM, and everything was fine until I used gslapt to download and install updates. After installing the updates, gslapt won't run anymore, and when I try to launch it from the terminal, I get an error reporting that libslapt.so is missing -- "no such file or directory". Removing and reinstalling gslapt doesn't fix the problem, and I can't figure out how to download libslapt separately. Help?

Yes, if you follow the beta thread, you'll find out that some upgrades need to be applied in the right order. First upgrade spkg. Then upgrade slapt-get. Then remove and reinstall the qogir-icon-theme package.

The following should work if I remember correctly:

Code: Select all

sudo slapt-get -u
sudo slapt-get -i spkg
sudo slapt-get -i slapt-get
sudo spkg -d qogir-icon-theme
sudo rm -rf /usr/share/icons/Qogir* # for good measure
sudo slapt-get -i qogir-icon-theme

Yep, that worked. Gslapt works again. Thanks.
