How to upgrade zoom-linux

Post by malecite » 1. Jun 2020, 14:29

Dear all,

Because of my work, I have to use zoom.us and today I have experienced a problem. Zoom required me to upgrade to the most recent version and considering that the package is not yet available in the repository, I had to try to download the package from their site. I tried to install it with spkg, but the tar.xz package was reported as having a wrong name.

Using zoom with firefox browser didn't work. The audio system is not supported.

I need to find a way to quickly upgrade zoom-linux package to the most recent version. Can anyone advise me what to do.

Thank you

Hello,

Zoom wants you to upgrade your clients to Zoom 5.0. Version 5.0.413237.0524 is made available via Sourcery in the Salix distribution. So then: Launch Sourcery, update database, select the desired package to install, install. That should have been it already.

Hello, thanks,
For some reason it is not automatically updating. I uninstalled it. Then i tried to install it via sourcery and it failed. The message was:
"There was an error while downloading source files for zoom-linux 5.0.413237.0524. All pending actions will be purged from the processing queue."

I tried using spi, but the download also failed for some reason.

Is there a way to resolve it?

I have no problems downloading the archives zoom-linux.tar.gz, zoom_x86_64.tar.xz and zoom_i686.tar.xz directly from http://slackbuilds.org/.

Please show the contents of the files:
/etc/slapt-get/slapt-srcrc
and
/etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc

The problem seems to be with slapt-src fetching the source archive. Using wget the source downloads fine.

Code: Select all

rich[~]$ sudo spi -i zoom-linux

thanks laprjns

I did that. It was not a problem previously to download the file. How to install it? I tried using spkg, but it reports to me "package name is invalid." I got that message now again, after using wget to download it.
I believe that the problem that sourcery and spi experienced before was not with downloading, but installing.
How to install it now that I download it spi won't install it from the file?

I never used SLKBUILD before.

thanks again.

After playing around with it I think all you need to do is clean out the slapt-src build directory and then try installing using slapt-src. So do this to clean the build directory:

Code: Select all

rich[~]$ sudo slapt-src --clean
Then update the slapt-src database;

Code: Select all

rich[~]$ sudo slapt-src --update
Fetching slackbuild list from http://download.salixos.org/slkbuild/14.2/...Cached
Fetching slackbuild list from http://download.salixos.org/sbo/14.2/...Cached
And finaly build and install the zoom package using slapt-src

Code: Select all

rich[~]rich[~]$ sudo slapt-src --install zoom-linux
