I did as instructed at he above webpage and ran

wget -m -nH -r -np --cut-dirs=4 -R "=D","=A","index.html" http://download.salixos.org/i486/slackware-13.1/

using stated mirror for 32-bit packages, made the script file adddepinfo.sh executable, ran script,edited the
/etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc file. first leaving the salix.enials.net SOURCE intact, then changed it to the
http://download.salixos.org/i486/slackware-13.1/ reference; in both cases, I received errors on running the command <slapt-get -u> or <slapt-get --update> as follows:
