In one of the ChangeLogs:
slapt -i|--install normally installs a package, but in case an upgrade is available it upgrades it instead.
Code: Select all
Friday 07 July 2017 slapt-get-0.10.2t-i586-5slint.txz: Rebuilt. Use upgradepkg instead of spkg as back end of 'slapt-get --upgrade' to avoid that upgrading the package glibc-solibs fails. Install it with these commands: slapt-get -u slapt-get -s -i slapt-get # to check the version of the new package slapt-get -i slapt-get +-------------------------+
This comes handy in some situations:
- If you want that some package be upgraded before any other (as above).
- It allows to upgrade a package blacklisted in /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc, as a kernel package.
