    Thank-you so much for being patient with my questions. I realize that this is "not your job!" I know that I'm missing the obvious here, partly because I've been looking at this for awhile, so thx again.

    Here were my results:

    # slapt-get --available | grep karamba
    superkaramba-0.37-RC1-i486-1ron [inst=no]: karamba 0.37-RC1 eye-candy on your KDE desktop

    # slapt-get --install superkaramba
    Reading Package Lists... Done
    No such package: superkaramba
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

    Done

    Again, thank-you for trying to help me see through my mistakes!

    Kind regards

    Well, neither karamba or superkaramba are in my list.
    So I really don't know why it tells you it's available (it doesn't for me).

    Could post your sources?
    (less /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc)

    PS: but now I'm off to work, so I'll check this later(if nobody else did already).

    Here is the list from less:

    # See /usr/doc/slapt-get-0.9.10d/example.slapt-getrc
    # for example source entries and configuration hints.
    WORKINGDIR=/var/slapt-get
    EXCLUDE=^kernel-.*,^alsa-.*,^glibc.*,.*-[0-9]dl$,^devs$,^udev$,aaa_elflibs,x86_6

    SOURCE=ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-10.2/
    SOURCE=http://software.jaos.org/slackpacks/10.2/
    SOURCE=http://linuxpackages.slackwaresupport.com/Slackware-10.2/

    I believe that superkaramba is on the last entry.

    Thx again for your help. Hope you had a good day at work.

    Kind regards,

    Have you considered using gslapt ? Or do you prefer using the terminal ?
    Sorry, but can't help on the superkaramba thing as I'm busy with a download in another distro at the moment.

    Hi googled,

    I suppose I don't really care what I use, but now I'm just trying to figure out why slapt-get doesn't find the file. I could also download the package and install it by hand. If I learn why this one doesn't work, I figure I'll be able to fix some other problem down the road...

    Good luck with the download!

    I just added the LinuxPackage repo myself, now it does list superkaramba, but I can't install it either.
    As you can see it is listed in their file list:
    http://linuxpackages.slackwaresuppor...2/FILELIST.TXT
    ...so I'm sure it's just a problem with their repo(it probably really doesn't exist but is still listed).

    Hi jens,

    Ok, I understand. It's good to know the correct syntax to the command line which you explained to me. I'll move off of this bone and go chew another for awhile!

    I'll try a couple of other repos.

    Your help has been very much appreciated.

    By the way, using your link to the text file, I found that it is indeed incorrect. This is what was learned:

    From actual HTTP location:
    Code:
     superkaramba-0.37RC2-i486-1ron.tgz
    From file list:
    Code:
     superkaramba-0.37-RC1-i486-1ron.tgz
    Now I know how to trace the links. You've been a great help!

    Well, I just asked about that superkaramba package on their forums, and they were friendly enough to answer the following:
    There is a delay between the posting of a package and when I update the support files. These have to be updated seperatly and sometimes I forget to do it. These are secondary to LP the way it works. You should always come review the package on the site before using any of the tools to install packages. They should be updating soon I just ran the update script for them.
    ...so that explains it all

    Yes, I think this is what is missing too.
