+ 5. Troubleshooting
+
+
+
+ 1. Features
+
+ Jaospkg tries to emulate Debian's apt-get as closely as possible.
+
+ * cache package data and update data from mirror site
+ * show packages that are available (from cached data)
+ * allow packages to be retrieved and installed by name
+ * allow updates to be retrieved and applied (frontent to updatepkg)
+ * show description of packages
+ * list installed packages
+ * remove packages (frontent to removepkg)
+ * --dist-upgrade from one slackware release to another
+ * exclude packages from upgrades
+
+
+
+ 2. Requirements
+
+ The following packages are required: make, gcc, curl, glibc,
+ kernel-headers, binutils, zlib, and openssl
+
+ 3. Installation
+
+ See INSTALL.
+
+
+
+ 4. jaospkgrc
+
+ The jaospkgrc file consists currently of the following keys:
+ MIRROR
+ WORKINGDIR
+
+ Choose mirror from slackware.com mirror list:
+ lynx -source http://www.slackware.com/getslack/|grep -i href \
+ |awk -F "HREF=" '{print $2}'|cut -f2 -d'"'
+
+ The MIRROR must be a path to a valid slackware release directory.
+
+ WORKINGDIR will hold the package data and downloaded packages.
+
+ EXCLUDE is a comma seperated list of pkgs you want excluded from
+ updating.
+
+
+
+ 5. Troubleshooting
+
+ Probably lots of bugs. email bug reports to me:
+ Jason Woodward <woodwardj at jaos dot org>
+
+ Make sure --update is ran and downloaded *_list files are good.
+
+ Some mirrors are incomplete and the downloaded file is actually html specifying
+ the webservers error message. Run --clean to purge tgz files within WORKINGDIR.
