To anyone reading this it is a good idea to test puppy package manager after the upgrade, as it uses wget for part of the process of downloading packages from the net.

Has anybody successfully updated the wget in Slacko 5.6? I tried the pet in first post ("tested in slacko 5.7 only") and it breaks my PPM in Slacko5.6 (some issue with looking for a perl lib)

5.6 draws from Slack-14, correct? I'm guessing this *patched version* should be in your PPM..

Yes GG, addressed >> http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=806172#806172

Sorry for being VERY late, but I recently noticed a small issue in slacko 5.7-nonpae puppy. I installed the pet, and before S/D checked that it did install, which did happen. Unfortunately, on reboot, there was one missing dependency

libpcre.so.1

Not to worry, a rename during the copy of the symlink seems to have solved.

NOTE if you have installed the pet run wget --version
If it still indicates 1.14 then do the proceedure below
disregarding "BEFORE...."

BEFORE applying the wget upgrade

1.) Open Rox and navigate to /usr/lib and find the symlink named libpcre.so

2.) Right-Click and select COPY

3.) EDIT the name to libpcre.so.1

4.) OK


Not sure if its a "me" problem or general. Posted JIC.

Hi Semme - I'm confused about those updates - they look like they are v 1.14 which I already had prior to updating to v1.16

Turns out 8Geee has put his finger on the perl issue that is stopping v1.16 wget running on my system:

Thanks 8Geee - solved my problem too (on Slacko 5.6)

Because current binaries are usually paired with newer libs, upgrades aren't always practical. Hence, we patch.

Think I'd steer you wrong? Of course not! It's these *packagers* you've gotta watch out for..

Aaahh, ok, I think I understand now - whack! whack! slap, slap, faceplant, slap! Look for patches not necessarily upgrades. Whack! Whack!
Right - I've got it now.
Thx!
