/root/pkgsrc-bootstrap/pkgsrc2008Q3.tar.bz2 no such file

Does anyone have experience installing pkgsrc-on-slack who can explain to me what I'm doing wrong here? Following the instructions here:

pkgsrc-on-slack (I haven't had enough posts to give the link)

and first trying

installpkg pkgsrc-bootstrap-200xQy-ARCH-BUILD_DISTRO.tgz

I got a 404 not found error. I then tried:


svn checkout

which worked fine, followed by cd'ing to the
pkgsrc-bootstrap directory and then used

sh pkgsrc-bootstrap.SlackBuild

and got the errors shown in the screenshot.


Anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

404 - bad URL?

Not same dir as due to server chroot.

this is the script, any idea how I can change the script so that it calls to the correct URL?

Upon closer inspection, I realized that the issue was that the most recent version is for 12.2 and the script is searching for files based on version number (I'm using 13.37). That seems to preclude installation for me without doing some script modification well beyond my current skill level.

You may be able to download the file manually and just put it in the correct place for it.
