e.g. from pcmanfm Slackbuild I wanted to download


After lots of lots of redirect wget gave up.

Trying the homepage got me into an ants nest where stupid me signed up
for a newsletter in the 50th floor below ground but I still could not
get the source.

Google finally found it at:


Again lots of lots of redirect and finally I get it from


The redirects for both URLs looked the same. That is why I dont think
there is a need to change the download in the SlackBuild.

Horses tend to drop their manure everywhere but I remember there
were quite a lot of downloads that did not succeed. pcmanfm actually was
the first one I finally made to download after all obstacles.

md5sum matched. pcmanfm-1.3.1-i586-1_SBo.tgz created.

and it runs on Slackware Current 32 Bit.

Sorry for the rant but I had to vent because if I had blown my top like
SpaceX did with Starship MK 1, I would look really silly :)
