Sbopkg used to work on my computer untill the network admin started to make a compulsory for the user to use proxy before connecting to the Internet. So, when I tried to sync to slackbuilds, I'm getting these errors:
root@meh:~# sbopkg -r Syncing with the remote repository into /var/lib/sbopkg/SBo/13.1. rsync: failed to connect to slackbuilds.org: Connection timed out (110) rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(122) [Receiver=3.0.7] Rsync reported a socket error which may be due to a problem with the LINK value in sbopkg.conf. (The repo's LINK is currently set to: slackbuilds.org::slackbuilds/13.1). Please check your settings and try again later.
