Setting Queue for sbopkg failed [SOLVED ]

Recently I have installed Slackware 13.37 .

I tried to setup the queue file . But, whenever, whatever package I tried to install , I got,

" No valid queuefile or package name given. Exiting."

I looked into queue file and gave one package name [ google earth ] which exist in the file. For that too, I got the error message.

So far, can not make out with google.

I cannot able to figure out, where I did mistake .

    It sounds like a name issue, since google earth is listeded as google-easrth.
    Have you attempted to use the sbopkg gui tool to pre-select the packages from the search function and building a queue that way?

    after read your reply, I tried. All options from the sbopkg menu, throws different errors, which are ultimately saying that, their content is empty. No, sbo files installed , like that

    Thanks Matthew.

    Have you used the command "sbopkg -r" to start the sync the repo? and if all else fails you can remove the configuration files and application then reinstall.

    Great .
    just now I tried and now, things started to WORK. Thanks matt.

    Actually , after I had gone through the man page of sbopkg , to know more about it. There , the flag " -r ", just stated

    " ``Rsync'' the local repository with SBo and quit. "

    So, I was not much into that flag.

    can you please explain , what problem I had, and how this option, resolved this , if time permits ?

    I am not sure about my problem, but I guess, some wrong addition/installation of queue file.
    And I guess, it resolved this by, removing all queue files and setup a new queue file.

    The r flag tells sbopkg to use rsyn to make a mirror of all slackbuilds from Slabkbuilds.org, so it is used to get the initial list and to update your scripts so that you can receive the updates for the apps.
