I thought it all was working well, but now I get an error with installing packages:
Certificate verification failed.

What is wrong? I thought it worked all right earlier...

That error appears when either the date on your Zaurus is wrong, or the repository you're using has currently certification issues. The latter is solved by temporarily switching the repository's URL from https to http, or by changing repository:

The repositories can be changed from the default by copying the /usr/share/xbps.d/00-repository-main.conf file to /etc/xbps.d/ directory and editing the repository for example:
Code: [Select]
repository=http://alpha.us.repo.voidlinux.org/currenthttps://tutel.me/c/unix/questions/491888/vo...fication+failed

Hi,

just to clarify, the official Void repos do not have ARMv5tel packages and are not of use for Zaurus users.

If you received a certificate error for the Voidz repo that is hosted on OESF, this should be resolved now.
To set back your repo to the default Voidz one use this command*

Code: [Select]
echo 'repository=https://www.oesf.org/repository/feeds/voidlinux/testing/build8' > /etc/xbps.d/00-repository-main.confIf there is some more demand, I may update the voidz repository again this year, but so far the voidz usage has been quite low unfortunately.

Cheers,
Greguu
