Scripts to download and convert debian packages
« on: March 31, 2015, 02:32:59 AM »
Hi, Everyone, I made two scripts to download and convert debian packages, may be useful for all of us.
Usage: put them into tce/ondemand, and run "dpm pick" to pick out a fastest mirror,
now you can use "dpm -wi" to get the packages that interest you :)

 mirror    Pick out a fastest mirror, specify a string to match: dpm mirror chin
 update  Update packages database
 config  Config ld.so.conf and dpm.rc(TCEDIR/dpkg)
 upgrade  Update all packages
 clean    Delete deb files downloaded
 link/link clear link to tce/optional or clear
 show    Show information of packages
  -i   Load local extension
  -c   Copy to file system when installing. If installed, copy again
  -f   Overwrite when installing. If installed, copy again
  -w   Download deb files and make tcz extension
  -d   Show depends

Hi aswjh.

Trying out v1.1 - thanks for your handiwork.

Mirror, search, config, dependencies, installation, loading worked well.

Like that it keeps it's extensions seperate from Tiny Core but this requires more storage. Leafpad and efax-gtk did not fit in my 100MB parition freespace and failed to install, even when deleting deb files after tcz conversion. Just installed nano, required ~55 MB drive space after deleting the .deb files, most of which is the packages database. Guess installing additional software won't be as much an issue as the base gets fleshed out. Nano works great. Hoping to test this out on heavier software, such as qpdfview.

Is it possible to specify /dpkg creation into a different paritition?

Is there an issue with extension conflict? Example, running both a Tiny Core and dpm extension at the same time that both rely on their own versions of ncurses.

Kind of a hybrid between Tiny Core and dCore, not sure yet where it fits...maybe have your cake and eat it too :)

Can use:  TCEDIR="/mnt/sdaxx/yyy" dpm -w xxx
or: export TCEDIR="/mnt/sdaxx/yyy"

Yes, errors may be occurred.

Some packages need option "-c", for example, binutils,gcc,gcc-5,g++-5,python,perl-base,audacious.
Good luck :)

Hi aswjh,

I linked dpkg/ to a roomier partition so all is good, thanks for providing options.

You may want to include notification to load squashfs-tools before installing through dpm to avoid errors/having to restart.

Test installed games-minesweeper and it did not provide a working executable in /bin, unsure why.

Test installed qpdfview, it gave numerous errors and would not run. Clipped for your review.

Any other suggestions please let me know - thanks.

Code: [Select]
tc@box:/tmp$ dpm -wi qpdfview

Just wanted to leave a more positive note. efax-gtk installed with several errors but runs. Have not yet tested with a fax modem, although everything looks good. This would have taken me days to figure out how to build myself. So i guess hit or miss. If you have any other troubleshooting suggestions regarding qpdfview please let me know.

libcups.so is in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu,
add /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu into /etc/ld.so.conf, then sudo ldconfig,
or set LD_LIBRARY_PATH,
or run: dpm config

Thanks aswjh, 'dpm config' did the trick. Can't believe it, now running latest qpdfview v0.4.14 for tabbed-pdf on TC 6  :)

There's no way i could have built this myself - QT5 and a mile-long list of dependencies - your skills are awesomeness!
