Title: dCore-wheezy
Post by: Jason W on December 04, 2014, 09:25:35 AM
Uploaded a new cut with a rebuilt busybox to handle the data.tar.lzma files that are in some Debian packages without the need to install full versions of tar and lzma.

It seems to be working here.

What package is it not working for?  Is it made from a file list?  And it is using other SCEs as dependencies?

And is the -r ram option chosen?

seamonkey-mozillabuild
libelementary-bin

-r is chosen because I'm on a usb fat32 formatted

Ok, I will be able to look into it in the next few days.

They both report sizes for me, screenshots attached. 

I am on ub-dCore-trusty now and don't have dCore-wheezy set up now, but it is the same exact import routine.

Ok, it is not libelementary-bin, but e19-plain that is being imported with libelementary-bin used as a dependency.  That is valuable information to know. 

But I still can't reproduce an obvious error, my screenshot is attached.  It appears you are out of disk space, if that is the case that can cause errors in and of itself.

I see what may be the issue in the calculating of free hard drive space.  Hopefully can fix soon.

A very simple fix, thanks for reporting this.

dCore ports updated per the Announcements thread.

The util-linux version of mount has been added to all dCore ports to improve boot times.  However, the util-linux version of mount in dCore-wheezy means that only 8 loop mounts are allowed.  Which means a maximum of 8 SCEs can be loaded during a session, including any existing loop mounts.  Users of dCore-wheezy are advised to either accept this limitation or to migrate to a more current dCore port.

There is an easy solution to the issue of loop mounts being limited to 8 in dCore-wheezy.  Just add to the boot line the below entry

loop.max_loop=400

to have 400 available loop mounts.  The kernel itself has unlimited loops as of version 2.6.24, the problem is with Debian Wheezy's version of mount as it does not create a new loop device if one is not available.  I have used that boot line entry to have more than 8 SCEs mounted with Wheezy's mount package installed.

dCore-wheezy has been updated due to an update in libc6.

dCore-wheezy has been updated due to an update in libc6 and other packages with files in the base system.

The Debian Wheezy repo has been removed from http://ftp.us.debian.org/ and it's mirrors, it now resides in the archive located at http://archive.debian.org/.  dCore-wheezy has been updated in release and release candidates with the /opt/debmirror file containing 'http://archive.debian.org/debian' so dCore-wheezy can still import packages.  Either download the updated dCore-wheezy in release/release_candidates or place the below in your /opt/debmirror file and back it up.
