dCore Import Debian Packages to Mountable SCE extensions => dCore X86 => Release => Topic started by: Jason W on December 25, 2014, 01:30:52 PM

Title: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on December 25, 2014, 01:30:52 PM
I think one thread is a good place to announce updates to the dCore x86 ports since they all get the same changes each time, there is really no need ot have to say the same thing 4 times.

A bug in importsce options has been fixed, as well as the use of a blocked packages list.  The list is found at /tmp/PKGEXCLUDELIST.  It is only downloaded if there is not already one in place, so the list can be edited and backed up in the case that one wants to test blocked packages.  If a package has a blocked package as one of it's dependencies, the blocked package will not be imported and a warning is issued giving an option to cancel or proceed anyway. 

The files in release candidates have also been updated with this fix.

To start with, wicd, gnome, kde, and unity are blocked since they do not work 'out of the box' and no fix has been found.

hi jason,

the last cut shows some problems for me... perhaps there are some misunderstandings, too!?

what do you think about that following commands?
do i use them in the right way?

f.e.
updatesce -c -a
should show all update-able packages?
in the last week i had the feeling that sometimes some updates were not reported,
for such a long time no updates were requested...
now i think that more packages are reported than need updates (i didn't proof that yet)

importsce -s -d -u <package-name>
-u should update the debinx files,
but i get the message that in my tce-directory this file is missing.

tc@box:~$ importsce -s -d -u alltray
PKGEXCLUDELIST
Using the -d option.
Using the -s option.
Using the -u option.
 
debian

used 10725376 local, fetched 0
Using the repo http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian debian jessie main
grep: /mnt/sdb2/tce/debinx*: No such file or directory
 
Do you want to import alltray? (y/N):

with the last cut the importsce breaks without any merging...

with the older cut my command line gives me following reply and i have to call the package-name a second time...
importsce -s -d -u <package-name>
Using the -d option.
Using the -s option.
Using the -u option.
basename: option requires an argument -- 's'
Try 'basename --help' for more information.
 
Enter starting characters of package sought:
after entering the package-name a second time the merging works.

thank you for your help and all your hints.

As far as updates, Jessie is seeing a flurry of package updates this near to release.  Updatesce depends on our server syncing the Packages files, and that is run about once a day.  If I miss a day, then 2 days will go my and nothing available to update.  But normally, it is synced at least once a day, sometimes several times since any file changes on our server will mean running a sync.

The issue you saw will alltray was a critical bug introduced in the latest release. 

the grep "file not found" command is purely cosmetic.

I have fixed both along with armv7 support added in, and since there was a critical bug I have updated all the dCore x86 ports in release and release_candidates.

hi jason,

thank you for your reply, i've downloaded and use your last cut.

something is difficult to understand for me:
i checked my system with
updatesce -c -a
and the report told me that a couple of packages need an update.

after a flawless update and a reboot with this updated packages,
the following update-check reports the same packages that they need an update.

is this the common behavior of updatesce?

thank you for your help.

If an SCE is loaded and an update on it is run, another update without rebooting will show the same available updates as the last.  A reboot should then load the updated SCE and show no available updates. 

I thought I would mention in case that was the case.

Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: netnomad on December 27, 2014, 02:44:18 AM
hi jason,

i guess the problem is solved in the last cut.

before the update-requests remained even after a reboot and a successful updated sce.

thank you for your help.

Updated the x86 dCore ports per the latest changes made in release candidates.

Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 21, 2015, 12:09:43 PM
Updated the release cuts of the x86 dCore ports to the latest stable release candidate.  Refer to the release candidate thread for actual changes.

Also, ub-dCore-utopic.gz is released, and it has the 3.16.6 kernel.  After a time period of a released 3.16.6, dCore-jessie will move to this kernel as well.

hi jason,

this cut is so stable, so flawless that it's a dream, a really stable basement...
... on the other side it's sooo boring stable ;-)

i'm looking forward testing new cuts!
do you give us new material, especially the new kernel that you announced recently for the ubuntu-line?

thank you for your great work and commitment.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 28, 2015, 01:01:31 PM
I have good news, look in release_candidates, hopefully at least something has been broken (until it is moved to release, that is).

Kernel I am waiting to have Virtualbox modules built, hopefully soon.

hi jason,

heavy testing and i did not notice any bug.

great work!

... but you know, sometimes bugfree stable software is not very exciting and can be really boring ;-)

so i'm looking forward for the new kernel.

keep on hacking.

only something cosmetic, there is a typo:

Title: Re: Announcements

dCore x86 ports have been updated with the same release in release and release_candidates as this typo fix should require no testing or potential breakage.

hi jason,

x86 dCore ports have been updated to the latest release candidate.  Changes include:

3.16.6 kernel
update-alternatives bugfix in base.
Renaming of the SCE tools to fit TCE standard.

Please remember to use the new vmlinuz image available.  Also, it is best to import the needed 3.16.6 kernel modules before updating the base.

Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Onyarian on March 14, 2015, 06:00:24 AM
Hi Jason,

This is only to say you that the migration to 3.16.6 with the update of my base.sce was flawless.
- First changing the base.sce.lst with the respective 3.16.6 versions files and then updating this base.sce
- Continuing with changing to the new ub-dCore-trusty.gz and wmlinuz-trusty 3.16.6 versions in the boot directory
- Rebooting... and...  voila!.

Tomorrow I update all the rest .sce who have the base.sce as dependency

Thanks for your work!

Post by: netnomad on March 14, 2015, 09:25:08 AM
hi jason,

the kernel-update seems to be so bug-less that we could start to look to more or less cosmetic details ;-)

never mind, but in the panel there is still the starter for importsce that is broken.

thank you for your work.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on March 14, 2015, 10:03:00 AM
I am glad to hear the kernel upgrade is simple and working as expected.

Oh, I see the importsce menu item.  I will fix that.

Hi Jason,

in the new cut there is persistence of "loadsce" not "sce-load" in /usr/bin/ondemand line 99

Quote
if [ "$EXECITEM" ]; then
   TYPE="${1##*.}"
   unset FROMWHERE
   COMMAND="loadsce"
   INSTALLED=/usr/local/tce.installed

Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: netnomad on June 01, 2015, 08:03:23 AM
hi jason,

you told us that sce-debpurge can remove not only .deb packages,
but also tar.gz prebuilt ones, and -data.tar.gz data files.
perhaps it could make sense to name your tool sce-purge?

thank you for your work
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on June 01, 2015, 01:05:26 PM
But it doesn't remove SCEs.  :-)  Only packages that make them.  I can't think of another name for it, as >98% of what it deals with are .debs.

I just downloaded http://tinycorelinux.net/dCore/x86/release/ub-dCore-trusty/ub-dCore-trusty.gz and I haven't uploaded any changes since you downloaded it.  I see that it has /usr/bin/sce-debpurge.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: sm8ps on June 28, 2015, 11:56:33 AM
Many thanks for double-checking! I must admit that I did overlooked something obvious, indeed, as I just found out. Short story: I re-booted the machine and -- ta-taa -- there was a shiny new sce-debpurge.
Long story (to keep those entertained that still are reading): I had  been so fond of my shiny new suspend and hibernate buttons (http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:migrating_from_flwm_to_lxde#menu_entries_and_panel_buttons_for_suspending_to_ram_or_disk) that I completely forgot to really re-boot into the new initrd.
Sorry for the noise and thanks again for your support! BTW, I have not only been busy suspending on and off but have a final bulk of writing for the wiki about handling extensions in the works.
Cheers!
