The release candidates have been updated with the fix mentioned in the release area.

Updates to the x86 dCore release candidates will be mentioned in this thread.

Now there is a boot option "checkfs".  It is not like the one that was before and was dropped, this one simply checks to see if the partition about to be mounted for /opt, /home, and/or TCE directory contains errors, nothing is done or fixed.  If errors are found, it gives you an option to continue at your own risk or follow the recommended reboot and fix the errors with the "base" boot option and the e2fsck command.  Works with the LABEL and UUID option of specifying devices.   The results can be seen in the files /tmp/checkfs.*, such as /tmp/checkfs.sda2, /tmp/checkfs.sdb4, etc.  Simply needed a check for a large number of mounts between fixes or an just an unclean unmount does not constitute file system errors.  Only a true error will result in the "red flag" and an option to reboot.

On my A10 board I have had a few hard resets due to lockup, and ended up seeing the havoc that can be when a corrupted EXT file system was being used in a live session.  This boot code can at least prevent using an unusable file system.

The following release candidates have been updated with this:

dCore-wheezy.gz
dCore-jessie.gz
ub-dCore-trusty.gz
ub-dCore-utopic.gz
ub-dCore-utopic-3.16.6.gz

hi jason,

with the last cut i experienced the looping update-requests again.
perhaps it has something to do that i use dcore with an usbstick?
without permanent /home, /opt or /usr and so on?

i did an update this morning and after the reboot i checked the update-situation again and updatesce replied that there are no additional updates needed.
then in the afternoon, after a further reboot, i checked with updatesce -c -a again and i guess that i got offered the same update-requests that were updated in the morning.
i'm sure that no updates were downloaded during the merge-process.
after the next reboot updatesce told me that no updates are available for the chosen sces.

thank you for your help and patience.

A simple fix seemed to kill two birds with one stone.  I am confident enough to upload another release candidate cut.  The following x86 release candidate dCore's have been updated with the fix.


dCore-wheezy.gz
dCore-jessie.gz
ub-dCore-trusty.gz
ub-dCore-utopic.gz
ub-dCore-utopic-3.16.6.gz
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on December 31, 2014, 06:05:31 PM
I have just added a more reliable checking of startup script md5sums and also added checking of -data.tar.gz extra file updates.  This way, anything at all updated with the package - Debian package, startup script, data.tar.gz files - will call for the package to be updated with a run of updatesce. 

Hold off on testing the last cut and I will upload this sometime tomorrow.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 01, 2015, 07:17:58 PM
Many changes and bugfixes to the updatesce routine.  Now, if a package has a new or changed startup script it is listed as an available update.  And if a new data.tar.gz file is added or the existing one is updated then the package is also listed to be updated.  And if there is a new prebuilt or Debian dependency added to a package or the existing ones have been updated, then that package is also listed for update.

EDIT:  I had updated alsa-utils.deb2sce and firefox-data.tar.gz for testing purposes, those should appear as updates for any SCEs containing them the first time you run updatesce.

This completes the updatesce concept, and now to find the bugs.  The following dCore x86 ports have a new cut in release candidates.

dCore-wheezy.gz
dCore-jessie.gz
ub-dCore-trusty.gz
ub-dCore-utopic.gz
ub-dCore-utopic-3.16.6.gz
Title: Re: Announcements

Release candidates have a new cut per the -s size function issue mentioned in the dCore-wheezy release candidates.

Updated all dCore release candidate x86 ports.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 03, 2015, 05:09:04 PM
Just found a big bug in the update function when it pertains to extensions that make use of other SCEs as deps.  I hope to fix it tonight and upload it in the next day or so. 
Title: Re: Announcements

Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 04, 2015, 06:53:55 PM
Fixed a bug in the dependency routine that uses grep when dealing with the main DEBINX packages file.  Awk has been and is still used for the extra repos as their packages files are small so they have been unaffected.  The issue was the grep routine was pulling in all entries that were "this dep, or that dep, or that dep" where the awk routine just used the first one and ignored the rest, the first match is normally the smallest and most basic, which for our purpose is the desired behavior.  Now grep pulls the needed info for the package at hand from the large DEBINX file, and awk works with the small snippet to correctly parse deps but with the same performance as before if GNU grep is being used.

Release candidate x86 dCores updated:

Are you saying that running updatesce causes those packages to be imported, or when you run importsce those packages then want to be loaded?

importsce will re-import the package every time you run the command "importsce packagename".
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: netnomad on January 11, 2015, 08:01:57 AM
hi jason,

updatesce told me that there are no updates for my meta-packages,
but importsce wants to download additional, probably updates for my packages.

after performing a new importsce for all my packages,
the result are smaller sce-packages in comparison to my recent packages and are broken :(

yes, you are right that importsce re-imports the packages every time i run the command "importsce packagename", but all already downloaded, current packages that need no update are used for the merging process.
updatesce doesn't download new packages.
importsce needs to download new packages from the debian repository.

i'm lucky that i have working backups of my meta-packages, so there is no hurry :)

thank you for your help.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 11, 2015, 08:19:00 AM
Ok, I see. 

Which Debian packages, or data.tar.gz files, or startup scripts is it re-downloading?  Knowing that will help pinpoint the issue.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 11, 2015, 08:54:47 AM
I re-imported my main desktop file, nothing new was downloaded and all worked as expected on reboot.

I will be heading out of town in a couple hours, likely I won't be peeking back in til Wed, so if you post some more info maybe I can fix it today.

Thanks

One thing I noticed is that importsce will create smaller SCEs now than it did before as noted that it now correctly processes the "this package OR that package OR that package, etc" where before all those packages were imported rather than the first one.

How is your system broken?  I noticed that Xprogs had to be imported and loaded or my install was broken upon startx.  But Xprogs was not listed in the file list I re-imported as I lost the old one.

And is anyone else seeing this issue?
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: netnomad on January 12, 2015, 10:18:40 PM
hi jason,

this is a good hint, cause only xorg seems to be broken and perhaps not the whole system.
unfortunately i use already Xprogs in my 100-desktop-jessie-file :(

my main problem is that startx doesn't work anymore.
in this thread you can find my actual file-lists.

do you have another idea?
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: netnomad on January 12, 2015, 11:26:30 PM
hi jason,

if i re-importsce only 000-base-jessie, startx doesn' t work anymore.
Xporgs is in my untouched second file 100-desktop-jessie.

you can find my file-list in this thread.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 13, 2015, 06:38:04 PM
Ok, I imported a system based on your 200-multimedia-jessie which depends on 100-desktop-jessiej which depends on 000-base jessie.  All works like a charm.

I just now see you mean you did not re-import the 100* and 200* SCEs but only the 000-base-jessie.  I am not surprised it that 100* and 200* SCEs that depend on 000* do not work..  As mentioned, there are changes in the dependency routine which result in smaller number of packages being brought in to each SCE.  Though the extra Debian packages originally imported are unneeded by that 000-base-jessie SCE, that results in a dependency being satisfied in an SCE that depends on 000-base-jessie that is no longer there upon a nre-import of 000-base-jessie, and when you re-import 000-base-jessie, those deps are no longer there as not needed by 000-base-jessie but then the 100-desktop-jessie is broken by their absence.

Please re-import in this order and then report back:  000-base-jessie, 100-desktop-jessie, 200-multimedia-jessie.   This change in dependency resolution means that to be accurate, each SCE needs to be re-imported on it's own and then later we can test the update function.  Starting with the SCEs that depend on no other, and then the ones that depend on existing SCEs.

I don't plan on another intrusion in our SCE directory again especially as it affects the release cuts, if so, we just revert to Robert's awk routine once and forever which is slower on the main Packages list but works every time.  But I believe this one is working. 
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: netnomad on January 14, 2015, 12:29:49 PM
hi jason,

now it worked fine.

so, do i understand it right that not all packages should be re-imported in one line...
so at first 000-base-jessie needs to be re-imported,
then the system needs a reboot for the reloading of the 000-base-package,
then the second 100-desktop-jessie can be re-imported based on the freshly loaded 000-base-package,
then after a further reboot 200-multimedie-jessie gets the right updated dependencies for its re-import!?

so in this way i succeeded :-)

thank you for your help.

Great.  I now reread my last post and it appears way more harsh than I meant it, I guess I was banging my head on the keyboard by then trying to find the problem and solution. 

Thanks for the instructions on how you corrected your SCE directory, I will mention in the release thread to refer to here on how to update existing SCE collections.

Also, I will try to make a script that will give a visual tree of dep file contents to make it easier.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 14, 2015, 04:27:36 PM
On second thought, if anyone is having issue on updating their existing SCE directory, please post here and we will work through specifices rather than me spending the time with a script to tell the order of SCEs to update in a given SCE directory.

hi jason,

actually everything seems to work flawless, but i'm not sure whether updatesce really notices all needed updates.

additionaly i don't understand that updatesce -c -a checks huge packages in less then a small part of a second...
000*, 100* and 200* are checked so fast, after libre office it takes some time to check original-modules-3.8.13-tinycore and vbox. this odd behavior let me doubt whether the big packages are really checked.

by the way do we need the md5.txt-files... i delete them to speed up the boot process?!
do you need that md5-files for your updatesce-routine?

thank you for your help.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: netnomad on January 16, 2015, 12:18:27 AM
hi jason,

booting with md5-files has the same effects, but the boot-process takes additional 30s.

Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 16, 2015, 06:09:29 PM
Hi netnomad,

It is the package libkpathsea6.  I re-imported that same 100-desktop-jessie package showing the .15 MB to download though updatesce said no updates, and when importing it yet again and then rebooting it showed 00.00 size to download on a subsequent import.

Lets keep our eye out for any other time that updatesce says no updates yet there is a new deb downloaded upon importing. 

Oh, and I will consider an expert option of not creating md5sum files for the imported SCEs.  Would be simple and not disrupt things, can be put in /etc/sysconfig/sceconfig for persistence.

Evidently there is an issue with the updatesce checking of the 000-base-jessie type of SCEs.  Will check into it.  Most likely the issue with the above mentioned deb that was to be updated.
Title: Re: Announcements

I saw that on a 1.9 GB SCE extension on my usb key, it takes 1 min 36 sec to simply md5sum check it.  Since there can be a performance hit that not everyone wants when using loadsce, I added a boot code "nomd5" that will let loadsce load SCEs without md5sum checking them which can save a bit of time if they are large.  This is an expert option, and assuming there is any trouble when using this that the first thing to do is run an md5sum check on the SCE directory.  I used a boot code since this way importsce will create the proper md5sum file that can later be used to check the integrity of the extension later, and since an option in /etc/sysconfig/sceconfig has to be backed up and restoring the backup occurs after extensions are loaded at boot.

Updated the x86 dCore ports, please test.

hi jason,

the first impressions and heavy testing proved the working updatesce-process :)

good cut, thank you for your work and commitment :)
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 28, 2015, 01:03:55 PM
Some new changes have been uploaded:

SCEs are moved from update during shutdown, for a faster boot.

SCEs are updated in a reverse tree method for better dependency integrity.  Also SCEs in the update directory are used if there during import and update when determining package contents and md5 data.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 28, 2015, 02:54:13 PM
Uploaded a bug fix, changing contents of sce.dep files wheither manually or by re-importing using the -d option will now cause SCEs that depend on the one with the changed .dep file to report needing an update when updatesce is run.

Simply importing the SCEs that depend on the changed one already accounts for any missing or changed entries in dep files.

hi jason,

last cut with "update -c -a" reports for my config:

> Do you want to review the list of packages that have updates available?
> Enter y to view and q to exit reading the package list. (y/N): y

but then no updates are available in the package list!

this is no serious bug, but probably you want to be informed?

thank you for your work.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: netnomad on January 29, 2015, 11:46:21 AM
hi jason,

the last cut starts with "updatesce -a" something like an update-loop :(

i guess that for all packages the dependencies are updated again and again.

thank you for your work and patience.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 29, 2015, 07:49:00 PM
I am having to use a loop to make a reverse tree update process for each sce and it's deps.  The dependencies should not be updated again and again, if so that is a bug.  I will test further.

hi jason,

i assume that this behavior is correct? :

100-desktop-jessie, 200-multimedia-jessie, libreoffice and vbox are based on 000-base-jessie,
so after an update of 000-base-jessie all other packages need to be re-imported?
this happened for me... just one little package in 000-base-jessie needed an update,
so all other packages that are based on this base-packages were re-imported.

after the re-import and the reboot,
"update -a -c" results in following message:

tc@box:~$ updatesce -c -a
debian
#################### 100.0% 0.0 kBps DONE

Do you want to review the list of packages that have updates available?
Enter y to view and q to exit reading the package list. (y/N):

and the list is empty:

Post by: Jason W on February 06, 2015, 10:06:31 AM
Basically that is the desired behavior.  It sounds like overkill, but lets say you specify libtiff-tools as a package in the list of 000-base-jessie, and it depends on liblzma5.  If dependencies change of libtiff-tools and it no longer depends on liblzma5, then if 100-desktop-jessie has a package that depends on liblzma5 and it was originally satisfied by that SCE depending on 000-base-jessie, after the update 100-desktop-jessie is now broken.  Dependencies don't often change but the sometimes do especially when a Debian release is still in the "testing" stage. 
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: netnomad on February 06, 2015, 10:47:31 AM
Basically that is the desired behavior.

i understand, but nevertheless the "updatesce -a -c" reports a required update and then the list for updates is empty :-(
basically the intended behavior seems to be fullfilled.

thank you for your help.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on February 06, 2015, 06:11:59 PM
Updated new release candidates of the x86 ports dealing with the recursive update function.  Please test.

Netnomad - I may add a "Needs update due to updatd changes in packagename.sce." entry in /tmp/updateavailable for SCEs that need no update of their packages themselves but their dependencies do.

good idea.
i tested your last cut, there is still a request for an update although the update-list is empty.
it's more a cosmetic issue ;-)

New utility sce-remove.  Removes chosen SCEs and any SCEs that depend on them upon reboot as to keep integrity of the system.  Uploaded new cuts for the x86 dCore ports.
Title: Re: Announcements

Anyone here knows that I always listen to feedback and cooperate with whoever who posts here.
All ideas brought up here have been implemented unless there is a good reason not to.

don't take my following notes to serious!!!

actually importsce could be renamed sce-import,
removesce could be named sce-remove,
and updatesce could be called sce-update. ;-)

we could confuse everybody but i would prefer to autocomplete "sce-" in the bash,
... and in the end we could count beans ;-)

life is a compromise, but it should be a good one!

thank you for doing such a great job!!!

may i remember you to the new kernel?
you know i'm looking forward for suspend-to-ram...
... so we will be able to spoil less energy in the future ;-)

keep on hacking, we appreciate your work!

netnomad - you have a good point as then everything would start with sce and easy to find via shell autocomplete.

Uploaded a correction in the x86 dCores - the default values in /etc/sysconfig/sceconfig set at FALSE.

hi jason,

tried your last cut!

i guess the change of sce-"commands" is something for the long run.

sce-import
sce-update
sce-remove

what about
sce-load
and
sce-unload?

evolution needs some time...
... and sometimes it's the repitition of something from the past:
like tce-load or tce-unload and so on ;-)
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: frimical on February 24, 2015, 11:22:18 AM
hello everybody,

I agree totally with the suggestions of 'netnomad' for naming tools/scripts etc...
Actually it's an Object-Oriented approach: Object-ActionOnObject-Details (I use personnally since a long time ago, as a steady 'golden rule' to standarize naming. It proved to be very practical to: follow, maintain and re-use).
So many times I had to redo the naming to fit my way of work. Now if it's implemented from the start, I just have to thank you for this too.
And of course, thank you for all the good work you did and do.

Regards.

New cut with the sce-* naming convention.  The below is a list of the SCE tools changes which brings dCore more in line with the tce-* naming convention of user called tools:

loadsce is now sce-load
updatesce is now sce-update
importsce is now sce-import

Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on March 10, 2015, 04:55:42 PM
Migration to the new kernel is underway, dCore-jessie.gz and vmlinuz-jessie are uploaded with 3.16.6 and are working here as expected.  The old kernel is available under dCore-jessie-3.8.13.gz and vmlinuz-jessie-3.8.13 just in case for now in release candidates.

I plan to finish moving the other x86 dCore ports to the new kernel tonight, just wanted to give a heads up that the move is underway.  Be sure and import the new kernel modules, kernel-all-3.16.6-tinycore is the meta package that covers all the bases.

Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on March 10, 2015, 05:09:22 PM
Ok, kernel migration is complete.

Please download the new *.gz image files and the new vmlinuz* and test. 

Note:  Please import the needed 3.16.6 kernel modules and place them in your sceboot.lst before the upgrade as that will prevent the Xorg lockup that may happen if you import them while running in an Xorg session with no X kernel modules already loaded.  Loading Xorg modules when an Xorg session is running can cause issue in any case.

hi jason,

after heavy testing i can confirm that it's a very stable, fine cut.

there are only some little issues with one slitlist-app in fluxbox:
wmcpuload has sometimes problems with the font for the cpuload in percent.
it happens that the numbers are replaced with just black flat areas :(
sometimes the windows-buttons in the panel get black, but after restarting fluxbox everything is restored.
in the right-click-root-menue-window the marked menue-items are marked in black, too.

the attached image shows you on the left side the damaged slit-appearance
and on the right side the correct fonts...

the rest is just great, especially the s2ram-feature.

thank you for your great work.

hi curaga,

i guess that you are right.
but please consider that the previous cut with the same packages had no issues,
so perhaps there could be a bug in the kernel or the modules?
this strange behavior started with the new kernel and its modules.

thank you for your help.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on March 13, 2015, 06:45:17 PM
Thanks Curaga for the info on that.

netnomad - the Icewm "start" button is blank missing it's pixmap in dCore-trusty and dCore-jessie when the graphics kernel modules are loaded.  Yet all is well in dCore-wheezy and ub-dCore-utopic when the same modules are loaded from the same kernel.  As well as the graphics show in dCore-trusty and dCore-jessie when the kernel modules are not loaded.  But this is just with the Intel video cards I have, an Nvidia card worked in all cases.

Since the graphics work in dCore-wheezy and ub-dCore-utopic with kernel modules loaded and with the intel card, then that seems to confirm that it is an Xorg issue.

Ok, and I notice that the ndiswrapper module does not work with 3.16.6-tinycore either when it worked when all is the same but the new kernel.  I will test some with standard Core and see if it shows the same behavior at least with ndiswrapper. 
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on March 27, 2015, 03:17:51 PM
I can't see any fluxbox errors on Core6, and ndiswrapper.tcz works with my usb wireless device that does not work in dCore with the new kernel.  Ndiswrapper is the same version in dCore-jessie as it is in Core6.

I need to make sure my porting of the kernel module extensions was sound before we do anything else. 
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on March 28, 2015, 05:32:02 PM
netnomad -
I see what you are talking about with fluxbox, and as it affects one window manager even if it is kernel related I think we need to live with it.

As for ndiswrapper, the kernel module required rebuilding against the few custom dCore kernel build changes that are required to work with or more factually work around systemd.  I have tested it with dCore-wheezy and dCore-jessie so it should work with all of the x86 dCore ports. 

ndiswrapper-modules-3.16.6-tinycore has been updated, please update and test.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on July 09, 2015, 06:03:05 PM
All x86 dCore ports have been updated with changes to allow an internal security repo inclusion that is in preference to the main DEBINX but below preference to the /opt/debextra entries.  Prebuilt packages as always have first priotiry. 

Also, now copying symlinks in packages "as is" to the filesystem instead of creating symlinks to those symlinks and the confusion that can result.

Many code changes, so in release_candidates until proven stable.

Post by: Jason W on September 26, 2015, 04:06:49 AM
Curaga, Juanito - I will wait until changes are released in ondemand and such before porting them here.

JLS - on those changes I am taking one thing at a time, right now fixing existing problems.  And I did not adjust tc-config in git as I don't want to go "back and forth" if this fix in RC does not work.  And base file adjustments are not in git anyway, git is just for the dCore scripts.

But I will update git as I am confident the little adjustment will work.

New RC for x86 dCore ports posted that put the DEBINX Packages files in /etc/sysconfig/tcedir/import/debinx for less clutter of the tcedir.
Title: Re: Announcements

Uploaded new cut that uses debug boot code for troubleshooting extension loading during boot or runtim.

All dCore x86 ports updated.
Title: Re: Announcements

Uploaded new cut so sce-update recognizes the NONINTERACTIVE entry in sceconfig.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on October 28, 2015, 02:09:42 PM
Uploaded new cut that uses the "sce-import -v" option to view packages that will be contained in the SCE.  This way the default behavior is to need to use a flag to see this kind of stuff, and by default the "noninteractive" mode is used.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: jls on October 29, 2015, 03:53:40 AM
Hi
I added
VIEWPKGS=TRUE
in sceconfig but sce-import asks if I want to see the pkg list
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on October 31, 2015, 05:31:59 AM
Ok, I put in the new option so it would bring up the (y/n) like before if you wanted to see the pkg list.   I will upload another cut with the (y/n) taken out and instead going straight to the more/less output where the package list is viewed, where the q for quit exits it and that would take out the needless answer of y to view.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: jls on October 31, 2015, 06:19:53 AM
Hi. Having a sceconfig file bring to me the necessity of the option and the opposite in the command line. For example if I have VIEWPKG=TRUE and sometimes I don't want it there is the need to add a command line option for this like there is -v for the opposite. Thanks
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on October 31, 2015, 04:02:26 PM
If I understand correctly, then we would also need to create the same behavior for every command line switch to negate the OPTION=TRUE in sceconfig, and we already are running out of letters of the alphabet that at least closely resemble what the switch represents.   This would hamper the future addition of new switches.

What I can do is have the -n 'noninteractive' option negate everything as in making sce-import finish with no interaction.  If we sometimes do but sometimes don't want an option to be used, then the command line is the place to specify it.  Sceconfig is for what we always want to happen. 
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on November 01, 2015, 11:39:28 AM
Here is an idea I think is along the lines of what you are talking about.  Instead of a competing switch for each option, perhaps having a -z switch for zero options that is similar to the "base norestore" boot code, canceling any other options for a fast import import session if one does not want their usual size,ram,etc functions.

Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: jls on November 01, 2015, 01:29:30 PM
Hi. Another idea is an option that doesn't consider sceconfig but can anyway be combined with other switches.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on November 02, 2015, 11:34:02 AM
Ok, that does make sense.  I will look into the scope of changes it would require.
Title: Re: Announcements

New cut with added "-z" option in sce-import and sce-update to ignore /etc/sysconfig/sceconfig and just use current command line options.  Also, using the dependency SCEs found in /updates in the SCE directory when they exist to use as dependencies to import against.
Title: Re: Announcements

Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on November 26, 2015, 01:58:02 PM
Updated all ports to allow for a /tmp/KEEPDOC file that allows for a per package keeping of /usr/share/doc and /usr/share/man, pysolfc is added by default as it does not work with /usr/share/doc deleted during import.  The file can be edited and backed up.

Also, sce-update bugs were fixed.  Please test.
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on November 27, 2015, 08:54:12 AM
Updated x86 ports so sce-load automatically runs the postist scripts of libglib2.0-0, libgtk2.0-0, and libgtk-3-0 if those files exist.  This should save time in troubleshooting packages that appear broken due to a simple lack of those commands being run after extension loading.

Don't know if i should post on an Announcement thread, if not could a moderator please start a new topic.

jls_legalize,  version -c  and  version -r  only request download permission if a different version is available. I didn't know if Jason would accept the script change so didn't change the --help file yet. Hopefully it's working as expected as i only have one dCore install to test on (dCore-jessie).

If you are already running the latest RC then  version -r  will just output 'You are running..., the latest release candidate'. If so then you're not running the latest stable release, so running  version -c  should output:
Code: [Select]
To download latest release press (y)es, to exit press (q)uit. To check for
the latest release candidate instead, exit and run 'version -r':

Please let me know if it works, thanks.

Hi netnomad.

Jason addressed the Enter key download, works well.

The import double-spacing was one of my additions, blame it on old eyes! Completed imports today, see what you mean especially when 'Merging ...'. Personally i like double spacing at the beginning of the import when the indexes are updated, mirror is confirmed and SCE to be imported is printed, but removing the 'Merging...' doublespaces would be good. Hopefully this is a fair compromise:

So it's good that a DEBINX diff now isn't created until a user wants to see it, makes  sce-update -a  faster for those that don't want to view it, the diff doesn't catch all. Here's what works, as before if anyone has any grep ideas please enlighten, thanks.

sce-update:
Code: [Select]
else
echo " "
echo "Press Enter to proceed with update(s), (v)iew DEBINX diff, Ctrl-C aborts,"
echo -n "to view diff use page up/down or spacebar and enter (q)uit when done: "
read ans
echo " "
if [ "$ans" == "v" ] || [ "$ans" == "V" ]; then
echo "Obtaining diff of new and old package data..."
#cat OLDDEBINX | grep -E 'Package|MD5sum' > /tmp/OLDDEBINXDIFF
#cat NEWDEBINX | grep -E 'Package|MD5sum' > /tmp/NEWDEBINXDIFF
diff "$DEBINXDIR"/OLDDEBINX "$DEBINXDIR"/NEWDEBINX > /tmp/debinx.diff
#diff /tmp/OLDDEBINXDIFF /tmp/NEWDEBINXDIFF > /tmp/debinx.diff
less /tmp/debinx.diff
#rm /tmp/OLDDEBINXDIFF
#rm /tmp/NEWDEBINXDIFF
rm /tmp/debinx.diff
echo " "
echo -n "Do you wish to proceed with updates, enter (y)es or (n)o: "
read ans
echo " "
if [ "$ans" == "y" ] || [ "$ans" == "Y" ]; then
:
else
echo "Exiting.."
exit 0
fi

Of course, the NEWDEBINX/OLDDEBINX also includes the prebuilt packges and also deb2sce startup scripts as well as -data.tar.gz files.  No biggie, I was asked to review the changes and approved them and on testing seemed good.  But that is why I tested with md5sum and opted for the full diff of those files as to any changes, startup script, Debian package, prebuilt package, data files.  So when the md5sum of the NEWDEBINX/OLDDEBINX files differed, the diff could be shown and an update decision made.  Thanks for the streamlining, I am all about making things quicker.  But maybe there is a way to diff those files quicker with the above kept in mind.  I will also look into it.  And thanks for making the diff only created when the user wants to view it.   
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 26, 2016, 07:01:38 AM
I have an idea that may allow for a clean diff viewing, by separating out the Packages files from the prebuilt, startup script, and data file entries. 
Title: Re: Announcements
Post by: Jason W on January 26, 2016, 05:54:47 PM
Ok, I see what you did now, very fast diff creation.  Perhaps by separating out from the main NEWDEBINX the prebuilt, -data.tar.gz, and startup script md5sum files we can list what packages have been changed and if it was prebuilt, -data, or startup script.  I will ponder it.   Uploaded your fix posted here, also some cosmetic changes sent in today.

New RC.  Added the ability to purge unwanted locales that are not listed in a config file during sce-import.  The file is /etc/sysconfig/locale.nopurge, similar in name to the Debian one.  You can enter 1 or 10 or whatever number of locales to preserve during an import session. 

Also, a new config file that is a list of files or dirs to be purged from the resulting SCE.  It is /etc/sysconfig/sce.purge.  Place the names of all files or dirs that are not wanted and sce-import will delete them before creating the final SCE.  Wildcards should be ok, as in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libLLVM* should remove /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libLLVM-3.4.so.1 and/or  /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libLLVM-3.5.so.1 if both or either exist.

And the select menu has been improved, with those that are a loop of choices - sce-update, sce-remove, debGetSceDep - the quit function and selection has been removed, now Enter without a selection is the way to proceed.

The backup feature is disabled by default, enable via /etc/sysconfig/sceconfig. It creates a date stamped /sce/backup/ directory named after the extension and backs up the old SCE (*.sce, *.md5.txt, *.dep, *.lst) during re-import. Manually revert to original SCE if an update causes a non-functional boot or other breakage. For example, RC bug, broken Debian/Ubuntu package or corrupt file system. May also be used to revert to the original SCE if user wants to avoid specific Debian/Ubuntu software changes. As SCE breakage is rare, the backup system generally results in less manual tinkering within the /sce/ directory proper (ie. manually creating backups or saving old *.lst files).

No bells and whistles at this time, user responsible:
* Enable backup feature via sceconfig.
* Ensuring adequate drive freespace.
* Manually purge backup items as desired.
* Manually revert to backed up SCEs as needed.

Updates from nitram:

Modified /usr/bin/ondemand:
- Removed xmessage popup "Neither freedesktop file nor "$APPNAME" executable exists..."
- Replaced with system beep, should closely mimic TC7 OnDemand behaviour
- System beep is default in TC/dCore, i like but to disable either:
  - Add 'blacklist=pcspkr' to boot loader stanza
  - Add 'rmmod pcspkr' to /opt/bootlocal.sh


Modified /usr/bin/sce-load:
- Fixed nomd5 boot code bug
- Correct loading echo using 'nomd5' boot code
- Added /tmp/ cleanup function

dCore x86 release candidate ports have been updated with the below changes:

Now not deleting specified list file if the -l option is used when the answer is no when prompted if you want to use that list file.  Instead just deleting the file placeholder in /tmp and then importing as if no list file was used.  But if the answer is no to do you want to use a list file whether specified or already existing in the SCE directory, then upon completion of import an existing .lst file belonging to the package in the SCE directory will be deleted as it is no longer valid.  An existing specified list file outside the SCE directory may want to be used in future import sessions even if not used in the current one.

If a package name being imported only exists in the PKGADDDEP dependency list on our server but is not available in Debian/Ubuntu or in our prebuilt section the user is now informed of that and prompted to continue.  Several packages that don't exist in a particular dCore port I have imported and spent a little time wondering why the app was not available after loading the SCE.  virtualbox in dCore-stretch as well as firefox in dCore-wheezy when only iceweasel was available are a couple of examples.

dCore x86 release candidate ports have been updated with the below changes:

sce-load now uses Busybox cp as at was found with dCore-wheezy some SCEs were broken in a minimal environment as the cp binary from coreutils was in some cases copied to the filesystem before its supporting libraries were copied, resulting in a broken cp command and  incomplete copy of the SCE.   This did not seem to happen with other dCore x86 ports.

Also, the -KERNEL variable is now being used for dependencies regarding kernel module packages.  This is like standard Core behavior and helps with some packages to just work on intsall.

dCore x86 release candidate ports have been updated with the below changes:

Now if a dependency is added or removed on our server for a package, it will cause the SCE to be updated during sce-update.  The previous change simply was that an added or removed dependency triggered an update check.  Also, more relevent information about package updates in regards to added or removed deps is included in /tmp/updateavailable during an sce-update session.  The Recommends and Suggests option of sce-import has been done away with.  Trimming those fields from the DEBINX data leaves the files roughly 5% to 10% smaller.  This will increase performance during sce-import and sce-update.
