Title: Wicd blocked package?
Post by: sm8ps on December 14, 2015, 07:15:25 AM
This is what I get upon ''sce-import wicd'' on dCore-trusty with the basic wireless extension imported:
"wicd is a blocked package.  Exiting.."
. Never seen this before. What is a blocked package in this context anyways?
. Why would Wicd be blocked from having it installed?

Things like gnome, kde, and wicd are blocked because they don't work as is and I have not found the startup script activity needed that will make them work.  If you wish to test it you can remove it from being blocked by editing /tmp/PKGEXCLUDELIST.

Thanks for clarifying! Still tinkering with Network-Manager...  :)

Information added to the wiki (http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/dcore:extensions#Blocked packages).

wicd-gtk is working for me now on dCore-wily, probably due to the changes here in dCore dependency resolution.  So now wicd and related packages are unblocked.  Please test and report success or issues.
