Title: dCore-zesty
Post by: Jason W on May 31, 2017, 12:19:20 PM
dCore-zesty is now uploaded to the Release Candidate area.  It will replace dCore-yakkety as the non LTS Ubuntu based dCore and remain as a Release Candidate.  Ubuntu Yakkety is scheduled for an end of life in July and dCore-yakkety will be retired then as well. 

The kernel is 4.8.17-tinycore that was built on dCore-stretch and shares the same kernel modules.

Hi
I've successfully upgraded to dCore-zesty :D
Thank you Jason.
Still using enlightenment from the niko2040 ppa.
Ondemand system-config-printer makes X crash.
Enlightenment for zesty was compiled with Wayland support
Is it possible to try it?

Please give the exact debextra repo entry and the package name for enlightenment that you are using so I can test.  I tried the nokia repo with enlightenment and sce-import provided the standard Ubuntu enlightenment package.  Thanks.

Hi,
Thanks for the info, I have now used that PPA to install enlightenment and the other needed packages.  I have reproduced an install with only the following: enlightenment, xorg-all, kernel-all-4.8.17-tinycore, terminology, and system-config-printer.  In the enlightment DE, I have found no crashes with system-config-printer loaded via ondemand or otherwise with either xterm or termilology.  I did find some needed deps to be added to prevent warnings upon starting system-config-printer in a somewhat minimal environment:  libnotify4, at-spi2-core, dbus-x11.  I tried to reproduce the crash, but did realize some further deps are needed for the package.  Thanks for reporting.

Doesn't
sudo tce-setup

No.

What is the list of SCEs you have installed and loaded.  And if made from list file, their contents.  Thanks

Thanks, I will test the same setup tonight or by tomorrow.

Using the PPA you mentioned as well as the set of SCEs you specified, neither "sudo tce-setup" or "system-config-printer" commands cause any issue from either xterm or terminology.  Personal packages naturally can be a potential issue.  Do you use these same exact custom packages in other dCore ports you run and without error?

Has your SCE directory been updated lately?  I am sure you have, but just verifying. 

Also, are there any other PPAs you are using in dCore-zesty?

Thanks

Thanks.

I have created /opt/debextra entries with all the repos you mentioned in:

http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,21105.msg132015.html#msg132015

And re-imported all my SCEs (sce-update -an) with the above repos, and the below SCEs being created as shown in the below post and loaded on boot:

http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,21105.msg132009.html#msg132009

And I did not have X crash on "sudo tce-setup" nor "system-config-printer".

Are you using the personal packages that you mentioned on other dCore ports and are they working there?   I am curious as to what is causing the issue.


Thanks for testing and reporting.

Hi
booting with "norestore" boot code makes sce-load system-config-printer-gnome.sce working properly without crashing X

Hi
found it!
I removed a personally created file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
and now it works!

dCore-zesty has been updated in the release candidate area due to an update in libc6.

Ubuntu Zesty will reach it's end of life on January 13.  Users of dCore-zesty are advised to migrate to another dCore port.  The dCore-zesty image files will be removed from release candidates at that time, but current users with dCore-zesty installations will still be supported with debinx package data.

dCore-zesty has been removed from release candidates due to Ubuntu end of life.

Post by: Jason W on January 29, 2018, 05:40:53 PM
The Ubuntu package archive of the Zesty release has been removed from the Ubuntu servers and current dCore-zesty installs are unable to update existing packages or install new ones.

Have seen that you con use this repo of old releases of Ubuntu, but this repo doesn't update.

http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/
Title: Re: dCore-zesty
Post by: Jason W on January 30, 2018, 07:40:26 AM
Thanks!  I did try to get our server to rsync the debinx data, but I was not able to.  If it worked, then that mirror location you mentioned could be put in /opt/debmirror and dCore-zesty or whichever old version could have the Ubuntu repo available from their old release archive.  I will look further to see if their old releases is an rsync mirror.

U welcome.
Here some more info:

The old releases archive of Ubuntu does not have an rsync server, but I am using a wget command on our server that only fetches files if the ones on their server are newer than ours.  And since Zesty is frozen in old releases, it should never  use bandwidth on our server beyond the first fetching of the Packages files when we run our routine to get the debinx data.  Otherwise, wgetting the entire Packages.xz each time we fetch debinx data would not be acceptable, especially for a deprecated release. 

On the user's end, there are two files that need to exist with the listed contents to make use of the Ubuntu old releases archive:

/opt/debmirror:
Code: [Select]
http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu
 

/opt/securitymirror:
Code: [Select]
http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu

The two above files should be created and backed up.  Then dCore-zesty users can install packages from the Ubuntu Zesty archive.  The prebuilt section is available with no adjustments needed. 

Thanks for the idea.  I will do this for dCore-zesty, and perhaps others in the future.

dCore-zesty has been reinstated in the release candidates area, and the entries /opt/debmirror and /opt/securitymirror are included in the base with the before mentioned old releases repos so sce-import works by default.
