Announcements
« 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
#################### 100.0% 35.5 kBps DONE     

verifying download...checksum matches OK
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.

I will look into it, thanks.

Please specify the packages so I can help test.

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.

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.

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.
