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 ;-)

keep on hacking :-) , thank you for your work.

Ok, new cut for the x86 dCores updated in release candidates.  Hopefully all is well now, I fixed a few problem I found.

With no reports of issues and the update routine working for me, I will copy this release candidate into release in a few days.

hi jason,

the last cut showed no problems for me, but i had not any update-request, too.
i just wonder about the possibilitiy whether needed updates are still noticed?
did anyone experience any update with this cut?

thank you for all your contributions.

Ok, I just updated the Packages files on the server, maybe there are updates now.

There is no hurry, we can wait and make sure all is well before moving to release.

hi jason,

now all requested updates were flawless re-imported, no loop and no unneeded update-requests.
after the update-process updatesce reports no further unneeded update-requests.
nice work, stable cut!

now it would be exciting to get the new kernel, what do you think about it?

thank you for your patience.

Hi netnomad,

I will try to get the Virtualbox kernel modules built on Core6 and the new kernel, then I will update the kernel for the x86 dCores.

With no issues I will make a release tonight and then start on the sce-remove utility as to not hold up the release for further features that will need time and testing.

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.

sce-remove now named removesce.  There is a -k option to keep .lst and .dep files.  Please test and give feedback.

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!

Thanks, the kernel I was waiting to get the virtualbox modules built, but if I can't in the near future I will update anyway.
