sce-import glitches: dependencies and recommended packages
« on: September 22, 2017, 08:06:51 AM »
I have imported the package lxde-common with dependencies on xorg-all and graphics-4.2.9-tinycore before.

Issueing ''sce-import -d lxde-common'' now asks me if I want to keep the '.dep'-file or not. Entering "no" does continue with suggesting to use the old dependencies.

Issueing ''sce-import -Rv lxde-common'' does not show "lxpanel" among the included packages. However, according to https://packages.ubuntu.com/en/xenial/lxde-common it should.

This all happens on dCore-xenial:2017.07.27.17.50 in a virtual machine.

Hi sm8ps
Recommends and Suggests are no more supported as you can read on the following link:
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,17871.msg133617.html#msg133617
But in your version it should work.

Actually, with the Recommends and Suggests fields being removed from the DEBINX files, those options will no longer work with any present or past dCore release or release candidate.

Thanks, JLS and Jason for explaining the situation! I have not kept track of the forum for quite a while.

Regarding the dependencies, I have found the cause as well. I had mis-understood the instructions stating that I should "enter (n)o" in the sense that I entered "no" instead of "n". This may cause some trouble for some users (as experience tells ...) but is no big deal.

I will add "no" to mean no just like "n" does now in these type of dialogues.

Thanks! That would make my hunt for improbable errors and mistakes meaningful.  :)
