There can only be one entry after the mirror and distro, main or non-free.  Both can't be entered. 

I will take a look at importupdatecheck next once things are working well in import, the update routine should not be working but I can use the same logic that is used in import to find the packages and md5sum.

Posted an update to dCore.gz and an updated iso dCore-5.13.12.19.iso  to fix a bug in the md5 checking routine during import.  Please download and test:

hi jason w,

i tested the last cut for a couple of occasions and everything works smooth and fine.

one little proposal that could be useful after an importupdatecheck:
could you clean up the results or the tmp-files... in the moment when i change entries in my repos under /opt/debextra the same result occurs...
i guess some tmp-files are left somewhere...
do you think it is very much effort to show in which repos updates are found?
with this information it's easier to decide whether an update is reasonable.

thank you for your help and your development.

Ok, I will add a cleanup for the /tmp/debinx.* files as they are re-downloaded every import session, that detail slipped by.  And I will do the same for importupdatecheck.   

I will update importupdatecheck and let it list which mirror an update is found.

Mirror listing on updated packages during importupdatecheck now in place.

Also a bugfix in deb2sce in dCore.gz and the iso.  Please re-download and test.

I don't see that, and never have.   What is the output of the command

cat /tmp/.importpkgtype

That file is supposed to be deleted if existing and the start and also at the end.  Are you sure you have the latest updated importupdatecheck?

An observation - if you add mirrors in /opt/debextra, and those mirrors have their own version of a package that is available in wheezy main, and the package was originally imported from wheezy, then that package will show up as an available update.  The extra mirrors take precedence over the main one as that is the desired behavior both in importing and update checking.

So to be accurate during an update check you need to keep the same mirror files that you import the sce with.  But if you don't, or add mirrors that contain different versions of packages within the extension before an update check, then those packages will be listed as having available updates though the package in the repo you imported it from may have not been updated.

Example, ssh originally imported from wheezy and then the backport mirror was added before the check:

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ importupdatecheck ssh
#################### 100.0% 0.0 kBps DONE

Reposted with ability to fetch Packages.gz as well as Packages.bz2, some mirrors only have the .gz.

Reposted dCore.gz and related iso to release_candidates directory, this time with a removing of an unneeded md5sum file creation that was used in the previous "secure" import mode.  The md5 checking of existing debs is now done within deb2sce during each import session.

Please help test, and I hope to make this cut a formal release in the coming days for both x86 and armv7 ports.  I have been using and testing armv7 now that my hardware is in place, and all is working as expected.
