Bug in APP while removing an application
« on: February 03, 2023, 12:04:50 PM »
Hello,

I found a nasty bug in APP.
I installed dillo but I decided to remove it as it's too limited for my need.

I used APP, and mark Dillo for removal : unfortunately, it removed ALL the dependencies without checking if they are used elsewhere ... and among them, it was fltk-1.3.

Consequently, my desktop doesn't work anymore.

The solution was obvious, but it's very dangerous.

Bye

Laurent

Hi destroyedlolo
Well, you did not state which version of TC and which architecture
you are running.

I tried this under TC13 x86:
Installed dillo onboot.
Marked dillo for removal.
    Apps listed it would remove:
                 ca-certificates, dejavu-fonts-ttf, dillo-beta, and wget
rebooted, desktop came up, fltk-1.3 was still present.

I could see this happening if all of the following were true:
  You are running Xvesa
  You are missing the  .dep  file for your window manager
  And fltk-1.3.tcz was included onboot

Oups, yes, sorry : it's TC 13.1, x86 version (32bits).

It's a stock install, I didn't modify anything so the environment is unchanged in term of GUI.

I'm getting an MD5 mismatch error for fltk-1.3.tcz.

I assume this thread is the reason fltk was updated...

Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -wi fltk-1.3.tcz
Downloading: fltk-1.3.tcz
Connecting to repo.tinycorelinux.net (128.127.66.77:80)
wget: server returned error: HTTP/1.1 416 Requested Range Not Satisfiable

Error on fltk-1.3.tcz

$ cd /mnt/vda1/tce/optional/
$ ls -la flt*
-rw-rw-r--    1 tc       staff       466944 Feb 23 19:12 fltk-1.3.tcz
-rw-rw-r--    1 tc       staff           56 Feb 23 19:11 fltk-1.3.tcz.dep
-rw-rw-r--    1 tc       staff           47 Feb 23 19:12 fltk-1.3.tcz.md5.txt

$ md5sum -c fltk-1.3.tcz.md5.txt
fltk-1.3.tcz: FAILED

Based on a successful unsquash I get that the extension itself is ok.

Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -wi squashfs-tools.tcz
$ sudo unsquashfs fltk-1.3.tcz
$ sudo unsquashfs fltk-1.3.tcz

$ md5sum fltk-1.3.tcz
973f5025dae57ed7d201d91d44545833  fltk-1.3.tcz

$ cat fltk-1.3.tcz.md5.txt
ac00b0c19605f03990ac121584e7ea8e  fltk-1.3.tcz

As a workaround I created a new md5 hash.
Code: [Select]
$ md5sum fltk-1.3.tcz > fltk-1.3.tcz.md5.txt

$ tce-load -i fltk-1.3.tcz
fltk-1.3.tcz: OK

With this the desktop works again.
