Claire???

Post by Jockewhbg » 15 Oct 2008, 02:52

I read about rTorrent and Squeezecenter on the forum and uploaded versions in "claire"?? What is claire? How would I use it to test the above mentioned clients. Could someone please send me in the right direction if there is somewhere to read more about this.

Regards

Jocke

Claire is our unstable/testing repository, which we use to test packages before we think they are stable enough to release. The relevant data should be visible in /etc/apt/sources.list

carl: when you write "The relevant data should be visible in /etc/apt/sources.list", what does that mean????

If I open that file on B2 there are three rows (stable, upstream and etch).

There is nothing about unstable, squeezecenter or rtorrents. Please explain a bit more, thanks.

Cheers,
Hammer

Here´s how I did it

Post by Jockewhbg » 25 Oct 2008, 05:58

I changed the following in sources.list

# The stable BUBBA|TWO repository, is in the suite "stable".
#deb http://update.excito.org/ marielle main

# The upstream packages used in BUBBA|TWO, is in the suite "upstream_stable".
#deb http://update.excito.org/ upstream_etch main

# The unstable BUBBA|TWO repository, is in the suite "unstable".
deb http://update.excito.org/ claire main

# The upstream packages used in unstable BUBBA|TWO, is in the suite "upstream_stable_forclaire".
deb http://update.excito.org/ upstream_etch_forclaire main

I can´t say if it was necessary to change the upstream packages to unstable but there are for certain others who can answer that. I´m not even certain that this is correct at all but it worked for me.

Then I wrote "apt-get update" to get the list of packages in the unstable repository. You can write "apt-cache search torrent" to get a lits of all torrent related packages. Then you can write "apt-cache show rtorrent" to get relevant information of the rTorrent packages that are available. I managed to install the rTorrent with "apt-get install rtorrent" and it´s working. I´m a total newbie on Linux but there are good sites which explains a lot. Use google.

I tried to install the squeezecenter but that failed completely. Probably due to lack of experience from my side. Don´t forget to change the sources.list to it´s original state and write "apt-get update" again.

Regards

Jocke

Hi Hammer,

If you do not see the more than three lines of text in that file, you need to upgrade your system first, this file was updated in the last software release.

If already logged in using ssh, run as root:

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade.

I can also recommend rebooting the system after this since there has been a kernel upgrade as well and that does not "take" until the unit is rebooted.
After the upgrade there will be a lot more text in the "sources.list" file.

/PA, Excito

Hi pa.

No, after update there is still only three rows in the file.

Have you manually installed any software?

If so, it is possible that the webb-UI update does not know what to do with the installed software and the upgrade will not complete.

If possible, run as root:

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

If there are any problems this will show on the commandline.

Hi again.

That's exactly what I did. (Ran these commands as root.)

Got this error:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
php5-cgi: Depends: php5-common (= 5.2.0-8+etch11) but 5.2.0-8+etch13 is installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then i tried using "apt-get -f install".
Got this:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can you post the content of your "/etc/apt/sources.list" file?

I got the same error message as Hammer described, a conflict between some php package and the bubba-backend package.

I solved it by forcing an install of one of the packages using dpkg followed by an "apt-get dist-upgrade".
I don't remember if I forced the bubba-backend or the php package, though.

For some reason the FastCGI process didn't start after that, leaving the admin web inaccessible. I had to start it manually.

After that everything seems to run as it should....

deb http://update.excito.org/ stable main
deb http://update.excito.org/ upstream_etch main

deb http://ftp.se.debian.org/debian etch main


That's all.

That is strange, that conflict shouldn't exist in stable, only in unstable/claire at the moment;

Hammer: that's the really old sources.list fil.

So it seems several people have this problem.

Will the bright-eyed lads at Excito do something about it?

Cheers,
Hammer
