PostPosted: Sun 24 Sep 2017, 18:34    Post subject: Start from what is already available..  

foxpup , scottman is starting from zero something that yet exists...
but i would not stop you. I will keep away and just look.
The idea to load missing dependencies better than to list them is my goal too.
# gramps
/usr/bin/gramps: line 28: /usr/bin/python: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/gramps: line 28: exec: /usr/bin/python: cannot execute: No such file or directory
#
Gslapt is another tool , Josejp2424 comes back to it with Shiba Inu (32 and 64 bits) based on Slackware. But still missing libs to load manually.

┌─[root][01:42 AM][~]
└─[Shiba_Inu][$] gramps
Gdk, Gtk or Pango typelib not installed.
Install Gnome Introspection, and pygobject version 3.3.2 or later.
Install then instrospection data for Gdk, Gtk and Pango

No I'm not.. You don't understand this thread.

Installed it to Slacko and just tried a few of the examples above. No harm was done to man or beast. Got no suggestions so far, but the important thing is it working pretty well.
I've been contemplating doing some petbuild scripts, but have done nothing about this yet.

Thanks for testing mate..

The dep checking and getting routines - the find_deps() and get_deps() funcs - could (should?) be replaced
with something faster and more efficient (Pkg is a bit slower than PetGet to resolve deps)..

Luckily, changing the dependency handling in Pkg means basically replacing those two funcs Smile


EDIT: While I'm here, the list_deps() func is also involved... And it needs to be fixed to exclude builtins
from the list of deps it returns (currently, builtins are listed as deps, then skipped by other funcs...
but they should be excluded by list_deps() to begin with.. unless -F option was given)..

This is one of the first changes I plan to do.. Should make dep resolution faster and more reliable.
(and will pave the way for the added feature of optionally adding/removing builtins too, if -F was given)..


And about build scripts ... Well, you are one of the more experienced and advanced compilers
on this forum (you helped me many times with compiling and with kernel stuff) .. So, maybe just one or two that can
act as examples of how to build particular pkgs (PETs that need a source patch, for example, or whatever takes ur fancy) ...

.. to show people how's it's done..

Just a thought, obvs...

PostPosted: Mon 25 Sep 2017, 22:19    Post subject: Pkg 1.9.3  

As above, fixes in dependency resolution..

Changelog for 1.9.3
Code:
- fixed default settings in rc file:
   # fix prevent correct dep search in first run
   # updated, DEPSEARCH='list_all_pkg_names' by default
   
- fixes in dep resolution:
   # much faster, less looping, checks fewer deps, more reliable:
   # now filtering out installed pkgs all in one go, in find_deps() and list_deps()
   # so `pkg --list-deps PKGNAME` now lists missing deps, not all deps.
   # the same for `pkg --pkg-status PKGNAME` .. only lists missing deps

PostPosted: Mon 02 Oct 2017, 19:12    Post subject: Pkg 1.9.6  

Changelog for 1.9.6

Code:
1.9.6
- updated Gpkgdialog to 0.2
   # fixed: updated to work with latest Pkg:
      - fixed pkg listings (available, installed, build scripts)
      - added support for petbuild as well as buildpet
      - fixes and updates for most functions
      - cleaned up code, added comments
- updated Pkgdialog to 0.5
   # fixed: skip first run Pkg message
- Cleanup: remove function testing stuff /usr/sbin/pkg


This mostly fixes the frontends:

- Pkgdialog (ncurses menu, works with or without X)
- Gpkgdialog (gtkdialog GUI, requires X, gtkdialog, Xdialog)

Gpkgdialog:


Note, these frontends are not meant to be the 'main' way of using Pkg - the command line is still the best way to use Pkg.

I removed some function testing stuff from Pkg, as those funcs won't change much, and I kept the tests if I need them..

I will keep testing it on Slacko for a bit, until I am sure it's pretty solid, then I can more easily make it work with other Pups..
This should, by then, be mostly a matter of adding new repo entries to ~/.pkg/sources-all, plus some small fixes..

Once Pkg is pretty reliable in a variety of recent Pups, I will get onto adding some of the more useful features I have planned.

Thanks Smile

I *think* it's getting fairly close to stable on my Slacko 6.9.x ...
Prob not at all on anything else yet..

I will test on Stretch, Xenial and Zesty pups soon .. I keep saying that, but I will ..
My Windows HD (with all my "important" stuff) died on me (again) so I'm sorting that first..

BTW.. If anyone cares,

I had a really good think about contrib repos, and decided that Git LFS is probably the
best way to go.. It allows storing large binary files in GitHub Smile

Also, here's the main goals at this point:

- bug fixes until all funcs work as expected on Slacko (pretty much there I think)
- same as above on Ubuntu and Debian pups
- make compatible with Woofy (and update Woofy to 0.92 in the process)
- make compatible with Woof build process (so you can use pkg to easily add/remove pkgs during a woof build)
- add some super useful/cool features as listed below:

-F option .. will force (re)install/uninstall/etc, including builtins

pkg --rootfs /path/to/dir # choose a new root filesystem to install pkgs into (or something!)

pkg --repo2git /path/to/dir # create a contrib repo from a dir full of PETs

pkg --install my-app.sfs # register loaded SFS files with package manager like normal pkgs

pkg --extract PKGNAME # unpack a pkg, but do nowt else .. EDIT: Done, see next post

pkg --blacklist PKGNAME # exclude pkg from searches, dep list etc

pkg --rdep PKGNAME # list pkgs that depend on PKGNAME

pkg --cpan PKG # wrapper for CPAN (adds CPAN modules as installed pkgs to PetGet/Pkg)

pkg --pip PKG # wrapper for PIP (adds Python modules as installed pkgs to PetGet/Pkg)

and others ...

etc

EDIT: Any commands anyone can dream up that you'd like, let me know while this is
still in the suggestions thread Wink

I was using the latest Lupu when I downloaded 1.9.10, so thought I'd try in on that.
Altered pkgrc like so:
Code:
WORKDIR=/root/pkg
REPONAME=lucid
EX=pet
REPOFILE=Packages-puppy-lucid-official
REPOURL1=http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-lucid/

then ran pkg --update-sources

I think most of the ubuntu links are down now but the pet URLs are not working - there is an extra bit inserted eg:

/pet_packages-lucid/pet-packages-lcuid/
/pet_packages-lucid/pet-packages-lucid/

There are just empty text files getting downloaded, but are being registered as proper packages (try to install again, and it says they are already installed).

The output above is quite verbose as originally I had left the slacko stuff in REPOFALLBACKS. When I took that out, the output was very minimal (but obviously less useful for testing purposes).

Hi Keef, thanks for testing ... Pkg must be frustratingly crap at the mo, I'm sure...

Problem 1 is a typo Embarassed

Line 2703 is missing a $ sign, and needs to be changed from:

Code:
cp "${CURDIR}/${PKGNAME}.deb" "{CURDIR}/${PKGNAME}/${PKGNAME}.deb"

to
Code:
cp "${CURDIR}/${PKGNAME}.deb" "${CURDIR}/${PKGNAME}/${PKGNAME}.deb"


I will fix it so that if line 2703 fails (stuff not copied) Pkg will exit with error at that point.


Problem 2: I just learned the Packages-puppy-lucid-official repo file contains subdirs (field 7) ..
So, you can remove the "pet_packages-lucid/" bit from the Lucid URLs in ~/.pkg/sources-all .. Something like:

Code:
lucid|pet|Packages-puppy-lucid-official|http://ftp.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/|http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/|||lucid-main lucid-universe lucid-multiverse noarch common dpup quirky wary53x wary51x akita puppy5 puppy4 puppy3 puppy2

I also found the cause of "/pet-packages-lcuid" ... it's a typo in the repo file itself.. Beaver is literally the only package with that typo,, Good find!


Problem 3: You *shouldn't* need to manually change pkgrc .. just run

Code:
pkg --update-sources
pkg --repo lucid


Then you should be good to go...

If the fixes above still don't work, the problem may be incorrect/outdated URLs or repo file names in sources-all (I added them blind)..
but if the debs download to /root/pkg, they should be fine..


Problem 4: I've no idea why Firefox would be a dep of nano .. Can't be right!! Rolling Eyes
Stranger still, the Lucid-main repo file (Packages-ubuntu-lucid-main) I just downloaded doesn't even have nano in it...

What a mess, eh?? ... better boot Lucid (or Lupu??? what's the difference?) and see!

Also I will update it so it checks archive integrity after download - so Pkg won't attempt an install if not a valid pkg/archive file..

No it's not a mess. Works very well in Slacko, and I imagine most of the lucid repos have been archived off somewhere.
That Firefox dependency for Beaver was interesting though.

Yes, I just dived in without reading properly.
