People still using DMO - modify your sources before updating! NOW!

Postby ilu » 19 Jun 2017 17:14

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dmo.list
Replace "stable" with "jessie".

Thanks for the hint kurotsugi - https://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=6916

to avoid confusion, update here refers to normal daily updates. every DMO user basicly should take a look his repo list **NOW**

It is the repository at deb-multimedia.org.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. Just what packages make up the DMO contribution to Solydx. The post title implies that some may not use DMO products.

As the name implies, it contains packages relating to multimedia. You will find programs that are not in the Debian or SolydXK repos and in some cases you will find later versions of programs that are in the repos such as ffmpeg.

And yes, everyone does not use DMO. It is not added to sources.list by default. It must be added yourself.

I you don't do much in the way of video/audio editing and such, you probably don't need DMO.

Consider me thoroughly confused, Albert - you were the one that brought this problem to our attention here: https://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=6916. Thank you, by the way. And now this question?

Historically, the deb-multimedia.org repo was part of SolydXK in 2013 to provide additional audio/video software, but was removed later on. If you somehow missed the removal, don't worry about it. Everything works fine as long as you replace that nasty "stable" with "jessie".

I don't understand what you are confused about, ilu. What I came to the forum with was a problem for which I had no solution. Kurotsugi solved that for me by telling me to replace "stable" with "jessie" in dmo.lst before you entered the conversation. This original problem was followed by the discovery that Synaptic and Program Manager could no longer access the repository. These were not problems that I created. The inaccessibility of the repository by two programs remains a problem, and does not "work fine."

I am sorry that you consider my question regarding DMO inappropriate. I am merely a user and not embedded in the internals of Solydxk as you are. So, yes, I sometimes ask stupid questions. Please forgive.

I said nothing about anything being inappropriate. Sorry if you understood it that way. I just said I was confused because you were asking abut DMO here although you have the repostitory active yourself so I thought you would know why you have it ...

I said, DMO as a repo works fine. Those two programs have a problem that has nothing to do with DMO. Anyway, I will try to hunt down the problem. Edit: Actually it's the same problem https://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.ph ... 29&p=65611

I think your sources should be ok now. But to be sure, please print the output of "inxi -r" again.

I made no conscious choice one way or the other about the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list nor /etc/apt/sources.list.d. They are just as they were sent to me via Update Manager, with the exception, of course, of "jessie" replacing "stable" in dmo.list.
I run Audicity on occasion so I prefer to leave dmo alone until I know what removing it will impact.

Code: Select all

$ ~
$ inxi -r
Repos:     Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list
           deb http://repository.solydxk.com/ solydxk-8 main upstream import

I didn't get those errors that you got invoking synaptic. Actually, synaptic loads and works fine except when selecting Synaptic->Settings->Repositories; In which case the repository window is not loaded. FWIW, if I change each of the four sources in sources.list from http to https, and then invoke synaptic and select Synaptic->Settings->Repositories I actually get a Repository window opened. Of course, then I get the dreaded exclamation mark in the Update Manager icon warning of changed sources. I then back out, as I don't know what to do next.

BTW, do you know what Synaptic->Settings->Set_Internal->Option does? I can't find anything in Synaptic->Help

Your sources are ok. I am quite sure that the synaptic problem has nothing to do with your sources.. I got the error when selecting Synaptic->Settings->Repositories. You might try that. But let's move the synaptic bug discussion to the other thread.

Synaptic should works fine. Either with the update manager. Http vs https doesn't really matter as long as you have apt-transport-https. I can't reproduce the issue on my system so I can't help much on this issue. Personally I would suggest to leave this issue unsolved until we upgraded our system to stretch. We can still use the text editor to maintain the repo list and since it's not reproducible, it might somehow solved after the upgrade.

@albert : dmo contain ffmpeg so audacity functionality will more or less affected. Stretch has it's own ffmpeg but dmo have lot of more extras. Due to what happened to your system earlier I highly suggest to not remove dmo at least until you moved to stretch.

Kurotsugi: The synaptic bug is reproducible on SolydX8 and has its own thread here: https://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.ph ... 29&p=65611. Please continue the discussion there.

Albert: Until the bug gets fixed, change your sources via editor. Thanks again for reporting the issue.
