apt-get update failed Expected SolydXK, got SolydXK-8

Postby sxphild » 17 Aug 2017 20:42

I was trying to install the Mozilla-vlc-plugin but it doesn't appear in
Synaptic. Following instructions from ccm.net, I used apt-get update.
And got this error message at the end:

"W: Conflicting distribution: http://repository.solydxk.com solydxk InRelease (expected solydxk but got solydxk-8)"

It also said to make sure that "maintained by the Free Software community" is checked. " in the
repositories, but I got the same message there, after it tried an update.

What do I do now? I needed to write an app to control VLC from Firefox.

Thanks in advance...

Which plugin are you talking about? The vlc web plugin is already installed in SolydXK - at least on my systems. It's the debian package browser-plugin-vlc in synaptic. Or do you mean something else?

Please post the terminal output of :

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxzr
dpkg -l *vlc*


Which instructions did you follow on ccm.net - this site doesn't look really trustworthy as far as technical expertise is concerned and the only instructions I could find were for ubuntu. not debian. SolydXK is NOT ubuntu! (Even if the apt commands are the same, the package names often are not ...)

Which exact commands lead to the error message? I don't think the error is related to the plugin, but could be another problem.

Hi ilu,

it seems to show that *a* browser-plugin is installed, (does not specify vlc )
but in Firefox, it does not show up in the addons or extension list.

Yes, you are right it is Ubuntu...I had tried Synaptic first, but the plugin does not show up..

All I did was type apt-get update - it failed there. With the error message

[Reading package lists... Done
W: Conflicting distribution: http://repository.solydxk.com solydxk InRelease (expected solydxk but got solydxk-8)]

First, let's do something about

Code: Select all

W: Conflicting distribution: http://repository.solydxk.com solydxk InRelease (expected solydxk but got solydxk-8)]

Open fstab:

Code: Select all

apt sources

and replace

Code: Select all

deb http://repository.solydxk.com solydxk main upstream import
with

Code: Select all

deb http://repository.solydxk.com solydxk-8 main upstream import

and update:

Code: Select all

apt update

Arjen,

Thanks so much for the first step.
I have done that. Also called apt-get upgrade

I did apt policy browser-plugin-vlc
and it said it was installed.

So I went to Firefox, opened the add-on/plugins
section - vlc plugin was not there.
I searched on vlc - nothing close to that came up.

Now this is on my old Pentium 4 32-bit machine running solydX-201607

At home I have a Dell dual-core laptop running SolydX-201701,
and there , as of this morning, it is working. Synaptic shows it installed,
and Firefox also shows it in the plugins section. I was also
able to construct a rudimentary webpage with the plugin , and it works!

But I would like to get this working on my office PC ( the 32-bit ).
Any hope do you think?

I guess I could haul my home machine to work every day, but it would be
more convenient if I did not have to.

Thanks again - your help is much appreciated ( ilu's too ).

I suspect that on the working machine you use Firefox ESR and the system where it's not working you're using the latest Firefox, am I correct?

If that's the case, I can be brief: Mozilla dropped support for NPAPI plugins as from version 52. You can read the details here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/npapi-plugins
You can simply install Firefox ESR with the plugin and you're done...for a while at least.

If on the other hand you're using Firefox ESR on both machines I don't have a clue why there is a difference between these machines.

Arjen,

Right on the money!

You were quite right. Firefox-ESR at home, Firefox 53 at work.
I uninstalled work version, and installed the ESR, and
voila - the plugin shows up!!

Thank you so much.

You're welcome!
Remember that Firefox ESR will support the plugin until early 2018. After that, you will have to find another way of doing what you need to do.
