Old distrib info in /etc & lsb_release

Postby koczis » 29 Oct 2019 13:09

Hello All,

this is just a minor question - nothing important.

I recently started considering upgrading my SolydX/Debian from 9 to 10.
After a quick query through my sys info files I found that my initial SolydX-8 installation (2016) is still there.
Shouldn't it be already many times updated by "deb https://repository.solydxk.com solydxk-9" ?


Best regards,
/koczis

You have to be more specific: What exactly is still there? Which sys info files? Of course you can have several installations side-by-side and they won't vanish on their own. But that's probably not what you meant ...

No, I have a sole installation.
I mean e.g. everything mentioned here: https://linuxconfig.org/check-what-debi ... nux-system
I can give exact values when I'm back at home.

You can see Debian version updated, but SolydX still at 8.

BUT ...wait! I probably know what's going on. I have weird troubles with 'solydx-system-adjustments-8' package.

When I try installing 'solydx-system-adjustments-9' or removing 'solydx-system-adjustments-8' I keep getting a 'dpkg-divert' error telling about some "do" filename not being absolute. I'd like to paste the output, but 1st I need to force 'apt' talk English - again weird because "apt --help" talks English, whereas "apt install" talks Polish.
BTW: 'solydx-system-adjustments-8' seems to depend solely on 'solydxk-mozilla-evolvere-icon-theme', whereas 'solydx-system-adjustments-9' on whole bunch of stuff, which isn't exactly necessary for me and some of it I explicitly dislike, like 'pulseaudio'. I remember directly uninstalling this one - could 'apt' then revert back to 'solydx-system-adjustments-8'?

All in all - it seems now, that the severity of this matter increased significantly... at least for me ;)

That's a past update gone (partly) wrong. solydx-system-adjustments-8 should not be there. We've had threads about this kind of mixup but strangely I can't find them - actually Arjen is more qualified to help you with it. Please wait with updating until he has time to assist you in fixing this.

Preceding terminal commands with env LC_ALL=C should turn the output into english.

Here's a user who had a similar problem with solydk-system-adjustments-8.
You only need to replace solydk with solydx:

@ilu: I was probably going to throw something similar into my console's env, but thanks for confirming it.
@Arjen: you did it on purpose, right? :? ;)

But Ok, I went all the way back to grandma Peng's topic and have following afterthoughts:
- grandma Peng appears to be more versed in Debian packaging than me :oops: :roll:
- reading 4 pages worth of adventures of busy impatient Christian hoplite leaves me with goose bumps and spiky hair :o :shock: :?:
- they have some common troubles together, but mine seems different - the mentioned "do filename not being absolute"
(please wait for console output)

...TIMEO DANAOS...

Nevertheless, some packaging hacks'n'slashes are described there and I'm certainly going to try them. At least will try to pinpoint the abusing command in the package.

Thanks for your help, will get back to you after I have something - looks like I'll need a couple of hours by mine laptop.

Εδώ είναι Σπάρτη!!! :mrgreen:

Ye know? I wanted to paste the English error log, but it appears to be... impossible.
So, here's the Google translation:

Code: Select all

(I edited it slightly)

BUT after setting LC_ALL=C in my env everything went just great!:

I assume the last warning isn't that much important and that in overall there's a localization/i18n bug in 'solydx-system-adjustments-8'.
Perhaps in other too?
