It looks like a rather quiet upgrade :)
I PM'd Santa to ask if he expects any problems.

we have a last minute kernel upgrade

and that block is

as far as i can see it's reading from lsb-release (but not only??)

Hey Zerozero and Schoelje,

Is Catalyst 13.4 compatible with the 3.10.7 kernel?
Best Regards

@zerozero
I've been experimenting by creating the attached files in /usr/share/python-apt/templates/ (SolydK64 only)
And adapting /etc/lsb-release:

Code: Select all

DISTRIB_ID=solydxk
DISTRIB_RELEASE=1
DISTRIB_CODENAME=solydk64
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="SolydXK"
But still "no worky".

Schoelje
this is breaking my head.
(and not knowing python, only reading some doesn't help :( )
what i think is that aptsources is matching info from more thn one file (not only lsb-release); which ones? and why it errors?

It seems that the maintainers of apt-sources only had Ubuntu and Debian pure in mind.
I couldn't find a manual or howto for derivative distributions.

I think that DISTRIB_CODENAME from lsb-release is compared to Suite from line 3 of template.info (SolydXK.info in our case).

Currently

Code: Select all

DISTRIB_CODENAME=solydk64
-------------------
Suite: solydxk
Edit: Formatting.
Edit2:

Here's how I reached that conclusion
1) downloaded lmde, booted in vm
2) lsb_release -a returns a codename of debian
3) /user/share/python-apt/templates/LinuxMint.info, line 3
Suite=debian
4) the only other mention of debian in the file is under description as LinuxMint Debian
5) thus, codename == suite, and they're not the same in the solydxk.info template and lsb-release, causing the python code to return Error: No Distribution Template Found
Best Regards

then how and why lmde has it fixed with this latest update?
there's something else here and i think Eldre is in the right path

I'd like to test it. ZZ, how do I "track debian testing", as you say? What do my sources list need to be?
Best Regards

These attached files worked for me. I was able to successfully run software-properties-gtk/kde in my VM.

lsb-release and lsb-release.dpkg-dist go in /etc/
SolydXK.info and SolydXK.mirrors go in /usr/share/python-apt/templates/

Cheers :geek:

I don't know about the kernel. I tried to install it through smxi - sgfxi, and smxi stopped me due to "no support" (when the kernel was 3.9) due to a recently upgraded Xorg/Xserver 6.9. I forced the installation of the 13.6 beta with sgfxi using the sgfxi -B -! 6 command. I did not try installing 13.4.

They have upgraded the beta driver to 13.8, and I'm have no issues with the latest 3.10.7 kernel.

For me on KDE had to install kio-mtp plugin for my Nook Color tablet running Jellybean 10.2.3.

For xfce search synaptic on mtp and see what the name of MTP plugin is for xfce.
