PostPosted: Sun 22 Oct 2017, 17:47    Post subject: getting updates pkgs in petget  

Further to the above,

Possible bug in petget/0setup:

I'm using a pretty bog standard Slacko 6.9.x build..

I'm trying to get Slacko to install wpa_supplicant 2.6, which has fixes against a big security problem in wifi (as far as I understand it)...

This wpa_supplicant 2.6 is in the Slackware patches repo.

The 0setup script, used in Woof and Petget, merges the latest pkgs from the "Slackware patches" into
the main *-official repo files, when updating/building Puppys repo files... (as I understand it)..

That's pretty cool, hat's off Smile

However, while Petget successfully lists wpa_supplicant 2.6 in the repo after an update, it wrongly shows (ALREADY INSTALLED)..
Cos I actually only have 2.5 installed..

Even worse, trying to install any new pkgs added from the patches repo (and merged into "Packages-slackware14.2-official" in Petget) fails..
It says "missing libraries".. Even if I download them in the browser and ldd them (none missing)..

Anyone else have (or can anyone reproduce) the same problem?

(I'm well aware I don't understand Woof very well, so don't wanna just start logging spurious Github issues, so am asking here if I have this all correct...)


[As a side note, after updating the repos, my own pkg manager was able to download and install the wpa_supplicant 2.6, and the new bash
listed in patches without a problem (had to use the --force option to override existing pkgs]

-----------

A feature request

On a very related note, if there are new pkgs in the repos, I would love Puppy to print to the console (or terminal emulator) on first run of each boot
the names of all the new pkgs in the repos, just like Ubuntu does...

Especially if it's security fixes.. To that end it might NOT be better to merge the patches/fixes/security pkgs into the main repo files...

Ideally puppy would check for new pkgs at boot, and if new pkgs found, booting to X would be delayed i until after i had seen the msg and
chosen to install/ignore/etc.. and then X loads up.. (so, more like apt-get/ubuntu)

(this could actually be achieved with my pkg manager fairly easily, if puppy didn't merge the new pkgs into the main repo files and instead
kept the patches/fixes repos in their own files, like all the other repos..)

And wouldn't it be less code and hackery in woof to simply treat the patches (etc) repos like normal repos - with their own repo files...?

Again, I don't know enough about Woof to do this a 'proper' way (using Petget, root-fs skeleton, etc) ...

...Any thoughts?

Subject description: Tried to update wpa-supplicant
 

Hi sc0ttman

If it's of any help to you, I am using stock slacko6.9.9.9 as found @ ibiblio, and have updated wpa_supplicant this morning.

I didn't use any of the command line tools, just Puppy Package Manager, and it too listed wpa_supplicant as "already installed", but I think it's normal behavior for PPM, and that it labels app by name, not by version, as such. (It displayed a warning that installed apps are not normally shown in the list, but updates are, with "already installed" label.)

While installing this, it downloaded heaps of other stuff, as qt-4.8.7 is a dependency of wpa_supplicant 2.6. In the end, installer reported that there are missing libraries, but these are from dependencies further down the chain. When checking, it seems that:

Quote:
File /usr/lib/gstreamer-1.0/libgstcdparanoia.so has these missing library files:
libcdda_interface.so.0 libcdda_paranoia.so.0
File /usr/lib/gstreamer-1.0/libgstlibvisual.so has these missing library files:
libvisual-0.4.so.0

A similar thing happened to me. When I ran ./0setup it kept pulling this mysterious list that still had 2.5 in it, even though each list I could find on slackware site said 2.6. Somehow deleting the woof-CE folder, re-running the git command and doing ./merge2out and ./0setup again fixed it. I'm not sure what the issue was, glad it somehow randomly fixed itself eventually Laughing

Glad you fixed it, but did you try updating the repos in the Petget of a running Slacko pup that doesn't have those PETs yet, and then installing the newly added PETs? Cos that is what is not working for me..

In other words, I built a Slacko a few weeks back, which didn't include the new wpa_supplicant 2.6 pet, then updated the repos, the new wpa_supplicant (2.6) was then listed in Petget, but after trying to install it, I still only had wpa_supplicant 2.5 installed (when i did wpa_supplicant --version)...


xpio wrote:

But did you run `wpa_supplicant --version` to check you actually got 2.6? Cos I didn't get 2.6, I still had 2.5 installed..

And, are we sure those deps listed are correct? Does wpa_supplicant really need all those things?? I suspect not.. Most of them are builtins so not too much harm, but still ..

+bzip2,+dbus,+expat,+fontconfig,+freetype,+gcc,+gcc-g++,+glib2,+harfbuzz,+libICE,+libSM,+libX11,+libXau,+libXdmcp,+libXext,+libXrender,+libffi,+libnl3,+libpng,+libxcb,+ncurses,+openssl-solibs,+openssl,+qt,+readline,+util-linux,+zlib

Not gonna derail the whole thread with this problem...

So I will leave a "possible bug report", that "merging new PETs into the main repo files seems not to work for me, and 0setup seems to be the culprit.."

Again, this would need confirming by other users of recent Slacko builds, who update the repos and try to install the newly added pets..

I hear you... wpa_gui?

PPM must include the templates from woof if we are to keep a lean system.

There are plenty of bug reports relating to updating xorg and various other system critical applications.

A drawback of woof? YES. From the start.

Fixable? Probably.

Something to consider in your CLI package manager.

NB> Apologies that I haven't had time to update some slacko/woof stuff but I do hold a full time job and am the full time carer for my Grand son. I think that is a fair excuse and distracts me enough to not put out a half baked Puppy version. I wish I had the skills of Houdini but I don't! Laughing

Feel free to PM me or drop me an email and I'll do what I can. (preference = email the '01micko' address which should be findable, spam trackers are awake up to the 'myadress At somedomain DOT com' stuff ).

Cheers!

PS> Scott, nice work on the build scripts. Sort out your github and I'll see what I can do to make you a member of the team.

Yes (actually "-v"), and it says "wpa_supplicant v2.6".

Afterwards I just uninstalled qt and all of its dependencies (which only broke wpa-gui). All this is from user perspective, I didn't build my Slacko, just installed 6.9.9.9 from ibiblio and updated with PPM.

You are right, dependencies information of gst-plugins-base-1.6.4 package is incomplete.
Install cdparanoia-III_10.2-i486-1.txz to resolve dependencies of gst-plugins-base.

btw: it's not recommended to use the original Slackware package of wpa_supplicant because of plenty of dependencies ( see above )
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

wpa_supplicant question:

installed version 2.5 contains libnl.so.1.1.4 and symlinks libnl.so and libnl.so.1 to libnl.so.1.1.4

Does somebody knows which application is using this library ?
Could not find a dependency of wpa_supplicant components or other applications.

Hi guys,

Well, the existence of wpa_gui clears up my large deps list query.. Not norgos though...

I forgot about the gui (as it wasn't installed), and hadn't checked the FIXUP hack, to be honest.. Embarassed

But even so, I still didn't get 2.6 installed using PPM.. not sure why...

If you did though xpio, (and considering the above info) then I'll assume it's my bad..

And I will look into how Petget handles FIXUP hacks (if at all), and think about some way to get something similar into Pkg..
(A list of blacklisted files, associated with their pkg, might be the simplest alternative? Something like:

~/.packages/blacklisted_files:
Code:
wpa_supplicant|/usr/bin/wpa_gui,/some/other/file


Maybe it could even include blacklisted deps too(a dep is a pkg, which is basically still just a list of files):

~/.packages/blacklisted_files:
Code:
wpa_supplicant|/usr/bin/wpa_gui,/some/other/file,+qt


... when getting the deps list of <pkg-name>, or doing its post install, you could check that file,
then remove the stuff listed for that pkg... very simple, pretty easy to maintain, and might even might work!!

................


BTW, 01micko, you have done so much for puppy users it's amazing.. You don't owe anyone any time (of course)..
And your most recent efforts (inc petbuild) could have been taken up better by others (myself included), to ease the load on you..

Anyway.. Funnily enough, I started my new job just yesterday, spent the day setting up, so have just done the bits n bobs I needed to do..

I will find ur email and msg you tomorrow at some point, will ask a few questions about petbuild (if u dont mind) so
I can get an idea on the roadmap, desired future features, caveats, etc, and how to add to it in the preferred way, etc..

EDIT!! (only cos I wanna maybe fork it/merge it with buildpet, for my Pkg thing.. not cos i plan to take it over obvs!!)

Cheers guys.. And cheers Mick for all the great stuff you've done so far! Once i'm out of my overdraft, (a few pay-checks/months away),
I will defo donate at your site

Thanks.

@sc0ttman

Hi Scotty,

Yes, PPM is a little bit strange sometimes.

Example:
search for smplayer gives me three hits
1. smplayer-17.8.0
2. smplayer-17.10.2
3. smplayer-17.4.2

see pic 1

three different versions from three different servers.
This means, PPM is showing what available is ( not the installed version )
These information come from ~/.packages/Packages-...14.2
That's why from time to time PPM database should become updated.

Btw. in my case smplayer-17.7.0 was installed.
If PPM is starting and a different version of the desired application is installed
a window pops up with the appropriate information.
That's absolutely okay.

see pic 2

But !!!
If a builtin package becomes deleted, PPM is showing nevertheless (ALREADY INSTALLED)
This is definitively wrong.
I have no idea from where PPM takes this information.

PostPosted: Sat 28 Oct 2017, 19:20    Post subject: wpa_supplicant 2.6  

apropos wpa_supplicant 2.6

It is possible to compile wpa_supplicant without qt gui.
I did this three days ago under Slacko 6.9.9.9 ('testing;bdab886;2017-07-29 17:54:31 +0800')

following patches have been applied:

rebased-v2.6-0001-hostapd-Avoid-key-reinstallation-in-FT-handshake
rebased-v2.6-0002-Prevent-reinstallation-of-an-already-in-use-group-ke
rebased-v2.6-0003-Extend-protection-of-GTK-IGTK-reinstallation-of-WNM
rebased-v2.6-0004-Prevent-installation-of-an-all-zero-TK
rebased-v2.6-0005-Fix-PTK-rekeying-to-generate-a-new-ANonce
rebased-v2.6-0006-TDLS-Reject-TPK-TK-reconfiguration
rebased-v2.6-0007-WNM-Ignore-WNM-Sleep-Mode-Response-without-pending-r
rebased-v2.6-0008-FT-Do-not-allow-multiple-Reassociation-Response-fram

assoc-timeout
dbus-service-file-args
flush-debug-output
quiet-scan-results-message


I took the original Slackware build as template from here
( unneeded features have been commented out before compilation )

please note, this is only a test version !

wpa_supplicant-2.6-slk700-i686.pet ( size: 709 k , md5: 4ddaef8ce86dfedab36f14000630a8eb )

Brave tester are welcome Smile

Note: The default action of the updated ROX-Filer copy/move dialog (Quiet checkbox ticked, Newer checkbox unticked and Force checkbox unticked) requires user confirmation before overwriting existing destination files. However, this behavior may be tedious for some users when copying or moving multiple files. In this scenario, the Force option (if also ticked) enables immediate overwriting of destination files without serial confirmation dialogs. Importantly, the Force checkbox defaults to the unticked state each time the copy/move dialog is called, and must be manually ticked if you wish to copy/move multiple files without confirmation.

If the 'Newer' checkbox is ticked (and Force unticked), ROX-Filer will only overwrite if source is newer than destination. User confirmation is still required if source is older than destination or if source and destination dates are identical. However, the Force option (if also ticked) will override the Newer option and forcefully overwrite destination files without regard for the file date. Consequently, the Force option should be used with an understanding of its purpose and power.

In the Options Configuration GUI of ROX-Filer there is another 'Force' checkbox which applies to the confirmation dialog you may see when deleting non-writeable items. This option does not control the Force option of the copy/move dialog.

Thanks

Edit: iso removed

Hi @radky

Nice build....

You seem to have a similar problem to me on ArtfulPup - shutdown with LUKS encrypted savefile "hangs" ....

More minor - sound icon does not show (white on white??)

Cheers
