[SOLVED] weird result for command "cards list <string>
« on: Fri Jul 29 06:41:07 2022 »
This post has no more relevance as it was for an openbox cards.conf and poor result

Definitely something wrong.

I would need your install history:

cat /var/log/install.log|paste-nutyx

I away for few days won?t be able to answer too much

no rush

If interested, I removed my web browser as I run firefox unpack.
this saves the internet when there is a point release, in the same series
eg 103.0 -> 103.1 (when it exists) is a download of the diff file (delta file)

I will install more and delete more, as I prefer icewm but currently unable to delete openbox
Being in Australia, my internet speed is poor compared to some countries so I prefer to delete to save upgrading something I care not for

What about setting up a (local) mirror for you ?

If I knew there were more aussies I might be tempted but I do not think that is the case.
Some Universities and the like... do mirror linux stuff
eg https://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/about.html
but I would be embarrassed if we set up a mirror, when I have not resolved even more basic things like my weird card package issue.

I am tempted now to download and install the base, then use cards to install lightdm and icewm and stuff,
as I booted to run level 3 and still openbox refuses (along with some other stuff) to delete.

I have no computer qualifications so do not expect anything extra than normal forum support please.

Drifting off topic, a little, I noticed another member unable to delete something too.
https://forums.nutyx.org/index.php/topic,463.0.html
and the message was similar
Quote
<package-name> is in use

Drifting off topic further, I noticed in cards that
cards install package-name.devel  does not automatically install the base package.

Having used Tinycore I suspect that the team here, is very small. I have done some downstreaming packages for Tinycore but not yet confident to know if I will stay with this distro.

So thats another reason for not asking for a mirror. Hope you agree.

OK sorry if blunt or rude, I have slow internet but happy to download stuff as I have a good monthly allowance.

Therefore, to speed up my skills I have now decided you must ignore my OP, as I will now download the base and start afresh.

If I have problems again....I will post here of course.

thanks for reading

ok clean format of openbox partition and over written with base
installed some packages (not yet complete)

retest still fails

Code: [Select]
cards install gtk2
Retrieve info about the 221 packages: 100 %
REMOVE: (gui) gtk2 2.24.33-2, 47 files: 100 %
   ADD: (gui) gtk2 2.24.33-2, 63 files: 100 %
post-install: start
post-install: finish
post-install: start
  /sbin/ldconfig -r /
  /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0 --update-cache
  /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0 --update-cache
  /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0 --update-cache
  /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0 --update-cache
  /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0 --update-cache
  /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0 --update-cache
  /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0 --update-cache
  /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0 --update-cache
  /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0 --update-cache
  /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0 --update-cache
  /usr/bin/gtk-query-immodules-2.0 --update-cache
post-install: finish
root [ /home/gor ]# cards list | grep gtk2
(gui) gtk2.devel 2.24.33-2

I am expecting to see 2 hits....one for gtk2 and gtk2.devel

2) other test still fails

Code: [Select]
cards depends lightdm
cards 2.5.4 depends: could not read /var/lib/pkg/depot/gui-extra/lxde-terminal/Pkgfile

Ok what cards.conf setting or something do I need to do....so that
/var/lib/pkg/depot dirs have all the Pkgfile (s) so that

Code: [Select]
cards depends <package-name> stops giving me
Quote
depends: could not read /var/lib/pkg/depot/<collection-name>/<package-name>/Pkgfile
