Hi Dj

I tried to uninstall Audacious, "package in use".
Code: [Select]
sudo cards remove audacious-plugins audacious
But You need to find out what else is using Pulseaudio to remove it

Forgive me if I am wrong....but me thinks what you are trying to say is that a member can not delete a package if its  a dependency of another package-name......unless you enter

Code: [Select]
sudo cards remove packageB packageA
and that suggests to me.....that cards should modify its error message from
"package in use" to
"package is a dependency of a package not being removed"

or words to help us newbies  ;D

Tips and Tricks / Re: NuTyX equivalent of 'apt-file search <a file>'

OP

In the meantime a suggestion on how to resolve missing man pages
go to
https://packages.debian.org/index

find the input box for Search the contents of packages
input your man page names and then check cards search searchterm.

I suggest they might be coreutils and bash. Debian package name appears to be bash-builtins ....YMMV

ok I have bodgied up a simple script. I have made up some file under /usr/bin for example purposes.
The package maintainer would know where the files are generated. Let me use 8188eu as starting point
script might have
Code: [Select]
P=8188eu
# the package assumed built in a dir called /tmp/$P
cd /tmp/$P/usr/bin
echo $P > /tmp/$P.list
ls >> /tmp/$P.list

# below not a part of script but would show up in database
cat /tmp/$P.list
8188eu
exe1
exe2

and the downstreamer would  change dir into other dirs only if needed to list shared objects, headers and to help OP,
man pages but not need to list licences.

The database could be called database.txt and would be searchable using a standard web browser.

Ok I can not find a more recent 64 bit provides.db but an example is clickable if interested, and I will show a snippet

http://tinycorelinux.net/4.x/x86/provides.db

The structure has package name, then relevant contents. To save you clicking  link here is a snippet of a package called alsa and amd-dev.tcz as it has example of header file

Quote
alsa.tcz
aconnect
alsaloop
alsamixer
SNIP OUT other exes
smixer-ac97.so
smixer-hda.so
smixer-sbase.so
alsactl
Front_Center.wav
SNIP OUT OTHER wav files

amd-dev.tcz
amd_internal.h
amd.h
libamd.a

strictly speaking....the member does not care if the executable is in /usr/local  or /usr/bin or /sbin etc.....they just want to know what package to install for a specific executable

ditto the shared object executables and headers.

This helps package builders.....as they are looking for missing shared objects or headers.
Naturally, you can have duplicate header names in different packages
eg searchterm=autoconf.h gives multiple hits including
freeradius-dev.tcz
zziplib-dev.tcz etc
and so the searcher would research the package description to assess the relevance.

Rather than start a new post, I would like to add my 2 cents worth.

I know a little about Tinycore linux gui package manager called Apps. It has a pull down search function called provides
a user would search for an executable name or shared object name or header name. That repo has a provides.db database file.

post has been EDITTED

so my suggestion would be.....for new packages.....downstream maintainers would need to produces a file list of the new package
for repo maintainer.....they would add these file listings to a database file

To avoid adding a new feature to the gui cards.....members who need to search would find the latest database file at
(relevant to the arch) eg
http://downloads.nutyx.org/x86_64/rolling/

members would search using their web browser

EDIT ..downstreamer script now 2 posts down

For the Repo maintainer, I guess each new/updated package  list would be "catted" to the most reason database file

upload to replace older one And I suggest it only be asked for .....for new packages or updated packages.

thanks for reading

I don't have Parole or Firefox.
 I tried to uninstall Audacious, "package in use".
 It's very complicated to use Nutyx, I can't figure out why I can uninstall application that I have installed.

I have installed XFCE from scratch, sorry, forgot to mention that.
 When I log in I can reboot without problems.
 But as soon I try to mount partitions, reboot and shutdown from gui is greyed out.
 I use Lightdm.

Grep is showing this

I did a clean install of xfce4, All linux partitions (ext4) are shown on Desktop and all mount using Thunar. Yes Ntfs not mounting ?.

Pulseaudio is not pulled in on xfce4, Firefox pulls it in as a dep.
Xfce4-extra pulls in xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin, as part of a collection, removeable.

MPV is not pulled in with either Xfce4 or extra

As for Shutdown Reboot xfce4, it dose work. If you have tried to mount the Ntfs that blocks it, reboot, as long as ntfs is not in fstab shutdown reboot works.
