NuTyX 11.2 will need manual intervention
« on: Sat Sep 28 10:02:28 2019 »
Preliminary information:
---------------------------

As today, I'm the only packager on NuTyX, I need to simplify the administration of the packages. The supported desktops are going to be merged in one single collection call 'desktops'

I'm also planning to drop the 'nos' collection.

I'm plan to merge all the supported desktops in one collection. This means, in the coming NuTyX 11.2 version the officials collections will be named:

- base
- cli
- cli-extra
- gui
- gui-extra
- desktops

This means as a consequence of this, the '/etc/cards.conf' file will need to be manualy adjusted.

More explannation in the coming news on this topic when NuTyX 11.2 will be release sometime in october 2019.

I can understand needing to reduce the permutations and effort required to maintain them.  When you get it figured out, please post an example of how the configuration would be changed. 

Thanks :)

As today, I'm please to annonce the new collection set. They are many way to setup your /etc/cards.conf file.

you need to define:
- the url of the mirror
- the collections
- the collection you want to keep in case of going back to a base system
- the group you want cards install automaticaly (at least your locale).

So here is the default cards configuration for a french speaking person:
Code: [Select]
sudo bash
echo "url http://downloads.nutyx.org" > /etc/cards.conf
for i in desktops gui-extra gui cli-extra cli base
do
   echo "dir /var/lib/pkg/depot/$i" >> /etc/cards.conf
done
echo "base /var/lib/pkg/depot/base
group fr" >> /etc/cards.conf

Your /etc/cards.conf will look like:

Code: [Select]
url http://downloads.nutyx.org
dir /var/lib/pkg/depot/desktops
dir /var/lib/pkg/depot/gui-extra
dir /var/lib/pkg/depot/gui
dir /var/lib/pkg/depot/cli-extra
dir /var/lib/pkg/depot/cli
dir /var/lib/pkg/depot/base
base /var/lib/pkg/depot/base
group fr

If you don't know the shortcut of your language, re-run the command:

Code: [Select]
sudo bash
setup-nutyx -cl

I ran the script, but with "en" in stead of "fr", the "check" and "cards upgrade". Everything seems to work except dosbox, which reports "dosbox: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL_net-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". SDL v.1 was removed during upgrade.
