mdadm for VL64
« on: February 16, 2013, 02:23:04 pm »

The package udisks-1.0.4-x86_64-1vl70 lists dep which I don't see in our repo:
mdadm >= 2.6.4

I have test rebuild udisk-1.0.4 in the buildbot and it seem it did not need mdadm as dependency...you can try udisk-1.0.4 v2 in the untested repo...
But i also build mdadm in the untested repo...just in case :)

32-bit: both udisks and mdadm installed without errors.

64-bit: Found another dep issue for udisks-1.0.4-x86_64-2vl70.txz:
Code: [Select]
udisks: Depends: sg3_utils >= 1.32-x86_64-1vl70The version in repo is "sg3_utils-1.31-x86_64-1vl70". I forced install using this version and no problems noted.

mdadm installed without any problems, and responded normally when run. :)

In this case it is a very minor issue, but generally I prefer deps to be real requirements. I vote for the package with the least amount of baggage.  ;)

Hm.. I guess the untested repo gets cleaned out on a schedule? The package is no longer available from any location. Same with the new udisks and sg3_utils.  :(

I do believe it does. If I recall, I think we decided on a 14 day window. (If you paid attention to the Google Group, you'd have known that.  ;D  )

If you paid attention
Thank you for reminding me of my ex-wife...  :D

Cleaning out the clutter is a good idea. However, it would been nice if the packages hata_ph built, which were verified good, could have been moved to testing. What a tease.. gah, there is that memory again!

You can rebuild the packages via the buildbot in the untested repo...

Thank you hata_ph. I figured out the basics and got mdadm built. Now udisks wants ntfsprogs, which failed to build. I'm wondering about some of these deps..  >:(
