Broken package in Extra repository: torrent-swapper
« on: June 13, 2007, 10:30:38 am »

We have a broken package (missing dependency) in the Extra repository.  Here is what I get when trying to install torrent-swapper:

Quote
root:# slapt-get --install torrent-swapper
Reading Package Lists... Done
Excluding torrent-swapper, use --ignore-dep to override
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  torrent-swapper: Depends: wxPython >= 2.6.3.3
The following packages have been EXCLUDED:
  torrent-swapper
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

The required version of wxPython is in testing:
ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/vectorlinux/veclinux-5.8/testing/libs/wxPython-2.6.3.3-i586-4vl58.tlz

I'd suggest that either wxPython, if sufficiently tested, be moved into Extra or else torrent-swapper needs to be rolled back to testing.

Thanks,
Cait

Thanks for the report. I'll test both packages and move either one accordingly.

Caitlyn, just as well you found this package  :): after testing torrent-swapper there is another problem as well, but relating directly to the torrent-swapper dependency list.

It was most likely built against the revised wxGTK package (6vl58), however since checkinstall probably did the dependency checking, there was no revision info appended to the slack-required file.

I'll fix the package, and move wxPython into the extra/ repo as well.

Great!  I was just curious about torrent-swapper so it wasn't urgent for me but I know you like to keep the repositories working well.

Thanks,
