paludis and Masked by repository

I wanted to install chromium, but some packages were masked
net-www/chromium-scm:scm::pipping: Masked by repository
sys-devel/gyp-scm:0::pipping: Masked by repository

in file /var/db/paludis/repositories/pipping/metadata/repository_mask.conf

So according to http://paludis.pioto.org/faq/howdoi.html i add to /etc/paludis/package_unmask.conf

Notice the :0 and that there are no -scm. But cave show chromium and gyp will show you some additional info.

PS. :0 isn’t obligatory as I see

package.unmask -> package_unmask.conf
chromium:scm -> chromium

exherbo nice, me stupid enough

14:14 krenso: why adobe-flash has so many deps? i just downloaded archive from adobe and it works
14:17 zlin: because we hate flash
14:20 krenso: 🙂
14:22 zlin: we figured it’d be interesting to see how long it’d be before someone stupid enough to care would notice
14:27 krenso: and how long was it?
14:27 arkanoid: not long enough

Contributing to exherbo with git patch

Generally don’t work (commit) in repository which paludis uses. clone repo (cp -R should be sufficient).

If you know what you doing you can use git stash.

that can be your workflow: modify file, try if it compiles, cd .., cp -R repo repo.bak, cd repo.bak, git commit -a, git format-patch -M -C -1

copy patch to dpaste.com: wgetpaste -c cat your.patch

and inform about on #exherbo: !pq http//dpaste.com/number/plain ::repo

remove patch from queue: !pd number (number from dpaste)

PS. before commiting set name, email, also enable (permanently) detecting renames with git config –global diff.renames copy



PS2. you cat paste to clipboard also: xclip -in -selection c your.patch http://linuxtidbits.wordpress.com/2008/02/22/command-line-to-clipboard/


PS3. set correct locales, like described here https://rofrol.wordpress.com/2008/02/25/lokalizacja-gentoo-i-utf-8/

PS4. keep PLATFORMS sorted alphabetically

PS5. If your ouput log is too big for dpaste you omploader.org

PS6. If you bump package, check deps, also for options configure –help and configure.ac

Problem: startx is slow, when I switch to console i see warning: missing charsets in String to Fontset conversion. LC_ALL=C startx is fast.

Solution: install fonts for encodings listed in /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE, twm output shows which encodings it is missing still: font-misc-misc for iso, jisx-0x201, font-daewoo-misc for ksc5601.1987-0, font-isas-misc for gb2312.1980.0, font-jis-misc for jisx0208.1983-0
or just comment some sections in this file

Warning: paludis –uninstall doesn’t remove it from /usr/lib64/X11/fonts/misc/fonts.dir and then you have to remove it manually (fc-cache -vf doesn’t work for me)

exherbo python-2.6.2 fails

problem: testStdin OtherFileTests AssertionError IOError not raised during python-2.6.2 instalation on exherbo

solution1: sed out test
solution2: make patch for test (don’t change test with sed like in gentoo)
solution3: bump to new version?
solution4: add to exheres changes from gentoo ebuild (isatty is always false under paludis) so it’s dirty and bad
sed -e „s:’osf1V5′:’osf1V5′ and sys.stdin.isatty():” -i Lib/test/test_file.py || die „sed failed”
