stretched MX-16 problems

#1 Post by Jerry3904 » Sat Jul 01, 2017 7:26 am

There is no official support for users like yours truly that move MX-16 to the new Stable, but I thought I would start a community thread.

Now as chance would have it, I have a problem. There are three upgradable packages that Synaptic says have unmet dependencies (image below). I have the MX Test repo enabled, so they are not in there--unsure best way to proceed.

Hasten slowly :) https://packages.debian.org/sid/libavcodec57 suggests video app related though. The New Stable is news to me though.

I knew they were video related, thanks. Thrust of my question is the "best" way to proceed, since this is a vanilla install and any user will face it.

Actually they are in both stretch & Test. The nominal version of those three ffmpeg packages in MX-15 testing is the same as in stretch, but I think 7:3.2.5-1mx15+2 is being seen as higher than stretch's 7:3.2.5-1

Running sudo apt-get upgrade from a terminal should give helpful output. I suspect that one of the dependencies needs to be manually installed - or that the preferred distribution in Synaptic needs to be changed from stable to mx or vice-versa.

The most straightforward way to handle this would be to remove all the MX testing ffmpeg packages, disable the MX test repo, then reinstall ffmpeg, but that could remove a number of other packages that depend on various parts of ffmpeg, so let's see what ap-get upgrade shows first.

It may turn out that manually forcing each mx15+1 libav* package to "downgrade" to stretch will be necessary to do this without removing any other programs.

I have an newer, Stretch-built ffmpeg 3.2.6 and its associated libav packages in my multimedia OBS repository. However, most of the other multimedia packages in there are probably going to be seen as lower versions than what's in our MX 16 repo. This can be a workaround until we start populating the MX-17 repo; seems like ffmpeg should be a priority for that.

You can add the repo and its key with this string of commands as root (not sudo):

Code: Select all

echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevepassert/Debian_9.0/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ffmpeg.list 

rm -f Release.key

wget -nv http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevepassert/Debian_9.0/Release.key -O Release.key

apt-key add - < Release.key

apt update
Then open Synaptic, hit the "Status" button, and see what it has as upgrades.

I see that antiX 17 beta now adds a 64-bit version, so will see about setting up those as Stretch build VBox machines.

Hmmm...it only ships with SMTube 17.1? SAD! I'll build the latest version against QT 5 in Stretch for its HDPI support.

It works though! Sure a later build for stretch and jessie would also be most welcome as would an upgrade of youtube-dl (jessie and stretch)
