Systemback

It is in the MX-14 repo, will it be built for MX-15 64 bit?

Having a way to quickly restore a system is priceless - especially during testing...

Looks like the files are in there
http://mxrepo.com/mx/testrepo/pool/test/s/systemback/
And they show up in the Packages list.

Did you try to install with Synaptic?

1) Excuse me, but could I suggest that you start by saying a word of thanks? Our packagers respond as volunteers as quickly as possible to user requests, and do a terrific job. MX Linux would not be what it is without them, so it is important that we let them know how much we appreciate their work.
2) If you have changed the repos to enable testing and refreshed them, you should be able to see it.
Production: 4.15.0-1-amd64, MX-17.1, AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core, GeForce GT 630/PCIe/SSE2, 8 GB, SSD 120 GB, Data 1TB
Testing: AAO 722: 4.15.0-1-386. MX-17.1, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB
Personal: XPS 13, 4.18.0-19.3-liquorix, 4 GB

Something odd here. Here is the content of my mx.list and both are active. I just refreshed repos in synaptic and I still do not see the files:

Code: Select all

# Mepis Community Main and Test Repos
deb http://main.mepis-deb.org/mx/repo/ mx15 main non-free 
deb http://main.mepis-deb.org/mx/testrepo/ mx15 test 


Am I supposed to be pointed at something else? I see the 1.6.202-1mz150+1 for 386 but not for amd64.

And yes I appreciate the work of the packagers...

OK, this is a very odd situation. I suspect a corner case in some code that parses the package lists.
The files are there. They are also listed in the Package lists that Synaptic/apitude/apt-get use.
My custom perl script which updates the package list pages on teharris.net/mxrepo.com/main.mepis-deb.org doesn't see the 64 bit versions.
Synaptic doesn't see the 64bit versions.

But you can easily install systemback in a 64bit MX-15 live session from the command line with

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install systemback
Once you have done so, then it shows in Synaptic.

edit:
It also shows up properly in aptitude.

Thanks, thought I was just ignorant. I checked sources and refreshed multiple times and always got the same results.

apt-get worked fine though.

Is this a bug report scenario?
