Re: Xyne's repos: news and discussion

1. Your packages from xyne-i686 are packaged by 'Unknown Packager'.
2. Do you plan adding the repos to the list?

Re: Xyne's repos: news and discussion

[xyne-any]
SigLevel = Required
Server = http://xyne.archlinux.ca/repo/xyne-any/

[xyne-i686]
SigLevel = Required
Server = http://xyne.archlinux.ca/repo/xyne-i686/

pacman -Syy

is giving 404 errors for 'xyne-any.db' and xyne-i686.db'

Edit: Solved, thanks WorMzy

In the url, it's "repos", not "repo".

Re: Xyne's repos: news and discussion

I get

error: xyne-any: signature from "Xyne. <xyne@archlinux.ca>" is invalid

from time to time when running 'pacman -Syu'. 'pacman -Syy' fixes it. Should I simply use 'pacman -Syyu' for updating?

Re: Xyne's repos: news and discussion

The only time I ever need to use "-Syyu" is when the signature files are missing. I reported the bug but I can't find it now. I thought it had been fixed and closed, but the behavior persists.

That generates different error messages:

error: database 'xyne-any' is not valid (invalid or corrupted database (PGP signature))

My scripts upload the database files and signatures together, so they should always match. You would have to be really unlucky to repeatedly synchronize just after one has been uploaded but not the other. Otherwise, it may be another bug in pacman that prevents it from recognizing an updated signature. I haven't looked at the code so I don't know how it checks.

The next time it happens, compare the timestamps of the local files to those on the server.

OK, will do.

Re: Xyne's repos: news and discussion

Now I got:

error: failed retrieving file 'xyne-any.db' from xyne.archlinux.ca : Connection time-out
error: failed to update xyne-any (download library error)

but reissuing 'pacman -Syu' fixed this.

It is fixed, thanks.

Why isn't cronwhip in your repos? With regard to the issue I mentioned on https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=21079 , AUR removes whitespace and the problem is not with the 'd' from 'description' but with the double comma at the end of that line.

Re: Xyne's repos: news and discussion

The comma must have slipped in yesterday when I was editing setup.py files. I didn't notice that the build failed when I updated the site. It's back in the repo now.

Whenever it complains that the signature is invalid, please try "pacman -Syy...". Future versions of pacman should check signature timestamps and detect new ones with a simple database refresh.

Re: Xyne's repos: news and discussion

I've always used 'pacman -Syy' to fix it, but I've been getting such errors quite often recently and I thought it's something you can fix on your side.
I've edited my aliases to use '-Syyu'.

Re: Xyne's repos: news and discussion

I was waiting to see if people would figure it out by checking the repos and news pages on my site.

The thread has now been updated.

(also, the address has been modified again... should be stable now)

Re: Xyne's repos: news and discussion

Sorry, the address has changed again. I realized that lumping all of the packages into architecture-specific repos would prevent others from using the "any" packages (e.g. ARM users). Due to server limitations I cannot use symlinks and I was already duplicating "any" packages for the old setup.

I have dumped all packages into a single directory per repo set to avoid duplication.

If you use x86_64, use [xyne-x86_64] only.
If you use i686, use [xyne-i686] only.
If you use anything else (ARM, a toaster with a special chip, a carbon-based CPU made from pudding) then use [xyne-any].

Btw, if you think it's a pain to edit 2 lines in pacman.conf, just be happy that you don't have to also edit scripts and a wiki like I do.

Re: Xyne's repos: news and discussion

Just a heads up:

I've just installed a new machine and went to get pbget, but it's giving me a signature failure error. I checked the keys etc. and all seemed okay so I tried on my existing laptop using powerpill and that gives a checksum error on download:

[NOTICE] GID#98ba898ea0ac20cb - Download has already completed: /var/lib/pacman/sync/xyne-i686.db.sig

[NOTICE] Download complete: /var/lib/pacman/sync/xyne-i686.db.sig

[NOTICE] Download complete: /var/lib/pacman/sync/xyne-i686.db

[ERROR] Checksum error detected. file=/var/lib/pacman/sync/pbget-2012.12.24-1-any.pkg.tar.xz

[NOTICE] Download GID#982eeaf7502d0bb4 not complete: /var/lib/pacman/sync/pbget-2012.12.24-1-any.pkg.tar.xz

[NOTICE] Download complete: /var/lib/pacman/sync/pbget-2012.12.24-1-any.pkg.tar.xz.sig

So I tried to get pbget from the AUR but I get a 404 error when trying to download the source. If I try and go to the "Projects" page of your website, I also get a 404.
I also tried to install Powerpill on the new machine and get a signature invalid error on pm2ml as well.

Re: Xyne's repos: news and discussion

The signature mismatch was due to a bug in repo-add_and_sign which has now been fixed.
The 404 errors was a major PEBKAC on my end... I had removed half the site locally for testing some changes in Xac and forgot to restore everything before mirroring to the server.  yikes

Everything should be working again shortly.

Re: Xyne's repos: news and discussion

Xyne's site appears to be down.

Coming back to Arch for at least a little while do to some Android software development -- glad to see Xyne is still around!
