[SOLVED] ctpv does not work after the last upgrade

ctpv prieview does not work for lf anymore after the last upgrade, it does not show any previews anymore.

What could be the issue?

Re: [SOLVED] ctpv does not work after the last upgrade

Are you using ctpv or ctpv-git ?

Re: [SOLVED] ctpv does not work after the last upgrade

I guess I am talking about this one:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ctpv

since the version is 1.1

but I have all the files on my device and I install it using

sudo make install

what is the difference between the two you mentioned though?

Re: [SOLVED] ctpv does not work after the last upgrade

You're using configure/make/install instead of pacman/makepkg to install cptv and this causes all kinds of issues.

You should use PKGBUILDs to create binary packages that will be managed with pacman .

Search for pacman, makepkg, pkgbuild and especially AUR in the arch wiki.

cptv-git builds the development version while cptv builds a released version.

Re: [SOLVED] ctpv does not work after the last upgrade

and what is wrong with having source code on my device and compiling it myself? smile

just tried both of those packages in AUR and both did not work.

I suspect there has been some change in the system after the upgrade because I am getting something like this while compiling the package:

  src/ctpv.c:175:5: warning: ‘MD5’ is deprecated: Since OpenSSL 3.0 [-Wdeprecated-declarations]

Re: [SOLVED] ctpv does not work after the last upgrade

By doing that you're circumventing the control of pacman over your system. IF you know what you're doing and can manage two conflicting systems (pacman and manual installs) succesfully, kudos to you.

Just make sure you can support your system yourself because no one else knows enough about it.

The deprecation warning should (for now) have no impact on functionality.

When was the upgrade where this changed and which packages were involved ?
is your lf from repos or another manual build ?

How about posting some logs / journals / dmesg from running lf and accessing folders with files that are supposed to have  a preview from ctpv ?

Re: [SOLVED] ctpv does not work after the last upgrade

You could ask upstream to swap to code that is not deprecated.  For its caching purpose I would have thought XXH3_128bits which also 128bit in size might work.  As Lone_Wolf has already noted though that warning message is not the cause of your issue.

Have you tried bisecting ctpv between 1.0 and 1.1?

no, but I do not think version 1.1 is the issue since I have been using it successfully for over half a year.

And after the system upgrade pacman -Syu ctpv got broken. So I suspect it must be some dependancies or something like that?

As you are not using pacman to manage cptv how do you ensure the dependencies are correct?  Have you tried a basic test of invoking cptv directly and checking it can still start?

https://www.nikitaivanov.com/man1/ctpv#h

cptv -h

Edit:
If that works without issue,  strace `lf` and determine how it invokes cptv and what the response is.

Re: [SOLVED] ctpv does not work after the last upgrade

interesting thing:

I  bought a new disk and installed a completely new and fresh system and previews did not work.

Put an old disk and previews worked fine. Then I did pacman -Syu and now the previews on my old system on my old SSD does not work too:)

Is the issue you do not know what the dependencies of cptv are or you do not know how to find if those packages were in the upgrade?  For the former I would start with the dependencies listed in the PKGBUILD for cptv,  you can also use ld, strace and ctpv's documentation.  For the latter you can look in /var/log/pacman.log.

I had not tried this command before the upgrade because everything worked perfectly in lf smile

The thing is, I compile that package myself and I have never got any error as per dependencies. As I mentioned, after ctpv broke I tried both of the AUR packages and both did not work. And as for the upgrade, I think it is impossible for me to track it, since I did a fresh install or am I wrong here?

Perhaps this is providing you with an insight into what maintaining a package involves.

You can find when the date of the last upgrade before the one that broke ctpv you can use the ALA to restore all packages to that date and test if cptv then functions as expected.  You can then reduce the date range down until you find a single date that introduced the issue.

Okay, this actually worked. I have been able to find a specific upgrade date which breaks ctpv, it is April 27, 2024. If I downgrade to April 26, 2024 ctpv works.

Re: [SOLVED] ctpv does not work after the last upgrade

The difference between ueberzug 18.2.2-2 and 18.2.2-1 is a rebuild .

ueberzug depends on several python packages and there's this in the downgrade list :

warning: python: downgrading from version 3.12.3-1 to version 3.11.8-1

archlinux switched from python 3.11 to python 3.12 on april 26.
