Re: Project ARM :: Arch Rollback Machine

Here is the script I use locally -- http://sprunge.us/gGdg

I have it run by cron once a day:

Re: Project ARM :: Arch Rollback Machine

'downgrade' is not the only script used for downgrading.

Have you considered changing the name of the service so it doesn't collide with a popular CPU architecture?

I agree, ARM is now a confusing name.

Indeed.

How about "Arch Package Cache" (APC).

Re: Project ARM :: Arch Rollback Machine

@steve___, thank you very much for your script, we'll take it for a good example.

APC is till confusing with the PHP Accelerator APC, any other suggestions?

'downgrade' may be the most popular downgrade script, but I'll try to inform all the similiar scripts authors.

Thanks. Maybe posting on the AUR pages of the respective packages would be a good idea, as not every ARM user is aware that ARM closed down: https://mailman.archlinux.org/pipermail … 34054.html


ALPC http://acronyms.thefreedictionary.com/ALPC conflicts with Adaptive Linear Predictive Coding and Advanced Local Procedure Call.
Do you prefer three-letter acronyms?

I'd call it Old Arch Linux Packages - OALP.

Well looking at phoenixlzx's reply, it might not be a bad suggestion.

What do you say phoenixlzx?

Arch Linux Package Cache (ALPC).

Re: Project ARM :: Arch Rollback Machine

'ALPC' seems better than APC and ARM, it seems hard to find an abbr that wont conflict with anything today XD.

We will take 'ALPC' as one of the consideration, thanks for the idea.

And I'm testing our new platform on the server now, seems everything good except it take toooo long time to finish the first sync, thus database is being locking for long ( couldnt query... ).

That is genious (have a cookie big_smile ). My vote was with Arch Linux Package Cache (ALPC) until I saw that (not that votes here count hmm )

Re: Project ARM :: Arch Rollback Machine

Well it wont be old at all - we will sync with official repo at least once every day, it can be used as daily update mirror if you dont mind. So it's an 'Arch Package Archive' - 'APA', or 'Arch Linux Package Archive' if you like. ;-)

Re: Project ARM :: Arch Rollback Machine

Hello,

We are now have the new server up and running. Basic functionality is correctly implemented as planned. Next step is implementing daily-repo functionality.

You could test it at http://repo-arm.archlinuxcn.org (new name isnt decided yet) and follow the instructions below.

The new search pattern is

/search?arch=$arch&pkgname=$pkgname

where $arch can be both `i686` and `x86_64`, `any` packages will be automatically added, $pkgname is _exactly_ the package name. The query will return in format:

pkgrepo|pkgname|arch|pkgver|downloadurl

If no packages found, currently return nothing.
For example, request URL

http://repo-arm.archlinuxcn.org/search?arch=x86_64&pkgname=linux

will get

testing|linux|x86_64|3.10.9-1|http://repo-arm-download.archlinuxcn.org/testing/os/x86_64/linux-3.10.9-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
core|linux|x86_64|3.10.7-1|http://repo-arm-download.archlinuxcn.org/core/os/x86_64/linux-3.10.7-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

in plain text, it will be easy for any script to parse.

Our community server app & configurations can be found at https://github.com/archlinuxcn/repo-arm-server, feedbacks, patches and bug reports are always welcome.

Hello Archers,

As @felixonmars said, we are now preparing to set up a new A.R.M service. I've searched but got nothing, so we finally started from scratch.

Currently I have re-wrote the A.R.M server side script using Node.js, and @lilydjwg is working with package & database management, which could boost the new A.R.M server app. Sync script and daily-repo functionality will be done by @felixonmars.

We will contact the author of downgrade script to adopt our new API after we've got green light on our new platform , so that all need to be done by end users is to upgrade their downgrade package.

Of course, we wont lock these scripts and configurations in our brains. I will post a new article about how to make your own A.R.M service so anyone could make it. :-)

Hello @phoenixlzx,

If you would allow mirroring, my mirror site http://archlinux.cs.nctu.edu.tw could help share the bandwidth!

Hello,

Firstly thank you for your support, no problem on mirroring. However, for the package search and daily-repo functionality, setup your own service site will be a better choice (much faster & efficient as you are using your very own mirror.).

I would like to listen to your opinion. We'll release documentation for these scripts we are developing so that anyone could make it.

Hello,

That would be no problem at all!
So, for those who would like to set up a mirror site for ALPC, there are two things to be done:

1. rsync packages regularly from the ALPC upsream(or a tier 1 mirror site, if there is too much mirror sites)
2. grab the kit, including package search(supposed to be a website?), daily-repo and all other stuff, from the ALPC upstream, and set them up right.

Does it sound reasonable? Suggestion please!

Yep, you are right.

I have post the first version of the HOW-TO document here: https://github.com/archlinuxcn/repo-arm … .M-Service

You could setup your own A.R.M service follow the instruction. If you run into any trouble, contact us via new issue. :-)

Packages, in gravy.

While it's a shorter acronym, ALPO, may contain ALPACA...
