Re: Hash mismatch of ps2eps, update fails

re-builds of the package with new never used before versions should be in the public repo now, so I have re-enabled the mirror.

Re: Hash mismatch of ps2eps, update fails

Ok, this is partly our fault. One of the corner cases our infrastructure does not handle correctly. Our autobinnmuer has no interlocks to make sure the same binnmu version is not used in multiple suites. The archive software will prevent the same version being used for different package content in t...

Re: Hash mismatch of ps2eps, update fails

I have disabled the mirrors entry in the mirror redirection system and contacted it's admin. I suspect the most likely cause is an out of disk space issue.

Re: Possible to break dependencies? I.e., Install a package w/o its dependencies?

The debian packaging system gets most unhappy when dependencies are unsatisfied.

So you basically have two options.

1. Build a dummy package that satisfies the dependency without really providing the service in question
2. Rebuild the package with the dependency to remove it.

Re: Problems cross-compiling for Zero with gcc

The problem is that when you pass flags on the compiler command line to change the minimum CPU requirements they change the minimum CPU requirements for the code generated by the compiler, but they don't change the minimum CPU requirements for the libraries/startup code supplied with the compiler.

Pygame 1.9.4 has now been uploaded to Debian sid but is currently blocked from migrating to buster by a build failure on s390x, I just whipped up a patch for that, hopefully the maintainer uploads it soon.

Re: pygame 1.9.4

The major thing is support for python 3.7, so this needs to get packaged before the move to buster, hopefully that can be handled Debian side but if that is not possible then a local raspberry pi package will be needed.

Re: I think I Crippled My Pi... :(

The problem when people accidentally yank on cables is that they usually don't pull straight, so rather than just pulling the connector out it wedges the two halves of the connector together and puts considerable stress on the whole assembly.

PSA, reverting raspbian gtk+ changes in buster

A long time ago I modfied the raspbian gtk+3.0 package to disable mesa egl/gles, I did this because at the time installing those libraries caused big problems for Pi users.

Re: mirrors.opencas.cn mirror can not be reached

The problem is the mirror is IPv6 only but the mirror redirection system wasn't aware of that fact. So it was sending ipv4 clients to it.

I have updated the settings in the mirror redirection system so ipv4 clients should no longer be sent to that mirror.

Re: Please remove broken mirror from mirrordirector

Thanks for the information.

I have confirmed that the mirror does not have an ipv4 address and have reconfigured the mirror redirection system so that only ipv6 clients will be sent to that mirror.

Does this solve your problems?
