Can't update e with "tests" enabled
August 27, 2007 11:32PM
Hi,

I've enabled "tests" so I can update to the latest e17, but when I try to apt-get dist-upgrade after doing apt-get update, here's the error messages:

root@Elive[/home/steve]# apt-get dist-upgrade

Hello
Hum, to fix this, download this package : [repository.elive-systems.com]

Force installation of this package with
dpkg --force-all -i entrance-themes_cvs20070824_all.deb

Then, apt-get dist-upgrade will work wink

Thank you, this worked! idea

Now I have two other questions:

1) What was wrong?
2) Why did this fix it?

I want to learn. emosmile

Thank you!

Good night
i had a trouble like the user rebbi, but the package that fails was libeina-svn-01.. i did the same steps, i mean, download the package in a separate way, install it and then, install the efl-all package, but when i reboot, and try to init a session with e, it appears a window, like this:



Enlightenment error

This is very bad. Enlightenment SIGABRT'd.

This is not meant to happent and is likely a sign of a bug in enlightenment or the libraries it relies on. You can gdb attach to this process now to try debug it or you could exit, or jut hit restart to try and get your desktop back the way it was. Please compile every thing with -g in your FLAGS



|(F1)Recover| |(F2)Exit |



well, if i make click in recover button, nothing happens, only exit....

The question here is, i didn't compile anything, i download & install my packages from this repository:

deb [elive.linux-fr.net] lenny main elive drivers tests efl ports

can you help me or guide me in some way??

Mi PC is a Debian Squeeze with KDE 4 desktop installed...thanks in advance...

the neko
In this case i suggest to.
Login in Elive as a root. Go to Elpanel, and create a New User.
