Trying to update the usm databases for my usm databases backup into a module script
usmdb.sh

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
# Version 0.1 by rava@forum.porteus.org
targetdir=/tmp/usmdb-$(date +%Y-%m-%d)
xzmdbmodule=/tmp/usmdb-$(date +%Y-%m-%d).xzm
if [ -d $targetdir ]; then
	rm -r $targetdir
fi
mkdir $targetdir
cp -a --parents /var/usm/ $targetdir
dir2xzm $targetdir $xzmdbmodule
echo -e "Your module is created as ${xzmdbmodule}.
Make sure to copy it outside the union prior shutdown or reboot."

It all worked well yesterday, but I had to reboot, and today the databases update fails and fails:

What is the best approach to force usm in using another mirror for, in this case, the sbo database?

Repeating usm -u all just keeps getting the same error.

Also, the help doesn't name sbo as one of the databases:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# usm -h
find: ‘/tmp/xdg-runtime-guest/gvfs’: Permission denied
  Usage: usm <option> [argument] 

 Single letter options also support entire words.
 Example: -u is the same as -update, --update or update

 Use example:  -u all (to update all databases)

 Options 			 Arguments 
  -u: Update databases. 	 alien|ponce|salix|slackware|slacky|slackonly|all

:(

There should be enough free space in the union, right?

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# dx /
02.02.2019 10:19:17 ____________________________________________________________
Filesystem     Type 1M-blocks  Used Available Use% Mounted on
aufs           aufs       777   534       244  69% /
My dx function prints the df in MBs. And omits 'tmpfs|/mnt/live/run|squashfs' :)

Offtopic weirdness, but after I deleted some stuff from /tmp my / aufs had less free space than before:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/tmp# dx /
02.02.2019 10:23:06 ____________________________________________________________
Filesystem     Type 1M-blocks  Used Available Use% Mounted on
aufs           aufs       777   566       212  73% /
How could that be? Are deleted files still stored in / aufs?
I really expected the / aufs having more free space after deleting stuff from the union, e.g. from /tmp. Why is that the very opposite, then?
Cheers!

nope, still the same error, be it the default or the https://slackware.uk/slackbuilds.org/
mirror. :wall:

Ed_P could you please upload the module by the usm update + database script you posted the other day?
That sure would solve my issue for now. Unless the database got to old and a update might be required, but let's think positive and not presume this error is ongoing forever.
Cheers!

:lol: If I can find that script I will see what I can do.

But the fact that I can update sbo (2x) and ncmp can too implies that the problem is not with the mirror but with your system. And that being so the file I create may not help you. Have you tried doing the sbo update in AF mode?

Another thought would be to add the USM database backup to the rootcopy backup that you create. It's what I do to my changes module.

Update thanks for the PM and the uploaded USM module, I was not quick enough sending you my version of the usm and db backup script. xD

Porteus - USM error

Post#73 by martynuzza » 03 Feb 2020, 14:57

I have some problem with USM (using porteus 5 rc1), i'm not able to download any package that require dependancies (LIBS.TXT not found) or if i search for a package (i.e. Thunderbird) appear a version but is not installable the lastest but an older one. I had to manually search, download and convert mozilla-thunderbird-68.4.2-x86_64-1_slack14.2.txz to xzm.

Now a simply tool: nano, it complain about awk...

Code: Select all

usm -g nano

 The following items were found.

 ctrl+c to quit

I've done that already before posting here. Clean porteus without any modification. It's a mirror problem?
