    • My personal ramblings
Hmm...
Code: [Select]
apt-get install libreoffice
still wants to remove at least mysql-workbench, poedit, powertop and 10 or so libraries, haven't checked but it might be that most or all of them have replacements...

Installing whiteroom nox*
*build 26.07.2015

1. Start with language de, timezone Berlin and toram option
2. whiteroom nox starts without errors, using cli-installer for installation
3. Installation without errors.
4. Rebbot without errors

-- all steps passed --

Trying to make a dist-upgrade
1. aptitude is removed and some other packages but IMHO nothing important
2. The dist-upgrade ends without any error
3. aptitude is reinstallable

-- all steps passed --

Trying to add kde flavour
Preparation: Installing xserver, iceweasel, lightdm, openbox with success.
1. without kdenext repo adding KDE flavour is not possible
 
Code: [Select]
apt-get install kde-standard
Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut.       
Statusinformationen werden eingelesen.... Fertig
Einige Pakete konnten nicht installiert werden. Das kann bedeuten, dass
Sie eine unmögliche Situation angefordert haben oder, wenn Sie die
Unstable-Distribution verwenden, dass einige erforderliche Pakete noch
nicht erstellt wurden oder Incoming noch nicht verlassen haben.
Die folgenden Informationen helfen Ihnen vielleicht, die Situation zu lösen:

Die folgenden Pakete haben unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten:
 kde-standard : Hängt ab von: akregator (>= 4:4.11.3) soll aber nicht installiert werden
                Hängt ab von: kaddressbook (>= 4:4.11.3) soll aber nicht installiert werden
                Hängt ab von: kde-plasma-desktop (>= 5:88) soll aber nicht installiert werden
                Hängt ab von: kmail (>= 4:4.11.3) soll aber nicht installiert werden
                Hängt ab von: knotes (>= 4:4.11.3) soll aber nicht installiert werden
                Hängt ab von: kopete (>= 4:4.11.3) soll aber nicht installiert werden
                Hängt ab von: korganizer (>= 4:4.11.3) soll aber nicht installiert werden
E: Probleme können nicht korrigiert werden, Sie haben zurückgehaltene defekte Pakete.

2. Adding kdenext repo but also with kdenext repo adding KDE flavour is not possible
 
Code: [Select]
apt-get install kde-standard
Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut.       
Statusinformationen werden eingelesen.... Fertig
Einige Pakete konnten nicht installiert werden. Das kann bedeuten, dass
Sie eine unmögliche Situation angefordert haben oder, wenn Sie die

nicht erstellt wurden oder Incoming noch nicht verlassen haben.
Die folgenden Informationen helfen Ihnen vielleicht, die Situation zu lösen:

Die folgenden Pakete haben unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten:
 kde-standard : Hängt ab von: baloo-kf5 soll aber nicht installiert werden
                Hängt ab von: juk (>= 4:4.13.3) soll aber nicht installiert werden
                Hängt ab von: kde-baseapps soll aber nicht installiert werden
                Hängt ab von: kscreensaver (>= 4:4.13.3) soll aber nicht installiert werden
                Hängt ab von: plasma-desktop (>= 4:5.0.0) soll aber nicht installiert werden
E: Probleme können nicht korrigiert werden, Sie haben zurückgehaltene defekte Pakete.

3. Trying to install KDE with addpkg kde also fails

  -- some steps fails --

At this time KDE flavour is not installable.

adding cinnamon flavour to xfce installation
« Reply #19 on: 2015/08/19, 13:38:40 »
Hello,

yesterday evening I've tried to add cinnamon flavour to successful xfce installation, I've described above:

Code: [Select]
addpkg cinnamon
1. Is possible without errors
2. Adding further cinnamon based stuff per synaptic is also possible
3. Working with cinnamon ssettings and filemanager nemo is possible

  -- All steps passed --

cinnamon and lxqt are flavours I'll take a look at from time to time, different DEs but both interesting for me.

I think it's great what you try to do but maybe in a wrong time.
Too many turbulence in unstable repo right now  ;D

No, it is the right time, please read first articel of this thread, then I hope you will understand, that I test different flavours of siduction because of gcc transition in unstable repo :-)

Kind regards,
  Holger

@holgerw: but it is pointless - some things that run now may be broken 6 hours later and vice versa - and it will be for the next few month i'm affraid.

@freedom: Why, a indian summer intallation will work unaffected, upgrades via snapshot until 31.07 too - after that you are in the same situation like any other siduction user.

............................................ ..upgrades via snapshot until 31.07 too - after that you are in the same situation like any other siduction user.

How does that work?  How to upgrade from snapshot? How to find snapshots?

Hello Alf,


I think, when it is possible to get a complete installation of xfce e.g., taking whiteroom build as basic system, and when it is also possible to make D-U and to add some stuff - some kde applications are installable - then you can get a working siduction and you can wait with further D-U, until apt doesn't remove important stuff.


Kind regards,
  Holger

Is it possible to have plasma 5 KDE that way?
I mean, installing siduction-kde ISO, upgrading with 31.07 snapshot and installing Santa's KDE from kde-next repo?

@holgerw: i beg to differ - for a normal user it is sufficient ot take our latest release and use it as it is - i would recommend to update to the latest possible snapshot (31.08) i think - after doing so i would only touch the system if i encounter serious security breaks - in that case i would try to upgrade the package in charge, don't use it of find a alternative.

Of curse one could try to use apt upgrade or apt install to get some current packages installed - but i would not to suggest it to people using kde or gnome as things will break. Beside of that i run my dist-upgrades daily, the only disadvantage so far is that i lost my teamviewer - its to much effort to maintain a multiarch system these days - and if a package break that i need - i rebuild it with proper dependencies (or a new release) - unfortunally not everyone can do so.

Unfortunally we don't know what breaks nex, we don't also not whent, its a little bit rough outside in sid land - so if one is not a developer or need a working machine i would hereby strongly suggest not to use the latest packages - buy hey, its only me, everyone is free to spend his time as one want to - i only see much sense in it, because we know that things are broken, will be broken, stay broken - or have other faults introduced which aren't visible at first sight. So if you find breakages which shouldn't be (false packaging esp) you should file a bug, that will be helpful. if you find current packages with false dependencies (boost1.55 or such things) - file a bug, that will help a lot.

@freedom: You should  really ask santa about it - but i'm really sure what the answer will be: try it in a virtual machine and have fun, if it works and not so much important things break - be happy, otherwise be patient :) And i'm sure too, that santa will make a post if it is save to upgrade.
