I didn't use a version number because USM will uninstall the existing version during an update. Instead of jumping through hoops to figure out the previous installed version, it is simply 0.0 since it is also not arch dependent. The version is identified through the -v command (or GUI).

:%) But if one updates the USM, shuts down USM, then restarts it and goes to update the databases having USM display a msg indicating USM needs to be updated is misleading and illogical. imo

Please check again to see if it is fixed. I put the wrong date in the config file on the server. Thanks for reporting.

@brokenman
As I was the original reporter of the USM update issue, until Ed_P replies I can confirm the bug is now fixed my end.

Clicking on update for USM now gives message that "You have the current USM version"

thanks for fixing

Re: USM bug reports

Post#370 by Rava » 24 Dec 2015, 04:08

Since the update of usm via usm again not worked for me (sometimes it works, but most times it fails and I have not found out why) another even stranger thing now happened:

I downloaded usm from http://sourceforge.net/projects/usm/fil ... rce=navbar , renamed the xzm to reflect the version number and activated it:

Code: Select all

rava@porteus:/mnt/live/memory/images$ file usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm/
usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm/: directory 
Then I asked usm which version it now has, and it told me: still 3.1.7!

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/mnt# usm -v
 You are using USM version:  3.1.7
Then I asked the files itself aka usm's own version.txt what version they are and this is where it gets weird:

Code: Select all

rava@porteus:/mnt/live/memory/images$ grep USMVERSION usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm/etc/usm/version.txt 
USMVERSION=3.1.9
rava@porteus:/mnt/live/memory/images$ grep USMVERSION /etc/usm/version.txt
USMVERSION=3.1.7
When I activate a module, the existing file, here /etc/usm/version.txt should be "overwritten" by a same file with the fully qualified file name, in this case, /etc/usm/version.txt should be the same as /mnt/live/memory/images/usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm/etc/usm/version.txt, and both should have USMVERSION=3.1.9; but as you can see in the code above, it is not.


Why is that so? How can that happen at all?

//Update

I now checked with md5sum not only the version.txt, but also usr/bin/usm itself, and it is even more strange:

Code: Select all

rava@porteus:/mnt/live/memory/images$ md5sum USMVERSION usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm/usr/bin/usm /usr/bin/usm
md5sum: USMVERSION: No such file or directory
5abb90e28f7eddf6ea7cdba9bf48d6f8  usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm/usr/bin/usm
5abb90e28f7eddf6ea7cdba9bf48d6f8  /usr/bin/usm
rava@porteus:/mnt/live/memory/images$ md5sum usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm/etc/usm/version.txt /etc/usm/version.txt
0492f3be27b597f5bcf566901a022d68  usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm/etc/usm/version.txt
9d06a0c2811d2b89f7c5a36793d04e4a  /etc/usm/version.txt
See? For some very weird reason, the version.txt in /etc was not updated by activating the usm module, but usm itself was, and I presume all other files or at least some have been updated as well.

But why was etc/usm/version.txt omitted from being updated?

Me thinks I finally caught the reason why usm acts so weird on my system, but the question remains: How can that even be possible at all?

Here the file permissions:

Code: Select all

rava@porteus:/mnt/live/memory/images$ ls -l usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm/etc/usm/version.txt /etc/usm/version.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 160 Dec 14 12:35 /etc/usm/version.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 166 Sep 25 00:26 usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm/etc/usm/version.txt
I now will check if the file is immune against changes, I will update soon.

//UPDATE2
Seems, lsattr is not possible on the files in the live system:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/mnt# lsattr /etc/usm/version.txt 
lsattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device While reading flags on /etc/usm/version.txt
Then I just tried copying the version.txt from the activated module to its live system file:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/mnt# cp /mnt/live/memory/images/usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm/etc/usm/version.txt /etc/usm/version.txt
cp: overwrite ‘/etc/usm/version.txt’? y
root@porteus:/mnt# md5sum /mnt/live/memory/images/usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm/etc/usm/version.txt /etc/usm/version.txt
0492f3be27b597f5bcf566901a022d68  /mnt/live/memory/images/usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm/etc/usm/version.txt
0492f3be27b597f5bcf566901a022d68  /etc/usm/version.txt
root@porteus:/mnt# usm -v
 You are using USM version:  3.1.9
That worked, but that is not what should be needed to do, now is it?
When I create a module for any updated or new program, then all files, including all setup files need to be updated in the live system as well.
There was no usm or usmgui running while I did all that, and as you can see, as simple cp was able to replace the outdated version.txt.

But why was activate not able to do so?
Cheers!
Yours Rava

@Rava

If running AF, why not just install the usm package, and forget about the module?

See? That is always happening like so, after "usm -u all", it finds file okay with "usm -s", gives info to files okay, but trying to download always ends with the same "Nothing found for:" error.

Re: USM bug reports

Post#373 by Rava » 24 Dec 2015, 19:09

UPDATE

Found a possible hint to whats going wrong with my usm

Now, after reboot, it makes the very same error again.
After I updated its databases, the file /etc/usm/ignore-deps.txt gets replaced by a downloaded gzipped html file, that is still named ignore-deps.txt
Same happens with /etc/usm/extra-deps.txt

Here what mcedit shows me of the files start:

Code: Select all

brokenman, do you have any idea what could cause usm to act that way?


_____________________

UPDATE2
To check how it is happening, I reverted all back to the original state (by deactivating 3.1.9 xzm and copying the files from /mnt/live/memory/images/001-core.xzm/etc/usm to /etc/usm and did a usm -u all

While it downloaded its database update, nothing was wrong with the two /etc/usm files, but as soon as usm told me at the end

Code: Select all

Downloading: extra-deps.txt  DONE
Downloading: ignore-deps.txt  DONE
again it created the gzipped html files like I described above:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/etc/usm# ls -o extra-deps.txt ignore-deps.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root 16279 Dec 24 20:16 extra-deps.txt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root 16291 Dec 24 20:16 ignore-deps.txt
root@porteus:/etc/usm# file extra-deps.txt ignore-deps.txt
extra-deps.txt:  gzip compressed data, from Unix, max speed
ignore-deps.txt: gzip compressed data, from Unix, max speed
I also checked /usr/share/usm and all the files there are the ones from version 3.1.7 as it should be after I deactivated the 3.1.9 xzm module...

___________________

UPDATE3
I again activated the usm-3.1.9 module.
All files in /usr/share/usm have been updated.
Three files in /etc/usm have not been updated but are the same as before, the very same as yesterday:
version.txt extra-deps.txt and ignore-deps.txt

So, I again downloaded the most recent usm from http://sourceforge.net/projects/usm/fil ... m/download and did a md5sum on it, and one the one I put into my /porteus/base prior reboot:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/mnt/downloaded# md5sum usm-latest-0.0-noarch-1.xzm /x/porteus/base/100-usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm 
280a9db46ee87397d44a293a2731394f  usm-latest-0.0-noarch-1.xzm
280a9db46ee87397d44a293a2731394f  /x/porteus/base/100-usm-3.1.9-noarch-1.xzm
Both are the same, but only brokenman can confirm if the md5sum is correct.

Now instead of once again deactivating and activating it all over again, I try installing the txz instead... Stay tuned.
Cheers!

@Rava

Come across this issue before. Something to do with the search algorithm:

Now, downloaded the txz from http://sourceforge.net/projects/usm/files/ and done this:

Code: Select all

You can change the time limit for skipping in: /etc/usm/usm.conf
The default is 3 hours
Most probably it only not did the same error with extra-deps.txt and ignore-deps.txt cause usm thought they have been updated 81 seconds ago, which sure was not when I updated them, most probably it was the time I did the installpkg usm-latest-0.0-noarch-1.txz

Still, I cannot install nothing:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/etc/usm# usm -g graphicsmagick

 Nothing found for:  graphicsmagick
while it still finds stuff:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/etc/usm# usm -s graphicsmagick

GraphicsMagick-1.3.21-x86_64-2_slack.txz was found in slackonly [not installed]
GraphicsMagick-1.3.19-x86_64-1sl.txz was found in slacky [not installed]
Packages found:   2 

Use:   usm -i <package>  for more info
Use:   usm -g <package>  to download
UPDATE
I now also did a manual download from http://sourceforge.net/projects/usm/files/ , downloading vercheck.txt and extra-deps.txt, putting them both into /etc/usm but the above error stays the same, usm finds stuff, but is unable to download anything...


I also looked into /var/usm and the files there at least look like they have been downloaded just okay:

Me thinks, only brokenman is able to sort out this messy behaviour of usm. Hopefully... :Rose: :beer:

Unless... I created a local /home/rava/.wgetrc as you can see above, that cloaks wget so that sites think its an Firefox, and not wget. But that is a setting by user rava, not a setting that any instance of wget started by root should use...
