deb2xzm errors question

Post#1 by Ed_P » 06 May 2015, 21:26

I recently downloaded the multibootusb .deb package and used Porteus' deb2xzm command to convert it to a module. But the conversion yielded several errors which are preventing the package from running.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ cd Downloads

So tried another way using deb2txz,sh Quick Script from Tutorials:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ sh deb2txz.sh multibootusb_7.5.0-1_all.deb 
dataname = data.tar.xz

multibootusb: 7.5.0 (multibootusb_7.5.0-1_all.deb)

Slackware package maker, version 3.14159.

Searching for symbolic links:

No symbolic links were found, so we won't make an installation script.
You can make your own later in ./install/doinst.sh and rebuild the
package if you like.

This next step is optional - you can set the directories in your package
to some sane permissions. If any of the directories in your package have
special permissions, then DO NOT reset them here!

Would you like to reset all directory permissions to 755 (drwxr-xr-x) and
directory ownerships to root.root ([y]es, [n]o)? n

Well, just try what I did and see if it turns out any different, with a different variation.

Hi Bogomips.

I did not pick up on the name of the script you used was named deb2txz rather than deb2xzm initially. :( But when I tried the one you recommended it didn't work for me.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ cd Downloads
guest@porteus:~/Downloads$ deb2txz.sh multibootusb_7.5.0-1_all.deb
bash: deb2txz.sh: command not found
guest@porteus:~/Downloads$

Hi!
I know really little about linux, but when I encounter problem I first google to see if this problem already was solved by someone before.
Just putting "/sbin/ldconfig: /usr/lib/libv4lconvert.so.0 is not a symbolic link" in search field brings up number of results when people had same issue. It might happen you have in /usr/lib files which have their names starting similarly and are identical.
Then you have to remove those which are expected to be symlink and create real symlink instead.
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1154 ... bolic-link
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=136408
https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread. ... blic-links

But I as well might be wrong, so I'd rather waited for confirmation from somebody more experienced.

Actually sunnysideofthesun Googling is a good suggestion. But Googling on deb2txz.sh was more enlightening than searching on the symbolic link errors,.

So Bogomips, I found your script and followed the steps you suggested:

Code: Select all

dataname = data.tar.xz

You can make your own later in ./install/doinst.sh and rebuild the

This next step is optional - you can set the directories in your package
to some sane permissions. If any of the directories in your package have
special permissions, then DO NOT reset them here!

Would you like to reset all directory permissions to 755 (drwxr-xr-x) and
directory ownerships to root.root ([y]es, [n]o)? n

@Ed_P
Finally it seems that you might perhaps have more joy switching to KDE to activate the module you have created. If all goes well, the multiboot can then be set up from KDE. After all you will not be having to work in KDE once you have booted into another Linux. :wink:

If you will be brave enough to try this method, then here it is.
To look for these files.

Code: Select all

ls -lah /usr/lib | grep 'libv4lconvert\|libv4l2\|libv4l1'
If there are any symbolic links, then you'll receive an output strings containing
libv4lconvert.so -> libv4lconvert.so.0.x.x
.x.x in my example stands for numbers in filename which I don't know, but I expect it to be .0.0
You'll have to replace it in commands with actual numbers.
Files which aren't symbolic links will be listed alone.
Files of symbolic links have size of few bytes, libraries are few Kb.
Symbolic links and libraries have different icons when I look at them in PCmanFM file manager too.
To change current directory to /usr/lib, to remove old files and then to create symbolic links (lib4vlconvert.so.0 for file lib4lconvert.so.0.x.x etc.):

Code: Select all

cd /usr/lib
rm libv4lconvert.so.0
rm libv4l2.so.0
rm libv4l1.so.0
ln -s libv4lconvert.so.0.x.x libv4lconvert.so.0
ln -s libv4l2.so.0.x.x libv4l2.so.0
ln -s libv4l1.so.0.x.x libv4l1.so.0
I tried as well to recreate your issue, but multibootusb from .deb package was converted without error messages.
But don't you worry, this application didn't work after activation of xzm module too.
Neither I have on 64bit LXQt Porteus files like libv4lconvert.so etc. in /usr/lib folder, all of them are located in /usr/lib64.
May be multibootusb is not suppposed to work on 64bit, who knows.

Actually there was since you didn't give a link to your script's posting. https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=4577

Thanks for the suggestions sunnysideofthesun. The next time I'm on Porteus I will try them. I'm on 64bit also and using the RazorQT DE so that may also be a limitation. I liked the LXQT DE when I was working with 3.1 but since it is being discontinued and 3.1 doesn't support Suspend for lid closing I'm still on 3.0.1.

To look for these files.

Code: Select all

ls -lah /usr/lib | grep 'libv4lconvert\|libv4l2\|libv4l1'
If there are any symbolic links, then you'll receive an output strings containing
libv4lconvert.so -> libv4lconvert.so.0.x.x
Here's what I see:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ ls -lah /usr/lib | grep 'libv4lconvert\|libv4l2\|libv4l1'
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root   16 Sep 15  2014 libv4l1.so -> libv4l1.so.0.0.0*

-rwxr-xr-x   1 root root 148K Jun 22  2013 libv4lconvert.so.0.0.0*
guest@porteus:~$ 
To change current directory to /usr/lib, to remove old files and then to create symbolic links (lib4vlconvert.so.0 for file lib4lconvert.so.0.x.x etc.):

Code: Select all

cd /usr/lib
rm libv4lconvert.so.0
rm libv4l2.so.0
rm libv4l1.so.0
ln -s libv4lconvert.so.0.x.x libv4lconvert.so.0
ln -s libv4l2.so.0.x.x libv4l2.so.0
ln -s libv4l1.so.0.x.x libv4l1.so.0
I'm concerned about the impact to other app/modules if I remove the current links.
