USM - alien

I do not recommend,(and never will), to build a KDE/QT based program (module) for a XFCE/GTK based system. You will always end up with a huge module. However, if you want to run falkon with XFCE you can do it. First, we need QT5 guest@porteus:~$ falkon falkon: /usr/lib64/libQt5Core.so.5: version `Qt...

USM - alien

still the same problem:
libreoffice 6.1.4 is listed in /var/usm/alien/PACKAGES.TXT but LIBS.TXT only has 6.1.2

similar issue here:

Howto. Copy disk as iso on hdd with k9copy and play with media player

The link seem to point to a very old version.(1.0)

Translated quote from wikipedia (DE)
From version 2 K9Copy relies on KDE4.

Howto. Copy disk as iso on hdd with k9copy and play with media player

The following packages are required. aspell-0.60.6.1-x86_64-1.txz attica-0.4.2-x86_64-1.txz clucene-2.3.3.4-x86_64-2.txz enchant-1.6.0-x86_64-1.txz exiv2-0.25-x86_64-1.txz gst-plugins-base-1.6.4-x86_64-...

Howto. Copy disk as iso on hdd with k9copy and play with media player

IIRC mariadb-10.0.38 is not listed in LIBS.TXT -- select a different version of mariadb.
( And because k9copy is a KDE / QT app you need a lot more to make it run in XFCE..)

Problem with LIBS.TXT

The server itself does work - you get a LIBS.TXT file.

It's a timing / sync issue.

Example:
LIBS.TXT updated/generated at 6am > files in repo replaced at 7am > LIBS.TXT incorrect
(doesn't reflect the change in repo) till next sync.

I am curious; where exactly is "elsewhere"?.. :)

"Could not find LIBS.TXT" This message is a bit misleading, the LIBS.TXT file is in /var/usm/alien/ but the listed version of libreoffice is 6.1.2 not 6.1.4 A correct message would be "could not find libreoffice-6.1.4 in LIBS.TXT" also this file doesn't come from the repo(s) AFAIK they came from so...
