This problem of SFE runtime/python-32 package, setting wrong group on usr/share, leading to collision.

Are you able to uninstall runtime/python-32 ? It has to be rebuilt in the repo.

Dieter, you should be able to do pkg fix and it should work for you then.

Alex, I NMU-bumped version of python to 3.2.3 and fixed packaging. Please, rebuild and push new to the repo.


Updated by Milan Jurik almost 9 years ago

Dieter, of course, newer version of python-32 has to be pushed to the repo to be usable. Just other packages should be working for you now.

did "pkg fix" once, tried to install "runtime/python-32" again (had been removed the day before): cf. attached png; did "pkg fix" 2.+3. time: captchured output (all 3) differed only in zfs-snapshot timestamps (no checking of what went to the terminal), "repaired" a lot every time again.

BTW: produces a list of 2979 lines (plus: what went to the terminal = mostly similar to contents of the *.png), much concerning missing license files or wrong uid/gid/perms, file sizes,...

I hope it is not a distraction to mention that the system had crashed, leaving a BE backup behind:

slightly OT: the pkg English error messages might be clear, but the German translation IMHO can be clearer: either packages may be installed together or not, or if the user decides they are ok or... ? This might happen when trying to stick too close to the original when translating instead of representing the sense. I still have to see a sysadmin who is better served by mother tongue lyrics than clear technical info, but that is another story...

python-32 will not be installable till it is fixed in repo.

I met the problem with license also, it is issue in the latest prestable version vs. new pkg. I hope OI team will fix it. Please, log it as separate issue.

"the system had crashed" - pkg crashed? Please, log it as separate issue.

For translation, well, again, new issue if possible :-)

"pkg fix" : bug #2661 - no effect ("license problem": in the logfile attached there ;-) )
"system crash": Feature #2662: my guess described there, not necessarily OI's fault, I think
"translation": for now I remember there is enough work TBD already...

BTW: originally I ran into the install problem with seahorse, not python-32
