Palemoon repo weirdness.... attention Steve Pusser

Postby No_windows » 2020-05-10 17:48

A few hours ago, I tried adding the Palemoon repo to my Buster sources.list and I was getting funny results. The repo wouldn't show up in Synaptic, but I could see the individual packages, which had ARM64 appended onto the name. I double checked that I was using the Debian 10 repos, and not Raspberry PI version. I decided to go ahead and select Palemoon for installation (thinking that maybe it was a typo) and Synaptic complained that is had a ton of uninstallable dependencies, so I assume Synaptic is believing that it's ARM, not AMD64.

Is this a problem on my end or the repo? I'm guessing it's on the repo end.

I think it would be better if you posted terminal output, for example:
Code: Select all
apt install -s palemoon

Hmm, I just tried it, and I got the expected output, so I went ahead and installed it with apt. Synaptic only sees it now that it's installed. If I click on the Architecture section of Synaptic I see several versions of Palemoon.... AMD64, i386, arm64, armhf. Steve's repo also finally appeared in the Origin section.... but doesn't on my Jessie Synaptic (I never noticed that until now)

If I put "palemoon" into the quicksearch box, that arm64 version still comes up along with the amd64 version that I installed with apt. I guess there is something about this repo that confuses Synaptic.

Since you are running Debian 10 you might like Packagesearch as an alternative to Synaptic. Packagesearch works in Debian 10 without the hassles that Synaptic requires.

Install inxi and give the output of "inxi -r" so we can see your sources.

Or just give us the contents of the sources.list.d file that adding the repo created so we can double check your work. It works fine for everyone else, so I have to assume the problem is with your sources, not the repo!

Did you ever enable arm64 multisupport arch?

Code: Select all
 inxi -r
Repos:
  Active apt repos in: /etc/apt/sources.list
  1: deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ buster/updates main
  2: deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster main contrib non-free
  3: deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster-updates main contrib non-free
  4: deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser/Debian_10/ /


I also have the MX repo in my sources list, but it's not active. I grabbed some of the theme/icon related stuff and the Nvidia firmware installer.

I moved the entry to sources.list when I initially ran into problems.

If I did it was completely by accident.... I have no idea how or why a person would do that.

So did the information I provided offer any insight to what I experienced?

I don't see anything out of the ordinary. I guess just install it with the command line to avoid possible Synaptic weirdness, like the instructions from the repo say: "apt-get install palemoon".

I don’t know if this is the right choice. In addition, this program depends on qt5 libs. And i think it is more heavy weight compared to synaptic.

What hassles are you speaking of? Normally Synaptic works very well for me.
