Thanks! xentric that vimdiff script works.

Btw, you asked me to change the script at /usr/lib/cfg-update/cfg-update. However, I found the same script at /usr/bin/cfg-update (diff shows no difference). I modified the script /usr/bin/cfg-update. I think, if the file at /usr/lib is the main file, then the file at /usr/bin should be a symlink to that. This should probably be handled by the ebuild.

Sorry, my mistake... I should have told you to edit /usr/bin/cfg-update because the other file /usr/lib/cfg-update/cfg-update is a redundant copy. The next -r4 ebuild will only place the script in /usr/bin/.
Thanks! (I'll edit my last post)

Comming from paludis support thread ....

Would it be possible to make cfg-update work with paludis? (maybe a paludis use flag or a special release which I can maintain, host ...)

I tried to incorporeate it with paludis using a hook
install_pre or install_all_pre:
  #!/bin/bash
 source ${PALUDIS_EBUILD_DIR}/echo_functions.bash
 
 einfo "cfg-update: indexing ..."
 
 if [ -e "/usr/bin/cfg-update" ]; then
     cfg-update --index
 else
     ewarn "cfg-update not found, is it installed?"
 fi


It didn't work because the paludis.log file should be used insted of emerge.log. They are quite different
emerge.log:
1165200072: Started emerge on: Dec 04, 2006 03:41:12

There are probably more things to change to make it work with paludis. Any ideas what must be changed?

I like cfg-update, I used it with portage, but now it doesn't work for me with paludis. I am prepared to help as much as I can to make it usable for paludis, too. But I am not close the cfg-update code, so I don't know where to start, ... etc.

I host an overlay, where etc-update was converted by jordan83 to etc-paludis, so it can be used with paludis. Maybe it can help in some way. The link to the overlay is in my signature (paludis-extras).

Maybe a new thread for paludis support should be created, because moderators could want to move it to unsupported software. I'm not sure how it goes...

About technical questions you can turn on #paludis on irc-freenode, the guys there know paludis inside out.

I am also looking for full integration of cfg-update with Paludis. Reading about Paludis I really think its a huge step forward from what I for years have felt is a too stagnant portage, but cfg-update is such a great tool that I just dont want to make the move until it supports Paludis.

I'm working on support for Paludis at this moment...
I've installed Gentoo in a virtual machine and installed Paludis on it.
cfg-update will soon have support for Paludis!

I hate to sound confused but what do I have to do to get vimdiff to save my changes or not changes. I'm trying to save the update cfg-update thinks I have. in this case my custom cfg-upate.conf vs the "update" when I rebuilt the system. all I want to do is get it to realize that the one in the left pane is the one I want to use.

A. If you have selected only lines from the left pane in vimdiff, the left file (current /etc/foo) will not change when you quit vimdiff with :wqa
B. If you do not select anything in vimdiff and just close vimdiff without saving, the left file (current /etc/foo) will also not change.

When you exit vimdiff, cfg-update continues by checking if the left (current /etc/foo) file has changed or not. (compares before and after checksum)
So in case A or B, cfg-update will prompt you:
Code:
No changes detected...
  Press [1] - if you want replace the current file with the ._cfg????_ file
  Press [2] - if you want to keep the current file and remove the ._cfg????_ file
  Press [r] - if you want to re-try merging the files
  Press [s] - to skip this update (to investigate first, and try again later)
  Press [q] - to quit cfg-update immediately
How do you want to finish this update? [1|2|r|s|q]

This is where you simply choose [2] to remove /etc/._cfg0000_foo and keep /etc/foo.

raising hand for testing paludis support.

At the moment cfg-update is quite annoying with paludis. ;)
I am ready for test if you need more testers.

Well, cfg-update is ready for release, supporting Paludis and all, but Paludis itself had a problem (now fixed) which causes some problems when using cfg-update. So I probably have to include a mandatory check for users with /usr/bin/paludis on their system. I'm still working on this issue :(

To explain it very short: Paludis <0.20.0 stored the wrong checksum in the CONTENTS file during installation. It'd put the checksum of the /etc/foo file in the CONTENTS file instead of the checksum of the /etc/._cfg0000_foo file. As far as I know cfg-update is the only tool that uses these CONTENTS files. I found this issue during testing with an older version of Paludis but in Paludis version 0.20.0 they changed that part of the sourcecode which effectively fixed this bug...

The problem is that cfg-update uses this checksum to determine if a configuration file has been modified or not. When it hasn't been modified after installation the cfg-update automatically overwrites the current file with the update. That's where the shit hits the fan... because the checksum of /etc/foo was written to the CONTENTS file, cfg-update sees the /etc/foo as unmodified and replaces it with /etc/._cfg0000_foo. So there is a possibility that custom settings are lost!

I wrote a subroutine that checks which packages have been installed with Paludis <0.20.0, for each of those it also checks if they have put files in one of the protected directories. These packages are potential cases where you can loose your custom settings so you should re-install those packages. You'll be presented with a list of packages which need to be re-installed with Paludis 0.20.0 or higher...

But I still have to test this properly and decide if I want to make this test mandatory or if it's gonna be used with an option like --paludis-check.

If you still want to test the ebuild including the check for packages that need to be re-installed, you can grab the ebuild and the tarball and join #paludis-extras on Freenode to share your findings with me :D

Hej,

ebuild grabbed,
tarball grabbed.

As you can see I have a small problem on latency...
I am on weekdays without Internet (again :( ), my modem throws an odd error :(
So I am back to the habbit that I check all things on weekends where I usually have only view time.

I noted all and will report back, here or to freenode if I make it ;)
I cya!

Does cfg-update still require Portage, because it needs "portageq" ?

I use Paludis, and the hook seems to work well, but 'cfg-update -l' doesn't report any '._cfg*' files.

I am using Paludis 0.24.2 and cfg-update 1.8.2-r1.

Thanks.

Nope, when paludis is the package manager (which is determined by looking at the first line of the checksum index), cfg-update takes the protected directories from /var/db/pkg/.cache/all_CONFIG_PROTECT instead of using portageq.
Please check if that file contains the proper directories...

/var/db/pkg/.cache/all_CONFIG_PROTECT has the right directories, and /var/lib/cfg-update/checksum.index contains "Paludis" in the first line.

However, "cfg-update -s" doesn't report these directories, and "cfg-update -l" doesn't show any files to update, even though they are there. This is even with taking care to source root's bashrc.

Here is the first section of the debug info:

Code:

    mount_last               = 0

</show_debug_info>


It appears that cfg-update still thinks the package manager is Portage, despite what I wrote above.

This is weird...
The debug output you posted is printed before the correct pkg_manager is set, so it doesn't mean that it uses Portage further down the script too.

Can you post the output of "cfg-update -d -s", especially this part:
Code:
<list_dirs>
    <find_protected_dirs>
          portageq config_protect # <-- this could be different in your case... if it doesn't print anything, pkg_manager is not Portage!
    </find_protected_dirs>

First run: "cp /usr/bin/cfg-update /usr/bin/cfg-update.backup"

Then go to /usr/bin/cfg-update line 390:
Code:
# If --index --paludis is used (in Paludis hook) then set the package manager to Paludis and check/build index...

Insert the following code right above that line:
Code:
# If the index does exist, take the correct pkg_manager from the first line (except when --ebuild option is used)...
    if (($opt_ebuild == 0) && (-e "$index_file")) {
        if ($opt_d >= 1) { print "$tab"."  head -n1 $index_file\n"; }
        my $first_line = `head -n1 $index_file $debug`;
        chomp $first_line;
        $_ = $first_line; /:/; $pkg_manager = $`; # take string to left of ":", that should be the pkg_manager
    }   
# If debug mode is detected show most important variables...
    if ($opt_d >= 1) { &show_debug_info; }
Then try "cfg-update -d -s" again...

I just had surgery on tuesday and I'm temporarily staying at my parents house.
I'll probably be back home next week. As soon as I get home I'll check into this.

Hi, xentric. I hope the surgery was successful and you're well.
For the error I temporarily created the file /var/db/pkg/.cache/all_CONFIG_PROTECT
and run cfg-update. There were no errors. Then just to be sure I deleted the /var/db/pkg/.cache/ directory,
run cfg-update, everything was adequate.

Hi Xentric,

Hope all is well since the surgery.

I just recently reinstalled Gentoo and decided to try Paludis.
Of course I wanted to keep cfg-update around, and I was pleased to find that it supports Paludis!
So, I finished the Gentoo install, emerged cfg-update (and a few other small utils), and then emerged Paludis!

Anyway, on to the point...

After installing Paludis I attempted to update the world, and received the following error from the cfg-hook:
Code:
cfg-update>  *cfg-update:
cfg-update>  Can't open file: /var/db/pkg/.cache/all_CONFIG_PROTECT!


I understand that cfg-update (under Paludis) relies upon all_CONFIG_PROTECT as its list of protected directories.
I also understand that all_CONFIG_PROTECT is update by two install_post / install_all_post hooks.
The thing is, all_CONFIG_PROTECT is also initially generated by the above hooks, after Paludis installs its first package ever.

Since:
  • cfg-update needs all_CONFIG_PROTECT
  • I already had cfg-update installed before I installed Paludis
  • all_CONFIG_PROTECT is not initially generated until after Paludis installs its first package ever
  • The cfg-update hook runs as install_all_pre

Means: Paludis will not work until cfg-update is removed or until something like what I did (see below) is done.

So, to fix the problem, I:

Code:
mv -t /tmp /usr/share/paludis/hooks/install_all_pre/cfg-update.bash
paludis -i some_package
mv -t /usr/share/paludis/hooks/install_all_pre/ /tmp/cfg-update.bash


and now things are as they should be for cfg-update and Paludis to work together.

I'm not familiar enough with Paludis to know why all_CONFIG_PROTECT is not initially generated upon install of Paludis, maybe there is a good reason.
Maybe Paludis actually *does* generate them, except in my case, I may have had an error I didn't see and they weren't generated (but I don't think that's the case).

PostPosted: Tue Sep 04, 2007 3:04 am    Post subject: OOPS. cfg-update error due to unused install of paludis Reply with quote

[SOLVED: I had not removed paludis. Once I unmerged paludis, cfg-update ran fine, and cfg-update --check-packages found no problem. My apologies.]

Curiosity killed the cat. I installed paludis, uninstalled without using it (it was too complicated for me to get involved with at the time, maybe ever).

Recently cfg-update gives the following error:

Littlebird lngndvs # cfg-update --check-packages
Can't open file: /var/db/pkg/.cache/all_CONFIG_PROTECT!

You will notive that message even if I run cfg-update --check-packages.

I guess if one installed paludis and installed a package with it, then he can fix his system with this command? But I have NOT installed a single package and my cfg-update is borked.

What can I do to recover? Is there a config file somewhere that paludis touched?

Thank you,

Alan
