#1 Re: Installation » [SOLVED] consolekit requirement » 2023-01-24 08:37:11


Thanks for highlighting this. It is fixed in chimaera with libcgmanager0 now available again.

Note that src:cgmanager has been removed from ceres and daedalus and newer versions of consolekit are build without requiring libcgmanager0.

Apologies for my mistake and making a mess.

Works fine on beowulf as far as a cursory test in a VM.

Encouraging, thanks,

I'm a little confused that the Devuan config deviates so far from the Debian version to begin with - all that's really needed is s/Debian/Devuan/g and some minor cleanup of the comments.

It may date from a few years ago when lsb-release returned confusing data on Devuan to fix UEFI boot. That is now resolved.

If you have a better/improved default config for Devuan, could you submit it to Debian's BTS please?

Many thanks.

Apparently the issue with unattended-upgrades is that Devuan support is in the Debian source, but the source also needs to be recompiled on a Devuan system.

I have added preliminary support for us doing that to the Devuan jenkins instance. Could you please test these artifacts and report back?

ah, i checked this, no vpn running apparently, my ip is, indeed.
please let me know if i can do something about it, otherwise i post this error here on the forum.

Make the reverse DNS for ( resolvable.

How are you connected to the internet? Who is your ISP? It is probably something you need to get them to do.

#5 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » reportbug - available? » 2020-03-04 16:52:34

OK, then if you want to use directly, then you will need to make your IP address reverse resolvable to your hostname, or at least to something.

~% host                                                   
Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

It is possible that is more picky than debian's reportbug mx in this respect.

We are considering setting up another SMTP server for Devuan, so we might be able to look at relaxing this if it doesn't produce too much spam.

#6 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » reportbug - available? » 2020-03-04 15:13:21

Look at man reportbug.conf(5). You will need to configure reportbug to use the SMTP server that you have configured in thunderbird. In particular see smtphost, smptuser, smtppasswd and smtptls.

Try using the same settings you have for outgoing mail in thunderbird.

#7 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » reportbug - available? » 2020-03-04 13:57:38

So, it sounds as if networking is not properly set up on this system.

You need a valid host and domain. What does /etc/hostname contain?

Or do you you have an SMTP server running? In which case you should be using that to send through.

#8 Re: Hardware & System Configuration » reportbug - available? » 2020-03-04 12:57:25

Yes, it is.

You need to set a vaild email address. As the error message says, home-life.hub is not a valid domain.


#9 Re: Installation » Security Updates for Beowulf not installed automatically » 2020-03-04 11:38:16


Is the Default-release setting actually required? You only appear to have beowulf sources.

I have a beowulf VM that installs security updates fine without Default-release being set. Both beowulf and beowulf-security being priority 500.

If you want to report this as a bug, then amprolla is the correct package to report against using reportbug. It is a pseudo-package so you will need to put 'other' at the first package prompt to get to the list of available pseudopackages.
