Searching package xtables-addons-dkms

Hello!

Just installed my first devuan (chimaera) on a piece of hardware.
But this may become my next firewall, so I looked for the mentioned
package and it is not there - I added the experimental repo too.
For debian, this is in testing with 3.23-1, while usually there
is 3.13-1+deb11u1 and so in devuan.
But this package is buggy and is not to install.

Some tips, other then building, would be great.
I know from experience that the 3.23-1 works well.

Thanks,
Manfred

Re: Searching package xtables-addons-dkms

Like I mentioned, there is nothing for chimaera.
Which dependency hell will another repository open for me?

Re: Searching package xtables-addons-dkms

Why do you say "there is nothing for Chimaera"? That is demonstrably not true - Chimaera has the exact same version as the current Debian Stable release. (Likewise, the version for Devuan Testing is the same as for Debian Testing, and same with Devuan Unstable and Debian Unstable.)

https://packages.debian.org/xtables-addons-dkms
https://pkginfo.devuan.org/xtables-addons-dkms

The package is not modified by Devuan, so (unless you can demonstrate a Devuan-specific bug) it's not a Devuan issue and you need to report that to the Debian; any fixes there will filter through to Devuan.

If you need a newer version in Chimaera, and you're not willing to build it yourself, then you need to find/convince a volunteer to backport it to Debian Bullseye, and again the backported version will filter through to Devuan.

Re: Searching package xtables-addons-dkms

This looks for me like an individual package install, which I wished to escape.
In debian, the newer version is in the testing repository, so no single package install.
In devuan, so far I looked on the lists, there is no testing, but experimental - dont know the difference.
This might have led to your package links. A devuan repo named testing is not listed on the page:
https://www.devuan.org/os/packages

In debian it is listed:

xtables-addons-dkms:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 3.13-1+deb11u1
  Version table:
     3.23-1 -10
        -10 http://deb.debian.org/debian testing/main amd64 Packages
     3.13-1+deb11u1 990
        990 http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye/main amd64 Packages

Due to my preferences-file it is listed with "-10".
But in devuan (experimental in sources):

xtables-addons-dkms:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 3.13-1+deb11u1
  Version table:
     3.13-1+deb11u1 500
        500 http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera/main amd64 Packages

After your reply, I tried a deeper search and found 'testing' mentioned, without explicit link.
Entered it in the source list and updated - seems to be present!
But does NOT list xtables-addons-dkms, the list above stays the same which lead me
to "individual package install".
BTW, while trying this, the 'experimental' disappeard!

BTW, the mentioned bug, according to the mailinglist debate,
has been fixed in 2020(!!), but never came into the repositories.
Continues the pain with the old patch-o-matic (10 years ago).
Has nothing to do with "willing", I have not the competition
to build a security relevant package.

Though I am trying, I'll make an exception and download the
package - can you give a hint? The daedalus or the ceres version?
I looked to the packages and it needs "xtables-addons-common (>= 3.23)",
which is also not in the repository (has 3.13) .....

Regards,
Manfred

Re: Searching package xtables-addons-dkms

Testing in Devuan is called Daedalus: https://www.devuan.org/os/releases
