Testing repo updates


Several things have been added to the testing repo lately.

I finally got around to adding Midori 8.0. I am calling it 8.1 because I have used the version in git. Has a few changes I want.

I also added efl 1.21.1 as well as python-efl 1.21 and python3-efl 1.21. PLease if you test anything test these as we hope to update to efl 1.21 on our next release.

I also made packages for the documentation for efl 1.21 and python-efl 1.21. I placed these in the main repo tho, as there is no harm in installing them.

Thanks

Uncertain, just hoping some of our users do at least still test things. It is hard to know with no feedback. But really these sort of posts seldom got much feedback.

sb?

I just installed the new EFL. I'd already installed the test moksha. Even if I installed Midori I probably wouldn't want to test it as I'm happy with my browser, but I did briefly test one of the other new versions a while ago and saw it was significantly more usable than what came with bodhi originally, so glad that's getting updated.

NP, and yes it is dangerous. Stuff in testing (mostly moksha or efl) may be unstable or cause issues.

We all appreciate what the devs are doing - many thanks. I'm afraid testing is beyond me too, but I'm looking forward to installing 5.1 on the newish machine I've recently been given.

Would anyone be kind enough to provide the link to the Testing Repo?

I've searched for Bodhi "Testing Repo" here on LinuxQuestions, then on the SourceForge page, even went so far as to to opening the Bodhi Facebook page, and no luck.

I think it's in the Forum, somewhere, but with the way the new forum is organized it's sometimes hard to find things.

Maybe when a post mentions "Testing Repo" it would be possible to make that term into a hyperlink?

I finally found it after half-an-hour of searching the internet with DDG. Still don't know where it is in LinuxQuestions or from the Bodhi home page. But here it is, for anyone else having the same problem.
As you can tell from following the link, I was looking for the new Midori file.

OK, at one point in time our old forum had a pinned post detailing how to add the testing repo. That info is dated tho. Regardless, it is not hard to figure out ... open the file /etc/apt/sources.list and examine it.

But anyways I hear you. So I took the time to create a wiki on the subject: Bodhi’s Testing repository. It still needs proof read and everything verified that it works properly. In time tho it will gain some 'google juice' and show up in searches.

@rbtylee
Actually, I used 'Duck Juice' to find it, but that does not sound so appetizing.

Maybe 'Duck sauce' or 'Duck gravy'? The last one isn't so bad, in fact, sounding better all the time. Not a Google fan, here, I'm afraid ...

Ah, yes, I must have been remembering the 'Pinned Post'. No wonder I couldn't find it by searching this forum. But the Wiki post is clearer and more detailed than a 'Pinned Post'. Thanks so much for taking the time to do a good job.

Testing repo updates

I just enabled the testing repo using the wiki link provided - Moksha seems to load more quickly and Midori v 9 works well. I have not noticed significant differences in Terminology, but it's working as expected also.
When I try to load Synaptic from Preferences, I get an error msg that Moksha was unable to run the application synaptic-pkexec - the application failed to start. When I run sudo synaptic from Terminology, the package manager loads as expected.

Just a brief note on this the testing repo is using efl 1.22.2 but there seems to be an issue with all efl versions equal to or greater than 1.22. This issue causes segfaults when displaying certain icons of a certain form stored in a specific location. I only know of 3 apps with this issue. Details really not that important for the average user to know. Naturally, I have been working a little bit with Raster on this issue, but not much luck getting it fixed so far.

Therefore, in all likelihood for bodhi 5.1 I will be using efl 1.21.1. As that version of efl doesn't have that problem. Unless of course the enlightenment devs get to the root cause of this issue and we have a fix whether the fix is an efl patch or a moksha change.

The pkexec issue is unrelated to moksha changes or anything in the testing repo. It is a well known issue with the way esudo is packaged. Multiple post on this forum giving two different ways of fixing this issue. That will also be addressed in the 5.1 release.

Thanks for testing and the feedback.
