Issue with module assistant on debian


Hi all,

I was trying to use module assistant to install some pacakages and all was going well until I got to a point where I needed to 'fakesource' to get another module to run properly.

Apparently it downloaded a corrupted image. I couldn't find a way to tell Module-assistant to redownload it. Thats fine I thought, I just located it and deleted it (it should download again right?). Now module-assistant complains it can't find the file and I *still* can't get it to download.

Some examples of commands I have tried

Code:
debian:~# module-assistant get fakesource
fakesource, what is fakesource?
debian:~# module-assistant a-i fakesource
fakesource, what is fakesource?
debian:~# module-assistant clean
No package specified. STOP.
debian:~# module-assistant clean fakesource
fakesource, what is fakesource?
debian:~# module-assistant clean kernel-source-2.6.8.tar.bz2
kernel-source-2.6.8.tar.bz2, what is kernel-source-2.6.8.tar.bz2?
and the original error I got
Code:
debian:~# module-assistant fakesource
Experimental kernel source recreating method...
Getting source...
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
kernel-source-2.6.8 is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Extracting pristine kernel source, please wait...

bzip2: Data integrity error when decompressing.
        Input file = (stdin), output file = (stdout)

It is possible that the compressed file(s) have become corrupted.
You can use the -tvv option to test integrity of such files.

You can use the `bzip2recover' program to attempt to recover
data from undamaged sections of corrupted files.

tar: Read 4072 bytes from /usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.8.tar.bz2
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
the new error
Code:
debian:~# module-assistant fakesource
Experimental kernel source recreating method...
Getting source...
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
kernel-source-2.6.8 is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Extracting pristine kernel source, please wait...
tar: /usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.8.tar.bz2: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
Thanks for your assistance.

still no solution?

Amazing, this post is 5 years old and seems nothing has changed. I get the same error.

No package specified. STOP.

As much as I can read in the man page, clean is a general function. Seems to be broken by design. If you specify a package, nothing happens, no error.
module-assistant purge gives you an error, if you really want to do this? use --force.

When using --force, you get the same error as above.

Are these two options defunct by default in module-assistant and nobody cares?

I am just writing this, as nobody bothered to reply to this in 2005 (or nobody knew) and this is currently on Debian Squeeze and still no solution.

Is there an alternative to module-assistant?

Does anybody know where module-assistant puts the sources and where it compiles, so I can go and clean it up manually?

cheers

Markus
