View Full Version : [SOLVED] packages.ubuntu.com not listing all packages?

So for a while I've been searching for packages in Maverick to see if stuff is getting updates, and sometimes it comes back with no results found.

Example:
preload
audacious
lyx
deluge
bootchart

There are others but it was a while ago so I don't remember.

Is there a reason why some packages that are found in karmic/lucid are not shown in maverick?

I was gonna check to see if preload had any fixes since it hasn't worked since Jaunty (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/preload/+bug/299361).

While I'm at it (instead of bumping another thread) if some people could see if preload works in Maverick that would be great.

I don't know why packages.ubuntu.com's search doesn't work for those... maybe because they haven't been explicitly uploaded to maverick yet. They are all there though.

For what it's worth I've been running preload since probably 2007 or so and haven't noticed anything broken. Guess i've been lucky.

I just notice your post on that bug... seems it is probably working fine for you, but the default verbosity level for logging changed at some point during the karmic dev cycle to not show that Using 1234kb message.

I had to specify the -V option in /etc/defaults/preload to get the message back.


OPTIONS="-V 5 -l /var/log/preload.log"

Hope that helps.

Thanks!!! That worked.

The correct location of the file is
/etc/default/preload

But not acting same as before (9.04). I am now getting

Before it would just update the size and # of files. But at least this shows it is working. Maybe this is just a new way of displaying info.

Any news why programs and nothing is showing up when searching?

I'm forced to check packages.debian.org and assume it will be updated into ubuntu.

Is this the same problem as accessing http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/ always resulting in this error?


Error
more than one suite specified for show_static (dapper dapper-updates dapper-backports hardy hardy-updates hardy-backports intrepid intrepid-updates intrepid-backports jaunty jaunty-updates jaunty-backports karmic karmic-updates karmic-backports lucid)


Edit: BTW, I have been checking the maverick upload queue (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/maverick/+queue) for "Done" items to track packages in Ubuntu.

I'm happy to inform others that it looks like packages.ubuntu.com is working for maverick.

I just searched for intel drivers and others and they show up, so I assume everything else does.

9.10 shipped with 2.9.0
10.04 shipped with 2.9.1
10.10 will ship with 2.12.0

So should be a big difference in drivers for intel users if upgrading from any ubuntu release. So going from 2.9.1->2.10(skipped)->2.11(skipped)->2.12 should be nice. Same can be said for linux kernel.

I'm interested to see Audacious using 2.4.0 RC2
Glad to see deluge updated to 1.3.0RC2
Sad to see scribusng not updated since 2009.

Lots of updated software for 10.10! :)

This is a good thing.
