Rapt update failure


(Urban Hafner) #1

Hello,
so I tried to get rpkg working. I made the setup and installed it. But
when I wanted to do rapt update, I got this:

urban@fish:~$ rapt update
Looking for file dists/unstable/main/binary-i386-linux/Packages…
Getting file… done.
/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.7/rpkg/database.rb:51:in parse': private methodsplit’ called for nil (NoMethodError)
from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.7/rpkg/database.rb:46:in initialize' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.7/rpkg/database.rb:45:inopen’

from /usr/local/bin/rapt:14

It seem like it can’t get the Package file. Is it something with the
rpkg version (rpkg-0.3.pre4.tar.gz) or is it the server?

Well, most likely it is some stupid bug I managed to put in. :slight_smile:

Does the file available' exist in the dir you setup asvar’? This
lets you know whether the Packages file was downloaded.

Have you got writing permissions for the var' directory when you launchrapt update’?

It does exist but has a size of 0.

Have you got writing permissions for the var' directory when you launchrapt update’?

urban@fish:~$ cat .rpkgrc
source = http://www.allruby.com/rpkg unstable main
ext = /home/urban/lib/ruby/i686-linux
doc = /home/urban/lib/ruby/doc
lib = /home/urban/lib/ruby
test = /home/urban/lib/ruby/tests
var = /home/urban/lib/ruby/rpkg-var
bin = /home/urban/bin

As the whole thing is in my homedir I must have write permission.

Everything looks ok. I’m sending you offlist a new version that
prints more debugging information, please try that and we’ll hopefully
see where the thing stumbles.
