jigdo 0.6.7(solaris8)/woody template: this is not a template
since debian-cd also is the official jigdo list I'd like to ask if following
break of jigdo-file (0.6.7) compiled under my solaris 8/sparc may be known with
other platforms: The jigdo templates of both woody sites debian and fsn.hu stop
jigdo-file with the error message:
jigdo-file make-image -t woody-i386-7.iso.template -j woody-i386-7.iso.jigdo
jigdo-file make-image: `woody-i386-7.iso.template' is not a template file
The same result I get using jigdo-file inside of jigdo-easy. Using jigdo-lite
doesn not come this far because it tries to overrite woody-i386-7.iso.jigdo
after it was loaded by itself. It reports that jigdo-file (called by itself)
should use --force. However it may fail the same way jigdo-easy does when using
My own port of jigdo-file with libdb3 from the solaris companion CD with free
software started fine as long as I compile without GUI (gcc 2.95.2). Since alle
templates and jigdo files show the same release (0.6.7) I cannot believe that
the woody templates are incompatible.
A look into the source of mkimage.cc simply tells me that the templates for
woody on both sites are not compatible or may have different headers.
Does this error appear sometimes on other platforms ? Are changes with the
templates and headers known (mailinglist does not show solaris/sparc ports) ? If
incompatibility is not the reason the error may depend on errors during the port
? Is there a chance to get a working port of jigdo-file on solaris ?
P.S: I ported already jigdo-port to solaris. And it may work with all
templates or it may not. But jigdo-easy stopped every woody download after hours
of downloads with the hint that files are missing. After many other tries of
different images with different ftp-sites failed over and over I gave up using
jigdo-port. Also hours of download files vanished and there was no file-cache.
Has a solaris port of jigdo never been tried or tested ? Am I the first ?
