    Hi All,

    I have two AntiX installations, one 32-bit and one 64-bit. They are both over a year old and I am using the testing repo. I have not been able to update either PC for more than a month. I will focus on the 64-bit installation here. First some preliminaries:

    E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.

    On the older 32-bit install, I tested this by installing the dependancy ‘kde-runtime’ which lead to the installation of a lot of packages and another dependancy. In addition, I am not even using KDE (am I?, using the standard DE).

    Am I simply going to have to wait until the testing packages are sorted out? Is there something else I should be doing?

    Any/all help is greatly appreciated.

    Why are you using/mixing antiX testing with debian stretch?

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    No repo changes were made by me. Upon installation, I indicated that I would like to use the ‘testing’ repo and that is it.

    Is it inappropriate? What should it be?

    Now you have a hybrid system, a mixture of antiX testing (using buster packages, mixed with debian old stable (antiX-16) and stretch.
    No wonder it is broken.

    TBH the best thing is to start afresh with a new install of antiX-17.1 and stick to the stable (default) repos.

    Thanks for the advice but, unless you tell me that this issue cannot be corrected, I prefer to fix this. The 32-bit system has nothing special on it but the 64-bit system has a commercial server on it which would be a pain to re-license. I plan to operate on the 32-bit system first. If that turns out ok, it will give me enough confidence to tackle the 64-bit system.

    In case you are wondering, my Linux knowledge level is high. I am a long-time Linux (and Mac and Windoze) developer and have been running rolling release, system-free distributions for years.

    To get started, my first question is: based on the ‘testing’ repos, what should the files ‘/etc/apt/sources.list.d/antix.list’ and ‘/etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list’ contain? My thoughts are:

    antix.list
    deb http://repo.antixlinux.com/testing testing main nosystemd
    deb-src http://repo.antixlinux.com/testing testing main nosystemd
    debian.list
    deb http://ftp.gr.debian.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
    deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free

    I am uncertain of the Debian multimedia repo (stable or testing). If I am using the testing repo for everything else, is it necessary to go with the testing multimedia repo?

    TIA

    Disable the multimedia repo.

    The other repos are ‘fine’ if you want to try it with Testing. Expect a lot of breakage. Good luck!

    The commands I entered at prefixed with ‘>’. I have attempted to get more detail of the held-back packages by using the ‘install’ operand. It is not clear with either one of these packages what I should be doing next.

    Any suggestions?

    I’m pleasantly surprised that the upgrade went so well.
    I would just leave the others for now.

    I am also pleasantly surprised that the upgrade went so smooth, thanks to you 🙂

    I will leave the two outstanding packages as you suggest.

    FYI: I am not sure what this means but this 32-bit PC is still showing antiX-16. Here is the output:

    Issue won’t change no matter how many times you dist-upgrade or stay current.

    It helps us identify original install. Mine for example which is current and dist-upgraded daily now for years.

    As roky says. This is my desktop.

    But on another partition

    cat /etc/antix-version

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.
