» smart-0.42-3 and amarok-beta

New smart packages are available: 0.42-3 I've added a workaround for some broken repositories that provide packages that miss Summary: or %description While I haven't been able to reproduce it myself (and thus, no idea what repository that is), it happened to someone on #suse. The patch hasn't been submitted to upstream yet. I've also included my x86_64 package election optimization patch (see here for more details), as I have been running it successfully on my own system and will hence be removing my experimental smart repository. Yesterday, I've built new amarok packages (1.4.2-beta1, with 1.4.2 final currently being scheduled for mid-august) and tried a new package naming scheme. The package is called amarok-beta-1.4.2beta1 (instead of amarok-1.4.2beta1), in order to avoid everyone being pushed a beta when doing smart upgrade ;) You have to explicitly tell your package manager that you want to install amarok-beta in order to get it. As it is my first attempt at such a naming scheme, please send me feedback about whether it works for you or not (especially if it doesn't) - btw, please do so by email instead of posting comments on my blog.

Hi Pascal,

"btw, please do so by email instead of posting comments on my blog"

Noted, ;) But if you could have a time to reply.

Why your new packages are not reflected in 'Smart' database? Maybe need add some extra channels?

Tnx,
DimiG

Hi, I am using smart from your repository but trying to upgrade to .42 (from .41) yields this message from smart :

Can't install smart-0.42-5.guru.suse101@i686: no package provides python-elementtree

Any idea why ?
