Can't download from GPP

I am trying to build a new Ltib install and when it tries to get the patch package from bitshrine.org it returns a 404 error. I tried to download patch-2.5.4.tar.gz from the webbrowser and it is not found either. There are several other packages with the same problem (boa ethtool fbv netcat unzip time et.al.). I was thinking this may be caused by a new version uploaded to the GPP but you can't see a listing of the package files because the index.html file is hiding them. I also noticed that bitshrine.org/xpp works instead of bitshrine.org/gpp. This breaks the standard Ltib config but is easy to fix in the .ltibrc file. Has anyone else had problems like this lately with Ltib at bitshrine.org?

FYI - all,

I had the same problems with LTIB in the beginning.  I was informed by frreescale that the PPP URL referred to is PRIVATE and only available to internal freescale personnel.  Why that is, I have no idea, but it is.

 

I made the following changes to the referenced two files, and no longer had the problem.

 

in .ltibrc

@# This is a list of the package pools to use (whitespace separated inc newline)

 

I cahnged the lines as shown.  This removes the PPP URL from the search equation.  It seems that if the first search fails, it doesn't look for the other.

%pps
gpp
#ppp

# The URL of the PPP (Private Package Pool) private code repository
#%ppp_url
#http://auslxsc01.mtwk.freescale.net/ppp/

# The URL of the GPP (Global Package Pool) master code repository
%gpp_url
http://bitshrine.org/gpp/

 

in ltib

@ spoof_path   => "$bdir/ltib/usr/spoof",

 

Imade the follwoewing changes:

    pps          => "gpp",
    gpp_url      => "http://bitshrine.org/gpp/",
    ppp_url      => "",

After making these changes, I didn't have any problem downloading and building the packages I needed.

 

If you try to build a package that is not supported by LTIB, then you have other cahnges to make to add the device to the selection list and the package list.

 

I have had NO problems building packages that are not supported by LTIB due to lack of MD5 Checksums.  However, mind the patches.

In my case, i think the problem is that library (isbc_cst_4.tar.gz)
is not exist any more. Connection looks OK.

What can I do now? Can I build offline?

Processing: cst

=================

Build path taken because: no prebuilt rpm,

Testing network connectivity

OK GPP:

Try isbc_cst_4.tar.gz.md5 from the GPP

http://bitshrine.org/gpp/isbc_cst_4.tar.gz.md5:

18:56:27 ERROR 404: Not Found.

Try isbc_cst_4.tar.gz from the GPP

http://bitshrine.org/gpp/isbc_cst_4.tar.gz:

18:56:27 ERROR 404: Not Found.

Can't get: isbc_cst_4.tar.gz at ./ltib line 791.

Hi Chen,

I have not found a really good solution to this problem. I have resorted to making my own PPP on a local server and I downloaded all the packages I need there. You can change your %gpp_url in .ltibrc to XPP but it doesn't seem to make a difference when you cannot reach the site or the package is missing. You can also try to increase the timeout period in ltib to be longer. That will give the website more time to respond to your wget request. Until Freescale can come up with a better host site for their repository, I think it will continue to be a problem with bitshrine.org downloads.

Hi Mike,

 

I've also had problems getting packages from the GPP. I had to individually google and download them from some sites. Here are few good ones :

http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/6.3/chapter03/packages.html (with MD5 checksums)

http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/6.3/

http://www.filewatcher.com/

 

I found your "patch" also on http://www.filewatcher.com/m/patch-2.5.4.tar.gz.186879.0.0.html . Only problem is they are without MD5 checksums (so...may be dangerous)

 

Btw, where did you exactly change to XPP in .ltibrc ? %gpp_url ?

Hi Mike,

 

I am facing the same problem when trying to configure ltib for the first time on my host. Did you make any progress with solving this problem ?

 

Thanks,

Chen
