Now Safe to Update or Build Ryde

Post by G8GKQ » Tue Jun 21, 2022 3:05 pm

If you updated your Ryde today, it will not receive anything due to an update to VLC which has broken the way that Ryde works.

If you have already updated, or need to build a new card, entering the code below will fix it.

The first segment (which rolls back to the previous version of VLC) is a series of lines that the RPi reads as one line due to the \ markers at the end of each visual line:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get --allow-downgrades -y install vlc=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3 \
libvlc-bin=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3 \
libvlc5=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3 \
libvlccore9=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3 \
vlc-bin=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3 \
vlc-data=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3 \
vlc-plugin-base=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3 \
vlc-plugin-qt=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3 \
vlc-plugin-video-output=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3 \
vlc-l10n=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3 \
vlc-plugin-notify=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3 \
vlc-plugin-samba=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3 \
vlc-plugin-skins2=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3 \
vlc-plugin-video-splitter=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3 \
vlc-plugin-visualization=3.0.12-0+deb10u1+rpt3
The second segment is 15 individual commands to prevent the problem recurring:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-mark hold vlc
sudo apt-mark hold libvlc-bin
sudo apt-mark hold libvlc5
sudo apt-mark hold libvlccore9
sudo apt-mark hold vlc-bin
sudo apt-mark hold vlc-data
sudo apt-mark hold vlc-plugin-base
sudo apt-mark hold vlc-plugin-qt
sudo apt-mark hold vlc-plugin-video-output
sudo apt-mark hold vlc-l10n
sudo apt-mark hold vlc-plugin-notify
sudo apt-mark hold vlc-plugin-samba
sudo apt-mark hold vlc-plugin-skins2
sudo apt-mark hold vlc-plugin-video-splitter
sudo apt-mark hold vlc-plugin-visualization
I will build these into the build and update scripts in the next few days.

I have just released a new build of Ryde (202206280) that includes the fixes for this VLC problem. So it is now safe to update, or start new builds, of Ryde.

If you updated (or new-built) during the period when there was the problem, a further update should restore normal service. Simply go into the console menu and select update.

Please report any issues here.
