New Website and Online Repository available

I was having problems with the previous website because it was almost always offline.

I was looking for an alternative hosting to store the repository and then I also decided to migrate the blog to this new website.

For use the online repository, you need to connect the PS3 to the internet, open a lxterminal and download the file:

wget http://redribbongnulinux.000webhostapp.com/downloads/online-update-2016-03-18.sh

Then, you can execute it:

sudo sh online-update-2016-03-18.sh

  1. Hello when i try to update I receive a missing public key error for the files after check.

    • Hi,

      Thank you very much for the warning. 🙂

      I have fixed it and reuploaded the script. Please download and run it again.

      Sorry for the inconvenience.

      Regards

  2. This seems to be broken now:

    sed: -e expression #1, char 62: unknown option to `s’

    Package debian-keyring is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package ‘debian-keyring’ has no installation candidate

    • Hi,

      • Tried this also yesterday, didn’t work. Just thought to give feedback. Still get the same errors as AnonAnon.

      • There seem to be multiple problems with the script.

        1) first key adding works, second fails, it’s the one for your multimedia and download directory on your server. Browsing to the first gpg key works, the second doesn’t exist
        2) after “sudo apt-get update” it’s impossible to add http://redribbongnulinux.000webhostapp.com/apt/dists/jessie/main/binary-powerpc/Packages as repository: always “hash sum mismatch”. There exist workarounds but none helps in your case. Browsing the URL works, though. Spent the whole Saturday trying to fix your script, giving up
        3) due to the problem from 2) the URL never is used in /apt/list/sources.list Thus, it’s impossible to search the repo for packages
        4) last night I tried to find a way to download the packages via the aforementioned URL. Couldn’t find a solution

        Please fix!

        Also, your server doesn’t seem very reliable. I can offer you a way shorter URL and also want to provide a mirror for the repo. It’ll be free for you, just drop me a line! 🙂

        All the best
