Using cauldron or testing packages in mageia 7 beta2

Postby adhefe » Mar 14th, '19, 16:15

I need to make use of packages that are not yet in mageia 7 beta2 "stable" repositories.

I can see them in mageia 7 debug repos (marked as debuginfo) and in cauldron repos.

I want to give them a try since I need them. What is the best option, mageia 7 debug or cauldron repos?

Thanks

mageia 7 beta 2 is just a snapshot of cauldron and uses cauldron repositories, and there are no "stable" cauldron repositories.
Also the debuginfo packages just add debug symbols to normal packages, there always has to be a base package, without it there's no matching debuginfo package.

Would be helpful if you would mention what packages you are referring to in particular.

Now I'm looking for texlive, texstudio packages...

Do you mean there must exist a texstudio (not debuginfo) in mageia 7 beta2 core/tainted?

I used MCC => Configuring media => Add media (I've translated to english) and some more repositories was included. Now I can see texstudio is available. That is, the set of repos mageia's installer configures by default does not contain all the available packages ...

Is it correct?

Well, core/release is the main repository which is always added. Although the mirror you were using mighr have been not completely synced or was syncing at the time you tried to install it, this is happening pretty frequently for cauldron.

You should probably mention which repositories you do currently have.
Code: Select all
urpmq --list-media active --list-url

But this output was obtained after adding media via MCC.

Couldn't find a package for localization of texstudio like

texstudio-l10n

Is it because this is still a beta release?

Right above Core Updates should be where Core Release should be.

No, that is because the localications are contained in the main texstudio package.

TexStudio can be set to use my language but I think it is supposed to use it even if it is set to use the default language ...
