Add arm64 build to PPA


(Pander) #1

I have installed and updated synthing from the PPA on Ubuntu 16.10 amd64 and Raspbian 8 armhf. Other systems I have are PINE64 with Ubuntu 16.04. Downloading the precompiled arm64 build in .tar.gz works fine. Could teh arm64 please be added to the PPA so installing and updating is easier? Thanks.

The error now given by APT is:

apt-get update
Hit:1 http://ppa.launchpad.net/longsleep/ubuntu-pine64-flavour-makers/ubuntu xenial InRelease
Hit:2 http://ports.ubuntu.com xenial InRelease
Hit:3 http://ports.ubuntu.com xenial-updates InRelease

Reading package lists... Done
N: Skipping acquire of configured file 'release/binary-arm64/Packages' as repository 'https://apt.syncthing.net syncthing InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'arm64'

and would be solved by including the arm64 build in the PPA.

Might as well, please create an issue for it.

ObPedantry: “A Personal Package Archive (PPA) is a software repository for uploading source packages to be built and published as an APT repository by Launchpad.” - there are those as well out there, for legacy reasons. Our https://apt.syncthing.net is not one so I get confused when it’s referred to like this.

Thanks, I stand corrected and should have callled it the package repository. See the issue at https://github.com/syncthing/syncthing/issues/3894
