• Antefree isn't disastrous

    Hi Antepeople ☺ ,

    In Antefree you may miss the convenience of precompiled packages, which were available from removed [antergos] repo.

    Though most of them are available from AUR, you may dislike to have AUR packages in the system.

    No worries. We can replace [antergos] with other third-party repos.

    I use [disastrousaur] for years. Despite of its name, it’s very reliable. No disasters, not a single problem with it. The repo is shortly described in Unofficial user repositories article in ArchWiki.

    There are hundreds of packages in the repo, including most of those from [antergos].

    Let’s add [disastrousaur] to Antefree. The steps are:

    1. Import maintainer’s key
    2. Verify key’s fingerprint
    3. Locally sign the key
    4. Add the repo to pacman.conf
    5. Force databases update

    In details.

    1. Import maintainer’s key


    sudo pacman-key --recv-keys CBAE582A876533FD


    └─> dt && sudo pacman-key --recv-keys CBAE582A876533FD
    Current datetime:
    2019-07-06 15:41:15
    gpg: key CB8DA19D1551E92F: 1 duplicate signature removed
    gpg: key CB8DA19D1551E92F: 1 signature reordered
    gpg: key CB8DA19D1551E92F: public key "XDFR Alliance Signing (Felix Golatofski) <[email protected]>" imported
    gpg: Total number processed: 1
    gpg:               imported: 1
    ==> Updating trust database...
    gpg: next trustdb check due at 2019-10-03

    Proceed with verifying the key.

    2. Verify the fingerprint


    sudo pacman-key --finger CBAE582A876533FD


    └─> dt && sudo pacman-key --finger CBAE582A876533FD
    Current datetime:
    2019-07-06 15:44:51
    pub   ed25519 2018-10-21 [SC]
          79A6 40BD 69FF 4388 3865  4415 CB8D A19D 1551 E92F
    uid           [ unknown] XDFR Alliance Signing (Felix Golatofski) <[email protected]>
    sub   cv25519 2018-10-21 [E]

    Next, locally sign the key as trusted.

    3. Locally sign the imported key


    sudo pacman-key --lsign-key CBAE582A876533FD


    └─> dt && sudo pacman-key --lsign-key CBAE582A876533FD
    Current datetime:
    2019-07-06 15:49:13
      -> Locally signing key CBAE582A876533FD...
    ==> Updating trust database...
    gpg: marginals needed: 3  completes needed: 1  trust model: pgp
    gpg: depth: 0  valid:   1  signed:   9  trust: 0-, 0q, 0n, 0m, 0f, 1u
    gpg: depth: 1  valid:   9  signed:  83  trust: 1-, 0q, 0n, 8m, 0f, 0u
    gpg: depth: 2  valid:  75  signed:  14  trust: 75-, 0q, 0n, 0m, 0f, 0u
    gpg: next trustdb check due at 2019-10-03

    We now trust the key to sign packages. We can add the repo and get the list of its packages.

    4. Add the repo to pacman.conf

    Edit /etc/pacman.conf. Add the repo at the bottom of the file, below all standard Arch repos.

    #--just added.
    #--place the repo
    #--at the lowest
    Server = https://mirror.repohost.de/$repo/$arch

    The repo uses default Arch SigLevel = Required DatabaseOptional, so setting SigLevel for this repo is not neccessary.

    Save /etc/pacman.conf

    5. Force local databases update


    sudo pacman -Syy


    └─> dt && sudo pacman -Syy
    Current datetime:
    2019-07-06 15:52:24

    6. List all available packages

  • @just said in Antefree isn't disastrous:

    Let’s add [disastrousaur] to Antefree. The steps are:

    Import maintainer’s key
    Verify key’s fingerprint
    Locally sign the key

    Was using it happily based on your tutorial here, but as of today i get this error:

    I tried refreshing the keys: sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys. It didn’t fix the issue.
    Then I tried the following:

    pacman-key --list-sigs XDFR
    gpg: Note: trustdb not writable
    pub   ed25519 2018-10-21 [SC]
    uid           [  full  ] XDFR Alliance Signing (Felix Golatofski) <[email protected]>

    sub   cv25519 2018-10-21 [E]
    sig          CB8DA19D1551E92F 2018-10-21  XDFR Alliance Signing (Felix Golatofski) <[email protected]>

    then i tried these commands

    sudo pacman-key --delete 79A640BD69FF438838654415CB8DA19D1551E92F
    sudo pacman-key --recv-keys 79A640BD69FF438838654415CB8DA19D1551E92F
    sudo pacman-key --lsign-key 79A640BD69FF438838654415CB8DA19D1551E92F
    sudo pacman-key --lsign-key CB8DA19D1551E92F
    sudo pacman-key --lsign-key 64034912EF57F523

    The above commands executed successfully, they keys have been signed locally, but I still cannot perform a system update, the error is still error: disastrousaur: signature from "XDFR Alliance Signing (Felix Golatofski) <[email protected]>" is invalid
    and sudo pacman-key -f xdfr returns:

    pub   ed25519 2018-10-21 [SC]
          79A6 40BD 69FF 4388 3865  4415 CB8D A19D 1551 E92F

    Any idea how to fix this?

  • @nate_x said in Antefree isn't disastrous:

    …as of today i get this error:

    I’m in vacation now. Without computers, without Arch, almost without Internet. Unfortunately, can’t do much from tablets only. Will investigate deeper in next days, when I’ll be in the city for a few hours. Sorry.

    Don’t worry, it’s impossible to forget about the issue, because I should get the same error on the first upgrade.

  • ArchWiki warns about the fact that [disastrousaur] is currently under maintenance. It also states that inconveniences will be solved “in next week”. The warning is there for some months now. The “next week” is not clearly defined.

    As a temporarily workaround it is possible to switch off checks for repo’s key. Simply add below the repo’s name (in square brackets) and above the server’s address (with URL) one more line:

    SigLevel = Optional TrustAll

    The error message should disappear, once the line is added. The line may be removed later, when | if the error with the key will be solved.

  • thank you for this. hope you’re enjoying your vacation :)

  • Adding the SigLevel did not fix this issue for me.

  • @just
    Hello there,
    the maintainer of disastrousaur here. I got mail regarding the issues you are experiencing here. First things first. I do had a warning in the unofficial repos article of Arch Linux. But it was obsolete and I’ve changed it to an advise for people which did not see the previous one. The issues you’ve been experiencing were caused by me removing packages I was not allowed to build, cuz of license-changes made by corporations (e.g. Oracle).
    Therefore the database signature got messed up and I fixed it just now . If you are experiencing any further problems while using my repository feel free to contact me via email (Look it up via my signing key for the repo).

    Kind regards,
    Felix (TheGoliath)

  • @thegoliath Thank you very much for kind explanation and detailed description of what was happened.

    [disastrousaur] works without a problem again.

    I was about to respond that few minutes ago I upgraded some Arch systems without any problem. All systems use your repo. An example:

    :: Synchronizing package databases...
     core                     132.5 KiB  8.08M/s 00:00 [---------] 100%

     Foreign packages: | 4 / 4

    I didn’t know how to explain the fact that there were some problems with your key a few days ago, but now (2019.08.01 12:20 local time) [disastrousaur] works perfectly again.

    Your post explains everything.

    Thanks again

  • A quick question here, why do all other repos have their own entry but disastrousaur has two? what’s with the .sig thing? it prickles my OCD a bit :)
    And another one:
    I’ve commented the diastrousaurus repo out because of the issues i’ve experienced with the keys, so i could do a system update. At that point a few packages went ahead and updated themselves from AUR. Now i’ve added it back, but I see this:

    warning: pamac-aur: local (8.0.3-1) is newer than disastrousaur (8.0.2-1)
    warning: slack-desktop: local (4.0.1-1) is newer than disastrousaur (4.0.0-1)
    warning: tor-browser: local (8.5.4-1) is newer than disastrousaur (8.5.3-1)

    Are the apps in the repo stale for security reason or is this just a maintenance thing “I update when my spare time allows…”?

  • @nate_x said in Antefree isn't disastrous:

    …what’s with the .sig thing?..

    There were very long discussions about .sig in various forums. The most useful was in Arch forum some years ago.

    If I understood correctly, a definitive answer was not found.

    Again, if I didn’t misunderstand, it happens for signed repos only - but not always, - and is due to not very correct work of some mirrors.

    At that time, I was satisfied with this explanation.

    .sig aren’t real repos, they are void (empty), don’t contain any package. Their presence is harmless.

  • @nate_x said in Antefree isn't disastrous:

    …At that point a few packages went ahead and updated themselves from AUR…

    Obviously, I can’t respond for repo’s maintainer. But slightly newer AUR pkgs is a quite common thing for most precompiled 3rd-party repos.

    As you know, AUR doesn’t have any package at all. You compile a package from sources, on your local computer, according to instructions contained in PKGBUILDs.

    Repo’s maintainer must do all that job for us. He must follow the most recent sources versions, compile them on his hardware, must distribute compiled pkgs to server(s) and mirror(s).

    PKGBUILDs in AUR practically don’t require any maintenance at all. Arch repos are maintained by hundreds of people. Most 3rd-party repos are maintained by one person.

    Keeping everything up-to-date seems to be rather big job for one maintainer.

  • Good evening (or night here in Germany xd),
    yes, I know that some packages are out of date. I’ll do some updates tomorrow. I stopped my update automation of the repo for maintenance purposes (oracle jdk etc). So you might see some shiny updates tomorrow. Secondly. The .sig repo is basically the signature file for the database itself. My repository is SigLevel = Signed
    Even the database itself is signed. That’s why you get that additional “void repo”. And that’s also what caused you all to stumble while updating. The signature for the database was not valid.

    I’ll go to bed now and answer later today.
