Posted by mariusc80 on Jan. 06 2008,17:31I'm trying to install mydsl extensions from a remote system using display export.
I have the XServer from cygwin ... with xhost + ... and my firewall behaves.
On the DSL server:
- I don't have a video card on the system (plugged one in when I installed)
- I was able to install some stuff when I was logged in w/ graphic mode on the system ... after I just installed
- don't really want to put the graphic card on just to install something.
Posted by mariusc80 on Jan. 06 2008,17:38Forgot to mention that MyDSL Extension Tool starts.
I click on Load Local.
Go to the dir where I downloaded the extension and select it.
Then the application crashes and spits the error I mentioned in the previous post.
If I try to use the application groups, I get another error:
but the application doesn't crash.
Is there a better way to install the extensions from command line ... is there a command line interface?
I think I tried mydsl-load but it didn't work.
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Jan. 06 2008,21:21What version of DSL?
If that doesn't work, what are the permissions on that file?
Posted by roberts on Jan. 06 2008,21:55Command line options for mydsl:
You can use the full path on the command line to load a local extension.
You can use the command line to fetch, checksum, and load with
mydsl-load gcc1-with-libs.dsl system
The second argument is the repository section, i.e., system
Or if you just want download and checksum, but not load use:
mydsl-wget gcc1-with-libs.dsl system
Both mydsl-load & mydsl-wget use the server specified in /opt/.dslrc which is set by the Select Mirror gui or manual edit.
You should keep all your extensions in the mydsl/ directory and have proper permissons there.
Posted by mariusc80 on Jan. 06 2008,22:26Thanks,
Using mydsl-load worked ... I think it worked before but the I just called it without a parameter, and passed the path when prompted in the console
Since I didn't see any output ... I assumed it didn't work.
Wanted to add the info to the wiki ... but it seems that there was some info in there ...

I'm not too sure why the .lua doesn't work though.

Any idea why this is happening ?
in the .dslrc file
