Code: Select all

network-manager depends on libnm0 (= 1.20.2-1); however:
  Version of libnm0:powerpc on system is 1.14.6-2.
Please install the latest libnm0.

Download: libnm0_1.20.2-1_powerpc.deb

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

Thanks, with that the whole installation advanced normally! Network is also working now :-).

Run also all the available updates for Fienix... Only some Python packages seemed to have dependency problems and were not configured.

Great! :-)

@Casey
Could you please add the following packages to the Fienix repository?
Thanks

Absolutely, I'll add them tonight.
Do you think these should be included in the base install?

I noticed this also. I ran "dpkg --configure -a" right after the upgrade and it fixed all the issues, so I'm having a hard time figuring out why they're happening in the first place. Try running "dpkg --configure -a" as su if you still have unconfigured packages.

Unfortunately Mate terminal does not start anymore after the latest updates... How can I get the PangoTerm you mentioned? It was not in the Fienix depot.

Have you updated your kernel? The only one I've found to have that issue is 4.19.65. Maybe try 5.3? Do you know how to upgrade your kernel? I can give you a step-by-step if you want to try!

I was using 4.19.53. Tested now 4.20.17, it does not have the therminal issue! I think there is not yet an initrd for 5.3, so I will use 4.20 as it works with the initrd for 4.19. I prefer to operate with the partition labels...

Fine! IMHO network manager should definitely be in the base install as it seems to solve the network problems.
