Ubuntu PPA for Firefox 4.0b2 – Tested & Working :-)

leave a comment »

The latest firefox without the update hassle.
One daily a month from ubuntu-mozilla-daily.

  • One update a month.
  • Firefox and xulrunner only.
  • Tested in a virtual machine.

Firefox has its own PPA so nothing else gets updated.
You don’t get swamped with updates.
You do get the latest Firefox each month.

______________________________

Firefox-4.0 – One Daily A Month #1 – Lucid

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:silverwave/one-daily-a-month-1
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firefox-4.0

Firefox-4.0 – One Daily A Month #3 – Karmic

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:silverwave/one-daily-a-month-3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firefox-4.0

______________________________

All tested and working

Based on:

4.0~b2~hg20100712r47317+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd2
2.0~b2~hg20100712r47317+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1

Enjoy!

One Daily A Month – The latest firefox without the update hassle.

leave a comment »

One downside of using ubuntu-mozilla-daily is the number of updates offered.
Another is that packages other than Firefox are present in the PPA.

This is my solution.
________________________________________

One daily a month from ubuntu-mozilla-daily.

.

  • One ppa for each Firefox.
  • Updated at the start of each month.
  • Tested in a virtual machine.

Firefox-3.6.5 or Firefox-3.7a5(aka Firefox-4) via One Daily A Month.

Firefox-3.6 – one-daily-a-month-0 – Lucid

Listing latest published packages in a PPA

leave a comment »

OK so now I have a way of listing the latest published packages in a PPA. :-)

The key is that I can specify the series e.g. lucid or karmic and get results for each.

Note: Learning python as I go… :-)
Yes a better function is called for but this will do for now.

Advantages over the web interface:
It is easy to see the 8 packages I am interested in (out of the 50 in the ppa).
I can also quickly confirm when all the packages have been built (I just check the date).

___

Code

#! /usr/bin/env python

from launchpadlib.launchpad import Launchpad
launchpad = Launchpad.login_with('bot100', 'edge')

distro = launchpad.distributions["ubuntu"]
ppa = launchpad.people['ubuntu-mozilla-daily'].archive

def getPS(seri, source):
    series = distro.getSeries(name_or_version = seri)

    last_app = ppa.getPublishedSources(
		exact_match=True,
		source_name=source,
		distro_series=series
		)[0]
    apptemp = last_app.source_package_version

    print apptemp
    return apptemp

appff10 = getPS('lucid','firefox')
appff20 = getPS('lucid','firefox-3.7')
appff30 = getPS('lucid','xulrunner-1.9.2')
appff40 = getPS('lucid','xulrunner-1.9.3')
print
appff1 = getPS('karmic','firefox')
appff2 = getPS('karmic','firefox-3.7')
appff3 = getPS('karmic','xulrunner-1.9.2')
appff4 = getPS('karmic','xulrunner-1.9.3')

___

Results:

$ ./lp-getPublishedSources_one-daily-a-month.py
3.6.5~hg20100428r34143+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1

Launchpad syncSources missing “from series”

leave a comment »

OK a new project involving PPA’s, Launchpad, launchpadlib, Soyuz.

Lets start documenting some of this stuff while its fresh.

Tag the project “onedailyamonth” so I can find it later.

This may be a rather brutal introduction to python for me…
Oh well learning something new is always fun :-)

It works… everything else is bonus points.

Onwards…

$ python
##Start up the Launchpad command line.
>>> from launchpadlib.launchpad import Launchpad

##Start up your application and login.
launchpad = Launchpad.login_with('bot100', 'edge')
##Authorise the app in Launchpad and away you go...

Run the script or paste each command in turn to test it.

#! /usr/bin/env python

from launchpadlib.launchpad import Launchpad
launchpad = Launchpad.login_with('bot100', 'edge')

{{{
    from_archive = launchpad.people['ubuntu-mozilla-daily'].archive
    to_archive = launchpad.me.getPPAByName(name='one-daily-a-month')
    sources_to_be_copied = ['firefox','xulrunner-1.9.2']
    print to_archive.syncSources(
        source_names=sources_to_be_copied,
        from_archive=from_archive,
        to_pocket='release',
        to_series=None,include_binaries=True,
        )
    sources_to_be_copied = ['firefox-3.7', 'xulrunner-1.9.3']
    to_archive = launchpad.me.getPPAByName(name='one-daily-a-month-1')
    print to_archive.syncSources(
        source_names=sources_to_be_copied,
        from_archive=from_archive,
        to_pocket='release',
        to_series=None,
        include_binaries=True,
        )
}}}

This is great except it will not do a series, e.g. karmic, separately :-(
“API for copying packages (syncSources) needs a “from series” parameter” Bug #493914

So I will need to use syncSource instead.

This further means, that I will need a way to find the specific version name, for each of the packages.

Looking at the examples gives me something I can use…

“Listing the current package versions in a particular distroseries” here API/Examples.

OK we have a plan :-)

Note: Using the launchpad API for copying

Celso Providelo said on 2009-03-20:

It will probably get too boring, at this point you might consider writing a script using the launchpad API for copying your stuff. Check the API guide at https://help.launchpad.net/API and try something along these lines:

{{{
    from_archive = launchpad.me.archive
    to_archive = launchpad.people['kde3-maintainers'].archive
    sources_to_be_copied = ['x', 'y', 'z']
    print to_archive.syncSources(
        source_names=sources_to_be_copied,
        from_archive=from_archive,
        to_pocket='release',
        to_series=None,
        include_binaries=True,
        )
}}}

Note: getPublishedSources

Celso Providelo

Sources can be found, basically, by name, version, distroseries and status by calling getPublishedSources on a target archive.

When it run, the output is:

firefox-3.5 3.5~b4~hg20090415r24712+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1 in jaunty

 >>> def test_source_lookup(lp):
     ppa = lp.people['ubuntu-mozilla-daily'].archive
     ubuntu = lp.distributions['ubuntu']
     jaunty = ubuntu.getSeries(name_or_version='jaunty')
     last_firefox = ppa.getPublishedSources(
         source_name='firefox-3.5', status='Published', distro_series=jaunty,
         exact_match=True)[0]
     print last_firefox.displayname

______________________________

Note: displayname gives an error message, use this instead:

print last_firefox.source_package_version
