Newbie questions / Re: Installing a Newer Version than Synaptic Offers
« Last post by kd4e on August 01, 2021, 03:49:29 pm »
OK, understood.

One site lists their PPA version as Ubuntu/Debian.

The CHIRP site includes a Flatpak version so I guess that's the best way to get the most-current version?

https://trac.chirp.danplanet.com/chirp_daily/LATEST/

(Does using a Flatpak mean that I have to manually update that app, because it's not in system-wide Repository-based update?)

Thanks

You can't add ppa, it is for Ubuntu not for Debian.

I'm running SparkyLinux 5 Stable
Code: [Select]
SparkyLinux 5.15 (Nibiru)
The kernel version here is 5.1.16.   

I'm having some odd problems with memory use from the kernel.   
Code: [Select]
grep Slab /proc/meminfo  Seems to keep growing and growing. :(

I'd like to get a kernel current for this month.   

I am a sparkylinux donator, and I'm not sure what a simple way to do this, as I'm not on the rolling release.

Thank you in advance!

I tried to add this ...

"sudo apt-add-repository ppa:dansmith/chirp-snapshots"

Last line reads:

"aptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template for Sparky/Sid"

Is there a workaround, please?

Thanks

Entered "Flathub" into the duckduckgo-enabled Firefox browser and it's right there.

Of course that only covers what's been added to the Flathub repository.

I'll have to see if there's an electronics/radio related repository that keeps apps not in Flathub up to date.

Thanks!

Flatpak packages can be installed by flatpak, read the wiki page:

Thank you for your reply.

I'd not like to be dependent on nagging the Repository manager(s) for all of the niche apps I may want to use.

I don't see a Flatpak selection in Synaptic or APTus.

I'm not sure how to install CHIRP (or some other app) via Flatpak in SparkyLinux.

I'll keep notes so I don't ask my Newbie questions more than once.

Thanks!

There is no deb package so if you don't want ot install it from Debian repos, use flatpak instead.

Please allow me to restate my question ...

If I install CHIRP (or fldigi, or any other app) from the Repository can I then update it/them directly?

[The Repository versions are old.]

Or, does someone have to update the Repository for me?
