after unlocking ostree, why the repository can’t fetch updates from Endless repo? does endless repo have similar packages from Debian / Ubuntu repository? Do we need to add the apt-key and sign manually for EOS repository?
after unlocked, add Debian/ubuntu repository work but I’m afraid that will break all the EOS packaging dependencies
even when I tried to install the ubuntu package manual got below errors:
$ sudo dpkg -i v4l2loopback-utils_0.12.5-1ubuntu3_all.deb
dpkg-deb: error: archive ‘v4l2loopback-utils_0.12.5-1ubuntu3_all.deb’ uses unknown compression for member ‘control.tar.zst’, giving up
dpkg: error processing archive v4l2loopback-utils_0.12.5-1ubuntu3_all.deb (–install):
dpkg-deb --control subprocess returned error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:
but when I added the ubuntu repository, and try to install that package, it calls all the necessary dependencies and I stopped there because I don’t want to break the EOS if I continue using ubuntu repository.
Our purpose of unlocking the ostree is to try out the printer or scanner that have released a driver for debian/ubuntu and some other thing like the v4l2loopback for webcam.
from Developers & technicians | Endless OS Support Site there is not enough information to be EOS developer other than testing beta and latest development.
