Post checkaptgpg
What is the status of this handy-dandy item for M11? I searched the forum but found nothing on it since this thread.

Has anyone tried to update the M 8.5 version? Is it possible to get this done before M11 Final?

(Bet you missed me...)
-----------------------------------
EDIT: I copied the script from M 8.5, changed ownership to root, and ran it:
Code:
[root@BondDesktop Scripts]# sh checkaptgpg

    Good GPG signature found.

Looks good, but two of my repos not listed in the output give GPG errors when I run Synaptic:
Code:
W: GPG error: http://download.virtualbox.org squeeze Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 54422A4B98AB5139
W: GPG error: http://debian.gfoss.it squeeze Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 87B91D5C6A7E8181
Looks like *we* are close, though.

It would take a just a minute to repackage, though I'd like to redo the packaging to just use debhelper with a tiny rules file and /debian/install file, to make it really simple. With that technique, you can make deb packages out of scripts or documentation, such as a manual.

Great, thanks. Now if someone will take a look at the script to see why it missed those repos we should be all set.

Anyone interested and able?

Where it really belongs is in Synaptic, but that would take some serious coding prowess. I think if we get it so it works again, we or Warren should send it upstream.

You are right, Synaptic should be able to download the keys when needed.

But...that script is still faulty (> OP). Also, didn't we have a version that only put in a single menu entry that required root access? The double entry is clumsy. Maybe I had the earlier version installed in my M 8.5.

I believe we need some *script masters* to get involved here, though so far this topic has attracted no interest from them.

BTW, I recommend we put the code in Github, it's easier to manage and check.

There's a normal and an "as-root" desktop file in the source, so I installed both. Just removing the entry for the normal one in the /debian/install file will only install the as-root. This is a native MEPIS package, so we also don't need to worry about altering any upstream source when we build it, we just have to make sure not to add any "-x" updates, instead the versioning should be something like 1.0.1mcr110+1, 1.0.2mcr110+1, 1.0.2mcr110+2 and so on.

The source code is there in my link, too, if it needs to be in github.
