koreader-cervantes dependencies appear to be corrupt

I've recently updated the version of koreader on my Cervantes 3 (there's some bugfixes in there that I needed as my hacked alternatives were... not good), and I see there's some new .debs to install in https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=311571.

Unfortunately, it appears that the iproute2 dependency is corrupt; dpkg -i complains when it attempts to decompress/hash the package.

Could someone please either update that dep *or* please point me to how you're building deps for the (now gone) variant of wheezy the Cervantes 3 runs?

Cheers!

The koreader-cervantes-arm-cervantes-linux-gnueabi-v2019.04.zip file is for those devices.

The Debian packages are for "regular" desktop Debian. They draw on SDL and don't use the special E Ink driver commands.

No; the Cervantes runs an old Debian wheezy distro and is missing some modern niceties. As per that thread, Cervantes users need both koreader *and* some .debs for the full experience (you'll note that kodeps is compiled for `armel`, not for x86 ). safemode, unzip and iputils-ping all seem fine, but the iproute2 .deb in that .tgz fails to install, and I'm unsure what tools I'd need to rebuild it myself (koxtoolchain and a src deb maybe, but I've no idea where that src deb is as Wheezy's basically vanished from the internet).

The md5sum for iproute2 in both ko-deps.tgz and ko-deps-latest.tgz matches, so unfortunately I can't just grab a working version from the old package.

The Debian archive should have all of Wheezy, and I imagine these packages shouldn't be too hard to backport from Jessie or even a newer version. There's also a wheezy-backports archive. Is there anything special about iproute2 over the iproute package?

Just change your sources.list to the relevant http://archive.debian.org/ stuff.

My apologies for the misunderstanding btw, but the architecture isn't relevant to it.

koreader-2019.04-amd64.deb
koreader-2019.04-armel.deb
koreader-2019.04-armhf.deb

You could run one of those on your Raspberry Pi or something, but presumably also on a Cervantes device with an X server. It'd just be very stupid.

Btw, you said iproute2, but it looks like that iproute 2012 version is just the regular Wheezy one?

Code:

In any case, besides using the repo you can also just grab 'em manually:

I'm slamming my head into a wall for not remembering archive.debian.org, *sigh*. For whatever reason, after digging through a huge stack of the current Debian project's site, I could only find dead links to wheezy packages. Dead links like https://packages.debian.org/wheezy/iproute everywhere.

It's not that I want one of the koreader.debs -- I get that they won't work , I've got the cervantes zip -- I just need one of the packages (iproute2) from ko-deps-latest.tar.gz in that thread, otherwise when koreader interacts with the wifi chip it crashes.

Thanks for pointing me to the archive, that's immensely helpful . I'll report back once it's up and running.
