A gremlin.

Nothing special about switching a major version number, python tuples should compare each number in turn.
Lack of internet connection should still throw the same error code, for UP_TO_DATE = 1
Same with proxy interrupt screens, can't be converted to int.

You can always manually run
Code:
/usr/bin/calibre-upgrade.sh
and it should work manually... maybe the cron job didn't activate? Computer was definitely on at the time?

By default the stdout+stderr logs are piped to /dev/null, which makes it difficult to be sure.

All others fired. I even received the local emails.

The damn thing runs a rather stripped down version of mint I only use with mobaxterm and remote x sessions... I'm only using it to serve my small time webpage, ebook catalogue and as a development box for my autoremote client.

And as a server it HAS to be on 24/7, no? ;F

That issue would be with the official installer. This script will automate the job of downloading and running linux-installer.py (with the appropriate options and stuck in a cron job et cetera) from the calibre GitHub repository, and that script uses tar to unpack the calibre binaries.

Slitaz may not be the best choice of general-use distro on a computer that can support a more powerful OS. It is mainly geared toward very low-resource PCs and having a stripped down system, which doesn't seem to be very compatible with running a high-powered program like calibre.

I came across something, maybe irrelevant, but I'll throw it out anyways...

Fedora seems to not handle /usr/(s)bin-links as debian-based distros do. I had to link to /usr/local/(s)bin/ to be able to use the script as intended

I would be happy to make this work out-of-the-box on Fedora, what is it that they do? Should I just drop the script in /usr/local/sbin/ instead?

I know nothing about Fedora except that spearheaded the move to a unified /usr/bin/ .

I'm currently poking around in getting this into an AUR package, would you be okay with that?

That is an interesting idea, and I think I can manage to put one together tonight, say.

I think I will look into making a systemd timer.

Well, I modified the installer and added a systemd timer, how does it look?

Bonus -- here is my source aurball.

I guess I will upload that in the morning.

Status update -- ran "sudo systemctl start calibre-upgrade.service" and calibre successfully upgraded.

(I did have to rewrite history to wait for network-online.target after a typo had it waiting for a service. So that explains the above edit.)

No need for source, a imple pkgbuild normally suffices, seeing as you host on github

-canned as I did not look into the provided file first-

As I have since uploaded to AUR, just a link would do.

And an aurball includes the post-install hook for auto-activating (still not 100% sure that's desirable...)

The thing I like about the AUR concept (I am using a distro that is based on arch, but a little more userfriendly, Arch is too "hardcore" without a proper install script) is that everything gets packaged so pacman handles (un)installing. A lot less -redacted- then yum/apt approaches and manually compiling/installing software by hand.

I'll look at the package in a few hours, once I finish reinstalling core apps and scripts.
