[jitsi-users] Jitsi on linux - nightly updates


#1

Hey,

I've installed Jitsi 2.3 nightly on my ubuntu PC. The instructions on
your website (https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/nightly/debian/) claim
that the jitsi debian repository will automatically be added to the
system upon installing a package. I've installed jitsi 2.3.4872, and I
can't seem to update it by using the system package manager apt. Doing
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade will only install the ubuntu
updates, but not a newer version of jitsi... even though there are
newer nightly packages available for download
(https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/nightly/debian/).

Can someone please elaborate how the jitsi updates are supposed to
work on linux? Because afaik this should have worked, but doesn't.


#2

Do you see the Jitsi repo being added to your sources?

Do things work if you add it manually?

Sorry for the late reply.

In the /etc/apt/sources.list.d folder there are two files called
jitsi.list and jitsi.list.distUpgrade. The first file contains this
text:

### THIS FILE IS AUTOMATICALLY CONFIGURED ###
# You may comment out this entry, but any other modifications may be lost.
deb http://download.jitsi.org/deb unstable/

The second one contains the same text:

### THIS FILE IS AUTOMATICALLY CONFIGURED ###
# You may comment out this entry, but any other modifications may be lost.
deb http://download.jitsi.org/deb unstable/

When I do "apt-get update" as root I get these lines among others:

Ign http://download.jitsi.org unstable/ InRelease
Hit http://download.jitsi.org unstable/ Release.gpg
Hit http://download.jitsi.org unstable/ Release
Hit http://download.jitsi.org unstable/ Packages
Ign http://download.jitsi.org unstable/ Translation-en_US
Ign http://download.jitsi.org unstable/ Translation-en

The version of my jitsi is 2.3.4872. After doing "apt-get upgrade" as
root I don't see a jitsi package in the package list. The other
updates install normally.

EDIT: I noticed that the message didn't appear on the mailing list, so
I resent this message to users@jitsi.org

Hi,

when you installed jitsi it adds the stable repo, which build version
is older than those in nightly. In order to use nightly build line you
must add the nightly repo for debian packages in sources.list for
example : "deb http://download.jitsi.org/nightly/deb unstable/"

Thanks for pointing this out, I'll see what happens, if I modify the
repo link to the one you posted. Sorry, thought I was already using a
nightly repository due to the "unstable" keyword in the deb entry:
http://download.jitsi.org unstable/

So, even when installing a nightly jitsi package, it adds a stable
repository? Shouldn't this be changed to use nightly repos? I'm pretty
sure I installed a nightly version. Can this happen when a user first
installs a stable jitsi package, and then uninstalls it + switches to
nightly?

Regards!

Hi again,

no this is how it is supposed to work, nightlies are the work in
progress packages and they will become one day stable, just with
copying the same package, not re-packaging it again. This is how all
current builds work for all operating systems. For example on windows
and mac people need to set a provisioning link so they can keep up
with nightlies.

When someone is using stable he can easily switch to nightlies by
adding new repo in debian, or changing a setting when talking about
windows and mac. And the stable will update to nightly without the
user need to download uninstall and install.

Perhaps some could explain this further as I had no idea that the
nightlies could auto-update. I can't find any instructions on how to
make it do so, so it would be great if someone could provide some.

Thanks,

Hello.

I've replaced the debian repository as you suggested, and updated &&
upgraded. Jitsi has now been updated to 2.3.4975-1.

Thanks!

Hi,

everything is here:
https://jitsi.org/index.php/Main/Download#latestnightly

For Debian and Ubuntu there is a sublink with explanation in brackets:
https://jitsi.org/Main/DebianNightlyRepository

And for Windows and Mac you must copy the link from the section below
downloads section (If you are using our stable build line, you can
switch to nightly builds using the following provisioning URLs for
Windows and Mac OS). Which are:
https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/nightly/provisioning-windows.properties
https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/nightly/provisioning-mac.properties

And need to enter it in provisioning settings, like on the screenshot
(choose the link depending the OS used).

Hope it helps :slight_smile:

Regards
damencho

Thanks damencho, that does help a lot. :slight_smile:

Before it wasn't clear at all as the provisioning link gives

net.java.sip.communicator.UPDATE_LINK=https\://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/nightly/windows/versionupdate.properties

and even taking a guess that I should remove the bit before = still
results in what appears to be an invalid URL and your screenshot shows
what it should be, which doesn't seem to be explained anywhere else.

Having entered it now, it still doesn't find any updates when I do
"Check for updates" though, even though I'm on 4958 and the current
nightly is 4976.

Derek

Hi Damiam,

You may want to update the link here:
https://jitsi.org/Main/Download#stableline
If you are using our nightly build line, you can switch back to stable
using the following provisioning URLs for
Windows<https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/provisioning-windows.properties>
and Mac OS X <https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/provisioning-mac.properties>

https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/provisioning-windows.properties

net.java.sip.communicator.UPDATE_LINK=http\://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/windows/versionupdate.properties

https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/provisioning-mac.properties

net.java.sip.communicator.UPDATE_LINK=https\://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/macosx/sparkle/updates.xml

Unless this translates correctly as you copy and paste this into the
provisioning URL for Jitsi.

Best,

Jungle

On which OS? Did you restarted as noted on the provisioning config panel?

Hi,

no you are not suppose to open the link, you just need to use the link as it is:
"https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/provisioning-windows.properties".

Hi Damiam,

You may want to update the link here:
https://jitsi.org/Main/Download#stableline
If you are using our nightly build line, you can switch back to stable using
the following provisioning URLs for Windows and Mac OS X

https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/provisioning-windows.properties

net.java.sip.communicator.UPDATE_LINK=http\://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/windows/versionupdate.properties

https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/provisioning-mac.properties

net.java.sip.communicator.UPDATE_LINK=https\://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/macosx/sparkle/updates.xml

Unless this translates correctly as you copy and paste this into the
provisioning URL for Jitsi.

Best,

Jungle

Hi,

everything is here:
https://jitsi.org/index.php/Main/Download#latestnightly

For Debian and Ubuntu there is a sublink with explanation in brackets:
https://jitsi.org/Main/DebianNightlyRepository

And for Windows and Mac you must copy the link from the section below
downloads section (If you are using our stable build line, you can
switch to nightly builds using the following provisioning URLs for
Windows and Mac OS). Which are:
https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/nightly/provisioning-windows.properties
https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/nightly/provisioning-mac.properties

And need to enter it in provisioning settings, like on the screenshot
(choose the link depending the OS used).

Hope it helps :slight_smile:

Hi Damian,

That's understood but make these links more obvious:

https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/nightly/provisioning-windows.properties
https://download.jitsi.org/jitsi/nightly/provisioning-mac.properties

As of now someone needs to right-click and choose to copy the link and then
paste into jitsi. if they click the link and copy what's on the page, that
won't work.

Ah, OK that wasn't at all clear from the website which says "using the
following provisioning URLs for Windows and Mac OS X" with clickable
links for each OS. The natural inclination is to click on a clickable
link as it appears to be directing you to do so and this results in
some text, which it seems natural to copy and paste into the
Provisioning box in Jitsi's settings.

So maybe it would be better to just put the links as plain text on the
Download page, as it just seems to be more confusing than helpful to
have them clickable. Or at least add to the sentence something like
"(don't left-click these, right-click, Copy shortcut and paste into
Options - Provisioning)".

Derek

Hi,

strange. Can you check for any white space maybe in the box. Never
seen this before. Can you also check the logs for any error, or just
send them.
