Dependency issue

I have created an installer and set up a clean installation for testing, and found the installer fails if there are unmet dependencies, is it possible to get the installer to also install dependencies? I have listed them in the PK_DEPENDS which is why the installation fails, but I thought it would get them if available... Would I need to create CUSTOMHOOK_PRERUN_SCRIPT and use that to check for and install dependencies?

Re: Dependency issue

Installer will try to satisfy all dependencies listed in PK_DEPENDS, the same way as 'apt-get' command. If there are some dependencies unavailable, installer will refuse installation and report a dependencies error.

Re: Dependency issue

Well that's an odd one, I will investigate further, but I have included the package in PK_DEPENDS and it knows that it is required, but I have to run

sudo apt-get -f install 

to get dependencies actually installed...

Re: Dependency issue

You can attach your 'installer.cfg' here or send it to support@q4os.org , we will check it in action.

Re: Dependency issue

There is also 'SETUP_TYPE' parameter in 'installer.cfg', it should be set to '2' to check all dependencies, see 'q4os_setup.cfg.sample'
