To test any addon that isn't in the stable branch of IPfire you have to make a tiny modification of your pakfire.conf. You need access to a shell on your IPfire. Please change to following:
Change in file /opt/pakfire/etc/pakfire.conf :
$version = "2.13";
$version = "2.13.1";
After that execute:
pakfire update --force
You are now inside the testing branch. These addons aren't stable and only for testing purposes. Please install this addons only if you know what you are doing…
If you want to return to the stable branch, the following files must be processed:
Change the Version
... $version = "2.13.1"; ...
... $version = "2.13"; ...
Change 71 to 70.
pakfire upgrade --force
There you should see the following:
[root@yoursystemname core]# pakfire upgrade --force CORE UPGR: Upgrading from release 70 to 71 core-upgrade-2.13... 100.00% |=============================>| 2.81 MB PAKFIRE UPGR: core-upgrade-71: Decrypting... PAKFIRE UPGR: core-upgrade-71: Upgrading files and running post-upgrading scripts... PAKFIRE UPGR: core-upgrade-71: Finished. Core-Update 2.13 Release: 70 -> 71
Now you're back on the current version of stable. Here, the update script overrides all existing files, thus changes of the stable branch are effective too.
