I am aware of the need to store private sources and packages on NuGet and then use the AU module to update them, but the detailed configuration and operation is beyond me.
A person groping really slow, who can teach me.

Maybe you're still sleeping. Jet lag is different.

Or who can help to create a version of Firefox for China, Firefox.com.cn, which is not an international version, but a customized local version for people to use. The search engine has been changed from Google to baidu, but also added WeChat, and the synchronization server is in China.

@forestnet Have you looked at the documentation on how to create packages?

Hello. Are there currently still problems with the chocolatey server? For each package I try to install, the install fails with an "unable to resolve dependency" error. This is on a clean install of chocolatey v0.10.15.

@rvdginste according to https://status.chocolatey.org/
yes
Paul Broadwith
@pauby
@rvdginste See the status page - can you tell me which packages you are trying to install (the main ones not the dependencies that are failing)?
@AdmiringWorm beat me to it :smile:

@AdmiringWorm
only by a second :smile:

@pauby dotnetcore version 2.1.14
dotnetcore not installed. An error occurred during installation: Unable to resolve dependency 'dotnetcore-runtime (= 2.1.14)'.
If I do a straight install of dotnetcore-runtime, that one will complain about dotnetcore-runtime.install. And if I install that one, that one in turn will complain about its dependencies...

@rvdginste This looks like an issue that we are investigating. Keep an eye on the status page.

@rvdginste fixed just now
give it another shot
As Paul mentioned, jump over to the status page as well - we've been working on stabilizing the site and we moved FindPackagesById to use the Lucene index but didn't account for the skip token, which was being ignored
and that caused all dependencies with more than 30 versions to completely stop working if you were using the community repository.
chocolatey/chocolatey.org#765 is the issue for reference
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder

@/all We deployed out some changes to help stabilize the site at 12:15 UTC (6:15 AM UTC), but unintentionally we caused all dependencies to stop working. So if you use the community repository (https://chocolatey.org/api/v2), you will have seen some "Unable to resolve dependency" errors (https://github.com/chocolatey/chocolatey.org/issues/765). We've backed out the affected code, redeployed, and verified it's working again.

Our plan is to reintroduce the use index changes to the community production site once we ensure that the skip token is working correctly. Please continue to monitor https://status.chocolatey.org as we continue to provide updates.

@ferventcoder @pauby Tried again and now it's working fine. Thanks!

I've been trying to install qbittorrent with chocolatey using choco install qbittorrent --install-args="'/DIR=D:\QBitTorrent\'" -y but it doesn't install me in that directory. What am I doing wrong? I'm on Windows btw, and I feel like I've used that same command before and it worked
rocribera
@rocribera
It's about QBitTorrent, because I tried with some other software and it worked just fine

Why doesn't Chocolatey have any documents in Chinese?
I would like to ask whether, as long as the nupkg file is generated, Chocolatey can install the software, even if I put the nupkg file on the share can also install??In that case, it would be convenient to install on the internal LAN.
If I want to share and search my package on the Internet, my own private source, of course I want it to be free, don't buy a server, what are the ways to do that?
forestnet
@forestnet
Also, does Chocolatey have a Chinese community or chat group?
I am in xiamen, China, China (GMT+8)
rocribera
@rocribera
There are programs that even if I use --install-args="'/DIR=C:\git'" it still installs wherever it wants to. Is there a way to avoid that?
Rob Reynolds
@ferventcoder
@rocribera what you are using is an example - you will need to inspect the package and learn what the underlying installer is, then you can adjust your argument appropriately. HTH
And yes, it could be a pain in the butt - that's Windows installer ecosystem though. There is a reason we brought about choco Professional and the ubiquitous install directory switch, so you could pass one thing and let choco figure it out for you

Hi, If I push a new version of a package, which in turn brings incompatible change and could bring doom to the packages which depend on it, should I change dependent packagea with fixed version number?
this also means that minor updates of those packages needs to be done just to reflect this fixed version, but also later versions should also be supported, for the root package, in the same time
rocribera
@rocribera
@ferventcoder how would I inspect the package? Is there somewhere I can learn how to do that and what argument adjusts appropriately to each type?
Manfred Wallner
@mwallner
@rocribera - go to the package page on chocolatey.org/packages, go to "Files" and have a look at "chocolateyinstall.ps1"

@zverev-iv The majority of moderators are volunteers who do work through packages in their own time. They will get to your package as soon as they can.

Hi! Anibody knows, how can i volunteer this as moderator? ;) I'm waiting for 12 days allready with my package https://chocolatey.org/packages/lazydocker

@zverev-iv Use the 'Contact Site Admins' link from your package page.

@pauby thx.

Is there any way to have $env:ChocolateyPackageVersion replaced with choco download? There's the possibility to replace variables, but since this is an environment variable I was not successful to replace it
Paul Broadwith
@pauby
@pascalberger What's the use case for this?

@mica
What's the best way to deal with a package that requires previous versions to be uninstalled before upgrade? How can I find the uninstaller path that's used by the Auto Uninstaller? I was thinking to run that with chocolateyBeforeModify.ps1
Maurice Kevenaar
@mkevenaar
@mica have a look at the PyCharm package, I think that might help

I'm getting errors while pushing the latest pre-release of mypaint ("An error has occurred. It's possible the package version already exists on the repository.") the latest version on Chocolatey is 2.0.0-alpha-12, but the latest available is 2.0.0-alpha-13. The only major difference is they are switching to temporary urls, so I've started embedding the installer.
Paul Broadwith
@pauby
@digitalcoyote It's a known issue. Just keep pushing (note that I've not looked to see if there are any other issues with pushing that package so I'm assuming you have).
@pascalberger I'm meaning what is the use case for replacing the Chocolatey Environment Variables specifically?
zverev-iv
@zverev-iv
hi! what are the requirements to the participant for moderator rights?
Kim J. Nordmo
@AdmiringWorm
@zverev-iv there are no specific requirements AFAIK, other than what is described here: https://chocolatey.org/docs/moderation#roles
Curtis Carter
@digitalcoyote
@pauby Thank You. I was worried there might be some restriction on how pre-releases are versioned. I realized that due to the versioning scheme that the mypaint project uses the au module doesn't detect it as a new version, and I was worried that this might be related to restrictions in Chocolatey.
