debian package naming scheme
Nuxeo DM debian packages used to be labeled “nuxeo-dm”. Snapshots for 5.5 are now labeled “nuxeo”.
Will it stay this way ? Will “apt update” handle it gracefully ? (moving from nuxeo-jboss to nuxeo-tomcat to nuxem-dm was a pain in the … bottom)
It will keep the “nuxeo” name as the different products are being merged into a single one.
Update through apt will not pick the new package automatically, but when installing the nuxeo package it will detect the nuxeo-dm one and offer to move your data and configuration to the new package.
This functionality should be in the snapshots in a day or two.
The latest snapshot package has the migration code. Known failure conditions:
- open connection to the previous package autoconfigured database
- open connection using the previous autoconfigured database user
- open file il the previous package data dir (previous package being nuxeo-dm, nuxeo-dam or nuxeo-cmf)
