Anytime I install an app, warehouse becomes unresponsive. The OS says that the app is not responding anymore and I can choose between closing it or waiting. Updates rarely finish because of this; at least the successful finish is not displayed (the update itself seems to have worked since the app updated is available in a newer version).

This is a known bug with latest sailfishos versions: http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p=1514150&postcount=576

Thanks for pointing that out. Waiting patiently for a fix :)

have you noticed ? after latest update 2.1 it works (at least for me) normally :) FINALLY :)

The remove search button doesn't seem to work at all right now, maybe due update. It just activates the text field.

Same here!


I think it is just a field lenght bug

Very necessary program.

Only often when performing various operations for a long time falls into deep sleep. Up to a question of system about the choice between to wait and close.

I built ne (The Nice Editor) for Sailfish OS and uploaded the package to openrepos.net:


When I open the app in Warehouse it starts to list all available packages, containing ne in their name and Warehouse stops responding.

Please check

You should name application with "harbour-" or "com.yourname.appdomain-" prefix to avoid conflicts with default system apps.
"ne" name is too short name, causing sailfishos PackageKit subsystem(which is used by Warehouse), to process all packages to find a reliable installed and available versions on the phone to show the details.

vevgeniev's picture

Thanks, I'll rebuilt the package with a longer name.

Hi, can you provide support for JollaTablet? i.e. i486 architecture

basil's picture

I cannot build&test since my tablet hasn't been delivered. You may find custom build for i486 here: https://openrepos.net/content/abranson/warehouse-jolla-tablet

Thx for the application but today all my repos failed durin update with  status: repos not available, and Details: cannot write file /var/tmp/***/repodata/repomd.xml

basil's picture

Warehouse does not directly uses those files, but system package manager PackageKit does. You should probably check if you have free space available, or check health status of your btrfs file system.

I have a problem with warehouse. Today it told me something like: "opening self-update-window"

After that, it seemed like nothing had changed but many icons weren't loaded. After restarting warehouse the icons are loaded properly but all my enabled repositories are gone. I am able to add new ones but the old ones are gone. When I run "ssu lr" it shows only the ones I added afterwards. No disabled repos or stuff like that.

basil's picture

The banner was "enabling self-update channel". And it seems like ssu has resets its config (or custom user settings) for some reason.

Skillmon's picture

So the only solution I have is manually adding every repo I had?

In addition I have a feature request (not that much of a new request): There was the request of adding the possibility of commenting and rating from within Warehouse. If it's not on your priority list, perhaps adding the possibility of visiting the corresponding page on openrepos.net will be an easy to implement fix.

Regards and thanks for the fast reply


Skillmon's picture

Just found out, that other configurations also went into nirvana. E.g. the location settings for the weather app, haven't found others yet, but perhaps this is just a matter of time.

I have another thing to complain about. The full list of currently installed aps from Warehouse doesn't work (well it starts to show them, but always crashes/stops upon that task).



basil's picture

Building app list function is not optimized. Do not force close application, wait for response, it will be completed.

Are there any plans to enable rating and commenting from within warehouse? Without having to visit openrepos.net from browser?

I installed Sailfish on Nexus 5 and updated to I want to use Warehouse, but I see this after first run or when checking updates. can you help me? I tried some solutions posted to TJC, but no effect.

Your device has invalid date. Check and update your date/time settings.

cocovina's picture

You're right - of course. How could I overlooked this? :o

Thank you!!!

Hello, since January i will say, every time I install or update a program with warehouse, it is slow during the download or during the installation many time sailfish propose to wait or turn of the application. Does anyone have the problem or have an idea how to fix it ?

basil's picture

This is known issue. Fix is under development.

Feature request: In case some dependencie can't be found while installing a package search at all openrepos repos (the ones that are disabled at the client) and if it's found: Ask the user to enable the missing repo.

//EDIT: This will most likely need some API from openrepos.net as temporary adding and removing repos might be way to slow client side.

basil's picture

This will not be implement as this is major security issue: hijack package by major version via enabling repository. One of future updates will disable all publisher repositories as main source of applicationa, and every application will be in self-contained repository: with dependencies automatically detected(packages listed and uploaded by same publisher, or manually selected by the publisher.

V10lator's picture

While you got a point here that's the reason I said "Ask the user to enable the missing repo." - So the user is still responsible for the enabled repos.
Anyhow, seems like you alredy have a better solution in the pipeline. Thanks for the info. :)
Just one last question: How will your solution handle duplicates. Let's say package A from repo X has library C from repo Y as a dependency. Now package B from repo Z has has library C as a dependency, too, but it wants it from repo W. Now the user wants to install A and B, with what library C will he end up? The one installed first, the one with the highest version number (what if both are equal - what if package A explicy says it wants a lower version), ...? Also what happens if library C gets updated in Y while A from X needs a special version (so after the update there's a version missmatch) ?

basil's picture

Default(automatic) dependencies will be filled based on package dependencies list (from deb/rpm), if any of those packages are preset at publisher own repository. After that, you can manually cherry-pick any package to be pulled from any other repository to your application repository.
If you have multiple application depending on same library, which is provided by different repositories, it's package manager job to resolve conflicts and finding apropriate versions.

I have the same problem Manankanchu has, but "pkcon refresh" return anything. Everything seems to work well but enabling some repos, including this one.
