Upgrade nightly to r1beta1?

Is it possible to upgrade a nightly build to the beta via the package management system? I don’t have any rewritable media on me at the moment but would like to get testing.

Yes. Use:

pkgman add https://eu.hpkg.haiku-os.org/haiku/r1beta1/$(getarch)/current
pkgman add https://eu.hpkg.haiku-os.org/haikuports/r1beta1/$(getarch)/current

and then run a full-sync.


I tried to do that, but I get the error “Connection refused.” What can I do?

Silly question? did you just copy/paste the url’s with out editing the /$(getarch)/ part with something like (x86_gcc2) or (x86_64) ?

“$(getarch)” is recognised on the commandline and replaced automagically. The resulting list of repositories will have the correct values substituted.

I don’t need to edit out “the /$(getarch)/ part”. Haiku does that automatically.

Oh, so HaikuPorts also has a “r1beta1” branch after all? Though that was decided against.

No, for now this is just an alias of master’s repo. But we have the option to branch it later.

I see. Makes sense. Thanks.
