  • Hi.


    Just tried to install the 1.4.0 installer on Kubuntu 15.10


    It stops with


    'Error running transaction: GDBus.Error:org.debian.apt.TransactionFailed: error-no-package: Package i915-4.3.3-4.2.0-dkms isn't available'


    Also noticed that apt-get update now shows



    W: An error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used. GPG error: wily InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY D14BDB0DB3438B6C

    W: Failed to fetch  


    I have installed the key from also...


    However on a happier note the Fedora 1.4.0 installer works fine.

  • I'm also getting this same error with the 1.4.0 installer:


    "Error running transaction: GDBus.Error:org.debian.apt.TransactionFailed: error-no-package: Package i915-4.3.3-4.2.0-dkms isn't available"


    Running vanilla Ubuntu desktop 15.10 x64 - a near-fresh installation.

  • Hi. There'e been some sort of mix up with the keys - looks like the wrong public key was published.
    Currently chasing it down.

  • Thanks Vivek, i'll await news..


    Will the .deb package be updated ?


    p.s the last release (1.2.1) fixed a few issues for me compared to the default version of the intel driver in Ubuntu 15.10


    i.e it fixed a crash using google map street view with h/w acceleration enabled in Chrome.

  • Yes - the rebuild is running now.

  • Great to hear. Thanks for the update.

    Out of pure curiosity, will the rebuild bump up the version number to something such as 1.4.1?

  • My guess would be not - versions don't get bumped automatically - but I've no direct access to the build system(s).

  • Looks like the updated packages have landed - no version bump.

  • Thanks for getting the info to the release team, and kudos to them for getting the issues fixed within just a couple of days.


    installed without issue on vanilla Ubuntu 15.10 x64.

  • Not a problem. We're looking at where the process broke down and there are a few places where we can make it a bit more foolproof so hopefully we won't make this mistake again.
