Amazfish, Chum and some advice for a newbie

Hello everyone, I have a Pinetime on the way and wished to install Amazfish to poke around the app while I wait. However, I find myself a little confused to what I’m meant to do. I’ve attempted to figure it out for myself to no avail, from reading comments I see that you are meant to install the Chum repository from here:
https://build.sailfishos.org/package/binary/sailfishos:chum/sailfishos-chum?arch=i586&filename=sailfishos-chum-0.2.0-1.4.1.jolla.noarch.rpm&repository=4.1.0.24_i486

But where exactly am I installing it, like what exactly am I looking for? I feel like I’m missing something obvious, apologies if this turns out to be something simple, but I’m a little confused.

Thanks in advance.

sailfish-chum package adds repo to /usr/share/ssu/features.d/sailfish-chum.ini

If you want to check it you should extract for example sailfishos-chum-0.2.0-1.4.1.jolla.noarch.rpm package.

Hello, thank you for a speedy reply!

So, how do I do this? I really feel like I’m missing something basic. I think I may need someone to really dumb this down for me, I just don’t seem to get it.

I think you should get it this https://chumrpm.netlify.app/

As far as I know (I’m sure someone will correct me, if I’m wrong :wink:), amazfish is not availble from chum, so installing chum will not help you…

To install amazfish, I suggest you install “storeman” first:
https://openrepos.net/content/osetr/storeman-installer

Once installed, open storeman and search for amazfish. To install use the pull-down menu “Add repository”, wait a few seconds for the operation to finish, then use the “Install” pull-down option.

That worked an absolute treat, thank you!

Oh no its not available on Chum, but according to storeman the supporting packages are.

Could you help me to please? I hav also a new Sony Xperia 10ii and got errors if I try to install chum and Anazfish (harbour-amazfish-2.0.3-1.1.1.jolla.aarch64.rpm)??? Its shows that the libKDb3.so.4(64bit) is missing. Thx in advance

first: it is called chum :smiley:

I have solve this allown :slight_smile: I installed chum from here and than amazfish. Thanks for your help… :+1:t2:

I was in the same situation when I had to install Amazfish, indeed the OpenRepos page should mention those detailed steps for normal users :slight_smile: :

  • Go to Index of /obs/sailfishos:/chum
  • Open the latest <sailfish-version>_<any-arch> directory and then the noarch/ directory.
  • Download the sailfishos-chum-<version>.jolla.noarch.rpm

Chum GUI is getting an update that would help with enabling repository as well. We hope to release the corresponding update soon.

Yesterday i saw the available update and also a second one for osm scout server . installed both and got back the message 'successful installed ’ But Chum GUI looks still the same and has no new functions and OSM Scout server shows still the old version number . Tried twice. 'installation successful ’ but nothing changes .
SFOS 4.3.0.12 @ X10.
What can be the reason ?

Haven’t released Chum update yet. Hold on :slight_smile:
