|0007346||Kali Linux||[All Projects] Kali Package Bug||public||2021-09-27 20:15||2021-10-07 06:28|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0007346: 'ranger' removed from Kali Repositories|
During a build test for Kali i3-gaps, initinfosec realized that "ranger" (https://pkg.kali.org/pkg/ranger) was removed from the Kali repositories today (2021-09-27).
Is there a reason why 'ranger' was removed from Kali Linux repositories, despite the repository and package not having any issues (from what I can see)?
|Additional Information||pkg.kali.org URL: https://pkg.kali.org/pkg/ranger|
Debian Git URL: https://salsa.debian.org/debian/ranger.git
ranger has been removed from Debian Testing (and then from Kali) because of this issue:
||I assume once it's fixed, we'll see ranger return to the Kali repositories?|
Yes that's correct. In this case it would be good to look at upstream git repo https://github.com/ranger/ranger to see if this particular issue was already reported upstream.
Moreover it's possible that the issue is fixed in latest tagged version 1.9.3. It would be great is someone could:
- reproduce the issue mentioned at https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=993029
- check if it's still present in 1.9.3
- check if it's still present in latest version from git master branch
If we're lucky it can be solved simply by updating the package to its latest version. Otherwise (if the issue is still present), then it needs to be reported and fixed upsteam.
