Hi,

While attempting to solve a PiSi-related problem last night, I tried several suggestions which I saw here in the User Forum. One suggestion involved using the command # pisi check. When I ran that command (which took some time to finish), PiSi reported that I have 10 corrupt packages.

I have searched the forum but I could not find any mention of how to solve this situation. Is the correct solution to uninstall the corrupt packages and then immediately reinstall them?

The reason I'm asking is that 5 of the corrupt packages are components of TeX Live (yet TeX Live is currently working fine for me). If I uninstall these packages, won't they pull along other TeX Live dependencies with them?

TeX Live was a large download and I would like to avoid uninstalling / reinstalling it, if possible ...

Thanks for any advice you might have.

Here is the answer I got:

There was a bug in pisi check and pisi build. Generated sha1sum of symlink
files in the package and calculated sha1sum of symlink files on the system
were different. These all seem to be false positives of this bug.

So there is nothing to do with no real problem. Next updates of these packages
probably will fix this issue.

Hi, trixon,

Thanks for your prompt reply and the quoted explanation. I'm relieved to hear that this is a non-problem. I will leave my "corrupt" packages alone, and wait to see what happens with the next round of updates.

With best wishes,
