Debian packages?

Hi!

Just wondering if anyone has created a .deb package for 2.0.x ?

Even an .rpm maybe ?

Robert

Well - I’ve seen mention of a spec file in the latest distro.
Shouldn’t be that hard to have the rpm from that.---- On 22 Nov 2001, at 16:56, Robert Passlow wrote: ----

The right way to do this is to take the debian/ directory from
the Debian unstable webrt package, and plonk it into place, making
the obvious updates.

I’ve looked at the listing, and it’s right!

'cept webrt in debian is from RT 1.0.6 or so. Someone’s working on real
debian packaging of RT2, but we haven’t seen anything yet.

Unless I’m not mistaken, this is the specifics of the webrt package for
the unstable release which indicate version 1.0.6 ?

I haven’t, but I’m seriously considering it—there’s some question in
my mind of where to put the various web bits, but the libraries are a
no-brainer, and the rest of it doesn’t look hard.

If I end up doing it, it’ll probably leave a lot of things to be done
by hand—I’ve not got the time to really do a big all-singing,
all-dancing configuration bit.

Within those parameters, though, the hardest part is figuring out
what-all packages the thing depends on. It’s quite a list. :slight_smile:

Mike.

You probably want to talk to sami:

Except that that’s already been done for you:

Should be an up to date list of the required packages needed to install
on debian…
